{January 27, 2010}   iPad a wrap-up

So, did you enjoy all the feminine hygiene jokes today? Yes, the questioningly named iPad was introduced today and apparently it has a NYTimes app, it does NOT support Flash websites, it is greenish, it might save comics, and apparently Mad TV knew about it years ago:

{January 25, 2010}   Living on $30,000 in NYC?

  • Damages season 3 starts tonight @10pm on F/X…here’s a review on tonight’s ep.

MTV has posted all the performances from last night’s Haiti Telethon. My personal favorite was Wyclef, who ended the show. I thought he brought it big time! But here’s who opened the show Watch Alicia Keys screech “Prelude To A Kiss” on UPDATE: You can now buy all the songs from last night’s telethon via amazon, with proceeds going to charity

{January 23, 2010}   Conan says goodbye

Personally, I thought Conan should have never left The Late Show, but oh well. I missed Conan’s last show as The Tonight Show’s host, (my mother said of it “While I am not a huge Conan O’Brien fan, I thought he handled himself with such class and dignity last night that he actually won me over and I will be delighted to see what is in store for him in the future”). Looking on the bright side it seems through the late night fiasco Conan has finally got his groove back.

So, luck  for me, Conan’s final show is all over the internet today! You can read a summary of what went down here and view his farewell monologue, or read Time Magazine’s TV critic’s review, or you can just watch the whole show yourself on Hulu.

Also, Jimmy Fallon and The Roots paid tribute to Conan on The Late Show
