"Hey! I Wrote This!"

It’s the first piece I’ve gotten webpublished at MSNBC.com in months (or webyears) and I like how it came out (with a little help from TV Editor Gael Fashingbauer Cooper).

Class of ’08: Awarding Honors in a Television Yearbook

Just trying a different way to do the “best of the TV season” blahblah, and since it mostly corresponds to the American school year, why not? And while the editing did actually improve my writing a bit, two bits were cut out that I’ll provide to my blog audience if you click this link:

Most Likely to Succeed
Sylar (Zachary Quinto) of “Heroes”

Let’s face it, he’s a very dynamic personality, and is known for getting the best out of everyone he meets, even if he has been a bit of a terror. Still, the consensus is that sometime in the future, he’s going to become a Galaxy-Class good guy. It’s only logical.
runner-up: Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum) on “Smallville”.

(Yeah, I admit it, kind of over-cute fake subtlety and mixed message at the end)

And the content under “Valedictorian” I had originally labeled as “Summa Cum Laude”, and used the “Valedictorian” title for this…

Craig Ferguson of “The Late Late Show”
Not just anybody can talk for ten minutes extemporaneously without his audience falling asleep or committing mass suicide. He may the only person ever to speak in defense of Britney Spears without sobbing “Leave Britney Alone” and the first to speak at the White House Press Dinner without losing his self-respect or his citizenship.
runner-up: Denny Crane (William Shatner) of “Boston Legal”, because sometimes what you say doesn’t need to make sense if you’re good enough at saying it.

Your Turn...
