Salt Lake, Ty Burrell Wants To Make Out With You Corey O'Brien |

Salt Lake, Ty Burrell Wants To Make Out With You

The proprietor of two of the most popular bars in Salt Lake (Bar X and Beer Bar), actor and star of "Modern Family", Ty Burrell, loves Salt Lake so much that he wrote us a nice little love letter.  As picked up by the Trib via the Huffington Posts "Love Letter" section, Ty wrote about Salt Lake:

"I’m fairly certain that you’re about to explode onto the national scene in the way that some other smaller cities have in the past 10 years," Burrell wrote in the Huffington Post letter. "I will try to keep my jealousies at bay as people move here."

Read the full letter here and swoon away in a bubble bath.

So Salt Lake, don't ever sell yourself short again.  Get some hair product and an expensive shirt from Nordstrom Rack because we have a date with a star.

Bill Frost's TV Picks Week of August 19 Bill F |
08/19/2013 | Filed In: TV

Bill Frost's TV Picks Week of August 19

Follow me on Twitter for blatant self-promotion: @Bill_Frost

Tuesday: In the season finale of STORAGE WARS NEW YORK … yeah, I lost interest even more quickly than you did (A&E). Watch DRUNK HISTORY harder (Comedy Central).

Wednesday: New reality series MODERN DADS follows the daily misadventures of four Austin stay-at-home fathers … so that’s a show (A&E). NECESSARY ROUGHNESS closes Season 3 (USA), and THE SOUP celebrates 500 episodes with a live broadcast—what could possibly go wrong? (E!)

Thursday: Get ready for GHOST SHARK! It’s a shark, and a ghost, and a movie! Hey, it’s far more plausible than a Sharknado (Syfy).

Saturday: In the Lifetime movie ESCAPE FROM POLYGAMY, spoiler alert, all disinterested parties do indeed escape from polygamy (Lifetime). Meanwhile in the summer finale of AXE COP, Axe Cop takes on a young protégé—but he’s possessed by the soul of a killer rabbit with a grudge! Then there’s HIGH SCHOOL USA … meh (Fox).

Sunday: The 30th MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS claims that MTV still shows music videos, and therefore can present awards to said videos. Me, I’m somewhat suspicious (MTV). After Geek Show Movie Night, True TV and City Weekly present the next episode of BREAKING BAD at Brewvies Cinema Pub (677 South 200 West, 21+) at 9:30 pm, free (AMC)

Back when MTV did show videos, you could sometimes see Gina Barberi dancing in Warrant’s less-popular follow-up single to “Cherry Pie,” “Chocolate Donut.”

Bill Frost's TV Picks Week of August 12

Follow me on Twitter for updates on my food truck, Tacos 2 Stay: @Bill_Frost

Tuesday: Apparently, there are enough bad girls out there for a Season 11 of THE BAD GIRLS CLUB (Oxygen); likewise, there are enough preppers for Season 3 of DOOMSDAY PREPPERS, followed by the debut DOOMSDAY CASTLE, tonight (NatGeo). There’s also still an AMISH MAFIA, just so you know (Discovery). Also tonight, after the season premiere of FACE OFF, meet the HEROES OF COSPLAY, though they’d probably snag more viewers if they called it Hot Nerd Girls in Skimpy Outfits (Syfy).

Wednesday: Lawyer-bro comedy FRANKLIN & BASH finales for Season 3; no word if Franklin and/or Bash will be back for a fourth (TNT). And, rest easy, DUCK DYNASTY is back for another season of whatever they do on Duck Dynasty … which is … ? (A&E)

Thursday: If you remember a reality-competition show called THE PITCH, good for you; after the season premiere of that, OWNER’S MANUAL debuts—it’s about two guys doing dangerous stuff, one following the instructions, the other following “his gut” (AMC). Also returning for Season 2 tonight is POLYAMORY: MARRIED & DATING, where there is no owner’s manual, but plenty of guts (Showtime).

Friday; Nothing’s on, so come to The Complex in SLC and watch me on THE PAUL DUANE SHOW; it’s like Conan or Fallon, just live in a bar and hosted by a dude in pantyhose. Showtime is 8 pm—should be weird (PaulDuaneShow.com).

Saturday: Kirstie Alley stars in BABY SELLERS, a movie about a woman who traffics kiddies—hey, if there’s a market (Lifetime). In the series finale of the original British BEING HUMAN, the vampire, werewolf and ghost pals have a final showdown with the Devil himself (BBC America). Speaking of Satanism, AMERICA’S CUTEST DOG finales for the season with a “Fluff-a-Thon”—evil! (Animal Planet)

Sunday: THE GREAT FOOD TRUCK RACE premieres for Season 4—spoiler alert: Food trucks aren’t very fast, nor furious (Food Network). TRUE BLOOD finales, likely ridiculously, for the season (HBO); WHODUNNIT finales, definitely ridiculously, forever (ABC). If you’re coming to Brewvies Cinema Pub (677 South 200 West, 21+) to watch BREAKING BAD at 7 pm, get there early—like, maybe noon (AMC).

There is no owner’s manual for Gina Barberi—she’s an eternal mystery. Also, it was thrown out with the box.

Bill Frost's TV Picks Week of August 5th

Follow me on Twitter for breaking traffic tweets: @Bill_Frost Tuesday: The BARTER KINGS return tonight (A&E), as do the DOUBLE DIVAS (Lifetime). In other words, just watch DRUNK HISTORY (Comedy Central). Wednesday: Following the season premiere of LAW & ORDER: UK—yes, it’s everywhere—the series debut of BROADCHURCH follows a former Iron Lady and a former Doctor Who as they investigate the murder of a young boy in a small town. It’s all very British (BBC America). Thursday: Your lame Syfy movie of the week, INVASION ROSWELL, pits Greg Evigan and Denise Crosby against earth-hating alien attackers … don’t like the odds on this one (Syfy). Friday: After the season finale of pretty-good drama MAGIC CITY, pretty-terrible Game of Thrones-wannabe THE WHITE QUEEN debuts (Starz). Also tonight, the gritty and explode-y STRIKE BACK, aka the live-action Team America military action-drama, premieres for Season 3 (Cinemax). Saturday: Western HELL ON WHEELS returns, and it’s still about cowboys and railroads (AMC). Larry David’s new movie CLEAR HISTORY finds Larry playing a different version of Larry—a marketing guy who quits a start-up electric-car company right before it becomes a billion-dollar success—alongside Jon Hamm, Kate Hudson, Bill Hader, Eva Mendes Danny McBride, Michael Keaton and J.B. Smoove. It’s not Curb Your Enthusiasm, but it’s pretty, pretty, pretty much Curb Your Enthusiasm (HBO). Sunday: It’ll probably have different name, but AQUA TEEN HUNGER FORCE is back tonight, followed by SQUIDBILLIES, still called Squidbillies (Adult Swim). Following the debut of LOW WINTER SUN, an intense Detroit crime drama, BREAKING BAD returns for its final eight episodes, which you can watch on the movie screen for free at Brewvies Cinema Pub (677 South 200 West, 21+) at 7 pm. Be there, early (AMC). In the next Syfy movie Invasion Sugarhouse, Gina Barberi and Anthony Michael Hall battle aliens during a Labor Day weekend sale at Shopko—set that DVR.
