Feb 16, 2018

Hey Clinkers, Happy Valentine's Week! To continue the lovefest, we want to know who is your TV crush? Could be a celebrity ... or even the character they played. Inquiring minds want to know ...

This episode finds Aaron a bit loopy after a long day doing some bizarre background acting on a Disney Channel TV show. He was pelted with yogurt and ended up dressing as a Mexican Wrestler. So basically, he's sleep-deprived and drinking. Welcome to CrazyTown!


  • Ryan Murphy is moving from 20th Century Fox to Netflix. His new five-year deal will pay the man $300-million dollars and goes into effect July 1st. Murphy will continue to serve as an exec producer on FX's "American Horror Story," "American Crime Story," "Feud," "Pose" and Fox's "911."
  • In its first three days, "The Cloverfield Paradox" had 2.8 million viewers — which is one-fourth the size of the audience for "Bright," which brought in roughly 11-million dollars in its first three days on the platform.
  • "The Daily Show's" Michelle Wolf — basically the best correspondent on "The Daily Show" during the Trevor Noah years — has signed on for her own late-night show on Netflix. It'll premiere later this year.
  • "New Girl's" Hannah Simone will star in ABC's "Greatest American Hero" reboot

According to The Hollywood Reporter, she will play the role of Cha-Cha, "a ruthless and unorthodox hit-woman who travels through time to kill assigned targets. She is sadistic, sociopathic, and her reputation precedes her. Her true love is torture, and she thinks of herself as a "pain artist." She really doesn't care for people — except for her partner Hazel."
