Other than the news that Alyson Hannigan had her baby (it’s a girl, they named her Satyana) its been kind of a slow TV news day. I haven’t watched anything of note to talk about (Though 24 was especially brillz! No one fucks with Tony Almeida and gets away with it).

So that leaves me with one option. Ladies and gentleman, edubTV faithful, and those just passing through. For your consideration, this picture.


I have so many questions, and yet find myself at peace. Though I’m sure the baby would’ve preferred to be held by Splinter.

What a Monday folks! We had one long-held rumor confirmed for us, and one nice little surprise come to light.

  • First, the rumor in question. Yes, we’re being treated to two more seasons ( 13 episodes each) of Friday Night Lights. Bickety-Bam! NBC is continuing their partnership with Direct-TV so the dish will get the eps first and NBC will run them second. I personally don’t care when they air, so long they run as promised. This season has been spectacular and rumor has it the season finale is a beaut.’ Great determination from this show’s rabid fan base. They never gave up hope. Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose!
  • Second, a jolly piece of news today: the syndication rights to The Office have been sold to stations covering 93% of the country. What does this mean for you? Unless you live in Moose Junction (and maybe even there) The Office will be on 5 nights a week in a city near you. What nice news. The show currently pops up in re-runs on TBS but the potential to see it everyday is a nice step-up. Not only will this get the show out to the latecomers who “didn’t understand it” the first time around, it also gives us long-running fans something to smile about. My hope? It replaces the current Two and A Half Men hour currently soaking up time on my Fox affiliate.

Why is everyone trying to save Dennis Rodman?

Is he really sweet off camera? Are we all still hung up ¬†on “reapeat-3-peat” memories?

I just don’t understand why we’re being brought to tears over a basketball player, who by all accounts, seems like kind of a douchebag.

End of diatribe.

I’m trying to watch Better Off Ted again. I just don’t think it’s for me. It’s a little too cute for my taste. I can almost see it animated. 5 second review over, on to the updates.

  • Barbara Walters is 79-years-old. It’s about time she retires. (Sidenote: Regis Philbin is also 75+. Both of them look a decade younger than John McCain.
  • Mad Men update! Season 3 starts shooting in May and premieres in July. Everyone’s favorite closeted Italian Sal, played masterfully by Bryan Batt, said his character will probably never come out. “There’s going to be more torture in his story, “ he said. I can’t wait.
  • Things are worse than I thought: Two and a Half Men just got renewed through 2012. Sweet jesus. Won’t they be at 3 men by then?
  • I didn’t anything was off limits for Family Guy but apparently this was.
  • And my favorite non-TV related link of the week: Lunch Bag Art. One awesome papa draws gorgeous pictures on his children’s lunch bags. I’m sure a book deal is fast approaching.

Dan Meth is an animator and blogger. He’s making a series of pop culture charts and graphs. This is one that made me smile.


He couldn’t include every show but I think he did a nice cross section. Sometimes when you watch TV it seems like everything is happening in New York or LA. It’s nice to have a visual confirmation that that’s just not the case.

See more of Meth’s chart-work on his website. My favorite is the sitcom houses diagram.

Guess who just made me feel like a shlub? None other than boxer-brief advocate and Amazing Race host, Phil Keoghan.

The all around good-guy is hopping on his bike for what will surely be an epic journey, complete with saddle sores and lots of fun along the way. He’s biking over 3,500 miles (from Los Angeles to New York City) to raise money for multiple sclerosis research. The trip starts on Saturday and runs through May 9, equaling out to just about 85 miles in the saddle each day. Along the way he’s planning to do promotional events at GNC stores and attend some Amazing Race casting calls.

Phil had this to say about his upcoming trek,

“I fly over 400,000 miles a year and I figured it was time to stretch my legs. I love to ride so I thought I’d see what this great country looks like up close instead of taking a bird’s eye view at 30,000 feet.”

I’m glad there are folks like him out there pushing their bodies to limit for a good cause. You can donate to Phil online (Help him out, he’s only raised $525 bucks so far) and follow the trip on his personal website.
