    A 100 Year Old Woman

    What a tremendous spirit Dorothy Custer has!  She's 100 years old and she's still sharp as a tack, telling jokes to Jay Leno.  Sure, maybe she wouldn't be able to keep up with a young gun like Jimmy Fallon, but then again, I don't know - I actually bet she could.  She was honestly as funny as a stand-up comic!  Plus, she went into the touching story of how she met her husband, so she made me cry as well as laugh.  Gotta appreciate those that came before us, especially during this most wonderful time of the year.

    NOTE: Oh wow, when I wrote this, I thought it was recent, but this is from 2011!  She's still alive, and what I also didn't know is that Dorothy Custer is ACTUALLY a comedian!  No wonder she was so gosh-darned funny!  Certainly a National Treasure.

    Double NOTE: She went base jumping at 102.

    Live* from New York... it's TVgasm Tuesday! This week, for some reason, almost every piece of news somehow deals with SNL alumni, so let's find out together how many SNL jokes I can fit into this post (my guess is zero jokes, maybe ONE joke at the most, so don't get your hopes up). First up, arguably the most loved SNL alumna, Tina Fey, talked with GQ Magazine about her new movie, Admission, and, also arguably, stole my heart. 

    Reports surfaced that SNL head writer Seth Meyers may be in line to take over Jimmy Fallon's late night slot, though this decision is based on the assumption that Fallon will be  take over for Leno, and that Leno will peaceably leave the studio and not try to organize some kind of occupy protest. We already know Will Ferrell and Kristin Wiig are working together on Anchorman 2, but did you know they may be working on an indie comedy called Welcome to Me? I didn't know that, but I'm ready to throw all of my money at a movie screen in order to watch it. Sorry guys, those SNL jokes really got away from me, I'm not a machine; I'm not a magician! Let's see what TVgasm has for us:

    This Week:

    There's a lot of B.S. floating around out there: The Kardashians, Tim Tebow... so much that I can't keep track of all the malarkey. Let TVgasm help you navigate through it all by featuring the "B.S. of the Day!" Click here to watch.

    IT'S CHRISTMAS, or I mean, basically. It's also TVgasm Tuesday, and since this is the last Tuesday before Christmas, I'm gonna give you enough TV news to tide you over for two whole weeks instead of just one.

    We had one and a half finales this week: How I Met Your Mother had its two-part midseason finale, which somehow managed to answer questions without actually answering them, AND after six well-dressed seasons of emotional glaring, Gossip Girl had her series finale, finishing up with $3000 lace handkerchiefs and a surprise twist.

    Also, when I think of "comedy," I totally think of Barbra Streisand yelling at Seth Rogen for several hours in a car, so when I heard about their new movie I thought "Oh of course, somebody finally made this, just in time for the world to end!" Let's face our imminent doom with TVgasm!

    This Week:

    Probably the best thing about the Internet is the comments section. The comments section of ANYTHING. There's always one person posting a chain letter (what is this AIM in 2004?!), and, of course, there's the always-immortal-and-ever-articulate "Wow. just wow." TVgasm's comments are just as lively: Click to read the best of 2012!

    Did you stop by the TVgasm holiday party? You didn't?! It was THE social event of the season! There was boxed wine! There were miscellaneous housewives! There was even a wild Lohan sighting! Click here to get the scoop on this totally awesome party that totally happened and was real.

    At a certain time, one just gets tired of denim shirts and puns, am I right? Obviously, I'm referring to Jay Leno, because I just can't bring myself to watch his show anymore. Maybe 2014 will bring a good host to the Jay Leno time slot? Click to find out who may be replacing Leno in a few years (that is, if we don't all die in 3 days, thanks Mayans).


    Remember: If you're commenting on something online, let's try at least to keep it interesting. Can we put a moratorium on the "Wow. just wow" forever?

    Louie, Come Back!

    Are you guys aware that I'm a fan of Louis C.K. and his show Louie? Well, I am, and if you aren't a fan, you should be. The show wrapped it's third season last night and oh what a season it was. Here are just a few of my favorite episodes (they're all my favorite).

    1) "Telling Jokes/Set Up" - I love this episode because Louie's daughter tells an incredibly odd joke that I love. A joke where you don't know the punchline and it doesn't necessarily make any sense. Also, anytime Louie dates is wonderful.

    2) "Daddy's Girlfriend Part 1 & 2" - I'm lumping arcs together and you can't stop me. Maria Bamford appears in both episodes and Parker Posey convinces Louie to wear a dress. Hilarity ensues.

    3) "Ikea/Piano Lesson" - Louie brings back a past (crazy) love from season 1 (and she's still crazy). Sarah Silverman pops up to give Louie some advice on his relationship with Marc Maron. Plus, we get to see old clips of them all doing stand up.

    4) "Late Show Part 1, 2, & 3" - Louie's battle to become a late night talk show host. He makes Jay Leno not look like a bad guy which is impressive because he's totally a bad guy. David Lynch plays a pretty big role and it gives the episodes a Twin Peaks feel. Chris Rock and Jerry Seinfeld have bit parts and we get to see what it would be like if Louie hosted a talk show. It looked good.

    5) "New Year's Eve" - Louie can make me feel emotions that no other show really does. He makes me laugh, he makes me sad, he makes me see the way the world is. Amy Poehler plays his sister and the episode as a whole is heartbreakingly good.

