My opinion of new shows changes at the drop of a hat, so check back in coming weeks for deletions. Update: I’ve deleted all the new shows and a few old ones from the grid which I no longer watch. So much wasted potential.

The Dead Weather on Gotham

“Treat Me Like Your Mother” by The Dead Weather (Jack White & Alison Mosshart) was featured during the interrogation scene in the series premiere of Fox’s Batman prequel Gotham. The song is from The Dead Weather’s debut album, Horehound.

Fave TV Comedy #1: Billy on the Street

We in the Muruch household have been meaning to post about our two fave tv comedies: Billy on the Street and Drunk History.

Billy on the Street began on Funny or Die and now airs on the Fuse channel. The show follows comedian Billy Eichner as he runs through the streets of NYC shouting and playing bizarre pop culture games with often confused bystanders and occasional guest celebrities.

My three fave scenes were 1) Billy’s rant about Cameron Diaz, in which he yells for her “to ruin more things!” 2) his “Lana Del Race for the Cure,” featuring several sleepy, disoriented models in Lana Del Ray costumes and 3) his “John Mayer or PepĂ© Le Pew?” game with Olivia Wilde…
