Watching Way Too Much TV For You!

Its the holiday season and I know most of you are getting anzious for the holidays to really be here (I know I am) but there was some news to discuss.

The Golden Globes nominations were announced on Tuesday and they provided some WTF!, Why? and YEA!, to talk about.

The WTF’s:

Matthew Morrison for Glee? I love Glee but Matt is not even close to being the best thing about the show. He is sometimes cringeworthy in his singing, dancing, and acting especially with his wife Terri.

Nominations for both Entourage and Jeremy Piven. The Piv just gets a nomination just because for some reason he has too. The show is terrible now and no need for this waste of space.

Why?:

No Lost. The veteran sci-fi drama was on most top 10 lists for TV this year and it provided a great narrative in time-travel in season 5. Plus the brilliant acting by Elizabeth Mitchell pushed it over the top.

The YEA’s!:

MODERN FAMILY FTW! This show makes me so happy every single week. The last episode was so brilliant in its deliever of heartfelt and funny Christimas story. Just fantastic TV.

Jane Lynch rules my world. Sue Sylvester (Glee) is by far the love-to-hate character in recent memory. Jane’s delivery is perfection.

Also this week the SAG nominations were announced and while they were pretty much similar there was so notable news. I am happy that Christina Applegate got one last nomination for her sadly cancelled ABC comedy Samantha Who?. She was a funny edition to my TV each week and I really hope she gets another starring show. Also in the same category, I know she is a veteran but Julia Louis Dryfus is just plain funny on Old Christine. If you did not see last nights episode with both Micheala Watkins and Molly Shannon, get on it now. The best episode of the series in years, and a ending you will not expect.
