Go Now: January 6, 2009

By Garrett Godwin

Hello, there!

This is Garrett Godwin, and it is time to Go Now.  It is the show that tells you what`s been happening in the world we all know and love as the world of entertainment.

  • Reuters has reported that John Travolta and wife Kelly Preston has cremated their son Jett, who suffered a seizure at their hoilday house last Friday in the Old Bahama Bay resort on Grand Bahama.  It was stated by Travolta and Preston that their 16-year-old son, who has had a history of seizures, was sick as a toddler and was diagonsed with Kawasaski disease, which leads to blood vessels being inflammed in children of young age; the couple also has a eight-year-old daughter, Ella.  A statement from a Bahamian lawmaker on Tuesday said that Jett`s ashes was flown to Florida.  The body was cremated at the Restview Memorial funeral home where, according to an official, the cause of death was listed an "seizure disorder".
  • Rebecca Romijn and Jerry O`Connell began the new year as new parents to twin girls Dolly Rebecca Rose and Charlie Tamara Tulip, born on December 28.  They`re the first for the newlywed couple, who tied the knot in 2007.  Romijn`s rep Lewis Kay told People that the family "are all home and doing well".

Nightly TV Listings:

  • On CBS tonight at 8pm is an all-new NCIS, where McGee (Sean Murray) becomes trapped in a women`s prison when a riot breaks out.
  • On TNT at 10pm is another episode of the new hit series Leverage, about a team of modern-day Robin Hoods whose targets are the powerfully corrupt, greedy, and wealthy on behalf of the victims.  Tonight`s episode finds the team exposing an Serbian adoption agency that scams money out of American couples that are looking to adopt children from war-torn countries.  My earlier perception of this series was an U.S. version of the BBC series Hustle but after watching the pilot, this is definitely The A-Team with an mixture of Ocean`s Eleven.  If you want a show that`s about settling the score, TNT provides that with Leverage.

And that is all the time we have here today, so thanks for joining me.  And don`t forget to check out what`s been happening right here on the SOP

I`m Garrett Godwin, and I have to Go Now once again, so I`ll see you later.
