TV.com's Swell-o-vision vs. Hell-o-vision (October 29)

  • 33comments

We know you've been busy putting together your Jim Belushi Halloween costume from According to Jim Season 5, so we went ahead and gathered up the best and worst TV moments of the week.


Swell:

... The "ZZ Top Gun" Halloween costume on Happy Endings
Or was it Max and Penny's mom-and-baby costume that was the highlight? Or Dave's extended "Ummmmmm"? Or Max's holiday comparisons? Or the "Turn over... this isn't over" messages from the neighborhood kids? Or the uniform/costume confusion in the convenience store? Man, what a fantastic episode.


... Happy 10th birthday, Pardon the Interruption!!
The Emmy-winning best show on ESPN is a decade old and a daily must-watch for sports fans. Tony and Mike are still bringing it after ten years of yelling and laughing at each other. Congratulations, guys. Plus, Obama gave them a shout out! Now please, cancel Dan Le Batard's show.


... It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's "CharDee McDennis" drinking game
The "game of games" indeed! It's like Cranium for masochistic alcoholics. And it's inevitably coming soon to college campus near you... and just after that, an emergency room near you.


... South Park's tribute to Broadway and BJs
The Book of Mormon creators took their Tony Award dominance and made a crude episode about how Broadway is all about fellatio. And Stephen Sondheim got involved in a "bro-down."


... Frasier is a MEAN son of a bitch!
Kelsey Grammer has left all comedy behind as the intense Chicago mayor Tom Kane in Starz's Boss. After a few years off, we can throw his name back into the Emmy race, but this time with the big boys in the Drama category.


... Gabe's "cinema of the unsettling" film on The Office
Poor Erin!


Hell:


... Rachel Cook's Performance on The X Factor
Of the myriad hellish performances this week, this one was the most uncomfortable to watch. It reminded us of Toddlers and Tiaras with Simon as the show mom.


... American Horror Story's pleas to DirecTV subscribers
Ryan Murphy has lent his voice, likeness, and time to a very important cause: Himself. And he does it with such enthusiasm.


... NBC spending $100 million to find a hit
Good luck with that, guys.


... The mess that is Man Up!
Tim Allen, you're safe. This show makes makes yours look like the best thing since Seinfeld.


... The Walking Dead's Andrea, professional zombie magnet
Why are the meatbags picking on her so much? Hasn't she been through enough already?
