Monkey Business

I was going to write somethin gup this week about good shows on television that people probably aren't watching. One of the ones I was going to highlight was Love Monkey.

Love Monkey initially filled a hole on the TiVo. It looked like an interesting show, but I figured I would see how it was. Well, after the first episode, I was totally hooked. The show is all about a record company A&R guy. The great part about this? The music on the show is constant and there are lots of musical references. Being a bit of a music geek, this made me fall in love with the show.

I thought it had some great comedic moments. I thought Tom Cavanagh did a great job of portraying the quirky lead character. I also though there were some great co-stars who definitely added something to the show. And did I mention the music?

The show also featured a kid named Teddy Geiger. His song Confidence seems to be hitting the radio airwaves right now. He had some great moments in the show playing some tunes, all of which I would assume are on his album coming out soon. I'm going to have to pick that up. Almost reminds me of a young John Mayer.

Well, as I was thinking about this, I heard a rather sad thing. I guess this show has had rather lackluster ratings (why? I have no clue). Well, CBS has gone and put the show on hiatus. Sucks. Seems like this has happened with a few shows I have liked recently. I hope CBS tries again with this show, I definitely enjoyed it.

And speaking of, anyone read the book this is based on?
