Video for the first single off of Hellbilly Deluxe 2 - "Sick Bubblegum" [click here or watch below]

TV Shows (most info from http://tvlistings.zap2it.com/):

  • Tonight – nothing noteworthy… (The Grammy Awards are on CBS tonight, but I can tell you what will most likely happen: Hip Hop/Rap singers/groups will win even in categories that are not Hip Hop/Rap such as Country, Rock, etc. If a rock band actually wins in the Rock category, chances are they don't really rock. You can probably hear them in the elevator. But then again, I could be wrong. We can always hope that Kanye will interrupt someone's speech.)
  • Monday – FOX has a new episode of House @ 8pm [promo]. NBC has new episodes of Chuck @ 8pm [promo] and Heroes @ 9pm [promo]. Showtime has the season premiere of Secret Diary Of A Call Girl @ 10pm [promo]. (So, my bad. This week really is the premiere of regular episodes for the season. Last week was a special interview with the real-life Belle. Still doesn't explain why Comcast continued to describe the episode as a repeat of the season two finale.)

  • Tuesday – Are you ready????? For 3-hours of LOST???? ABC has a one-hour recap episode @ 8pm followed by the 2-hour season premiere starting @ 9pm.
  • Wednesday – At 8pm, NBC has a new episode of Mercy, and FOX has a new episode of Human Target. At 9pm, CBS has a new episode of Criminal Minds [promo].
  • Thursday – FOX has new episodes of Bones @ 8pm and Fringe @ 9pm [promo]. The CW has new episodes of The Vampire Diaries @ 8pm and Supernatural @ 9pm. NBC has new episodes of Community @ 8pm, Parks & Recreation @ 8:30pm, & The Office @ 9pm. CBS has a Survivor special @ 8pm called "Surviving Survivor."

  • Friday – Cartoon Network has new episodes of Batman: The Brave & The Bold @ 7:30pm and Star Wars: The Clone Wars @ 9pm. The CW has a new 2-hour episode of Smallville @ 8pm called "Absolute Justice," introducing the Justice Society of America [promo trailer].
