Friday and I am so thankful this crazy week is over! The fundraiser for my daughter’s pre-school was a great success, and I’m so proud of all the parents who helped pull it off, as well as the businesses who helped us! 😀 Okay enough about me and my boring life 😉 let’s get to the good stuff, the TV news.
After more than two decades, the reigning queen of daytime talk shows, Oprah Winfrey, is saying farewell. Oprah announced today on a live episode of her show that she will be ending the run of her show on September 9, 2011 which will give her exactly 25 years. That is an amazing span of inspiration, interviews and controversy and she’ll be missed. Oprah won’t entirely be gone from our TV universe, she’ll be a strong force on her on network OWN. So get your fill of Oprah for the next 18 months, and then bid the talk diva goodbye. I’ve watched Oprah on and off for a long time, and I admit I’ll miss her. However, it’s nice that she’s helped launch shows such as, Rachael Ray, Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz. Source
More after the jump.
Brian Austin Green is coming back to Smallville, meaning Metallo is pulling a Lazareth and rising from the dead. Green will be coming back for the 18th episode of the season, which will air sometime in the spring. I think this is good news. Not only is Green easy on the eyes, but Metallo is one of the more amusing villains, don’t you agree? Source
Is it possible that Trauma has survived a near death experience? It’s not nearly a full reprieve, but the NBC drama which originally only had 13 episodes ordered has been given some good news with NBC ordering 3 more episodes. Only three you say? Well for a show that looked like it was about to flat line, I think that’s a miracle. Don’t get me wrong, I actually enjoy the show, it’s quite decent. It’s no Third Watch or ER but I think it deserves a little more credit than it’s been given in the past. Expect Trauma to have aired 10 episodes by the New Year with the last 6 to be aired later in the TV season. In the meantime give the show a chance, you can catch it Mondays at 9 pm on NBC. Source
Okay, that’s it for tonight but I’ll be back later this weekend with my TV review.
