Its like day 60+ of the Writer’s Guild strike. And more power to them, keep fighting that fight! But damnit, its starting to wear me down. Watching TV is one of the simple joys of my life, and its just not that joyful right now…. Either they’re pushing some battling choirs with that crumb Nick Lachey, or a saggy rock star dating game, or a Dancing with Stars spinoff….Spinoffs of already unbearable reality shows?

This is starting to remind me of the time I ate uncooked pasta in college because I was too tired to go to the common area and actually boil water.

Anyways, if I have to watch another pathetic excuse of a woman lick creamcheese out of the navel of a buffed-out closeted gay man in the name of love (or at least network TV temporary contractual non-disclosure love), I’m gonna start doing my own marionette troupe, on some Being John Malkovich ish.

But thank you lil’ enfant jesus, with your baby jesus powers….there’s hope on the horizon.

Lost comes back on Jan. 31, and this trailer is cook’d crack in youtube form.

And The Wire comes back on Jan. 6.

(and more with Omar, Bubbles, and Carcetti)

But, on the flipside, the Writer’s Guild has denied a request from the upcoming Golden Globe Awards to allow their members to get out of the strike so they can write the jokes for the ceremony on Jan 13th. And the Oscars are next in line for the same denial. You thought those celebs were corny and annoying with the help of a teleprompter? Just wait till you see them without a script.

Now that I think about it, that could be pretty entertaining….trainwrecks can make for great TV too.
