[Ed. note: Jim Galasso, who writes the WOW Report’s “From the Desk of the JG,” has of late not been. He tenses up, we think, gives himself blogger’s block. In his own blog, The JG, he’s all loose-limbed and fearless. So, while he’s sleeping, we’ve broken into The JG and stolen his latest post in its entirety – links, comments, and all.]

I think I’ve officially replaced The Trump Show with The Contender. It’s pretty good. And at the end, rather than some bored room (note the clever spelling. Damn am I quick. I bet no one has ever written that before. Note to self: In this week’s letter to Entertainment Weekly use the “bored room” line. Yeah, that’s sure to get me published. They’ll be forced to include me in the letters section. I will triumph. Okay, where was I? Am I still in the parenthesis? This has to be breaking some standard grammar rules.) there are two guys beating the shit out of each other. This is where reality tv should have gone years ago. Organized and unapologetic violence. It’s a beautiful thing. Sly is the man.
I’m lukewarm on Fat Actress. There’s only been the one episode so far, and it was mediocre. It’s got potential, but I thought the writing was weak. Obviously it’s a knock off of Curb. The music, the shooting style, the Hollywood cameos. But Curb is exponentially smarter and funnier. You just can’t compete with Larry David. So come up with your own shit. Why the docu-series look? It doesn’t make sense if you’re just going to write it and edit it as if it were a sitcom. Still, I think it could be funny. We’ll see.
Finally, I think it’s official. The OC is done. It’s a horrible show, with annoying characters, cheap publicity stunts, and corny storylines. I’m completely embarrassed that I still watch it. I don’t know how much more I’m willing to put up with. The question is, will Skylar ever take down the Seth Cohen poster in his office?
