Let's Take a Moment to Remember "Beauty and the Beast" as a TV Show
Growing up, "Beauty and the Beast" was two things to me-- a Disney cartoon with dancing silverware and Celine Dion and a TV show with a really, really ugly guy.
Now, it's the biggest movie in the world and everyone seems to have forgotten what the Beast looked like in 1988.
From 1987 to 1990, "Beauty and the Beast" aired on CBS, starring Ron Perlman and Linda Hamilton. The show was set in New York City and it's underworld-- where the Beast lived. According to one IMDB user the show had a double-focus, "the relationship between Vincent,(a mythic, noble man-beast) and Catherine (an asst DA in New York); and a secret Utopian society of outcasts living in an underground sanctuary where Vincent is protected and loved."
Because the Internet is a great place, someone took Celine Dion's "Beauty and the Beast" ballad from the cartoon and paired it with clips from the TV show.
As Ariana Grande plots her career and her personal journey following the horrific attack that killed 22 people outside of her Manchester, England concert, one dad in Georgia has a few things to say to her. (Things that I'm so glad someone finally said out loud.)
I will say-- if you would've asked me in 2002, who would end up a big-time mogul and consistently creating between Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson and Mandy Moore, I'm not sure I would've said Jessica Simpson.

A couple of weeks ago, Carrie Underwood called up the Nashville Predators before a home playoff game and asked to sing the National Anthem. Since then, Luke Bryan, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Vince Gill, Keith Urban, Kelly Clarkson and Trisha Yearwood have been asked to sing. This series of events caused the Preds' "regular" National Anthem singer, Dennis K. Morgan, to reach out to the media and air his disdain for these decisions.
If you missed ABC's remake of the classic "Dirty Dancing," you only missed the opportunity to see what happens when you try to reinvent an eternal classic by adding a Pussycat Doll into the mix. Of course, the Internet had a lot to say about one of the saddest primetime made-for-TV movies ever.
I've always said I'm glad social media didn't exist when I was in middle school. I would've had more terrible YouTube videos out there than one could ever imagine.
6 Pretty Hilarious Things Jessica Simpson Said on "CBS Sunday Morning" (Before That Interview with Ellen)
If you don't watch "CBS Sunday Morning," you're missing out on one of the most enlightening and endearing shows on TV. Like a lot of things I do on Sunday, I religiously watch this show. Last week, Jessica Simpson was interviewed and I didn't think much of it, until I saw that super weird interview on "The Ellen Show."
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has played some incredible roles over the years. From his years as a cocky tough guy in the squared circle, to a guy that is racing to Witch Mountain (Which mountain? THAT mountain!).
