TV.com's Swell-o-vision vs. Hell-o-vision (April 23)

Here's what we thought was out of sight and just not right on TV this week.

Swell:

... Glee's take on Madonna
The all-Madge episode of Fox's song-and-dance hit was great! It's the first time Madonna has been tolerable in, like, 10 years!



...All hail Satan!
Supernatural's version of the leader of the netherworld took on Gods from other religions and wiped the floor with them. Take that, Ganesha!

... Will Ferrell's Bitchhunter
Another successful 30 Rock guest star. If only Julianne Moore were better.

... Community's tribute to Goodfellas
When it comes to spoofing pop culture, Community can't be beat.

... J-Stew on the South Park censorship
Jon Stewart stuck up for the cartoon's free speech in typically hilarious, Daily Show fashion.



Hell:

...The Black Eyed Peas on American Idol
The most overexposed "band" in the world on the show that gives unknowns exposure? Too much exposure, man.



... 30 Rock's too-late Conan jokes
It might have worked had it been topical, but sorry Tina Fey, that ship already sailed.

... Ke$ha on Saturday Night Live
What the heck is a Ke$ha, anyway?



... Hayden Panettiere's new 'do
Apparently every woman needs to try the short haircut thing once. Sorry, Hayden, but it's not for you.

... Whoever leaked that Lost call sheet
Even if it's fake, we still hate you.

What's on your list of loves and hates this week?

She's an unknown who should remain unknown! She picks horrible songs with redundant lyrics. Her horrible costumes make her hard to forget unfortunately, like a PTS (Post Traumatic Syndrome) event.

The Black Eyed Peas on "Idol" were just horrible, but it wasn't all their fault. Their number featured the worst audio mixing of pop music heard on TV in 30 years. "Idol" usually shines in this department, but that night the BEPs sounded like they were on network TV in the 60's or '70s. Back then, the engineers only knew how to mix orchestras. Think the Rolling Stones on Ed Sullivan or early SNL. Eeek. How did that audio make it on the air?

Gabriel calling Lucifer "Lucy", on Supernatural, was the best of the week. The confrontation between the two brothers was awsome, and Mark Pellegrino making Lucifer almost cry facing Gabriel was breathtaking. Poor Lucy! hahaha

I think that Community is one of the most underrated shows on television right now. It hilarious and doesn't seem to get much attention at all. It's a freaking great show!

I actually liked the Conan jokes on 30 Rock... they were actually pretty funny this week! I mean who cares if it's been a while... think about it. When the whole fiasco was going on, that's when the writers were probably writing the episode. Just give them a little bit of a break! It was FUNNY! And any show which makes fun of the network they're on, gets a spot in my books! And I think you'd agree with me when I say, NBC deserves to be made fun of!
