Nickelodeon and Weather Channel 2008 Upfront Pics!

At the Nickelodeon 2008 Upfront, Amy Poehler came out and talked about her new show "The Mighty B."  The show is about a Honey Bee (same thing as a Girl Scout) who is an over achiever and is looking to get every badge in the book.  Her little brother is going to be played by Andy Richter (who also is working on a sketch show with Comedy Central).

Chris Meloni also made an appearance to talk about his role in the first ever Nick made-for-TV original movie, entitled "The Gym Teacher." In the film, he plays a washed up olympic gymnast turned gym teacher.  In the movie Meloni is entered into a sort of "Gym teacher of the year" competition where he needs to get one of his lackluster students in shape. 

At the end of the show, Natasha Bedingfield came out and performed to represent the partnership between Nick and Sony Music Entertainment.   

The Weather Channel Upfront was a good time.  It was held at the very posh Espace, where we ate odd peanut flavored noodles from a platform suspended from the air covered in grass.  Gnarls Barkley was a hit.  They performed a 45 min set with a mix of their old and new material.  They made sure to let us know that their new album The Odd Couple "dropped" April 5th.   

Here are some pics (Sorry only had our phone cameras!) from the Nickelodeon and Weather Channel 2008 Upfront events!
