A Chat With Comedian George Wallace

George Wallace has been doing stand-up comedy since the average Premium Hollywood reader was in elementary school…or possibly even longer than that. (You make the call: his first TV appearance as a stand-up was on “The Mike Douglas Show,” and it’s fair to suspect that he’d already been doing comedy for a few years before that.)

The CW gets body-slammed by MyNetworkTV

Okay, maybe “body-slammed” is overstating things, but recent ratings numbers have found that MyNetwork has been beating The CW in the ratings for the last three weeks…and it’s at least partially because of the former’s broadcast of World Wrestling Entertainment matches.
