James Franco Talks General Hospital With Jay Leno


It's the guest spot that keeps on giving, at least in terms of free publicity. James Franco made an appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno Wednesday night, where the quirky, renaissance man (his new performance art project  involves 70's sitcom Three's Company) discussed how he managed to get him mom on General Hospital with him. Jay Leno also praises Franco for not being one of those "snobby actors" who disses TV. Watch the interview after the jump!


An Open Letter to Barbara Bloom




Dear Ms. Bloom,

On October 5, 2009, your network — CBS — will premiere a new version of the classic game show Let's Make a Deal as a replacement for the now canceled Guiding Light. To put it bluntly, I will not be watching.

You might be surprised by my reasons. Though in the grand scheme of things, you might not care. As a 44 year old Black man, I don't fit any demos that CBS or its advertisers care one whit about — though you ought to care about every viewer in these trying times for the networks. Nonetheless, you should know that I do not share the pitchfork & torches anger of the more vociferous Guiding Light's fans, who have vowed to never watch CBS daytime, or any show on the entire network, ever again.
