Quote of the Week: Hey, my boobs are awesome. (Rebecca Logan, Greek)
Song of the Week: Does anyone know what song was played at the end of Rescue Me?
Big News of the Week: Digital Conversion Finally Happened: After almost a year of postponements, the digital conversion finally happened last night so hopefully you can still get all your channels today. I’m just glad we don’t have to sit through all those reminders.
I would also like to point out this week I took part in a survey over at TV Blips who asked TV Bloggers their thoughts on the recent cancelations and renewal for next fall. Head over there to read my thoughts.
Coalition Links of the Week:
So, Futurama is back. Buzz wonders: Is this cause for celebration — or just puzzlement? (BuzzSugar)
This past week was a lot of fun. Jimmy Fallon & his guests had us laughing. Top Chef Masters returned to make us hungry. And our favorite reality show, So You Think You Can Dance, made us want to dance. (Give Me My Remote)
Not even a pretty face and an English accent can save the hyper-mediocre new show Mental. (TiFaux)
Vance thought it was such a strong first week Top 20 performance, that he doesn't know who to love right now on So You Think You Can Dance!(Tapeworthy)
This week, Jace reviewed the first four episodes of Season Two of True Blood, talked to Alan Ball about what to expect this season, and had a candid interview with Virtuality co-creator Michael Taylor about the upcoming FOX airing of the two-hour pilot. (Televisionary)
This week, the TV Addict shone the spotlight on the Broadway invasion that is upon us when the new slate of shows premiere this Fall 2009. (The TV Addict)
The more he reads about various Flash Forward characters, the more excited Matt gets about this show. (TV Fanatic)
Pushing Daisies: Holy Fred Williamson sighting! And he gets his head twisted off! It is depressing that tonight is the last episode ever. Or at least for ten years when networks try to recycle ideas from the ’00. You can stream current episodes over at ABC.com.
I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! Did they just have the relatives of everyone involved on standby? First Rod Blagoavich isn’t allowed to leave the country so his wife goes instead. The first time Heidi and Spencer bolt, they bring in another Baldwin and the second time it is Heidi’s sister that joins the show. And why are they still adding people? I thought this was only going on three weeks, but they are adding more people then are getting voted off. You can stream current episodes over at Hulu.com.
Greek: Aw, homecoming, one of only two days of the year when it is socially acceptable to start drinking before noon. You can stream current episodes over at ABCFamily.com. You can also download Greek on iTunes.
Rescue Me: Yeah, Tommy drinking again is not going to end well. And with White Shawn off having surgery, is Black Shawn going to be the new Dumb to Mike’s Dumber? Them trying to keep from telling Tommy’s cousin he was drinking again was pretty funny. You can stream current episodes over at Hulu.
Free Download of the Week: Royal Pains in HD (iTunes): Last week I previewed the new USA show Royal Pains and now you can download the extended pilot for free.
Deal of the Week: More Great Blu-ray Hits for Dads (Pirates of the Caribbean Trilogy, Lost, Remember the Titans)
Video of the Week: Oh that wacky Chris Hansen and his undercover cameras. This time Hansen heads to Sin City to catch pimps. As seen by the clip below, one alleged pimp is happy that the he hasn’t been caught by Hansen for his most famous Dateline NBC segment. Dude apparently is such a fan of To Catch a Predator he looks to get an autograph (see clip below). Dateline NBC: Vegas Undercover airs Monday at 10:00 on NBC.
Next Week Pick of the Week: Greek, Monday at 8:00 on ABC Family: The description for the season finale of Greek says that Dale and Calvin make a purity pledge together. Really anything that Dale and Calvin pledge to do together will result in hilarity.
