The NEW Hardest Working Man in Show Business

The title above was also the title of the e-mail that I got from the Monkees site. They have news about Davy and Micky. When you check out the schedule for Living In TV Land you may decide to see the ones with Fred Willard and Sherman Hemsley too. Look at all of their guest stars. WOW!

TV Land´s Reality Series LIVING IN TV LAND To Premiere March 22 - TV Stars
Boldly going where no network has gone before, TV Land will begin airing new
installments of LIVING IN TV LAND on Wednesday, March 22 with LIVING IN TV
LAND: WILLIAM SHATNER IN CONCERT. This 60-minute sneak peek at the series
offers an intimate look at Emmy Award-winner and pop culture icon William
Shatner as he walks viewers through television´s first musical-reality
hybrid show combining musical performances with segments exploring the
reality of his every day life. TV Land will air an encore presentation of
this episode on Wednesday, March 29 in its regularly scheduled timeslot of
10 p.m. and the series will air as half-hour installments through May 3, 2006.
LIVING IN TV LAND began as a special in August 2004 with LIVING IN TV LAND:
DICK VAN PATTEN, a tongue-in-cheek look at a day in the life of the EIGHT IS
ENOUGH star. The series takes a look at the daily ins and outs of Barry
and Davy Jones (THE MONKEES).
"We are thrilled to be able to bring our viewers this intimate look at
William Shatner, who has personified television heroes for the last forty
years," states Sal Maniaci, Senior Vice President, Development and Original
Production, TV Land and Nick at Nite. "Living in TV Land provides a candidly
honest look at these actors and icons that we never really get to see."
Backed by rock & roll piano man Ben Folds, William Shatner takes the stage
in front of a live audience to perform biographical songs from his recent
album entitled HAS BEEN. The spoken-word songs provide musical bridges which
take viewers into the reality of his everyday life. Cameras follow Shatner
through his various life events including the Emmy Awards where he won for
best supporting actor, Las Vegas for a STAR TREK convention, the set of
BOSTON LEGAL, a Hollywood horse show for a riding competition and even to a
maternity ward where he becomes a grandfather. In addition to appearances by
Candice Bergen, Leonard Nimoy, Patrick Stewart and Kate Mulgrew, LIVING IN
TV LAND: WILLIAM SHATNER in Concert boasts performances with rocker Joe
Jackson and country superstar Brad Paisley.

In this episode of LIVING IN TV LAND, Adam West faces a nemesis he can´t
drop with a resounding POW! TV Land cameras follow his appearance on a top-
rated morning show, where he meets TV and radio personality Ralph Garman,
one of Adam´s biggest fans. When Ralph shows Adam his genuine Batman cowl,
Adam pegs it for a knock-off. Ralph is crushed - until Adam mentions he has
an authentic cowl at his home in Idaho. When Ralph asks Adam if he would try
on the real cowl and pose for a picture, Adam refuses. But superfan Ralph
knows that Adam West never turns down a challenge. So he throws down the
gauntlet, challenging Adam to any contest the Batman star chooses. Adam, an
expert angler, chooses a fly-fishing competition, and Ralph chooses the
location. From the moment the contest is set, Adam is obsessed, whether he´s
doing voice work for THE FAMILY GUY or visiting the Batmobile and his most
famous "Catwoman," Julie Newmar. Even the tranquility of his home in Sun
Valley, Idaho is thrown off by a needling phone call from Ralph claiming
he´s found a fishing hole that´s sure to give him a "home field advantage."
