Stephen Colbert of The Colbert Report called on his legion of fans/cult-like followers who would not only follow their leader into the gates of Hell, but also take his place in the seventh circle (the one that only gets QVC, C-Span 2 and late night knife infomercials) to help him vanquish his foes. In the past, he has used his followers to take on enemy combatants such as Chuck Norris, indie rock group the Decemberists and Oshawa, Ontario mayor John Gray.
This time, he's taken down someone more feared, despised and loathed than all three of those figures combined in a tragic teleportation device accident.
It seems like every year at about this time, when everyone is making their big "tech" predictions for next year, someone always says that next year is going to be the year for TV on the internet. While it may not yet be a perfect system, or exactly as we all had expected it to be, whoever predicted that statement last December would be right on the money; 2005 will definitely go down as the year that TV came to the internet. The networks seemed to realize, throughout the year, that this internet thing wasn't going to go away anytime soon, and they ought to go ahead and embrace it. Tie-ins ranging from recaps and commentaries, to downloadable specials and entire episodes, to live tie-ins with game shows started popping up all over the web. And let me tell you, if you think that 2005 was big, wait 'til 2006 -- you ain't seen nothing yet. (Yes I know that's grammatically incorrect, it's from a song people!) On with the show!
Hail to the Chief! Geena Davis (that's Ms. President to you) is coming to an iPod near you. ABC added hit series Commander in Chief to the lineup of shows - including The Office, Desperate Housewives, and Lost, available through Apple's iTunes Music store for a buck-ninety-nine per ad-free episode. Of course, you could DVR or TIVO them for free if you have that capability at your house, and skip the ads that way, but hey - this way you can pop them on your iPod and watch them on the subway -- once that pesky transit strike is over.
