30 for 30: Mike and the Mad Dog on ESPN at 8:00pm ET. This is about two sports radio guys. I’m sure someone out there is excited about that. Perhaps even someone who is not Mike OR the Mad Dog.
Penn & Teller: Fool Us on The CW at 8:00pm ET. Fourth season premiere.
Big Brother on CBS at 9:00pm ET.
Hooten & The Lady on The CW at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. This sounds absolutely bizarre. It’s some kind of odd couple pairing of a brash American treasure hunter and a British lady who team up to «solve the world’s greatest mysteries.» The American is named Ulysses Hooten and the lady is Lady Alex Lindo-Parker. Apparently it was originally a Sky 1 production, so maybe the British contingent can help us out with what to expect here.
Akil the Fugitive Hunter on A&E at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. I’m just gonna quote directly from A&E’s website for this one. «A&E’s new docuseries ‘Akil the Fugitive Hunter’ combines live-action and animation to chronicle the journey of modern-day superhero Akil Muhammad as he tracks and captures some of the most elusive criminals in Los Angeles in order to keep his community safe.» There’s narration by Wood Harris of The Wire, animation by Carl Jones who worked on Black Dynamite and The Boondocks, and original music from Ty Dolla $ ign. It sounds like a REAL mixed bag, but it could be wonderful.
Hi all! I’m C.J. and just starting today with Dlisted. Like J Harvey, I’m from Boston, but I don’t have a cah to pahk in the yahd, unfortunately. And I apologize in advance for the uptick in Jane Pauley-related posts, but she’s a national treasure and long overdue for her moment! In the meantime….
Ryan Murphy is somewhere praying Iggy Azalea and Azealia Banksstart fighting again ASAP because F/X is going to be F/X/Y/Zzzzzzzz if Feud 17 has to be about Drake Bellnot getting the invite to Josh Peck’s wedding and crying about it. John Stamos, Josh’s Grandfathered co-star, Instagrammed a photo where he’s posing like Fabio on the cover of a Dollar Tree romance novel and boasted how he got the invite and didn’t even want to go.
Hear that, Drake? Uncle Jesse didn’t want to even be there, and he still went. Probably just for the baked potato bar and because who doesn’t like to have a reason to dance to Love Shack? Just kidding, Stamos seems to love Drake Bell almost as much as he loves the Full House paycheck revival by also Instagramming his love for the married couple:
Drake Bell seems to have put down his little violin and moved on. His Twitter has been less about Nickelodeon wedding snubs and more about his newly released EP. He even told People, “He’s been my best friend for 18 years. In all honesty, we talk all the time, we’ve been talking. I was just expecting…” No clue what he was actually expecting, but I’m still expecting Catherine Zeta-Jones to play John Stamos in Feud 17.
If you’re a young millennial, then you’re probably familiar with a little show called Drake & Josh. The iconic Dan Schneider sitcom starred Drake Bell and Josh Peck and was basically a pivotal part of our teenage years (you know, way before the days of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody). While the two actors had a real-life bromance during their Nickelodeon days, it seems like their friendship isn’t as strong as it used to be.
After Josh tied the knot with his girlfriend, Paige O’Brien, this month, Drake threw some major shade on social media after not getting an invite. «Loyalty is key,» he wrote in a comment that has since been deleted. «ALWAYS remember where you came from.» While Josh was reportedly «hurt» by the comments, it was just as big of a blow for their dedicated fans. Even though they’re not really on speaking terms right now, we can still look back on the good ole days and hope that they’ll find a way, find a way to be friends again.
Josh Peck was surrounded by friends and family as he tied the knot with longtime girlfriend Paige O’Brien in Malibu on Saturday, but there was one familiar face that was missing from the crowd: his onscreen brother Drake Bell. While Josh’s former Grandfathered costar John Stamos attended the ceremony, fans were quick to notice that the Drake & Josh actor wasn’t on hand for the event. Well, it turns out, he wasn’t invited. Following the wedding, Drake responded to the invite snub with a cryptic tweet. «When you’re not invited to the wedding the message is clear….,» he wrote in a post that has since been deleted. «Loyalty is key,» he continued in another deleted comment. «ALWAYS remember where you came from.»
According to an Us Weekly source, Josh is pretty upset over Drake’s Twitter rant. «At Josh’s wedding this weekend some guests were asking Josh Peck where Drake was,» the source explained. «Josh told everyone that he and Drake hadn’t spoken in three years. They would tweet each other back on social media a couple times a year, but never actually spoke. When Drake didn’t get invited to Josh’s wedding, he started tweeting all of those dramatic memes. Josh was really hurt. They aren’t close anymore and Josh had a very small wedding.» The two recently reunited during an episode of Grandfathered in February 2016, but it seems like their brotherly love isn’t as strong as it used to be.
