It’s been an interesting season for television shows with the writers’ strike and all. Late night comedians’ shows have taken a serious hit, given the fact that they usually film their episode earlier in the day that it airs. But Jay Leno, David Letterman, Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Kimmel all returned to the airwaves yesterday despite the political climate of Hollywood.
And the reviews are mixed. Reportedly Jay Leno wrote his own monologue, which may or may not be in violation of the strike, given that he’s a member of the writers’ guild. "We are not using outside guys. We are following the guild thing ... we can write for ourselves."
It hasn’t happened in twenty years, but Sunday began a massive strike for television and movie writers. And insiders speculate it may be a long one.
Picket lines formed on both the East and West coasts after last-minute negotiations failed to appease the disgruntled entertainment workers. Celebrities like Jay Leno lent his support to the striking workers by delivering doughnuts to the picketers from a motorcycle.
It’s almost time for the kiddies to put on masks and costumes and take to the streets in search of candy. And one celebrity couple is heads and shoulders above the rest in popularity this Halloween season.
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were named most popular costume according to a Captain Morgan/Kelton Research survey of six hundred people in America. It seems we just can’t get enough Mr. and Mrs. Smith!
It’s hard to imagine having hottie Reese Witherspoon as your mother. But reportedly her kids are more interested in Hannah Montana than they are the Legally Blonde actress.
Witherspoon told press that her kids are obsessed with Miley Cyrus’ Disney Channel Show. On Tuesday night, the “Rendition” actress was on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno promoting her film when the conversation turned to the singer/actress.
