(Author’s Note: This is part of an ongoing series where Bj Colangelo takes a trip down memory lane and talks about the kid friendly horror TV shows from the 1990s/early 2000s that helped shape her into the horror loving fangirl she is today.)
Known for being the most tame and family friendly of all of the kid’s channels, The Disney Channel knew they had to compete with the other stations and show some sort of creepy kid’s show to keep the channel “hip” and entertaining. So Weird was a television series shot in Vancouver, British Columbia that aired on the Disney Channel as a midseason replacement from January 18, 1999 to September 28, 2001.

Lindsay Lohan wept as Oprah Winfrey praised her during an impromptu interview on David Letterman's show this week. The 'Mean Girls' actress - whose post-rehab attempts to get her career back on track are being chronicled in documentary series 'Lindsay' on the media mogul's Own network - initially planned to prank call her mentor, but the retiring talk show host quickly blew his own cover and had a serious chat about his famous guest instead. Lindsay asked the audience: "I think maybe I should just call her right now. Should we call Oprah? "I think so. Do you have a phone? Have we got a phone?" Letterman, 66, took the phone and in a feminine voice said: "Yes, can I speak to Oprah Winfrey please? Hi, this is, uh, Lindsay Lohan's secretary." He quickly owned up to his real identity when Oprah asked who was on the line, »
"Shadowfax! Show us the meaning of haste!" When you think of celebrities best known by a stage name consisting of a single word, you think of Cher, Oprah or Madonna, but there is one more that should roll off the tip of your tongue, Blanco! He was the heart, soul and glue of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy, but he tragically passed away a few days ago. His caretaker, Cynthia Royal, explained to theonering.net that Blanco had endured "serious issues with his intestinal tract and liver." Like a loyal friend, Royal stayed with Blanco til the bitter end. "Although my heart was breaking," she explains, "as my final gift to him, I stayed strong, balanced and focused, gently repeating “Relax Blanco. Let go. Walk into the light. Relax and let go” as the Blanco I’ve known so well and loved so deeply slipped away." Blanco »

The media mogul posted an adorable Instagram video today in honor of National Pet Day—and we gotta say, it's basically the cutest thing we've seen all day.

"You get a treat, you get a treat, everybody gets a treat!" she says in the clip. Handfed by O herself? These five fur balls are living »

Stephen Colbert will be taking over for David Letterman come 2015, CBS announced today. Colbert's been on TV for more than a decade, but a lot of that has been in character as "Stephen Colbert," a blowhard persona Colbert developed on The Daily Show and then perfected on The Colbert Report. Colbert has reportedly said that his Late Show will not be done in character, and that makes sense: The Colbert Report itself is a satire, whereas Late Show simply is not. Even if Colbert is most familiar as "Colbert," there's plenty of material out there with him out of character — and some where he plays completely different characters altogether. Here are some highlights:Accepting an award from the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America: Here's Colbert interviewing America's science hero Neil deGrasse Tyson: In 2012, Colbert and his wife Evie sat down for an hour-long chat with Oprah: On most »

I never dreamed that I would follow in his footsteps, though everyone in late night follows Dave's lead," Colbert, 49, says in a statement. "I'm thrilled and grateful that CBS chose me. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go grind a gap in my front teeth." Related Video: 5 Times Stephen Colbert Visited the Late ShowColbert »

Jimmy Fallon proved once again that he is just as good a musician as he is a talk show host. The Tonight Show host took to the stage on Wednesday with Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks for a '70-style performance where he played the role of "fat Tom Petty." Video: Lindsay Lohan Gets Emotional Over Oprah Phone Call on 'Late Show' With a sleek blonde bowl cut, a guitar slung around his neck and mood-inducing soft focus camera work, Fallon perfectly looked the part as he strummed along to "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around" with Nicks.

David Letterman and Lindsay Lohan are terrible at prank calling! The "Lindsay" star and late night host called LiLo's boss, Oprah Winfrey, during an appearance on "The Late Show," airing Wednesday. The actress suggested that she should give Lady O a call, saying, "I think maybe I should just call her right now. Should we call Oprah?""No, we're not," Letterman argued. "I think so," Lohan told him. "Is there a phone? Have you got a phone?"Letterman finally obliged, calling Oprah and pretending (very unconvincingly) to be Lohan’s secretary until Oprah asked, for the second time, "Who is this?" and he revealed himself. The funny man then asked Winfrey how she thinks the once-troubled star is doing now. Lohan admitted on Sunday's episode of her Own docuseries that she's relapsed with alcohol since leaving rehab."I think she's doing okay. What do you think?" she asked."I've loved »

No. That one word can make life feel like a series of doors closing in our face. From Marilyn Monroe to Oprah, some of the world's most influential women grew very familiar with that routine early on in their careers. Marilyn worked in a factory before she became the most famous actress in the world, and Oprah turned a major demotion in local news into an opportunity for a national talk show. Their examples of perseverance serve as a reminder that history has been paved by people who channeled their disappointment into onward momentum.

Jimmy Fallon got Lindsay Lohan first — but David Letterman got her best when he turned her visit to his CBS late-night program into a sparring match with Oprah Winfrey, aka Lohan’s life coach/reality-series producer. In the segment taped today for tonight’s show (see the clip below), Lohan is the one who first said, “Should we call Oprah?” while she and Dave were talking. As befits the importance of the occasion — Lohan’s Own ratings are taking a tumble, with most recently episode scoring only 390,000 viewers — the child-star-turned-adult-actress-train-wreck is dressed as a bedazzled baby-grand piano. Dave responds, grumpily, “No, we’re not.” This back and forth continued for a while — Lohan staunchly pro-Oprah-calling, Dave steadfastly anti-Oprah-calling, until the call is finally made. Raise your hand if you too thought all along that would be the outcome. Dave starts off strong, throwing Oprah off by using another voice. »

David Letterman is really bad at prank calling.
Lindsay Lohan went on The Late Show, which airs Wednesday night, and proposed — nay, begged – Letterman to call Oprah on-air. Letterman obliged, calling Oprah and pretending (very unconvincingly) to be Lohan’s secretary until Oprah asked, for the second time, “Who is this?” and he revealed himself.
Oprah has been working with Lohan on Own docu-series Lindsay, which chronicles the actress’ post-rehab life as she struggles to stay clean, so the first question Letterman asked her was how the starlet’s doing. “I think she’s doing okay,” Oprah said as Lohan started tearing up. »

Lindsay Lohan has Oprah Winfrey on speed dial. The Lindsay star called her boss during a pre-taped appearance on The Late Show, airing Wednesday. The actress, who calls Winfrey her "mentor," suggested that she should give the talk show icon a ring. "I think maybe I should just call her right now," the 27-year-old actress told host David Letterman, pulling out her cell phone. "Should we call Oprah?" "No, we're not," said Letterman, who settled his longstanding feud with the TV titan in January 2013. "I think so," Lohan told him. "Is there a phone? Have you got a phone?" "We're not calling Oprah," Letterman said »
David Letterman’s sign-off from CBS’ “Late Show” next year will not only mark the end of an era in latenight, it will bring the curtain down on one of the most unique and lucrative deals ever crafted for a television star.
But Team Letterman took advantage of a moment in time that gave it the utmost leverage. NBC had been so ham-fisted in its handling of “The Tonight Show” transition in 1991 that it alienated Johnny Carson and Letterman, Carson’s hand-picked successor. That made Letterman a red-hot commodity for a rival network that was desperate to break into the latenight business. Surprisingly, for all its Tiffany successes, CBS had never fostered a latenight franchise to rival NBC — or even ABC’s perch with “Nightline. »
