Comedian Jim Norton (featured in the above video interview we did) will be a guest star in this Sunday's episode of HBO's "Bored To Death" in a part written specifically for him by series creator Jonathan Ames. Check it out, his appearance is very funny - Sunday, 10pm, HBO.
The end of the world as we know it? 1. First it was Oprah, now Ryan Seacrest is looking at launching his own cable network. 2. First it was Dr. Oz, now it's Dr. Oz's wife who's (potentially) getting a talk show. 3. First it was Dr. Phil, now it's Dr. Phil's son who's interviewing disgraced people (Rick Sanchez). 4. First it was Meg Whitman (and just about every Republican candidate), now it's Lou Dobbs who's been caught hiring undocumented/illegal workers while speaking out against them.
If only Bill Maher wasn't on or the back up shows of "The Soup" and "Fashion Police" (see clip below) because at 10:15pm tonight TCM will be playing the horror movie, The Gorgon (1964). I saw this movie on KTVU's "Creature Features" when I was a kid of 9 or 10 years old and it freaked me out. To this day, I still remember specific scenes even though I haven't seen the film in over 30 years. Watching it now as an adult will probably result in disappointment so we're going to watch current television rather than walk an old path but in case you are up for a film instead of TV, pop some corn and settle in for a great Peter Cushing film.
