How I Got My Shows... (Part 2)

So, in my last blog I talked about how I got my Nickelodeon show Beyond the Break. (By the way, the second season starts this Friday night! So make sure to TiVo and watch.)But I wanna tell you how I became the new face of G4... I got a call from my hosting agent one day about an audition. Just like any other day, this was just another audition. I went into G4, not knowing exactly what the audition entailed. I saw a bunch of pretty girls sitting reading scripts and primping with their compact mirrors. I looked over the script briefly, but in hosting auditions, I usually try not to overthink and just go in and be myself. My name was called and I went into a very small room — there was a camera, a camera operator and the casting director. They had a script for me to read and then asked me to improv stuff about entertainment headlines — I think I talked about Britney driving with her baby in her lap.A week later my agent called and said G4 wanted to see me for another show, Fo... read more

How I Got My Shows... (Part 1)

This week has been crazy. I spent the Thanksgiving weekend back in Oklahoma with the family... my mom was obsessed with picking up people's pumpkins from the street and roasting the seeds. I had to get out of the car in the cold a few times to load more than a handful of strangers' pumpkins. I flew home Monday to LA morning and had to go from the airport to an audition and then immediately to the G4 studios to shoot a live TV show. This has been the schedule for my life lately, so everything went smoothly because I'm used to it.Yesterday on Attack of the Show, we had a very special guest... I was very excited because he's fellow TV Guide blogger John Lehr. We laughed together, reminisced together, and even shed a few tears together... I think we're best friends now. I doubt he'd say the same, but I thought that if I put it out in the universe it might come true... fingers crossed!If you haven't checked out his blog yet, you should, but also watch his new TV show 10 Items or Less.

Hello TV Land!!

I'm Olivia Munn and this is my first blog for TV Guide... I'm so excited to reach out to my peers, aka, the entire TV-watching world. In case you don't know me — and there's a good chance of that — I'm an actress and TV host. I have a recurring role on Nickelodeon's nighttime teen network, The N. It's a show called Beyond the Break and it's about amateur surf girls trying to break out... I play Mily Acuna, a local tough chick. And look for me in Rob Schneider's next film, Big Stan, coming out early next year.Along with acting, I also became the face of the cable network G4. It used to be about video games and technology... and even though it's still about that, we've branched out to more general fare. I host three shows for them — The Daily Nut (podcast), Formula D and the main show for the network, Attack of the Show. AOTS is daily and kinda like Regis and Kelly meets TRL meets The Daily Show.So now that you have a sense of what I do for a living, I can start bloggin... read more
