Posted in Humor, NBC, Video with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 8, 2009 by tvismyiv

Bradley Cooper was the host of last night’s Saturday Night LiveWho? What? Why? you might be thinking, but my suggestion is to pretend it didn’t happen.  Here’s quite possibly the best bit of the night:

Otherwise, the other highlights would be Seth Meyers’ solo run at Really?!? regarding Kellogg’s dropping their sponsorship deal with Michael Phelps after the pot smoking incident, and Kenan Thompson playing Pittsburgh Steelers’ James Harrison, who broke a Superbowl record returning an interception the entire length of the field for a touchdown.

Lost Season 5 Preview – Run Kate Run!

Do not get me wrong – I absolutely thirst for this show.  The wait has caused my lungs to collapse and my other addictions to relapse.

Pretty much like how it is for Kate.  In this snippet of a preview for the Season 5 Premiere of ABC’s Lost, we quickly come to realize Kate hasn’t broken her old habits… namely, running from Johnny Law.  I’ll bet a nice return visit to the Island should solve everything…

January 21st can’t get here quick enough.

Tuesday’s TV Picks

8pmABC is hosting A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.  It’s probably painful to watch as an adult, but if you’re willing to try, make sure you watch the above clip before the show starts.  Guaranteed warm fuzzy feelings.

9pm – Or actually, 9:08pm (Fox extended House to capture the crowd that tunes into Dancing with the Stars for just the dazzling opening)… The Mentalist is on CBS.  I know nothing about this show, but I do know it was rated the best new show by critics… or something like that.  Welcome to TV is my IV – where we make this shit up as we go along.  Moving along…

10pmLaw & Order: Special Victims Unit is on NBC.  There’s a Detective named Benson on this show?  Benson?  I loved that show as a kid!  Did you know it was a spin-off of Soap?  And wasn’t Robert Guillaume awesome on Sports Night?  I miss that show.

Not A Bad Night For SNL

Posted in Humor, NBC, TV, Video with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 23, 2008 by sgottahurt

After last week’s mehpisode, this week Saturday Night Live stepped up its game.  Considering Tim McGraw was the host (as opposed to Justin Timberlake who no doubt had to back out in order to stay in bed with Jessica Biel), the show made me laugh.  The cold open about the Big Three Bailout was a highlight (which was on Hulu, but seems to have disappeared), as was Michaela Watkins debut as Arianna Huffington.

Here’s an always awesome Kristen Wiig highlight:

Also, where’s more Abby Elliot?!  And get rid out that stupid waiter character by that new guy I don’t think I like!

Survivor Recap: That’s The Way The (Sugar) Cookie Crumbles

Posted in CBS, Humor, TV, Video with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 22, 2008 by sgottahurt

As this season of Survivor starts picking up some serious steam (baths… at least for Susie), it’s the developing maturity of two contestants that is making the difference.  Scratch that.  I was enjoying watching Kenny and Sugar grow up into their own skin the last few weeks, but there still is some childishness left in them.

As Jeff Probst put it in his weekly, um, Entertainment Weekly blog:

…I felt badly for Randy getting played at tribal council like a banjo at a small town country fair. (Yes, I know, bad analogy and small town and country fair are probably redundant)…

It is redundant Jeff, but I make up words.  Like Randy got Sugarfied

…So why did I feel bad? Maybe there is just something about Randy that I can relate to and sympathize with. Oh, he will hate me saying it like that.

My friend Serena thinks the answer lies with Sugar and the way she handled herself as I read the votes. “Not cool.” (I think she might be right. Serena is almost always right.) That uncontrollable laugh that came from such a deep place inside Sugar was so uncomfortable that I almost wanted to pull the votes out, rearrange them, rewind the tape, and vote Sugar out…

She pulled that after the entire fiasco with the cookies.  (She spitefully took advantage of Randy’s last offer for a chocolate chip cookie so he couldn’t get one.  I’m not defending him at all, but he could have spilled the entire tray on the ground!  I bet Probst & Co. were hoping for that one.)

The thing is – my hands were sweating watching that Tribal Council.  I not only felt slightly bad for Randy, but also for Bob.  (Not Corinne, though.  I agree with what Jeff says below.)  Bob seemed like he had second thoughts about the deception, whereas with Randy, it appeared that whatever little faith he had left in humanity was extinguished with his torch.

Jeff on Corinne:

Corinne on the other hand is equally as mean as Randy but I don’t find myself rooting for her in any way. She is an original. I will give her that. Not sure we’ve ever had anybody on the show quite like Corinne. Corinne is as subtle as a thunderstorm. Subtle as the look I give a Survivor when they want to quit. Subtle as, I know, a Probst analogy.

Jerri Manthey can’t hold a candle to Corinne. Jerri had some likable qualities about her, Corinne has none. Just ask her. She’ll tell you the same thing.

And about Kenny’s immaturity – he may be controlling the game… for now,  but his choices for elimination seem to come from as equally a vindictive place as Sugar’s.

Here’s hoping what happens next: Bob, Sugar, and Matty make an alliance against Kenny, Susie, and Crystal.  (Corinne is a non-point, except for the possibility of seeing her naked.)  And it’s a knock-down drag-out fight to the finale.

In closing:

The Roots Have Fallon And They Can’t Get Up!

Posted in Film, Humor, NBC, TV, Video with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 17, 2008 by sgottahurt

For those of you that may not know, Conan O’Brien is leaving his late night show.

Ha!  Gotcha!  (…prollynotrlly…)

Jimmy Fallon (formerly of Saturday Night Live and regrettably of Taxi) will be taking his place, when Conan will be taking Jay Leno’s place next year.  According to this article from Gawker, hip hop band The Roots might be his house band.

Imagine mixing these two acts together:
