Daily Picks For Friday, May 23, 2008

by Lauren Gitlin May 23, 2008 6:00 am
Today's a good day to kill people.As you'll remember from reading our Moviefile post on the subject, the classic horror flick Night of the Living Dead (EACT, 4:40 PM) celebrates its fortieth anniversary this year. Pull down the shades and creep the hell out of yourself. Then go out and eat some unsuspecting humans.

This year's Idol finale and its attendant fanfare was inexplicably grandiose (George MichaeI? I mean MY GOD), and I admit that even I sort of flipped my shit when they announced Cook was the winner. So I'm marginally interested in seeing how dude handles himself on Larry King Live (CNN, 9 PM), especially considering ol' LK will probably have no idea who he is. OH, and Li'l Mormon will be in attendance too.

Long before I ever saw the classic Jack Lemmon comedy How To Murder Your Wife (TCM, 8 PM), my mom told me stories about the scene where Lemmon fantasizes about dumping his wife into a "Gloppitta-Gloppitta Machine" (i.e. cement mixer). This might explain my irrational fear of cement mixing trucks. Thanks, Mom!

I defy you to find someone funnier or more generally awesome than cross-dressing British comedian (and star of the underrated F/X show The Riches) Eddie Izzard. Watch two of his stand-up specials, Dressed To Kill (BBC America 8 PM) and Glorious (BBC America 9 PM) back to back. If you're still not convinced, I will buy you a sandwich.

Celebrity crackers in my soup! Britney and Lindsay loop the loop! Did you like that song? I made it just for you in honor of this week's installment of tabloid chat-fest The Soup (E! 10 PM) starring my latest crush object, one Joel McHale.
