    That sux! I had to get rid of my direct tv a few months ago because it wouldnt work here.

  • Josh Emerson

    Hey, I like Cook’s song! Might not be the greatest song ever, but he’s still far better than Archie. Archie’s song is good, but have you seen the awful new video for it?

  • John K.

    SPORTS NIGHT! At first I thought this was silly because it was already released on DVD and I own it, but this is a special edition with deleted scenes, featurettes, a gag reel and audio commentaries with the cast and crew! I must buy it now!

    David Cook’s single is a MAJOR disappointment. All the hype from RCA leading up to its release had one thinking it was gonna be something original – heck, in a recent Rolling Stone blurb, Cook even made comparisons to the material on this upcoming album to U2′s The Joshua Tree and The Beatles White album… such hubris is deserving of scorn after listening to what clearly is a Cornell laced throwaway… I would much rather have Cornell singing it – then we’d have an authentic release from an authentic rocker.
