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.

The one day late edition. I’m in Florida. The weather is nice. Time flies by. I have 969 unread articles in my Google Reader and I only missed one day.  Needless to say, this will probably be the shortest, untimeliest, HDU. My apologies.

  • Guess who won Top Chef? Stupid, stupid, Casey! I blame you for this.
  • The Simpsons are going to be on for at least two more seasons bringing the grand total to 22. They’ll be 7 episodes shy of 500. Longevity rocks!
  • Kathy Griffin is getting $2 Million to write a book. Will you read it? I love KG but I’m not sure if the humor will translate.
  • Michael Cera finally manned up and agreed to be in the Arrested Development movie. I slept well for the first time in a long time last night.
  • Finding the remote really is awesome. The only thing better? Finding your cellphone in the couch.
  • Old people…they’re at it again. This time a 70-year-old man shot his TV after he couldn’t get his converter box to work. This will be the subject of the next Dish-TV commercial.
  • You can watch free CBS & Showtime shows on your iPhone now…as if you didn’t have enough awesome things to do with it already.
  • My favorite non-TV related link of the week: The Giant Scrabble Board. Add this to my Christmas list…or personal life goals.

Hip-hip hooray, time to get going. My online jeopardy audition is in 40 minutes.

  • Speaking of long-running game shows, Pat Sajak is kind of repulsed by the gay couple in this clip of Wheel of Fortune.  I am now repulsed by Pat Sajak.
  • Nancy Cartwright, the voice-talent behind Bart Simpson, has been using her Bart voice to promote Scientology events. That’s probably not going to go over so well.
  • Connie Britton is one of my new favorite actresses. Dalton Ross talks to her about the new season of Friday Night Lights.
  • I am seriously on the edge of my seat for Jon Hamm on 30 Rock. This clip is tiding me over.
  • This interview with Lauren Graham made me miss Gilmore Girls a little but I’m excited for her new show on ABC.
  • The format of My Life On The D-List is changing. The next season is going to be more like a talk-show. Not sure how I feel about this just yet.
  • My favorite non-TV related link of the week: Giant Inauguration Picture! Zoom in and out, it’s awesome. I think Clarence Thomas is sleeping.

  • Has Friday Night Lights always been on Hulu? I might’ve just missed it. Seasons 1 and 2 are on the site which means you can find me in front of my computer for the next several days. I don’t think I’ll finish in time for the January 16 return but it’s worth a shot.
  • Tim Allen and his wife Jane are expecting their first baby together. I only tell you so I have an excuse to link to the best mugshot ever.
  • This 2001 clip of Obama on Check, Please!, a local food review show is making its way around the internet. I also like corn cakes Mr. Obama. That’s going to be my opening line when we meet at the inauguration.
  • Kathy Griffin is no longer banned from The View. Hopefully she makes an appearance sometime soon. Anyone else watch her with Anderson Cooper on New Years Eve? A-Maz-Ing!
  • Sanjaya’s album is finally coming out creepers! This cover art will make your brain-box explode.
  • And finally, my favorite non-TV related link of the week: Instructables.com. This handy site will teach you how to do just about anything. Unrelated: This week my mom helped me sew up my very own Slanket (some of you may know it better as the Snuggie). Best invention ever. Make it yourself. It’s cheaper and you get to pick a cooler fabric.

Kathy Griffin took home her second Emmy for Best Reality Program for her hit show, My Life on the D-List.

Her speech was low on controversy this year but still gave the crowd a few sassy remarks.

Griffin is coming off an amazing week as she just added an unprecedented 4th show at the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles after the first three nights sold out!

Still on the D-List? That’s going to be a tough argument these days.

PS: Loving her new hair cut! It was looking a little ragged during My Life… this year.

When I heard the latest episode of Intervention highlighted a young woman abusing computer duster I laughed out loud. I know inhalants are serious business, (in fact, I’m still a little shaken by that video we watched in 8th grade where the kid died in the bathroom at the movie theater after trying them once).

But computer duster? Come on. How bad could she be? Oh it’s bad people. Really bad. Borderline tragic. The slurred speech, the missed opportunities, the shifting eyes. This woman is inhaling so much computer cleaner her lungs may very well explode.

Forget Home Makeover, this is probably the show that will trump Kathy Griffin at the Emmy’s this year. They do an amazing job. You can check out the rest of the episode on YouTube as well.

I caught the first annual Bravo A-List Awards tonight. It was flamboyant, funny, a little yuppie and full of advertisements…basically it was like every other Bravo show ever.

Kathy Griffin hosted, but even on an award show that no one’s really taking seriously, she didn’t get to cut loose. The crowd (surprisingly B-List considering the occasion) didn’t seem to get a lot of the jokes.

The awards were a little confusing. They weren’t necessarily awards for Bravo shows, TV shows or entertainment in general. They gave out awards for A-List designers, restaurants, best ass, and a few acting awards. It’s like they picked out some categories from a be-dazzled hat and decided to run with it. It was an hour and a half episode of Stuff White People Like.

The only upside to so many random awards is that some folks who don’t usually get nominated for anything walked away with wins. Three cheers for Dana Delaney (Desperate Housewives) and Rainn Wilson (The Office) who finally got the credit they deserved.

So what’s my five word review of tonight’s show:

Meh. Better than Housewives re-runs.

Is anyone else glad Kathy Griffin is back in heavy rotation? The fourth season of her Emmy winning show returns next week and she just hosted the first annual A-List Awards on Bravo.

She appeared on the Today Show this morning to promote both programs and in between pleasantries and one-liners, Kathy “all-up-on” Al Roker. It’s about time someone did it. Lord knows we’ve all been tempted.

You can check out the whole thing on Defamer.

You’re welcome.
