About Those "Dancing" Judges
Yes, Jerry Springer is right. The "Dancing with the Stars" judges are too nice. He said it last night, after they praised him for being entertaining – great job, well done, so much joy, etc. – and then gave him the lowest marks of the night. Again.
Wouldn't you like to see the "American Idol" judges swap places with Carrie Ann, Len and Bruno one week? Just once? Imagine what Simon would say about Springer...
It’s obvious that Springer is the weakest dancer on the floor. Having finished last for three weeks in a row, he could/should go home tonight. But as Bruno noted last night, lots of viewers find him entertaining and they might spare him again tonight.
If he survives for another week, could they let Simon be a judge?
NBC announced today that "Scrubs" returns to the Thursday lineup on Nov. 30, the day after November sweeps. NBC also will move Tina Fey's "30 Rock" to Thursday, for an 8-10 p.m. comedy block. ("Deal/No Deal" now airs 9 pm Thursday.) No word on what happens to John Lithgow's "20 Good Years," which airs with "30 Rock" 8-9 pm Wednesday. My guess its gone.

Seitz knew he was a top 10 finalist in the "Worst Halloween Ever" essay contest promoting the 40th anniversary of the "Great Pumpkin." He wrote about spending a childhood Halloween in a pumpkin patch, as Linus did in the popular TV special. He was awoken by an angry farmer wearing a pumpkin mask – and holding a shotgun – who ordered him off his

On Gary Burbank's show Monday I was asked by a caller about the weird scheduling on TV Land and Nick at Nite, when shows don’t start and stop on the half hour. The caller, Chantel from

RE: Why STAGGERED starting times?Date 10.24.06 AMFrom: TVLTheLink
Nick-at-Nite and TV Land went to "off the clock" scheduling (where shows may not start and stop at the top and bottom of an hour) several months ago for evening and overnight programming. The reason has to do with various contract and market issues. The practice is scheduled to continue at least through the end of the year.
Both networks provide cable and satellite providers and television listing services with this information and I know at least one service (Dish Network) tends to provide the actual airing times (or some approximation of them). The problem is that many networks and listing services (and the Nick-at-Nite and TV Land website) cannot handle listing anything but top and bottom of the hour start and stop times. Discussion is ongoing on how to do this on the Nick-at-Nite and TV Land website should this form of scheduling need to continue past December.
