I’m on an American Idol high right now. I won’t spoil it, but let’s just say history was made tonight, and I am thankful. This show keeps finding ways to keep me coming back. Some ways are easier on the eyes than others.

Let’s get to it!

  • Someone finally had the brillz idea of remaking the Golden Girls...in Turkey no less. Now not only do they have delicious kabobs, but a foreign version of Blanche. Can life get any better?
  • When you’re the kind of guy who makes his own Kenny Powers jersey, getting arrested was sort of bound to happen. And sidenote: Eastbound & Down got picked up for another season. Fuckin’ right!
  • Speaking A-List, the 2nd Annual A-List Awards are on tonight. They’re essentially a 90 minute commercial for Bravo, but I might watch just for Kathy Griffin. Her special tonight was aces!
  • Guess where season 8 of 24 is taking place? Memphis! I kid, it’s New York. But wouldn’t it be a lot funnier in Memphis? He’d have to deal with a slower pace of life, and he’d have to learn how to shoot a gun with BBQ hands.
  • Nadya Suleman may have made her best decision yet. She is getting a TV deal, but it’s going to be documentary style instead of a reality show. Cameras will follow her family just six times a year instead of constantly. They’re going to follow the family until the kids are 18. In the spirit of full disclosure: I will have a hard time not watching these specials…every single time.
  • Everyone’s favorite Governor, Rod Blagojevich is headed to jungle…for a reality show. That was a mighty fast plummet.
  • And my non-TV related Link of the Week: Rainn Wilson twittered about this band like an hour agao and I’m already into them. It’s Balthrop, Alabama everybody. Prepare to fall in love with Pop music again.

Estelle Getty died today. She was 84 and very sick. She had a rare form of Alzheimer’s Disease and had been sick for some time. Because she’d been out of the limelight so long, most people probably thought she was already gone.

But instead of feeling sad for losing another great actor this year (seriously 2008! Why?!) let’s just laugh for awhile okay?

I’ve come across some amazing links the past few days. Who would I be if I didn’t share these nuggets with the edubTV public? A jerk that’s who.

  • Thank you PEOPLE Magazine.com for making this bad-ass Gossip Girl vs. Golden Girls quiz. Do I feel like an idiot for getting half of them wrong? Perhaps. But who knew Blanche never flashed a bartender to get free drinks? I bet I could find that in a deleted scene or two.
  • NERD ALERT: Someone took the time to put every LOST flash-forward in chronological order. I watch this show every week and I cannot wait until it makes sense.
  • Like a compass pointing towards magnetic north I was pulled towards YouTube today and my fingers crisscrossed the keys as if guided by the hand of a higher power. Where did I land? Pepper Ann. I used to love this oft-forgotten Saturday morning ABC cartoon and today I realized just how similar I was to this mop-topped, spectacled awkward teen…still. I might make the theme song my ringtone. Too much?
