Dolly Parton and Ice Cream

Country legend Dolly Parton and Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream are teaming up to give us a taste of the “9 to 5” country songstress. I love this too, because proceeds will go to Dolly’s Imagination Library, which is a book gifting program that supplies free books to kids up until the age of five. What’s the flavor you ask? No word on that yet, or the release date, but I’m assuming it’s gonna taste like country… so delicious!

63rd Grammy’s One of the Lowest Rated Shows In Recent TV History

Sunday night’s Grammy Awards were the lowest-rated Grammy show in history! Maybe it was because of the host or because of the raunchiness of some of the tone-deaf performances, but something needs to be fixed and the ratings are proof in the pudding. Ratings were down nearly 53 percent, and to put things into perspective, only 8.8 million viewers watched “Music’s Biggest Night” in prime time, on network TV. Last years show had 18.7 million viewers, and prior to Sunday night’s show, the least-watched Grammys were a host-less awards ceremony, snagging 17 million viewers. So, it seems more people would rather watch no one hosting the Grammys, than Sunday’s big show.
