Man, Blogger Sucks

Sorry for the late posting, but I couldn't get onto Blogger until just now.

Just a quick update for today.

In what could be the greatest bit of TV ever, Bill O'Reilly and Stephen Colbert will appear on each other's programs on the same night, Jan. 18. Hopefully, Colbert gives O'Reilly a similar beatdown to the one Jon Stewart gave Tucker Carlson a couple of years ago.

TONIGHT'S BEST BETS: "House" will air in a two-hour block tonight, beginning with the Christmas cliffhanger at 8 p.m. that sets up an all-new episode at 9 p.m., with our antihero at the hands of Det. Tritter.

You can catch the most pointless awards show in the history of Western Civilization, "The People's Choice Awards" (CBS, 9 p.m.) hosted by Queen Latifah. You know, it's nothing but a popularity contest...

I was wondering what happened to the site!

MY favorite anti hero on television is a 3 way tie between Tommy Gavin, Vic Mackey and Tony Soprano. Your guy 'House' couldn't shine their shoes.

I mean really, could you pump up a more overrated actor/character anymore then you do for House (Hugh Laurie)? Just wondering.

Let me take a wild guess at tonight's all new "House"...there will be a mystery that only House can solve and he will walk around and grump at snap at everyone with the worst bedisde manner since Dr. Kevorkian. He will then solve said mystery...the end while all the rest of the Medical staff, written at only a 1/4 of the intelligence of Dr. House will marvel at his angry genius.

You may rag on 5 straight (though you've never missed an episode) seasons of "24" but at least the show is thrilling and always surprises the audience.

Well, the Golden Globes and most TV critics and fans agree with me about House, but watch whatever you like.

Let me take a wild guess on what will happen on 24 this season. There will be an international crisis that only Jack Bauer can save us from. Jack will kill/maim/torture an average of three people an episode. The terrorist plot will change about five different ways during the course of the season, and Jack will be betrayed at least once by someone he works with or by the government. Oh yeah, Jack and/or his bosses will be replaced at least once by someone completely incompetent, leading to CTU being breached by the enemy at least once. Tell me where the surprise part comes in again?

But don't worry, I plan on dissecting 24 in detail later this week, just so you have something to look forward to.

Thanks for the "24" summary--sounds great and far more entertaining then the genius grumpy Doctor who's the only person in the hospital who can solve a medical mystery.
