It’s tough getting up and singing in front of people, even if you’re not having to deal with getting lowered into a tank full of snakes. But that’s the type of challenge contestants face on truTV’s outrageous new competition series Killer Karaoke, which premieres 9pm Friday. The show could not have picked a more appropriate host than Jackass star Steve-O, who brought his usual candor to our “7 Questions.” You’re at a magazine rack and can only pick three titles. Which ones do you choose? Maxim. I don’t know if you want me to qualify my answer, but I prefer […]

Brian Austin Green talks about Megan Fox’s guest spot on “Wedding Band”

Seeing Megan Fox pop up on a show fronted by her hubby, Brian Austin Green, might seem natural, but in truth it was something neither ever thought would happen. Despite the couple’s highly visible status, neither of them crave the spotlight when it comes to their personal lives, and they figured that viewers seeing them onscreen together would distract from the story they were trying to tell. Still, Fox does turn up on Saturday’s episode of Wedding Band — airing at 10pm ET — playing an actress on a popular sci-fi show who has a fling with Tommy (Green), the hunky lead […]

“7 Questions” With … Brian Austin Green of TBS’ “Wedding Band”

Brian Austin Green is happy to just be playing a hard-partying ladies’ man on TV, having long passed the time when he found that lifestyle enjoyable. In TBS’ bawdy but heartfelt comedy Wedding Band — premiering Nov. 10 at 10pm — he plays Tommy, the frontman for Mother of the Bride, a group of four buddies who aren’t ready to give up the dream of being rock stars. In real life, the 39-year-old former Beverly Hills, 90210 star says he mostly avoids the nightlife, having recently welcomed a baby boy with wife Megan Fox, who guest stars on an episode of […]

“Crossfire Hurricane” on HBO documents the rise of The Rolling Stones

Crossfire Hurricane on HBO Nov. 15 documents the rise of The Rolling Stones from “the band everybody hated to the band everybody loves.” The Rolling Stones were the bad boys of the 1960s British Invasion, the sexually charged, rebellious foil to the clean-cut, “I Want to Hold Your Hand” Beatles. The Beatles lasted only 10 years together. The Stones have been at it for 50 years. The Stones’ golden anniversary is celebrated with the new documentary Crossfire Hurricane (HBO, Nov. 15 at 9pm ET), which chronicles the band’s evolution from, as Mick Jagger puts it, “the band everybody hated to […]

Ken Burns’ “The Dust Bowl” explores worst man-made ecological disaster in U.S. history

They recall the days turning black, the winds whipping through towns, taking with them their family’s livelihoods, the soil on which they farmed. In those natural disasters, thousands died but no one is sure just how many. Survivors of the dust storms of the 1930s tell their stories in Ken Burns’ oral history documentary The Dust Bowl, premiering on PBS Nov. 18-19. “They used to say no one will watch, no one has the attention span,” Burns says of films tackling history’s tough subjects. But he has proved naysayers wrong before with his award-winning long-form documentaries on the Civil War, […]

Mad Men wins Best Period-Piece Drama in Channel Guide’s 2012 Viewer’s Voice Awards

By the time Jessica Pare had “Zou Bisou Bisou”-ed her way into all future lists of TV’s Most Memorable Moments, that 17-month wait for Season 5 was all but forgotten, and completely forgiven. Season 5 went on to give us more signature moments and messy ethical dilemmas, including Joan’s carnal offering to a prospective client, Lane Pryce’s tragic suicide, Peggy leaving the firm, Sally Draper’s continuing coming-of-age, and (perhaps not so shocking) Don leaving Megan. Season 6 will be worth the wait, however long it may be. Best Period-Piece Drama — Winner: Mad Men Mad Men/AMC 38% Boardwalk Empire/HBO 27% […]

NBA season preview 2012-13

NBA season preview 2012-13: The top teams who’ll contend for the NBA championship and the top national TV games to watch this season. Sharing the wealth was not on the minds of the NBA’s elite teams over the summer, at least when it came to talent on the court. The handful of teams capable of winning a title either added big-name stars or kept the ones they had, widening the gap between the Association’s haves and have-nots. Here’s what the top teams were up to in the offseason: Heat Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis are taking their talents to South […]
