Bing: Watch clips and episodes of 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show'
DeGeneres will talk music with Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, but there will also be some rocking performances. Folks like Miley Cyrus will stop by throughout February to perform their tracks from the Bob Dylan cover album, "Chimes of Freedom," a 4-CD collection that celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Amnesty International. It's not clear who else from the album will make an appearance, but possibilities include Lenny Kravitz, Elvis Costello, Natasha Bedingfield, My Chemical Romance, Maroon 5 and many more.
Other big celebs scheduled include Denzel Washington, Rachel McAdams, Julie Bowen and Channing Tatum.
It bares mention that Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony actually sat down together, already, and that appearance left those in attendance more than a little frustrated. The former couple was on-hand at the TCA press tour earlier this month to talk up their upcoming show, "Q'VIVA! The Chosen," the same show they'll be promoting on "Ellen." In order to avoid the uncomfortable questions, however, they tried to avoid taking any questions at all. Hopefully, DeGeneres will fare better.
Here are a few key dates in February:
Thursday, Feb. 2: First Lady Michelle Obama will talk about her "Let’s Move" campaign, and
actor Daniel Radcliffe stops by.
Friday, Feb. 3, "The Voice" judges, Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton will make an appearance.
Monday, Feb. 13: The exclusive joint interview with Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. They will be joined by host/creator, choreographer Jamie King of their new talent series, "Q'VIVA! The Chosen."
Tuesday, Feb. 21: Taylor Swift and Zac Efron will make their only appearance together to talk about their animated film "Dr. Seuss' The Lorax."
"The Ellen DeGeneres" show airs weekdays in syndication.
'Runway' guide offers a revelation on 'The Revolution'
ABC's "The Revolution" tackled sex Tuesday, Jan. 24, and viewers got a reveal they didn't see coming. "Project Runway" toughie Tim Gunn dropped the bombshell that he hasn't had sex in 29 years and from the carefully composed looks in the clip above, his co-hosts may have been as surprised by the reveal as their audience.
Bing: More about "The Revolution"
Gunn insisted feeling sexy is important and empowering during his "jump-start the sexy in your life" Timtervention, but it sounds like he may need his own jump-start.
The big reveal came after Dr. Tiffanie said 15 to 20 percent of people are in "low-sex to no-sex relationships," and Harley Pasternack exclaimed, "That's sad!"
Gunn, who didn't agree with Pasternak, was moved to get honest.
"I haven't had sex in 29 years," Gunn said. "Do I feel like less of a person for it? No! Not even remotely … I'm a perfectly happy, fulfilled individual, and I have feelings. I mean, it's not as though I'm some barren forest."
Gunn got a bit choked up before explaining why he's not getting any.
"It's largely psychological," Gunn admitted. "I was in a very intense relationship for a long time and my partner ended it, saying that, quite frankly, he was impatient with my sexual performance. The origin of it is that was at the cusp of AIDS, and I think a lot of people simply retreated, because they were concerned about their heath. I certainly was. I'm happy to be healthy and alive, quite frankly. "
At 58-years-old, however, Gunn isn't suggesting he made the right call or that his sex life is over, forever. "I don't want to imply to anyone that I have a mandate that says, 'No sex.' I don't. I don't know what's around the corner."
From the look on Dr. Tiffanie's face, Gun might just be getting a an off screen Tif-tervention. He may be happy, but he's got one serious issue to tackle.
"The Revolution" airs weekdays on ABC.
Producers' kibosh on 'Abbey'-inspired knockoffs means no 'Lady Mary' pearls for fans
Rivers calls Handler a 'drunk whore!'
On Tuesday, Rivers, 78, eviscerated the host of E!'s "Chelsea Lately" on Stern's SiriusXM radio show.
"Number one, the girl made it on her back (expletive) the president, we all know that, of the network," Rivers said of Handler's previous relationship with Ted Harbert, former CEO of E!'s parent company. "Number two, she's fine. She's ordinary. She's not a genius."
