Alec Baldwin and the Creator of “My Name is Earl” Don’t Play Nice

September 9, 2008

So, Alec Baldwin feels like NBC hasn’t done enough to publicize his show 30 Rock, which is too bad, because it’s the funniest and most clever sitcom on TV right now.  So, Alec Baldwin’s mad, right and he’s all…

“NBC hasn’t done a thing to help this show (’30 Rock’). They’ve gone out of their way to wring the last drops out of ‘My Name Is Earl’ and ‘Scrubs.’ Those shows are done! They’re cooked! Yet they do a one-hour episode of ‘Earl.'”

Well, Greg Garcia, creator of My Name is Earl is like so pissed, right?  Well, he’s all like..

“(Baldwin) sounds like a psychotic narcissist. Instead of blaming NBC, I think Alec should consider that some people in America may not want to watch a man who cusses out his own 11-year-old daughter on a phone message. Oh, and the reason NBC occasionally puts on an hour long episode of ‘Earl’ is because an hour of ‘Earl’ gets better ratings than an ‘Earl’ followed by a ’30 Rock.’ It’s called math, stupid.”

So then, Alec Baldwin is probably encouraged by his publicist to make amends, so he issues a half-hearted apology/low blow  that ranks quite high in the history of  back handed apologies.

My apologies to the cast and crews of My Name Is Earl and Scrubs. In my frustration with NBC’s reprehensible promotion of 30 Rock, I took an unfortunate swipe at both of those shows and that was not cool.

But, for Earl’s creator, Greg Garcia, who referred to me as a “psychotic”, I have only one question. Why are you Scientologists always rendering these medical opinions you aren’t qualified to give?

I chuckle when celebs, who are usually muzzled by agents/studios, throw it down and show how they really feel.

Wikipedia scoops NBC and major media, updater gets fired

June 23, 2008

When Tim Russert collapsed ten days ago, his colleagues at NBC held off reporting the news for almost two hours so his family wouldn’t hear about it from the media. They also asked other TV networks to hold off reporting it, which they apparently agreed to do. A decade ago, when TV and radio had a lock on real-time news dissemination, this cozy arrangement might have stopped the news from spreading. In this day and age, of course, it didn’t.

Alec Baldwin will be your boyfriend

This guy is freakin’ hilarious on NBC’s “30 Rock.”

“I’ve been single for seven years and as I get older, I think all I want is to be loved. The world becomes a place where you think, let everyone else have it. Let them all fight over jobs and money . . . You want things in life that are lovely.”
