Rockers Inxs to be on the View

M J + November 20th, 2005 + no replies

Rock Star: Inxs may have ended in September, but the band INXS is out pimping their new single and new singer J.D. Fortune.

Mark your calendar for Wednesday, November 30, 2005 as Inxs is slated to appear on and most likely perform on The View along with the other guest announced named Naomi Moriyama.

Most likely they’ll be performing “Pretty Vegas”.

Pretty Vegas

Oh, and wanna tip on the next band to do the Rock Star thing with Mark Burnett???


Unconfirmed and only a rumour but it does make sense, doesn’t it??? But that’s one togh act to fill – the place of Freddie Mercury…

Martha is out after one season – She’s fired!

Martha seen with the Donald – pre ratings war!

Well, it looks rather official, Martha is out – Donald wins again! According to Yahoo entertainment news, sources at NBC say that the network has passed on another season of Martha’s version of the apprentice – effectively ending her ratings war with Donald Trump. The show has struggled in the ratings since it began in September. A spokesman for NBC said that the show was only ever scheduled for one season – yeah, right. I am not buying that. You mean to tell me that if the ratings had been great and the network and show producers were making money, they would have cancelled? I think not.

This was another effort to spin off from a successful show format that failed. Martha’s show only averaged 6.8 million viewers – according to Nielsen Media Research, significantly lower than Trumps version of the show. The show was partly doomed when it was shifted to the 9 pm time slot against Lost on ABC.

The two-hour live finale is scheduled for December 21st after which the show will be over unless something changes between now and then.

Now, besides time slots, what went wrong with this show?

1. People like Donald better! He is more charismatic, and even funny at times. Watching Martha after the Donald is like watching paint dry.

2. Her daughter. Alexis Stewart was written into the show as a “consultant”. Talk about watching paint dry, this gal has no business in, well, business! She is boorish, unpleasant and dull. Again, put her up against the intelligent, funny and attractive Caroline over on Donald’s show and you have a no-brainer decision on whom to watch.

3. The tasks are more exciting on Donald’s show. New York is a bustling, lively city. The perfect environment for the candidates on the original apprentice to show their stuff. While the tasks haven’t always been full of entertainment and certainly several of them have fallen flat, overall they are much better than Martha’s.

4. The boardroom. Ahh yes, the boardroom scenes have become so important that after the first Apprentice, NBC devoted more time to the boardroom scenes due to popular demand for more Donald laying down the law. Again, comparing the two boardrooms and the dramas that unfold, it is clear that Donald’s show is better. He is more exciting, enigmatic and although it is Martha’s first try at it and I guess I should give her a break, I really don’t want to! She is just not the entertainer that is needed in a boardroom setting. And what is this business with writing cards to people?

5. To much reality TV? Although I don’t want to admit it, maybe there is just too much reality TV on now. Maybe one apprentice is enough?

Whatever the reason, Martha is out and once again, Donald Trump can claim bragging rights to being number one at yet another endeavor. As for me, I am ok with it. Martha’s show is lousy and reality TV junkies need quality to numb the brain and entertain – all at the same time!

Bobby John or Gary – either will do!

Last night was one of the best episodes of Survivor that I recall in some time.

It was very interesting to see how Jamie reacted so deeply to Bobby saying he didn’t have class. Instead of beating up Bobby John we saw Jamie mope and then try to make good by giving up his place in line at the rewards dinner. It didn’t seem all that sincere and was surely 95% strategy, but it made for some good tv watchin’.

And then Jamie gets immunity when he was surely on the chopping block… what luck! I do not like that guy and hope he is leaving soon! But not last night!

And at the end of the show when we thought for sure that Bobby John had been given a pass to stay another week, Gary pulls out the immunity Buddha and throws a curve to the voters.

With no time to discuss among themselves we saw votes the votes stack up for Bobby John.

In my opinion that’s not so bad… I’d also like to see Stephanie get the heave ho.

So now Bobby John is the first member of the jury and as Jeff Probst said – now the lying will get serious but the problem is that the lies be told to the people that will be voting as to who gets the million dollars.

Survivor heats up and is cooking good! Can’t wait for the next episode!

Bye bye Markus
