CICELY TYSON’s autobiography, “Just as I Am” just came out on Tuesday . . . and Cicely passed away yesterday.  She was 96 years old. Cecily received an Oscar nomination for the 1972 film “Sounder”.  In 1974 she became the first African American to win a lead actress Emmy for “The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman”. In 2013, she won a Tony for “A Trip to Bountiful”. . . and she received an honorary Oscar in 2018. She also starred as Coretta Scott King in the 1978 miniseries “King”. . . Harriet Tubman in the 1978 series “A Woman Called Moses”. . . Kunta Kinte’s mother in “Roots”. . . and Rosa Parks’ mother in a 2002 CBS movie. Cicely was just interviewed Wednesday for “Live with Kelly and Ryan”.  It’ll air on today’s show. 

Armie Hammer has left another project because of all his personal stuff coming out. Its called The Offer, a Paramount+ series about the making of The Godfather. He already left a film project with Jennifer Lopez called Shotgun Wedding. Josh Duhamel may take his place there. 

Pamela Anderson has been married this time for about a month. How you think it is going? Remember HER story of being “right where she needs to be”…Apparently, Dan her new husband wasn’t her bodyguard…at first. He was a handyman on her property and was in a relationship with another woman.  Dan’s heartbroken ex Carey, who had been living with him and bringing up his two children for the past five years, has told how she was blindsided by the affair and knew nothing of their marriage until she read about it online. She said they, Pam and Dan, started getting close early last year — while she and Dan were still together — before he finally moved out of their shared home and into Pam’s in July. Carey, 42, said: “This is not the lockdown love story which is being portrayed, it’s all a facade. “I decided to speak out because I want people to know that my almost five-year relationship, with three children involved, ended because of the affair Pam and Dan started while he was still with me. She never mentions being married but they lived together for 5 years.  He started work there in early autumn 2019, soon complaining to Carey about how “crazy” Pamela was and how difficult and demanding she was to work for. In one text he wrote: “The dragon has been released! Talking about Pam.” In January 2020, Pamela “married” film producer Jon Peters before splitting with him two weeks later, claiming it was never a real wedding. He texted, ‘Hahaha he’s older than her dad, but I think our money issues are over’, which he meant because the guy is rich. Then Covid and  “Dan would stay at her house and not come home, and here I am taking care of the kids.” More text messages… ‘Carey, I love you. I don’t know what is going on right now. I’m not in my right head right now. I’m not in a good space’. Then last July he moved out of the home he shared with Carey and moved in with Pam. She claims he and Pam behave like teenagers, and said: “When he turned 40 last year she bought him a boat. “He’s smashed her car three times now, and her boat twice. It’s a walking mess. They sit on their property drinking — it’s like the Dan and Pam show.” Pam claims she and Dan had the blessing of all their family and friends for their wedding, but Carey disputes this, saying: “No one was invited to the wedding. “He texted his mum the night before the ceremony and he said, ‘I’m getting married tomorrow, keep this on the DL and don’t say anything’. 

As you know from ALL the commercials, THE WEEKND will be headlining the Super Bowl halftime show . . . and it sounds like it’ll be different this year, since the stadium will only be about one-third full. His team says that it will be a “cinematic experience,” and that The Weeknd has pumped $7 million of his own money into it . . . to, quote, “make [it] be what he envisioned.” By the way, “Billboard initially claimed that the show was going to be TWICE as long as normal, but later issued a correction, saying that it would be roughly “12 to 13 minutes long,” like every year.   

Wednesday night’s “Jeopardy” contestants were roasted after they didn’t know Dave Chappelle. During Double Jeopardy, a picture of Chappelle was shown with this clue; “This comedian displayed his drama chops in ‘A Star Is Born’, playing Bradley Cooper’s longtime friend.” No one knew the answer. Temporary “Jeopardy” host Ken Jennings was stunned. Social media lit up the contestants. One person tweeted, “All that three adult humans had to do on Jeopardy was identify a picture of Dave Chappelle to get the question correct. None could do it. What?” 

“Cheaper by the Dozen” is getting a remake with ZACH BRAFF and GABRIELLE UNION as a couple with 12 kids, who have to balance their crazy home life with managing a family business. The version you’re probably familiar with came out in 2003, and starred STEVE MARTIN and BONNIE HUNT as the parents. It also featured Hilary Duff, Ashton Kutcher, Piper Perabo, and Tom Welling.  There was a sequel in 2005. But the ORIGINAL version came out in 1950, and it was based on the true story of the Gilbreth family of Montclair, New Jersey.

“Thelma & Louise” was such a hit that the studio wanted a sequel.  And apparently it didn’t matter that both title characters DIED at the end of the original. On the “Tonight Show” this week, SUSAN SARANDON said she turned down a “big check” to do another one.  

