A Michael Bublé Christmas - Tuesday December 6, 8PM ET/PT, CTV/NBC

I will definitely not be watching this, but as I see this round-up as a service to others as much as an exercise in planning my own weekly viewing, I include it for all the people who, inexplicably, love this guy. The Bubbler is joined by guests including Justin Bieber, Kellie Pickler, Tracy Morgan and Ed Helms. (Forgive us, but we have to throw it in there: this unholy alliance can be called ... Bublieber?)

Michael Buble, Ed Helms Christmas VideoWhat's better than a digital short featuring the very charming Michael Bublé? A digital short featuring Bublé and the musically inclined star of NBC's 'The Office,' Ed Helms!

Helms and Bublé teamed up to do three digital shorts for NBC's 'A Michael Bublé Christmas' (Tues., Dec. 6, 8PM ET), but you won't see this one during the actual show. Yep, it's a shocking online exclusive. In the short, Helms and Bublé play hosts of a live 1974 Christmas special that goes horribly wrong.

Why did we say shocking? Well, the sweater on Helms' character does a little more than festively twinkle. Check out the video below.

It's Jack Black vs. Michael Bublé, in a Battle for Best Singer of All Time (VIDEO)

It's Jack Black vs. Michael Bublé, in a Battle for Best Singer of All Time"You guys know each other?" Jay Leno said. Yeah, they've met before. And they've got a bit of a rivalry going on. And so, on the new 'Tonight Show' (11:35PM ET on NBC), the two legendary singers of our generation -- Grammy Award-winner Michael Bublé and, um, Jack Black -- squared off in a battle for supremacy.

The two vocalists recalled a previous "sing-off" encounter that they had on an Australian talk show. Next, inspired by Black's performance in 'School of Rock,' the pair tried to determine who was more "hardcore" -- singing-wise, that is. Because really, you're not hardcore ... unless you live hardcore.

So, who would be the winner? Well, to be honest, they were both a little off-key, as Bublé screeched awkwardly in an effort to imitate Jack's, um, soaring vocal abilities.

The New Biopics: Undistinguished Canadians

by Stephanie Earp, posted Mar 29th 2010 5:02PM

On Sunday night, I watched 'Keep Your Head Up Kid: The Don Cherry Story' on CBC because, as my beloved said, "We kind of have to, don't we?" I think he was thinking of my job as a Canadian TV columnist, our status as hockey fans or maybe he only meant there wasn't much else on.

But watch it we did (the first half anyway - the rest airs Monday March 29, 8 pm, CBC) and frankly, I thought it was pretty good, and I'm a little surprised about it.

CBC miniseries are not usually my cup of tea. The subjects are usually dead white guys who made Important Contributions to Our Country, which I always feel I'm supposed to know about already.

Don Cherry even agrees with me. "I feel like I should be dead," he said at a press conference for the series. "Don't they usually do these kinds of movies about dead people?"

Jon Hamm on 'Saturday Night Live': Clip Highlights (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Jan 31st 2010 11:20AM
Saturday Night Live, Jon Hamm, 2010A clean-shaven Jon Hamm hosted 'Saturday Night Live' this week, and the 'Mad Men' star brought the laughs during his second time hosting the show -- especially as a "crazy sexy" saxophonist named Sergio.

The 'SNL' crew also took the politicians to task with bits on Obama's State of the Union speech, Sen. Scott Brown's new gig, and Justice Sonia Sotomayor's visit to Weekend Update. All that, and some Michael Bublé tunes.

Watch the videos after the jump.

Review: Saturday Night Live - Jon Hamm/Michael Bublé

by Annie Wu, posted Jan 31st 2010 10:32AM
Hamm and Buble
(S35E13) The first time Jon Hamm hosted Saturday Night LIve, back in 2008, it was before I had seen his work on Mad Men and 30 Rock (the latter was due to the fact his guest appearances didn't exist at the time). I was super-excited that the seemingly perpetually serious Hamm actually turned out to be hilarious, and his performance led to one of the best episodes of the entire season. Taking all this into consideration, I was walking on dangerous ground as I prepared to watch Hamm's return to the SNL stage.

Were my expectations too high to be met? Did Hamm's pre-SNL beard somehow take funny away from him (I've heard beards can sometimes do that)? As it turned out, I had absolutely nothing to worry about. Hamm did yet another stellar job as host, bringing a level of charm and commitment that made just about every sketch work.

I don't get excited that often about new episodes of Saturday Night Live, but I'll be watching this Saturday. Jon Hamm is the host again, and if it's as good as his previous hosting gig it's going to be well worth watching. The musical guest is Michael Bublé.

Fred Armisen is married to Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss.

What to Watch: December 14

'Jennifer Hudson: I'll Be Home for Christmas' (8PM, ABC)
The 'American Idol' alum, and, of course, Oscar and Grammy winner, has had an emotional couple of years that have played out very publicly, but it apparently hasn't chipped away at her Christmas spirit. In her first holiday special, Hudson returns to her hometown, Chicago, to revisit the people, places and music that helped set her on the path to stardom, including her high school and the church where her mother, nephew and brother were eulogized after their 2008 murders. In a lighter touch, Hudson pairs with fellow Grammy winner Michael Buble to croon the holiday classics 'Let It Snow' and 'Baby It's Cold Outside.'

Did NBC's Christmas in Rockefeller Center seem a little surreal to you?

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 3rd 2009 12:41PM
Rockefeller Center treeSo we didn't have any major walkout or cutting of the electricity during the live broadcast of the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting on NBC last night. But we did have enough things to talk about the day after.

I could discuss the lip synching that a lot of the acts decided to do (I'm looking at you, Barry Manilow) and point out just how bad Rod Stewart is at doing either old standards or soul songs. But I really want to talk about Jane Krakowski. She hosted (along with Chuck's Zachary Levi) and it was a little...surreal.

This was a variety show that wasn't too different than a special TGS that the 30 Rock gang might put on, and it almost seemed like it was Jenna Maroney hosting. Krakowski basically plays a really exaggerated version of herself on 30 Rock, and I was waiting for her to say something clueless or potentially racist or have a cat jump on her face and scratch her.
