Television were on a ‘Marquee Moon’ ride, they almost played the album in its entirety, adding just a few others on the setlist, guiding us through a maze of sophisticated guitar solos and spaced-out sonic convolutions. Their line up may have changed over the years, but Tom Verlaine is still an interesting frontman, tall and thin, he looks young at 65, inspiring coolness and visibly not interested by stage antics.

Hmmm, Letterman has Bill Murray and they are always fun together, that might well be the pick of the week. Or how about Minnie Driver who has a not terrible new album just released> Melissa Etheridge? Jessie J? Neon Trees? I’m gonna go with Rusell Brand because the guy is a spitfire who says whatever he likes always.

Say Anything, Dum Dum Girls, Bleached, Shannon And The Clams, and Best Coast… just another week on the carson Daley Show where the former MTV wunderkind continues to present the same thing as everyone else and then a little more. It was carson who aired that terrific Screaming Females segment a couple of months ago. The ringer here is the terrific 50s inspired doo woppy meets garage Shannon And The Clams.

I haven’t been to Las Vegas since 1975 so maybe next year I should do it. I wanna see the Beatles “Love”, Britney’s solo show and this the second Michael Jackson-Cirque De Soliel collaboration. I skipped the first show when it played MSG and I kinda regret it. On Letterman on Thursday I can take a a look at # 2.

Smokey Robinson on the Talk. A crap show but daddy, it’s Smokey. But I’m just messing with you, Barbra Streisand on Fallon, her first Late Night Appearance in FIFTY YEARS (except for a cameo on Letterman in 94) in support of the dreaded Partners, towers over the week.

Sure, Peggy Bundy, why not? I know you know her from “Sons Of Anarchy” and I’ll take Katey Sagall either way and it is always a pleasure to see her: the ultimate MILF of all time. Meanwhile, why are Spoon on Bill Maher? Alt-J on Conan, not really worth the effort is it? ellen has a busy week, not just the crowd from The Voice but also Iggy And Ora!!

The best act of the week is once again on Jimmy Fallon although I’ve just about had enough of him (our local morning news feels obligated to blast his ‘funniest bit’ over and over on the hour)he scored the coolest chick in music, Chrissie Hynde.

But the truth is peppered in with same old same olds like Keith Urban we have a band that just a short while ago was playing a 200 person venue in Hartford Connecticut (psst we were there). Fabulous news and faith in humanity semi restored (not really). Happy new week!

We should be headed in to the days of reruns soon-but until then late night TV is alive and well and …well awful. Foster The People and Neon Trees? Proving that we are too tired and too distracted to care what we watch anyway.

I gotta say this is one of the most diverse weeks ever and almost all of the shows are repeats. the Strypes, Frank Turner, Broken Bells are just a few of the more interesting weeks I have seen in a long time. Oh it still sucks but not as hard as weeks past.

Holy mother of Peace Train I take that all back, hands up for Jimmy Fallon who comes in with the one and only Yusef Islam on the 8th, showing up 2 days before his day at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Tuesday’s not dead.

I could sit here and whine about how no ‘good’ musical guests are ever on television but I’d be writing that to people who actually watch shows like The Voice or American Idol so my though is some of you are actually excited to see some of the acts sitting on the late night couches.

Truth is its still freezing here in the North East and there is no end in site. Its the point where we begin to question if it will ever get warmer. In keeping with this big chill we have a television line up as icy as a corpse.

appears that Craig Ferguson is the winner with Panic! At The Disco. I still cant wrap my arms around the Brenden Urie Panic! There were three other members who added a whole heck of alot of personality. It almost seems as if it shouldn’t be called PATD at all.

This is the time of year when depression moves in like your drunk uncle and it wont leave until the first worm shows up in the driveway. Until then there isn’t much to do but watch TV, read Twitter and bitch- which is pretty much all I do anyway.

Guys guys!! Remember when Pearl Jam were cool? “Jeremy spoke..” and all that jazz? Remember how brutally hot Eddie Vedder was? That dude was smoking crazy hot. Jumping off amps in his plaid and fatigue glory. That hair, that underbite.. daaaaaaaaaaaaamn.

Well at least Moby isn’t on…Selena and Ariana and all the other Disney princesses are and Ellen has a few good ones but, nah. This holiday week is a weak one. I think the reruns are out of control and with some of them almost a year old they could potentially feel like new

All of this sounds so incredible, and very doable. Being a huge fan of the trilogy, Bowie is a perfect fit for Lecter’s uncle. The chemistry would be there, and it would flow really well. Mikkelsen, who plays Hannibal, could very much pass for Bowie’s nephew

Those few people that I encounter that are fans of The Wanted, generally are not my demographic. Uptight white suburban girls who enjoy irking their parents seem to be the majority- They’re cute I suppose but musically, Im simply never going to ‘get it’.

How exactly does he intend on making singers more genuine? What the hell is he on about? So basically this is Diddy TV where he and his friends can self pleasure and we can watch. Simple as that. I have a funny feeling theres gonna be a lot of infomercials

That fluffy headed guy from the legendary band Queen ended up being one of the coolest dudes ever. Brian May is an absurdly educated, animal and social activist who is not only articulate but forthright in his strong opinions and beliefs.

Check it out there is NOTHING on Thursday. After all of my years of doing this its the first time there were no musical guests listed for a day. That is actually a blessing this week considering that Bret Michaels is everywhere

Do you think we will have to endure Zooey at 40 doe eyed and well.. quirky. See there is no other descriptive for her shes a one trick pony. This She and Him thing periodically produces something memorable but for the most part its a rather blase white noise best suited to background music at some Starbucks or organic farmers market.

We’re finally in the home stretch. Seriously, we did pretty good this year covering Saturday Night Lives musical nonsense. Not much to pant over. Only a few horrible acts and well, I suppose when all is said and done no damage was made.

Generic as a single name can be he has been with Jive Records since 2007, since he is only 26 that’s a semi big deal. The problem is he doesn’t have the ‘it’ factor. Hes not handsome enough to be a pin up, not talented enough to forge a path and his tune “Adorn” is more annoying than entertaining.

I love Jimmy Fallon so I have to say that the Tonight Show heading to NYC is pretty rad. I think Leno was just too old and out of touch for the world. I mean really enough with the car shit. Fallon is friends with Justin Timberlake, need we say more? No. So congrats JF! Its gonna be a long wait til you take over.

Cher is 66 years old.  There has been more gossip and scandal about this woman within her decades of fame.  From being ‘kept’ by Sonny to ‘the bagel boy’ there is always some sort of hot story about the ‘half breed’ (that’s all she ever heard).
