  • Hank Azaria’s new show is cancelled

    We’re a few weeks into the new television season, which can only mean one thing — it’s time for the networks to start cutting under-performing shows. This means that Hank Azaria is out of at least one job. (His gig on The Simpsons is also not secure.) His new NBC comedy, Free Agents, has just…

  • Natasha Lyonne on New Girl

    Tuesday night’s episode of New Girl, the FOX comedy starring Zooey Deschanel, featured a very rarely seen actress in a guest role: Natasha Lyonne. Lyonne, who was born Natasha Braunstein and was raised in an Orthodox household, made her name in Slums of Beverly Hills and the American Pie films. However after the success of the…

  • The Coen brothers are coming to TV

    Ethan and Joel Coen, film auteurs best known for Fargo, No Country for Old Men and the very Semitic A Serious Man, are bringing their expertise to television.

  • And now on the men’s side…Jerry Bruckheimer, Steven Spielberg and Howard Stern are among Hollywood’s top male earners

    Hollywood has been kind to Jewish men this year, slightly more so than the women. After first place Forbes finisher Tyler Perry, Jerry Bruckheimer and Steven Spielberg appear in quick succession. The former made a large chunk of his money this year off the box office from the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie while…

  • Bethenny Frankel and Judge Judy make Forbes’ list of Hollywood’s highest paid women

    Forbes just released its list of highest paid women in entertainment and two Jews have cracked the top 10 — Bethenny Frankel of Real Housewives fame and Judge Judy Sheindlin. Frankel isn’t raking in the big bucks due to her Bravo paycheck. She comes in at number four on the list because of her Skinny…

  • Ben Stiller and Jason Sudeikis almost make it to first base

    In the promos for this week’s edition of SNL, host Ben Stiller and cast member Jason Sudeikis almost make out. Given the mocking of Stiller’s diminutive stature in one of the clips (he stands on a box until he is outed by Sudeikis), it’s safe to say that he would be the little spoon in…

  • JewTube: 2 Broke Girls, a thrift store and a Strokes t-shirt

    This week on 2 Broke Girls or as I like to call it “22 minutes of Brooklyn hipster cliches circa 2000″ (my fake title is possibly funnier than any joke on the show) the sassy gals visit a thrift store because Caroline needs to buy some affordable threads. Cue the totally predictable and unfunny jokes…

  • No Bacon in Footloose

    A remake of the 80s dance classic Footloose, which made Kevin Bacon a star, will not include the famous actor, who serves as the inspiration for this blog. Craig Brewer, director of the soon-to-be-released movie, approached Bacon about appearing in the new incarnation as Ren MacCormack’s deadbeat dad. Bacon, who originated the role of Ren,…

  • Arrested Development to return to the big and small screen

    My favorite dysfunctional Jewish family, the Bluths, will be returning to television. Yesterday the entire cast and series creator of Arrested Development, which went off the air five years ago, appeared at the New Yorker Festival where they announced that in addition to a feature length film, which will be released in 2013, a 10-episode…
