Do you Hulu?

Hulu.com, the advertising-supported online video site creation of NBC and Fox, began privately testing its services yesterday.

Now, as much as I enjoy my YouTube interaction, I'm looking forward to the 90-some selection of tv shows (past and present) from NBC, Fox, and assortment of smaller broadcasters.  Also, with new partners, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Sony Pictures Television, Hulu skeptics may change their mind.

So, I think it's about time for me to get my "I Dream of Jeannie" fix, and here's to hoping more networks jump on so I can my "Salute Your Shorts" fix, too.

i'm the kind of G the little homies wanna be like

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting rapper Coolio, known for the 1995-hit "Gangsta's Paradise," will star in a reality series for the women's cable network Oxygen

The show will follow the rapper as he tries to balance his work life with his role as a single parent to six teenagers.

The series, titled "Coolio & the Gang," has been ordered for six half-hour episodes.

[Read the full article at the Hollywood Reporter here.]

Now, I don't know about you, but I'm starting to feel like it's time for us to party like it's 1999 again.  Coolio's back in the media.  The Backstreet Boys and the Spice Girls have reunited, and Britney Spears just released another album.  Now, give me a sec as I decorate my cubicle a la middle school locker style.

Kevorkian Coming to HBO

I know their slogan is its not TV its HBO, but this one is going to be quite interesting to say the least. There have been many interviews and news stories on the Doctor of Death, the infamous "60 minutes" interview  with Mike Wallace, and televised suicide which gave prosecutors all they needed to land Krikorian a prison sentence. Now after an 8 year prison term Krikorian is cooperating with HBO films to do a movie about his controversial practices.
This should keep my subscription going to HBO!
