  • Everything Bad is Good For You

    Parents can sometimes be appalled at the hypnotic effect that television has on toddlers; they see their otherwise active and vibrant children gazing silently, mouth agape at the screen, and they assume the worst: that television is turning their child into a zombie. The same feeling arises a few years later when they see their…

  • Best Season of Survivor Ever

    Survivor’s 20th season was?undoubtedly?it’s best because it showed the game of Survivor is still misunderstood by most people who play it, giving people who do a huge advantage. ? This season also asked (and answered!) some great questions. Did Sandra deserve to win? I think Parvati should have won, but Sandra certainly deserved to win.…

  • Hole in the Wall

    What the? This is actually coming to the US, too!

  • Amanda

    Is Amanda Kimmel the most tragically flawed Survivor player? She spent 78 days in China and Mironesia without ever getting voted off, but no million dollar prize. She has the strongest social game of any player I can think of, but can’t communicate the worthiness of that skill to the jury. The players who voted…

  • More TV Show Themes

    I also really liked this versions of the Gummi Bears theme by Into It / Over It And I know everyone secretly has wondered to themselves, “What would it sound like if Stacy Brown sang the Mr Belvedere theme?” Well we are in luck (She’s hiding behind the piano). See the rest here.

  • Auction House

    I’m really sorry I bailed out of the Auction House gig at the last minute.? I got tied up at work and wasn’t able to make it out.? I will be playing at their next theme night on April 17th and the theme is TV theme songs.

  • Free Radio

    Most trends are easy to spot in hindsight, so now it definitely seems as though fake-realism has overtaken situational comedy as shown on the Office, Colbert, Ali-G, etc. The latest in this trend is VH1’s Free Radio, starring Lance Krall and Anna Vocino as a pair of radio talk show DJ’s who take over after…

  • Happy Days

    When I was a kid and watched Happy Days, I honestly didn’t realize it was a retro-show. I thought it was filmed in the 50s and reflected the times. That makes me feel somewhat moronic.

  • Sopranos Finale

    Note:? It’s been weeks since I first watched the last episode of the Sopranos and I’ve been working on this post forever.? It’s taken me forever to write it and I may edit it later, but for now, here it is! Journey? At this point I have to take a second look at everything I’ve…

  • Lebron on SNL

    I loved this skit, if only because the glove box on my car is stuck down.

  • TV Shows Broken By Time

    As society moves on, some of our beloved television shows can’t move with it. Culture and technology conspire to break sitcom plots every day. Is there any way to fix them? Here are a few examples: My Two Dads Premise: A woman dies leaving her daughter in the dark about who her real father is.…

  • Guys are Dumb

    If a random good looking female asked you to buy her $80 shoes, would you do it? The Young Turks did an experiment to find out. Unbelievable.

  • Rude Awakening of Optimus Prime

    This is one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen. But it’s probably only funny if you’ve watched Transformers.

  • Simpsonize Me

    As a promotion for the new Simpsons Movie, you can turn yourself into a Springfieldian using Simpsonize Me. Evidently a ton of people have been using it and clogging up the tubes, so be patient. I finally got it to work this morning and with the help of GIMP I made this scene of my…

  • RIP Mr Wizard

    Mr Wizard passed away at 89. Three of his experiments are absolutely burned into my mind. 1. Boiling water in an enclosed container will cause it to explode. 2. An experiment where he had a kid try to suck water through a straw several stories high. 3. Obviously: Ping pong balls and mouse traps.

  • Jeopardy Three Way Tie

    I’m a big Jeopardy fan and I can’t believe they had a three way tie on Friday (I just watched the episode). I don’t understand why the champion didn’t bet one dollar more to make sure his winnings would cover the other guys’ maximum bets. When a tie occurs on Jeopardy, the players return back…

  • Arcade Fire on SNL

    Rainn Wilson (Dwight from The Office) hosted a lackluster episode of SNL last night, but Arcade Fire rocked in all their surprising guitar smashing glory. Supposedly the band played an impromptu concert for the live audience after the credits rolled.Want to to know why Arcade Fire ran off the stage during the closing credits of…

  • Sloths!

    This was the very last skit on SNL the other night and it’s fantastic.

  • Cole Hamels married Survivor Amazon’s Heidi Strobel

    Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels just got married to Survivor Amazon’s Heidi Strobel.Another Phillies pitcher, Cole Hamels, is having better luck. He and new wife Heidi Strobel barely had time to recover from honeymoon jet lag before flying off to Clearwater, Fla., for spring training the other day. Theirs will be a commuter marriage for a…
