I guess I'll have to watch with a case of PBR, an ill-fitting t-shirt, and a sense of detached hipster irony

God help me, but I think I may actually watch "Dancing with the Stars" this season. The cast was announced and among them are Penn Jillette, Adam Corrola, and Steve Freakin' Guttenberg. Well, I'll likely just stick with it until Penn bows out, since he's who I'm most curious about bringing the pain.

In other TV news, the second season of HBO's most excellent "Flight of the Conchords" has been pushed back to 2009. Thank you, striking writers! I hope that extra few pennies are worth my severely decreased level of happiness this year.

At least we'll be getting a new Flight of the Conchords album this spring, even if it is only made up of retooled versions of songs that appeared in the first season of the show.

I would rather they delayed FOTC than put it out ontime, but poorly-written. They should take their time, especially since the Conchords were originally thinking they might not do a second series at all!

Oh, I hear what you are saying. I'm just wondering what HBO has lined up for the fall and why they couldn't fit it in there. The wait between seasons on that channel can be unbearable sometimes.

i'm sure those extra pennies brought a lot of people a lot of extra happiness.

But you're missing my point: this situation doesn't make ME happy.
