Letterman is still making the Late Night world roll over and play dead. The Prez leading the pack, with Tina Fey in the middle, and Mumford And Sons and the Dave Matthews Band bringing up the rear, it is all just another reason to tear your eyes away from Fallon for the last two weeks of history. Meanwhile, though, following Blur (and puppy races) this week, look for Noel Gallagher next week. I wonder if Noel will play a gig?

Now FOX are threatening to do to it what NBC did to “Peter Pan”, ergo not much. It is a sign of the times that they don’t think the Frank homosexuality (“it’s not all bad, it’s not even half bad…”) and indeed hereosexuality might not be questionable for prime time television.

I am going with Chris Brown as the Talk Show guest of the week, with Taylor Swift (and John Oliver in the same show) a close second. I am not sure what Taylor has to sell, maybe her reputation as taylor and her gang of lawyers sue everything that moves every day of the week: she is like Disney suing Ma and Pa toy stores called Timberbell’s Home -as though the name belonged to Disney and not J.M. Barrie/ As for Chris Brown, who was 18 years old when he attacked Rihanna and Brown could join a monastery tomorrow and the headline would read: Woman beater finds God

Saturday Night Live is almost as old as I am! This is kind of crazy to even think about it, but on February 15th, the famous TV show will celebrate its 40th Anniversary with a crazy musical lineup: Paul McCartney, Kanye West – are these two becoming siamese twins these days? – Justin Timberlake, Paul Simon and Taylor Swift….

I honestly thought I would get a bit melancholy in watching it or bored but just the opposite happened . The mixing of history and music worked so incredibly well that I was actually able to sit still through the entire program- and that is a rarity for someone with the extreme ADD I seem to posses.

With Barbra Streisand, he skipped the game but otherwise he was Rolling Stone reviewing a Springsteen album. You can’t trust him, you really really can’t. Fallon has no sense of proportion and it is like it is cute for him to lie about what his real feelings are and it isn’t cute at all.

What’s so cool about a middle aged, grumpy, Scottish Dr. Who? Not much is my claim, I am still going through withdrawal from the leaving of the only Doctor to ever go to Coachella. The Who who broke Who in the US. The only Who who matters. Matt Smith.

Full blown CD’s of acoustic songs are not my normal cup of tea but at least I didn’t cringe or quit listening to any of these songs in disgust. Zak Smith can write a song with melody and I imagine the Springsteen influences and comparisons will level out in the future. If I were to grade this I would give this a B .

For all the daring do of switching the young Smith with the 26 years older Capaldi, the problem isn’t age, the problem is charm offensive and weirdness -when you don’t like the Doctor or his companion, maybe it is time to take a break from the series? Next week is a Daleks story, so the week after that should tell the story.

The keeper here is Michael Cera on Letterman. Cera -the Superbad actor who made unassuming a lifestyle choice, has a pretty good album just released, True That, which you can stream (or boy) here and may I recommend the Blaze Foley cover “Clay Pigeons”.

Dolly Parton and Taylor Swift. There you have it- the stand outs of the week and perhaps I should spell that weak. There are some other cool bits though. Mikhail Baryshnikov (who my mom had a massive crush on) is on Tavis (say who?) and Jimmy Kimmel sits his ass on Kelly and Michael. What a drag that is. Meh, carry on.

BAM! There goes July. August is right there- dont miss it or you’ll be sobbing ‘where did the summer go?’ Get out there, get a sunburn, drink too much booze, sweat til your clothes stick to you, run through a garden hose… watch Jenny Lewis?

As we speak, Angela Bassett, who did such a great job as the long stemmed human God Tina Turner in “What’s Love Got To Do With It” is directing Yaya Dacosta as Whitney and Arlen Escarpata as Bobby Brown in the Lifetime Movie version of the tragic “How will I Know?” singer’s life, “Whitney”.

Lil Jon! That’s about it my dears. A guy whose voice sounds so pissed off its terrifying is sitting down on the interview couch this week to intimidate Wendy Williams (who is pretty beast come to think of it). There is also Phish, who should give Fallon a contact high (and maybe you at home as well) with their jam band nonsense

If youre a regular joe working class stiff the only thing good about this week is that its a 4 day run til you can get the hell out of your job and go drink or sleep. Americans will cook on a grill wave a flag and puke up Coors in the name of Freedom.

Summer is in full swing and you should be outside around a bonfire or something. Instead you’re munching Cheetos from a bag in your underwear with the air conditioner on full blast suffering from insomnia as you worry about your job or some other nonsense.
