Eh. The Grammys are on tonight. People will be watching to see if Janet Jackson does appear and does apologize, and even though Gothamist wastes a lot of time watching awards show, we have another game plan: We will watch Fox's excellent Sunday night lineup of King of the Hill, Oliver Beene, The Simpsons, Bernie Mac, Malcolm in the Middle, and Arrested Development. Seriously, this is the best comedy lineup that any channel has. We'll tape/TiVo watch Sex and the City and Curb Your Enthusiasm for the 10PM hour. We're not actively boycotting the grammys; we just rather see what wacky hijinks Bobby Hill and Brianna get into.

If you're into the Grammys, Mary Huhn's article about how this year's nominations are hipper than usual may interest you, though the concept of hip is certainly a relative matter for the Grammys. And celebrity stylist Philip Bloch expects a lot of cleavage at this year's show, in spite of Janet Jackson. But CBS has 40 extra people on call to monitor the performance, to ready censor buttons, even though a CBS spokesperson says, "We're not going to use the technology to turn the Grammys into SpongeBob SquarePants. It will still be the Grammys." Oh, so it will still be lame? All right!
