In the meantime, here’s wishing all of you a Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy, prosperous new year!

It’s my favorite TV show of all time, so Seinfeld had to be represented in TVScreener.com‘s It’s a Very TVScreener.com Christmas 25-Day Giveaway. And we’ve saved one of the best giveaways for last: Seinfeld Monopoly and a Festivus t-shirt!

The Seinfeld Monopoly is the best entry in Monopoly’s long line of pop culture versions, from the game board with all the persons, places and things from the Seinfeld universe to the cool pewter game tokens, which have also been Seinfeld-ized.

Among the stops on the game board: The subway, a limo, a taxi cab and a Central Park horse and carriage (led by the Beefarino-eating Rusty the horse, of course) fill in for the Monopoly railroads, while the high-rent Boardwalk and Park Place have been replaced by Jerry’s apartment and Monk’s diner.

And the tokens? Adorable. Each of the following Seinfeld goodies is represented in pewter: Jerry’s Puffy Shirt, Frank and Kramer’s Bro/Manzier, Kramer’s Fusilli Jerry, the infamous Marble Rye the Costanzas gifted to and stole back from Susan’s parents, Elaine’s ill-fated Urban Sombrero and Kramer’s Coffee Table Book (about coffee tables).

And, because we’re talking Seinfeld and it’s Christmastime, we’re also including a festive Festivus t-shirt, an ode to that special holiday created by Frank Costanza (and in the real world, created by the father of Seinfeld writer Daniel O’Keefe, who penned the episode “The Strike” that introduced the rest of the world to Festivus).

And now, to enter for a chance to win Seinfeld Monopoly and a Festivus t-shirt, remember:
– Leave a comment on this post, with your name, your favorite Seinfeld episode or catchphrase and an e-mail address where we can reach you
– Deadline to enter to win Seinfeld Monopoly and the Festivus t-shirt is December 18 at 8PM ET (according to recorded comment time)

Channel Surfing – June 18

All the tube news that’s fit to surf …

– The Seinfeld cast reunion on Curb Your Enthusiasm is shaping up to be bigger than it was originally rumored to be. Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and the newly-“reformed” (according to Larry David) Michael Richards will reportedly appear in half the episodes of the upcoming season of Curb, which is scheduled to premiere this fall.

– It’s a definite go: Tom Cruise and J.J. Abrams are teaming up again, to make Mission: Impossible IV for a 2011 release.

– In addition to tonight’s “The Last Supper” special episode (Bravo, 9PM ET) of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, the network is stretching the show’s first season to July 9 with three more episodes, including two reunion eps and a “lost footage” installment. The so-called season finale that aired Tuesday night drew 3.5 million viewers, the highest number ever for an episode of the Housewives franchise.

– Will you really make it to your destination if Homer Simpson is giving you directions? You can find out with a TomTom GPS and the company’s celebrity voice navigator feature, which now includes Homie as an option. Other TV celeb voices available from TomTom: Kim Cattrall, Mr. T, Burt Reynolds and Dennis Hopper.

T.R. Knight‘s definitely vamoosing from Grey’s Anatomy, which just makes the show even more tiresome as the off-camera dramas continue to overshadow the on-screen action.

Twin Peaks lives again, as an Internet series? It is if original series star, and current Desperate Housewives baddie Kyle McLachlan, has anything to say about it.

– And, Twitter tip, the always awesome John Lithgow will play a serial killer on the new season of Dexter, and he’s Tweeting about it at @John_Lithgow.

50 Things I Love About TV – 1-10

Since it’s the official launch day of TV Screener, and hopefully I’ll get to know what you love and don’t love about TV, it seems like the perfect time to share what I love most about the tube. So here’s the first 10 of 50 things I love … parts 2-5, i.e. numbers 11-50, will unspool throughout the rest of the week.

1. Jack Bauer
It may not be politically correct in this Gitmo-closing political climate to say so, but if loving Jack Bauer is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.

2. 24
The sole reason Monday is one of my favorite days of the week. Like its central hero, Jack Bauer, the show has taken a lot of knocks throughout its run for its portrayal of government agents using torture tactics to get info out of bad guys. It may be a fair point. But, as the show’s producers have suggested, if you’re going to hold 24 culpable for suggesting the use of torture is justified, you’ve also gotta give the show credit for the pre-Obama first black (TV) President of the United States, David Palmer (Dennis Haybert), R.I.P.

