DVR Alert: Kelly Clarkson’s Cameo On “The Crazy Ones” Tonight!

As we reported several months ago, Kelly Clarkson will appear alongside Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar in the pilot for CBS show, The Crazy Ones. Well, tonight is the night you will find Kelly on your televisions, playing a hilariously exaggerated and oversexed version of herself. Do you REALLY want to miss this?!

Set your DVR for tonight’s episode of The Crazy Ones, airing at 9:00pm EST/8:00pm CST!

Preview: Kelly Clarkson to Appear on CBS Sitcom “The Crazy Ones”

Kelly Clarkson: Pop star. Crossover country star. Reality shows mentor. Honorary McEntire. Sitcom star?

Although that last role may seem a bit far-fetched for the crossover country star, Clarkson will be adding yet another role to her already impressive resume. This fall, she will appear alongside of Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar in the pilot for a new CBS show, The Crazy Ones. Although she’s appeared on the small screen as a guest on Reba and a mentor on Duets, this may be Clarkson’s most risque role since grinding against Justin Guarini in From Justin to Kelly.

In the pilot, Clarkson plays a hilariously exaggerated and oversexed version of herself, while Williams and Gellar play a father-daughter advertising team. So you’ve got Mrs. Doubtfire, Buffy and the original American Idol in one place? We’ll be tuning in to CBS on Thursdays this fall at 9pm!

Trace Adkins Talks About Memorial Day

Trace Adkins.

In a recent interview with CBS News, country music singer Trace Adkins shared his thoughts on Memorial Day.

I believe that Memorial Day should be the most reverent day of the year for us as Americans…I think it’s taken very seriously by the people that recognize it…And then there are some people that it’s just another day off from work. You know, that’s too bad.

Adkins has been a dedicated supporter of the men and woman who serve this country his whole life.  Recently, Adkins kicked of Fleet Week in New York with an intimate concert for servicemen and women.  Adkins says performing for servicemen and women “restore[s] your faith in humanity.

If you have the chance and you have an opportunity to spend time…with bona fide heroes, why would– why would you not want to do that…And when I get the opportunity to do it, all I can do is– I hope some of ‘em maybe it’ll rub off on me.

Fans of Trace Adkins can catch him on his Proud to Be Here Tour, going on right now.  For tour information and date, visit www.traceadkins.com.  Below is the video featured on CBS News.  Click the link to view to original CBS article.
