If Scrooge Was A Brother
Eb Scroo is a successful African-American businessman with a surly attitude about the world, Black people, and especially Christmas. Scroo is so set in his vile ways that he has allowed his heart to grow cold, displaying no pity on the poor. After his former mentor and partner Boss Marley warns him about the punishment he's making for himself in the afterlife, three ghosts visit Scroo. The Ghost of Christmas Past is not only symbolic to Scroo's own history but to those of his ancestors. The Present shows Scroo how a little salvation makes a difference. Finally, The Future shows him the ripple effect he could create if he remains the same. With If Scrooge Was a Brother, this Christmas will be like no other.

Hey Myron: Groupon on the First Date

Hey Myron:
I recently went on a first date with a guy who used a Groupon to pay for your meal. He’s a nice guy, but it was kind of a turn off that he would use a coupon on the first date. I don’t think that was a good first impression. Am I wrong?

Dear Turned-Off:
If that’s how you feel, that’s how you feel. But consider this…you stated that he was a nice guy. So apparently the date went well, he was respectful and kept your attention during the whole time. However, the coupon was an issue. I’m assuming that he didn’t take you to one of the cheap fast food joints, otherwise it would have been a part of this letter.  So let’s look at this situation from another angle. Instead of being “cheap”, maybe he is just smart with his money.

If you’re really looking for a meaningful relationship as a result of dating, you most certainly have much more important things to worry about on a first date…and a “Groupon” should not be a deal breaker. Consider this…if this guy is smart with his money, he can become a “boyfriend” who is smart with his money. If he’s a boyfriend who is smart with his money, he can one day become a “husband” who is smart with his money. So is it such a bad thing now?

Jodeci Reunites for Soul Train Awards

Get ready for what may be the most anticipated comeback in the history of R&B. Jodeci is getting back together for the first time in eight years to perform at the 2014 Soul Train Awards.

"Soul Train was a critical platform in the beginning of our career. So it only makes sense that our return to the stage be during the Soul Train Awards 2014," the group said in a written statement to Yahoo! Music. "We're humbled by the loyalty of our fans who have asked for a Jodeci reunion and look forward to giving them a show as only Jodeci can. #JODECIFOREVER."

According to a spokesperson for the Soul Train Awards, the foursome will perform a live medley of their hit songs. The group scored five number one hits in their hay day including "Stay," "Forever My Lady," and "Come and Talk to Me." In addition to the classics, Jodeci will also perform a portion of a brand new single.

Jodeci first hit the R&B scene in 1991 with their debut album Forever My Lady which was certified three-times platinum and remains their best selling album to date. In 1997, two members of the group, K-Ci and JoJo, left to form the duo K-Ci and JoJo. The guys haven't been on stage together since 2006. The Soul Train Awards 2014 will be hosted by Wendy Williams and is scheduled to air on BET Nov. 30.

Will Smith to Produce TV Version of "Hitch"

Will Smith will executive produce a small screen version of his film “Hitch’ through a new deal with Fox TV, reports

The romantic comedy series will be based on the hit 2005 movie which starred Smith as love guru Hitch who ironically becomes a fumbling mess when around the woman he has a major crush on, played by Eva Mendes. The TV version will feature 30-minute episodes and is being pitched as “a workplace comedy that explores dating and sexual politics.”

The green light is a triumph for Sony, Smith and his Overbrook Entertainment production company as they have been trying to get the film to TV for several years, first in 2007 when they attempted to strike a deal with CBS, before trying again with Fox in 2010. Four years later, the deal has finally been made.
The film grossed $370 million at the box office when it was released nearly a decade ago. No word yet on casting.

“Hitch” now joins a growing list of famous box office hits that are getting reboots or spin-offs for TV, with “Marley & Me,” “Monster-In-Law,” “Minority Report,” “Rush Hour,” “Big” and “The Illusionist” among those that are heading to the small screen.
