American Music Awards 
  • I'm already Star Wars'ed out and the movie's not out until 12/18
  • I bet JLo dumped that Indian pelt the second she got off stage.  "I'm NEVER wearing this thing again" wayyyyy toooooo hoooootttt
  • Nicki Minaj didn't look thrilled when Anaconda came on and JLo was shakin HER booty to it.
  • Did you catch Bieber doing the robot during JLo's performance?
  • Prince had a guitar he didn't play, a lense he didn't use and a 70's fro he could have dumped. The guy's a legend and 57 years old so I'll let it go.  
  • Favorite R&B Soul Album: The Weekend
  • JLo's second dress was a gorgeous red sparkly number. Looked like they couldn't get her hair done in time so they threw it up in a bun real fast. They also didn't blot her enough, she was still sweaty from the opening number
  • Rebel Wilson wrapped in tin foil looked like the turkeys we're all going to be cooking in a couple of days. Not a good choice Rebel. Melissa McCarthy's got a new line that would have been MUCH more complimentary.
  • I know she has to have something more than gorgeous eyes, but Hannah Davis seems like an empty headed chick. Nothing inside. Guess it doesn't matter once she becomes Mrs. Jeter. 
  • 5 Seconds of Summer is the most unattractive boy band ever
  • Luke Bryan and his wife were caught asking each other who 5SOS was. 
  • Selena Gomez was up next with "Same Old Love" The hair extensions were a little too long if you ask me. Selena got bleeped 3x. Could there have been any less words in that song. Did you notice there were no shots of Bieber during her performance? Was that song about him?
  • Nicki Minaj was sort of mellow for Nicki Minaj
  • Pop/Rock Duo or Group: One Direction. They changed outfits from the Red Carpet. 
  • Frankie Grande was out of his mind for the entire show. I felt bad for the guy sitting next to him who probably wanted to beat the cr@p out of him.
  • JLo was all put back together for her 3rd outfit. Blotted, hair redone, beautiful.
  • I hate Jenny McCarthy and her glasses
  • Carrie Underwood went for a country vampire thing with her performance which actually bored me a bit.
  • I still get Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez confused.I just know that Selena's the one who all Justin Bieber's songs are about.
  • Beautiful big music comes our of Meghan Trainor's super tiny mouth 
  • Never noticed Charlie Puth's eyebrow scar before. I didn't know he sang "Marvin Gaye and Get It On" 
  • Holy cow! What was with the Puth/Trainor tonguefest? Are they even dating? 
  • No Taylor Swift in the audience to dance and mouth every word? No problem. The camera dude found Bailee Madison and Hailee Steinfeld or Meghan Trainor to cover for her
  • Best Male Country Artist-Luke Bryan 
  • Florida Georgia Line guys bug me
  • Jlo costume change #4- hair down and no shine at all. 
  • Ariana Grande's high heel talents very impressive. She got bleeped a couple of times though. I wouldn't think a tiny little thing with a Kaballah string would use profanity but apparently she does
  • Guessing that was Tyrese's kid. I'm sure Wilmer Valderama was thrilled to be on stage with a 4 year old.
  • Best Soundtrack-Pitch Perfect 2 (No way is that better than Empire)
  • Anna Kendrick annoys me
  • Gigi Hadid wins best dressed. OMG, Joe Jonas must have been stabbing himself after seeing what he let go.  
  • Best Hip Hop Album- Nicki Minaj still seemed super mellow for Nicki Minaj
  • Zendaya is so beautiful that she can get away with a dress that looked like someone's crazy knitting Aunt made it.
  • One Direction performed "Perfect" which made me very happy.
  • Clueless 20 year reunion-SHOOT ME! How amazing did Jeremy Sisto an Alicia Silverstone look? Name their characters in the movie for some bonus points
  • I'm just not interested in Gwen now unless Blake's around
  • Very cute for Joe Jonas and his new band members to introduce brother Nick. What was on the guys ear an old '45? 
  • Nick Jonas killed. You guys need to watch him in Kingdom. He's SO damn good 
  • Jlo's 5th outfit was a Stevie Nicks thing from the 80's
  • Best New Artist-Sam Hunt. I love him, he's gay right? NOT THAT THERE'S ANYTHING WRONG WITH IT
  • First time I had to ask my son who someone was: Hailee Steinfeld & Sean Mendes who introduced  Walk the Moon 
  • Still love "Shut Up & Dance"
  • Paula Abdul and Donnie Wahlberg looked pretty good but I've lost respect for Donnie now that he's with Jenny
  • Pop Rock/Female Artist-Ariana Grande got bleeped again but who cares? She had her grandma and her whole family and just seemed truly shocked to win. I love her
  • All I think about whenever I see Pete Wentz and Fall Out Boy is that he's Ashley Simpson's baby daddy. 
  • Love the new Coldplay tune and the ageless Chris Martin but what was with the baby gorilla dancers?
  • Norman Reedus creeps me out in general
