Really boring for most of the season, much better by the end. I liked the Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Turtle story line.
The Life and Times of Tim
Not sure why I kept watching this. It had its moments but the first 15 minutes were all anyone really needed to watch of this show.
Summer Heights High
I blew this show off at first. I lumped this in unfairly with Little Britain USA which I gave about 2 minutes of my time. But Mitch implored me to watch it and now I'm hooked. It is definitely a show that my late friend Terry Crummitt would have adored. I can picture him imitating all three of the main characters.
I even have a picture of Terry that reminds me of the above photo.
Countdown With Keith Olbermann
The Rachel Maddow Show
The Daily Show
The Colbert Report
I've gotten to the point where I only watch the first three minutes of Olbermann. If I have time, I'll watch all of Maddow. I love her. Jon Stewart is hit or miss but I like checking in. Colbert is more poised to stay really funny during the Obama administration and am continually amazed at the brilliance of his character. The DVR is a magical device. I tend to watch all of these shows while doing other things.
Spectacle: Elvis Costello With ...
The jury is still out but everything seems a bit awkward thus far. Maybe it is because in the first two episodes, Elton John sat really weird during the entire show and Lou Reed is such a prick.
The 3rd episode features Bill Clinton and I'm afraid that there will be a bit of ex prez sax blowing. I wonder if Arsenio will show up too.
On another note, I almost reconsidered how much I dislike the latest Jenny Lewis LP when I saw her good performance with Elvis on Letterman the other night. But SHR reminded me that that song is the only good one on the album.
Not a very good season.
This show is finally showing some wear and tear. Since Amy Ryan has left the show, it really doesn't know where it's heading. Bringing back Ryan as a temp was funny for a spell but kind of old now. I still love this show but it is a bit hit or miss thus far this season.
Speaking of hit or miss.
The Sarah Silverman Program
This show is played out. Give Steve and Brian their own show and be done with it.
Oh yeah, I gave Life on Mars and Fringe each about half an hour.
