NBC Gets The Gas Face

  • The Monologue:
    • You may have heard about the cops who were caught on video playing Wii Sports bowling at a drug dealer's house. We've come a long way from Rodney King, huh?
    • Wide receiver Plaxico Burress spent his first day in jail today. Our correspondent on the scene, Butthead, says, "Wide receiver. Huh huh huh."
    • With Obama seemingly trying to drive him out, New York governor David Paterson may not run. Some may say that he can't see his next move clearly.
  • Random Pop Culture:
    • Notice how I didn't say anything about Heroes yesterday? Didn't DVR it. I'll catch it at some point either online or on that cable network with the stupid f***ing name. Not so excited for it. The ratings for it were apparently pretty weak, so I guess I'm not the only feeling this way. Ditto for Leno, which crashed once there was actual TV up against it.
    • Began Alice Sebold's The Lovely Bones, in advance of Peter Jackson's adaptation. The first chapter deals with the rape and murder of a young girl, told from her perspective. Pleasant start.
  • Random Music Video:
    • It's time look around the world and see what's going on and we're going to get some help from special guest stars Flava Flav, Play, DOOM, and some other folks. They're here to tell you about Honduras, where the police used tear gas on protestors supporting the country's ousted leader. What reaction did the protestors have? Well, check it out:
