For two weeks now, I have been completely obsessed with The Olympics.  I have literally watched everything that has been televised during any free moment that I have had.  Who knew water polo was so fascinating?  And who would have thought pole vaulting could be so entertaining?  It has been great watching people from all over the globe excel in their events.  I am extremely proud of our American athletes, and I am sad that the London Games are quickly coming to an end.

My favorite new TV addiction is Duck Dynasty.  This group of so-called “high-tech rednecks” is the most entertaining thing in a very long time.  The show is set in Louisiana and follows the Robertson clan who founded the ridiculously successful companies, Duck Commander and Buck Commander.  Most of the major characters are college-educated, so they are quite articulate while being hilarious.  There are so many memorable lines crammed into each 30 minute episode that I do not think I will ever get tired of watching them.  Jase is my most favorite, but they are all hoots and well-worth your time.  It airs Wednesdays at 10:00 pm ET on A&E.  If you haven’t had the privilege yet, please treat yourself as soon as possible!

Because I love The Big Bang Theory so much, this post was too funny not to pass along.

I came across this video from Jimmy Kimmel Live.  And although I do not personally have a Twitter account, I am intrigued to say the least.  Especially when you consider the possibility of interacting with your favorite celebrities.  Enjoy watching these famous folks read some of their hilarious tweets!

One of my favorite things to do to relax is to watch television.  The shows that I always make time for are:

5. Two and a Half Men

4. Rules of Engagement

3. Modern Family

2. Parenthood

1. The Big Bang Theory

This week, Entertainment Weekly provided a great tribute to the most memorable TV catch phrases from the past seventy years.  Enjoy!

This little update from Entertainment Weekly made my week!  In Living Color was an awesome show, and Homey D. Clown is one of my most favorite characters of all time.  Hope you enjoy!

I had already decided to write about this week’s episode of Big Bang Theory due to Mayim Bialik’s hilarious performance as Amy Farrah Fowler.  But, the good folks at Entertainment Weekly came up with an outstanding list that just has to be shared.  Hope you enjoy!

I have always been a huge fan of Saturday Night Live.  As a kid, I fondly remember spending the night at my cousin’s house and trying desperately to stay awake until 11:30 pm!  SNL has given us some of the most wonderfully talented comedic actors of all time.  Folks like Will Ferrell, Eddie Murphy, Chris Farley, and Jimmy Fallon are brilliant.  There have been countless awesome sketches over the years, but these are some of my favorites:

Will Ferrell & Christopher Walken — More Cowbell

Will Ferrell & Cheri Oteri — Spartan Cheerleaders

Patrick Swayze & Chris Farley — Chippendale Dancers

Molly Shannon — Mary Katherine Gallagher

And, who can forget the hosts?  My recent favorite is Justin Timberlake, and this clip is one of the funniest things that I have ever seen!

Is there any TV show better than Seinfeld?  First, consider that the entire series was about  … NOTHING.  Then, ponder the brilliant quirkiness of the four main characters.  Seinfeld is one of those shows that I watched religiously every week for 9 seasons, and I continue to watch 2 or 3 episodes per week now that it is in syndication.  Consequently, Seinfeld produced some of the most memorable lines and catchphrases in all of pop culture.  I quote the show all the time, and here are my favorites:

1. Serenity now!

2. Master of your domain!

3. Not that there’s anything wrong with that!

4. No soup for you!

5. These pretzels are making me thirsty!

I am happy to report that I am now a fan of yet another drama — Burn Notice.  The USA network quite brilliantly ran last season’s episodes in a marathon on the Sunday prior to the new season starting.  Well, as I was flipping channels, the show caught my eye.  And, after only 10 minutes, I was completely HOOKED!  I watched all of the episodes from Season 4, and I anxiously awaited the Season 5 premiere on June 23rd.  The show is really good because I find the spy story lines and action fascinating.  All of the characters are well-written, and the acting is outstanding.  So, if you are looking for something to watch this summer, I highly recommend Burn Notice Thursdays at 9:00 pm on USA.
