“I want our animated specials to be loved and last as long as the Grinch and Charlie Brown have been for me,” says Elf on the Shelf co-creator Chanda Bell. “The North Pole is the Greek mythology of our time. We want to tell all of Santa’s stories."
Remember when Shaquille O'Neal and Ludacris were spotted singing Christmas carols at Ponce City Market about a month ago? Turns out it was for a TBS holiday special, SURPRISE! Instant Xmas Carol!
Best friends forever. That’s the theme of CeeLo Green’s new TBS reality show, CeeLo Green’s The Good Life, which will focus on the recent reunion of Goodie Mob, the Dirty South hip-hop group that first made Green famous back in the 1990s. During a panel and Q&A with the band and the show’s producers at Savannah College of Art and Design’s aTVfest Friday afternoon, Goodie Mob member Big Gipp summed up the message of their new show.
"I want to welcome everyone who couldn't get a ticket to tonight's Braves game," Conan O'Brien told a cheering audience Monday afternoon at the first Final Four week Atlanta taping of his TBS "Conan" late night show at the Tabernacle downtown. Longtime fans like Jas Chahal and Stephanie Kasper, who had won their tickets through the TeamCoco.com website, had been milling about on Luckie Street all day. Chahal had driven up from Orlando for the occasion and from their second row seats, they had orange signs reading "ATL Luvs Coco" and "Conan Hug Me" signs at the ready (note to fans attending this week's shows at the Tabernacle: the show's stage manager requests that the audience refrain from displaying your Conan love signage since it will interfere with the cameras swinging around capturing the show in progress).

That is, one imagines that Ted Turner would love all these things—if he were still in charge of his namesake networks, headquartered in Atlanta.
