  • '30 Rock' to live it up with live episode Thursday 


    NEW YORK (AP) — In a move to inject new life into its kookiness, “30 Rock” is going live this week.
    It will be the second such outing for the NBC comedy, which is normally a polished, single-camera filmed affair. It went live for a night in October 2010 with an episode performed during the show’s normal time slot, then re-staged for West Coast viewers.
    The same plan will be followed this Thursday: Originating from NBC’s Studio 8H (fabled home of “Saturday Night Live”), “30 Rock” will air live for viewers in the Eastern and Central time zones at 8:30 p.m. EDT, then be reprised at 8:30 PDT for the rest of the country.

  • George Jones makes family feud public

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — It’s not his health but a family feud that is bothering George Jones.
    The 80-year-old country star posted a video message on his website Wednesday, thanking fans as he recovers from an upper respiratory infection. He then accused his daughter Georgette Lennon of spreading lies about him on the Internet.
    He was hospitalized for nearly a week last month and had to postpone shows.

  • Movie Review: Hitch a ride on the ‘Chungking Express’

    This week, the library will screen writer/director Kar Wei Wong’s “Chungking Express,” a '90s movie that feels like a 90s movie. Having “come of age” in the 90s, I mean that as a compliment.
    I like flannel shirts mixed with impressionistic psychotic love. And, it turns out — no offense to my Seattle-born (go figure) Anglo husband — I sometimes like Chinese men.
    This is a great movie, but to be honest, it took me a long time to realize it. I was well into the film before I started to understand and care about its very messed up characters.
    In some cases, it was easy, such as with the aforementioned Chinese men, by which I actually mean man, or much more specifically, Cop 663, played by Tony Liung Chiu Wai.

  • ‘GMA’ poised to snap ‘Today’ winning streak

    NEW YORK (AP) — The 16-year ratings dominance of NBC’s “Today” show, one of television’s most epic streaks, has apparently ended.
    The Nielsen Co. said Monday that ABC’s “Good Morning America” beat NBC’s morning show last week by a razor-thin margin of 13,000 viewers — and ABC owes Tim Tebow a hearty thank you.
    The “Today” show had won 852 consecutive weeks in the ratings, a streak that began in December 1995 when Bryant Gumbel and Katie Couric were the chief anchors.
