Entertainment Link-Off: Another One Bites the Dust

jamie chung 1This weekend at the box office is the battle of the eye candy (and maybe slasher flicks). First we have Kate Beckinsale starring in the Antarctic murder mystery Whiteout. Next up there’s Sorority Row, the remake of the 1983 horror movie The House on Sorority Row. Expect to see plenty of attractive ladies get chased and hacked by a hooded killer.

CW Cancels Sunday Primetime Programming?

TV NEW SEASON CWNormally I would post a picture of someone for eye-candy purposes, but I’m doing things a little different today. The picture on the right is Dawn Ostroff, the head honcho of The CW right now. Why is there a picture of her? Well I want you to recognize the person that’s currently running a network to the ground! Yes, if you want a definition of epic fail when it comes to running a television network, look no further, she’s right there.

After a disasterous attempt to boost ratings by letting Media Rights Capital create primetime shows on Sunday night, the CW has decided to give up its Sunday lineup and focus on the five weeknights instead. Continue reading
