2008 was the crappiest of crappy years. It's not surprising then that the winner of Best Year Ever was something stupid. They chose Cory Worthington. This was the Australian idiot who threw a big destructive party way back in January. Of course the other choices weren't much better: Cloris Leachman, David Cook, Sarah Palin, and the pregnant man. Cloris might have been the better choice. But then they couldn't have done the funny realty show series of jokes. Regardless this is definitely the year Best Year Ever jumped the shark. As much as I enjoy Paul F. Topkins, it's just not as good.
I've decided the best pop culture show is The Soup on E! Joel McHale is a great host. Their year end show is The Clip Down and they have only shown part one. Part two is on 1/2/9. In addition to their weekly pop culture show, they also have another clip show called "The Soup Presents" where they put a bunch of clips in the same theme together.
There are other year end show such as The Today Show's top 5 news stories of the year which is on tonight on NBC. I'll be very happy when this crappy year is over.
