PROPPED: Rejected Jokes from SNL


It’s better to have tried and failed and posted your failure on your blog then never to have tried at all. That’s what Ben Schwartz, a freelance writer for shows like SNL and Dave Letterman , thinks. This dude has been capitalizing on his failures for over a year now, by posting his rejected jokes on his website This month, Schwartz dropped off a whole new line-up of bombs. If you’ve always wanted to know what it doesn’t take to get on SNL, check out this video Schwartz performing his rejected jokes live.

UPDATE: The World DID End Yesterday


At least it did for Van Halen fans. And rock & roll.

Diamond David Lee Roth dropped by The Tonight Show to promote his new album, Strummin With The Devil: The Southern Side of Van Halen last night (6/6/06). And that’s… where… this happened:

It’s June 7th; What’s up?


tv set1.jpgTonight comedy fans will be divided: are you going to watch Dog Bites Man on Comedy Central, or a new episode of Blue Collar TV on the WB? Granted, they’re not on at the same time, but come on- you can’t watch both. That’s like rooting for the Yankees AND the Red Sox, or the Real World AND Road Rules during their stupid challenges. Sometimes you just have to choose.

What else is on tonight? Well, Dateline nabs a few more sexual predators, Commander in Chief is *still* going, and a bunch of people who think they can dance dance on So You Think You Can Dance? What are YOU watching? Vote now!

Best Night Ever: Tuesday, June 6th


It’s Best Night Ever for Tuesday, June 6th! Shea Hess is here to walk you through the best of Tuesday night tv, including Last Comic Standing, Janice Dickinson’s Modeling Agency, and Queer Eye For The Straight Guy!

…Of The Day



  • COLLABORATION: Cody ChesnuTT & Michel Gondry, on this ridiculous “King of The Game” clip. (Screenhead)
  • GREAT IDEA: Katherine Heigl considered starring in a sex tape to boost her career. It’s not too late– I bet it’ll still help! (IDLYITW)
  • SEX CHART: Who did/ didn’t Janice Dickinson screw? Sorry Bill Cosby. (Cityrag)
  • PROOF THAT THE END IS NEAR: Saget!!! SAGET!!!! (Gawker)
  • DEPRESSING SNAPPLE FUN FACTS: I can’t believe I’ve never opened a Snapple and read “Your parents are disappointed in the person you’ve turned out to be.” (CollegeHumor)

LISTEN UP: BWE’s Daily Dose of the Best Music Ever

  • I still haven’t given up hope that today (6.6.06) the world will end. We still have time. Before it does, make sure you head over to Awesome Until Proven Guilty and listen to a bunch of Devil songs by Beck, The Smiths, INXS and more. Go… before it’s too late.
  • Armagideon Times has been gearing up for the end of the world too, with a track by Slayer and “Hell” by Squirrel Nut Zippers. Blogging about Squirrel Nut Zippers is another sign of the apocalypse, I think.
  • Moving on. Homo Eclectic has a handful of tracks off Nelly Furtado’s new album. I liked her more when she was Like A Bird than Promiscuous.
  • The theme of the day is “acronyms” over at Badminton Stamps, with tracks by Giant Drag, Elastica, and (my ringtone) “C.R.E.A.M” by the Wu-Tang Clan.
  • And finally, The Late Greats has a few party tunes for Tuesday. I recommend Ben Folds Five’s cover of “She Don’t Use Jelly.” I also recommend partying on Tuesday, but that’s a whole other story.

UPGRADE/DOWNGRADE: Summer Replacement Shows


entourage grenier.jpgYears ago the summer was a barren wasteland. A time where there was absolutely nothing good on TV, so you were forced to go outside and play in the sun and be social. It was awful.

Nowadays, the networks pump out original programming all year long; with a bunch of shows getting relegated to “summer replacement” duty. Some of these summer shows are so good you don’t even miss the stuff that it’s taking the place of– UPGRADE! Other times, they’re so bad they motivate you to actually go outside– DOWNGRADE!

The Apprentice: Safe Happens


The Apprentice is known for its unabashed use of product placement. Whether it’s Burger King, Crest toothpaste or Trump Ice, the reality show never hesitates to do whatever it takes to make an extra buck. Last night when Sean won was no exception. Take a look.
