Kennedy Center Honors
In the first 35 years of the Kennedy Center Honors, only two Latinos got medals. Now there are two this year alone. Carlos Santana and opera singer Martina Arroyo. Rita Moreno says the Kennedy Center was obviously influenced by protesters who complained that Latinos were being ignored. She says the people who make the decisions understood that "they better get off their tushies and do something." Also being honored Sunday night will be Billy Joel, Shirley MacLaine and Herbie Hancock.
Each team has a one in four chance of winning the million bucks this Sunday on "The Amazing Race." The finale starts in Tokyo, where they take part in a human bowling competition and strip for a phone call at the bottom of a giant fish bowl. They'll finish in Alaska. The four remaining teams are Jason and his girlfriend Amy, Leo and his cousin Jamal, the married ER doctors, Nicole and Travis and the exes Reebs and Timothy.
"Inside Llewyn Davis" - Oscar Isaac
"Inside Llewyn Davis" is Oscar Isaac's first starring movie role and he says he was ready for it. Isaac says he had been working himself up to being a leading man by taking supporting parts in other movies. So when he got to the set, he didn't feel any pressure. It didn't hurt that he already was a singer and guitarist. Inside Llewyn Davis opens today in New York and Los Angeles.
Carrie Underwood-"Sound Of Music Live!"
The tube was live, with "The Sound of Music" last night. Carrie Underwood starred in NBC's live production of the musical. Underwood played Maria, while Stephen Moyer from "True Blood" was Captain Von Trapp. It came off without a hitch. But some might find fault with Underwood's acting ability. The TV production was a staging of the Broadway version, not a video remake of the movie. And the TV version was produced not far from Broadway. The production was done at the massive Grumman Studios on New York's Long Island.
Bigfoot Reality Show
No one's found Bigfoot yet, so maybe a $10 million-dollar prize will give people more incentive. A reality show called "10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty" will air on Spike TV. Dean Cain will host the show that premieres January 10. Nine teams of "lifelong Bigfoot hunters" and big game hunters will be searching for Sasquatch. The $10 million prize would be the biggest in TV history.
Christina Aguilera To Perform On Tuesday's "Voice"
Christina Aguilera will sing her song from "Catching Fire" on the Tuesday episode of "The Voice." Aguilera wrote "We Remain" with Ryan Tedder of One Republic, who's now the show's in-house producer. Previous winners Cassadee Pope and Danielle Bradbury and finalists the Swon Brothers and Michelle Chamuel will also sing.
Billy Crystal's "700 Sundays" To Be On HBO
Billy Crystal's autobiographical one-man show is coming to HBO. They'll tape his performances of "700 Sundays" on January 3 and 4. The special will air later in the year.
"Soul Man" Renewed
Cedric "The Entertainer" still has soul. TV Land has renewed "The Soul Man" for a third season. Niecy Nash and Wesley Jonathan will be back for the eight new episodes that will premiere in the spring.
