BEST EPISODE OF THE WEEK: SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE
Who’d have thought the man responsible for bringing the funny back to SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE would be esteemed NBC News anchor Brian Williams. From his on-the-nose opening monologue to his surprisingly excellent impersonation of a New York firefighter — Williams was all class. And more importantly, ensured SNL’s final pre-strike installment was one to remember.
SPIN-OFF IDEA OF THE WEEK: GREY’S ANATOMY
Forget the rumored OFFICE spin-off and the continuously disappointing PRIVATE PRACTICE. Following Thursday’s episode of GREY’S ANATOMY, the spin-off this TV Addict is hankering for is called THE BOY’S CLUB. Starring the far more entertaining and slightly more mature generation of Seattle Grace Doctors.
Just imagine. McDreamy, McSteamy, Dr. Hahn and the Chief without the incessant whining of Meredith Grey and the nauseating Gizzie relationship. That’s 50 cc’s of awesome. [As I pretend to know exactly what a 'cc' is]
BONE-HEADED MOVE OF THE WEEK: ABC
First I missed the ending of SAMANTHA WHO because ABC decided to run it past 10PM. Next the ending of Thursday’s GREY’S ANATOMY. ABC take note. Making your shows run long isn’t going to fool me into watching the dreadfully disappointing BIG SHOTS or whatever follows SAMANTHA WHO. It’s simply going to make me mad. Do you really want an angry TV Addict?
AND THE EMMY GOES TO: Michael C. Hall
If you’re not watching Michael C. Hall take television’s most delicious character to new depths, you’re missing out on one of the best performances of the season. Don’t make the same mistake twice. Tune into a brand new episode of DEXTER tonight at 9PM on Showtime. Rumor has it that an angry DEXTER is almost as bad as an angry TV Addict!
