I’m trying to develop a new phrase that means “quick and dirty” because I say it a lot when I do this quick. I’ll take any suggestions down yonder in the comments.
Until I get some … it’s quick and dirty today:
It’s nowhere near a comeback since NBC is still light years away from being competitive with anything other than football, but it’s given full-season orders to Revolution, Go On and The New Normal. The only surprise is New Normal, since it loses a big chunk of its Go On lead-in. I’d bet a good amount of money the plan is to move New Normal to Wednesday or Thursday at some point to use Go On’s somewhat sizable audience as a lead-in to any of the new sitcoms NBC will be introducing at midseason.
And that’s not all! HBO has promised that Boardwalk Empire, which just started its third season, will be back for a fourth season next year. Gangsters. They’re so cute.
Uh oh, looks like the population of Sell Out City just increased by one.. Jay Chandrasekhar — you know him as the director of some great sitcoms and the Broken Lizard troupe movies like Beerfest and Super Troopers — has been signed to direct Yogi Bear 2. Hold on a second … OK, I’m back. Had to get that throw-up taste out of my mouth.
Oh, no! There’s that taste again because I just saw this. Then I read this. Probably should have warned this before, but if you’re a die-hard Grease fan, you probably shouldn’t click on either of those links. Maybe you shouldn’t even click on them if you like Grease. Or if you saw it once and smiled at any point during the movie. Those memories will be wiped from your mind, permanently. Charity or not, some people just have to say no.
I can’t imagine that I’m the only Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan having trouble coming to grips with the fact that mocked loser Jonathan is now one of the hottest writers in Hollywood after double Emmy wins and the chance to now write the third Hunger Games movie. It’s weird, right? Now if poor old Andrew can just get a job.
Look everyone, people still buy albums! Only if the album is from a band that should have been more popular on their album, gets a gig on SNL two weeks before the release and somehow seduces every alt station in the country to playing the single once every hour. But at least it’s a good song.
