RIP Last Comic Standing 2003-2009

lastcomic_last

After six seasons and 59 episodes, NBC laid to rest its hit or miss reality television series Last Comic Standing. This was a show that showed potential but never really took off. It was just there. Sometimes funny, most of the time corny and dragging. Comedy is hard. Finding great original material is harder. How can it compete with American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance or Dancing With the Stars?

Not sure if this is temporary or if they’re planning a comeback in the near future. For now the show is officially canceled and will not be going back for Season 7. That makes Iliza Shlesinger, the “Last Comic Standing” indeed!

The show was created and produced by Peter Engel. Hosts included Jay Mohr (Seasons 1-3), Anthony Clark (Season 4), Bill Bellamy (Seasons 5-6) and British TV host Fearne Cotton (Season 6)

Ant’s Last Rants and he couldn’t have shown it best through the clips why the show had to end… (bet he didn’t know at the time this was going to be his last episode!)

Complete Trailer of ‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince’, Summer Showing July 15

“Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. Together they work to find the key to unlock Voldemort’s defenses and, to this end, Dumbledore recruits his old friend and colleague, the well-connected and unsuspecting bon vivant Professor Horace Slughorn, whom he believes holds crucial information.

Meanwhile, the students are under attack from a very different adversary as teenage hormones rage across the ramparts. Harry finds himself more and more drawn to Ginny, but so is Dean Thomas. And Lavender Brown has decided that Ron is the one for her, only she hadn’t counted on Romilda Vane’s chocolates! And then there’s Hermione, simmering with jealousy but determined not to show her feelings. As romance blossoms, one student remains aloof. He is determined to make his mark, albeit a dark one. Love is in the air, but tragedy lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again.”

America’s Got Talent Season 4 Premiere Set for June 23rd

nickcannon

The fourth season of NBC’s summer reality competition series begin on Tuesday, June 23rd 9/8 C with a two-hour show. The same trio of clowns err judges are back: Piers Morgan, David Hasselhoof and Sharon Osbourne but NBC says bye to Jerry Springer! Hurray for that!

Nick Cannon joins “America’s Got Talent” as the new host. According to its about page at NBC.com, Nick is:

Cited by People magazine as one of the “Top Ten Most Successful Young People in Hollywood,” Cannon also was featured on the cover of Black Enterprises’ “40 Under 40.” Cannon, 28, is a successful, multi-faceted entertainer: film star, comedian, musician, writer and executive producer of his own hit TV shows.

A San Diego native, Cannon began performing at the age of eight after his grandfather left him several instruments as gifts. Through what Cannon recalls as “a lot of trial and failure,” he recorded his first song at home on his boom box. Soon after, Cannon took to the stage to perform his music along with standup comedy.

In 2008, Cannon hosted the Teen Choice Awards for FBC, and most recently was the host/deejay for ABC’s highly successful Presidential Inaugural Neighborhood Ball. Cannon’s other film credits include the Sundance Film Festival films “Weapons” and “American Son.” His most recent role in the psychological thriller, “The Killing Room.” He now has his own multi-media company — NCredible Entertainment — which has several TV shows and films in development.

So long as Jerry Springer isn’t around anymore, we’re happy. America’s Got Talent will be on every Tuesday night all summer long at 9/8pm Central.
