Bam, we are nearly in the middle of summer and what have you done to celebrate it? Well do something! These are the days you wish for all year of fun sun and kool aid so why the hell are you watching television? No one worth mentioning but in keeping with tradition I wont scrap the whole post this week. LL Cool J.. there ya go.. that’s all.

The best act of the week is once again on Jimmy Fallon although I’ve just about had enough of him (our local morning news feels obligated to blast his ‘funniest bit’ over and over on the hour)he scored the coolest chick in music, Chrissie Hynde.

Hey now summer is knocking on your door and you should be out there drinking beer and throwing foods on the grill. There is no need for you to be watching television and whoa.whoa..wait.. is that Sean Lennons band Ghost of a Saber Tooth bla bla bla?

Conor Oberst shows up on Fallon to make the middle class kids cry that their lives are so tough and Debbie Harry shows up to tell us that with enough plastic surgery and a endless wardrobe budget you can rock this town well into your 60s.

Remember how cool Harry Connick Jr used to be? So fresh faced and croonie? Now he looks as if he’s made of modeling clay and what color is he? Soy sauce colored flesh

All we can do is hope its better than the past few which have sucked at levels never before known to man. Summer is coming right? Cuz it’s been 40 degrees and raining in the NorthEast and if it doest change soon there will be hell to pa.

But the truth is peppered in with same old same olds like Keith Urban we have a band that just a short while ago was playing a 200 person venue in Hartford Connecticut (psst we were there). Fabulous news and faith in humanity semi restored (not really). Happy new week!

We should be headed in to the days of reruns soon-but until then late night TV is alive and well and …well awful. Foster The People and Neon Trees? Proving that we are too tired and too distracted to care what we watch anyway.

I gotta say this is one of the most diverse weeks ever and almost all of the shows are repeats. the Strypes, Frank Turner, Broken Bells are just a few of the more interesting weeks I have seen in a long time. Oh it still sucks but not as hard as weeks past.

Holy mother of Peace Train I take that all back, hands up for Jimmy Fallon who comes in with the one and only Yusef Islam on the 8th, showing up 2 days before his day at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Tuesday’s not dead.

Remember there are alternatives such as sleeping or reading or Netflix or hey how about heading out and seeing a live band? Just a thought.

I could sit here and whine about how no ‘good’ musical guests are ever on television but I’d be writing that to people who actually watch shows like The Voice or American Idol so my though is some of you are actually excited to see some of the acts sitting on the late night couches.

I am so thrilled for them and so psyched to have seen these guys live, its just the coolest thing ever and if you cant stay awake – then set your damn DVR. Other than that, the week is crap.

Truth is its still freezing here in the North East and there is no end in site. Its the point where we begin to question if it will ever get warmer. In keeping with this big chill we have a television line up as icy as a corpse.

appears that Craig Ferguson is the winner with Panic! At The Disco. I still cant wrap my arms around the Brenden Urie Panic! There were three other members who added a whole heck of alot of personality. It almost seems as if it shouldn’t be called PATD at all.

Hashtag Jimmy Fallon, Hashtag Seth Meyers, Hashtag RIP SNL. The masters of the desk have slipped into position and late night may never be the same

You cant help but love Jimmy Fallon. He’s got that boyish charm that will one day be creepy but until his face catches up with the calendar, he’s a riot. From impressions to musical genius- he deserves the holy late night desk.

Kermit the Frog is this weeks winner. Considering your options of The Flaming Lips or Pussy Riot a piece of felt with a hand up the backside is the most talented and least media pig of them all.

This is the time of year when depression moves in like your drunk uncle and it wont leave until the first worm shows up in the driveway. Until then there isn’t much to do but watch TV, read Twitter and bitch- which is pretty much all I do anyway.

Hey hey its Vampire Weekend! Those crazy New York hipbags are big time cool now! Making the rounds on the late night circuit after playing intimate venues theyre all over the place and hitting the big festivals too. Ah, watching the kids grow up

“We got nothin’ better to do, that watch TV and have a coupla brews”, so said Black Flag decades ago. Not so sure that flies these days. Id rather swallo glass some days rather than watch TV. There’s nothing there.

The same lame ass acts go from show to show to promote the same thing on different networks. This week we have Mark Wahlberg hoggin up the couch but we do have some interesting things too

No way are the networks gonna give you anything more than brass tacks when they know full well you’re either in the depths of holiday depression or drunk has hell and puking on your neighbors lawn.

This weeks biggest nightmare is the horrible Bad Religion and the arrogant Bret Gurewitz jerking it up on Conan O’Brian. The question is will he be the label owning businessman or the old poser punk trying to be 20 again? I’m going with the later and much like women with too much Botox its almost pathetically sad to witness.

I have always love Lowe’s voice and I love how it’s remained so true. With his blinding white hair he is hitting the talk show circuit this week.

Hey welcome to the holiday season! Your gift is a lame week of television with not much action. Two Door Cinema Club and Bastille should be held as the winners of this weeks boob tube- the rest-not so good.

It’s a time when most people are taking a break, they have more leisure time and could watch more TV. So it’s actually a great time for quality programming- but it doesn’t happen.

Colbert’s dry humor can be way too dry and when he tries to be coy it often gets lost in the sandstorm. I do hope Ms M.I.A. snarks his ass off. She can be such a beast and he is such an easy hit.

But in the case with all living things she grew up. Got married, got boring, lost focus and disappeared only to divorce, record crap and end up engaged to the dude from Nickelback. What?

As much as I absolutely hate Jimmy Kimmel, I actually left his disgusting show on my this week just to fill space. This in no way endorses that human sack of crap but hey if you feel like watchin Florida Georgia Line I say go for it.

The good is that Mr Elvis Costello will also be on. Monday night with the uber hep Steve Nieve!! You should know I am a massive Costello fan as is my co-editor Iman and although neither of us would stay up to see this bit on The Tonight Show- three cheers for On Demand!

Guys guys!! Remember when Pearl Jam were cool? “Jeremy spoke..” and all that jazz? Remember how brutally hot Eddie Vedder was? That dude was smoking crazy hot. Jumping off amps in his plaid and fatigue glory. That hair, that underbite.. daaaaaaaaaaaaamn.

Mary Magpie’s heroes 21 Pilots show up though. Here is a band that she trudged out to see in a venue that held 125 people (and wasnt a sell out!) less than a year ago. Suddenly they’re everywhere
