Jon Stewart Unveils First Person Sprayer Xbox 360 Game 'Black Friday' (VIDEO)

'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Inspired by the woman who pepper-sprayed her way to an Xbox 360 system at a Wal-Mart, Jon Stewart came up with a whole new genre of video game on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central). The fact that the woman was allowed to buy the system and take it home, essentially rewarding her for this behavior, made him realize that pepper spray may be the weapon of choice in the future.

So he presented the new Xbox 360 first person sprayer, 'Black Friday.' In this game, you navigate the corridors of a store, armed with your trusty can of pepper spray. As you near your desired purchases, let loose to keep other shoppers from getting their hands on your prize. It's a game the whole family can play -- and at least one person in real life.

The Middle Thanksgiving was an instant classic

by Allison Waldman, posted Nov 26th 2009 4:00PM
the_middle_couchThere was something refreshingly pedestrian about last night's episode of The Middle. It wasn't about abundance and excess, because as a middle-class situation comedy, the current economic state doesn't reflect having plenty and living beyond your means. Frankie and Mike are doing their best to get by. But they're not bitching about it. That's part of the reason why I'm enjoying this show so much. Like me, Jason also liked this episode quite a bit.

Frankie had to work on Thanksgiving, that's true, and she did protest about that, but not the fact that the family has to plot out their Black Friday shopping at the mall to get every bargain imaginable. They don't complain about being strapped. They accept that they have to cut coupons and be thrifty.

Like the remnant carpet for the bedroom as an anniversary gift, The Hecks are accepting of their middle class.

Maria Bamford plays a demented shopper in new Target ads

The new Target holiday ads are out, and if you've been scratching your head, trying to figure out who that vaguely familiar-looking woman is who's playing that competitive and slightly demented Black Friday shopper, scratch no longer.

It's Maria Bamford, the cute but decidedly off-kilter stand-up comedian who is probably best known for participating in the Comedians of Comedy tour with Patton Oswalt, Zach Galifianakis, and Brian Posehn.

Most of the ads show Bamford playing the competitive shopper, pulling full Target carts uphill and sleeplessly decorating a gingerbread village in preparation for the store's big Black Friday sale. But in some of the spots, Bamford also plays the woman's more "normal" sister, who doesn't need to be there as soon as the doors open. Problem is, she also puts her wreath up using a staple gun. So how normal can she be? One of the ads is below, and a couple of more are after the jump:

Chuck: Chuck Versus the Gravitron

Chuck vs the Gravitron(S02E08) "You already broke my heart, is it necessary to shoot it as well?" - Chuck to Jill

It must be a Thanksgiving thing because Monday night TV was tremendous. And as I mentioned in my post of thanks, I'm grateful to my DVR because in addition to enjoying this Chuck episode, I also gorged myself on How I Met Your Mother, Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men and Samantha Who, all of them excellent installments. How lucky can you get?

Well, if you're Chuck, you only get so much luck. Of all the girls in all the world, why did his first love, the lovely Jill, have to turn out to be a spy? Make that a bad girl spy.
