CBS calls Rob and Amber “Romber,” officially announces their wedding.

CBS calls Rob and Amber “Romber,” officially announces their wedding.
Lost amid all of this Pope stuff is CBS’ official confirmation of what we already knew: Rob and Amber got married on Saturday. Yesterday, reality blurred reported an exclusive account of their wedding, which took place on Atlantis in the Bahamas. The photo CBS sent shows the happy couple at the resort. The release also confirms that “Rob and Amber Get Married,” the most creatively titled series in CBS history (“Locusts” comes in a close second), will air Tuesday, May 24. Over two hours, we’ll get “a behind the scenes look at the preparation for the wedding filmed at Atlantis, Paradise Island in The Bahamas, special surprises that they planned for each other, her bridal shower, their bachelor and bachelorette parties, their rehearsal dinner, the wedding ceremony and reception, among other events.”

But best of all, we all have friends at CBS. That’s because their press release was titled, and I am not making this up, romber_announcement.doc. Yes, the nickname used for the couple by haters and fans alike has been apparently adopted by CBS internally.

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
