I freakin' forgot to watch Love Monkey last night

Love MonkeyI was bummed when the show was canceled so quickly by CBS, and really happy when the show was picked up VH-1 (well, the episodes already in the can), so why did I forget to watch it last night? I have to remember, it's on VH-1, Tuesdays at 9. VH-1, Tuesdays at 9. VH-1, Tuesdays at 9!

Luckily, the networks repeat everything a lot now, and this episode (titled "The Window") will be repeated this Thursday at 11am. I'm going to set my DVR just in case. The Price Is Right is on at the same time.

Don't you hate it when you're looking forward to seeing something, but you get busy and it slips your mind and you miss it?

Do the Grammys still matter?

Grammy Awards - CBSOf course, for many of us, the question could be "did the Grammys ever matter at all?" But they're asking the question on CNN, and I have to admit that if I didn't write for a TV site I probably wouldn't even had known that the show was tonight (8pm on CBS).

Is this show important to anyone outside of the music industry? And why would it even be important to anyone in the music industry, since I don't think that a Grammy nomination or a win results in more sales to the average consumer. I mean, I don't think music fan buys a CD because the artist wins an award, they buy it because they like the artist anyway, or it was recommended by a friend, etc. In fact, the argument could be made that since the artist/album got a Grammy nomination, it already had great sales, or it wouldn't have been nominated (yeah, yeah, yeah, I know, it's quality, not quanity - but that's in a perfect world. In the real world, sales means accolades).

So tell us: do you watch the Grammys? And if so, why? And do awards go out and make you buy the album?

Love Monkey: Confidence

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 8th 2006 7:41AM

Love Monkey"There's a thin line between confidence and arrogance."

That's the quote from Tom Farrell that summarizes this episode, as Tom and True Vinyl hire a critically-acclaimied indie director to direct Wayne's first music video. Are they doing the right thing? Do they have the money for all the effects/equipment/extras he needs to film the video? Will he do something to eventually tick everyone off?
