Hollywood Babble On & On #440: A Few Quick Bits...

Welcome to the show folks...

Here are just a few quick bits for your edification...


NBC has picked up a pilot for a sitcom called Justice. The twist in the tale is that the show is to be made by Conaco, the production company of recently ousted Tonight Show host Conan O'Brien.

Now this development can be interpreted in three possible ways...

1. The left hand of NBC has no idea what the right hand is doing. It's a believable thought, in fact, it's even more believable that the right hand of NBC has no idea what the right hand is doing.

2. NBC wants to prove that there is no room for resentment in business when there's a chance to make money. Though since it's a show on NBC, the odds of that are slim.

3. It's part of an elaborately evil plan to torment the rebellious Conan by picking up the series, and then casting it into TV oblivion where it will die a slow painful death, unseen, and unloved. And the really fiendish part is that there's no way to prove that they treated it differently from any of NBC's other shows. The dastards!!


Orlando Bloom has quit the Pirates of the Caribbean film series. He will now be available for kid's parties, and will work for food.


NBC has hired a new president of a division called "alternative programming." That title is NBC code for all their regular programming which makes people flip the channel looking for alternatives.


Hustler has announced that it's making a porno parody of James Cameron's film Avatar. Even though the film hasn't been made yet, I'm pretty sure it's going to have a more logical plot and better character development than the original.


MTV is wrapping up negotiations for a second season of The Jersey Shore. After seeing the cast in action, I can honestly say that I now fully support global warming and the melting of the ice caps, as long as that piece of shore sinks under the sea.


  1. Avatar Porn? They already have a swedish Smurf Porn video. With Smurfette removing the blue paint off of Handy's "smurf hammer".

    Jersey Shore, I watched one ep of taht I wish I didn't. I said it on my blog. I dread the possibility of Snooki getting a record deal and designing her own fashion line. Nest I can say at it will not be bland like Lauren Conrad's stuff, but it will make the overpriced hooker low quality hooker wear of heidiwood look high class.

    But maybe MTV can come here to MI and do worse. We have Dearborn, where the Arab community has it's own bastard cousin to the Guido or come to Hamtramck and do a show on "pollacks" hell I audition for it myself.

    Especially if they have a house with city chicken 24/7.

  2. Are you saying that Jackson Pollack the legendary artist lives in your neighbourhood?

    As for Jersey Shore, we had a show like that here in Nova Scotia. It was called The Trailer Park Boys, and it was a hell of a lot more entertaining.

  3. Polacks, I mean polish people.

    Jersey shore, I swear I could literally smell the Brut cologne wafting through my Tv speakers.

    That is a substance that gave me a worse reaction than the CS gas in boot camp.
