McCain: Snooki might be too good-looking for jail

If one more politician brings up Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi,  some reality show producer is going to get the bright idea to have her run for mayor of Wasilla instead of Levi Johnston.

The latest politico discussing the recently incarcerated "Jersey Shore" star was Arizona Senator John McCain, who casually brought her up during a visit to Phoenix, Arizona radio station KMLE Country 108.

“I have a question for you that I thought about on the way over: Should Snooki go to jail? Or - a question for our listeners - is Snooki too good-looking to go to jail,” McCain queried. “This has given a whole new meaning to our justice system, and I’m kind of leaning towards Snooki being too good-looking.”

CoCo's TBS promo one for comedy fans

CoCo's TBS promo one for comedy fans

Can you judge a TV show by its promo? Maybe not, but we can try.

The latest promotion for Conan O’Brien’s late-night show on TBS pays homage to Terry Gilliam’s “Monty Python” animations, although DeadlineHollywood thinks it's also a little reminiscent of a Peter Gabriel music video. [TBS, like CNN, is owned by Time Warner.]

Obviously, one can’t glean what a an entire program will be like from an 11-second ad spot, but fingers are crossed that this nod to comedy fans everywhere bodes well. CinemaBlend, for one, is hoping that this shows that O’Brien will have more room to flex his creativity than he did before. Or, as they note, perhaps he's just really into "Monty Python."

Regardless, it's all still speculation – we don't even know what O'Brien has planned for the opening night. What we do know is that the show will premiere on November 8. Does the trailer give you increased hope for CoCo's show, or are you waiting to see it before indulging in the hype?

Two new additions to 'The Colony'

Two new additions to 'The Colony'

This week’s episode of “The Colony" started off with everyone complaining about how dirty they were. This was immediately overshadowed by the fact that Jim, who apparently had regressed to age 4, stated that they needed to get rid of all the “doo-doo” in the port-a-potty.

Still reeling from the shock that a grown man would say "doo-doo" on TV, viewers had to watch as the colonists poured out all the contents of their port-a-potty. Thankfully, television treats fecal matter the same way it treats boobs, and it was blurred out.

Sustenance is still an issue for the colonists, especially since they made one week of food last for two. They’ve lost a lot of weight and are feeling hungry all the time, and viewers are even given a run-down of how much weight each colonist has lost, ranging from two to almost twenty pounds.

Who will win 'SYTYCD' (Why not ask the host)?

Who will win 'SYTYCD' (Why not ask the host)?

It's certainly been an unusual season for "So You Think You Can Dance." We've had all-stars, injuries and a fair share of controversy. It all comes to an end on Thursday night, but who will win?

Host Cat Deeley was asked that very question, when she spoke to reporters this week.

"I think it could be any one of the three," she said. "If I was a betting woman and I had to put some money where my mouth is, I would probably go for Kent, but that's nothing to do with his technical ability. It's more to do with the reaction that I see from the screaming girls in the studio. I mean it's literally like Beatle-mania when he hits the stage."

Add one more name to the list of celebs who want to take a seat at the “American Idol” judging table: Mariah Carey.

Carey’s husband, Nick Cannon, said during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that his wife has dropped that idea into their conversation before.

“She talks about it,” Cannon said. “She says, ‘I would love to do that.’”

'Pretty Little Liars' ends with a... crash

Things I learned from the mid-season finale of “Pretty Little Liars,” in no particular order:

  • “Glamping” is camping with hair accessories and matching jumpsuits.
  • Stealing money is OK, as long as you steal it from the old woman who snatched all your butterscotch candies.
  • Alison is was a pretty little liar.

As the mid-season finale opened, the girls noticed a familiar face at school. It was Melissa’s ex-boyfriend Ian – also known as the kid from the 1999 Disney original movie “Smart House,” among other things. Looks like we’re going to be seeing a lot more of Ian – he’s the school’s new field hockey coach.
