Facebook? Serious. No, That Doesn't Seem Quite Right.

  • The Monologue:
    • The Jets have begun to lose as Mark Sanchez throws interception after interception. Antonio Cromartie is upset because he's never seen something miss its target this often before.
    • The new inductees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will be Neil Diamond, Darlene Love, and Alice Cooper, or, as they used to be known, The Beach Boys.
    • Mark Zuckerberg was named Time's Person of the Year. Runners-up include DiCaprio's character in Inception and Woody the Cowboy.
  • Random Pop Culture:
    • The nearly non-stop hilarity of Monday's How I Met Your Mother only goes to illustrate how often that show misses lately.
    • Maybe the three Survivor contestants on the outs -- and how could they not have known this was the case -- should have forced a tie, since they have almost nothing to lose at this point. Prediction for Sunday: Holly wins easily. She's exactly the type of player that's won lately -- the kind that does nothing all game.
    • I've actually been reading much more than TV lately. Entertainment Weekly had The Hunger Games as its #13 thing in entertainment in 2010 and the book is not only good, but a lightning-quick read because it's for young adults. I've gone through the first and half of the second book in less than a week. It took me months to finally get through The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest (which, I have to admit, was actually really good).
  • Random Video:
    • The Beatles released Beatles '65 on this date and it included "I'm A Loser" and "I Feel Fine" but also this cover of a classic Chuck Berry song. The song was featured in a movie that was released in Australia twenty-two years ago this month, Young Einstein. Think about that... There are kids out there who can drink that have never heard of Young Einstein. I mean, if that doesn't make you feel old...