This was in retaliation for Handler's Stern appearance on Monday, during which the late-night host said: "What the (expletive) do I care about Joan Rivers? I don't think about her ever."
Handler, 36, went on to relate an incident at a recent E! event, during which Handler was presented with Conan O'Brien's old stage. (Rivers also has a show on the cable network.)
"Joan Rivers gets up and she's like, 'I'd like to thank Chelsea Handler for giving me a career in comedy (mock laughing), and congratulations on your stage, Chelsea, because I don't even have a dressing room,'" Handler recalled. "And I'm like, '(Expletive) off!'"
Rivers concluded her retort with: "Whatever she is, she's a drunk… I don't think she's particularly funny. But don't you come after me, you whore!"
Here's the gruesome footage:
Some perspective: Rivers has publicly stated for years that she doesn't think Handler is funny. And Handler has responded for years by giving Rivers the silent treatment and being otherwise rude to her at E! events. During one, according to this livejournal.com report, Handler was so out of line, Rivers' "Fashion Police" co-star, Kelly Osbourne, kicked a table in disgust -- hard enough to hurt her leg.
As hard as it is to pick one of these brilliant funny ladies over the other -- and as childish as both are behaving -- the advantage must go to Rivers.
Handler is one of the funniest talk show hosts on TV. Yet she wouldn't be where she is without Rivers' trailblazing. And the Rivers insult she cited was more self-deprecatory than insulting.
But even if it weren't, when insult comics insult you, the appropriate response is to feel honored, not take it personally. Insulting is what they do.
Shouldn't someone as insulting as Handler realize this?
Roseanne, Fallon, 'Office' team among those eyeing new series
- Roseanne is back where she belongs. The groundbreaking comedian and former star of her own eponymous sitcom will once again play a slightly exaggerated version of herself as the manager of a trailer park in "Downwardly Mobile."
- Fallon is backing "Office"/"SNL" pal Charles Grandy as executive producer on an as-yet-untitled comedy about men in their 30s adjusting to fatherhood (not that we've seen this before).
- "Go On" is being overseen by "Friends" producer Scott Silveri and will focus on a smooth-talking sportscaster who gets hit with personal loss and finds comfort in his therapy group (hilarious, no?).
- "Daddy's Girl" doesn't have stars attached yet, but was written by another "Friends" alum, Dana Klein, and mines the comic gold in a woman who returns from abroad to discover her father is dating an old high school rival (what are the odds?).
- Then we have an untitled script from "Community" writer Hilary Winston about a woman scorned by her fiance and plotting revenge (hint: It's best served cold).
- "Weeds" producer Stephen Falk is getting in the big-network mix with "Next Caller Please," about a manly satellite-radio DJ (is there such a thing?) going mano y woman with his feminist co-host.
- The dubious team of men who brought you "The Hangover Part II" and "The Sitter" are breeding "Animal Kingdom," their new laugher about a veterinarian who can't stand his patients' owners.
- "Office" honcho Greg Daniels is adapting the self-explanatory, low-concept UK comedy "Friday Night Dinner" and rumored to be looking at "Anchorman" alum David Koechner in the lead role.
- Lastly, on the dramatic side of things, venerable procedural auteur Dick Wolf is gearing up the engines for "Chicago Fire," while Jason Ritter is a probable lead in "Friday Night Lights"/"Parenthood" producer Greg Katims' impending hospital saga "County."
As the girls get closer to unraveling the mystery of A, their own relationships start falling apart
Last week on “Pretty Little Liars,” the Lucas plotline the girls thought was related to A turned out to be a completely separate fiasco.
So this week, they were as clueless as they’d always been – except for a bit of video footage that Hanna’s boyfriend Caleb managed to pry off of that found phone.
And that send the girls into a tailspin all over again – because the video showed a field trip by “NAT club” members Garrett, Jenna and Ian. Ian had recorded them hunting through Ali’s bedroom for videos that Ali had taken, videos that they were desperate to get their hands on.
So this proved that the NAT club suspects were all in Rosewood the night Ali was murdered – and in her bedroom!
