I’m not sure that I’m thankful for Gossip Girl

You probably think there’s some mistake and this is Angie’s post. It’s not. I’ll admit I saw some of the Gossip Girl Thanksgiving show. In my defense, I was reading a comic book while it was on (it was an issue of Ms. Marvel so maybe that doesn’t help my case too much). This episode had more drama than usual if you can believe it, culminating in not one, but a groundbreaking FOUR characters storming away from the dinner table. All of this happened while some ridiculous song that I believe was used in the finale of the O.C. (I’ve only seen the SNL parody so I can’t be sure) was playing in the background.

Gossip Girl airs Mondays on the CW. Angie would watch it every day if she could, and I have plenty of comic books to read.


I’m even following Jimmy Fallon on Twitter

When Conan O’Brien took over The Tonight Show this month, we decided to record it and see what he was up to.  We’re Conan fans, so we had some built in interest.  As part of the deal, we added Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to the recording schedule as well.

We had watched Late Night during Jimmy’s first week back in March, but hadn’t paid any attention since.  I can’t speak for Angie (or anyone else here), but I can’t get enough of the show.  I enjoyed the first week, but it’s just gotten so much better and Jimmy Fallon seems much more natural in his hosting role.  Even more compelling than that is the fact that the humor is just how I like it, and the content really appeals to me.  No other talk show that I’m watching has segments on the Palm Pre and Apple’s iPhone 3GS, or demonstrates the XBox360 Natal.  Tonight he‘s playing Tiger Woods on the Wii in Times Square!  I’d go so far as to say this stuff isn’t on anyone in television’s mind outside of G4 and one or two other niche basic cable shows.

Bottom line, I’m hooked on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.  The Roots‘ contributions as the show’s house band don’t hurt, nor does the drama of the Late Night reality show, 7th Floor West.