3. Seinfeld
It just keeps getting funnier, even after the 87th viewing. And if you don’t think it’s the single funniest show ever to grace primetime, you may just be a doodiehead.

4. Gossip Girl
Chuck Bass, my current pick for Best TV Bad Boy.

5. The Real World
Some seasons, obviously, are better than others, and by the time Real World 43 is set in Youngstown, Ohio, maybe I won’t watch. But for now, yep, still watching.

6. Neil Patrick Harris
The celeb whose career and ‘tude all former child stars should aspire to emulate. He’s consistently funny, is a self-professed huge TV fan himself, has handled all the hubbub about his personal life gracefully and has both poked fun and paid homage to his Doogie past. What’s not to love about NPH?

7. Chuck
It’s funny, it’s clever, it’s got heart and it’s got a deep bench of great characters and great actors and actresses playing them. The show’s also rife with pop culture references that make it clear it’s a labor of love for those making it, as well as a perfectly cast line-up of guest stars, with fanboy (and girl!) favorites like Scott Bakula, Bruce Boxleitner, Chevy Chase, Morgan Fairchild and the always awesome Gary Cole. Here’s hoping an announcement that the show will return for a third season comes soon.

8. TV on DVD
Any time you feel like there’s nothing current worth watching on TV, 1) You’re wrong … there’s always something good on somewhere, and 2) There’s always some good TV DVDs worth buying or dropping in your Netflix queue. Like 24, Seinfeld, The Wire, The Sopranos, Arrested Development, Chappelle’s Show, Freaks and Geeks, The Job, Mad Men, Lost, Dexter, The Office (U.S. and U.K. versions), Gilmore Girls, M*A*S*H, Star Trek, Maude, Reno 911!, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Saturday Night Live, Little House on the Prairie

9. TiVo/DVRs
Remember life before them? All that matters is, it sucked.

10. One Tree Hill
Doesn’t get enough love. And P.S. – the show actually employed that jumping-five-years-ahead device a whole season before Desperate Housewives did it. Plus, the show features the adorable, scene-stealing kid actor Jackson Brundage, one of the few TV child stars who doesn’t make you cringe when he hits the screen.

Channel Surfing – April 28

All the tube news that’s fit to surf …

– Last night’s Chuck season (NOT series!) finale rocked, but I am sooo happy I gave up on Heroes before this ridiculous season finale, though, like most of those who are still watching, prolly wouldn’t have understood what the frick was going on anyway.

– Next week’s Scrubs season finale may not be the series finale after all. Talks continue to bring back the show – likely with some new cast members – for a ninth season.

– Lisa Rinna doesn’t want to go back to Melrose Place. She’s got cougar aspirations instead.

Big Love‘s recently concluded third season was far and away the show’s best, but yes, Roman (Harry Dean Stanton) really is dead and staying that way.

– FX is already one of my favorite cable destination – Sons of Anarchy, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Damages … – and it’s only getting better: Timothy Olyphant is starring in an upcoming FX drama pilot based on Elmore Leonard‘s Fire in the Hole. Go and Deadwood star Olyphant will play a U.S. Marshal who returns to his Kentucky hometown.

– The Jonas Brothers are hosting the Teen Choice Awards in August. Ahhhh! Squeal!

– Wondering what Matthew Bomer, the almost-Superman and former Guiding Light star, will do now that his Bryce Larkin bit the dust on Chuck last night? He’s signed on to star in what promises to be another character-driven hit on USA.

J.J. Abrams says ‘Down with spoilers!’

Tribbles were TV’s first bisexuals?! Seems so.

– All of a sudden, American Idol watchers are jumping on the Kris Allen bandwagon. Why? Methinks they’re bored by the fact that Adam is so far and away the best performer – and the only one consistently worth tuning in for – on the show. As for Kris, he’s not terrible, but he’s kinda the equivalent of a mayonnaise-and-processed American cheese sandwich on two pieces of Wonder Bread. Though perhaps not as doughy.

Adam, BTW, has sparked his own dictionary.

Life-size wax figures of the Seinfeld cast … me want.

Talkin’ With … ‘Wilfred’ Star Jason Gann About Season 2
