Dallas on the TV
I've seen all of 42 minutes' worth of The Tonight Show since Jay Leno took over, and I won't be watching tonight. Sorry. Guy's not funny. Hasn't been in 20 years. But maybe you wanna tune in tonight: Looks like Emmitt Smith'll be on, talking about making it to the finals of Dancing With the Stars, where he'll face off against Mario Lopez in what's sure to be a rousing, fiery dance-off. Allegedly, the NFL's leading rusher is the odds-on fave to take the competition. Sniffsniff. Emmitt versus the guy from Saved By the Bell. Could. Not. Be. More. Proud.
Also tonight, Mesquite's own Foxymorons will have a song featured on ABC's series Men In Trees (the one with Anne Heche; no idea), which airs locally at 8 p.m. The episode's titled "The Menaissance" (I'm out already), and it'll contain the Foxymorons cut "This Heart of Mine" from the band's latest album Hesitation Eyes, which is pretty swell--kinda Pavement-y, kinda Replacements-y, kinda good-y. The band recommends "you grab a blanket and a warm beverage and snuggle up with someone you like/love in front of the television Friday night." Uh, sure. OK. But nothing breaks the mood more than a TV show starring Anne Heche. But we will try. --Robert Wilonsky
