So what did you do yesterday? I hung with this guy…and it wasn’t bad…not bad at all. My flight just got in and I have to head to work, but I’ll be back later with the full recap of my day on the set of Veronica Mars, as well as all the great pics.

Sidenote: As luck would have it, the battery on my camera died seconds before we got to meet Jason Dohring. So a special thanks to my new BFF Dan (DuckyxDale) for sending along these pics of Jason.

Comments Off on Supersize My Office!

Give Me My Remote is teaming up with Northern Attack to launch a campaign for supersizing the upcoming season finale of The Office. For those of you who haven’t heard the news, Greg Daniels mentioned in a recent interview that he’d like to air an extended season finale. I think this a great idea, and I’m guessing most of you do, too. That’s why we’ve set up an online petition to further the cause. Head on over and show your support. And please, spread the word. We’re looking to round up as many quality signatures as possible.

Tell NBC you would like your Office supersized please. Click here.

Don’t Spoil Grey’s Anatomy For Me

February 26, 2006 by  
Filed under Grey's Anatomy, TV News

How do you people on the West Coast do it? I’ve got another hour and 45 minutes before Grey’s Anatomy starts for me here in California. I am so tempted to check the boards and find out what happened with MerGe. Did She-Shepherd* tell He-Shepherd* anything more about her torrid affair with McSteamy? Did Alex and Izzie have dirty eyes again? Oh the suspense is killing me. But I won’t do it. I won’t be spoiled. But I hope you guys are around a little later to chat with me about it in the forums.

P.S. I’m watching Dancing with the Stars. But yeah, I read I spoiler & already know who won. I just couldn’t resist.

*All credit to TvGasm for the new nicknames…I thought they were pretty damn clever.

Comments Off on California is Soooooo Nice..seriously…seriously!!

I’m a little busy soaking up the sun in San Diego, so sorry that I haven’t been on the game the past two days. Once I get home from Veronica Mars-land, I’ll be sure to up and posting more frequently. For now, here’s just a few stories from the TV world.

RIP Don Knotts. The star of Three’s Company, The Incredible Mr. Limpet and The Andy Griffith Show died of lung cancer. He was 81. (Boston Herald)

Ricky Gervais loves The Office, and says it may be his favorite sitcom. Good, now maybe the UK version-snobs will watch at least one episode before ripping it to shreds. (Zap2It)

Pics of Britney Spears on the set of Will & Grace have been released. It’s amazing how good Britney can look with a little makeup, a hair brush and the right clothes. Why doesn’t she put in the effort everyday? (Pink is the New Blog)

Tonight is the final episode for Dancing with the Stars. Will it be Stacey Keibler or Drew Lachey taking the top prize? Sorry Jerry. Special guest Mary J. Blige will perform. Gooooo TEAM DREW!!!

Give Me My Remote and Northern Attack are working on a joint project. Make sure you come back soon to hear all the details and to learn how you can help.

Bad guys watch out!! Our favorite international secret spies are back on the job. According to TV Diva Kristin Veitch of E! Online, Alias will return in all its glory on April 18th. It seems that we will see a 2-hour midseason premiere, 4 episodes and then a final 2-hour series finale in May.

If that isn’t enough, rumor has it that the show will be airing its final episodes on Wednesdays at 8pm. A perfect lead in to JJ Abrams other hit…a show you may or may not heave heard of, called Lost.

In her weekly column, KV also dishes about the return of Lena Olin, Bradley “McHottie” Cooper, and one of the sexiest men alive – Michael Vartan. Check it out here.

Thanks to ABC for finally getting thei sh*t together and getting the show back on the air. And of course thanks to Kristin for always having the scoop.

Comments Off on I’m Off to the Left Coast

Kids, well I’m off. Heading out to good old San Diego, California for my much anticipated day on the set of Veronica Mars. I’ll be taking detailed notes and a ton of pics. Fingers crossed that we get to meet the stars. Since we are scheduled to watch 3 hours of production, I thinking it’s quite possible. I have all your questions for Rob Thomas and I’llbe sure to ask as many as I can. I’ll miss you all!!!

Best TV Moment of the Week: Project Runway Designed Hammered

February 25, 2006 by  
Filed under TV News

Remember earlier in the week when I begged you to watch the Project Runway Reunion Show? Did you? If so, then you’ve already seen this clip of ex-Runway designer Guadalupe Vidal absolutely blasted trying to answer a question from the hosts Tim Gunn and Heidi Klum. I’m not sure where she got her crack, but she should ask for a refund because she didn’t get the good quality stuff.

