Happy official start to the 2011 Fall TV Season! That does deserve an exclamation point, if you ask me. Did anyone watch the Emmys last night? There were a number of good, award-worthy shows that actually won, even if many of them were the same shows we’ve seen win over and over again. Great to see Kyle Chandler win for “Friday Night Lights”, and though the show lost in the Best Drama category to “Mad Men”, I am in no real way upset about that, given how great that show is too. “Modern Family” did exceptionally well last night too, snagging a pair of Best Supporting Acting awards along with some writing and Best Comedy Series. Great for them too, they deserved to win. Other good wins include Melissa McCarthy for “Mike & Mollly” and “The Daily Show” in a pair of Best Variety, Music or Comedy Series categories. Congrats to all, now let’s get some new episodes on the air. Okay, so amidst my excitement for TV, let’s get back to music right now. Pick Your Poison today is a delight and I’m excited about that too. I can recommend tracks from A Classic Education, Co La, Empress Hotel, Guineafowl, Jukebox the Ghost, Mezzanine Owls, Reversing Falls and Way Yes.
