Hank Jr. May or May Not Be Back on "Monday Night Football"
We still don't know if Hank Williams, Jr.'s "Monday Night Football" theme will be played before Monday's game between the Bears and the Lions. ESPN hasn't indicated whether or not they will drop the song like they did last week after Hank's inflammatory statements on Fox News Channel.
"The Playboy Club" May Not Be Dead After All
Yesterday we told you the first cancellation of the fall season was "The Playboy Club." NBC took the show off the air after only three episodes due to low ratings. Now we hear that the show is continuing to film, because the network may try to sell it to another network. That's just fine with Hugh Hefner. He says the show should never have been on network anyway and should have been on cable. Meanwhile the star of the show, Eddie Cibrian, is recovering from an injury to his heel suffered during filming.
And Because Hollywood Has No New Ideas...
Here we go again. Hollywood is turing yet another TV show into a film. This time it's "Perry Mason" which was a popular book series before it was a popular TV show starring Raymond Burr. "Thompson on Hollywood" reports Robert Downey, Jr. may play the lead character in the film that would be set in the 1930's.
