TV One's 4th of July Marathon, New Schedule; Jim Belushi's New Book!

TV One will celebrate the 4th of July with four different marathons. On Saturday, July 1, you'll see a classic Shaft movies marathon. Then on Sunday, July 2 head back to the church with Deacon Frye and company in the '80s sitcom Amen! Get some Monday laughs and laugh the day away with the many faces of Martin. Catch Martin all-day on Monday, July 3 starting at 10am. Then TV one launches new acquisition Wanda at Large on Independence Day itself! Wanda Sykes stars as a comic turned TV reporter, with the marathon starting at 10am.
Then starting July 5, TV One brings you a schedule change with new shows from their Warner Bros. deal. All the shows will not be premiering at once, but you'll get a taste with Wanda at Large, For Your Love, Fastlane and the short-lived sitcom Minor Adjustments. Taking a seat this month are Roc, Boston Public, and City of Angels. Roc was renewed, so fans of that show do not need to worry--it'll be back soon. For COMPLETE details on these schedule changes, including a new Saturday evening sitcom block, click here.

Real Men Don't Aplogize
Actor Jim Belushi now has a book titled Real Men Don't Apologize. SitcomsOnline.com had a chance to receive a copy and boy we sure are happy we got it! It is a HILARIOUS read. It is a quick 272-page read and the list price is just $21.95. This book has all what Jim probably can't say on TV on his hit sitcom According to Jim. The book is like his sitcom and much more though. He talks about his late brother John Belushi in detail. The book is divided into three "books" -- Book 1: How to be a Man, According to Jim; Book 2: Dating, According to Jim; and Book 3: The Book of Love, According to Jim. Each "book" has 5 chapters each. Oh, yes Jim says his editor said he needed a conclusion, which he titles "My Editor Says I Need One of These." You'll love Jim's Sex Glossary at the end of Book 2. Well...maybe Marv Albert, Woody Allen and Bill Clinton won't love it. Here are some excerpts from the book I just loved:
- "Making love is what you do with your wife while you're thinking about CNN's Heidi Collins."
- Number one rule of seduction: "Call the smart ones pretty, and the pretty ones smart."
- "If you think she's cheating on you, then she is-and she'll never admit it."
I'd show you more great excerpts, but we don't use language like that here. Well, anyway, this book is a must have for all men I think. Women you can buy it, too, to see how us men think. You'll be amazed how much this book will teach you about women. This book is like his TV show According to Jim, I think. Of course, with more tips and to the point.
Publishers Weekly says, he frequently refers to his and his friends' failings, advising readers not to make the same mistakes, and while this isn't the pinnacle of relationship-and-lifestyle books, Belushi offers more worthwhile advice than you'd think.
Be sure to order your copy today--because you're missing out on a great read if you haven't read it already. You'll laugh and be very interested because...well, Jim is 100% correct in what he is saying! Visit www.JimBelushi.ws for more info on the book.
And don't forget to catch Jim Belushi in the According to Jim marathon tomorrow from 8 to 10 p.m. on ABC and another mini-marathon on Tuesday, July 4 from 8 to 10 p.m. on ABC! You can catch Jim in its regular 8-9 p.m. slot on ABC Tuesdays all summer long starting July 11.