Back in Ali’s room, the girls riffled to through the box – and found a bunch of familiar-sounding notes tucked into a doll’s head. They recalled the Halloween before Ali died, when someone trashed her porch and left a similarly nasty note, signed by “A,” even then.
Of course, while all these new developments were going down, the girls had plenty of drama of their own.
- Aria wanted to know what was up with Ezra, so she asked her old buddy-old pal Holden – whom the girls had officially dubbed her beard – to hang out again. “He’s gay,” Hanna insisted. “Has he ever tried to kiss you?” Nope. But Aria was focused on Ezra. She left him a voicemail asking her to meet her. If he did, they still had a chance. If he didn’t, she’d know they were over. But Aria’s mom Ella insisted on driving her to their date. Later, Holden asked her: “Does it bother you, lying to her?” She talked around the question, then told him that her friends thought he was gay. “I’m not gay,” he said. “I’m late.” Then he ran off. And she waited, alone, at the square for Ezra. The hot professor, meanwhile, was still at his office, Aria’s voicemail unheard, talking to a student about love and life – and how sometimes thing just don’t work out. “Be bold, and mighty forces will come to your aid,” the student told him. But Aria sat waiting, alone. And when he finally showed up, they kissed, stopping traffic, in the pouring rain. “We’re crazy, you know that, right?” Ezra said.
- Mona called Hanna out on being a sucky friend, then told Noel – her ex – to that he could keep his crappy jewelry. She stormed off to cry in the bathroom, where Hanna consoled her, and they made plans for a girls’ night. But it turned out that they weren’t alone – Jenna was listening in on them.
- Hanna was stressed, meanwhile, that Caleb was now involved. Really involved. Caleb was editing more video from the phone when he spied the very sinister Officer Garrett sitting there right in front of him. He confronted Hanna about the videos. “I can protect you,” he said, “but you’ve got to tell me.” She told him he needed to stop working on the videos. “They’re dangerous.” He told her saw Officer Garrett, so Hanna took the memory card with the video and shredded it. Later, she asked her mother about keeping secrets. But wouldn’t confess any of her own. Instead, she went out with Mona – and they saw Jenna and Noel out together.
- Toby thought he and Spencer were sort of rekindled, given all the making out last week, but Spencer couldn’t drag him further into this mess. But it was too late. Hard at work, Toby climbed onto scaffolding at Spencer’s house, which he was fixing up – but someone had purposely loosened a screw, and the rig collapsed, sending Toby crashing some twenty feet to the ground. At the hospital, Dr. Wren happened to be Toby’s physician. And Toby was curious about the tension between them. But Spencer was more worried about Spencer – especially when she got the text from A that Toby wouldn’t be so lucky next time.
- Later, Jenna showed up at Toby’s hospital room and warned him against Spencer again. “She’s haunted, Toby. And we’re family, whether you like it or not.” Later, as Jenna was leaving, she ran into Emily. She told her that the girls needed to leave Toby alone. Spencer overheard. “Jenna’s right,” she said. “I’m putting Toby in danger.” She asked Emily to do something for her. So Emily told Toby that Spencer was seeing someone else. And Toby presumed it was Wren. And asked the hot doc about it. “I kissed her,” Wren said. “I was under the impression that you two were over.
- When Aria’s mom came to pick her up, Holden was MIA. Aria was at a loss to explain it, but then he showed up bearing dessert and saved her again.
- Emily and Spencer asked Caleb for the flash drive, so he told them Hanna vaporized it. But he kept a copy and would continue to work on them – as long as they kept it a secret from Hanna. And as long as they told him what was really going on. The next morning, Aria joined them to watch the video. Ian was trying to expose them all – but Garrett and Jenna wouldn’t let him.
- They heard a door slam, so they went out to find Toby’s truck – and a note for Spencer. “He’s gone,” she told them.
- And then we got the final shot: “A” slashing pictures of the girls kissing their significant others – and burning the sliced photos of Ezra and Toby. But not Hanna and Caleb. Weird.
