Breaking Bad is the best show on television. Season Four ended Sunday with a bang. Literally.
In a climactic final battle, Walter White orchestrates the death of arch-enemy, drug dealer Gus Fring (played by actor Gus Esposito.) Walter tricks Gus into going to a nursing home where he blows him up. Watch Gus’ demise-truly one of the greatest tv death scenes EVER:
Country music singer Hank Williams Jr. has officially been fired by ESPN and Monday Night Football. Williams, you’ll recall, had his opening theme song pulled from this week’s MNF game after he compared President Obama to Hitler during a Fox News appearance..
On his website, Hank Jr. claimed he “quit” rather than being fired. Williams said he did so because ESPN “stepped on the toes of the First Amendment Freedom of Speech” therefore “Me, My Song and All My Rowdy Friends are OUTTA HERE.”
Like most Tea Party and Fox News afficianados, Williams is an even worse Constitutional scholar than he is a singer. The First Amendment, of course, doesn’t protect your right of free speech from ESPN. It prevents the GOVERNMENT from restricting your right to free speech. ESPN is free to fire Williams for any reason it wants-because he’s fat, was drunk while representing their organization at 6:00 am or because he offended millions of people who are not from the South or watch Fox News.
Williams will now have to go back to making all his money from selling Confederate flag memorabilia off his website. Mainly since he is currently booked for ZERO appearances for the rest of 2011 or 2012 as a singer.
Still, simply being a racist and knowing nothing about The Constitution does apparently qualify Williams to be the next U.S. Senator from the great state of Tennessee. So, he’s got that going for him.
Former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty was the first major Republican figure to drop out of the 2012 presidential race. The spineless Pawlenty failed to excite voters in any way and was constantly getting schooled in debates and in public by his TITANIUM-spined fellow Minnesotan Michele Bachmann.
Mediaite.com is reporting that Pawlenty immediately sought refuge by applying for a job as a political analyst with Fox News. However, Pawlenty was deemed too boring for tv and did not get the job.
What a revolting development on ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars.” TV talk show harpy Nancy Grace’s boobs popped out after one of her routines. Ahhhhhh!
The show managed to edit out most of the damage but got in a snide comment of, “On the European version that would be perfectly fine.”
There’s only one way this could have been worse:
The best show on television returns tonight.
Time magazine editor Mark Halperin has been suspended “indefinitely” from his analyst job at MSNBC after he said President Barack Obama was acting like “kind of a dick” during his Thursday appearance on Morning Joe. Halperin repeatedly asked hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski if the tv show’s “dump button” was working. Egged on by Scarborough, Halperin then drops his d-bomb.
A horrified Halperin comes back from break and profusely apologizes to President Obama. Pay particular attention to the cringeworthy performance by Scarborough who promptly throws both his entire crew and the Time editor under the bus in an effort to absolve himself of any responsibility.
GREAT MOMENTS IN REALITY TELEVISION HISTORY: DRUNKEN, NAKED CELEBRITY MIDGET VERNE TROYER URINATES IN A CORNER (SURREAL LIFE 2005)
God, I hate reality television.
VH1 just announced this year’s cast for the reality tv show Celebrity Rehab. As per usual, it’s a Who’s Who of washed up losers. The main “celebrity” being hyped by the show is horrible parent/douchebag Michael Lohan. He’s famous only for spawning drug addled celebrity slut Lindsey Lohan.
Former New York Mets pitcher Dwight Gooden will also appear on the show. Poor Dr. Drew. You’re not likely to succeed if you’re job is to keep Doc Gooden off booze and drugs.
Also appearing on this year’s show is drunken, pain in the ass actress Sean Young. Young was once one of the top stars in Hollywood. She was the female lead in Blade Runner next to Harrison Ford, for God’s sake. Now, she’s so washed up and her career is such a trainwreck that she wasn’t mentioned until the fourth paragraph of VH1’s press release announcing this year’s cast for Celebrity Rehab.
