Vince Vaughn on ‘SNL’: Audience Participation, Weather and ‘Last Call’
369 days ago

Vince was impressive last night, and even though it has been 15 years he showed that he is as smooth as ever in that hilarious monologue. His comedic timing was really good, and that Last Call sketch showed that he was down for whatever they threw at him. I nearly missed the show because I am traveling for my job at DISH and this hotel in Texas gets the west coast feed of NBC. Thankfully I was able to stream the show to my tablet from my receiver at home with DISH Anywhere, so I didn’t miss any of those great bits.

Melissa McCarthy on ‘SNL’: Abusive Coaches, High Heels and Pizza
376 days ago

I don’t know why but I just could not stop myself from laughing during the Pizza Business sketch. It was just so random and well executed by McCarthy and Sudeikis that even though the concept was weak it was still hilarious. I nearly missed the show because I worked the late shift at DISH last night, but thankfully I got off right in time to watch it on the way home. Being able to stream live TV from my receiver at home to my iPad with DISH Anywhere is so nice because it really lets me take advantage of all my free time on those long train rides home.

Kendra Wilkinson Quits ‘Splash’: ‘It’s Bittersweet’

All of the drama on this show centers around the height of the diving platform, so I don’t get why people are hating on her for succumbing to her fear of heights. An elimination like this was bound to happen, and it is essentially the appeal of Splash. I missed the first part of the show because I got held up leaving the office at DISH last night, but thankfully I was able to watch it on the way home. I love how I can stream live TV to my iPad from my receiver at home because it really makes those long train rides home so much better.

Jamie Foxx Hosts 'SNL': Standup, Singing and 'Special Ops'

Ne-Yo killed it on the show last night, and it was also great seeing 2 Chainz show up for the monologue. Foxx was great, especially in that Alex Cross 2 sketch. His Madea impression had me in tears, and it reminded me of his days on In Living Color. Jay Pharoah was also in the show quite a bit last night, and he is really starting to become one of my favorite people on the show. I am really surprised at how good these new cast members are, and I have even saved every episode from this season on my DISH Hopper’s 2 TB hard drive. I am constantly showing people sketches, like the other day me and a coworker from DISH watched the Lesser Known Bond Girls sketch. I am excited to see where all of these great young comedians can take the show!

'DWTS' Recap: Carrie Ann Inaba Goes Down, Kirstie Alley 'Hits a Wall'
542 days ago

I am worried for Kirstie because she has been at the bottom of the pack for a couple of weeks, and the other competition is seriously tough. I think that she did a good job of improving on her technique this week, and if she can incorporate some of the great entertainment value of her other dances into next week’s performance she might have a chance. I missed the show because I was working late at DISH last night, but thankfully my Hopper recorded it for Primetime Anytime. Having it record everything on the four major networks without having to set any timers is such a lifesaver. I am so glad that I got to see Carry Ann fall out of her chair like that because it was hilarious, and who could blame her after seeing Gilles and Peta perform that dance live.

'DWTS' Recap: Shawn Johnson Flips, Bristol Palin Flops
556 days ago

Last night we were treated to such good performances that I would have thought it was the final if I didn’t know. Shawn and Derek might have broken some rule, but I can guarantee that none of the voters care about that. I was talking to a coworker at DISH about the show, and she thinks that Bristol’s fight with Mark was yet another attempt to rally her fan base. I really hope that she finally gets eliminated this time after having the lowest score for the first 3 weeks. I missed the first part of the show because I was watching Bones with my boys, but thankfully my Hopper recorded it for Primetime Anytime. I love that I can keep up with my favorite shows as well as my sons’ without worrying about setting timers. I am so glad that I was able to see it all because I think it was the best episode that DWTS has ever had!
