Though you can watch them together every Monday at 8/7c on CBS, Big Bazinga co-stars Kaley Cuoco and Johnny Galecki are NOT secretly dating, despite some gossip reports that said they were. Horse friend Kaley put rumormongers on blast last night by stating clearly on Instagram that she and Johnny are “just the best of buds.”
Chelsea Handler, despite being mostly horrible, was a frequently named potential replacement for David Letterman. But with Stephen Colbert quickly securing that gig, Handler (and others) will have to shoot for the slot currently occupied by Craig Ferguson. Her interest in The Late Late Show is unknown, but she's certainly winking at our speculation.
On Wednesday night's Jimmy Kimmel Live, Ashton Kutcher told stories about his brother's wedding and, because he's Ashton Kutcher, talked about slapping balls. But he also had an important message for Charlie Sheen, the actor he replaced on the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men.
At a Girls, Inc. charity luncheon yesterday, CBS President Nina Tassler announced that she would be releasing a collection of essays on feminism. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the book is going to be co-authored by journalist Cynthia Littleton. One little problem: Littleton is the editor in chief of Variety, specifically tasked with covering television. Conflict of interest?
What do you do when you're two of the hottest show creators working in television and your banner show is drawing to a close? Panic that you'll never create anything nearly as brilliant and beloved again? Sit back and rest in your jacuzzi filled not with tepid frothy water, but piles of sweet syndication money? Make another hit show about PhD-chasing nerds and their hot neighbor? All great options! Or you could just go the Carter Bays-Craig Thomas route, and just make the same show all over again.
Looks like the Hannah-Marnie frenemies storyline really is art imitating life; Kerry Washington reminds us that being Olivia Pope isn't our aspirational dream, being Kerry Washington is; Connie Britton's hair is ready to play evil instead of good; and Time Warner Cable is even worse than it was before.
After years of stealing all the presents from the children of Whoville (or, well, carriage fees from Time Warner Cable and storylines from The Good Wife), network television Grinch CBS' heart is growing, just in time for the holiday season. The network will be airing two back-to-back episodes of I Love Lucy, remastered in "vintage" color as an appropriately titled "I Love Lucy Christmas Special."
It costs $326,260 to air a 30-second commercial on The Big Bang Theory. Breaking it down further, that is $10,875.33 a second. To put that in perspective, the average American makes $52,100 a year, which is $25.04 an hour, 41 cents a minute, and less than a cent per second. The Big Bang Theory makes almost 2 million times more than you at any given moment.
If Dreamworks got its way, Breaking Bad would have lasted just a little longer; you can now watch Rupert Grint be super charming in Super Clyde, the pilot CBS stupidly passed on; Hollywood is going to bat for ex-Focus Features CEO James Schamus; even award-winning editing can't help Justin Timberlake, and that's saying something.
