This is a hilarious read: Enjoy here
The major highlight of election night was (sorry, not Obama’s victory) CNN’s Anderson Cooper talking with Black Eyed Peas’ singer Will.i.am via Hologram. It was hilarious and awesome. I laughed out loud, literally, until the thing was over. Anderson Cooper (along with Wolf Blitzer and CNN) has got to be one of the vainest TV personalities of this age!

On a serious note though, Obama’s victory was truly a great moment in history. I am glad to have witnessed it, and it truly was a happy ending to this long, seemingly neverending, reality show of a presidential campaign season.

One of my heroes, original funny man of Monty Python fame, John Cleese, was on Keith’s show on MSNBC tonight. It was a total laugh-fest. Keith’s sarcasm can be funny, but Cleese took it to a whole new level, and I laughed out loud, literally, for the entire segment he was on.
Okay, this is too funny!!! Obama sings to Kanye West, featuring John McCain, Sarah Palin, and George Bush.
On Friday’s edition of “Real Time with Bill Maher,” which is one of my favourite TV shows, guests Andrew Sullivan and Will.i.am sparred with host Maher over his outspoken anti-religious views. It was an interesting segment of the show, and I was impressed with Sullivan’s open stance on his faith, and how it differs from the term “religion,” which Maher brands as the cause of all the problems in the world today.

The 2008 MTV Video Music Awards was quite entertaining, but not close to some great nights we have seen in the past.
It was great to see a rejuvenated Britney Spears at the awards show, although it was a shame that she won the night’s big awards, including video of the year. MTV clearly kissed up to Britney, to make up for the disaster at last year’s awards show. Likewise Kanye West, who scored the closing performance, a year after he threw a “Kanye moment” and spazzed out backstage at the awards show.
