TV of 2011, thanks for the CUCKOO memories. Among my favorites:
Nuttiest talk show entrance and exit: Zach Galifianakis busted his way out from WITHIN CONAN O’BRIEN’S DESK because he doesn’t like walking through the curtains. At the end of the interview, he asked “Do you have a bathroom?” and then headed off. (The interview starts at the 3-minute mark in the clip above.)
Angriest outburst: On “Celebrity Apprentice,” Atlanta’s UnReal Housewife Nene Leakes informed Star Jones: “I WILL TAKE YOU DOWN. You pressed the last button in me, Miss Star Jones.”
Cheapest commercials: Will Ferrell wrote and performed for free in regional ads for Old Milwaukee Beer. In one, he goes handfishing in the Mississippi River, fails to nab any catfish but fortunately finds an unopened can of Old Milwaukee.
Funniest SNL skit: In “Kim’s Fairytale Divorce,” Kim nasally whined, “Whoopsies, I got divorced,” and she and her sisters shared post-breakup pain: “All week we’ve just been crying and crying and posing and getting our anuses bleached.”
Best new TV series: The REPUBLICAN PRIMARY DEBATES. Who can forget Rick Perry and the third thing he can’t remember?
