A ‘Voice’ original is giving up his spinning chair. CeeLo Green tells Ellen DeGeneres that he won’t be returning to NBC’s hit singing competition in an interview that can be seen Wednesday on her talk show.
CeeLo is a talented person but I am not crazy about him as a person. I think this is a good situation for the voice to plug in someone who has more universal appeal. My wife suggested Farrell Williams who is hot right now and is wearing a big hat.
Last night was the first Tonight Show of the Jimmy Fallon era and it was great. The show was heart-felt, funny, sentimental and star-studded. Will Smith and U2 were a great choice for the first show. The History of Hip Hop Dance was hilarious, the rooftop performance by U2 was an amazing showcase for the return to NYC. The $100 gag with all those famous people was something to behold. Jimmy Fallon is going to carry the torch of this late night institution with class and in the same style of Johnny Carson who started his run in the same studio Fallon calls home today. I am in your corner Jimmy. Great work.
Nations from around the world will go for the gold in Sochi, Russia. It promises to be a very interesting Olympics considering the troubles that have already been reported. The threat of terror is looming over these games as well. Whatever country you are supporting may all the competitors do their best to represent the ideals of fair competition and sportsmanship.
NBC has been home to both Summer and Winter games for a couple of decades now and they will preempt their schedule for two weeks so they can bring you coverage of the games. You can also check out MSNBC, CNBC and NBC Sports Network for expanded coverage. Their prime-time coverage begins tonight at 8pm Eastern.
TV viewers should expect a lot of reruns on other networks because it’s customary to not burn new episodes during an Olympics year. So you can choose to watch the games or catch up on episodes you missed.
