Today's News: Our Take


MORE JOAN FLUBS

Tuesday's Insider story recounting Joan and Melissa Rivers' Golden Globe pre-show gaffes apparently left off two doozies: Joan asked Andie MacDowell how she liked being on TV's No. 1 show, CSI, and later, she asked former ER nurse Julianna Margulies to reflect on her experience as an ET castmember.

HBO's Big Night!


HBO's Golden Globe after-party, held poolside at Griff's Restaurant at the Beverly Hills Hilton immediately following Sunday's ceremony, had the feel of a warm-and-fuzzy family reunion. Only this clan was unusually attractive, bore little resemblance to each other and had very expensive taste (fresh Maine Lobster was the main course). Still, as Sopranos leading lady Edie Falco explained to TV Guide Online, like most families, the HBO brood have a knack for pulling together when it matters most.

"When Six Feet Under won [for best drama series], I jumped up with excitement because I'm such a huge fan of the show," Falco gushed. "But then I realized, 'Oh, wait a second. If they won then we didn't win.'"

Well, the mob from The Sopranos may have gone home empty-handed read more

Red Carpet Mayhem at Globes


Death and taxes aren't the only things you can count on; rather, you can bet good money that E! Entertainment Television's "Live from the Red Carpet" specials, hosted by Joan and Melissa Rivers, will kick off with a combination of Depends, body odor, fart and rectal thermometer jokes. After all, what better way to set the tone for a glitzy gala like the Golden Globes?

For Sunday night's foray down the crimson rug, did Team Rivers establish a theme? Well, aside from celebrating the birthdays of Lorenzo Lamas, the grandmother of Dule Hill (The West Wing) and co-host Melissa herself, the night's hallmarks were a few good sound bites, traditionally bad gaffes and wayyyy too many cut-aways to mega-star read more

CITY SLICKER

A Spin City rep confirms to TV Guide Online that The West Wing's Martin Sheen — father of City's Golden Globe-winning star Charlie Sheen — will jump networks and make a cameo on his son's ABC sitcom later this season. The episode tapes this week. (Personally, I can't believe NBC is allowing this to happen.) read more
