The Emmys 2014
On Monday, the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards took place in Los Angeles, and there were plenty of highlights (and low-lights) from the show. There has been a collective "eh" over Seth Meyer's performance as host, which is pretty much what is said about anyone hosting award shows, so good job Seth? "Modern Family" and "Breaking Bad" continued their reigns on the Emmys, combining for eight awards on the night. The highlight of the night for me, as a "Billy on the Street" fan, was Billy Eichner hitting the street with Meyers asking unsuspecting people about the Emmys (video to the left).
It has been on record for quite some time that I believe "Friends" was an overrated television show. That being said, whenever the cast of a popular show gets back together, it's a big deal (see: the "Full House" reunion on Jimmy Fallon). Jennifer Aniston was joined by Courtney Cox and Lisa Kudrow to read some, well, interesting fan fiction written by Jimmy Kimmel. As you can imagine, it gets pretty ridiculous. My nominations for the next reunion: "Home Improvement," "Family Matters," and last but not least, "Kenan & Kel." Come on SNL, make that last one happen!
College Football Returns
After way too much waiting, football season has now officially arrived. The 2014 college football season kicked off this week with plenty of great games on the schedule. This is the first season that will use a new playoff format to determine the champion at the end of the year, and for a lot of people, it was a long time coming. Instead of a computer determining which two teams will play for the National Championship, it will be four teams chosen by a selection committee! Okay, that doesn't sound much better, but it's a step in the right direction. With more teams having a chance at a title, hopefully we'll see more plays like the one from last season's Iron Bowl between Alabama and Auburn (video to the left).
What were you talking about this week?
