TV PSA

18 Dec

Folks, if you haven’t yet seen the Studio 60 holiday show from a couple weeks ago, here is your chance: NBC is repeating it this evening.

Do yourself a favor and tune in tonight at 10 p.m. to see one of the year’s classiest, best-written episodes of television.

Matthew Perry’s character is a Jew with more Christmas spirit than anyone around him (sounds familiar), and his castmates try to discredit the entire holiday.

That, and a demented Santa Claus, an inspired parody of Dateline‘s “To Catch a Predator” series, and a classic quasi-romantic/stalker-ish moment toward the end.

And if you can’t make it home in time by 10, and you haven’t pre-set the VCR or TiVo, then just turn on the show whenever you can because you won’t want to miss the last five minutes. They’ll make you weep, cheer, and feel jolly all at the same time, thanks to an awesome, truly memorable New Orleans-flavored performance of “Oh Holy Night” that you’ll be talking about all week long.

Watch this show tonight. You’ll thank me tomorrow.

    Why would I watch this when there’s belly button lint to pick?
