Pop acts on television this week include Jennifer Love Hewitt, who promotes her new movie ‘Garfield: The Movie’ on ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’ on Monday, ‘Late Night with Conan O’Brien’ and ‘The Daily Show with Jon Stewart’ on Thursday, and ‘Live with Regis and Kelly’ and ‘The Early Show’ on Friday; Wilson Phillips, who perform on ‘The Tonight Show’ on Tuesday and ‘On Air with Ryan Seacrest’ on Wednesday; and Jennifer Lopez’s new hubby Marc Anthony, who as of now is still scheduled to perform on ‘The View’ and ‘Today’ on Tuesday.
Wilson Phillips are back with the group’s long awaited third album ‘California’. Carnie Wilson tells Reuters the timing of the reunion just seemed right. “I would say we’re picking up where we left off,” explained Carnie. “But, we have moved into a new space and it just seems more mellow and more mature just, I don’t know, peaceful, or something.”
Jim Farber of the New York Daily News reviewed and savaged Wilson Phillips’ first album in a decade, ‘California’. Farber writes, “The album may be the worst thing to happen to California since the San Francisco earthquake… Drunken frat girls performing karaoke on a bet would have brought more feeling to the songs. Wilson Phillips’ version of Joni Mitchell’s ‘California’ should have them brought up on charges.”
