We interrupt this program...

Now that the holiday season is in full swing, it is time to take a look at the holiday programming that is about to hit the airwaves. There are of course the classics, but as we look further down the list, some curious choices are dotting the programming.

Rudolph: Dec. 3rd, CBS (8pm EST)
A classic story of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and his journey to fame. ****

A Very Brady Christmas: Dec. 9th ABC Family (4pm EST)
The Brady's re-unite in this Christmas Story for the ages. **

Lost: A Christmas Special: Dec. 10th ABC (9pm EST)
Join John Locke as he returns to America three years in the future, just in time to spend Christmas with the people around him who he thought were dead. And to explain to us the Christmas miracle of why millions of people wasted six years of their life following the show. *

Christmas in the Hills: Dec. 14th MTV (Check Local Listings)
Spencer and Heidi tell stories of Christmas' past. Lauren laments on the fact because of the economy she can only spend two weeks in Cabo instead of the usual three. Good looking, shallow people complain about the holidays and their problems in life. **

Wine and Coke: A Lindsay Lohan Christmas: Dec. 18th VHI (11pm EST)
Lindsay Lohan allows some of her top fans to read her Christmas blogs. Various topics will include items about Obama's Christmas, why she hates Facebook, and why she became a lesbian. Lohan scheduled to appear wearing her Christmas outfit from Mean Girls. ***

CSI: North Pole: Dec. 19th CBS (9pm EST)

American Idol: Home for the Holidays: Dec. 22nd FOX (8pm EST)
Paula Abdul sits by a fireplace and enjoys a bottle of wine. And then another. And then three more. Special Appearances by Randy Jackson, Clay Aiken, Jim Dunkleman, and the dancing cat. *

Santa Clause 4: The who gives a fuck clause: Dec. 23rd TNT (5pm EST)
Tim Allen returns yet again as Santa Claus in this yawner of a remake of It's a Wonderful Life. This time around, Santa thinks he has become un-important in life and is taken on a journey by Co-Star Richard Karn. And by journey, we mean two hours of Family Feud.

Christmas Eve with Sarah Palin: Dec. 24th CBS (11pm EST)
Listen as the former vice-president-in-waiting regales us with stories about hunting, beauty pageants, and shopping. Time allotting, she will inform us how a women from Alaska speaks like a person from Minnesota. **

Christmas Day: A Jim Belushi Spectacular: Dec. 25th ABC (Noon EST)
Live from Disney World, Jim Belushi hosts the Disney World parade, then in true Jimbo fashion bores us to death with his bland comedy. We get it, he loves the Cubs, and all he wants for Christmas is a Cubs World Series. Other events include Belushi on Ice and Belushi sleds down the Thunder Mountain wearing a Santa Suit. *****

From the looks of it, this is going to be one very exciting Christmas.

Finally that dancing cat is gonna get some screen time. I didn't want to tell you this, but that cat's been carrying you for years.

You take that back. The cat owes everything to me. That's right, to me. I carried him for years, including that comedy show we did in Lubbock, Texas in which he pissed himself on stage. He is an amateur. (I sure miss that cat. I'm jealous and I hope he enjoys his Christmas.)

The Bromance of Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Matthew Lillard

In the late 1990's and early 2000's, there was no greater bromance than that between Freddie Prinze, Jr. and Matthew Lillard. The two of them appeared in no less than five movies together in a five year time span. These two were meant to be. Two young stars destined to take the world by storm as a team. Hanging out, meeting women, and enjoying the good life. And then, just like that, stardom was ripped away from them. Though they continued to work, they would never appear together again in a film.
What was it that pulled them apart? Did they just choose to go different directions? Was it Sarah Michelle Gellar that drove a wedge between these two? While Lillard eventually went on to star in an Oscar nominated film (The Descendants), Prinze, Jr. went on to write for the WWE and occasionally show up as a guest star on television shows. While both have tried, neither has recaptured that joy that once displayed on screen. Tonight, I want to dutifully remind the world of t…

American Sports Franchises Thirsty for a Title

A billy goat. A dash of bad luck. A sprinkle of a die hard fan. Leon Durham. Add those together and you have the beginnings of the recipe for the curse that has haunted the Chicago Cubs for over 70 years.
In winning the 2016 World Series, the Cubs collected their first World Series title since 1908. Their seven-game victory effectively ended the longest title drought among the four major professional sports leagues in the United States.


Now that the talk of a goat and Bartman can be put to rest, it is now the Cleveland Indians sitting on the longest drought in the Major League baseball. The Indians will be discussed here, as will the other longest droughts in the three other major American sports leagues.
MLB-Cleveland Indians
The Indians moved through the American League this postseason with ease. First, they swept the Boston Red Sox in the ALDS. Then, they took care of the Toronto Blue Jays in five games.
Yes, the Indians lost in the World Series after l…

"Pissing our pants yet? Boy, do I have a feeling we're getting close."- Negan, The Walking Dead

And people thought Ramsay Bolton was sadistic.


The much anticipated season seven premiere of The Walking Dead hit the airwaves last Sunday. Boy, was it a doozy.
I am not going to spend much time on what side of the liked/didn't like it/I'm never watching again spectrum I fall in. I will say that I was enraptured, on the edge of my seat for nearly the entire one hour, six minutes (including commercials) of the episode. This was an episode that filled me with a sense of existential dread for the characters inhabiting The Walking Dead world. It is a feeling that is still with me nearly two days later.
As a disclaimer, I am only through the first ten volumes of the graphic novels. I have yet to reach the Negan arc. I am also on the side of the court that didn't m…
