Slainte! Grab some green, some kegs, some cabbage and corned beef, some shamrocks, and of course, your remote.

Your preview after the break.   Dogg After Dark 9/8c on MTV Busta gives credit where credit's due.

12 More Insanely Bad TV Commercials
Tuesday, March 17 by

A while back we scoured the internet to bring you a collection of the worst local tv ads. We ended up finding so many that we had to give you more. This time around the selection is far crazier and far crappier. Crapzier. “Enjoy!" JONES BIG ASS TRUCK RENTAL & STORAGE This is actually a fake but it’s a charming fake so it’s too hilarious to not include. Which is a shame because if he were real, I’m sure that Toby Jones would be crowned King of Them Internets. DYNAMIC PAWN SHOP

TUESDAY TV PREVIEW
Tuesday, March 10 by

So it's come to this. Another Tuesday of pretty random selections; Snoop Dogg talking 'heart' (as in the kind Rudy Ruettiger had) with some NFL superstars, the beginning and end of New York City as we know it, and Dave Mordal shooting fruitcakes into the air. Tomorrow, randomness gives way for one of the (if not the) best show on TV to return. Your preview after the break.

TELE-VISIONS: KALEY CUOCO
Monday, March 9 by

Over the past couple seasons, Monday night on CBS has officially become the most ridiculous night on television, thanks to Ms. Kaley Cuoco, who plays Penny on The Big Bang Theory. My guess is that Penny came about late in the show's development stages, in a meeting between the writers and network execs.  My guess is, it went down a little something like this:

Beginning March 15, Warner Bros. and Turner will partner to launch WB, a 24-hour Warner-branded channel that will bring its TV and film library to the country. [Variety]  If you work in the film or TV industry – don't worry.  They only outsource real jobs to India. We at Screen Junkies would like to think that eventually the channel will open up to original content, and one of our sources sent us this top secret proposal for a 2009 WB India Fall Lineup.  Seems like they're headed in that direction.See it after the jump:

Tuesday Night Preview
Tuesday, March 3 by

Perform a karate chop (or a nunchuk) to turn on that TV of yours, and then pull a flying jump kick onto the couch for a solid night of comedy from NBC.

Eastbound And Down EP 2: Rise Of The Mullet
Monday, February 23 by

Ok, I might have been a little harsh on this show in my review of the pilot. It seemed scattered and weak. But now having watched the second episode, which featured the introduction of Will Ferrell as a slick, fast-talking, package-tagging used car salesman, I'm going to change up my tune. This is the reason you never judge a show by it's first episode.

Big Hair Wednesday TV Preview
Wednesday, February 18 by

Another Wednesday, another brilliant episode of the labrynthian land of Lost. Also tonight, Demetri Martin examines the subject of 'power,' while Robert De Niro becomes a Godfather. One noteworthy tidbit-it's Conan O'Brien's last week before he gives Leno the boot, and not a moment too soon. Jimmy Fallon gets his shot at Conan's slot. Did that sound weird? Your TV preview after the break.

DTV Conversion: Where Did My Stories Go?
Wednesday, February 18 by

This is normally the time of day when I would publish all the TV recaps from previous night. But there really wasn't anything on, so no recappage. Instead, I thought I would take a moment to offer a bit of important info regarding a topic that will affect absolutely none of us. Yes, that's right. The conversion from analog to digital television signals that began to occur for many providers and stations last night. It is an historic occasion that future humans will see as one of the biggest leaps toward utter and compete domination at the hands of robots. Here is a very informative video that details the simple move from some sort of sine waves to some sort of ones and zeroes.

Tuesday TV Preview
Tuesday, February 17 by

 Unfortunately, TV is taking a longer than expected President's Day hiatus, leaving few good viewings for tonight's lineup.

That's alright, just skee-daddle over to your local movie rental establishment and scope out some hot new releases. Your TV-less preview after the jump.

REVIEWED: Eastbound & Down Pilot
Tuesday, February 17 by

In the last ten years HBO has been responsible for some of the best series out there. The Sopranos, The Wire, Deadwood, Entourage, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Six Feet Under– those were all quality shows that demonstrated what the network did best:  stellar storytelling with a serious edge. They have had some solid mini series in the last year with Generation Kill and John Adams that have continued this tradition. But with the exception of Flight Of The Concords, their new series have been a let down when compared to the legendary shows they've historically  released. East Bound And Down is a clear reminder of this.
