Whoopi Goldberg to join the cast of The Lion King...
Wed Jan 13
...for one night! Whoopi, who originated the role of Shenzi the Hyena in Disney's 1994 animated film The Lion King , will make cameo appearances throughout tomorrow's 8pm performance of the Broadway musical at the Minskoff Theatre . We're not quite sure what the multitalented comedienne will be doing, but we can only imagine it will make the incredible show even more fun—and funny—to watch. Can't swing tickets ? You can catch footage of Whoopi's performance (and rehearsals) on ABC's The View next week. Photo courtesy of Disney by Joan Marcus
Watch American Idol with the kids tonight
Tue Jan 12
We've been so distracted by the news that this is Simon Cowell's last season on American Idol , we almost forgot that the ninth edition premieres tonight at 8pm on Fox . We ran an article in our January issue about why the TV talent competition is ideal family entertainment, so if your brood is bored this evening, we suggest you jump on the bandwagon and start rooting for your favorites. If watching the show puts you and your kids in the mood to belt out some tunes, be sure to check out our roundup of new karaoke video games . We tried them ourselves and we promise they're tons of fun.