Remember Nickelodeon’s Drake & Josh? Well, get ready to feel old because Josh Peck is a married man now. The 30-year-old actor tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend, Paige O’Brien, in a beautiful ceremony in Malibu, CA, on Saturday. The film editor stunned in a gorgeous ivory strapless gown, while Josh opted for a classic black tux. They exchanged «I dos» in front of family and friends, including Josh’s Grandfathered costar, John Stamos, but there was one familiar face that was missing from the crowd: his onscreen brother Drake Bell. Turns out, he wasn’t invited.
After the wedding, Drake responded to the invite snub with a cryptic tweet that has since been deleted. «When you’re not invited to the wedding the message is clear….,» he wrote. «Loyalty is key,» he continued in another deleted comment. «ALWAYS remember where you came from.» Josh has yet to respond to respond to Drake’s tweets. Josh and Paige first began dating back in November 2013 and got engaged in March 2016. Congrats to the newlyweds!
Josh Peck and Drake Bell have appeared on multiple Nickelodeon TV shows together (The Amanda Show, Drake & Josh, the two Drake & Josh specials). But that was clearly a long time ago. Josh is no longer a chubby kid in a series of bad wigs, and Drake has moved on to the messy former child star chapter of his life. By all accounts, they’re not close. That didn’t stop Drake from pouting online about not getting an invitation to Josh’s wedding.
Josh Peck married his girlfriend Paige O’Brien on Saturday. E! News says that several fans wondered online why Drake Bell was MIA from the wedding. Drake took his complaints to Twitter and tweeted (then deleted) “When you’re not invited to the wedding the message is clear…” which was followed by “Loyalty is key. ALWAYS remember where you came from.”
That’s not to say Josh didn’t invite any of his former co-workers to his wedding. On the contrary, E! says the guest list included his Grandfathered co-star John Stamos, as well as the mom of the two 4-year-old twins who plays Josh’s on-screen daughter.
I’m sure there’s a very good reason for why Drake didn’t get invited. Weddings are expensive, and Josh probably only had enough money left in the budget for one extra celebrity guest. And when it comes down to it, you know he’s always going to keep a seat open for Oprah.
I’m not going to pretend to know anything abut Drake and Josh for the benefit of this post. The Nickelodeon series was after my time as a kid, so my first exposure to either Drake Bell or Josh Peck was the terrific 2008 Josh Peck film The Wackness (which also introduced us to Olivia Thirlby, who disappointingly did not become a thing, as I had hoped). From my recollection of my review of The Wackness, many of our readers alerted me to the fact that Peck was the heavier-set individual in the Drake and Josh duo, which I found surprising at the time:
Anyway, Josh and Drake had a sitcom together. It ran for four seasons and 57 episodes, which I suppose means to those who grew up in the aughts that Josh and Drake are obligated to remain friends forever. Apparently, Drake Bell also believes this because he was surprised and saddened to learn that he was not invited to Josh Peck’s wedding.
Apparently Bell had been replaced by John Stamos, which I guess is a bit like Will Smith replacing DJ Jazzy Jeff as his best friend with Tom Cruise.
The Internet was apparently rather upset by this development, and while I do not share in that grief, I will bring it to your attention.
At last night’s Billboard Music Awards, Drake was the Prom King, Prom Queen, Most Devastating Smile, Maple-Dipped Hottie, and the drunk chick who grabs a bunch of awards while everyone is on the dance floor screaming to Party Rock Anthem. He won everything.
Drake took home 13 of the 22 awards he was nominated for, including Top Artist, Top Male Artist, Top Billboard 200 Album for Views. Drake’s now the most-awarded single-ceremony artist in BB history. And he was so damn excited about all his awards. Drake was like a stripper who once bareback boned Drake watching two lines appear on a pregnancy test. He did lots of thanking and gushing, and also joked that the previous record holder Adele – with 12 at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards – would no doubt beat his record just as soon as she releases new music.
He also rode a wave of emotions regarding co-host Vanessa Hudgens. Drake began by cringing hard at what I guess we would technically call an attempt at rapping. But by the end of the night, he was shamelessly hitting on her and creeping on her Instagram account.
Drake shot his shot at Vanessa Hudgens, ended beef w/ Luda, thanked Nicki & Wayne, & "Boy if you don't stop" a meme. pic.twitter.com/YifAOamsgt
Drake did more than just collect trophies; he also performed Gyalchester from his most recent album More Life. And he did it in the fountain at The Bellagio. Blessings be to Saint Degrassi for giving him the foresight to perform that close to water. If any of those millions of fireworks went rogue, he’d only have about 0.6 seconds before his white suit caught on fire and turned Drake into roasted duck.
Here’s more of Drake backstage after the Billboard Music Awards with all of his trophies. Also included is the woman who has no doubt received hearts and winky-faced emojis on at least two dozen of her Instagram pictures since last night.
