Thinking about Friday, it might be the end of the week, but there is plenty of great television shows remaining for the weekend. The World Series is over and Thanksgiving is a few weeks off, so this means we can get back to our regularly scheduled programs. Yep, viewers can once again relax as there shouldn’t be too many things bumping the television schedules around. Just remember to shut off your cell phone so you don’t have to go out (if you don’t want to.)
Will & Grace fans say goodbye to a character
On Friday morning the sad sounds of tears and sniffles are still being heard from some viewers. The surprise death of a Will & Grace character pretty much sideswiped the fans of the show, leaving people speechless. When the fans realized that Rosario Inés Consuelo Yolanda Salazar was getting a farewell send off, it was a bittersweet moment on Thursday night that had people in tears. What has to be a big surprise is how this special episode didn’t have any leaks before it aired. Not only was the farewell kept under tight wraps, it wasn’t until the very end of the episode before people shared their grief of her character being gone forever.
Ellen’s best scare ever: Kerry Washington
If you watch The Ellen Show, you know that Ellen likes to bring a little fright to her guests. Sometimes someone sneaks up behind a star and other times people jump out. This week the victim (who was a really good sport) was Kerry Washington. Playing a game for charity, the Scandal star sat at a table facing Ellen, and did her best to answer questions. Then the best scare E-V-E-R. A creature popped out of the middle of the table in a wickedly delightful way. It surprised Kerry and the audience. Watching the video of the moment will even have you jumping out of your skin at home. I was so surprised I spilled my coffee everywhere. Well done Ellen!
Jennifer Lawrence on Jimmy Kimmy Live!
Jennifer Lawrence took the guest hosting reins for Jimmy Kimmy Live! on Thursday night to the joy of the viewers. Another unique star who gave the hosting gig her own style and moxie, the evening had fans wishing it wouldn’t come to an end. Stepping outside to interview normal people walking Hollywood Boulevard (well, as normal as one can expect) the star didn’t find many people who could name all her movies, but they did know her. The shock on their faces when meeting the star was quite hilarious. All of Jimmy Kimmel’s guest hosts this week were quite charming and did an amazing job of making the show fun. Which leaves us wondering why the other late night hosts don’t have guest hosts too? Maybe fans should start a social media campaign surrounding late night hosting and call it “Share the Chair”.
