    Uhhhh...I kinda thought NBC had given up on the concept. “Hairspray” was fairly amusing, but “Peter Pan” was cringeworthy, and I’m a huge Walken fan. I’m sure somebody will have a conniption fit over the casting, but that’s their problem. What’s the buzz?

    Christmas Story was pretty lame, too.

    I probably wouldn't watch Christmas Story, Peter Pan, or Hairspray in any media/venue, anyway. And as much as I can appreciate some music from Jesus Christ Superstar (far more than Hairspray), I think the play itself is utterly ridiculous.

    But Alice Cooper in Jesus Christ Superstar? That just makes sense in every way. I may have to watch it. But I also said that about the winter olympics, and I haven't watched it yet. Skiing is the only olympic sport I give a rat's butt about. Just trying to be helpful.

    Even better:
