Jimmy Fallons’ Throwback Thursday – “Full House Reunion”

This skit is from one of Jimmy Fallon’s final “Late Night” shows, where the guys from Full House (Saget, Stamos, Joey) show up and help him make his decision to take over The Tonight Show. Two takeaways: John Stamos ages like a fine wine and Jimmy Fallon’s make believe bedroom is what nightmares are made of.

Bob Costas Might Actually Be Dying

Pull yourself together Costas! You’re scaring the children. I know he’s trying to soldier on here but it looks like he needs some serious medical treatment. How can he see the teleprompter? Somebody get him to a hospital ASAP. At this point, the only thing that could save Costas’s broadcast would be a double eye patch. They cure all ills.

Bob Costas Needs to Buy a Horse and Move to the Woods

Enough is enough with this guy. He thinks he’s king of the mountain because NBC blows him every time the Olympics comes around. So you’re telling me I have to stare at Bob Costas and his pillow fart face if I wanna root on the U S of A in the Olympics?

I’m no Communist so I’ll do it, but I’m not happy about it. Not one bit. I hope Bob Costas dies of gonorrhea and rots in hell.

Michelle & Jim Bob Duggar Would Be Terrible Dinner Guests

(Source) “After suffering a devastating miscarriage in December 2011, Michelle Duggar is trying to get pregnant again with her 20th child. The 19 Kids and Counting reality TV mom says she and husband Jim Bob Duggar are hoping to be “blessed” with another pregnancy.

“I would hope, but we are not expecting right now,” Michelle, 47, shares in a new interview with Celebrity Baby Scoop. “I would be so grateful if the Lord blessed us with another one. We’re trying at this point and we shall see if that is a possibility. If not, we are so thankful and grateful for the ones that God has given us so far. We are also definitely enjoying our grandbabies! They are so precious!”

Michelle and Jim Bob, 48, are already parents to 19 children with names all starting with “J,” and have three grandchildren: Their oldest son Josh, 25, is a father of three with wife Anna: Mackynzie, 4, Michael, 2, and Marcus, 4 months.

In an interview with the TODAY show in April, Michelle and Jim Bob, married 29 years, said they have considered adopting their 20th child. “We’re praying about if the Lord would want us to adopt,” Michelle said. Jim Bob added, “We have set up our home to be designed for taking care of children. We love children, and we really believe every child is a special gift from God.”

Michelle Duggar "Trying" to Get Pregnant With 20th Child

These two are clearly insane. 20 kids in this or day and age just doesn’t make sense to me. You’re bound to neglect at least 12 of them. Putting the 20 kids aside, Jim Bob (hilarious name) and Michelle are now at the top of my list for world’s worst dinner guests. If you invite these two over they’re going to talk about one of two things: Jesus, or their kids. The first hour and a half would be spent looking at pictures of their kids, while the rest of the evening would be spent praising Jesus for the beautiful food you’re about to eat. I’ve seen their show. I’m not proud of it, but when you want to write about someone sometimes you have to make sacrifices. All they do is sit on various park benches and kiss each other. It makes me feel awkward, and I’m watching it through a television screen. You’ve have to witness the worst, most awkward type of PDA, and there is not enough wine in the world for having to see that in person. My advice to Jim Bob and Michelle: cut back on the 20th kid talk and get with the times. Whatever you do, don’t ever change your name, Jim Bob.

“Better Call Saul” Will Fill Our Breaking Bad Void

(Source) “The PR department at AMC just sent out the following brief statement:

AMC and Sony Pictures Television confirmed today that they have reached a licensing agreement for a spinoff of Vince Gilligan’s landmark AMC/SPT series Breaking Bad. As conceived, the new series is based on the show’s popular Saul Goodman character with the working title Better Call Saul. Plans call for Saul to be a one-hour prequel that will focus on the evolution of the popular Saul Goodman character before he ever became Walter White’s lawyer.

Perhaps after someone writes a script they’ll all decide that this is a bad idea. Or maybe they’ll shoot a pilot and decide they don’t like it. But if nothing else this means that a bunch of creative people are going to try to make this show.

Rumors of a Saul-centric series have been going around for a while; back in April, June Thomas made the case here on Brow Beat that such a show was probably a bad idea, given that the sketchy lawyer archetype, while “a wonderfully adaptable supporting character,” is probably not “substantial enough to sustain a whole show.”

I tend to agree. But I’m still curious to find out. And the prequel route seems like the way to go; for one thing, it means we still don’t know whether Saul Goodman will make it to the end of Breaking Bad alive. And even if he does, I can only assume he’d want to follow up the Walter White saga with some peace and quiet. Better to see how he ended up in the dubious place he had reached when Walt first found him.

Update: Variety confirms that Bob Odenkirk will star in the series (in case you feared that AMC would try to cast a younger actor in the role of the youthful Goodman) and that Peter Gould, a writer and producer who has worked on all five seasons of Breaking Bad, will be “spearheading the project.”

It must be Breaking Bad Thursday. Awesome news from AMC and Vince Gilligan, as everybody’s favorite crooked lawyer is getting his own well deserved spinoff. Details are obviously still sketchy, but many believe (including the article above) it could be a prequel to Saul’s days before Heisenberg.
