Mea Culpa of the Week: After calling for his dismissal on more than one occasion, we feels it’s only fair to give credit where credit is due. Not only did Fred Armisen’s hilarious impersonation of Governor David Patterson on this weekend’s SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE manage to keep us from reaching for the fast forward button. He genuinely had us ROTFL (Rolling on the floor laughing).
Disappointment of the Week: In theory, Stephanie (special guest star Sara Rue) using sex to distract Leonard from breaking up with her on THE BIG BANG THEORY sure seemed like a funny idea. Too bad the reality of using (or withholding) sex to get what you want played out like one of the oldest (and least funny) sitcom tropes in the book.
Emmy Bait of the Week: Following last Monday’s surprisingly emotional performance by one Chuck Bass. We’d like to say six words we never thought we’d associate with GOSSIP GIRL. For Your Emmy Consideration: Ed Westwick.
Depressing News of the Week: Whether you love him or loathe him, one thing is abundantly (or is it depressingly?) clear with regards to NBC’s surprising deal to award Jay Leno the weeknights at 10PM slot. Network television will never be the same. Especially if you’re anything like us, and happen to be a fan of the traditional hour long drama.
Comedy Duo of the Week: After delivering yet another hilarious installment of THE NEW ADVENTURES OF OLD CHRISTINE theTVaddict.com would not only like to officially crown Christine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and Barb (Wanda Sykes) the new Queens of Comedy. But concur with Entertainment Weekly by proclaiming OLD CHRISTINE the new WILL & GRACE.
