Untertainment Weakly (11-18-11)

By Jake

Community has dropped off of NBC’s schedule for mid-season replacements.  This is the worst TV news this year.

Neil Patrick Harris will guest co-host “Live with Kelly!”  I don’t know if you’re into that sort of thing, but it is happening.

Warner Bros. is planning on a live action/animated Lego movie.

Chelsea Clinton has joined NBC News as a full-time correspondent.

Chelsea Handler has signed a two-year deal with E! to continue her ““Politically Incorrect” for morons” style show.

Ricky Gervais will once again host the Golden Globes.

Comedy Central has renewed “South Park” for three more seasons, taking the show to 2016 with 20 seasons.

Two more seasons of “Survivor!”

“The Joy Behar Show” has been canceled.  You’ll have to go elsewhere if you want to not watch a TV show now.

NBC has ordered a pilot for a “The Munsters” reboot series.  I have no idea why their ratings are so low with genius ideas like this.  I mean, who wouldn’t want to watch a remake of “The Munsters”? 

Movies Out Today
Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 - A two hour movie about boring vampires getting married to a pregnant white girl who cannot show any emotion.  Not convinced yet?  THIS IS PART 1 of a 2 part epic!  FUCK YES!!!  If you want to see what the female/gay version of a person who is really into “Star Wars” looks like, go see this film.  You will not be disappointed, except by the film itself.

Happy Feet 2 - Dancing penguins.  Yes, penguins that dance.  I’m not 100% sure that this movie is about dancing penguins, but if it is, then fuck you if you see this.  Kids do not need to go to the theater.  This is something that most people do not realize.  Just love your kids and they’ll be fine; you do not need to show them a shitty film about dancing penguins.  Take them to a zoo and show them real penguins.  Or just give them a hug, you neglectful piece of shit.

Other Thoughts
“Community” dropping off of the mid-season schedule sucks.  The episode that aired yesterday was so good.  And now we have to wait for more!  I hope that the new Chelsea Handler show is terrible and is canceled immediately.  Putting it on the same night as “Whitney” is actually a good idea.  It will be interesting to see the ratings they pull in, I guess.  Still, whatever is put up against “Big Bang Theory” on Thursday is going to suffer.



  2. In my dimension, Chelsea Clinton is the daughter of a former President and not a news anchor. The subtle differences between this dimension and the one from which I came are pretty amazing.

  3. This is one of the most depressing OWEs yet. Looking forward to Ricky Gervais hosting the Golden Globes though. Maybe I'll even watch it!

  4. Yeah, not a lot of good news this week. On the plus side, Community still gets a full 22 episode season. Also, Arrested Development is officially coming back for a fourth season that will air exclusively on Netflix.

  5. Fyi, the girl in 'Breaking Dawn' is pregnant with VAMPIRE child! What do you think now eh?

    Also I bought an open ended ticket to New York City so I can go sit outside the studio headquarters until 'Community' is put back on the air. Just to be on the safe side.

  6. No good news? But I thought Community might be cancelled?
