Some people don't like her style but she imitates no one and she's going to bring that attitude to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards on September 12th: Chelsea Handler will be the hostess with the mostest. We were at last year's VMAs in NYC which was a shizophrenic affair remembered only for Kanye West's crashing of Taylor Swift's award and not much else. Handler doesn't suffer idiots well and since the MTV crowd is full of idiots we're convinced she will put more than a few in their place. Seriously, we weren't even remotely considering watching the VMAs this year until we got the announcement of Handler's involvement. Who was it at MTV that came up with this brilliant idea? Dude, take your brains and go to a real network ASAP, they're being wasted at MTV.
We've talked it up enough and are pleased to see Andre Braugher nominated for an Emmy but if you haven't watched "Men of a Certain Age" here's your chance to pre-order in the season 1 DVD set. This is a good sign because it means you'll be able to Netflix it as well. This is a show whose episodes are worth multiple viewings and will stand the test of time.
We've seen the premiere of CBS' "Hawaii Five-0" and we think it's good, fun action TV with potential to be a hit. We talked to series star Scott Caan at the TCA summer sessions (see vid clip at end of post) so we're sorry to hear that he popped his ACL while on set. It's cool that the series will incorporate his injury into the plot but we hope he has a quick and comfortable recovery.
FX's "Sons of Anarchy" season 3 doesn't premiere until Tuesday, September 7 at 10pm but we had to share with you what FX sent us. Check out the video clip at the end of the post showing the #SOA guide and DVD of the first four episodes. We've seen the premiere and it's very good - we can't wait to dig into the DVD!
The TV Junkie Plan: "Pitchmen" (What will Sully do without Billy Mays?), "Curb Your Enthusiasm"/"Curb: The Discussion" (Ed Crasnick, Walter Kirn, Paul Provenza, Merrill Markoe), "Chelsea Lately" (Elisabeth Shue)
