Quote of the Week: You watch Mad Men but you don’t watch The Hills? They are the two smartest shows on television. (Bill Simmons, Pardon the Interuption)
Song of the Week: Africa - Toto IV – Toto (as sung by Abed, Troy and Betty White; Community)
Big News of the Week: Premiere Week Redux: CBS took the biggest gable of the fall shuffling two of its biggest shows around and managed to increase viewers at both timeslots. The other big story of the fall is how ambivalent everyone is to the new shows, none of which made much of a splash. But I find it humorous that the most hated new show among critics, $#*! My Dad Says had one of the bigger audiences while no one seemed to watch the most buzzed about pilot, Lonestar. (Sorry Tyra, you should have stayed blonde.) If you missed them, some of the premieres are currently free to rent or download on iTunes.
Pilot - My Generation, Season 1
Pilot - Outsourced, Season 1
All Mixed Up - Cougar Town, Season 2
Pilot - Detroit 1-8-7, Season 1
Pilot - Raising Hope, Season 1
A Deadly Affair - Castle, Season 3
I Haven't Told You Everything - The Event, Season 1
Pilot - Lone Star, Season 1

Gratuitous Token Hot Chick Picture of the Week:
Free Download of the Week: At or With Me - Jack Johnson (iTunes) Not only is the video featuring Andy Samberg available for free, you can also pick up a remix of the song for the same price.
Deal of the Week: Spotlight Deals: Television (Band of Brothers, Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths, Bored to Death)
Video of the Week: The plot of The Dilemma seems like it is better suited for a sitcom episode rather than a full length movie, but if there is anyone who can stretch turkey meat it is Vince Vaughn.
