Carnegie Hall-worthy!  Who woulda thunk it?!

Carnegie Hall-worthy! Who woulda thunk it?!

DWTS: Brooke Burke and Derek Hough were declared the winners last night.  We’re cool with that, though we also would’ve been happy if Lance won.

DWTS Pt. 2: Does life change after you’ve won the trophy?  Hardly.

Gossip Girl: Josh Schwartz has squashed yesterday’s news of a Lily and Rufus flashback show.  What he’s planning instead: webisodes all about Blair’s maid, Dorota.

Carson Daly: The TV host, known for getting stars to spill, has been keeping a secret of his own: he’s gonna be a dad!  Jennifer Love Hewitt and Tara Reid, you better get busy!

SAG: The actors’ strike is more likely to happen when you got big names like Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep supporting it.  Thanks a lot, guys.

NBC: Among the winter schedule changes: two SNL specials, more reality shows and a TV movie.  We doubt ratings will improve.

Family Guy: Seth Green (who voices Chris) and Carnegie Hall kinda seem like a mismatch, but we guess you gotta give the people what they want.  And what they want is a live reading of Family Guy scripts.  Go figure.

Reality TV: Here’s another reason to hate it: people are actually being diagnosed with Truman Syndrome, a type of paranoia where they (incorrectly) think their life is being documented by cameras.  If it wasn’t so sad, we’d probably laugh.

Thanksgiving: Forget the turkey.  All you need is a TV!  There’ll be marathons of faves like I Love Lucy, House, Fresh Prince, Arrested Development and lots more ALL WEEKEND!

90210: One of those aforementioned marathons will be on SOAPNet, with focusing on Kelly’s love life (creatively titled Kelly’s Leftovers).  Doesn’t get much better than that.  But it does get worse: we won’t have access to SOAPNet that day! Tragic.

MTV: Will have its own Inaugural Ball in D.C.  No worries if you can’t go;  they’ll also broadcast it on MTV’s 894328297312 channels.

SIZZLED OUT: Joey Fatone (NSYNC)

STILL SIZZLING: This tear drop-tattooed artist made the best album of the year, or so says Blender.

AFTER 10 YEARS AND A 3-HOUR FINALE, TOTAL REQUEST LIVE IS OFFICIALLY OFF THE AIR.

The last TRL, renamed Total Finale Live for this special event, was a jam-packed celebration of the show that defined our childhood afternoons.

SOME THOUGHTS

Carson Daly returned to emcee the event with current host Damien Fahey.

The show actually started with a performance by Beyonce.

Weird that it was held on a Sunday night, and not a weekday, like the normal TRL.

Appearances from celebs ran the gamut from Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Jonathan Davis, Snoop Dogg and…Samuel L. Jackson?!

First on-air (and live!) interview with Travis Barker post-plane crash.  Very subdued, not that we blame him.

Diddy pretended to (or perhaps really??) choke up when he was honored for making the most appearances on TRL.

Awkward moment: Carson referring to ex Jennifer Love Hewitt.

Co-hosted by all the former VJs, including three of our faves: Hilarie Burton (yay One Tree Hill!), Dave Holmes and Jesse Camp, from the very first I Wanna Be a VJ contest.

Fall Out Boy performed…minus Pete Wentz.  He later called into the show and said he was in California prepping for imminent fatherhood.  Will it really be that soon?!

Soundbyte: “I bought Twilight on bootleg and watched it like 72 times”–Pete Wentz.  Setting a great example, as always.

Did Hilary Duff run into ex Joel Madden?

Kid Rock insisted on smoking a cigar on stage.  And here we thought it was illegal to smoke in New York venues…

Justin Timberlake and JC Chasez represented NSYNC but it would’ve been cool if the whole band returned AND performed.

X-Tina, Chris Brown, Ben Stiller and others spoke via satellite.

Disappointing moment: Eminem, on the phone, refuses to give any details about his upcoming album, Relapse.

Quintessential window references and segments with the Times Square crowd.

KoRn was hailed as the first rock band of TRL; brought back memories of the KoRn (number 3) spot.

A short segment looked back at the top MTV News moments, giving due respect to 9/11.  Wish they also mentioned Aaliyah.

Many shameless plugs: Bolt, Diddy’s new cologne (who was made fun of for hyping the most stuff over the years), Last Call, FNMTV and more.

East Coast and West Coast rap/hip-hop came together in medley featuring Nelly, Snoop and Ludacris.

