Music For “Losers”

By RabbitEars The next album in the series of Workout Mixes inspired by The Biggest Loser looks to put all memories of Jock Jams out of your mind (if it wasn’t already) by using sports anthems as its theme. The Biggest Loser Sports Anthems Workout Mix features high-energy favorites like “Let’s Get It Started,” “Don’t Stop Believin,” “We Will Rock You,” “I Like to Move It” and “Everybody Dance Now.” Like the other Workout Mixes, Sports Anthems is 60 minutes long, and its amplified beats-per-minute help users keep up a powerful exercise pace, becoming sort of a personal trainer to […]

Glen Campbell (And Kids!) On BIO Channel’s “The Chris Isaak Hour” Thursday, 10pm ET

By ButtonKnows Wichita Lineman? Check. Galveston? Check. Rhinestone Cowboy? Check, check and check. Tommy Smothers saddled up on a hippopotamus? GRAVY! If it’s been a while since you’ve seen television’s original Good Time guy, Glen Campbell, on the tube, Thursday night’s episode of The Chris Isaak Hour, has everything you’re hoping for and then some. With one caveat. Because Campbell’s public appearances have been few and far between of late, you may need a few moments to adjust to the reality that the once boyish-faced Campbell is now 70-something, not above a little Burt Reynolds-esque “freshening” and sometimes a tad […]

Fleetwood Mac Fans! Stevie Nicks Guests On BIO’s “The Chris Isaak Hour” Thursday At 10pm ET

By ButtonKnows I know me some Fleetwood Mac and I love me my Stevie Nicks. So much so that my purse is crafted (by Karla of Chicago’s “Bagitude,” not me and some duct tape) of an actual Rumours album cover in homage to the multiple discs I wore out and replaced. And I still wish I would have tried a little harder to convince my only daughter’s dad to let me name her Rhiannon. A little, anyway. So fellow fanatics, let me spare you some opening-credit sweats — the Stevie Nicks that appears on Chris Isaak’s retro-cool sofa in Thursday […]

U2 On “Late Show With David Letterman”

With the economic news just getting ever more bleak and everyone and his brother looking to cut spending, I’ve been trying to encourage people to get out and spend a little of that money they’ve been saving, and looking anywhere but in the headlines for anything that might drag a bit of hope into the picture. It may not be the biggest potential cash infusion into the economy, but with a new U2 album out today, the oft-cited “biggest band in the world” is pulling a high-profile weeklong guest appearance on CBS’ “Late Show With David Letterman.” Letterman brought them […]

Black History Month 2009 Is HERE

Posted by: kjpaloucek Unless you’re living under a rock, you should be aware that Black History Month has a bit more to celebrate this year than in previous years. Thankfully, that means that there’s a bit more to look forward to in terms of meaningful Black History Month-themed programming on TV … because, frankly, we know — things had been getting a little wanting during February. (An explicit reminder to network programmers: Slotting repeated showings of Pootie Tang is not only NOT acceptable Black History Month programming, it diminishes the dignity of the occasion.) Here’s an overview of some the […]

Crushin’ on Nickelodeon

Posted By RabbitEars Isn’t it romantic? Well, not to me, personally, but I’m sure plenty of teeny- and tweeny-boppers will be crushing on Nickelodeon’s “Crush Night” programming event, airing Feb. 7, the week before Valentine’s Day, from 8-9:30pm ET/PT. Pop idol David Archuleta and iCarly star Miranda Cosgrove co-host the event, which celebrates teen romance with songs (Archuleta performs his current hit “Crush”) and the premieres of some new episodes of hot Nick shows. First up, Archuleta plays himself in “iRocked the Vote,” a new episode of iCarly, as a contestant on an American Idol-like singing competition series who gets […]

VH1’s Tribute To The Decade Is “Totally Awesome”

In case you haven’t noticed, VH1 loves the ’80s. We’re not just talking about the dozens — or is it hundreds? — of hours of programming the network has devoted to allowing celebrity panelists to wax nostalgic over every toy, trend and trinket the decade produced. VH1’s “celebreality” phenomenon will not allow the ’80s to die — or its has-beens to go unemployed. (And for that, Tina Yothers, C.C. DeVille and Hulk Hogan are thankful.) Now it’s time to take things to the next level. A totally awesome level. On Nov. 4, VH1 will premiere the purportedly “lost” ’80s comedy […]