    Louie is amazing. Watch it all.

    The 56th Annual Grammy Awards

    Did you get a chance to catch the 56th Grammy Awards last night? If not, here are some highlights of the awards show so you have something to talk about with everyone else in the world who watched it.

    Daft Punk won four awards, including Album of the Year. Royals by Lorde won Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance. Kacey Musgraves beat out Taylor Swift for Best Country Song, which I must say that I am shocked! Relieved, but still shocked.

    There were so many great performances last night like Pink and Nate Ruess' song "Try" as she flew above the audience doing aerial tricks. I can't even walk and talk at the same time, but she's just spinning and singing like that's a normal thing. I'm convinced Pink is not human.

    Speaking of inhuman, Beyonce and her hubby, Jay Z preformed "Drunk In Love" which had the audience on their feet of course, but one of the biggest highlights of last nights award show was Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' performance. Not only did they win 4 Grammys, including best new artist, they also sang their song "Same Love" while Queen Latifah conducted 34 weddings at once, both gay and straight. And if that wasn't amazing enough, towards the end of the song after Latifah pronounced the 34 couples married, Madonna showed up in a white suit with a pimp cane? She performed her song "Open Your Heart" as the newlyweds had their first dance. There were tears of joy from everywhere, and now all those couples have the coolest wedding story ever! Not going to lie, I'm kind of jealous.

    I think that's all you need to know to survive human interaction today. Oh wait. Did I mention Paul McCartney not only won a Grammy for best rock song, but him and Ringo Starr preformed "Queenie Eye?" That was pretty iconic.

    The Super Bowl!

    How about that sports game, huh, you guys? It was pretty crazy, right? Pretty close game. Here are a few things you may have missed during the game:

    1. A Touchdown

    There were so many during all of those quarters that you may or may not have missed at least one.

    2. Jay-Z

    I didn't see him! Did you? I thought for sure Beyoncé would bring out HOVA but apparently not! I'm kinda disappointed; not gonna lie.

    3. Girls

    If you were watching the Super Bowl then you most definitely missed last night's episode of Girls. That's too bad.

    Sports are neat. Now let's all pay attention to Hockey right? Go Sabres! Tweet me about sports. @MrChrisDonahue

    It's TVgasm Tuesday once again, and as a welcome gift to April, I have possibly the most news I've ever had in one post. Let's get down to business right away. I'm hearing a lot about a Finding Nemo sequel called Finding Dory. I don't know that many details, but I'm assuming the movie will be about finding someone. Possibly Dory. Stay tuned for more details. Game of Thrones premiered last night, so we all got to learn who among our friends are the undercover nerds.

    Also, The Walking Dead had its season finale, which you should read about. Also did you know Taylor Swift is scheduled to guest star on New Girl in a few weeks? Listen, maybe she'll be great, and if she is you have my full permission to tell me I am a terrible person, but my prediction is it'll be rough, and she'll play some kind of deluded crazy-pants ex-girlfriend (….so like herself), and everyone will politely clap until she's done. Bravo renewed a bunch of Real Housewife series, proving once and for all that these women will never die and these shows will run forever. Let's see what TVgasm has...

    This Week:

    For a few weeks now there have been rumors floating around about Jimmy Fallon taking over Jay Leno's late night spot, and finally the two made a video together addressing the rumors (in the best way possible obviously). I mean, I'm a big fan of Jimmy Fallon because of this moment, but we'll see what happens.

    Americas Most Wanted has been on for…my entire life I'm pretty sure, so when I heard it was canceled I was a little relieved to be honest. I mean it was on the Lifetime Network, the place where TV shows go to die, and are reborn into TV movie gems like Cyberbully, starring Emily Osment. 

    FX is starting a new network called FXX (which I thought was supposed to be like FX for women, like some kind of chromosome joke, but apparently not), and a bunch of shows are moving exclusively over to that network! Click to find out which ones!

    Remember: If you want to live forever, follow the Real Housewives diet of hard alcohol, Diet Coke, and meanness.

    Ok guys, it's TVgasm Tuesday once again, not a minute too soon, too. I don't know if you remember last week, but…uh I got a little angry, and well maybe we both said some things that we didn't mean (mostly me, since you didn't say anything). Anyways, as an "I'm sorry for being mean via the internet", I decided to make this TVgasm about awesome things that are happening in entertainment news. Things that make me want to give someone a pat on the back. Ya know, wholesome stuff

    This Week:

    First and foremost, good for you Liza Minnelli. Thank you for returning to Arrested Development, that was a solid move. Most things you do are perf, but this trumps everything. I hope you can finally conquer your dizzies, and live your life in peace.

    Hey Jay Leno, thanks for taking a giant pay cut on the Tonight Show. Granted you're still making 15 million dollars for having a large chin on camera, but what can I say. Four for you Jay Leno, you go Jay Leno.

    Also, and this one's a big one, I want to give a pat on the back to every new TV show that's premiered for the fall season, because, hey, you are the reason for TVgasm Tuesdays, and TVgasm Tuesday is my favorite day of the week. Go read the review of all these new shows (be sure to catch parts one and two)

    Remember: If you are even slightly literate, and know how to type (or even just shout words at someone), you can probably get a pilot on NBC in the near future.
