Television Lite: December 16th – December 20th, 2013

Posing Like A Boss



















Santa is getting the sleigh a tune up and the ho ho ho is on the horizon but the bah humbug is all over your television.  Did you even realize that Johnny Mathis is still alive?  I suppose he sums up Christmas pretty well but Jake Bugg?  Is that kid still around?  Yep. 

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.    The consolation?  Will Ferrell is out there hustling Anchorman 2, so that’s a glimmer of laughter in an otherwise sea of mediocrity.
