Live with Kelly & Michael  In addition to Olympic skiing and figure skating last night, I watched Kelly and Michael  not once, but twice. The first time before my husband came home from work and then again with him. Not sure if you saw it or read about it, but Kelly and Michael shocked the hell out of Mandy Patinkin. I don't want to spoil it...just watch.  http://livekellyandmichael.dadt.com/
Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon
I feel like Jimmy's pulling out way too much from his bag of tricks too fast. Last night, en epic Brian Williams rap, a not-as-funny-as-the-one-with-Justin-Timberlake hashtag thing with Jonah Hill, Charades with Emma Thompson, Bradley Cooper and Tim McGraw and Fallonventions. A lot in an hour. All good of course but still a lot. Here's the Brian Williams rap http://www.nbc.com/the-tonight-show/segments/1401 and the Jonah Hill hashtag: http://www.nbc.com/the-tonight-show/segments/1406


Not sure if someone at FOX or American Idol read my blog yesterday, but they fixed the live camera commercial thing.  They turned the camera onto the judges instead of the stage. A lot more action to watch. Glad they figured it out during my Verizon More Everything spot. I loved it FOX people! Let's keep these up!

Score one for the broadcasters...yesterday in Utah, a federal judge granted a preliminary injunction that barred Aereo from operating in 6 states. This is a big deal guys. Aereo can't steal broadcast signals now in Utah, New Mexico, Colorado, Oklahoma, Wyoming and Montana. Keep in mind the Supreme Court gets the case on 4/22. I'll keep ya posted.  Thursday's Trivia Question: Who was Johnny Carson's sidekick?  WWTM-Kristy Like me on Facebook at Watching Way Too Much Follow me on Twitter at [email protected] http://watchingwaytoomuch.com [email protected]
