Christmas is only a few days away! Do you celebrate the corporate holiday? The non-corporate version? A bit of both? Neither? Yes, that's lots of questions -- maybe you'll take to the comments section and answer some of them!
Hi all! It's Monday, which means another week of late night comedy to check out. But first, how did your weekends go? Have an enjoyable Thanksgiving? Get any crazy Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals? (And hopefully not trampled in the process!)
Well, enough of the pleasantries. Let's get to the listings, shall we?
First, a quick Top 5 for you:
Unfortunately, I have no time today to talk about what went down last week in late night, nor who to check out this week. Because of the Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S. this Thursday, the Comedy Central shows are airing repeats all week, and the other shows have repeats either Thursday, Friday, or both.
Conan O'Brien returned! Did you watch? What did you think? Many critics thought he was "too safe" -- I guess they were expecting him to re-invent the wheel, given the freedom he had gained by owning his own show on basic cable. But Conan has always wanted to be a talk show host, and we shouldn't have expected him to do too much more than that.
So it's been a while... hi! It's been a long many months since this section has been active. Part of that was due to lots of summer repeats in the late night world, and part of is was -- I'm not gonna lie -- a bit of sadness at the lack of Conan O'Brien on our airwaves.
It's mostly repeats this week in late night land. Tonight, for instance, is all repeats south of the border, as it's Memorial Day (the only non-repeat is CBC's The Hour with George Stroumboloupoulos).
Hello, friends! So how was your weekend? Good times? Up here in Winnipeg, the weather was gorgeous all weekend, so Saturday I did some car-aoke and Sunday was spent out at the park for some football and BBQ. Even though the calendar doesn't say so yet, it's so great that summer's here!
But with the summer comes the end of the broadcast television season.
Last week, most shows were in either repeats or pre-empted because of the Olympics, but this week almost every one is back on with new episodes. Not very much interesting actually happened over the last couple weeks since I last posted.
I don't have very much time to write a lot before posting this week's late night talk shows listings.
