TV.com's Swell-o-vision vs. Hell-o-vision (August 6)

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

Swell


... Jon Stewart's hilarious take on CNN's Prop 8 coverage



... Louie C.K.'s mom from hell
Even mothers aren't immune to his twisted sense of humor.




... Seeing Miles' butt on Work of Art
Cubist, with some neo-Classical post-modern impressionism thrown in.


... Julie Klausner's new Lizzie Caplan-and-Will Ferrell-developed TV show on HBO!
Lizzie Caplan deserves to have an entire cable network devoted to her, but for now we'll settle for this.


... Amy Poehler and Will Arnett's second baby, born today
Bow down before the funniest human being in the universe! His name is... Abel.

Hell


... Mickey Rourke piling on the street cred in this interview; Jay Leno just has no idea what to do with all the gangster talk.



... All the American Idol chatter
Please stop it and get back to us when the whole judge thing is all settled.


... Evil alien cats on Futurama
Wasn't that the plot of Cats & Dogs? Also, weak. [Ed. note: Disagree? TV.com writer Steve Heisler is on your side!]


... The premiere of another edition of Real Housewives
The franchise is having a bad influence on aging attention whores.


... The leaked Lost epilogue
That was it? Well, at least we saved ourselves from spending $70 on the DVD set.

What made your list of loves and hates this week?

Thanks for showing interest in a show, which has normally not drawn to much attention on tv.com, even if it's only Miles butt.:)

@shartman63 - Actually, the 12 minute epilogue did leak into the internet last week and that's what the article is refering too! And in my opinion it did not add anything to the series...

Miles, on Work of Art, can show his butt all he wants too. It won't change the fact that he is a total ASS.

It seems like the editors here on tv.com and the people who write these article do NOTHING but hate on everything.. how about focusing on the positive aspects of TV today instead of every article being about how bad something was or is?. just a suggestion

Not enough answers. Not enough answers. Not enough answers. Don't you people have anything else to say?

Really? Who cares about American Idol? Can't that show just go away?

While a few loose ends were wrapped up they still left a myriad of mysteries unresolved so while I won't say it was a complete waste, they frankly didn't do enough..

That Lost epilogue was really a waste!

I had to watch the Jon Sewart on another site but it was very funny.

But the Futurama episode was basically undermining that silly plotline with its completely nonserious take on it--I found it rather funny and subversive, actually. The LOST epilogue, however, I will agree was stupid.

Any site that insults Futurama and Lost in the same article must have some kind of brain deficiency.

Are you kidding me about the Lost epilogue? That would have made the ending so much better! TV.com Staff Writer: please stop sucking so hard.

I so disagree with you on futurama, this season has been great since the pilot and is only getting better.
I find your reason for bashing it quite weak.

Have you guys seen the new season? It is terrible... especially when you compare it to the perfect past 5 seasons

Of course they would be excited to hear it was returning, because they think it would be like before, and so did i