There’s a new “Buck Rogers” series in the works, and GEORGE CLOONEY just signed on as a producer and may STAR in it. Buck Rogers made his debut in a 1928 as a guy who falls into suspended animation after a cave-in and wakes up 500 years into the future. The character was famously revived for the ’70s series “Buck Rogers in the 25th Century”, starring GIL GERARD and ERIN GRAY . . . not to mention their robot sidekick Twiki.

The U.S. Navy Band turned Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” into a sea shanty. 

A British group did a sea shanty version of Nickelback’s “Rockstar,” and when the band found out, they added their own vocals on it 

A new study of 2,000 Americans revealed 60 percent said they’ve watched more films in 2020 than any other year in their life. Six in 10 Americans said staying at home more often during COVID has turned them into a “total film buff,”. Moreover, 55 percent said the awards season postponement will actually allow them to see more eligible films than they ever have before. The survey also revealed a burgeoning trend: “virtual movie nights,” in which people watch a film with friends and family while video chatting. The average respondent plans to host eight such events this winter. Commissioned by the Popcorn Board the survey also examined the key components of their ideal movie night. When asked which components respondents felt were absolutely essential for the perfect movie night, chocolate (37 percent) and cozy blankets (46 percent) were key contenders. The winner of the award for most popular movie night “must,” however, was popcorn (51 percent). Top genres Americans have found themselves gravitating toward more often since the start of the pandemic included comedy (40 percent), action (40 percent) and drama (31 percent). Additionally, 63 percent of respondents said the pandemic has given them an excuse to watch the “classic” films they’ve always meant to see.

Here is your first teaser trailer and yes I am talking to you Tony. Gordon Bombay in the Mighty Ducks: Game Changers trailer. 10 episode series on Disney+.  That was Lauren Graham who decides to start her own hockey team after her son Evan gets cut from the ultra-competitive Mighty Ducks youth team. 

I found a list of tv characters that left shows with really no or not much explanation 

Coco, The Golden Girls 

Did you know that Dorothy, Blanche, Rose and Sophia had a flamboyant live-in housekeeper named Coco, played by Charles Levin, in the pilot. It would’ve been groundbreaking to have a gay character as part of the main cast, but Estelle Getty’s Sophia turned out to be such a breakout character — she was only meant to be recurring — that she bumped Coco out, and we never heard from him or his enchiladas again after the premiere.

Chuck Cunningham, Happy Days 

The poster child for TV’s Suddenly Missing Characters, Richie and Joanie’s older brother was played in Season 1 by Gavan O’Herlihy, though recast Randolph Roberts was on hand for Chuck’s final appearance in the Season 2 premiere. Though the show established he was off to college, Chuck was never heard from again. In fact, the Season 11 episode featuring Joanie’s wedding to Chachi saw Howard noting in his toast, “Both of our children are married now,” effectively erasing the existence of his and Marion’s eldest. 

Ben Geller, Friends 

We saw Ross’ son enter the world as a baby in Season 1 and watched him grow into an inquisitive tyke played by future Riverdale star Cole Sprouse. But he was mystifyingly written out of the show as soon as Rachel gave birth to Ross’ daughter Emma — to the point that Ross’ father claimed that Emma was his first grandchild! Rude! 

Billie Young, Night Court 

We remember Markie Post as public defender Christine Sullivan. But before Post joined the cast full-time in Season 3, Billie Young (played by Ellen Foley) was the show’s main defense attorney — and love interest for Harry Anderson’s Judge Harry Stone. Producers found their chemistry lacking, though, and when Post became available after her contract with The Fall Guy ended, Billie’s stint on Night Court was summarily dismissed. 

Tina Pinciotti, That ’70s Show 

You may have entirely forgotten that in just one single episode, Donna Pinciotti had a younger sister. Tina’s sole appearance was in the Season 1 episode “Eric’s Burger Job,” but her intended recurring role was permanently deleted afterward. No explanation was given — as evidenced by Kitty referring to Donna as Bob and Midge’s only child in Season 7. 

Maggie, A Different World 

 The Cosby Show spinoff got completely revamped after its freshman season, with star Lisa Bonet leaving after she became pregnant and eventually returning to Cosby. Dwayne Wayne and Whitley survived the purge, but lost in the shuffle was Denise’s friend and roommate Maggie, played by future Oscar winner Marisa Tomei. Let’s just hope she got her diploma from Hillman at some point. 

Jerry and Andy, Roseanne/The Conners 

Roseanne and Dan’s fourth child was said to be on a cargo boat in Alaska when Roseanne was revived in 2018, but didn’t return when Mom died in The Conners . Meanwhile, the powers that be made the “conscious decision” that Jackie’s son Andy never actually existed, and was “part of the dream that was revealed at the end of the original Roseanne,” even if that makes little to no sense. 

