You’ll notice that Jimmy Kimmel is still not gracing my list. That’s because he is redneck filth and has not redeemed himself after the Morrissey bit. He can go find a new job now or find a way to make amends.

What the heck!? This is a weird week with virtually no good news on the musical front. There is Garbage, there is Kesha and there is Macklemore and Ray Lewis…
The worst seems to be about Wallace himself, who will appear in spirit to offer his guidance to his kids and the musical guests! Wallace’s children will voice their characters and the show will feature original songs from guest stars, and will even re-imagine Wallace’s own songs.
Justin Timberlake comes to New York for Saturday Night Live and stays the week with his pal Jimmy Fallon, This is the show to watch this week cuz when these two get together its a riot. There isnt much else. Musical guests are becoming a rarity.
At 32 years old he has become legendary- is that possible? Of course it is! Considering this kid was in the Mickey Mouse Club with Brittany Spears. Anyone remember when they were an item?
But wait there is redemption. Little John! I freaking love that guy with his grill and shades. I love how his look completely contradicts his intellect. This is no moron thug, this guy is sharp as a tack and a fabulous on fast thinker. My hope is that he wins the season- cuz he’s cool and no one else is.
Something missing? Yup. Starting this week Jimmy Kimmel is no longer included in my roster of what’s on for the week. I see no reason in promoting anything for someone who proved themselves to be such rancid scum. Go find your program guide if you’re interested cuz he’s dead to me.
cuz if the boy be grabbin’ his junk n all Imma be like yo wut up doe. So we shall see. I’m on the fence. Don’t fake your accent don’t fake your ‘hoodrat’ or seriously, there is nothing worse than a wigger, dig?
I suppose after weeks of yuck we deserved it but this really is note worthy. Considering there isn’t much new material wise the guests chosen are pretty dang fabulous.
So when SNL attempt to jams garbage like The Lumineers up my butt I take it as a personal insult. Look, I know how fabulous it USED to be- don’t try to serve me this lifeless sludge now.
Hey was it something I said? There are so few musical guests this week that Im honestly stunned. It is estrogen week though considereing Lisa Loeb, Kesha and Dido, hell, wheres the Indigo Girls? If ever there was a week to get some sleep or to maybe actually go out and see a live band this is it!
I do like Alabama Shakes, they are an old fashioned Southern style rock band with a great song “Hold On’ that shakes, rattles and rolls like the Black Crowes meets Janis Joplin and a John Popper lookalike lead singer who is kinda hard to take your eyes off in Brittany Howard.
I am a victim of this. I get caught up in some of the worse programs and they do keep getting worse. I can assure you I will at least catch a glimpse of the Travel Chanels new offering.
Personally I like Jimmy Fallons impersonation of Bieber better than Bieber but I’m just that way. The limping Saturday Night Live has grabbed this kid as host and musical guest in hopes of…….anything
Well then lets face it kids its the week of the BIEB! Justin Bieber will be hamming it up with Jimmy Fallon (who does an awesome impression!!) and then.. dun dun dun.. he will host and musical guest Saturday Night Live!!
Minaj and A$AP Rocky? Hey wait are A$AP and Ke$ha related? Cuz that’d be cray. Aside from Yo La Tengo its blunt smoking ghetto ass Tuesday..hollah!
She is a Vegas Goddess with a huge gay following. She’s basically the patron saint of gay men. Sure theres Brittany and Madonna but Cher is second only to Liza Minelli as the drag queens super hero.
I was so optimisitc a few weeks ago when we had lots of fun band to watch but nah, its back to the same old crap. Im tellin ya there is a great need for proper music on television and by golly someone needs to come through.
behind the scene recording scenes and also images of culture that made Quadrophenia the classic it’s become. Footage with multiple screens of world events ranging from WW2 through today, a flashy gif sort of thing. Themes of disillusionment, teen angst and rebellion, plus social issues. This of course delivered by (now) 70 year old deaf men
In this one episode Nugent shot an orynx…which is extinct. This is a good example of how idiotic Discovery was for not fact checking and how much of a tool Nugent is for doing it in the first place.
I would say this is a good time to go out and hit your local clubs but that may be tough since Christmas is sitting on a Tuesday this week- the scene is dead, buried in gift wrap and tinsel.
that freak Cee Lo. For the love of Jesus can someone just shut that guy up? That’s what I want for Christmas, one damn week without that hobbit on my screen
McCartney is a legend. Hes a well oiled well maintained classic car that still blows away the whippersnappers. The problem here is he is squished on to Saturday Night Lives stage of horror. Yet, like a Christmas miracle puts forth a beautiful rendition of one of his new songs.
Homer is falling hard for these hipsters, running after coolness as if it was the new donut – actually, they are selling donuts, because these pastries are back being cool – and the whole episode is a study of hipsters’ life and their new parenting method,
I feel the end of the world is upon us. This is the second week where I cant complain about the boob tubes offerings! Hold on to your headphones kids.. is that ELVIS COSTELLO?? Yup, hes got that old hag wife of his (I’m kidding shes lovely I hate her) but Costello on TV! HURRAY!
