    #TBT to when Ted & Gracie got engaged


    Every Thursday, TLB participates in #TBT by scrounging around the internet for precious web gems of yore. Here’s one of our favorite videos that deserve some extra attention.

    It’s October, a lovely time for a beautiful Autumn wedding. This romantic season (I guess they all can be), reminded of a couple named Ted and Gracie. Played by Ben Kronberg and Jena Friedman, the original Ted & Gracie sketch was a parody of the The New York Times “Vows” series. Gracie is just your typical New Yorker who fell in love with Ted, a former school teacher (before some things happened) and current locksmith and probable serial killer. Uploaded to Youtube in 2010, Ted & Gracie later spawned into a six episode web series. Check it out.

British actor and writer James Corden was named Ferguson’s successor in August. According to THR, Corden’s reign will debut Monday, March 9th.

    The Late Late Show with James Corden will be taped at the CBS Television City lot in Los Angeles, and has named Ben Winston as showrunner.

    “We’re excited to begin CBS’s next chapter after midnight and introduce James’ wide range of performance talents and fearless creative instincts to American television viewers,” said CBS Entertainment chairman Nina Tassler. “He and Ben have been friends for a long time and partnered together on a variety of successful projects. They are a creatively dynamic and very energetic host/producer combination.”

    Winston had previously served as the executive producer of Britain’s X Factor, and has worked with Corden during his four year stint as emcee of the Brit Awards.

    ABC has ordered a script to be produced by Fey and 30 Rock’s Matt Hubbard and Robert Carlock. Feimster will star in the multi-cam sitcom that will be set in North Carolina, where Feimster grew up, and will be loosely based on her family life and stand-up. Hubbard will write the script.

    Feimster is most likely best known for being a regular on Chelsea Lately. She recently had her own Comedy Central Half Hour, and had guest roles on Two Broke Girls, Workaholics, and Mulaney.
