Weekly Overview:
This week wasn't as strong as others, but it was still good. Tied for best this week are How I Met Your Mother, Community and Chuck. They all had good episodes, but The Best of the Week award goes to Chuck. The Worst of the Week unfortunately, has to be The Mentalist which for some reason had a very boring episode. Nothing really on next week, but I'll write what I can.

Best Moments:
- The shockingly sad ending to HIMYM this week.

- Crazy Shawn on Psych.

- Crazy Dean on Community.

- Supernatural and the ending heard 'round the internet.

Worst Moments:
- They're STILL on the farm?

TV News:
- Arrested Development will return in 2013 exculsively on Netflix Instant.

- NBC has decided to take Community off the fall schedule. Instead, the much more important and wildly creative Fear Factor will take its place.

- Ricky Gervais to return as Golden Globes host. Also, the Golden Globesnow has a reason to be watched.

The Battle of the Snow Whites

Weather because of Twilight or last year's Alice in Wonderland 2012 is going to be seeing the release of not one, but TWO new movies based off of the character Snow White. And as both released their trailers this past week, I figured now was as good a time as ever to say my thoughts on the subject.

So, "The Hunger Games" I Guess...

I may be one of the last people to say they haven't yet read The Hunger Games books, so I really can't comment on how faithful the movie will be to the books. However, I can say what I thought of the movie trailer that was recently released. So, ya, it looks like a movie...

Weekly Overview:
    An overall solid week so far. This week we had four show tie for the title of Best of the Week. How I Met Your Mother, New Girl, Community and Chuck all had really great episodes this week. In the end though, New Girl was truly the funniest and best and gets the crown of Best of the Week.
    Worst of the Week is an easy pick. Unfortunately Hell on Wheels series premiere failed to impress as it was really too bland and slow to make much of an impression. I'll stick with it for a while, but it's not looking good.

Best Moments:
- Glee and Chuck both had their best episode of the season so far. Nice return to form.

- Elvis Castle.

- Schmitt does parkour! And hates cats!

- Psych made baseball interesting. Amazing!

- Karaoke on Community. Nuff' said.

Worst Moments:
- Man, The Walking Dead needs to pick up the pace.

- How I Met Your Mother let Barney out of the Ducky Tie. It was fun while it lasted.

- Supernatural, why is Becky still alive?

TV News:
- Billy Crystal is going to host the Oscars now. Also air is good and the sky is blue.

- Howard Stern might join as a judge on America's Got Talent. Ok, why not?

See you later.

Eddie Murphy No Longer to Host Oscars

After Brett Ratner stepped down as the 84th Academy Awards producer due to using and anti-gay slur in an interview over the weekend, Eddie Murphy, who was set to host the event, has stepped down as the show's host. Though Murphy did not say why, it is safe to say that it is most likely due to Ratner, who brought Eddie onto the show and directed him in the new film Tower Heist, stepping down as well.

It is not yet known who will replace Murphy and Ratner, but this is a serious, albeit understandable, set-back for the Academy. So, tell me, who should replace Murphy and Ratner? And how do you feel about this whole mess?

See you later.
