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.

Steve Carell signed on for three-more years of The Office. Let’s talk about the implications of this:

  • I love the show, so this is great news. Dunder-Mifflin wouldn’t work without Michael Scott.
  • Even with a solid movie career (Dan In Real Life? Really buddy?) Carell is sticking by his bread and butter. See Katherine Heigl? That’s class.
  • Again, don’t get me wrong, I love this show. But three more years? NBC already ordered 30 episodes next year. If that format works, they’re going to do it again. I just don’t think there’s room in my heart for what could be 90+ hours of The Office. I want it to stay fresh and fun. I just don’t know if they can keep up that pace for three more years.

Any thoughts people? I want this to work, but a little part of me is really hesitant. Maybe the spin-off will open up a lot of comic opportunities and new storylines for the original cast too.
