VH1 has made another move down the scripted television path, giving the greenlight to the hourlong series Bounce. Dean Cain, Kimberly Elise and Charlotte Ross star in the show, which focuses on the dance squad for a Los Angeles basketball team and their “lives and loves”, which I translate as meaning: we’ll see a lot of people wearing very little
There’s no clear winner in the stand off between DirecTV and Viacom, but there are plenty of losers, most specifically all of the service’s subscribers who are now without Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, Spike, BET, VH1 and others. The channels, seventeen in all, went dark at midnight EST last night, and for the time being, there seems to be no clear solution within reach.
About a week ago, VH1 tapped Hollywood Exes for a stint on the network. The upcoming show will follow several of the ex-wives of famous celebrities including Will Smith, R. Kelly, Eddie Murphy, and Jose Canseco. Now, Dina Lohan is set to join the cast of the reality program
Next to throw their hat in to the singing competition series ring appears to be VH1. It’s actually kind of a surprise that it’s taken this long for a cable network that was once music-video based to jump into the singing competition fray. They’ve put into development 60-Minute Superstar, a singing show with a twist.
In a new spin on the slew of reality shows surrounding the wives of anyone even remotely interesting, VH1 has ordered an unscripted series that focuses on women who aren’t wives anymore, at least not to these famous guys. Hollywood Exes will follow the lives of ex-wives of famous men from Will Smith to Jose Canseco
While it was Playboy that put Jenny McCarthy on the map, many of us remember her best for her goofy antics as host on MTV’s equally goofy match-making game show Singled Out. Since then, she’s taken her bubbly personality and sense of humor on to other projects, including numerous appearances in film and television. A recent appearance includes co-hosting last December’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve broadcast on ABC, during which she memorably locked lips with the a member of the local law enforcement just after the ball dropped.
Amazon made a move towards expanding their streaming content for Amazon Prime subscribers with an announcement today on a deal with networks like Comedy Central and Nickelodeon that will bring more than 2000 new titles to the Amazon Instant Video streaming library. Should Netflix be looking in their rear-view mirror?
A true reality “wives” show can’t totally earn street cred until it manages a spinoff. With that in mind, it seemed like a spinoff might be impossible for the Staten Island Mob Wives crowd, who incurred criticism and controversy after airing family secrets on TV (Renee and Jennifer Graziano’s dad is no longer on speaking terms with his daughters). Turns out this is less of a hindrance than one would presume, and VH1 has managed to spawn a sequel – one that is gearing up to begin production soon.
Even celebrities can second guess their line of work and American Idol judge Randy Jackson is ready to exploit the “what if” possibilities. He’s put together a new show with Shed Media for VH1 called Aptitude Test that will follow celebrities as they try out a new career. Each episode will feature a celebrity who will take a high school aptitude test to determine what he or she is really good at. Then, the show will disguise the celebrity and send him or her out into the field, sort of like Undercover Boss.
VH1’s new show will be structured around helping celebrity couples work through their problems. The couples will enter therapy and will work out issues via a nationally televised forum. Something tells me if Ashton and Demi truly do have issues, we won’t be hearing about it on VH1. Doug Hutchinson and Courtney Alexis Stodden on the other hand…
It's been a summer of nostalgia for 90's kids like me who have been enjoying re-airings of popular classic Nickelodeon shows, along with MTV's promise that new episodes of Beavis and Butthead are returning. The latest TV reboot is VH1's hit Pop Up Video, and they're using one of Britney Spears' biggest hits to kick off the new season.
I’m not opposed to celebrity reality shows as a rule. It’s my view that the value of these shows in an educational and entertaining level relies largely on whether or not the subjects are willing to be themselves. It’s easy to tell the difference between the reality TV star who’s fully aware of the cameras at all times and putting on a show, from the one who lets go and take advantage of the situation, not by trying to manipulate the viewers into seeing the story they want told, but by being themselves and letting the story tell itself.
Why the hell was this even cancelled in the first place? Most programs eventually run the risk of getting old or appearing dated, but the basic concept of Pop Up Video was that it changed with the times
I’m not saying I won’t watch this mess, but in the grand scheme of LC associates, Audrina is pretty low in my list in terms of desired reality shows. Where’s Lo? Better yet, where’s Dieter?
Outside of Clueless, there’s, of course, a long and sordid history of this kind of thing, and while it doesn’t exactly stink of originality, since the majority of new television
