1.) Harry Potter Weekend on ABC Family's 25 Days of Christmas: That's right. It's basically ten hours a day of Potterphilia all weekend long. I even found myself watching the not-so-good first movie when the stars were just little babies. Oddly, Emma Watson's (Hermione) horrible acting doesn't bother me as much in the first movie as it does in the fourth one. (The eyebrows! Egads!)
2.) The holiday MasterCard commercials with Peyton Manning and Alyson Hannigan: Whoever's idea it was to put the adorable formerly-red-headed 'Buffy' and 'How I Met Your Mother' alumna in a commercial with my favorite NFL quarterback slash hilarious spokesperson (seriously, Peyton has like four commercials on TV right now. So take you stupid take-yourself-too-seriously watch commercials and shove 'em, Eli) is clearly a genius. Also genius? Making Peyton utter the words "sausage-shaped necktie" with a straight face.
3.) Star-crossed lovers House and Wilson: In this week's episode of 'House,' the adorable couple that was doing the heart-string tugging wasn't House and Cuddy or Chase and Cameron, it was House and Wilson. House finally set aside his pride and admitted that without his tolerant floppy-haired boyfriend he would be totally alone. Everyone together now: "Awwwww."
4.) The awesome Spanish 'Lost' promo: (Attention Sara: DO NOT CLICK! You will hate me forever if you watch this promo for season 6 before you finish season 3.) So while America was busy being completely unsatisfied by ABC's lame promo for 'Lost' season 6 (the creators refuse to release any new footage, so it's a challenge), the Spanish network Cuatro was being awesomely creative and making this appropriately epic (and superior) promo.
5.) This amazingly adorable video.
6.) SNL finally mocks that guy from the UPS commercials. You've probably seen those stupid UPS commercials with the guy whose hair kind of looks like 90s Rosie O'Donnell. You know, he draws on a dry erase board and thinks he's really clever and stuff. Anyway, in a long overdue mocking, Bill Hader plays him in this chucklesome (please note that spellcheck did not flag that word) SNL skit.
7.) 'Cougar Town' on ABC. Okay, I know the premise (and the title) of this show is a little bit ridiculous, and I fully expected it to be horrible, but after catching a few episodes (it's on right after 'Modern Family' and sometimes I'm too lazy to change the channel. Don't judge me) I'm afraid to say I'm actually loving it. Courteney Cox's comedy chops are as sharp as when she was on 'Friends,' and Busy Philipps plays the ditzy party girl hilariously. The best part has to be the character of Barb, a 48-year-old cougar who randomly turns up to make extremely inappropriate comments and hit on young men. She's basically Jane Seymour in 'Wedding Crashers' with a recurring sub-supporting role. It's hysterical. I dare you to watch it.
