Wed. Sep.7th – Tube Trash

THE BUZZ

…LAST NIGHT – AMERICA’S GOT TALENT:

– It was top ten night as the acts all performed for a shot in tonight’s final four. Last year’s winner Michael Grimm started things off, and showed why he was the champ, with an awesome performance. He is currently on tour opening for Stevie Nicks. As for the top 10, performances for many weren’t as good as they were in previous weeks, and that includes my fave, 11 year old Anna Graceman, who did Cyndi Lauper’s ‘True Colors’ last night. Here is a little taste w/ one of the top performances last night, and Poplyfe w/ their Jackson 5 medley.

…TONIGHT – BIG BROTHER:

– With Kahlia & Porsche on the block, they get a chance to save themselves tonight w/ the veto competition. Little does the ‘Big Brother’ house know is that tonight is a special Wednesday eviction night. It has to be done, as the finale is just one week away!

…RESCUE ME WRAPS:

– The Denis Leary FX show ends this evening after 6 seasons. It might be fitting considering that the show was based on the aftermath of 9/11, and this Sunday marks the 10th anniversary of that historic tragedy. A bittersweet year for Leary? He is a little down on the fact that this show is over, but, his beloved Boston Bruins did win the Stanley Cup earlier this year, now didn’t they?

…AXEL FOLEY’S NEW GIG:

– In case you were under a rock in the past 24 hours, Eddie Murphy has been announced as the host for the 2012 Oscars. I think that he is going to do a good job, but, it’s just rather  odd, isn’t it? Despite his own Oscar nom in 2006 for ‘Dreamgirls’, you never would have figured that he would be a shoo-in for the gig… unless it was in 1987! The show airs February 26th.

…AMERICA’S MOST WANTED…STILL WANTED:

– After Fox pulled the plug on this hit show, Lifetime, of all networks, has come on board to pick it up for another season. It was a great run w/ Fox and 24 years on the air. John Walsh will be back for season 25, which is a lifetime for most TV shows.

…AND THE BACHELOR IS…:

– It is now 100% official, Ben Flajnik is the new ‘Bachelor’. He was the guy who was rejected by Ashley on the last season of ‘The Bachelorette’. The 28 year old will be looking for love, in all the wrong places this January. Here is a pic of the dude…and his celeb look-a-like…Rafael Nadal!

Bachelor Ben's look-a-like?

…NO MORE DOUBLE DUTY FOR BATES:

– After spending last TV season on 2 NBC shows, Kathy Bates has decided to stick with just one this Fall. Her comedy ‘Harry’s Law’ is back for a 2nd season, but, her role as Jo on ‘The Office” is done. She was on last season as the CEO of Sabre, the company that would own Dundler Mifflin, but, has decided that she is gone just like the “That’s What She Said” quotes of Michael, played by the now departed Steve Carell.

FALL PREVIEW: “THE X-FACTOR” – WED. SEP.21ST (FOX)

– Yep, Simon Cowell is back, and Simon says that this show will be a hit, just as it has been in the U.K. for almost 10  years now. It is another singing competition, but, this time, the auditions are done in front of the judges, and a live audience, so, the pressure to make a good impression has never been bigger. Simon is a judge, and oh yeah, so, is Paula. She is back, and ‘Pussycat Doll’ Nicole Scherzinger is a judge too, along w/ L.A. Reid. Will I watch this one? How could I not. At least check it out, if only for the weird and at times, even sexual chemistry that Simon and Paula have. I said it…you thought it…and don’t ever mention it again. Here is a look:

BRAIN BUSTER:

– What former child actor will turn 30 tomorrow? His claim to fame was being one of the sons of a man who got to share his tool (s) with a certain Baywatch babe. Answer? Next tie.
