‘Weeds’: Let’s Enroll at the University of Andy

This’ll get you even more excited about the June 8 fifth season premiere of Weeds: a commercial for “The University of Andy,” the school of thought by Weeds scene stealer Andy Botwin (Justin Kirk), where you can study such disciplines as Pleasing the Opposite Sex, Holding Your Liquor, Surviving Animal Attacks, Crazy Girls, Archery, Foreign Chicks, Daytime Television, Electrical Engineering, and, of course, TV/VCR Repair.

The Weeds cast is a stellar one, with Mary-Lousie Parker, Elizabeth Perkins and Kevin Nealon all Emmy-worthy, but I think the fact that Kirk hasn’t even received a nomination for his role as Andy is right up there with the inexplicable snubbing by the Emmy folk of Scrubs star John C. McGinley. It’s just kookie!

Check out the University of Andy clip, and I’ll see you in the checkout line when I’m snagging a U of A pennant.

‘Mad Men’ Season 3 … Coming in August

And here’s the promo, complete with plenty of footage of The Draper (Jon Hamm), to prove it (in case you missed it during last night’s Breaking Bad season finale):

Eminem: Was He in on the Joke?

… or was he really surprised, and ticked off, when he got butt-faced (and junk-faced?) by Bruno (Sacha Baron Cohen) at last night’s MTV Movie Awards?

The rapper looked surprised, and angry, and Ryan Seacrest Tweeted last night that he had been told Eminem was definitely not privvy to the bit and immediately hightailed it out of the show with his bodyguards.

But check out the clip of the incident below. Sure, Slim Shady looks ticked off, but his bodyguards didn’t immediately react. Bruno actualy landed, butt-first, in Eminem’s face, but the bodyguards just sat there until Eminem, rather colorfully, requested that he be removed … so either he was in on the joke, or he might need to rethink his security detail and their reaction times.

Either way, funny stuff.

Or did you find the whole bit crude (and, given Eminem’s beef with Triumph the Insult Comic Dog at the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards, and Howard Stern‘s butt-baring entrance as Fartman at the ’92 VMAs, totally unoriginal)?

‘Man’ vs. Wild Will Ferrell

He may be a comedy A-lister, but on Tuesday’s episode of Discovery Channel’s Man vs. Wild (10PM ET), Land of the Lost star Will Ferrell feasts on a dinner of reindeer eyeballs and his own urine.

Host Bear Grylls and Ferrell parachute off a helicopter and into the Swedish hinterland, where they’ll rappel down a hundred-foot frozen waterfall, get crafty by fashioning their own snow shoes out of twigs and, yes, drink their own urine.

CBS may want to keep Ferrell in mind if they ever get that all-star version of Survivor off the ground …
