Apparently, This is Offensive

But, I'm more excited cause Kumail, an awesome local New York Comic, is in it:

He's the second dude to be asked his name. He's got two lines! Congrats pal!

PS - Um, what happened to SNL's writing? Whew, hit it with the Palin thing last week and now nose diving to sketches that just go too long. My friend Gina put it best, "I watched SNL Saturday...where's the funny?"

Oh America, You Watch Such Crap

Really? You watched Kim Kardashin's ass rather than Heroes last night.

Heroes was so freakin' good it would've melted your face off, is that why? You can't handle outstanding original story lines and really great acting.
I'm sorry but last night's return of Heroes was fun. It was two hours of television worth watching.
I'm at least happy to see that after a long summer hiatus from great network drama Heroes returned with an actual plot and characters I look forward to watching.

Also, this was the season to start watching as it's really heating up. The idea that it's called Villains was less appealing than watching people try to ballroom dance? Oh America, you used to enjoy action.

I sigh heavily and hope that NBC keeps this amazing season going cause for the love of God it was a good return.

Also, can someone please tell the Cheerleader that if you can be upset about not feeling pain, you're still human because you have emotion. That really bugged me last night. Everything else those, stellar.

Get into it people:

Scrubs wins "Best Music"

In my personal award ceremony which is me on the couch, eating cheese and saying aloud to my cats, "Scrubs has the best musical integration of any comedy series I've ever seen."

And I figured I should back up this claim with some examples.
First we've got guest musicians, and when I say guest musicians, really it's Colin Hayes appearance I speak of, because it's awesome:

Then we've got the Turk's proposal to Carla, which has the Old 97's singing one of my favorite songs:

And, the most recent clip that I watched that really drove home how great they are with integrating music:

So congrats to Scrubs on me saying that about your music.
As you can see, the Funke awards are the least formal award event. In fact, I'm writing this in my sweat pants.

Stephen Schnetzern Resurfaces My Love of "Another World"

Are you even old enough to remember Another World?
It was an NBC soap opera that ran from 1965 - 1999. (Not to be confused with The Cosby Show spin off, A Different World.)
It was also always the lesser soap opera in my mind, for it paled in comparison to it's back-to-back buddy Days of Our Lives (I mean Marlena was a freakin' demon people.)

Another World had one good thing about it, Cass. He was the male voice of reason on the show. This is part of the reason my mother and I loved him so, but the root of our love for him was his voice.

Cass was played by Stephen Schnetzern, and though you might not have seen for nearly a decade, you've heard his voice. He does car commercials, drug commercials...I hear his voice quite often. I'm always pretty sure, but never a hundred percent.

But tonight, I was validated. While watching SVU (seriously, it's almost always on.) all of the sudden dear ole Cass/ Stephen Schnetzern walks on plugging Aleve.

Good for you Stephen Schnetzern for still getting work. It's very good to hear :)

Fun Facts I learned while researching this article:
-Stephen Schnetzern is a Gemini with Capricorn rising, same as Paul Newman (interested?)
-Some ladies on the forums at SoapNet think he's "gotten even sexier.. if that's possible!"
-I have way too much free time on my hands

Britney Introducing the VMA's...

was better than last year's debacle.
She's still a Micky Mouse Club comedic actress.

I apologize to loyal readers, and thank you for your mail, even though you were pissed I wasn't updating.
My good pal and writing partner Joe Powers was in an accident. He's doing better day-by-day, life goes on, and well, he harped on me to start this blog in the first place, so I hope to be back to regular posting this week.

News on Mad Men and more on the VMA's and other TV dirt soon to follow.

For now though, please go enjoy some comedy from comedian Joe Powers

...for the record, I am wooing for the LOVE of America's Funniest Home Videos.