Check it out…

Thanks to Random Acts of Television for the link. And thank to YouTube for being the single greatest invention…ok, overstatement for sure, but I do love YouTube.com

The Beek May Be Coming Back to TV

February 24, 2006 by  
Filed under TV News

First we get word that Pacey may be coming back to TV, and now the news that Dawson could be coming back too. Now if we could only find out what Joey Potter & Jen Lindley were up to these days. Hmmmm…those two just disappeared off the map.

Although he’s my least favorite Creeker, he’s still a Creeker and therefore I’m happy to report that James “the Beek” Van der Beek has joined the cast of a new CBS pilot called Sex, Love, Money & Politics. The show, which revolves around Capitol Hill staffers in their mid-30’s also features Jane Krakowski and Jay Harrington.

The Beek starred in another pilot last year called Three, but it never made it out of the ground.

Best of luck to ya Dawson!!

Hugh Laurie is Modest & Funny

February 24, 2006 by  
Filed under TV News

Hugh Laurie, who plays Greg House, on..well House, is sexy as all hell. Maybe not in your oh-so-obvious George Clooney way, but it’s still there. But Hugh may be the last one to see it. He says that even his wife doesn’t find him sexy, and it’s a miracle that they have children. C’mon, I find that VERY hard to believe.

Hugh Laurie insists that he is “flabbergasted” by mentions of him as a sex symbol. And told Britain’s Now Magazine that he hates baring his body on the show.

“I recently did a shower scene and it was one of the most traumatic events of my life. It struck me as a misuse of resources because the producers have gone to the trouble of hiring young, beautiful people with smooth skin and high bottoms and they go and pick the old guy with buns of yogurt. It staggers my wife.”

Laurie confessed he can’t believe he won the role in the first place. He joked: “I consider casting me to be a colossal mistake. I think I have a huge charisma deficit compared to all these American actors who look fabulous and sexy.”

Three words for you Hugh: Dis-a-gree!! Own your sexiness you minx.

Dancing with the Stars – Gooooo Drew!!!

Comments Off on Dancing with the Stars – Gooooo Drew!!!

Yeeeeeeeesssss! My boy Drew Lachey did exactly what he needed to do tonight – dance his ass off. Each of the finalist performed two dances tonight. The first was another performance of their favorite dance to date, and the second was the freestyle.

Both Stacey and Drew received perfect scores for their first dance, but it was the freestyle where Drew brought down the house. While Stacey opted for a lackluster 70’s jive to Stayin’ Alive, Drew and his partner Cheryl kicked a little ass with their performance of Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy.

Drew’s dance was hot, and so much fun to watch. He better take it all next week.

People call 1-800-VOTE-4-05 or go to ABC.com right now and VOTE for TEAM DREW!!!

And then head over to the GMMR Online Store to get your Team Drew shirt in time for the season finale.

Goodnight & Goodbye to Four American Idol Hopefuls

Comments Off on Goodnight & Goodbye to Four American Idol Hopefuls

The following contains spoilers about tonight’s American Idol. If you’ve TiVo’d it, then close your eyes and run away from your computer.

We started the night with 24 and now we are down to 20 finalists for your next American Idol. Tonight two of the ladies were eliminated as were two men.

For the ladies we had to say goodbye to Becky O’Donohue (who had to be THE most searched woman on the web today…seriously, you should see my site traffic) and Stevie Scott.

For the guys, it was the last night for Patrick Hall (I was surprised by this one) and Bobby Bennett.

You Must See the Project Runway Reunion

Comments Off on You Must See the Project Runway Reunion

If you’ve never seen one single episode of Project Runway, I still beg that you check out the Project Runway Reunion show. I’m sure Bravo is going to rerun it at least 15 times during the week. This show was pure gold.

All the designers from this season get together and have to watch themselves talk sh*t about the other designers, and then respond. Oh, nothing like being called out in front of others….classic.

But there were two specific gems to the evening. One was when one of the designers started babbling in a drunken stupor. I mean the girl couldn’t even put a sentence together. I had to watch the scene at least 6 times. Hysterical!!

And the other classic moment came from former contestant Daniel Franco. After host Heidi Klum complimented one of Daniel’s designs, Daniel looked right at her and said “I love you, Heidi”, and she just looked back at him like “oh sweet jesus”!! That was an awesome moment.

So like I said, even if you’re not a fan, make sure you check it out. You won’t be disappointed.
