17 years is a long span of time, hence an era, for someone to be on TV 5 nights a week. Jay Leno finally decided to step down, 1.5 hour earlier, to prime time. As for the guest on his last late night show, who else is better than his own successor, Conan O’Brien. A lot of people have been debating whether or not this is a smart move – for both NBC and Jay. But as far as I’m concerned, I don’t have any objection about it. FOX and CW have taken their 10 pm prime time slot for News, why can’t NBC use their 10 pm prime time for talk show?
Anyways, Yahoo! TV has writen a page for the most memorable moments of the show. While we wait until September, don’t forget to watch Conan’s first week on Tonight Show 🙂
The beautiful Reese Witherspoon visited The Ellen Show, and Ellen helped her writing the acceptance speech for Nickelodeon Kid’s Choice Award. Using Mad Libs, Ellen “wrote” an acceptance speech 😆 and Reese said that Amazing Race is her favorite show! I embed the clip below, enjoy 🙂
Vodpod videos no longer available.
Update: Some people said that they can’t view the clip. If you can’t see the clip, click here to watch it at ellentv.com
Yesterday I wrote a post about new season of Burn Notice (June 4, 9 pm EST). Today, I’m going to write another good news related to Burn Notice. It’s a sweepstakes, but this time, the grand prize isn’t a Saab, but a 4-days-3night trip for the winner and a guest to Miami! Moreover, the winner will get round trip tickets and accomodations, and Burn Notice Tour! The Sweepstakes will start on 5/21/09 and end on 8/12/09. And, they’ll also giving out weekly prizes, like Burn Notice Tote, Burn Notice DVD, and some other stuff.
All you have to do, is fill in a form weekly, and then pray 😆 Although, I do like the Saab sweepstakes (because there are games involved), but this one is much simpler and more straight forward. Anyways, here’s the link to enter the sweepstakes. To read more about the sweepstakes, click here for the official rules. Good luck 🙂
Another Summer is coming, and so is 3rd season of Burn Notice! For those of you who don’t know, Burn Notice new season will air on different time this season 9/8 pm EST. So set your alarm clock/calendar reminder and tune in to USA Network, June 4, 2009.
Update: Another good news. Despite the rumor that Burn Notice would not be shot in Miami anymore, they’re staying in Miami. The studio where stars and crews have called home was almost put up for sale, and the show was almost evicted from Miami. But no worries, those people in the officies in South Florida know how much exposure Burn Notice brought to their cities. It’s like a free tourism advertisement.
