Today is the last day of Spring Break and it’s my last Spring Break ever as a student. Wowzers! I’m in 18th grade now (yay Grad School!) and frankly I’m ready to just finish up. I’m graduating in less than two months (yay finishing Grad School!) and from the looks of this sketch, from Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, I can’t get out of here soon enough.

I have a hard time embedding anything but YouTube so you’ll have to click out, but trust me, it’s worth it. For your consideration: Grad Student Spring Break.

Who had a good week? Let’s find out.

  • Celebrity Apprentice 2: CA2 was probably the funniest two hours of television I watched this week. It was unintentionally awesome. I love it when C-List celebrities (and a few heavy hitters) come together to make asses of themselves and pretend to apply business knowledge to absurd situations. Shot-out to Annie Duke and Tom Green for knowing how to work the game. It’s never about the actual challenges folks, it’s who you know in the New York area who feels like giving you $10,000.
  • Matt Giraud: I am a huge MG fan. He’s an awesome piano player, sounds a little like Justin Timberlake, hails from the Midwest and he’s easy on the eyes. I was pleased to him go through to the American Idol Top 13 this week. Step 2: Get behind a piano and stay on the show for awhile.
  • Jimmy Fallon: I didn’t think he could pull it off but his Late Night With Jimmy Fallon debut was surprisingly good. He seemed a bit tense on Monday but every episode is getting a bit better. Once he settles into a rhythm I think he’ll do well. Miss the show this week? You can catch them on Hulu. Might I suggest the episode with Tina Fey. You know who I’m a little worried about? The Roots. Their interludes left a bit to be desired. I love their music so that was disheartening. I’m holding out hope. Creating hundreds of brand new songs will wear on anyone.

Do you realize how much good TV comes on Wednesdays? Wednesday is my new Thursday. Booya.

  • A bunch of analog stations switched over to digital yesterday ahead of the new deadline. So far the FCC is reporting very few issues. Sidenote: A kid I work with just submitted his application for a converter box. I asked him “What took you so long?” He said, “I didn’t know anything about it.” If you don’t watch enough TV to hear about the digital transition, I think it’s okay if we transition without you.
  • Amy Poehler’s new show, Parks & Recreation,  started filming today! Color me geeked! Kristin Dos Santos has an interview with the star herself.
  • Angela Kinsey (Angela from The Office) and her husband Warren Lieberstein have separated. If the name Lieberstein sounds familiar, it’s because Warren is Paul Lieberstein’s (aka Toby Flenderson) brother.
  • I think a recession era economy, novelty shoes should be the first things to go. Check out these Family Guy and Fresh Prince insprired sneakers.
  • Speaking of late night music, U2 is going to perform on Lettermanfor a straight week. I’m sorry, but that just doesn’t sound appealing to me.
  • Speaking of LOST, it better watch it’s back. It’s losing viewers every week and it will have to compete with American Idol starting in March.
  • After 19 seasons The Simpsons got brand new opening titles. It’s the same general theme but we get to see a lot more of our town favorites. There’s also a few homages to past episodes in there.
  • Guess which washed up early 90’s rapper is getting a TV show? MC Hammer. I know, I was hoping for Snow too.
  • Tracy Morgan’s apartment caught fire due to a busted light in a fish tank. Surprisingly the fish were okay, as were the rest of the folks in his building.

It’s been a slow news week. We’ll keep it short.

  • Wanda Sykes came out of the closet at a Prop 8 Rally over the weekend. You go girl!  Check out this timely clip from an old stand-up special.
  • And I finally have one reason and one reason only to give a crap about Jimmy Fallon taking over on Late Night…The Roots are going to be his house band.
  • Guess who’s joining Amy Poehler on the Office non-spinoff? Rashida Jones. You may remember her as Karen…from The Office. That’s not confusing at all.
  • Michelle Collins over at Best Week Ever crunched the numbers behind the lanky, awkward girl gyrating with Beyonce on SNL last week…hilarity ensued.
  • Bob Hope is getting put on a postage stamp. It’s about damn time.
  • And finally, my favorite non-TV related link of the week: Kids reading books to dogs! The video with the article is a must watch. It’s adorable/hilarious.
