Indeed, Goodman was saddled with such grimly unfunny material, I half wondered if the Grinch had arrived at Studio 8H, loaded all of this week’s punch lines into a sack and took ‘em back up the chimney. Or maybe he just hurled ‘em into a blazing fire.

Aw, I miss Bunheads. And not just for the hot marine biologist bartender.
In talking with Vulture, Scandal-creator Shonda Rhimes discusses last week’s shocking opening scene and how it reflects the mindset of the writers’ room. “I feel like we’re fighting against the very traditional idea that we see these people and we identify with them and therefore they must be good. On our show, we see these people and we identify with them — that doesn’t mean they’re good by any stretch of the imagination. Sometimes you love Cyrus, and he is a monster. »

There's a music video making a splash on the Internet, but unlike most music videos that go viral, its song of choice isn't some current pop anthem. Instead, the latest offering from interactive video company Interlude creates a network of 16 channels all lip-syncing along to Bob Dylan's 'Like A Rolling Stone'. I could go into explicit detail about the intricacies of the fascinating video, which spans the length of the song and never misses a beat as viewers flip randomly between its channels, but you should really just watch it for yourself. Keep in mind that everything was filmed specifically for this video, which means Interlude secured Marc Maron, Danny Brown, Drew Carey, the cast of Pawn Stars, and several other notable people as guest stars. Interlude was hired by Columbia Legacy/Recordings to create the videos, which has been released to coincide with a new 47-cd Bob Dylan box set. »

Bob Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone” has been hailed as one of the greatest songs in the history of rock music, but it was recorded in an era when music videos were some futuristic concept no one had even heard of. As such, Dylan never shot a spiffy clip of himself and his band performing the song for MTV (which wouldn’t exist for nearly another two decades anyway) – until now. Dylan’s classic song is the centerpiece of a new interactive video from the folks at Interlude – a video that the creators claim will never be experienced in the same way twice. How can that be? Well, it’s completely interactive. The clip features Dylan’s song being performed by a bevy of television personalities -- including Drew Carey and the guys...

“Like a Rolling Stone” is maybe the most well-known song by obscure folk artist Bob Dylan. For those unfamiliar, some historians call him the “Taylor Swift of the early 60s.” Well, Interlude has made the coolest possible video for the song, in honor of his The Complete Album Collection, Vol. 1. Directed by popular YouTuber Vania Heymanm, the interactive video is meant to simulate flipping through TV channels. There are sixteen unique channels, each with different people lip-syncing the song. Marc Maron, Drew Carey, Danny Brown are among the syncers. Dylan gets his own channel just so someone can think of him as that guy with the weird hair from that Drew Carey music video. »

NBC’s twice-canceled stand-up comedy competition show Last Comic Standing is once again proving itself to be an unkillable comedy cockroach, earning a previously unheard of third chance to establish itself with audiences after a three-year absence from the airwaves.
More a fixer-upper than your usual television reboot, new producer (and host?) Wanda Sykes is going to have to have a fair amount of work on her hands to sell a series that carries the weight of its past baggage (the Drew Carey controversy and accusations of favoritism in the casting process) alongside all the good, prompting the question: Why not just start from scratch?
Maybe NBC ...

The Emmy-winning daytime-tv legend will be seen again on the weekday CBS program Thursday, Dec. 12 -- the day he turns 90. It's part of a week of episodes celebrating the milestone and also highlighting a mission famously advocated by animal-rights crusader Barker: pet adoption.
The birthday episode was taped recently, and Barker confirms his return to the "Price" set was emotional. However, he also tells Zap2it of the genre, "Some of the shows that they have brought on, and that have disappeared, haven't really been game shows. Though they call them that."
Several luxury vehicles, worth more than $500,000 combined, will be given away next week; "The Young and the Restless" stars will serve as special guest models.
The Price Is Right is ready to rev its engines.

The luxury vehicles, combined worth more than $500,000, include a Porsche 911 Carrera, a Mercedes-Benz Sl 550 convertible, a BMW 640i convertible, a Jaguar Xk touring convertible and an Audi R8 V8 Coupe Quattro.
During "Dream Car Week" contestants also will have the opportunity to win more than $1 million in cash and prizes. Watch a sneak peek below.

Cedric: Definitely. Right off, it was one of the reasons why I was excited about doing the show ... Steve taking "Family Feud" and really making the show popular again. He has a lot of fun doing it. I called him. I was like, you know, "You're having a real good time doing this show, and I have the opportunity to host 'Millionaire.' "
So for me, it was one of the reasons -- and, of course, seeing other comedians who have done it: Drew Carey, Wayne Brady, Jeff Foxworthy. A lot of those guys motivated me to look at this as a great opportunity to do something fun and exciting.
Zap2it: Is it also an opportunity to extend your own brand as a comedian? »
"The Price Is Right" aired a special military tribute for Veteran's Day on Monday (Nov. 11). Find out what host Drew Carey had to say about having the vets around. Also, there were a few rather incredible stories from the audience.
How does a show like "The Price Is Right" pay tribute to military service? Mainly, this came about with a veteran-only audience. And everyone in that audience went home with at least a small prize -- the show gave all audience members vouchers for purchases at military stores.
In any taping, Drew Carey pretty much credits the audience with much of the energy seen on "The Price Is Right." "The contestants should be the energy," the host said. "You can't out-entertain the contestants. I'd have to be a maniac to do that ... Once you're out on stage and you hear all the people -- if that doesn't get you pumped up, »
