I had a 2 hour commute last night...BRUTAL...got home JUST in time to see the last out in my son's first ever No-Hitter. Didn't get home home until after 8pm. I checked out DL Hughley on Live Kelly (no with) He did a great job yesterday as Kelly Ripa's cohost but he's no Anderson, Fred or NPH. I was shocked to learn that he has a 29 year old daughter. I thought he was like 40, he looks damn good for 53. 

-Angie Tribeca was back with two episodes and some big time cameos including James Franco and Jon Hamm. Not sure if Jere Burns had some major Botox or what but he looks weirder than normal which actually works with this wacky show. The writers have amped Angie up for Season 2. Season 1 was Airplane on steroids. Season 2...the steroids are on steroids. Funnier bits that I'll never do justice in this blog. Angie isn't Must See TV but if you're just looking for a new kind of funny, this could be your thing. In between the Yankees (who won) and Unreal, this was a fun 30 minute break.

Unreal is back and talk about amping things up. Rachel and Quinn are out of their minds, Chet's lost 50 pounds and declared war and this season, our Bachelor is the first African American suitor who happens to be an NFL quarterback in need of a major PR makeover. Rachel's still not sleeping or bathing but now she and Quinn have matching wrist tattoos and she is THE showrunner...sort of. The nastiness has been dialed up big time. If you didn't get on the bandwagon for the first season, you really...REALLY need to get on it for this one. I sense controversy, both on and off screen. The writers and producers are pushing boundaries all over the place already. Just tune in...seriously. This will guarantee you a fun Summer. Even the guys will enjoy all these hot women in bikinis, I promise.

It's a huge week for James Corden and James Corden fans who I still take credit for. James was on Howard Stern yesterday, then Stephen Colbert, then the premiere of a new edition of Carpool Karaoke. He'll also appear on Seth Meyers this week and then of course he's hosting the Tony's on Sunday night. I'm not a huge Broadway person. Even if you aren't, this edition of Carpool Karaoke will give you chills. Something about a bunch of incredible voices coming together in a Range Rover that gives you that special feeling. I know my Mom is gonna love this one! Enjoy guys! 

-Hulu cancelled Deadbeat after 3 seasons. The guy in it, Tyler Labine, was also in another cool show called Reaper. I love this guy but he can't seem to break out and make it as big as I think he should. The guy is funny and needs a better agent or manager or something. He should be in a hit show. Maybe the new Kevin James show could use him? He really needs something bigger.

-NBC's promoting the hell out of Obama being on Fallon for the first time this Thursday but Obama has been on before. He slow jammed the news with Jimmy a while ago and did a decent job. Of course the king of the slow jam is really Brian Williams. Jimmy should get a pair of balls and have Brian back on for a slow jam and some time on the couch. 

-Did anyone see Paul, Verizon's "Can You Hear Me Now" guy in the new Sprint spots? Great move, Sprint. I wanted Verizon to dust Paul off and bring him back a while ago, but I have nothing to do with creative. If you have no idea what I'm talking about...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mBk-mdAjAF8
