2014 Award Nominations: SAG and Golden Globes

Date: 12/11/2014

Awards season is heating up. Yesterday, the Screen Actors Guild announced their nominees and this morning we heard from the Golden Globes. Both are considered early indicators of the Oscars, but for different reasons. SAG is the actors voting for other actors and since the same people vote for the acting awards at the Oscars, they tend to come out the same way. The Golden Globes voters, a mysterio ...

Jen Chaney on Liz Lemon and "30 Rock"

Date: 01/31/2013

Two television programs with almost-identical themes premiered in the fall of 2006.  They were both behind-the-scenes shows about the writers and performers on a late-night topical sketch comedy series. One was an hour-long drama from "The West Wing's" Aaron Sorkin, starring "Friends" alum Matthew Perry.  The other was a half-hour comedy from Tina Fey, then best known as the Weekend Update ancho ...

Kate Gosselin's New Reality is No Reality

Date: 09/14/2011

I hesitated to write about Kate Gosselin because  last time I did, I was immediately thrown in to one of two camps--the haters and the supporters. I'm neither. I do not hate Kate, nor do I support a number of her actions. My concern--her reality about reality TV does not seem to be based in reality. Monday night was the finale of Kate Plus Eight . Her reality TV show is retired and she told E- ...

Kate Gosselin Gets Religion: A New Book from "Kate Plus 8" Star on Family and Faith

Date: 06/17/2010

I blame my mother for introducing me to the Gosselin family . During one of her visits last year, TLC was running a marathon of Jon & Kate Plus 8, and Mom was glued to the screen. I watched several episodes with her and was surprised to find that she knew each child's history and personality. Watching the show for the first time gave me more than a few schadenfreude moments. I saw ...

Does the World Need Really Need 'Kate Plus 8'?

Date: 06/07/2010

Last night marked the return of the Gosselins to TLC, minus Jon, and it felt as if the mother of multiples and her brood had never been away from the small screen. Which, depending on how you feel about the show, is a good thing or a bad thing. I keep coming back to whether it's a necessary thing. The premiere of 'Kate Plus 8' welcomed back viewers with familiar territory, celebrating the sex ...

Jon Gosselin Ordered to Stop All of the Press

Last Friday a judge gave many of us in pop culture land - if not the entire general public - an early Christmas gift by ordering Jon Gosselin to cease and desist from making media appearances of any kind. The judge was ruling in regards to a case filed by TLC, the network behind "Jon and Kate Plus Eight." TLC has claimed that Jon's behavior over the last few months violates his contract wi ...

'Jon & Kate Plus 8' Series Finale

Date: 11/24/2009

If there are two things we learned from the series finale of " Jon and Kate Plus Eight " they are that Kate feels the whole experience has ended too soon, and that Jon just can't help coming off as a total d-bag. (Laudable statements followed immediately by laughable statements? Where is your PR guy?) Kate is absolutely correct that the TLC show has afforded her family of eight children with oppo ...
