Starring Dave Foley (Kids in the Hall), Stephen Root (Office Space), Andy Dick (Less Than Perfect), Maura Tierney (ER), Vicki Lewis (Three Sisters), Joe Rogan (Fear Factor), Khandi Alexander (ER), Phil Hartman (Saturday Night Live) and Jon Lovitz (Saturday Night Live), NewsRadio delivers tons of laughs in this 12-disc set featuring all 97 episodes of the series. Bonus material includes hilarious commentary tracks (some of the best I've ever heard), blooper reels, filmographies, featurettes, and more.

Did absence make our hearts grow fonder of late-night TV's hosts, missing in action for the last two months? I suppose it's possible, though I doubt anyone's preferences were changed by what they saw Wednesday night, when all of the network hosts finally returned to work, all but David Letterman and Craig Ferguson without writers. (If anything grew, it was facial hair, at least on Dave and Conan.)If you're the sort who for whatever reason prefers affable Jay Leno over cranky Dave, or chooses to stay up late for the delectable derangement that is Conan OBrien, nothing about Wednesdays opening night would likely have shaken you from your long-ingrained after-hours habits. The strike beards sported by Dave and Conan in solidarity with the still-striking writers (and to prove that I still have some testosterone, joked Conan) were the most noticeable changes on the late-night landscape.Heres my report card on late-nights opening night, keeping in mind ...

It seems Jessica Simpson's new movie, Blonde Ambition, may have set some sort of record. With an opening day gross of $384, it may be one of the lowest grossing theatrical films ever. In what sounds like a shamelessly uncredited remake of Mike Nichols' Academy Award-winning comedy Working Girl, Simpson stars as a sweet, small-town gal from Oklahoma who climbs the corporate ladder at a construction firm in big, bad New York City. My guess is that a credited Luke Wilson stars as the Harrison Ford character. Now in all fairness, Blonde Ambition, which was produced by father Joe Simpson's ickily named Papa Joe Productions, was only released into eight theaters, all in Simpson's and Wilson's home state of Texas. To put this in perspective, I Am Legend opened across the country on over 3600 screens, and Blonde Ambition, which is scheduled to come out on DVD on January 22 anyway, arrived with none of the ad muscle accompanying its holiday season competition, like this week's box-office cha...
Thankfully tonights episode brought us back to the interesting cases and patients that draw out the best and the worst in our favorite ER doctors and nurses We were also treated to some more superlative guest-acting Sean Young is certainly no Forest Whitaker but she was poignant and sympathetic in her portrayal of the mother suspiciously dying from liver failure Though I wasnt the least bit surprised that the hateful older son was complicit in her scheme to slowly kill herself without jeopardizing the insurance money for her sons I did think this was an interesting way to once again call Gates moral compass into question Lukas assessment of Gates ability to lie without a second thought was spot-on It was interesting to juxtapose this story against Neelas refusal to participate in Manishs surgey due to her own reservations about his motives for donating a kidney Frankly I was somewhat surprised at Dubenkos pragmatic approach
Never has the word "Andy" been such a game-changer, eh?At this past Friday's taping of Jimmy Kimmel Live, comedian Andy Dick had to be forcibly removed from the stage when he ignored repeated requests to cease touching/poking/caressing Guest No. 2, Ivanka Trump. (Video here.) Even despite the talker host's warning that, "Donald Trump will kill both of us," the possibly inebriated Dick persisted in pawing the titan's pretty offspring, requiring security guards to literally drag him off stage, down the hall, past hair-and-makeup, and back into obscurity.
Question: Obviously there are tons of Christmas movies, but how about Hannukah movies? I don't want episodes of TV shows – I'm looking for real movies.
Answer: All I can come up with are two comedies: The Hebrew Hammer (2003), starring Adam Goldberg as hardboiled Jewish private eye Mordechai Jefferson Carver, who teams up with the Kwanzaa Liberation Front to defeat evil Santa Damian's (Andy Dick) plot to enforce holiday hegemony, and Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights (2002), an animated feature. Eight Crazy Nights is family-friendly (assuming your family isn't too uptight), while The Hebrew Hammer is not — it's pretty damned funny, though.
On Sept. 15 ABC will premiere Celebrity A-List Bloopers, a special cohosted by Dick Clark and Sherri Shepherd and featuring foul-ups, bleeps and blunders by "Hollywood's biggest stars," including Andy Dick, Wayne Brady, Sharon Osbourne, Ryan Seacrest and Kevin Sorbo. I know what you're thinking: Something is wrong with the "A" on my keyboard.
[Editor's Note: The Teen Choice Awards were rebroadcast on Wednesday night on the TV Guide Channel.] I have to say right away, our TV Guide Channel kicked butt on the official red carpet two-hour preshow, and I'd state this even if I didn't work here. Kimberly Caldwell, Rosanna Tavarez and Chris Booker were awesome hosts and set the proper tone for Fox's awards show. Speaking of which…8:00 pm Gwen Stefani opens the show with her No. 1 hit "Hollaback Girl." Can I stress how much I love the original, unedited version and how much I detest the edited version? I know it's network TV, but why perform the song if it has to be edited? Sing "Rich Girl" or something else. All those "shhh" sounds go right through me. OK — got that off my chest.8:06 I said this about the MTV Movie Awards and I'll say it here. How does Andy Dick continue to get booked on these awards each year? So. Not. Funny.8:12 Jim Car
When Andy Dick's name is mentioned, perhaps you think of his off-the-wall antics on NewsRadio or his old, self-titled MTV show. Or maybe you associate him with the Machiavellian psycho he's playing on his new MTV show, the reality spoof The Assistant (airing Mondays at 10:30 pm/ET), or his scene-stealing as a pencil-necked office grunt on ABC's "late, lamented" workplace laffer, Less than Perfect. Then again, you might know him best as the rogue male who's had so many brushes with the law that Cops could make him a regular. Whatever your impression of the kooky actor is, it doesn't matter; it's going to change once you've read this TV Guide Online article, a Q&A so candid that you may be moved to tears (or something). Heck, by the time we had said our goodbyes, both the funnyman and his interviewer had learned something new. Could be that you will, too.

As the Television Critics Assoc. press tour continues in L.A., so do Party Boy's wild nights on the TCA circuit. On Tuesday, ABC threw a star-studded cocktail party in Century City. While it lacked cool roller-coaster rides like NBC's bash, the Alphabet shindig did boast an impressive talent turnout...
Mingling his way through the crowd, Party Boy could scarcely turn around without bumping into a TV star. Seriously. I actually tripped over Sports Night's Felicity Huffman, who was busily talking up her role in this fall's Desperate Housewives. Oops!
The Desperate dream cast includes alumni from another splashy nighttime soap, Melrose Place. In fact, Marcia Cross (Crazy Kimberly) and Doug Savant (Gay Matt) are both in it. Savant's real-life wife, Laura Leighton (Slutty Sydney), also came as his date. "It's a regular Melrose reunion here," Savant laughed, adding tha
