One TV show we love, one we like and two we've never heard of hit shelves today. We're sure they all have their reasons for releasing on December 29th, especially since their new seasons are as much as a few months away, but damned if we know what they are. We almost considered listing some anime releases here to fill things out, but those things all blur together for us now. Our otaku days are behind us, sadly.
I'm trying not to get too personal or gossipy in today's TWoP news. Let's see how long that lasts.
During a phone press conference last Thursday, Jane Lynch (that's Sue Sylvester to you!) spoke with reporters about Glee and her hopes for its future. The Golden Globe nominee for Best Supporting Actress told reporters that her role is helpful to her emotional well-being, "I always say, 'When I put on that track suit I have a license to say anything I want. I think it's probably very good therapy."
This is a glimpse into the Emmys of the future.
Well, let's just say we damned well better get another season of My Boys after all of this.
After Week 1's pretty terrible Amy Poehler episode and Week 2's disastrous Bryan Cranston episode, SNL started to find its way back with Jane Lynch this weekend. It wasn't exactly a stellar episode, but they at least made a better effort to use Lynch effectively (unlike how they just stripped Cranston down to his underwear and shoved him in a corner all episode long last week), and there were a couple honest-to-god highlights. Still not convinced Jay Pharoah should be working in this format, and I'm baffled as to why Bill Hader's been but a minor presence so far, but it was only the third episode of the season, so I digress. Here are the best and worst sketches of the night:
Time to find out who the first Saturday Night Live host of the new decade is! Surely it's somebody timely, right? Somebody hip and now? Sadly, no.
The curtains are finally closing on Wisteria Lane.
Good news, everyone: We're about to get a whole lot more True Blood, Glee, and 15-year-olds!
For fans of all things weird and uninvited, we have Bronson Pinchot (Perfect Strangers' cousin Balki) and Levi Johnston in today's TV news...with that bizarre opener, now you have no choice but to read on...
