This Dos Equis ad has been littering print, computer screens for the past few years. The character (pictured here) is known simply as The Most Interesting Man in The World and is the spokesman for the Dos Equis brand of beer. In the commercials the character is pictured as an oracle of wisdom, a bon vivant. Through his stories and experiences, this person all of a pastiche of "cool" characters you've seen or heard about many times. I've seen about 10 of the spots and I wondered who this person was. And then I thankfully forgot about it and went on to more important things like making fake personal ads on the internet and playing "got your tongue!" with my cat.
I was watching Charlie's Angels one night as the doctors prescribed and I watched this episode called One of Our Angels Is Missing. Not the happiest of titles. Anyway our angels had to find a sleaze factory of a man named Rick Devlin. Devlin was thought to be a simple petty thief. He wasn't. Turns out he was a rapist and murder and he was with our Kris Munroe! When I say this portrayal was eerie, I'm not kidding, this guy was one of the worst characters I've seen and he was played by a actor named Johnathan Goldsmith. With actors like Richard Romanus and Stanley Kamal all but spinning themselves into the concrete in their guest turns, Goldsmith got his job done very quietly and in an unsettling manner. And guess what? Turns out Rick Devlin, well...
Note: This investigation earned me this award.

Jenna Wolfe- What was the line in that song, "If you don't know/Now you know..." Here's something for all of the geeks chitter chatting about Jenna Wolfe and her business. In a Today show appearance, it was Jenna Wolfe's time to entertain us/make us uncomfortable.
Since 2012, Jenna had been demoted to basically just the news person on the weekend Today show. She was the co-anchor for years (along with Amy Robach.) Any way, I saw Jenna on the couch with the regular Today show crew and I got so excited--until I heard some interesting news. Jenna Wolfe is pregnant. What else? Jenna Wolfe has a girlfriend. When I heard the news I let out a wail and hid underneath my desk. The times are changing so fast. Why can't she find a man and be unhappy!
A picture from my private collection....
Part 2: I hate him.
Of course NBC was all a twitter doing manage control and Guthrie had to get online and say, "Folks it was my INDEX finger." Sure it was. And really if it was her thumb, that facial expression isn't one of the most loving one I've ever seen.
Part 2: I want to see Savannah, Al Roker and Jenna Wolfe's baby attack Matt Lauer and lock him in a rundown cabin and press the button that says "TNT."

You know, it all seemed so easy once upon a time. The Jeff Prosbt Show debuted in September of
In fact, the show never did attract a constant audience and went through many permutations until it settled on a constant: Total chaos. And guess what? By December, the Jeff Probst Show was letting people go left and right. The public never knew but the shifts was seen onscreen.
It all wasn't a tragedy though. The Jeff Probst Show brought the likable Lisa Whelchel on as a co-host a few times. Community's Yvette Nicole Brown also appeared. While neither of them (or Lisa Ling) were named as a co-host, it did give the audience a sense of how the show would have gone if it didn't get drop kicked off the air.
CBS Entertainment says the show will complete its first and (chokes back sob) only season.
