Fact: Chuck Norris supports the Boy Scouts gay ban. Sadly, unlike the slew of other Chuck Norris facts, this one is actually true (and not funny at all).
The Walker, Texas Ranger star published an article on AmmoLand.com condemning President Barack Obama for "creating a pro-gay Boy Scouts of America."

Rippy will pay a mysterious Warren Buffett-type named Mr. Latimer. As we previously reported, Latimer begins spying on Nate (Timothy Hutton) and the rest of his gang of thieves with selfish intentions. Once Latimer figures out the Leverage team's game, he begins lining his own pockets by taking advantage of the companies Nate's team brings down.
Rippy's character is expected to appear in at least five episodes...

Conan O'Brien brought his Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour to within "200 feet" of NBC headquarters Tuesday with a New York City performance that included a dance-off with his soon-to-be timeslot competitors, Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart.
Conan O'Brien debuts on stage with Self-Pleasuring Panda
O'Brien's Radio City Music Hall show was an especially sweet spot on the 32-city tour because it returned him to the city where he hosted Late Night with Conan O'Brien for 16 years. He was just down the street from 30 Rockefeller Plaza, home of his old studio.
The former Tonight Show host noted ...
Jack McBrayer and Conan O'Brien
Until Conan O'Brien is legally able to appear on TV in the fall, he's trying a different way to make people laugh: a stage show.
Conan O'Brien debuts on stage with Self-Pleasuring Panda
O'Brien returned to Los Angeles over the weekend to perform at the Gibson Amphitheatre, which is just a few buildings away from his now-vacant Tonight Show stage. The proximity fueled the comedian further in taking on evil television executives, comparing NBC to Lord of the Rings' Mordor, the place where television the ring goes to die.
So how is Coco moving on, besides, of course, getting his own TV show on TBS?

OK, there've been a ton of releases lately that we need to discuss, because quite honestly, they are a hoot. And not just "funny, ha-ha" hoots, but also the kind that you see on the shelf and think "Oh. my god... I kind of want that!" So sit back, tell your shame to take the day off and get in with these guilty-in-the-first-degree pleasures of plastic!Walker, Texas Ranger The Complete Fourth Season Come for the "Eyes of a Ranger" theme song, stay for the very special Christmas episode about an Old West Ranger who saved the day, then feast on the two-part season finale that gave us the Sons of Thunder spin-off. And never forget, when the Boogeyman goes to bed, he checks under his bed for Chuck Norris.Soul Food The Complete 3rd Season Before Showtime ever got any attention for Weeds or The Tudors or even The L Word (which we [i[love), there was this stellar NAACP-lauded adaptation of the fabulous Vivica A.

Question: It seems a given, in the many questions about network scheduling that you receive, that Saturday night is where TV shows go to die, so no one schedules a potential keeper on Saturday. Yet within living memory (mine, at least), CBS had a killer Saturday lineup that would put any recent "must-see" night to shame (All in the Family, M*A*S*H, Mary Tyler Moore, Bob Newhart, Carol Burnett). I know we went out on Saturday night in the '70s (and with no TiVo, or even VCRs). It can't just be due to the fracturing of cable — if the audience is really too small on Saturday, then it's too small whether your share is 15 percent or 35 percent. I've been looking back trying to find the tipping point, but I can't see when the landscape changed. What in the business has caused this change in perception? On a completely unrelated note: I have fallen in love with Slings & Arrows. Has there been, or is there going to be, a third season? I need more of New Burbage!
Answer: First off, I'm thrilled
Chuck Norris, Walker, Texas Ranger
Question: I was allowed to watch Walker, Texas Ranger when I was a kid because my folks thought it was a good family show. But I caught a few reruns recently, and it's the most violent show on the planet! What was CBS thinking, promoting that as a family show? Am I nuts on this?
Answer: The most violent show, Craig? I think if you caught Vic Mackey holding a bad guy's head to a stove burner on FX, or the recent gladiator sequence on HBO's Rome, you'd back off a bit on that statement. However, from a network-TV point of view, you've still got a point. It was, at least, one of the most violent network shows at the time. I remember watching a Walker episode in which Walker entered a w
