Pic Of The Day

September 23, 1962: THE JETSONS Are The Future of TV!

It was a pretty big surprise when The Flintstones took off in 1962 as a primetime cartoon. The networks immediately expected the folks at Hanna-Barbera to come up with another hit--so the studio looked...

September 20, 2013: Happy 65th Birthday to George R.R. Martin!

George R.R. Martin is a celebrity now. That's pretty weird. We certainly wouldn't have thought people would care about his birthday back in, say, 2003. That was when George R.R. Martin was only a...

September 19, 2013: David McCallum Turns 80 (As A TV Star!)

We guarantee that nobody  in Hollywood is having a better 80th birthday than David McCallum is today. He may not be a megastar, but the guy is still enjoying more fame than anyone could...

September 18, 1983: KISS Gets Unmasked On MTV!

Things weren't going well for KISS back in 1983. The rock band had been huge in the '70s, but couldn't find a place in the post-punk '80s. A lot of that was their own...

September 16, 2013: Happy Birthday, James Urbaniak! (You Know Him)

Hey, it's James Urbaniak's birthday! We don't know why that isn't a bigger deal. Probably because he's just a cult actor--and cultish even by the standards of being a cult actor. Urbaniak has certainly...

September 16, 1963: THE OUTER LIMITS Takes Control of Television!

It was fifty years ago today that regular Americans turned on their television and heard these ominous words: There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are...

September 13, 1993: America Meets Conan O’Brien!

We recently marked the 20th anniversary of The Late Show with David Letterman. That, of course, brings us to the inevitable 20th anniversary of Late Night with Conan O'Brien--although Conan sure isn't celebrating the...

September 12, 2003: Johnny Cash, RIP

It's hard to believe that we've now had a decade of a dead Johnny Cash. His iconic status is only looming larger, though. Consider the recent screw-up by an Associated Press reporter who breathlessly...

September 11, 2013: Happy Birthday, Harry Connick, Jr.!

We know it's a grim anniversary and a birthday pretty much ruined for millions--but we still feel like wishing a happy birthday to Harry Connick, Jr. Especially because we're thinking he's the one guy...

September 10, 1993: THE X-FILES Is Out There!

There weren't many people who were expecting The X-Files to be around for long on September 10th, 1993. The FOX network was kind of established by then, but the executives hadn't been able to...

September 9, 2013: Happy Birthday, Adam Sandler!

Who thought that Adam Sandler would be 47 years old and one of Hollywood's biggest star? Not the people who saw Billy Madison as his big-screen starring debut back in 1995. Back then, he...

September 6, 1997: Elton John Rewrites a Hit for Lady Di!

Actually, "Candle in the Wind" wasn't really a big hit for Elton John and lyricist Bernie Taupin. It wasn't even released as a single in America. The song became more of a deep album...