Billy, Who’s the Boss? 

Like many an ’80s sitcom, Who’s the Boss? brought in a cute kid late in its run to up the “aw” factor, and so five-year-old munchkin Billy came to live with the Bowers in Season 7 when Tony’s grandma left the boy in Tony’s care. The cuteness wore off quickly, though: Billy didn’t return for Season 8, with the show explaining that he went back to live with Tony’s grandma. 

Roscoe Baxter and Candace, Mom

When we last saw Christy’s son, he was 12 years old and already experimenting with drugs. It’s unclear whether  Christy’s ex Baxter and his fiancé Candace — who also vanished — nipped that in the bud, or whether Christy — who’s now off at law school — continued to play an active role in her son’s life. 

Richie Iannucci, The King of Queens 

Richie was one of Doug’s three best friends — and perhaps his oldest friend, having attended the same high school and shared an apartment before either of them was married. But come Season 3, portrayer Larry Romano was offered a bigger role on another sitcom — NBC’s short-lived Kristin Chenoweth vehicle Kristin — and he took it. Richie vanished, and Doug was never called “Moose” again.

Today’s birthday girl has been destroyed in 93 fine films…including:

– 50 To 1

Last night the NHL announced that the game between the Blues and the Golden Knights had been postponed due to safety concerns involving the coronavirus.  According to multiple sources, Alex Pietrangelo – along with ANOTHER Vegas coach – tested positive for the virus.  That’s on top of almost the entire Vegas coaching staff who sat out the previous game between the two because of an exposure.  The game will be made up at a different date and time if necessary.  The next game for the Blues is a game against the Ducks in Anaheim on Saturday night at 8PM.

The Cardinals have agreed to a deal that brings back Adam Wainwright. The Cardinals’ offer to Wainwright was a one-year contract, but they moved to improve it in the past week as Wainwright began listening to other offers. MLB Network insider Jon Heyman reported the deal is worth $8 million. Wainwright was the Cardinals’ most reliable pitcher in 2020, throwing two shutouts and posting a 3.15 ERA in his 15th season with the club.

Nolan Arenado may be on his way out of Colorado. Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reported Thursday that the St. Louis Cardinals are “in discussions with the Rockies” about the third baseman, though “no deal appears close.”  The 29-year-old is entering his ninth year in the league.

After an embarrassing Wild Card loss to Cleveland, many think the Steelers need to push quarterback Ben Roethlisberger into retirement. Even a former Steelers player believes it’s time for Big Ben to go; Ike Turner, who won two Super Bowls with Roethlisberger. Turner said “100%. Number seven’s done enough  – for me it’s the mobility part.” But even Taylor knows that Roethlisberger isn’t going to retire and the Steelers franchise won’t cut him, adding “They’re gonna let Ben rock out until he wants to rock out. You know the Steelers, they’re loyal.”

The Carolina Panthers are reportedly “going to be aggressive” in pursuing Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson this offseason. He also reported Watson requested a trade out of Houston, months after signing a four-year, $156 million contract extension. The Panthers looked to sixth-year quarterback Teddy Bridgewater under center this season. Bridgewater finished the year with 15 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.  Watson collected a league-leading 4,823 yards with 33 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Mizzou will look to bounce back from its loss against Auburn as they take on TCU in Columbia tomorrow at 1PM.  SLU also looking to rebound as they take on Richmond on the road tonight at 5:30PM.  And 19th Illinois will take on 7th ranked Iowa tonight at 8PM.

After his leaving the octagon bloodied after a loss to Dustin Poirier, Conor McGregor has dropped out of the UFC’s lightweight rankings, barely hanging on to the 15th spot. Poirier’s currently ranked seventh. Now that McGregor and Poirier are 1 and 1, the Irish fighter’s coach says McGregor wants a trilogy match to settle the score. There’s also word that boxer Manny Pacquiao is no longer interested in a crossover fight with McGregor.  He believes that after McGregor’s loss, the demand for a match isn’t there anymore.

Tim Donaghy made his professional wrestling debut on Wednesday night, playing the role of the crooked referee. During the main event of Major League Wrestling’s Fusion, Donaghy—the former NBA official who pleaded guilty to two federal charges related to gambling in August 2007—played the role of a corrupt official. He prevented longtime fan favorite Savio Vega from winning a Caribbean Strap match against Richard Holliday, instead taking advantage of his position and helping Holliday to victory. Before the show went off the air, Donaghy remarked that he called the bout as fairly as he did while on the court in the NBA, no differently than the way he officiated games between the Lakers and Kings.
