A commenter Instapundit brainstorms a new TV show to be called "Dux And The City" after reading about my practice of watching an episode of "Duck Dynasty" after an episode of "Girls" as a counterbalance. The commenter's combination of the 2 shows into one makes the new show a "fish out of water" story, like those old 60s favorites, "Beverly Hillbillies" and "Green Acres." Since he's bringing the country person to the city, it's the "Beverly Hillbillies." Put a "Girls" girl out in the swamp for the "Green Acres" counterpart.
Sidenote on TV: Are you watching "American Idol"? Consider that "Family friendly judges may breathe life back into 'American Idol.'" Family friendly and pulchritudinous. Especially, for me, Harry Connick, Jr.
How great is he?
1) He has, quite possibly, the bluest eyes on earth. ...This is important because: 1. He's beautiful (and it's harder to find a man as beautiful as he is than a woman as beautiful as Lopez), and 2. He's married and he's modeling good married-man behavior (which makes him even sexier to me). (But I don't think it was right to say "I will slap you"!)
2) He is remarkably astute and actually knows what he's talking about...
3) He is irreverent and hilarious. Unlike Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler, who spent an entire season mooning over how beautiful Jennifer Lopez was, Harry Connick Jr. frequently disagrees with her and uttered the best eight words spoken in thirteen years of Idol: "Jennifer, I will slap you on national television."
4) He effortlessly cradles contestants and Keith Urban in his arms, as if they were mere babes.He makes Keith more beautiful! Last year Keith was overshadowed, but Harry brings out what's best about Keith (who's also a wholesomely married man).
5) He isn't afraid to be honest. While Harry isn't needlessly cruel toward contestants, he doesn't coddle them either.Here are a bunch of clips from Wednesday's snow.
