Oh these were always my favorite days of the week. I’ve been starring things in my Google Reader in anticipation. Let’s roll!

  • Raising Hope is the first show in the class of 2010 to get picked up for new episodes. If you haven’t seen it yet, start watching. It’s good for a few good chuckles an episode.
  • Now everyone, and I mean everyone, thinks Christina Hendricks is hot….and supposedly it’s news.
  • In other Mad Men news, John Slattery is guesting on 30 Rock, which begs the question, when will we get to see Tina Fey at Sterling, Cooper, Draper, Pryce?
  • Awkward Family Photos is the latest blog to get its own TV show. I’d hate on that, but I’m holding out for EdubTV on ABC’s comedy block in 2011.
  • Two attractive, former reality contestants are running a marathon. You heard it here…second or third.
  • In an attempt to save Lone Star, the TV addict whipped up this handy guide for where to find shows online, thus freeing up your TV. It didn’t save Lone Star, but the guide’s still useful.
  • There’s an upcoming episode of The Office where the entire cast is watching Gleebecause they don’t have enough hype. I wish they’d sit around and watch Friday Night Lights.
  • My Favorite Non-TV Related Link Of The Week: I’ve been listening to StoryCorps at work all week. The stories are so authentic and interesting. A few months ago, they released animated versions of a few stories, probably with the sole purpose of making me cry at my desk.

How do I know Tina Fey is a comic genius? She can make me laugh out loud in 140 characters or less.

tina-fey-twitterLove it!

You should follow me (and Tina too) on Twitter. All the cool kids are doing it. And by cool kids I mean the 42 folks I’ve convinced so far.

UPDATE 2/13: Sadly, it’s not Tina Fey’s Twitter. Though even Fey admitted the mystery Tweeter is pretty funny. I will continue to follow whoever it is.

My favorite comedy went three for three in tonight’s Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Tina Fey – Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series

Alec Baldwin – Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series


30 Rock – Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series
Last week’s episode was awesome. I think this 30 Rock award show fever will continue for quite some time.

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!

Yes, I know it’s Tuesday. However, tomorrow is Christmas Eve and I will be half drunk and eating Italian food at the neighbors’, therefore, no time to talk TV. Let’s go ahead and dish now.

  • Diane Sawyer almost lost her shit this morning on Good Morning America over…well…baby shit.
  • So apparently not everyone was pleased with last night’s Prison Break fall finale. I will sit through every episode of PB if it means I get to watch Lincoln bash the heads of random innocents he mistakes for criminals
  • Entertainment Weekly declared The Colbert Report the best show on television this year. Funny? Sure. But the best?
  • So Jenny dies on The L Word next season. The jig is up. The mystery now is who the culprit is.  My vote? Every single person who watches The L Word.

I’ve been looking forward to writing this all day. Let’s not wait any longer.

  • Seth Macfarlane came in at Number 1 on Entertainment Weekly’s list of the 25 Smartest People In Television. He’s a creative and enterprising guy but this still ticks me off a bit.
  • Former Presidential Candidate and wrinkly old man Fred Thompson is returning to TV in a guest-arc on Life on Mars.
  • Sean Avery got kicked out of the NHL indefinitely for referring to his ex-girlfriend Elisha Cuthbert (aka Kim Bauer from 24) as “sloppy seconds” in an interview before a game last week. 24 fans are throwing him a ticker-tape parade.
  • Jeff Lindsay had a guest spot on Dexter this week. He’s the author of the books the show is based on.
  • Dallas and Starr of Amazing Race are in fact dating. They are going to have the greasiest/most media hungry children ever.
  • Hey style mavens: Guess who’s doing a line of shoes and handbags for payless? Our fierce friend Christian Siriano
  • I was fully prepared to ditch my premium channels next month until I saw this clip from the L Word season premiere. Blast! I’m already hooked again.
  • And for those of you with the premiums, FunnyorDie.com is streaming the  season two premiere of Flight of the Conchords on December 17. That’s a few week’s prior to its air date on HBO.
  • And finally, in a three-way tie, My Favorite Non-TV Related Sites of the Week: 1. Phone My Phone: Finally, the internet is using its powers for good…to help me find my cell phone when I’m home alone. 2. Prop 8 The Musical: A little late getting around the internet, but still pretty awesome and finally, for your consideration, a walrus playing a teeny tiny saxophone.

Sarah Palin, the real one, had a guest appearance on last night’s SNL. I thought it missed the mark a bit. She barely said three-dozen words and needed the help of Alec Baldwin, Mark Wahlberg and a lead-in from the funnier, witter version of herself (Tina Fey) to make the sketch float.

I will give her credit though: The woman is campaigning for the second highest office in our country so there’s only so much she can do and say on late night TV and get away with without the media pouncing on her. With that in mind, not half bad.

It was pretty cool to finally see Fey and Palin side by side though, even if it was brief.The resemblance is truly uncanny.

After the cold open, Palin returned during Weekend Update only to be mocked mercilessly…in rap-form no less! Palin’s occasional raising of the roof only sweetened the deal. The verdict on the hip-hop throw down is mixed but I thought it LOL-worthy. Watching Amy Poehler shoot a fake gun and dance wildly while 9-months pregnant will never cease to amaze me.

But the real winner of the night? Will Forte reprising his role as MacGruber.
