Happy weekend HIHers! And happy one it is for the couch since Thursday night comedies came back on NBC. Oh it feels good to laugh. Sorry for the absence we did not forget about you, and cause we love you here is our week in review.
A sign that the apocalypse that was the writer's strike is really over as everyone's favorite shows are slowly returning, First it was How I Met Your Mother, and we are now hearing that Sarah Chalke, who plays Stella the plastic surgeon who removed Ted's tramp stamp and then took her on the cutest two minute date ever maybe be back for more episodes. (whew mouthful) Our thought is that Stella is the mother of How I Met Your Mother! Yea we know that is not as mind blowing as Michael is on the ship or Penny's Dad is the big bad on Lost but it is still pretty good. One little throw away line of her saying that she went to a St Patrick's Day party last week but left connected with Ted's saying to his kids at the end of the St. Patrick's Day episode that he didn't know it but their Mom was at that same party.
And then finally it happened. Must see TV came back on Thursday night will all new episodes of My Name is Earl, 30 Rock, The Office and Scrubs which may or may not be moving to ABC next season. Let's get to the good ones.
So how long until Fox Reality put on MILF Island? We are giving it two months, we bet you it is even in development right now. And how much do we love Alec Baldwin, every scene with him is a gem especially when he finally cracks Liz in the end with the stutter and how the state of Massachusetts classified him as a Grade A Moron. You can all just eat my poo.
Babe, that was the most awkward dinner party ever. Babe, I think it was the scented candles or the Dundie thrown at the $200 plasma screen TV that did it in, babe. The Office came back with a vengeance and let us in on the home life of Michael and Jan which involves, an office, a workspace, a broken glass door (Michael really loves the ice cream man), the smallest plasma screen TV, and Jan's Serenity candles. During the three hour waiting period for dinner, we got to see the best game of celebrity ever, Jim and Pam confessionals in the only safe room of the house the bathroom, Dwight showing up with his baby sitter and beet salad, the realization that Michael has had three vasectomies and of course Hunter's song for Jan. Love those dance moves. The culmination of the night was a Dundie through a TV and the cops showing up and telling Michael that he should sleep elsewhere and of course Dwight being Dwight took him home. The icing on the cake, Angela slamming an ice cream cone into Andy's car after he took a lick of it. Personal space their Andy. It was awesome babe.
Reality TV News in a nutshell, American Idol Gives Back had lower ratings than last season and does not look like they are going to be raising as much money as last season either. Plus, the shocker of Michael Johns still sits in our mouth, James is off of Big Brother, Hell's Kitchen is back, and Secret Talents of the Stars is over after one episode.
