I did a triathlon today and I’m tried. I really could’ve used some of this.

At least I wasn’t this guy…yikes.

He’s back! I havent been this excited since Popeyes Chicken put a location in my home city. Last night, HBO’s favorite comedian, Chris Rock, premiered his fourth primetime comedy special and boy did he not disappoint.

Don’t Kill The Messenger took on a daring new format in which Chris taped performances in London, New York, and South Africa then pieced clips from each show together to form one fairly seemeless comedy special. It was a bold move on Rock’s part and I was skeptical at first, but after a short moment of dizzyness, I felt like I was watching comedy history.

Rock touched on politics, the economy, race, and of course…relationships. The show was well paced and quite frankly, hilarious. Chris Rock has firmly cemented his position as the best stand up comedian of our era.

Now if we can only get that crazy Dave Chappelle to come out of hiding, maybe he could challenge the throne.

Frankly, I don’t which corn tribute I am more offended by:

Vice-Presidential nominee Gov. Sarah Palin:

Or American Idol runner-up David Archuleta:

Scary! And a-maize-ing!

Paul Newman passed away last night at the age of 83. He was a legendary actor, entrepreneur and philanthropist. He’ll be remembered for his beautiful work on and off screen and for a member of the Cool Old Guys Club which now consists of Robert Redford, Anthony Hopkins and Clint Eastwood.

Though Newman is best known for his work on the silver screen, few know about his career in television. The Remote Island compiled some of his better moments in a fitting tribute to the star.

Newman is survived by his wife of 50 years, Joanne Woodward, and their five children.

I really liked tonight’s season premiere of The Office. I’ll try to keep this relatively spoiler free for those of you who are time-shifting tonight.

Last year’s hour-long episodes didn’t work for a lot of folks because the familiar quick, snappy pacing of the show was diluted to fill the extra 22 minutes. I was pleased to see that didn’t happen this time. This episode had some excellent one liners, a healthy dose of drama and intrigue and some seriously feel-good moments. (Anyone else want to give Stanley and Jim giant hugs?)

It was really reminiscent of season two or early season three when the show was at its creative peak. Hopefully they can ride this wave all season long. Remember they have a 30 episode order to get through. Even with several hour long eps, that’s a lot of story to fill.

After tonight’s premiere, I am cautiously optimistic.

Happy Birthday edubTV!

Today, we celebrate edubTV’s first birthday! Thanks to all of you, (friends, lurkers, and even the angry Archuleta fans) for making this year a blast.

We’re kicking off year two in high style as makeover plans for the blog are in the works. Hopefully we can get all our ducks in a row in time for the 500th post, a milestone we’ll hit in a little under a month.

Until then, eat some cake! edubTV would want you to.