Unnecessary moment: knocking LFO.

Soundbyte: “One of the finer moments of my life”–JT recalling when Halle Berry surprised him on a TRL ep.

Backstreet Boys given lots of praise, though we wish former member Kevin returned for the performance.

Soundbyte: “They outlived all the other boy bands and they outlived TRL“–Carson on BSB.

Noticeably absent: 98 Degrees, Jessica Simpson, Destiny’s Child, Mandy Moore, Jay-Z, Avril, Sum-41, Linkin Park and others.

Are all the TRL employees without jobs now?  After all, MTV (and parent Viacom) are doing lay-offs…

Soundbyte: Britney is “the queen of TRL“–Carson on Brit Brit who “couldn’t be here.”

Loved that some of our favorite moments were re-aired: the debut party for BSB’s Millenium album, Mariah and her ice cream truck, countless others.

Speaking of counting, the TRL finale wouldn’t be complete without a final countdown. The Top 10 videos from TRL history, as decided by the producers: Hey-Ya (Outkast), What’s My Age Again (Blink-182), Yeah (Ludacris, Usher, et. al.), Crazy in Love (Beyonce), Bawitdaba (Kid Rock), Dirrty (Christina Aguilera), Bye Bye Bye (NSYNC), I Want It That Way (BSB), The Real Slim Shady (Eminem), and, at number one, Baby One More Time (Britney).

Soundbyte: “Goodnight from New York and goodnight TRL“–Carson.

TEAR!

Feels like just yesterday, doesn't it, Carson?

Feels like just yesterday, doesn't it, Carson?

Brothers & Sisters: It was really nice that the show wanted to incorporate Proposition 8 awareness into its show.  Too bad the episode will air after the measure passed.  Damn scheduling changes.

Supreme Court: Considering they hear very few cases, it’s really bothersome that they’re spending their time debating the use of curse words on TV.  Aren’t there more important issues going on?

CNN: Were you as confused as we were by the hologram magic on CNN’s election coverage the other night?  This article explains the science behind it and, well, we’re still confused.

Gulliver’s Travels: We never had any incentive before to read the book and, whaddyaknow, that’s about to change!  The classic tale is being made into a movie with Jack Black!  That’s enough to send us right to the library.

Google: Any chance at partnering with Yahoo is gone now that the big bad government said doing so would break antitrust laws.  We happen to think Monopoly the game is a lot more fun.  Maybe not for Google or Yahoo, though.

Political Cartoons: Man, we wish we could draw.  We wish we could be funny.  Political cartoonists get to be both!  And they’ve done a killer job with election results.

Youth Votership: Turnout was up by more than 2 million in comparison to the ’04 election.  Let’s hope it keeps rising in the future.

Election 2008: In case you’ve been living under a rock lately (or you want to reminisce or you just want to be amused) MTV has condensed the entire election into a 60-second clip.  Surprisingly, it’s pretty good!

TRL: We’re less than two weeks away from when the iconic show will air no more.  Looking back on the past 10 years, it’s like reliving our childhood all over again!

Backstreet Boys: Competing with NSYNC may seem so 90s but the original boy band admits they’re “still striving to be better!”  Watch out, Jonas Brothers!

SIZZLED OUT: Pete Wentz

STILL SIZZLING: This animated show is being called out by gay-rights groups for using the phrase ‘that’s so gay.’  How stupid can be you be?  Like, duh!

I'm not Sharpay!

I'm not Sharpay!

Eminem: Finally coming back on the radar.  But not with new music but a memoir instead.  He’s had an interesting public life thus far.  We can’t wait to get more details!

Andy Dick: He gets to wear a new accessory for the next year: an alcohol monitor bracelet!

Prison Break: Rumor has it there are 3 deaths in the upcoming episodes.  While we’re sad to see anyone go, maybe this means the show will finally have a simple plot.

Gossip Girl: Critics are saying it gets better with each episode–and the best is still yet to come.  We totally disagree…and yet we can’t stop watching!

Chris Kilpatrick: Called ex-bandmate Lance Bance the worst dancer in NSYNC but also noted he’s “amazing” on DWTS.  That’s sort of a compliment.  Maybe.  Kinda.

Ashley Tisdale: She’s said she wants to shed her HSM image.  Step one: dying her hair.  Weird to see her with this color when Seventeen has her on the cover of their new issue as a blonde.
