{TB Talks TV} Best of Last Week in TV (8.3.14)


Well, Comic Con is over until next year, but that doesn’t mean nothing else is happening in the weird and wonderful world of television.

Chris Pratt Flashes Amy Poehler His Junk

Do we have your attention? Good. As if we didn’t envy Amy Poehler enough, now this. Turns out during the second season of “Parks and Rec,” instead of rocking a pair of nude-colored undies for a scene (which we assume are hilarious) Chris Pratt went full monty during one take. And he got the reaction he was looking for.

No-Joke “Seinfeld,” “Friends,” and “The Big Bang Theory”

As is often the case with Best of Last Week articles, we bring you something you never even knew you wanted: clips of your favorite comedies with all the jokes removed.

Frankly we don’t see a difference with “The Big Bang Theory,” but that’s just us.

Stephen Colbert Gives Himself a New Website

In the wake of Sarah Palin doing something else ridiculous, Stephen Colbert has countered with his own new project: TheSarahPalinChannel.com.

“Stephen Colbert’s Angry Echo Chamber,” as the online spoof news channel is called (at least we assume it’s a spoof), will cost you $9.94 to hear opinions you already agree with.  Sounds like a pretty good deal.

Dunkin Donut’s “Shark Week”-Themed Donut

It’s that glorious time of year again.  That week (or two or three) in August when the Internet and airwaves get taken over by a singular, toothy purpose.  That’s right, Shark Week is coming.  You know you’re excited.  And this year the Discovery Channel and Dunkin Donuts have partnered on a new delectable treat.

You’re not seeing things.  That’s a Dunkin Donut decorated to look like a life ring.  (We don’t recommend you throw it into the water, but it’s bound to taste pretty good doused in coffee.)  And if you take a photo of yourself biting into a Dunkin product and post it to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #DDSHARKWEEK, you could win a prize.  Who doesn’t like prizes?

Unfortunately for us, being in California, we can’t partake in this delicious and hilarious marketing scheme, but it’s fun to look at.

And remember, for every person killed by a shark, 25 million sharks are murdered by people.  The odds are in your favor this Shark Week.

Damon Lindelof Writes “LOST”-Themed Episode of “Phineas and Ferb.”

The co-creator of “Lost” has written an episode for the Disney Channel show that will hark back to Lindelof’s time spent on that infamous island. Titled “Lost in Danville,” the episode is said to revolve around a mysterious locked capsule that appears in the backyard of the main characters. Expectations are running high about the ending…

We’re not sure this last one counts as “TV” news necessarily, but it’s funny, and it’s our post, so we’re going for it.

Do An Impression, Get A Discount On Your Burger

Not a Burger Stand, a restaurant in Burbank, CA, is offering discounts for customers who order their meals in the voice of a TV or movie character.  Each week comes with a new hand-drawn chalkboard and a new character of their choosing.
