39 Days, 18 Contestants, 15 Contestants Who Understand The Game

  • The Monologue:
    • The National Enquirer reported that O.J. Simpson was beat up in prison. It hit Twitter and major blogs wrote about it. Problem: it didn't actually happen. The other prisoners were 100% not guilty.
    • The theme song to Civilization IV won a Grammy award. Everyone thought the speech was two minutes long, but it turns out that they had been listening to it for four hours.
    • This just sounds like a horrible, horrible idea. Horrible.
  • Random Pop Culture:
    • Survivor returned tonight with the premiere of its twenty-second installment. It started out promising and ended up being one of the more frustrating episodes I can remember. I lamented the way that the ubiquitous hidden immunity idol has changed the game for the worse, but it turned out that it led to one of the dumber set of moves in the history of the game. There's a reason you don't make power moves in the first few days.
    • Man, Lights Out is just really, really good. I guess FX and AMC are just willing to take more chances, but the quality of shows on those networks is far, far above the quality on the broadcast networks.
    • Albert Pujols is not signing with anyone but St. Louis. Please, let's stop the madness. It's not going to happen.
  • Random Video:
    • Birthday for James Ingram, who sang this duet with Linda Ronstadt.
