Brilliant!!! Wm, you and Gervais rock! What was that that 'twizzler' snack thing that the french-fry guy offered? It looked like a deep-fried hotdog.

Taylor Hicks says about exercising on the road... "I just take off running, with a hat on," he says. And when covering up his distinctive gray mop, "I've walked through a thousand fans and nobody notices."

Yeah, Taylor? It aint the hat that makes no one notice you. Sorry buddy.

Also on TV - Did anyone see Letterman last night? Paula Abdul blaming her drunkeness in that infamous Seattle TV clip on "ALIEN ABDUCTION"? Why can't she just admit she was shit-canned? Why the song and dance? She went so far to say that she's NEVER been drunk in her life. No one likes a liar, Paula.

That was Jamie Oliver. Fucking hilarious!

I thought shit canned meant fired and shit faced meant drunk. Have I been wrong all this time?

I soooo hope Sanjaya wins at all. One million out-sourced to India customer service telephone reps can't be wrong!

Dilby @ 1:

A year in Scotland allows me to impart to you that a turkey twizzler is indeed a bit of deep-fried meat, which has been artificially formed into a corkscrew shape.

Maybe the Stranger would like to make another foray into the culinary world?

never mind heather's wooden leg, just vote her off for her wooden dancing.

Howard Stern has joined forces with to keep Sanjaya in as long as possible. Can I count on the citizens of The Slog to help too? If nothing else, it makes a terrible TV experience somewhat bearable. Check out for a heads up on the phone # to call for Sanjaya. It should be up ~6 pm pacific time.

That PSA's really great.

Jamie Oliver's an English chef who's been campaigning for higher-quality school lunches - thus the bit about him with the turkey twizzlers and nuggets and all.

PS Megan, it looks like we've got two commenters in Scotland. I'm in Edinburgh.

The bit about Extras coming to an end is not all bad news. The CW up till now has been that the show was already finished after series 2 wrapped up, so this one-off finale is something of a bonus.

It's even funnier than that, Gabriel. Oliver had a project to feed good nutritious food -- not school-nutritionist gunk but fresh ingredients prepared under his supervision -- and the kids and parents went ballistic. There was a group of moms sneaking up and pushing Burger King burgers through the chain link fence at lunchtime; I think some of them got arrested.

There is no nation on earth as devoted to the pursuit of sloth, obesity and heart disease as the British. They make your run-of-the-mill Midwestern fatties look like Atkins zealots.

Update: AI was a two hour show, so the phone lines opened up @ 7 Pacific. Sanjaya's # is 866-436-5708.

I'm glad to see your appreciation of the Swayze/Gilbert casting. Definitely a match made in heaven. This show will be awesome.

This clip from the same Comic Relief special is pretty good too. Catherine Tate's not so funny, but it's worth watching to see Blair's bit.
