First the zany folks at ABC's The Drew Carey Show decided to broadcast their Nov. 8 episode live. Then, just to prove they were live, the actors tuned in to watch The WB's Felicity, which competes in their Wednesday night time slot, and improvised that show's dialogue. Although Drew Carey executive producer Bruce Helford's first choice to join in on the gimmick was The West Wing, the producers of the NBC drama turned him down and the honor went to Felicity, with one caveat: no jokes about star Keri Russell's hair. "The idea of characters on a live show tuning in to another network to see what's on was brilliant," says Felicity executive producer J.J. Abrams. "My only hope is that it reminded people: 'What the hell am I doing not watching The WB?" '
E! Entertainment Television caught flak after one of its reporters, Linda Grasso, visited the site of Survivor: The Australian Outback and revealed details of her trip to Daily Variety's Army Archerd, which he then printed in his column. The problem was that any members of the fourth estate who visited the set had to sign an embargo agreement that prohibited them from releasing information about the show until Jan. 3. CBS sent E! a letter warning them of severe consequences if such a breach occurs again.
John Stamos is almost Goofy when it comes to all things Disney. He even took his wife, Rebecca Romijn-Stamos, to Disneyland on their first date. Well, now I hear he just spent $30,000 to buy a Disneyland entrance sign during an auction of official Disney collectibles on eBay. The sign, displayed from 1989 to '99, is comprised of individual 13½-ft.-high letters made of galvanized steel. Stamos plans to display one of the Ds in the couple's living room. Fortunately Rebecca's a Disney fan too.
The biggest star of Dr. Dolittle 2 isn't Eddie Murphy. It's Tank the bear. The 890-lb. grizzly takes direction better than most actors, I'm told—as long as there isn't food around. Unlike most sets, which have munchies available all day, the Dolittle crew on the Sony lot in Culver City, Calif., has to say ciao to chow whenever Tank is around. His presence also mandates that crew members abstain from chewing gum and even from wearing deodorant.
