But it’s not any ordinary selfie… it’s taken in the exact spot where a scene from the new NBC hit show “This Is Us” was filmed! And I can prove it, with this screengrab of Chrissy Metz (who plays Kate), standing in the same place: Read the rest of this entry »

American Ninja Warrior

March 19, 2014

Have you seen American Ninja Warrior? It’s one of my favorite shows. It airs on NBC during the summer, as well as the new Esquire network (it used to air on the G4 network). The show features athletes from around the country competing to make it through a series of extremely tough obstacle courses, each one harder than the last.

I’m an ugly crier!).

Last month, I completed an awesome stair workout on stairways seen in classic Hollywood comedies. On Friday, I did another fantastic stair workout, this time on stairs that were just featured on TV! Have you seen the new NBC comedy “Welcome to the Family”? It premiered a few weeks ago, and on the October 10th episode, one of the stars, Mike O’Malley (who also plays Kurt’s father on “Glee”), was shown running up a big public stairway:
