Mark Burnett's The Bible is under some serious fire because evidently the actor playing Satan is considered by many to be a dead ringer for President Barack Obama.  According to Burnett, “[t]his is utter nonsense. The actor who played Satan, Mehdi Ouzaani, is a highly acclaimed Moroccan actor. He has previously played parts in several Biblical epics — including Satanic characters long before Barack Obama was elected as our President.”  I couldn't care less, but see for yourself here.

I'm really not sure how I missed this one but VH1's premiere of Wicked Single came and went without much fanfare.  I haven't yet watched the show, but shockingly, it's not being well received by critics!  According to the Daily News“'WICKED Single' could have been called “Jersey Shore North,” except in the end it’s sad enough that even fans of rowdy, profane twentysomethings may find this party not so much fun."  Not surprisingly, the Boston Globe wasn't as hard on this sure fire debacle: "So thank you, VH1, for throwing these people together for a few lessons in life, love, and vodka. So what if their Boston accents aren’t nearly perfect. Team Boston appreciates your effort."

Did I read this right?  Lisa Vanderpump's dog Giggy danced last night on Dancing With The Stars? Can we shut this thing down already?  Evidently Giggy has 65,512 followers on Twitter.  I'm moving to Mexico.  The early front runners, for those keeping score are . . . . the athletes!  Jacoby Jones, Dorothy Hamill and Aly Raisman will be 3 of the last 5 dancing.  

Don't forget to tune into the premiere of Splash tonight on ABC at 8:00 PM ET.  The first five contestants will hit the water and I promise you, you will not be disappointed.  I will be back on set tonight for the taping of episode 3.
