Dreck the Halls

So Jessica Simpson and Nick Not Mr. Simpson had their cheesy Christmas special last night and even video-exhumed Bing Crosby to sing with them (as if it isn't enough we have that real-time odd Crosby-Bowie duet, not to mention a Bob Mould-Craig Kilborn parody of that).

In the tradition of ridiculous holiday broadcasts, the very clever site Whatever offers its Ten Least Successful Holiday Specials of All Time.

My nominees:
It's an Abu Ghraib Christmas, Charlie Brown! with special guest Lynndie England.

Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer Meets Godzilla.

And who could forget: Pink Lady and Jeff Do Christmas, the legendary un-aired episode that features the Japanese singing- and short-shorts wearing- sensations hilariously mis-performing "Deck the Halls" in a way later to be made famous in A Christmas Story. Plus, Santa, the girls, Jeff and Cheap Trick in a hot tub!

OK. My caretaker used to write crits of art exhibitions without actually going to them, and you're writing about a TV show you didn't see. Both are reprehensible, but, face it, fun. However the Nick and Jessica show was FABULOUS! Excellent music, high comedy, excellent tits and sprightly production values. I bet you don't watch the Rose Parade either. You probably have something against show tunes. And, for your information, the Bowie/Crosby duet was fueled by psychedelics AND heroin. Der Bingle was tripping and nodding, and still maintained, sort of.

I'd prefer to think the show featured sprightly tits and excellent productions values, both of which you can get if you lay enough money down.

And as for show tunes, Ib et I know more songs from more shows than any Westie. I mean, can he imitate John Cullum doing "Shenandoah"?
