Rainy days and Mondays…   

I hope everyone who celebrates it had a lovely Easter yesterday and that those who don’t just had a nice Sunday. I meant to post this weekend but life kept me busy from Friday afternoon on… needless to say, I still owe everyone answers from the meme from Friday. This is why I shouldn’t do memes! I also have contest winners to announce. (I ended up drawing two names since I had so many entries this time.) Look for that post and the new contest post in a bit.

I didn’t watch much TV this weekend. I was late getting home last night so I only caught the last fifteen minutes of TAR. Just enough to make me fear for my favorite team. Luckily they’re still safe. After that, I went right to bed without watching any of my other Sunday shows. I did watch my tape of Robin Hood which I’m still in love with and I vaguely recall catching up on things I taped but I don’t remember what! Ah well. That just means you are spared my commentary until tomorrow. Sometime this week, in between packing and work (and new episodes of shows), I will find time to review both the Traveler and the Comedy Central Roast of William Shatner dvds I have.

In the meantime, I’ve got two press releases for you related to the two shows I’ll be watching tonight… (this is a lie, I’ll probably watch King of Queens too). Anyway, check out the links below to read more about tonight’s episode of How I Met Your Mother and the premiere of NBC’s new improv comedy, Thank God You’re Here. Both shows look to deliver a laughter filled night!

New “America’s Got Talent” Host Jerry Springer to Guest in Surprise Appearance

NBC’s new improv comedy challenge series “Thank God You’re Here” — television’s most dangerous new comedy challenge premiering Monday, April 9 (9-10 p.m. ET) — has added a few more brave actors to the guest-star line up. Joining host David Alan Grier and improv judge Dave Foley will be Kevin Nealon (“SNL,” “Weeds”), Bill Bellamy (“Last Comic Standing”), Jane Lynch (“For Your Consideration,” “Best in Show”), Richard Kind (“Mad About You”), Edie McClurg (“Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”), Wendie Malick (“Just Shoot Me”), Brian Poeshn (“The Sarah Silverman Program”) and Harland Williams (“Dumb & Dumber”).

In addition, new “America’s Got Talent” host Jerry Springer will make a surprise appearance in an upcoming episode.

They join previously announced guest stars including Jennifer Coolidge (“For Your Consideration,” “Best in Show”), Bryan Cranston (“Malcolm in the Middle”), Joel McHale (E! Entertainment’s “The Soup”), Tom Arnold (“Best Damn Sports Show”), Fran Drescher (“The Nanny”), Fred Willard (“For Your Consideration,” “Best in Show”), Nicole Sullivan (“Mad TV,” NBC’s “Raines”), Angela Kinsey (“The Office”), Kurtwood Smith (“That 70′s Show”), George Takei (“Star Trek,” “Heroes”), Shannon Elizabeth (“American Pie”), Eddie Kay Thomas (“American Pie”), Former “Seinfeld” Stars Jason Alexander and Wayne Knight and former “SNL” cast member Ana Gasteyer as well as comedians Paul Rodriguez, Tom Green, Chelsea Handler and Mo’Nique.

From the producers of “American Idol,” the improv comedy series which originated in Australia — and continues to be Australia’s number one hit for the past two years — is hosted in America by David Alan Grier (“In Living Color”) and presided over by improv judge, Dave Foley (“NewsRadio,” “Kids In the Hall”). “Thank God You’re Here” showcases the improv skills of a group of four brave actors each week, as they walk into the high wire act known as improv, into a live sketch without a net � or script, their only armor and motivation is an unforeseen and unexplained wardrobe change. The only thing the celebrity can count on when walking into the scenario is a desperate greeting from a fellow actor in the skit, proclaiming upon their arrival, “Thank God You’re Here!”

“Thank God You’re Here” is produced by FremantleMedia North America. Cecile Frot-Coutaz, CEO of FremantleMedia North America (“American Idol”), is the executive producer. Fax Bahr and Adam Small (“The Jamie Kennedy Experiment,” “Mad TV”) are executive producers. David Alan Grier is producer.
