'The Voice' Coaches Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, Cee-Lo Green and Blake Shelton Get 'Crazy' (VIDEO)

'The Voice' PreviewNBC is pulling out all the stops to make sure we're ready for the series premiere of 'The Voice' on Tuesday, April 26, 2011 at 9 PM ET. They've blanketed the airwaves with ads, and then they decided to take it a step further with a full-blown preview of 'The Voice' (Thu., 11:35PM on NBC) premiere last night.

With 'American Idol' getting a lot of criticism of late for some of its recent results, and people saying it's more of a popularity contest than a true singing competition, there couldn't be a better time to launch an alternative take on the genre.

And to prove they've got the right superstars leading the charge as Coaches on 'The Voice,' the preview kicked off with the four of them proving their own mettle. Adam Levine, Blake Shelton, Cee-Lo Green and Christina Aguilera performed a fantastic version of Gnarls Barkley's 'Crazy.'

Cat Deeley's crazy outfits

Cat Deeley in her tuxReasons why I tune in to So You Think You Can Dance on both Wednesday and Thursday nights...

1. The dancing. I want to see who got what style and if he / she can pull it off.

2. The judges. Sans Mary's screams and stupid fake-outs, I find the judges rather informative in their critique. Unlike some other shows... *cough* Idol.

3. Cat Deeley and her outfits. Cat is a refreshing host: truly concerned for the SYTYCD hopefuls, genuinely excited for the guest performers, and always ready to engage with the judges.

A glimpse of the new Aqua Teen video game - VIDEO

aqua teenSave for Super Mario Kart on the N64, I haven't had much interest in video games since my old Nintendo Entertainment System. My brain and motor functions can't deal with the first person point of view and controllers with six hundred buttons. Give me a nice simple left to right scroller and I'm a happy man.

How I learned to stop worrying and love David Koechner - VIDEO

by Adam Finley, posted Feb 23rd 2007 5:20PM

David KoechnerDear David Koechner,

They say the only thing more romantic than love at first sight is love at third or fourth sight -- at least I think they say that, but whatever, it's true. What I'm trying to say, David Koechner, is that I've grown to admire you over the years. It's not a romantic or a sexual love, more like the love a man has for a tall frosty mug of beer, or the tasty flesh of a small calf cooked over the flaming remains of its own mother. It's a manly love I feel for you, D.K.

I'll admit I didn't quite understand you at first. When you were on Saturday Night Live I thought you were just another comedian who considered nonsensical ranting and facial contortions a viable substitute for comedy. I was wrong, David Koechner, and I should have realized that by your participation in those "Bill Brasky" sketches, which are among some of my favorite SNL sketches of all time (video clip after the jump).

Just how popular is Grey's Anatomy anyway?

by Jay Black, posted Feb 18th 2007 10:22AM
Yeah, most doctors are this attractive. No really, they are.There's a serious problem at this nation's colleges. Something more serious than liberal professors, binge drinking, and crystal-meth combined. Yes, I'm talking about Dempsey-Mania.

For the second time in the last week, I've had a comedy performance at a college scheduled so that it didn't conflict with the Thursday night airing of Grey's Anatomy. Now, I realize that I'm slightly less yummy than Dr. McDreamy (ahem), but come on -- a live performance (of anything, not just me) surely has to out-rank a TV show, right?

More disturbing to me is the fact that at none of the colleges I'm performing at this year (I'm scheduled to be at around 100) are doing this for any other show. Shows that I thought would be perfect college "event" shows (like The Office or Lost) are ignored, while Grey's Anatomy is tip-toed around. I don't watch the show, so I thought I'd put it to the commentators: what is it about this show in particular that drives college kids so crazy?

I Pity the Fool: Respect

by Kevin Kelly, posted Nov 9th 2006 7:31PM
I Pity the Fool(S01E05) I Pity the Fool who don't respek his momma! That's the Reader's Digest version for this episode. It's all formula, suckas. The producers probably a have a big laminated T cheat sheet that they carry around to use on location. It seems like there has to be one situation that T just totally doesn't expect, and another one where there's a bit of drama involving someone besides T, hopefully with an injury. Oh, and liberal amounts of strange logic and T-isms.

