“The truth is Kenan [Thompson] does not want to be seen with me in any form of media, or even have my name mentioned around him… There is no bad blood on my side, I’m not declining a reunion, I know the fans love the show and would love to see some type of appearance with us. I just don’t see that ever happening because of how he really feels.”
Weeeeee are never, ever, ever, ever getting back together! Kel Mitchell from “Kenan & Kel” just dashed any hopes we might have had for a “Good Burger” reunion now that Kenan’s all fancy on “Saturday Night Live.” Although, in fairness to Kenan, I suppose anyone would get sick of constantly being asked ,”Where’s Kel?” [Splitsider]
I’m a TV junkie. Once my kid finally falls asleep, you’ll find me splayed out on the couch, flipping through the over 800 channels we apparently subscribe to. And my tastes run rampant: I’m just as happy sitting through an hour of “Alphas” on the Syfy channel as I am watching Barry’s antics on “Storage Wars” or crossing my fingers for a “Charmed” marathon on TNT. I DVR “30 Rock” to watch each week as well as the latest episode of “Top Chef.” Truly, there is very little I won’t watch.
Oh, except Nickelodeon’s new channel for moms, NickMom. You probably won’t find me watching that anytime soon, despite being a mom. On October 1st, NickJr — a channel originally created to provide age-appropriate programming for preschool children — began airing a block of nighttime programming “just for moms.” When I heard the news, I started wondering what I, a self-professed TV fiend and mom, was lacking from my already jam-packed television watching schedule.

Yeah, yeah, Mr. Wizard, Nickelodeon’s resident science guy, taught us all lots about how electricity worked, and gravity and all kinds of other stuff. But seriously? Sometimes he could be kind of jerky –I mean, he spent his life hanging out with 8-year-olds so it’s not like I blame him. This hilarious video shows us clips of some of Mr. Wizard’s bitchy behavior.

Nickelodeon is not usually a channel we’d be caught watching unless there’s a “Ren & Stimpy” marathon on. We may just have to TiVo an episode of the kiddie program “iCarly” in the new year, though: a teaser for the 2012 season is out and First Lady Michelle Obama stops by the iCarly webshow to dance her socks off with Miranda Cosgrove and friends. Too cute! And if I’m not mistaken, that’s “Saturday Night Live”‘s Taran Killam playing a Secret Serviceman. Now pardon me while I find a nine-year-old who can tell me what channel Nickelodeon actually is. [YouTube] Keep reading »
Since you guys were really feeling the news that “Clarissa Explains It All” is coming back to TeenNick, I thought I’d share this. Did you know that Melissa Joan Hart filmed a pilot for a show called “Clarissa Now” in 1995? The concept was that Clarissa moved to New York to start an internship at a newspaper—which sounds oddly like my life. Too bad the show doesn’t look so good. Clarissa in black with a simple bob? No way. And that more sophisticated version of the theme song? No thanks.
Watch the rest of the show after the jump. Keep reading »
Happy unbirthday! (Unless of course it is actually your birthday.) TeenNick has announced that they will be bringing back some of our favorite TV shows involving plaid in a new programming block that will air nightly from midnight to 2 a.m. called “The ’90s Are All That.” The series in the block that has us most excited, naturally, is “Clarissa Explains It All,” the show where Melissa Joan Hart navigated wacky parents, a megalomaniacal brother and a crush on her skater neighbor, Sam, all while looking amazing in brightly colored DIY outfits. But we’re also pumped for “The Adventures of Pete and Pete,” the show about two brothers with the same name which featured the coolest tattoo on an underage character ever—Pete’s dancing mermaid. Oh, and “All That” will be returning too, which means we can scope Nick Cannon way before he met Mariah. In other words, sleepless nights just got a little less dismal. [EW] Keep reading »
Perez Hilton is on the shortlist of awful human beings that I don’t want exposed to my future children. So why, oh why would the kids’ channel Nickelodeon invite the self-proclaimed Queen of All Media to guest star on one of its shows? Perez announced that on Friday, August 27th, at 8 p.m., he’ll have a cameo on “Victorious,” the channel’s highest rated new TV show starring teen actress Victoria Justice. Excellent idea! Let’s expose all the tweens to the most sexist, nastiest gossip blogger out there and make him look “cool.” Keep reading »
Kid stars, most of them make us run screaming past the cute years, but Josh Peck is an above-average boy, er, man. The former “funny fat kid” and cast member of Nickelodeon hits like The Amanda Show and Drake & Josh, has shed the weight and his child-proof image to take on the role of a teenage pot dealer in indie flick The Wackness. He even strips down for a shower sex scene — steamy! While Peck says a bad breakup before the film began shooting helped prepare him for the role, it seems like critics and moviegoers alike are already doing a pretty good job of stroking Josh’s…. ego.

As young Hollywood grows up, the young stars are bound to make mistakes, even if they seem perfect on-screen, down to their braces-less teeth and pimple-less skin. But if a show’s core fan base is between the ages of 9 and 14, it’s generally expected that its stars will do their best not to get into any trouble with the law or come across as too sexy in their personal lives. But stuff happens. Disney dealt with it earlier this year and Vanessa Hudgens seems even more popular than ever after taking responsibility for her nude pictures. But can Nickelodeon can do the same after Jamie Lynn Spears’ pregnancy announcement? The network has already said it respects Jamie Lynn’s decision to take responsibility and keep her baby. Now Nick may air a special on teen sex as soon as next month, which could totally make amends for its most popular star getting knocked up — not to mention throw a lil’ sand in the face of those who think kids Jamie Lynn’s age should only learn about abstinence (a lot of good that did!). Luckily, the fourth and final season of Zoey 101 has already been taped and will air beginning in February, so there will be no need to dress Zoey in a wardrobe of empire waists and muumuus or have her suddenly decide to transfer schools and leave her friends at Pacific Coast Academy behind. Crisis (kinda, sorta) averted. [People] Keep reading »
