The “Seriously Adam Lambert? Really?” Edition

  • Speaking of which, Scandalist put together 5 covers of “Ring of Fire” better than his last night.
  • In other Idol chatter, check out some of Paula Abdul’s “poetry.” I thought she’d gone of the deep end this year but it turns out she’s always been this way.
  • Seth Rogen may host SNL in April. Sweet! BTW did you catch SNL on Saturday? Tracy Morgan did a great job and we saw the triumphant return of Astronaut Jones. No new clip, I’m making do with the old ones.
  • Guess who signed on to do a cameo on The Cleveland Show? Sir Kanye!
  • And finally, my favorite non-TV related link of the week: Scanwiches I’ve yet to meet a food Tumblr I didn’t like.

Let’s call this the Grammy Love edition.

  • Jennifer Hudson – She took home the first award of tonight’s telecast and she looked fabulous doing it. Later she performed her guts out and left the stage a little teary. She’s kinda owning the night so far. You go girl!
  • Adele – I’ve been rocking her CD for awhile and it’s A-MAZ-ING. Nice to see her win Best New Artist tonight. Her acceptance speech was genuine and sweet. She also sounded a lot like Kristen Wiig’s Penelope character.

And on the TV side of things:

  • Gaius Charles – A great episode of Friday Night Lights this week. Who didn’t shed a little tear? What a long journey. I get a little breathless just thinking about it.
  • The Office – What a good week for Office fans. Two absolutely wonderful episodes with some of my new favorite one-liners. “Would a liar bring mini Mounds bars?” I think not.

I woke up today super tired. All I could think about was,” Thank heavens it’s Hump Day Update Day.” I love rounding up this stuff.

  • Need to send an e-card to your girl crush/friend who loves popular cable news ladies? Try these Rachel Maddow e-cards out for size.
  • So my birthday is now less than 6 months away. Add this to your shopping list: Mad Men bobblehead dolls! Though I do have to admit, the Joan Holloway doll looks strikingly like Marcia Cross.
  • Gawker’s got the scoop on all of the new pilots the networks just bought. Read all about the shows that will be vying for your eyeballs very soon. I’m pretty optimistic, some of them sound like keepers.
  • SNL got $3 Million bucks to license out MacGruber to Pepsi for their Super Bowl spot! I wish it could’ve been funnier.
  • Kerr Smith (best remembered as Jack from Dawson’s Creek) is not aging well. Sad.
  • According to a judge in Brazil, TV is an essential good. It’s about time someone else got on board my political platform.

Two interesting news stories today involving Mad Men and NBC.

  • Did you know Jon Hamm auditioned for the role of Jack Donaghy on 30 Rock. With the hair and chiseled face I can almost picture it. He wouldn’t have been as spot on as Alec Baldwin though. We’ll still get to see Hamm and Tina Fey together when he joins the cast for a mulitple episode arc. Best worlds ever…COLLIDING!

Its been awhile since we had a big TV weekend hasn’t it? It’s snowy here so the timing is perfect. A little sledding, a little hot chocolate and then hunkering down for the night with some big TV. Here’s what I’m watching:
Tonight: This one is probably only relevant to the fellow Sconnies who read edubTV but a family from Evansville is featured on tonight’s episode of Supernanny. It shook things up in the tiny little town and I am excited to see how the family and Wisconsin gets represented. We looked pretty awesome on Extreme Makeover Home Edition but then again who doesn’t? And for those of you with a Wisconsin connection (who also kind of hate yourselves), Howie Do It premieres tonight.
Saturday: Neil Patrick Harris is hosting the first SNL after the “winter break.” He can sing, he can dance, he’s hilarious, and he’s easy on the eyes. It’s going to be legen…wait for it…dary. Plus I could really use an NPH fix. I’m going through some serious withdrawl following my HIMYM marathon last week.
Sunday: The Golden Globes! Fancy clothes, drunken celebrities, awards for TV and Film? What a lovely way to spend a Sunday evening. In a GG pool? You can check out my TV picks from a few weeks ago.  Hopefully I do better than I did for my Emmy pool. That was a little embarassing.

Anyone catch these pictures cast of How I Met Your Mother re-creating some of the year’s best moments in pop culture in Entertainment Weekly? It’s to die for. These only further confirm my undying love for Neil Patrick Harris.You can check out all of the photos right here.

Speaking of which, NPH is hosting SNL come January 10. It’s going to be lovely and amazing…and I bet they’ll be singing involved.

Pizza high edition.

  • Fran Drescher wants to be a serious contender for the vacant junior Senator seat in New York. Seriously? No really, seriously? This just in: If you have to tell people you’re not joking, your odds of being selected aren’t too good.
  • Want a great way to kick off 2009? How about Hollywood shutting down…again. If SAG can’t come to a deal and 75% of their 120,000 members vote to strike, we’ll lose another great year of TV. Hope for the best but expect the worst.
  • And straight our of my “People’s Kinks Will Never Surprise Me” file: Simpson’s porn. Don’t worry, the link is just a link to an article, not the hardcore stuff in question.
  • Paula Abdul hasn’t slept at her house since a fan shot and killed herself in front of her home. Abdul is trying to sell the home but given the economy and the fact someone died near the front drive, it may be a tough sell.
  • Loved the new SNL digital short. It’s one of the catchiest songs since Umbrella. Downside: It made for a very awkward Daddy/Daughter SNL time.
  • And finally, my favorite non-TV related site of the week: Bus Sign Generator! It’s the simple pleasures.
