How Will 'Conan' Compare to Other 'First Name Only' Shows?

Posted Sep 8th 2010 at 09:15 AM by Mike Ryan

Last Wednesday, Conan O'Brien revealed the title of his new chucklefest on TBS. The title: 'Conan.' Well, that was easy enough. But this got us wondering about other television shows named after the host or lead actor. What's the success rate? To find out, we scurried through the titles of almost every show in the history of American television. We had to set up a few rules: We're talking about...

Pop-Ed: Who's In and Who's Out at 'Saturday Night Live'?

Posted Sep 2nd 2010 at 04:30 PM by Mike Ryan

The past week saw some major shakeups at 'Saturday Night Live.' Will Forte, a cast member since 2002, chose to leave. Taran Killam, Paul Brittain and Venessa Bayer (and maybe Jay Pharoah) are in as -- we assume -- featured players. Yes, it's entirely possible that there are no more changes before the 36th season premiere. But 'SNL' history will tell you that's not likely. 'SNL' certainly do...

The Only Way to Save 'American Idol'? Start Over

Posted Jul 31st 2010 at 11:27 AM by Mike Ryan

Pop-Ed: Well, now we're down to one. One original judge from 'American Idol,' Randy Jackson, remains. With the return of producer Nigel Lythgoe, this isn't really a huge surprise -- considering he's said all along that the only way to save 'Idol,' post Simon Cowell, is to start over with three new judges. And, for the most part, he's right. It is the only way to possibly save 'Idol' -- even tho...

Oliver Stone has never been known to shy away from controversial subjects (so much so that we guarantee that past sentence has been used, oh, about a billion times to open a piece about Stone). This weekend, his new documentary, 'South of the Border,' debuts in theaters. The documentary explores the relationship between the United States and South America -- Stone interviews seven leaders in the r...

Stephen Baldwin Talks Oil Spill, Palin and Obama

Posted Jun 8th 2010 at 03:32 PM by Mike Ryan

Stephen Baldwin is not exactly the first name that comes to mind when the subject of environmentalism or oil spill management is mentioned. Baldwin, who aligns himself as a fairly staunch conservative and a born-again Christian, is directing and producing a documentary on the Gulf oil spill called 'The Will to Drill.' Baldwin, as he mentions, became interested in the project after visiting Louisia...

How Megan Fox Can Get Her Groove Back

Posted May 23rd 2010 at 11:30 AM by Mike Ryan

Megan Fox was unceremoniously dumped by Michael Bay from the next 'Transformers' film (or, if you believe her, she quit -- who should we believe?). Even though she had become a superstar from these films, it probably wasn't the wisest idea to go around badmouthing Bay and the series. As he proved, Michael Bay needs Megan Fox a lot less than Megan Fox needs Michael Bay. Don't believe us? Michae...
