A guide to what we’re barely putting up with this week.
The Babadook. Not since The Omen has a creepy kid movie been so genuinely, completely, effectively creepy.
Syfy’s Christmas Icetastrophe. Oh, Syfy. No one cares what Sharknado is doing for the holiday season.
The annual onslaught of flavored vodka ads. ’Tis the season for drinkable cake, whipped cream, and candy canes.
NBC’s Michael Bublé’s Christmas In New York. It’s really brave of NBC to air a music special starring a guy whose voice is at a frequency only sad moms, grocery store managers, and people in elevators can hear.
Proof that a douchey pub crawl in a Santa suit is still a douchey pub crawl, SantaCon. A.k.a. the annual Gathering Of The Ugh-alos.
The filler awards show, The People Magazine Awards. The magazine you flip through for 20 minutes on a plane or in a dentist’s office is now somehow a two-hour television program.
The thoroughly unnecessary continuation of the Real World franchise, Real World: Skeletons. Apparently they’ve run out of cities in which to set the show, and are now just focusing on one part of the cast’s anatomy per season. First up: skeletons.
