My mom and sister were watching one of those shows, and they gave me this weird look when I pointed out that the show contained no actual information.

But it's a Music Video channel. It's not *supposed* to contain any actual information.

Content-free content has made this country great, by gum, and we're not gonna let something like "actual information" get in the way of that!

The best thing about I Love This Decade of Pop Culture shows is the horror shown by The Kid.

"You listened to what?"

"You wore those?"

"The video games stank!"

I like to imagine El Guapo and Abbie making comments on these things.

I just liked watching the episode with the Burning Bed in it. Did I see a smegging DIME?! NO SIR I DID NOT. VH1 owes me likeness royalties, I tell ya.

Man...Michael Ian Black's fall from the grace of The State has been slow and painful. I mean, Johnny Bluejeans? Okay. Everything since then? Sweet christ.

I feel sorry for the guy. Really. He needs someone to write him material that, you know, works. And like, a cast of people with talent around him.

Aside from those two, what has he ever really done?

Same with Mo Rocca and the Daily Show.

These guys get a couple of moderately humorous bits and all of a sudden they're "personalities" who get to sit around just talking about shit. Celebrities are bad enough. People who are celebrities for no damn reason...that just confuses me.

oh man, Mo Rocca is the worst. He's got this nasally voice and he is totally, totally unfunny. The guy's standup act must suck.

Now, if anyone deserves to start talking shit, its Dave Chappelle. I mean, god, his show is great, he's been hilarious in virtually every movie he's been in, and his stand up kills. He's gotta be "the* black comic right now. Why can't they ask him to sit down and talk about stupid shit like Garbage Pail Kids?

He was the voice of the Pets.com sock puppet. That should provide some perspective...