Tonight Jamie Fox hosts Saturday Night Live with Ne-Yo as his musical wing man. I prefer that Fox perform but hey that’s just me. Remember him on the show In Living Color?! That was a great show and before he was Ray Charles and shit.
Warped Roadies is a new show on Fuse showing a backstage and gritty look into the inner workings of this fabulous event. This ‘behind the scene’ look is going to fuel a zillion kids who will now want to be roadies
What does this add up to? Some of the most ‘so last year’ performers on a show that didn’t have the courtesy to revise its title. ABC used to be THE place for New Years Eve but now? Well aside from Pitbull, yeah no I’m not in.
In a society that gives people awards for waking up it’s a sad thing that the nomination announcement warrants an hour of your life- let alone with your ears being assaulted by Maroon 5.
It’s as if the television Gods have glanced down at the huddled masses and offered them a week of pleasure for the hard time served. Its a wonderful thing. Yes of course, there is crap Reba and Richie Sambora seem to be hitting it with a vengeance but there is also Big Boi and holy hell is that Led Zep on Monday?
Maybe I’m being a bit hard on the bands up this week. We do have The Dirty Projectors, and Wiz Khalifa, Barbara Streisand and the neck scarved Aimee Mann..but nothing Holiday worthy nor cutting edge.
It’s Pitbull week on TV!! G’head hate Mr. 305 all you want, this Latin commodity is all over the place. He will also be ‘on the plaza’ at the Today Show the morning of the 21st
That makes Maroon 5’s fourth appearance. Both Trash talk and Mellowhype are in town, whatever happened to SNL’s reputation for being cutting edge. Belushi got Fear a gig back in the day, cmon guys, how about some adventurousness once again?
. I thought he was going to be immortal but this year we lost Mr American Bandstand, Dick Clark. What you may not know is that Clark created the AMA’s so its only fitting. you got it he is the winner of the American Music Awards tribute segment.
Kid Rock will be performing his new song “Detroit Michigan”, which pays tribute to greats from the motor city. This is where it gets hilarious though.
Saturday morning cartoons could not be missed. That was it. There were no childrens networks or DVD’s’, there weren’t even VCRs yet. Thais was your dose and if you missed it- too bad.
Two Door Cinema Club gets a nod from me this week. I’m not a fan but I can tell you their European representation is top notch. What lovely people, on the flip side their US firm is the exact opposite
Still one of the leading music forces, simply because they don’t have much option. This year the European Taylor Swift, Muse, No Doubt, Carly Rae Jepsen, fun, Rita Ora, The Killers, Psy (seriously?!?) and Alicia Keys
Seems those celebs are always sobbing about some pet charity. I cannot stand seeing grown men cry cuz they’re so touched by children who were born with horns or women with degenerative gum disorder
Does Big Machine sound familiar to you? Maybe not but they’re the folks who gave Taylor Swift her big break and there is more where that came from .
Those of you who saw Morrissey on Colbert may agree with me that maybe rock and roll and talk shows don’t mix (Colbert deserved a slap). Anyway this week we have the ever fabulous Paul Weller and not a hill of beans else.
I always feel badly for bands when they have public breakdowns. Substance or otherwise its tough to have your undies in full view.
most odd of the oddity? Morrissey on the Colbert Report. Look, Sir, I do find you the bees knees but dont try to be funny or hepped up on political satire. You sing, we’ll worry about the rest.
The word Muse no longer has a Goddess as its first visual, rather an English band who since 1994 have been an vital cog in the alternative rock scene. Similar in aura as Radiohead but just a smidge less annoying.
I’m tempted to tune in for this one just to get a glimpse of these guys. I have to admit I really liked Gene Simmons; Family Jewels, television series and I’m sorta surprised we arent hearing more from his son Nick
Marina will also make a stop on the booze fueled ‘mothers little helper’ talk show “Today Show with Hoda and Kathy Lee”, have you ever seen that crap? Saturday Night Live even cant stoop low enough for that horrific show
Whitney Houston passed away in February in the saddest of circumstance. Her family made her funeral a circus and hear daughter, poor thing, literally flipped out. Being in the spotlight is a tough way to live and it doesnt end once your dead either.
I am Conor Oberst and I have 24 million different things going on… if you cant keep up well, your loss. After our fantastic coverage of the solo Conor show in LA,and the pre jitters of his November Carnegie Hall gig we have his mug on TV. Only this time as Desaparecidos.
No Doubt promoting their new album (out today!) and my, my, my…look at Fallon. Its Two Door Cinema Club. These little Brits have a wonderful management team in the UK yet a rather.. hmm, unprofessional group in the US. Chances are pretty good they will remain a fringe band with that promotion. Good for them on Fallon though, get a bit of exposure, and be forgotten.
I do this weekly more for the benefit of the site than for any sort of interest. But I want to remain courant and if SNL is indication of our current cool kid society than holy hell we are doomed. Anyone remember Elvis Costello, or The Clash, The Specials or Bowie on SNL? Are there any bands even close to that cool? Yeah no.
