January is basically the new September. Not only do you have to welcome brand new shows into your previously established and well-honed TV line-up (Damn you Trust Me!) but you have to find spots for old favorites that are just getting started like 24 and Lost. Without some organizational wizardry it can get pretty ridiculous. Thank heavens The TV Addict has come to my rescue once again and put together a calendar of the premieres and returning shows so you won’t miss anything.

You can download a copy for yourself right here!

And take a look at January 18th. My brain might explode from premium cable awesomeness.

Thanks to Interesting Pile via Remote Island for posting this list of all the sweet TV Marathons happening today, tomorrow and even the day after Christmas.

I’ll be watching Smart Guy on BET. Remember that show?It was about TJ, a child prodigy and his wacky misadventures. Little TJ was played by Tia & Tamera Mowry’s younger brother Taj. Omar Gooding also had a recurring role on the program. What ever happened to him? He may have peaked on Wild & Crazy Kids.

If movies are more your thing, tune in to the annual Christmas Story Marathon on TBS starting tonight at 8/7C. USA is running 24 hours of Elf next week. Apparently the holiday season now extends through New Year’s. Slammin!

Post-Election Day High Edition! Let’s keep it short.

  • Sad news first: Michael Crichton, blockbluster author of books like Jurassic Park, and The Andromeda Strain lost his battle with cancer today at the age of 66. Crichton contributed to television as the creator of ER. He based the series off of his own experience as a medical resident.
  • Elisabeth Hasselbeck’s concession speech on The View this morning wasn’t as sincere as John McCain’s but I applaud her good sportsmanship. Sherri Shepard got a bit emotional but then again…who didn’t?
  • Big Love is starting again in January. It’s been close to 16 months since the show aired thanks to the Writer’s Strike. Did you forget what’s going on? Want to get in on the last solid drama HBO has? Check out this four minute catch-up video.
  • Joe Mande is a hilarious comedian/blogger. He plays a little game every week where he mashes up the first and last lines of Andy Rooney’s old man rant on 60 Minutes. This week’s was especially funny.
  • Bravo is gearing up for another season of Top Chef. Say hello to the fresh meat…the new chefs that is.
  • I can’t stand Nancy Grace, but gosh her babies are cute.

I freelance over at CollegeCandy, a blog by and for the college aged ladies. Anyway, I spent my Monday nights this summer watching The Bachelorette. I suffered through hours of footage every week to write updates and re-caps for the CC faithful.

So needless to say I was a little more invested in this season than the average viewer. When I heard that DeAnna broke it off with snowboarder Jesse, I was shocked but then again…not really. It never really made sense as to why she chose him in the first place. They had nothing in common, they wanted different things, they lived halfway across the country from one another and didn’t really seem deadset on moving. It was the most ridiculous match in reality dating history.If anything, I’m a little pissed I wasted some perfectly beautiful summer nights.

You can watch Jesse’s tearful announcement below:

Marry: The People Who Finally Decided To Watch 30 Rock

The show’s season premiere on Thursday boasted a record 8.53 Million viewers. Welcome to the fold new fans. I thought the episode was only so-so, but this news gets me going again.

Bop: Tivo & Netflix

The two are teaming up to bring Tivo/Netflix subscribers 12,000 titles right to that little set-top box. There is nothing sexier than being able to watch  whenever I damn well want.

Kill: Tyra Banks

Hey single ladies and gents! Tyra wants you to blog about what it’s like to be single in the city. Write hilarious anecdotes about your dating exploits, share your darkest secrets for Tyra public to see. But hey, she won’t be able to pay you and she’ll probably use your free, witty content for fodder on her show. JSYK.

Another Wednesday, another batch of updates.

  • Eric Mabius’ wife looks like she’s about to explode…with babies.
  • As far as crappy rap parodies with low-production values go, this one is pretty boss.
  • Speaking of HBO, did you see Entourage on Sunday? It turns out Turtle (Jerry Ferrera) and Jamie Lynn Sigler are an item in real-life. Adorbs!
  • Lauren Graham, formerly of Gilmore Girls fame is making a jump to the great white way. Graham will make her Broadway debut in the highly anticipated revival of Guys and Dolls. Didn’t know she could sing? This YouTube believer never had any doubt.
  • Christmas is coming. Wanna get me a gift? Make me a Muppet damnit!
  • Get your cringe-on: Larry David’s coming back for another season of Curb Your Enthusiasm
  • My favorite non-TV related link of the week: Brokers With Hands On Their Faces Who knew the economy was so funny?
  • And if you don’t have cable, you probably had a hard time finding something to watch at the 8/7C hour. Barack took over the airwaves (except ABC, who knew they’d fight for Pushing Daisies so hard?) and delivered his message straight to the American people for a good half hour. If you missed it on the air, you can watch it below. I teared up at the end. Don’t forget to vote people.

It’s the 500th post folks! Who knew this humble blog would make it this far? We’re celebrating this milestone with a website make-over, and a few new features to take us into the next era of so-so, witty TV blogging.

So here’s what you have to look forward to on the new edubTV:

  • Hump Day Update will now be an official weekly feature. Where else can I share the most ridiculous TV links I find throughout the week?
  • Contests: My brother wants to start giving stuff away. Most blogs that do this get their prizes for free. I on the otherhand will be going nuts for the edubTV public on the day after Thanksgiving. I hope you guys like Bargain DVDs!
  • The Podcast: This idea got tossed around earlier in the year, but I’m hoping to finally get it off the ground soon. Frankly, I hate the sound of my voice on the answering machine, so it may be a vodcast.
  • More Site Features: WordPress has the capability to do some pretty amazing stuff so we’re hoping to use those widgets and gizmos to make edubTV a more interactive site.
  • Whatever The Heck You People Want: Got a suggestion or something you want to see? Let us know. We’re pretty open to suggestions. It’s the fun and our five readers that got us this far.

So I can’t wait to get started on the next phase of this site. It’s been a very fun project for me and I’m looking forward to the future.

Your job? Spread the good word. No need to be major marketers here. I’m not asking you to join a street team…yet.¬† Just pass the word along to friends, roommates, significant others, strangers with good taste, etc. Your help is much appreciated.

Onward and upward friends and fans! See you at the 1000th post!
