raising-the-bar

TNT will not be ordering a third season of its legal drama Raising the Bar, due to low ratings.

The series stars Saved by the Bell alum Mark-Paul Gosselaar and follows a group of lawyers in New York City, who went to the same law school.

In a statement, the network wrote,

“Everyone at TNT had a great experience working on Raising the Bar with Steven Bochco and the rest of the show’s terrific cast and crew. We’re proud of the series and appreciate the efforts of all of the creative people who were involved. Unfortunately, ratings for Raising the Bar’s second season did not reach the levels required for TNT to renew the series.”

Raising the Bar’s remaining three episodes are expected to air in 2010.

“It´s difficult to imagine loving another child as much as you love your existing children.Anyone who has a family will tell you this.Where will one find that extra love? If you love your existing children with all of your heart, how then can one possibly find more heart with which to love another?
On Friday October ninth 2009 at 7:46pm, the answer to this question came in the form of our fourth child and second daughter. Lou Sulola was born and from the moment she looked into both of our eyes it was endless love at first sight.

John Mayer Covers ‘Details’

1209 DE noupc

John Mayer takes the December cover of Details magazine. The singer talks about his life, career and whether or not people hate him.

Here are some highlights.

How he feels currently about his life:

“I have the obsessiveness of someone who’s a sober, recovering addict displacing his addiction. Except I never had the addiction. I’m in the place of greatest freedom right now—not giving a fuck. I have what I would consider artistic tenure, and I created it for myself. I don’t have anybody telling me what to do. I don’t have ‘fuck-you’ money. I have ‘that’s my seat’ money.”

On whether people hate him:

“What if I had a booth on the street and I said, ‘Attention, everybody who hates me: If you have a problem with me, I’m ready to hear your gripes! I will be outside the Barneys store on 60th Street from two to four this afternoon. I will not be speaking to fans. I will only be speaking to people who do not like me. Come out and let me have it. I will not speak back.’ How many people do you think would be standing there? I’m talking about people getting the chance to tell me directly, ‘I think you’re a douchebag.’ You know how many people would do it? Ze-ro. You know what they’d do? They’d walk up and say, ‘I’m just messin’ with ya.’ And you know what I’d say? I’d say, ‘You’re a douchebag!’”

On whether he dates celebrities to further his career:

“You just never know who’s going to come into your life. To my mind, the only thing sicker than saying, ‘Wow, you’re a famous person and it would do a lot for my career to go out with you,’ is to say, ‘Wow, you’re a famous person and I like you and all, but I can’t do that to my career.’ I don’t think either of those is a good option.”
