Fred Durst gets CBS Sitcom

Posted by admin on October 14, 2011


Limp Bizkit singer Fred Durst has been accepted for a half-hour sitcom by CBS. The show will focus on a “rock legend looking for balance between his high-profile lifestyle and trying to raise a family.”

The script is being written by Matthew Carlson and Durst reunited with the original lineup of Bizkit earlier this year for a comeback, but it failed.

Ashton Kutcher’s Coworkers: He’s “Not as Funny” as Charlie Sheen!

Posted by admin on September 21, 2011

It was the season premiere that ate its competition: 28.7 million viewers for Two and a Half Men with its new star Ashton Kutcher. But Charlie Sheen, who was axed by his old CBS bosses, did just fine with record-breaking numbers over at Comedy Central, which aired the ex-star’s potty-mouth roast on the same night.

Stunningly, it was Charlie.

Here’s what two of Sheen’s old worker-bees had to say:

“[Ashton] is really a nice guy. Just a nice guy. And he’s OK on set. He gets the job done—that’s what we all want.”

If you’re thinking this a slightly less than glowing review, listen to how another former colleague of Charlie’s (who’s also still employed by the show), broke it down about Demi‘s husband:

“He’s just not as funny as Charlie. Not that we’d want Charlie back if you doubled our salaries.”

CBS Renews Survivor; Jeff Probst Returning for Two More Seasons

Posted by admin on March 10, 2011

The Emmy-winning host has signed a new deal to return for two more seasons of TV’s longest-running hit reality competition series, which CBS just renewed for 2011-12. But is Probst still in talks to replace Regis Philbin? We have some answers, plus the rest of the news from TV world in today’s roundup…MORE: Glee-Dux: Who brought sexy back, and who stopped it dead in its tracks?

Before Piers Morgan replaced Larry King, Probst had been considered one of the candidates for the retired talk-show host’s job, and he is still being name-checked as a possible successor to Philbin, who is leaving Live With Regis and Kelly sometime this year.

CBS has not yet announced Survivor‘s next location (back-to-back seasons are now filmed at the same site), but fans can look forward to seeing Probst in his signature chambray shirt and khakis when the 23rd and 24th seasons air in fall 2011 and spring 2012.

Five Reasons Why Charlie Sheen Is So Fired

Posted by admin on March 8, 2011

1. Perfection? Pshaw! Sheen’s claim that he was still killing it at work no matter how little he rehearsed or how much he partied is absolute BS, according to Warner Bros. He had “difficulty remembering his lines and hitting his marks

2. We Prefer Our Stars Alive, Not Shooting:

3. Chatty Charlie: Sheen’s series of radio call-ins before the show was suspended turned up the heat, and his postsuspension interviews decimated the thin ice he was already on.

4. Section 12: While Sheen’s team, headed up by Singer, says it plans to go after CBS and Warner Bros. for breach of contract, they say they had every legal right to axe the star

5. Section 13: Sheen’s own admission that he’d only go back to work if the “turds” currently in charge were replaced and some major changes were made also violates Section 13b of his contract’s Standard Terms and Conditions, according to Warner Bros.

CBS reporter arrested on drug charges

CBS reporter arrested on drug charges

A veteran CBS Radio News correspondent was arrested early Saturday on drug charges after police searched his Northwest Washington home, and found marijuana plants growing in his yard, authorities said.

Police arrested Howard Arenstein and his wife at their home in the 3500 block of T Street and charged them with possession with intent to distribute marijuana. Arenstein is married to Orly Azoulay, Washington correspondent for Yedioth Ahronoth, the largest and most widely read newspaper in Israel.

Police executed a search warrant at the home Saturday after a tip from an area resident, and found 11 fully mature marijuana plants and six two-ounce bags of marijuana inside the home. Each plant is considered by authorities to equal one pound of marijuana. Early Saturday evening, the porch light of the home was on and there was a small pile of mail on the doorstep, but no one answered the door.

According to the CBS news site, Arenstein has supervised coverage and reported on major Washington stories such as the disputed 2000 presidential election, the September 11th hijackings, the war in Iraq and the DC area sniper shootings
