Dwayne Johnson, who I believe is no longer obligated to be called The Rock, hosted tonight’s show in anticipation of Race to Witch Mountain (witch looks awesome!)

Here are the skits and five people’s opinions of them:

COLD OPEN – The Secretary of Treasury talks about the failure of our economy.  $420 billion goes to the individual that can solve the banking crisis problem.

  1. Chris – “Can I fast forward this skit?”
  2. Venessa (who laughed at insurance companies insuring houses that are on fire comment, for some reason) – “She thinks Tracey Jordan’s theory from 30 Rock works – Panic!”
  3. Richie – “Not funny.”
  4. Jess – No comment.  Kept getting up to check on her microwaved Chinese food.
  5. Sean – “I laughed… enough.”

OPENING MONOLOGUE

  1. Chris – “Really?  This is his third time?”
  2. Jess – “He looks too skinny.”
  3. Venessa – “Yeah, it makes his head looks to big.”
  4. Richie – “His neck’s still huge, though.  And what’s with that tattoo?”

  3. Chris – “Is.  Barack Obama.  That easy.  Of an.  Impression.  To do.”

  3. Venessa – “Grrr… satellite radio!  I loved the River!”
  4. Chris wanted to fast-forward, but Richie and Venessa wanted to keep watching, so we did

WEEKEND UPDATE

  1. Venessa – “That’s so true.” (in reference to AIG building a $15 billion toilet to flush $15 billion down it)
  2. Sean – “That’s just like the Cartman swearing bit in the South Parkmovie.” (re: zapper on the RNC spokesman Michael Steele’s head, at 1:15 mark)

Wednesday’s TV Picks

Posted in ABC, CBS, FOX, Humor, NBC, TV with tags , , , , , , , , , , on December 3, 2008 by sgottahurt

8pm – There’s nothing to be done for ABC’s Pushing Daisies except to say: buy the Season 2 DVD next year.  That having been said, you have your pick of Christmas retread-itions (NBC lights up their 30 Rock tree and CBS lights up Rudolph’s nose).  Or you can check out Fox’s Secret Millionaire.

According to Fox’s site:

Each week, one of the wealthiest Americans, worth millions of dollars, will go undercover into one of the most impoverished and dangerous towns in America. Their job is to spend one week canvassing the town – meeting as many people as possible – some of whom will touch the millionaire with their dedication to helping others while others will have incredible stories of trying to overcome tremendous odds. On the final day, the Secret Millionaire meets with the chosen recipients and reveals his/her true identity and intentions – to give them a sum of money that is going to change their lives forever.

Unless the Secret Millionaires are Mark Cuban, Bill Gates, or Donald Trump – not interested.  But if there’s a possibility for a mugging…

9pm – If you’re interested in the Grammy’s, then CBS is for you.  They’ll announce the nominees and Celine Dion will perform.  If you’re interested in Grammy’s… you have a problem.

10pm – To the opposite end of the spectrum: Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.  On CBSVictoria’s Secret.  Fashion Show.  What part of this are you not getting?

Secret Santas

Secret Santas

 Much better than Secret Millionaires, indeed.
