What Do You Watch on Tuesdays?

I really enjoyed last night's episode of the Office, both funny and touching. I'm surprised at how well they've been able to find their own voice and personality apart from the BBC version. It'll never be as good, but it's still pretty damn funny. In contrast, I'm one more crappy episode away from giving up on My Name is Earl. The past few weeks have been just awful. I know Scrubs creator, Bill Lawrence, would rather his show be coupled with My Name is Earl, but I think the funnier hour of comedy would be a Scrubs/Office coupling. Of course, ratings-wise, the former is the obvious choice, as My Name is Earl has much better ratings than the Office. As they say, no one ever went broke underestimating the taste of the America public.

Anyways here's some more articles:
B.J. Novak "blogs" his experience on NBC's the Office. While Rainn Wilson "blogs" here.

Conan O'Brien appears in the new White Stripes music video (directed by one of my favs, Michel Gondry). Pretty cool to see 30 Rock (my place of employment) through the eyes of Mr. Gondry.

Another article about the OC effect.

Aquaman to get his own show? Anyone else miss Entourage? Sort of random, I saw Adrian Grenier walking across Houston Street alone the other night. I wanted to scream "let's hug it out", but just gave a half-assed head nod instead. There was a stream of women walking/stalking behind him.

Totally unrelated to TV, you can now download a subway map for your iPod.

Lastly, have you seen this commercial? It has Cat Powers' cover of the Nerves' "Hanging on the Telephone." I love Chan Marshall.

My Name Is Earl is mad overrated. I'm also thinking about possibly giving up on it. I mean it's Ok and all, but I could use that 30 minutes for writing instead unless they start stepping it up. The Office on the other hand is the shit. It scares me that more people watch Rodney than The Office. I don't know anyone who has ever heard of that show or seen it.

Captain Oats, you break my heart when you talk shit about Earl, not unlike the way "Anni" broke Padme's heart in Revenge of The Sith. Of course, maybe it's because I'm writing an Earl spec at the moment. Still, you were like a brother to me! You were the chosen one! Now I will chop off all your limbs, dip you in lava and bear your children, then die. Yes, I realize I confused Padme and Obi-wan, but just bearing your children and dying didn't seem like adequate revenge.

I so appreciate the Michel Gondry love. I am stoked to watch his newest film at Sundance called The Science of Sleep next month.

I have heard that the cover that Cat Power did for the Cingular commercial was only recorded for the commercial. I love her voice and wish that she would release the full track. I wonder if there is anyway to get it.

What do you think of The Office now? ;)

I usually watch the last few minutes of MNIE only because it precedes The Office. I don't get why that turned into such a big hit!

Nice blog! And your puppy is ADORABLE.
