The Entertation Index: December 23

December 23, 2009

Amber, Jax and — CBS has ordered scripts for the new police procedural/drama Jax and Amber, which will focus on two female detectives with “a unique insight into crimesolving.” The duo will bust perps while shopping for purses and baking pies. And don’t even get them into hot pursuit, because neither of them can drive. Fellas, am I right? Women be shopping! Calm down, ladies…it’s funny because it’s not true. Well, the TV show part is. And possibly the pie part.

Catchphrases, Saturday Night Live — An entertainment columnist from a New England newspaper recently pinpointed that the current era of SNL relies heavily on repetition and catchphrases. SNL spokespeople simply responded “cheeseburger cheeseburger cheeseburger cheeseburger cheeseburger cheeseburger cheeseburger cheeseburger.”

Fallon, Late Night with Jimmy — …but speaking of recurring Saturday Night Live comedy, do you remember the terrible Christmas song performed every season by Horatio Sanz, Jimmy Fallon, Tracy Morgan and Chris Kattan in the early 2000’s? Yeah. Julian Casablancas of the Strokes covered that song last night on Late Night. That’s pretty great.

Kardashian, Khloe — On this past Sunday’s new episode of the riveting Keeping Up with the Kardashians, he Odom-espoused Khloe was confronted by her family and asked to seek help about her alleged anger problem after she acted with hostility toward sis Kourtney’s baby-daddy. Other things which anger Kardashian include  a recurringly growling stomach and a regret that the children in her neighborhood are very fast runners and, seemingly, “on to her.”

Marmaduke — Your Christmas prayers have been answered. Owen Wilson is voicing cartoon great dane Marmaduke in a live-action film based on the cartoon strip. Man, I hope they are faithful to that one cartoon where Marmaduke put an old shoe in the mom’s pot while she was making something for dinner, and the mom was all like “I hate it when Marmaduke tries to help me make dinner.” Shit was hilarious. Your move, Hi & Lois.

Simpson, Jessica — A recent twitter video released by Simpson shows the singer/actress being “candled.” Don’t get too excited, guys, it’s simply the act of using a candle to extract ear wax. The mound of extracted wax has already been signed to both Dukes of Hazzard 2 and Employee of the Month 2.

Spears, Britney — AskJeeves has announced that the singer is, according to its site at least, the most searched for person of the decade. This  is surprising because around 2006, it’s widely believed that most people stopped caring if they ever found her again.
