I'm Ready for Pushing Daisies to Come Back


So I will admit, the TV strike was a little nice to me. Finally I didn't have 14 shows to TiVo and find time to watch every single week and I could actually get some stuff done. How much did I actually GET done? Well, we don't have to talk about that. It was just the idea that I'd be able to get stuff done that made me feel good.

But now I'm beginning to miss my favorites.. Grey's Anatomy, Pushing Daisies, 30 Rock, and now LOST again.. I'm ready for primetime to come back. Even if it is only for a few weeks until we go on summer hiatus again...

And while I'm here, if you haven't ever watched Pushing Daisies.. Check it out when it comes back this Fall on ABC.. It's a great show starring Lee Pace and Kristin Chenoweth, and narrated by Jim Dale (the guy who reads the Harry Potter audio books).

While you're waiting, you can check out full episodes of Pushing Daisies at ABC.com

Enjoy!

Too... Much... Jonas...


I'll be the first to admit that I went to the Hannah Montana/Jonas Brothers concert, and I enjoyed my face off.

But I've gotta say, I have seen/heard a LITTLE too much of the Jonas Brothers lately.. Not only did they do a MASSIVE tour with Miley Cyrus this year already, but they also had their own massive tour in the past few months which included TWO shows here in Dallas. Now they've announced ANOTHER tour for this summer. This tour will include all the cities they've already been to, including Dallas, and no doubt many more.

I get that people like them and they're entertaining, but seriously, let your voices rest guys.

Oh and they were also on Dancing with the Stars tonight and will be on Jimmy Kimmel tomorrow and now the radio apparently wants in on the Jonas action as "Look Me in the Eyes" is played every five seconds. Too much.

I'll put it this way: they definitely just lost their slot in my car CD disc changer.. Time for something new.

Ketchup Please?


Seriously though, all I'm asking for is when I pay McDonald's five bucks for a Happy Meal, for them to give me more than 2, TWO, packets of ketchup and 1, ONE, thing of sweet and sour sauce... That's barely enough for one nugget for me.

Besides, I read that McDonald's opens a new restaurant somewhere in the world every FOUR HOURS. So it's not like they're hurting money-wise..

Adam Hears a Who!


So I finally saw Horton Hears a Who! tonight. And I loved it. I would definitely recommend seeing it. It was pretty hilarious. With Jim Carrey and Steve Carell you really can't go wrong..

Favorite moments were the random Japanese Anime segment and the crazy little girl (when you see it you'll totally understand what I mean).

Was There a Blindfold Involved?

Often times you will see something that prompts you to say "Was there a blindfold involved in this?"

Well I thought this exact thing yesterday when I was sitting at a stop light and looked to the car in front of me. Clearly, the person who owned this Honda Whatchamacallit, was trying to save a little money and install window tinting themselves.
Ladies and Gentlemen I'm here to tell you: this NEVER WORKS.

After I saw it, I thought, "wow, was there a blindfold involved in this?" And then I grabbed my camera and snapped a picture.

Window tinting should be left to the professionals. Besides, what function does this tinting serve when all it is is bubbles? Unless, of course, you are a fish looking to feel a little more at home in this world, but I've yet to encounter that issue..

Usually when you can look at something and respond with the words:
"A monkey could probably do a better job," it means you've got a problem.

I'm just saying...

TV Ratings Are Stupid


So this is a little random, but it just crossed my mind:

Nielsen, the company responsible for putting out TV ratings, gets their statistics by tracking what people are watching, and how old those people are, for 5,000 TVs. In the United States of America, it is estimated that there are.. wait for it.. 99 MILLION homes with TVs in them, not to mention SEVERAL TVs within most homes.

So, maybe it's just me, but that don't make much sense. Basically, about 1,500 people that are tracked by Nielsen have to have American Idol on for them to say that 30 million Americans are watching......

Does this make sense to anyone else??

It's not just because I hate American Idol that I say this, but come on, in the days of TiVo, Internet, and everything else, you'd think there would be a little more accurate way of coming up with those ratings besides tracking 5,000 (probably lame) people.

I'm just saying...

KELLY FOR PREZ


OK so here's the thing: I happen to like Kelly Clarkson. A lot. She was my favorite on the ORIGINAL (and only good) season of American Idol from the beginning, and I have supported her ever since then in all her endeavors. My friends and I even started an impromptu campaign for her to become our next president several years ago when we all attended her concert wearing shirts proclaiming: KELLY FOR PREZ.

Well now, KC has had some tough going and I think it's time that we bring her back.

Now I'm not sure exactly HOW, I'm just saying that it needs to happen.

I guess I just came up with the idea and am relying on someone else to execute it.

But seriously, get to thinking people, she is literally an American Idol... We can't let that fall away.

PS I also really like her VitaminWater: Focus. Try it.

AC Slater FINALLY Makes it to Broadway



If I think back to my childhood days of watching rerun after rerun of Saved By the Bell, I can't help but to remember thinking "This AC Slater guy should really be on Broadway."

Now, at the time, my concept of "Broadway" was still of it being the street a couple blocks away from my house in Texas that McDonald's and Taco Bell (at the time) were on. But now, 10 years later I know what the REAL Broadway is, and that Mario Lopez (AC Slater from Saved By the Bell) is gonna be on it in 42nd Street, and all I can say is:
IT'S ABOUT FREAKING TIME.

Nowadays you can pretty much predict how any and every former TV "star"'s career will go:

1. They'll star in a minor hit on television anywhere from 1-4 years
2. They'll drift into obscurity only to make a minor appearance at a film premiere that has nothing to do with them
3. Someone will see them at that premiere, realize they're still alive, and put a "Wow, remember this dude?" photo of them in US Weekly
4. ABC will see the photo in US Weekly and cast them in Dancing With the Stars
5. The Insider/Access Hollywood/Extra will pick them up as a "Special Dancing with the Stars Correspondent" following their appearance and the show
6. They'll host a minor somehow-dancing-related reality show on a cable station
7. Finally they'll star in a show on Broadway

That just seems to be the way it goes these days. And what do I think about that? Brilliant. I mean if you really think about it, WHO ELSE would they put in these shows? People need more incentive to go see these shows than just talented singers and actors, we need minor C to D list celebrity motivation to fork over that kind of cash. And who better than former Saturday morning television star, Mario Lopez?

Bravo AC Slater, Bravo.
