Today's 5 Biggest TV Dummies
(June 5, 2012)
-- I'm not sure if this will be a daily feature, but I have no
doubt that it could be if I have the time and inclination. Every
day, I scan the newswires for interesting stories in the TV
industry and I am constantly amazed at how dumb certain people
And these are not dumb people. They just do dumb things from
time to time. I guess it's part and parcel of working in the TV
industry. The pressure to succeed -- or simply do something,
anything -- is so great that actors, network executives,
writers, producers and other Hollywood hoi polloi tend to get a
little funny in the head.
Big mistakes. Big mistakes that look real dumb.
So, here goes. Here's today's 5 Dumbest TV Moments for Tuesday:
1. NBC Hires Jerry
O'Connell as Herman Munster
Jerry O'Connell is many things, chiefly the husband to the
gorgeous model/actress Rebecca
Romijn. (That's no small
achievement.) But a funny man he is not. Really, NBC, did you
see The Defenders? O'Connell's briefcase got more laughs.
But NBC in its infinite wisdom (actually it has demonstrated
almost no wisdom since the mid-1990s) has hired old Jer to be
the star in its remake of The Munsters. That decision
undoubtedly will go down as scarier than the show.
2. Lindsay Lohan Has Wardrobe Malfunction Making a Movie!
This woman is a walking wardrobe malfunction. Her breasts pop
out more than the nursing Mom on the Time Magazine cover a few
weeks ago. And now TMZ.com has gotten access to a picture of Lil
Lo playing Liz Taylor in an upcoming Lifetime movie. And Lil Lo
and behold, Lohan's breasts are popping out during the scene
itself. Can't this woman get a bra that fits?!
3. Emily Maynard Gets a Geography Lesson
Emily Maynard, this season's Bachelorette (ABC's female answer
to ABC's The Bachelor) blogged today that she and her couple
dozen suitors will shoot some scenes in Bermuda. Coming from
North Carolina, this apparently got Emily really excited.
off to Bermuda, and I couldn't be more excited! I had no idea it
was so close to North Carolina and can't believe how easy it was
to get there," Emily wrote.
Em, sweetie, what, are you three?
Have you never looked at a globe? No, I guess they don't have
them in hot tubs.
4. Jason Alexander Calls
Cricket a 'Gay Game'
This is a guy who worked with Michael Richards. And he still
didn't realize that calling anything a racist or homophobic name
is a guarantee that people will pick up pitchforks and storm
your castle? So dumb -- and so George.
5. Hugh Hefner Reunites With
His Runaway Bride
The 86-year-old Playboy founder is once again dating Crystal
Harris, 26, who previously was seen fleeing the scene of her
wedding to, yes, the aforementioned 86-year-old Playboy founder.
I guess being 86 and having to answer to no one entitles you to
do dumb things, really dumb things. And this is really dumb,
Hef. Dumber than when you asked Linda Lovelace to perform a
certain act of charity upon your manhood. It was Linda Lovelace, Hef. Did
you think it was her first time? That she might not leave a few
friends behind. Oh, dear. Good luck, Hughie, you're going to
