Chris Harrison Defends His Rose Counting On “The Bachelor”

“You realize how little I do on this show. So, please, please don’t take away the one thing I do. … I wanted to get rid of that very early on. Eight years ago, I’m like, ‘This is ridiculous.’ It’s not about the math. It’s not saying, ‘Ellen, there’s a coffee cup between us.’ You know that. It’s kind of like, ‘Oh my gosh. One of us is going home.’ It’s really about setting that moment. It’s silly. There’s really no way I can explain that it’s not silly.”

—Chris Harrison semi-defends his job on “The Bachelor” after Ellen DeGeneres points out that he doesn’t really need to step in and say, “Ladies, it’s the final rose,” because, hello, it’s pretty obvious. [People] Keep reading »

Ain’t Nothin’ But A “Glee” Thang, Baby


Heather Morris, Matthew Morrison, Naya Rivera, Cory Monteith, and several other familiar “Glee” faces teamed up for this Funny or Die spoof, “Ain’t Nothin’ But A ‘Glee’ Thang.” It’s reasonably funny, though I think it would have packed a lot more punch if Dr. Dre or Snoop Dogg had made an appearance (hey, Snoop did the “Oh Sookie” video), or if the teens in the intro were sipping on gin and juice. That said, I do like the bit where Sofia Vergara gushes about Jane Lynch, which sure feels like a make good for the time her “Modern Family” co-star said Jane didn’t deserve her Emmy. And I also appreciated the random diss on AT&T in here. True dat. Keep reading »

Katie Holmes’ Elle Cover Boasts Her Now-Cancelled Miniseries

Katie Holmes graces the cover of February’s Elle magazine, alongside the cover line, “On Tom, Suri, and coming back to TV—as Jackie O.” Only, as we reported yesterday, Katie’s miniseries “The Kennedys” has been indefinitely shelved by The History Channel. That’s a little awkward. [PopWrap] Keep reading »

Phaedra Parks Plays A “Character” On “The Real Housewives Of Atlanta”

“What you see on the camera is a character, so I sometimes don’t feel it’s not actually who I am as a person off-camera. But at the end of the day, TV is for entertainment, and I think I come across as very entertaining and that’s what people want to see.”

Phaedra Parks, the true Southern belle on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” actually admits to playing up the entertainment-factor on the hit reality show. [PopEater] Keep reading »

The Boob Tube: Television Highlights For The Week Of January 10, 2010

“The Kennedys” Miniseries Nixed, While A “Wicked” One Is Plotted

It’s a not so mini day for television miniseries news. First, we read that the History Channel will not be airing the eight-part series “The Kennedys,” starring Katie Holmes as Jackie O, that I was all excited for. Why? Well, apparently, it turned out to be historically questionable. “While the film is produced and acted with the highest quality, after viewing the final product in its totality, we have concluded this dramatic interpretation is not a fit for the History brand,” a network spokesperson says. Does that mean we will never get a chance to see Katie in a pillbox hat?

A few clicks of the remote control away, Salma Hayek is busy developing an eight-part miniseries for ABC based on the book Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West. But I’m a little concerned about it. Keep reading »
