The “Seriously Adam Lambert? Really?” Edition

  • Speaking of which, Scandalist put together 5 covers of “Ring of Fire” better than his last night.
  • In other Idol chatter, check out some of Paula Abdul’s “poetry.” I thought she’d gone of the deep end this year but it turns out she’s always been this way.
  • Seth Rogen may host SNL in April. Sweet! BTW did you catch SNL on Saturday? Tracy Morgan did a great job and we saw the triumphant return of Astronaut Jones. No new clip, I’m making do with the old ones.
  • Guess who signed on to do a cameo on The Cleveland Show? Sir Kanye!
  • And finally, my favorite non-TV related link of the week: Scanwiches I’ve yet to meet a food Tumblr I didn’t like.

Guess which politico just got cast in Seth MacFarlane’s Family Guy spin-off, The Cleveland Show? Oh and the best part: she’s playing the matriarch of a family of bears that lives next door to Cleveland.

Give up?

It’s Arianna Huffington.

I’d like to think she has better things to do, but then again it’s probably a lot of coin for not a lot of work. You go girl.

I watched the trailer for the new Family Guy spin-off The Cleveland Show this afternoon. You can take a peak as well right here.

I can’t really tell which characters are real and which were just Family Guy inspired jokes. Will Cleveland really live next door to a family of bears? Am I an idiot for asking? Am I supposed to understand how the Seth McFarland universe works or just accept it?

But you know what saved the whole thing? The little ditty Cleveland sang at the end. I don’t know if it’s the theme song, but if anything from this ridiculous trailer gets kept, that’s it.

I’m cautiously optimistic. I will root for this show because:

1. That damn song is so catchy.
2. I always liked Cleveland.
3. I support shows with strong minority leads. If I have to take them animated form, then so be it.

Seth Macfarlane, the twisted brain behind Family Guy, American Dad and the new Family Guy Spinoff (The Cleveland Show), just signed a massive deal with 20th Century Fox. When I say massive, I’m not exaggerating. Seriously ridiculous. 

Macfarlane is set to make $100 Million between now and 2012  for writing and producing his current animated docket and an upcoming live-action show. 
Learn from this people: You too can make an excess of $25 Million a year for coming up with crass humor and weak plots…and this from a fan. 
Seth Macfarlane is now the highest paid writer-producer in television, and a lot of people would argue that he’s not even very funny. 
Funny or not, the man is successful. If nothing else he is a master of raunchy jokes, timing, negotiation and luck.
