Nobody's Watching... the OK, Go Spoof

The boys over at Nobody's Watching have added several new videos in the last few days, including a hilarious (if way too short) spoof of my favorite treadmill-based video ever (that would be "Here It Goes Again" by OK Go) and a video showing Derek and Will playing a game of 24... because, let's be serious, all of us twenty-something guys secretly wish we were Jack Bauer.

They've also given you, their loyal fans, the opportunity to tell NBC what you really, really want: "We’re going to pay NBC a little visit with our cameras in the next couple days and make sure we let them know what we think about their new fall schedule. And if you guys have anything you’d like to tell them about any of their shows (good or bad), post it here or call us at 818-620-3151 and we’ll be sure to tell them for you."

Start your emailing and phone calls now (though Derek's voicemail box already appears to be full) complaining about the never-ending airings of Deal or No Deal, the truncating and shunting of Kidnapped to Saturdays, and why you think Dawn Tinsley, a.k.a. The Office's Lucy Davis (currently appearing on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip), deserves her own series. Because, well, she does.

And Will & Derek, as long as you're over at the Peacock offices, can you be sure to tell NBC that we want lots more of the US version of The Office for many years to come? OK, thanks.

I love Nobody's Watching! These guys are pretty funny. I wonder - if NBC officially does give it the go ahead - if they will transition the boys from the WB (where the first pilot took place) to NBC. I presume so, which we can only count then for lots of inside jokes about how poorly (save for Heroes) the network is doing.

The song in the OK Go video is "Here it Goes Again," just so you know! :)

Love your site!

Ouch. I do not know what I was thinking! But the song title has been fixed--thanks for the catch and the kind words!

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

BuzzFeed: Meet The TV Successor To "Serial"

HBO's stranger-than-fiction true crime documentary The Jinx   — about real estate heir Robert Durst — brings the chills and thrills missing since Serial   wrapped up its first season. Serial   obsessives: HBO's latest documentary series is exactly what you've been waiting for.   The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst , like Sarah Koenig's beloved podcast, sifts through old documents, finds new leads from fresh interviews, and seeks to determine just what happened on a fateful day in which the most foul murder was committed. And, also like  Serial  before it,  The Jinx may also hold no ultimate answer to innocence or guilt. But that seems almost beside the point; such investigations often remain murky and unclear, and guilt is not so easy a thing to be judged. Instead, this upcoming six-part tantalizing murder mystery, from director Andrew Jarecki ( Capturing the Friedmans ), is a gripping true crime story that unfolds with all of the speed of a page-turner; it

BuzzFeed: "The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now"

The CBS legal drama, now in its sixth season, continually shakes up its narrative foundations and proves itself fearless in the process. Spoilers ahead, if you’re not up to date on the show. At BuzzFeed, you can read my latest feature, " The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now," in which I praise CBS' The Good Wife and, well, hail it as the best show currently on television. (Yes, you read that right.) There is no need to be delicate here: If you’re not watching The Good Wife, you are missing out on the best show on television. I won’t qualify that statement in the least — I’m not talking about the best show currently airing on broadcast television or outside of cable or on premium or however you want to sandbox this remarkable show. No, the legal drama is the best thing currently airing on any channel on television. That The Good Wife is this perfect in its sixth season is reason to truly celebrate. Few shows embrace complexity and risk-taking in t
