Minnesota Reporter Lee Valsvik run over on live TV

Lee Valsvik got a little more than she bargained for during a live shot for the KARE 11 Saturday show. Laughed for a good 3 mins on this one…

I don’t do Karate, I do Kar-azay

"I don't do Karate, I do Kar-azay."

“I don’t do Karate, I do Kar-azay.” Bernice

Quite possibly the best piece of reality television I have seen all year. If you haven’t tuned in to South Beach Tow, you need to. Wednesday’s at 9:30 on TruTV.

Lady Thinks She Has A Haunted Toaster

Originally run on the “Today” show, in May, 1984, this might be the best interview about evil ever shown on television. Hold on to your peanut butter. This lady makes a convincing case. Richard Dominick, the interviewer (and producer from Jerry Springer) made this astounding moment in TV history possible.

Need to see the full interview? Well make yourself a piece of toast and sit back my friend. You are about to witness a segment that should have won every journalism award in existence. CLICK HERE.

MTV finally answers why they don’t play music videos anymore

Video clips of Mr. Wizard being a dick to kids. I think the millennial generation could use a dosage of this guy to take them down a notch. No participation ribbon for you!

For those of you who don’t know, this was a program on the Nickelodeon children’s television called Mr. Wizard’s World. The on-air host was Don Herbert demonstrated the science behind ordinary things with kids and pretty much shattered their dreams on a regular basis. It was wonderful.

Dexter Season 7: 2 Minute Sneak Peek

Dexter Season 7

Showtime presents a sneak peek from the upcoming season of Dexter. A show when watched after Breaking Bad can really mess with your head.

NYC Sitcom Map

The amount of shows and movies based in NYC is staggering. As a guy from Minnesota, I always kinda grew tired of seeing everything based in NY or LA. Of course, we have had our share here in Minnesota too. Okay well three: 1. Coach 2. Little House on the Prairie, and 3. The Mary Tyler Moore Show. If it weren’t for Tim Allen or The Coen Brothers, we probably wouldn’t have any films based here.

The formula for every TV news report

Charlie Brooker’s “How to Report the News” shows us how every single news report follows a very specific formula. (Brief NSFW language).

The UK’s most legendary news photobomber

Paul Yarrow has appeared in the background of live news reports on BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Sky News at random locations and at random times. It seems if there is a camera crew about at the moment, he is there too. He takes his photobombing and videobombing to a whole new level of awesomeness.

He has also been spotted in the background of an episode of the Antiques Roadshow.

2011 Guide to Fall Television

The end of summer pretty much makes us all depressed. If you live in Minnesota, you realize as the sun sets earlier, that the cold wet stuff is on the way. The silver lining here is that fall television will be ramping up. There appears to be some gems out there, so warm up the DVR and get familiar with your options. You can also assume that the majority of these will get cancelled just as you start to like them. Such is life.

Read the full list from Gawker here:

My picks for new shows?
Up All Night – NBC – 9/14/11 (Good cast, previews look promising)
The X Factor – FOX – 9/21/11 (Might be cool since that they allow bands)
Person of Interest – CBS – 9/22/11 (Created by J.J. Abrams and Jonathan Nolan. My interest is high.)
Enlightened – HBO – 10/10/11 (Stars Timm Sharp, Laura Dern, Luke Wilson, and many more.) Hard to explain, so view trailer here.

Returning shows you should probably be watching.
Sons of Anarchy
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Modern Family
Boardwalk Empire
The Walking Dead
