Phil Collins is doing a press tour promoting the "Tarzan" musical.Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! No more Disney soundtracks & projects! Please! How about some angry & passionate songs about your divorce? How about a full Genesis reunion with Peter, Steve. Mike & Tony?
Christina Aguilera's new single "Ain't No Other Man" is fantastic, funky fun. It may not be cool to say that, but I speak the truth. I also love the song because Christina is obviously speaking about me. Our love is eternal. I put up with her marriage because I know that our love will conquer all.

In other reality TV news... "Rockstar" returns next month on CBS. This time around the band featured is "Supernova". The newly formed supergroup features Tommy Lee along with former Metallica Bass player Jason Newsted and guitarist Gilby Clark. These three guys are pros and can play hard rock with the best of 'em. Their search for a lead singer will probably be great Television. Brooke Burke returns as host along with guitarist Dave Navarro. It's always fun to see what kind out outrageous outfit Brooke wears to host the program. It's also fun to realize that I wear many of the same outfits. For some reason I never get the reaction that Brook gets when I wear them to work.
CBS broadcast it's Big Brother 7 All Star edition with a special last night. The twenty candidates from the past 6 years were revealed. In addition to my previous picks of sexy Janelle and the evil Dr. Will, I am pushing for Jedi Master Howie and the completely insane Chicken George. George will be in a chicken outfit on the streets of New York campaigning for votes. Yes, no joke. Go to cbs.com to cast your votes.

Why haven't I heard anything about The Pope being portrayed on NBC's lunacy filled/guilty pleasure soap opera "Passions" ? They're obviously trying to capitalize on "The Davinci Code" hype with The Pope, lunatic monks with mystical eyes and powerful chalices.
Jennifer Love Hewitt arrived at "The Break Up" premiere last month with a new hairdo. Others may not like it, but she looks great in my opinion. And really, isn't my opinion all that matters? I am ashamed to admit that I've added Garfield 2 to my netflix list. Anything that involves Hewitt, I must watch. That or Bill Murray doing voice-overs as a overweight cat. With Garfield 2, I get both. How can I possibly lose with this winner of a film? How?
My obsession with "Windfall" continues. Although NBC is promoting it as as the new summer sensation and trumpeting how many millions are watching, they fail to mention a couple of things. Last week's episode came in 19th place down from 13th the week before. CBS' "Without a Trace" aired a repeat in the same time slot and trounced "Windfall" with the repeat coming in 5th for the week. Stay tuned.....

Showtime has posted a photo for the upcoming "Dexter" series featuring Michael C. Hall from "Six Feet Under". Hall is playing a CSI guy who moonlights as a serial killer. Showtime hasn't posted any dates for the program, but says that it should debut before the end of the year. I'm going on record that this show will be top-notch. Hall/Showtime/serial killer. It can't miss. I'll be watching & you should too.
The guys from ASIA have released a statement regarding their reunion. The band plans on following their US tour with dates in the UK, Japan and world wide through next year. VH1 Classic and Sirius radio are sponsors of the tour. They also mention that audiences can expect to hear the band members play hits from other rock bands they have been a part of. Included will be "Roundabout" from Yes, "Video Killed The Radio Star" by the Buggles, "Fanfare For The Common Man" by ELP and "In The Court of The Crimson King" by "King Crimson. This is all fantastic news for longtime ASIA fans that have been hoping for the FULL reunion for some time. I have my tickets and my fingers crossed. There's a reason why these four guys haven't played together since 1983. I sincerely hope that time has healed all the old wounds. ASIA rocks!

On today's Maury show: "I Cheated....Eight men could be our baby's father!!". Some poor shmuck got taken on the Maury show today by his wife who confessed that she cheated with 8 different men. Their child may not be his. So....the guy weeps & they cut to 48 hours later after a paternity test. Maury asks the mother if he is not the father, would she want to find the real father. She replies "No, he'd just be a drug addict." The kid actually turns out to be her husbands. The couple embrace, weep & cry with joy. Hooray! The kid is mine! It's not one of the eight drug addicts that my wife slept with in the course of a month!! Good times, good times.
Dustin Diamond who played Screech on "Saved By The Bell" is in danger of losing his house. To avoid foreclosure he is selling "I saved Screech's House" t-shirts on his website for $15-$20.
O.k.... Douchebag. The show ran on NBC for a hell of a long time and when Dustin got too old for High School, he went on to star in "Saved By The Bell-The College Years". THEN... he starred as an assistant in the high school in "Saved By The Bell-The new Class". All these frickin' episodes run constantly on cable. Your telling me that this idiot can't afford his damn mortgage with the residuals?? AND....There's a million opportunities for d list celebrities like this bozo to make money on reality television....I apologize. It's Monday morning. I'm sleepy and grumpy. Go Dustin! Sell your T-shirts..... Idiot.
