What’s new in Television land

The Screen Actors Guild wants its members to strike… not again! Last year it was the writers and this year the actors. I’m confused…Charlie Sheen is said to make an estimated $825,000 an episode and I would think they make at least 20 episodes a year. How can anyone survive on that salary…I agree, he should strike! Maybe I don’t know enough about the SAG but I always thought they were paid well. All I know is these strikes are hell on us TV watchers. If they do strike the first target is the Oscar’s scheduled for Feb 22nd.

Speaking of the Oscars, why would they choose Hugh Jackman to host them…my gut is saying that’s a mistake. In the past we have seen great comedians host like Jon Stewart, Ellen DeGeneres, Billy Crystal and Whoopi Goldberg…what can Hugh give us? Maybe being called Sexiest Man Alive they figure people will just stare at his beauty and forget how long and drawn out the night really is.

Speaking of the night…last night I was watching one of my favorite sitcoms The Big Bang Theory. I love this show and think it has some good writing…I especially like the actor Jim Parsons playing the character Sheldon. If you have not yet seen this show, please give it a shot. I would hate to see this show cancelled and have one more damn reality show take its place. Just watch this 3 minute clip from the show last night…Sheldon at his very best!


Time for a Change

I am soon to become a “stepmom”…I shutter at that word. I think we need to come up with a new one because fairytales have hexed that phrase. I went onto Merriam Webster Thesaurus today and “no match” came up on my search. I vote for “supporting mom”…like the Oscars, you have your best actor category and best supporting actor.

And one more thing on this subject, I went to the book store looking for guidance on how to be the best “supporting mom” I could be and they only had ONE book to offer. In this day and age you would think they would have an entire annex set up for this category. Just look for me in a year or two, I will be on ELLEN plugging my book!
