57TH ANNUAL PRIMETIME CIRCLE JERK


Random Thoughts Regarding Last Night's Emmy Award Telecast:

1. While I hate to give Ellen DeGeneres the bird (or two for that matter), I must state that her performance as host was about as exciting as her dildo with dead batteries.

2. Patricia Arquette's Emmy award shows that pigs can, indeed, fly -- or at least get on stage in front of millions looking like a potential mate for KERMIT THE FROG.

3. Tony Shalhoub's win for "Best Comedy Actor" proves that not everybody loves Raymand. This was yet another deserving win for MONK and all of us with obsessive-compulsive tendencies.

4. The most lame segments among many were the stupid "Emmy Idol" songs. Not that anyone in the entire universe cares, but Shatner got shafted.

5. Did you notice that there weren't any women comedy writers to be seen anywhere? What gives? Are Ivy League Jews the only people networks are willing to hire? No wonder most current sitcoms suck...

I too delighted in Tony Shalhoub's win for 2 reasons: 1)He is an excellent, classy actor and MONK is a wonderful, quirky, interesting program. He is today's anti-Columbo with some Sherlock Holmes thrown in for good measure! 2)He is a native of my town, Green Bay. In fact, I regularly visit a great old chocolate shop called Seroogy's where his sister had worked at one time. They even have an autographed picture of Tony hanging on the wall. Cool...
