Why does "TMZ Live" let them talk!?!?!?!
See it. On the slate, it clearly says the show is called "These Friends of Mine"! Yet, even this episode's opening credits, call the show "Ellen". They changed it the second season, but since they kept the opening credits sequence that season, they just changed the title in the sequence, and when it went into reruns, they just kept it. I have no idea why they don't bring this up; I can't even find an original opening sequence of the show on Youtube, where it says the title is "These Friends of Mine", but go look on the Neilsen ratings for '93-'94 and one of the Top Five shows, is "These Friends of Mine". And that's another, this was a Top Five show, and CHANGED THE TITLE?! Can you imagine that ever happening today? Granted,"These Friends of Mine" is a weird title and in hindsight, kinda makes sense that someone like Ellen DeGenerous, before she came out, would try to push the focus on, the people around her and not herself, that's odd. Yes, "Ellen" is a far better title, but it's still, so strange and it's been completely erased from most everyone's memory, except mine. I distinctly remember being confused that that show I liked wasn't on the air anymore, until I saw it under the title "Ellen" the next year. Odd.
Hey a foreign movie on THISTV, oh, "Osama" and it's a good one too. They don't put enough of those on.
NBC fired Donald Trump. Well, about time and, du-uh! They're keeping "The Celebrity Apprentice", fine let me know when they cancel "The Biggest Loser", and "Undateable", and about 6 other shitty reality shows. Oh, nevermind, just let me know when they bring back "Seinfeld".
BTW, in terms of beauty pageants, I was going to write about them at one point, but John Oliver did that piece on Miss America and pretty much said everything I was going to, and he did is better than I would've. I genuinely have no idea why beauty pageants still around.
What's this "Secretos"? This must be like the Mexican "Cheaters" or something, pretty strangely awesome.
I still can't stand Sheryl Underwood on "The Talk" I miss Leah Remini, she was funny and witty, Underwood forces every joke, she doesn't really participate in the actual talking. Granted Julie Chan's annoying, but I can live with her, but Underwood's just annoying. She's never funny and when you got Aisha Tyler up there, who really is funny as hell, it really feels forced.
Okay, I watched 15 minutes of "Celebrity Wife Swap", but it was just to see what was in Margaret Cho's dungeon. She is so awesome!
I guess you realized that most of these complaints and thoughts have been about television, well, it's all I really got right now, although I am watching movies, but I'm trying to catch up on television for the Emmys. Except none of the Emmy shows are on in reruns anymore!!!! WTF? How many "American Ninja Warriors" can you have? Damn networks, going all to hell. Cable should be fucking free to all! That should be the next civil right we challenge the Supreme Court over.
