December 2008 Archives
While there are a slew of mandatory Christmas and holiday themed episodes out there, we're convinced that some of the best TV personalities have hearts that are three sizes too small. We bet they'd even discourage kids from having visions of sugar plums. While we love that they speak their minds, this time of year, we're hoping someone is able to soften their tough veneers.
It is a slow news week out there in TV land and I just can't bring myself to talk about Speidi and their non-wedding in any depth. That's why we've got awesome recappers. But in poking around the wilds of the internet, I spotted these two treats, that I thought you all may enjoy. Especially if you are in desperate need of a wrapping break, or a family break.
I just found out that Neil Patrick Harris, who goes by St. Neil around these parts, will be hosting Saturday Night Live when the show returns on January 10th. This is the best thing I've heard about that show since Jon Hamm started hawking John Hams. Any regular readers will know that I think the erstwhile Doogie Howser and current Barney Stinson can do no wrong. Especially if he's singing!
Ah, regifting. Taking the unwanted presents you receive from well-meaning but misguided people and giving them to someone else who might appreciate them. One person's trash is another's treasure... or so they say. We'd love to do the same thing for our favorite TV shows. We've got a list of characters who should be boxed, wrapped, tied with a bow and shipped off to other shows. It would make so many series so much more enjoyable. Everyone wins. Mostly.
The SAG Award nominees were announced today, and I was trying to feign disinterest because of that whole strike/not strike thing that I'm trying really hard to pretend isn't happening because if I lose out on more TV, there's going to be lots of hell to pay. Anyway, whether or not they decide to strike is irrelevant to these nominations, I suppose, but it's time for actors to give themselves a little pat on the back. I find it hard to get riled up about these, because they aren't the Emmys... or even the Golden Globes, but I do sort of like the ensemble award, so there's that.
