THE BUZZ

…EMMY AWARDS:

– So, no real drama last night as ‘Mad Men’ made some history by winning the best drama for a 4th year in a row. They tie ‘Hill Street Blues’, ‘L.A. Law’ & ‘The West Wing’ as the only shows to have won the award 4 times. Oddly enough, the HBO hit was up for 19 awards, but, only won twice! ‘Modern Family’ was the best comedy for the 2nd straight year, to the surprise of no one. Jane Lynch from ‘Glee’ was the host, and did an admirable job. This little segment featuring some novelty songs from ‘Saturday Night Live’ was the highlight.

…LAST NIGHT – BATTLE OF THE BLADES

– The CBC reality show back for a 3rd season featuring former NHL’ers teaming up with figure skaters. Last night, it was the boot camp, and the pairings for the upcoming season were revealed. Sadly, former tough guy Wade Belak passed away leading up to the start of the show, and it ended last night w/ a look at his short time on the show.

…TUBE TONIGHT –

CBS – TWO AND A HALF MEN:

– It’s the one everyone is waiting for…just to find out how Charlie Harper (Charlie Sheen) is killed off. We also meet his replacement, an Internet millionaire who buys the home that Alan & Jake still live in. Walden Schmidt (Ashton Kutcher) is newly single…and broken hearted, and maybe suicidal? Wow…this really does sound like a funny show, doesn’t it?

HAWAII FIVE-O:

– One of the best finales last season was this one, featuring the demise of the 5-0. What will become of McGarrett, Danno and the gang? We will find out, along with a little help from a new character played by Terry O’ Quinn, formerly Locke of ‘Lost’. I am looking forward to this show’s return! Here is some Locke footage from ‘Lost’:

2 BROKE GIRLS (SERIES PREMIERE) & HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER (SEASON PREMIERE):

– More comedy on CBS tonight w/ the premiere of ‘2 Broke Girls’, which may survive thanks in part to being along for the ride w/ ‘2 and a Half Men’ and a new season of ‘How I Met Your Mother’.

NBC – THE SING OFF & THE PLAYBOY CLUB:

– NBC’s Monday has the 2 hour premiere of ‘The Sing Off’, another musical reality show, this one being a real life version of ‘Glee’. ‘The Playboy Club’ is yet another show trying to bank on the success of ‘Mad Men’ by going back to the glory days of the ’60’s. I will let you know what I think of the ‘Club’. I will check out it’s debut…for obvious reasons.

FOX – HELL’S KITCHEN:

– Another Summer show comes to an end, after dragging things out into the Fall season. There are 4 chefs remaining…and the winner is revealed tonight.

ABC – CASTLE & DANCING WITH THE STARS:

– It is the premiere of ‘Castle’, which has turned out to be a surprise hit for ABC, and it looks like it has the staying power to be on the air for a few more years at least. The grand-daddy of Fall shows is of course ‘Dancing’. New celebs with the most anticipation being for Chaz Bono, son of Cher who is a transgendered male. Nancy Grace & David Arquette are others gaining a lot of the spotlight leading into tonight when the 13 celebs hit the floor.

TV BIRTHDAYS & ANNIVERSARIES:

– James Lipton (Host of ‘Inside the Actors Studio’) 85. (see clip)

– Adam West (TV’s original ‘Batman’) 81.

– Randolph Mantooth (‘Emergency’) 66.

– Jimmy Fallon (‘SNL’ alum & host of his own late night show) 37.

1970: ‘The Mary Tyler Moore Show’ debuts.

1994: NBC’s hit ‘ER’ premieres.

FALL PREVIEW: “TERRA NOVA” – MON. SEP.26TH (FOX)

– The future means…going back to the past. It’s the year 2149, and Earth is crumbling. So, how do you fix it? By going back in time..way back, to  pre-historic time. That might be man’s only way to survive his own extinction. Heading back into the world of dinosaurs will present it’s problems. Steven Spielberg is involved, which means, I have to check it out! It should be a big hit out of the gate, but, we will soon see just how good…or bad it really is. The cast is virtually unknown, but, it’s the effects that should make this show a hit. Take a peek:

BOOB TUBE BABE OF DAY (this does beat the BRAIN BUSTER by a mile):

– Tanith Belbin, of CBC’s ‘Battle of the Blades’. She is one of the new skaters on the show this year…and she is…a Yank!
