TV Junkie: Shaun White's $@*! Posse; 'Yo Gabba Gabba!' Returns! No Music Performance at Oscars
Did anyone watch the halfpipe last night? How was it that NBC didn't have the time or resources to edit out all the expletives from Shaun White's posse?
We can't believe how incredibly psyched we are for the upcoming season of "Yo Gabba Gabba!" which starts on March 8th (10:30am on Nickelodeon). Featured guests in the first week alone include: Sarah Silverman, Weird Al Yankovic, Black Kids, Jack McBrayer, Paul Scheer, Weezer, Anthony Bourdain, Of Montreal, Mos Def, Devo, The Aquabats, Mark Mothersbaugh, and of course, Biz Markie. See Anthony Bourdain as a "doctor" in the above video.
There will be life after "Better Off Ted" for Jay Harrington who has been tapped as the lead in NBC's "Nathan vs. Nurture". While we're happy to see that Harrington will be back on TV soon, we decry the impending cancellation of "Better Off Ted" as it has been a genuinely fun and interesting show in ABC's portfolio.
Composers and performers who created Oscar-nominated songs will not be performing them at the Academy Awards on March 7th. Unfortunately they will still have all that embarrassing dancing.