  • Best Country Female-Carrie Underwood who is starting to bore me overall now
  • JLo's 6th out fit was a yellow jumpsuit thing that only she could pull off. I'm not a fan of yellow anything really but she looked sick in that thing. 
  • The Weekend performed with a lot of fire around him. He got bleeped a few times. I'd be nervous with all that fire around that hair.
  • P Diddy/Daddy/Sean lookin sharp. Class move to give a shout out to JLo or was he trying to secure a hook-up after the show?
  • Collaboration of the Year-Bieber/Skrillex/Diplo. Doesn't Skrillex look like Corey Feldman?
  • Was wondering what happened to Tyler Lautner. Interesting that he only shows now when Taylor Swift is missing. 
  • Quite a statement for Mackelmore. I guess he's not into prescription pills anymore, huh? He got bleeped a lot
  • 5th Harmony is the most unattractive girl group ever. So they should hook up with 5SOS to keep it simple
  • Fave Alternative Artist-Fall Out Boy
  • Alannis Morrisette's gained some weight in 20 years. I'd have dumped the leather pants. The duet was decent. "You Ought To Know" is a tough song to sing. 
  • Favorite Hip Hop Artist- Nicki Minaj who was STILL super mellow. Something HAD to be up with her.
  • Jared Leto's tribute to Paris gave me chills. Even with pink hair Jared can command and audience. You need to see his videos. He's an amazing performer. 
  • Celine Dion's performance was good but I did check my email during it. Was that wrong?
  • I gotta be honest, I could have lived without the whole Harrison Ford/Star Wars/Pentatonix thing. At that point in the show, I just wanted BIEBER!
  • Favorite R&B Artist- The Weekend
  • FINALLY...BIEBER who was awesome. Loved the water, loved every second. He killed. Come on just admit it, Bieber's enjoyable. 
Madam Secretary
Did we know Russell was married? I don't think so. Is he sick or is she just a nut job. I think he's got something but I'm drawing a blank? That was Ron Glass from Barney Miller in the Situation Room right? SO psyched that Russell and Elizabeth figured out how to get rid of Craig quickly. HATED that guy. Is Pelonium a real thing? Need to Google that when I have a minute. No sleeve issues for Liz but the tassel necklace seemed a bit much with that suit. Do you think Demetri dies in the subway? If Demetri dies because of Liz and the Prez, I can only imagine the blowout between Henry and Liz when he finds out about it. 
-FOX made huge news over the weekend. Well, to a person like me who's obsessed with ratings it's huge news. FOX will no longer be using  or "acknowledging"  same day ratings. They're going with Live+3 and Live+7. Here's the thing about these numbers, they don't change the heart of the story. What I mean is, the L3 and L7 numbers may be larger than the L-SD number and yes they may reflect the real consumption trends, but I don't recall a programs ranking changing significantly from Live to Live +same day to Live + 3 or Live +7. As an advertiser we only pay for Live, C3 or C7, so FOX (or any network for that matter) can put whatever spin on a shows ratings they want, the only way they benefit is on the Live, C3 or C7 numbers. These numbers need to also include the online/on demand viewership to truly change the conversation. I still don't think there will be too many surprises once you do include these. For advertisers who have time sensitive offers and pricing, C7 could be a problem. I could talk about this for days, so I better stop while I'm ahead.

-Spoilers are a HUGE problem for everyone these days. I know it first hand. Not just as a SpoilER but as a SpoilEE too. Between delayed viewing, time shifting and binge watching, we all have to be SO careful and watch what we say. Thanks to my friends at Netflix, now we know the actual etiquette. Watch this video and you'll know what to do to be sure NOT to spoil anything for anyone. Thanks Netflix

-RIP Jim Perry. Jim was the host of Card Sharks, one of my favorite game shows back in the day. Remember that one? It had huge playing cards that I always wondered about. Did they have a giant rubber band? Did they come in a giant box? How did they shuffle them?

-Netflix added Lost in Space to it's list of projects. They're going to revamp, reboot and release a new Lost in Space for us to all enjoy and compare to the original. Dr. Smith was the guys name in that one, right? 

-Didn't I say that SNL would have to give other political candidates equal time? Well I was right. Turns out I do know what I'm talking about. The Trumpster was actually on air for only 12 minutes according to SNL so they need to offer 12 minutes to any of the other candidates too. It's the law!

Monday's Trivia Question:  I couldn't think of the condo complex that Mr. & Mrs. Seinfeld lived in, in Florida.  Finally remembered it this morning. Do you know the name of it?
