Caroline, 'Miss/Guided' and Adam Carolla
One of these things is not like the other...
From Jonathan Wysocki:
Wysocki urges you to yuck it up with some UCLA comedy!
Firstly, TONIGHT (Tuesday) is the premiere of my dear friend Caroline Williams' hilarious sitcom "Miss Guided" on ABC. Caroline, (who happens to be funny, smart and wildly gorgeous), has been receiving rave reviews for the show, which charts a woman whose teenage insecurities resurface after taking a job as a guidance counselor at her old high school. There are seven episodes, so don't miss them!
Here's the schedule: Tonight: 10:30 p.m. Thursday, March 20th: 8-9 (back to back episodes) Thursday, March 27th: 8-9 Thursday, April 3rd: 8-9
Tonight's episode comes on after "Dancing with the Stars"…Which features Adam Carolla…And thus I smoothly segue into "The Hammer" starring Adam Carolla!
"The Hammer," a romantic boxing comedy, is a wee indie I Associate Produced that is opening this Friday! The film is also receiving stellar reviews, with Variety comparing it to Cukor's "Pat and Mike" and the Reporter declaring it to be more akin to "Rocky" than any boxing film to date. For those skeptics who connect Adam with gross man humor, I can guarantee his performance will charm the pants off you. (Or some other clothing item protecting your modesty…if you have any modesty left, that is.) Because its theatrical release is so tiny, the box office numbers this weekend will make or break the film, so please check it out!