Andy Milonakis returns in 2007

by Adam Finley, posted Oct 2nd 2006 2:11PM
andy milonakisOkay, MTV2, you've decided to bring back The Andy Milonakis Show for a third season. That just leaves me with one question: are you also going to bring back Wonder Showzen? Because if you don't bring back Wonder Showzen, I will have no choice but to -- well, I guess I can't really do anything, but I'll be really, really sad and I may misdirect my anger and frustration and beat a squirrel with a tennis racket. Do you really want that on your conscience? Sorry, I'm getting off the subject, aren't I? Anyway, The Andy Milonakis Show is in fact returning with six new episodes in 2007. Fans should rejoice, and non-fans should, I don't know, go make themselves a sandwich or something. I'm kind of a non-committal, intermittent fan of the show. Out of all the shows on television, this is probably the one I'm the most wishy-washy about.

Reno 911!: The Junior Bros.

by Adam Finley, posted Jul 16th 2006 11:30PM

reno 911(S04E02) Paul Rudd is a funny guy, and he should really do more comedy. He appeared in this episode, albeit briefly, as an instructor in Trudi's Lamaze class who informs the women, "your vagina will be ripped in half." That's about all we hear about Trudi and her pregnancy in this episode, though she does have a funny conversation with Williams where Williams explains to her that a baby must be fed everyday and cannot, as Trudi assumes, just have food laid out for it like a cat. Trudi counters with, "If I knew you were going to judge me on my parenting skills I never would have introduced you to my unborn child."

Rewinding to the beginning of the episode, the deputies discuss new policies on when they can and cannot shoot at a person. One of the new rules is that they can only shoot after they've already been shot once. Trudi inexplicably asks if she can shoot people and chickens who come into her yard.

David Cross is a piece of crap

by Adam Finley, posted May 6th 2006 4:25PM
david crossNo, seriously, he's playing an actual piece of crap in this hilarious short film featuring himself and director Michael Gondry. In this short, titled "One Day," Gondry tries to leave David the giant poo in a public toilet, but the giant poo wants nothing to do with that. Instead, he chases Gondry down and accuses him of trying to commit murder via toilet flush. Defeated, Gondry lets the poo follow him around, which leads to a hilarious scene in a restaurant where David wipes food on other patrons and asks a fat man where it is he buys his candy, cause Gondry would really like some. The whole thing ends with a rather odd non sequitur, but I'll let you check it out for yourselves.

King of the Hill: 24 Hour Propane People

by Adam Finley, posted Apr 24th 2006 10:14AM

king of the hill(S10E12) Being a heterosexual male with the ability to use my eyes, I can certainly understand the desire to kick back at the occasional strip club now and again, but I've never understood men who go to these places all the time. They're fun once in a while, but I would think frequenting them every day would cause the novelty to wear off pretty quickly. That doesn't seem to be the case for Mr. Strickland, who has spent every morning of his life kicking back at his favorite strip joint and enjoying the free buffet. In the beginning of last night's episode, after fuming over the lack of free food, he's banned from the strip club indefinitely.

The episode could have easily been turned into one about a dirty old man upset about not being able to ogle chicks before work every morning, but it was really more about Strickland's endless struggle to remain young and vibrant, at least in his own mind. He has no desire to be the real "boss" of Strickland Propane, he delegates that responsibility to Hank. What he does want is to be the crazy guy who swipes money from the cash register to use at the strip club each morning. Since he can't even do that anymore, he decides to make Strickland Propane more "fun," turning it into "Strickland Propanerie" and having his workers dress in Hawaiian shirts and bunny ears. Unfortunately, this means no work ever gets done and they end up having to work overtime. Hank eventually smooths things over with the owner of the strip club, and Mr. Strickland is allowed back, as long as both parties understand the other one isn't apologizing.

Dave Chappelle confused me

by Anna Johns, posted Feb 4th 2006 8:05AM
chappelle oprahI watched Dave Chappelle on Oprah yesterday and, despite denying rumors that he's crazy, I think he may have some sort of mental imbalance. Oprah opened up the show by asking him why he suddenly left for Africa after signing a $50 million, 2-year deal with Comedy Central. I don't think he ever gave a straight answer. He did say something about "they" were trying to manipulate him through the press, and that there was a lot of pressure, and he had ethical issues with some sketches on the show. But, it took me an hour to glean that from his rambling, disjointed answers to Oprah's questions. Oprah was clearly confused. She kept trying to get clarification from him on why he disappeared. At 19 minutes into the show, she was still asking.

Later, when she asked him whether he would return to his show on Comedy Central, he said he had been thinking about that question all during the interview and appeared to just make up an answer on the spot. He said something about creating a comfortable work environment and donating DVD proceeds to charity. Huh?
