Comedian Lewis Black Looks At Media Coverage Of Whitney Houston’s Death

So we all heard the bad puns the media said covering Whitney Houston's death.  "She can no longer have the greatest love of all" or "she can longer say she will always love you" and we rolled our eyes. Lewis Black remembers and takes them to task.

We have missed "Back In Black" on "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" and it returned last night with a vengeance.

Going after Nancy Grace for assuming someone drowned Whitney when no one knew and other media people jumping to conclusions.

We know the media sensationalize everything and Whitney was no exception.  Check out Lewis Black setting them straight on it.-DocFB

Warner Bros. Television unleashed the new promotional photo for 2 And A Half Men, now starring Ashton Kutcher and replacing Charlie Sheen.  All will be revealed September 19th 2011, the day of the season premiere.  It's also the say for something for Charlie.

Comedy Central's Roast Of Charlie Sheen will take place that night as well on Comedy Central.  It's another plan to out-do each other it seems.  Sheen just announced his return to television in "Anger Management" yesterday and now the promotional poster for "Men" is released today.

In all honesty, it's "winning" for the fans as competition will bring out the best in Sheen and producer Chuck Lorre to outdo one another.  So far, it seems Ashton is up to the challenge to replace Sheen and still keep the show funny.  We will see for sure this fall.-Dr.FB

We are sure Comedy Central knows what they are doing.  The same night Ashton Kutcher will be replacing Charlie Sheen on "2 And A Half Men", the Roast of Charlie Sheen will be on.

Although it will not be on at the same time, it is going to cause some pretty high ratings, which it would have had anyway. 

So, will you watch both on September 19th when they air?-Dr.FB

Oh Boy! Charlie Sheen To Be Roasted By Comedy Central

Charlie Sheen

We wonder when Charlie Sheen was asked if he wanted to get roasted, if he thought it was smoking weed with James Franco and Justin Timberlake.  If so, he is in trouble.

It was announced this morning that the next person to be roasted after Donald Trump on Comedy Central will be Charlie Sheen.  There are going to be quite a few "Duh, winning" and tiger blood jokes.

The special will tape September 10th an air September 19th. 

Charlie had this to say about the roast;   “You could say I’ve been providing kindling for this roast for a while, it’s time to light it up. It’s going to be epic.”

This comes on the heels that Charlie admitted to taking steroids for his role in the 80's movie "Major League" to improve his fastball.  Yep, that's why he did it.-Dr.FB

I think I am the only one not surprised by this.  Ratings for the 11 P.M. hour of cable were released and Chelsea Handler's "Chelsea Lately" show is beating the "Conan O'Brien" show soundly.

The ratings show Chelsea with over a 100,000 more viewers on a nightly basis than Conan.  For those at Conan watching the ratings, they did see Chelsea creeping up on them, but no changes were made.
