Programming Notes

July 2nd, 2008 by Rebecca Harper Editor

As the long weekend approaches, we’re doing our best to be sure there’s plenty to watch in between the fireworks displays. We’ve introduced 11 movies in the last week (all part of the Hulu Days of Summer), plus a few things you may have overlooked:

More from MOJO

MOJO continues to serve up more content on Hulu this summer. This week, we’ve added two new MOJO shows that appease your need for more sports and more technology. Fields of Glory, hosted by college sports broadcaster Brent Musburger, offers an insider’s view of college football’s greatest stadiums. Take a look and see if your alma mater is represented. Meanwhile, The Circuit‘s geek-chic host Deepak Ananthapadmanabha (just call him Mr. Ananthapadmanabha) delivers gadget- and tech-related news with wonderfully dry delivery — what better way to learn about glow-in-the-dark pigs? (Of course, enlisting the help of Howard Stern’s Bowling Beauties to demonstrate Wii Bowling doesn’t hurt, either.)

Talent Show

Think America has talent? You can be the judge with clips from America’s Got Talent. Whether the Southern Belles wow you with their synchronized clogging, Miss PussyKatt makes you blush with an act that’s straight out of shop class, or 9-year-old David Militello melts your heart with his spot-on rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Ben,” there’s a little bit of entertainment for everyone.

Hill Street Blues

Before The Shield and even NYPD Blue, there was Hill Street Blues. Covering the work and personal lives of Captain Furillo, Sergeant Esterhaus and the rest of their squad, it offered a “real,” detailed view of the grittier side of life on the force. What made Hill Street Blues remarkable was its accurate portrayal of the force, the large ensemble cast, and the interwoven plot lines that arced over the course of several episodes. We’re happy to be able to bring another season on board for its devoted fans.

Be careful out there, (Rebecca),

    I LOVE the Hulu Days of Summer! It gives my family and I something new to look forward to every morning and is a great way to break up the summer monotony. Thank you!

    Hey Rebecca – Hulu really needs to acquire a BBC show called “The Trench”. I think it’s only three or four parts long. It’s an amazing reality-show look at World War I, through the eyes of the grandsons and granddaughters of soldiers who lost their lives in the War. They undergo the same training their ancestors did and live for weeks in the same WWI trench – under the same conditions- that they did. The show aired once on The History Channel. It would make an exciting and classy addition to Hulu.
