Poor Carson Daly

Uncategorized No Comment

He’s either left out of the discussion completely or being made fun of. I’ve never seen the show but he’s always seemed like a nice enough guy. Except on TRL, didn’t he paint his fingernails?

I thought I’d be nice and post a clip from his show. If it wasn’t too hard to find, I was going to post a good clip. He’s on NBC so I went to Hulu to track one down. He’s not on Hulu! Is it not worth the encoding?

Next stop what the show’s NBC site. Right there in the title is ‘Watch online for free.’ Score. Bill Simmons was on last night. Double score. I just have one question. Where are the videos? I found a link to carsondaly.tv but that hasn’t been updated in over a week. Turns out, he is in reruns this week and next. If I were him I’d still show up everyday so they don’t forget about him and fire him.

I give up. The only video on YouTube I found worth clicking was for an interview with Chelsea Handler, but the audio was off. Carson needs to write his own letter saying that he gets no respect.

Jimmy Leno

Uncategorized No Comment

Kimmel did his entire show as Leno last night. He seemed to have him down. Cleto had Kevin Eubanks down. Even Chevy Chase caused a chuckle with his Conan hair. Elisha Cuthbert seemed a little uneasy trying to balance a real interview with Jimmy still doing his Leno.

The whole episode won’t be up forever on Hulu, so you can see that here. Here is the opening, the rest of the clips are on Kimmel’s YouTube.

My Conan Thought

Uncategorized No Comment

Everyone has one, why can’t I?

How about Conan goes to Fox at 11? Starting about the time American Idol goes to Hollywood. Musical guests on Conan are people voted off of Idol. Huuuuge ratings right off the bat. That should bring all sorts of new viewers. After Idol you still have the old Conan fans plus some of those Idol fans will get hooked.

Here at 11 on Fox, Seinfeld is on. I’m sure that would be a tragic loss (it probably still gets decent ratings), but if you love Seinfeld that much at this point, you have the DVDs.

I’m not sure how 11 would work otherwise. Time doesn’t matter too much, really. Conan argued that but I imagine that was more because NBC was insulting him. I’d catch it on Hulu like I do The Tonight Show now.

What is the best Simpsons toy?

Question of the Day No Comment

Watching the Simpsons 20th Anniversary special they visited a few super fans who have filled their houses with Simpsons stuff. I was trying to think of the one toy that I’d want. I wanted it to be something a little unique but not too obscure. It also had to be a cool looking toy.

I came up with “The Homer”. The car Homer designed for his brother’s car company. I think I found a kit on a site for around $35. I’ll have to do some more looking. Found this image on the Wikipedia page

Kimmel Explains Late Night

Uncategorized No Comment

Finally, someone clears things up …

Later he did audience Q&A and Carson Daly was in the audience to ask what would happen to his show. Carson’s best work in, well, ever.

Triumph goes to the spa

Uncategorized No Comment

I’m just not creative enough to make up my own job. I need to spend some time in LA. I also don’t get how NBC could possibly want to move Leno back even if it meant losing Conan. Has anyone at NBC watched the two shows? Conan may not be a laugh riot, but Leno is just uncomfortable to watch.

Catch your friends off guard in May

Mike, TV No Comment

Martin Short stopped by Letterman to sing a lovely Christmas song about … suicide. Hilarious.

Jay-Z Who?

Mike, TV 1 Comment

Last night’s Colbert was great (maybe the greatest?). Alicia Keys was the guest. She sang her version of Empire State of Mind. As much as I should hate that song it is darn catchy. Her version didn’t have the beat so I wasn’t really hooked. I almost skipped over it on the DVR. Then Stephen came out and … you just have to watch his greatness.

Obama Chia Pet on Kimmel

Mike, TV No Comment

Kimmel visits the barbershop once again to discuss the Obama Chia Pet. I’m confused what the bald white guy is doing in the barbershop.
