Notes from the TV

Now that the Olympics are finished (and my roommate could not be happier), it's time for the return of your regularly scheduled programming. Shows like Dancing with the Stars which, as you may remember, I haven't cared about since the demise of The Gute. Well, the new cast was announced and it's not bad, but the name that really sticks out is NFL wide receiver Chad Ochocinco. We are big fans of Ocho here at The Watchword and may just have to check out how he dances. Can you imagine weekly DwtS recaps by Dave? Best. Thing. Ever.

Also, Parenthood debuts tonight. Based on the 1989 film by Ron Howard, I really had no interest in this reboot until Lauren Graham joined the cast. I think I might watch Lauren Graham watch paint dry...I do love her so. I'm still pretty sure this show will suck, but I'm giving it a shot.

And, in questions I already know the answer to, is anyone watching How to Make it in America on HBO? (you can watch full episodes here) It's basically Entourage with NYC hipsters which, I know, sounds truly terrible, but I really like it. Maybe because I cannot stop watching Bryan Greenberg who plays the lead character, Ben. There's just something about him, man. And I like it.

So, your thoughts on the DwtS cast? Will you be watching Parenthood? Do you know how to connect me with Bryan Greenberg so I can have 10,000 of his babies? Thanks! You're the best.

I would watch Lauren Graham stomp on kittens, that's how much I like her.

Is there anything more evil than stomping kittens? Eating babies? Okay, then, I'd watch her do that.

I draw the line at defecating on the Pope...but mostly because I'm afraid I'd find out that he liked it.

Sorry, I'm just a tad excited to have my regular shows back.

Defecating on the Pope? What the what??

I love Lauren Graham too, but probably in a more multidimensional way than you do. I will definitely be watching Parenthood because of her. I hope it doesn't suck.

And I don't think I would watch Dancing With The Stars if Jesus were competing, but Ocho sounds like an entertaining addition.

No way can I do a DWTS recap...maybe and I say MAYBE DVR and fast forward to see Chad's dancing, I'm looking for moves called "The McNugget" etc.

LOL, Ocho has a good point now he gets to dance w/o getting a fine from the league!

I am interested in watching Parenthood, but I will probably always forget to do so. Is it on opposite Idol? You know I can't miss that mess.
