How many times have you been in the middle of an episode of TV when a song comes on and you love it, but you don’t recognize it? It’s happened to me a ton, and it’s always a pain to figure out what it was. The information is usually out there, but it’s hard to find. Not so, anymore. Back in 2006, a guy created heardontv.com, which allows users to submit songs heard in their favorite TV shows. The submissions are moderated, and if approved, they then appear on the site. Another cool thing is when it’s available, a link to buy the song online is provided, and when a song is free online (legally, of course!), a link to the download is provided, as well.
That’s pretty cool, but that’s not all. I know not everyone watches TV at their computer like I do, which is why the new app (available on iTunes & Google Play) for your phone or tablet is really quite handy. I don’t know too many people who are TV obsessed like I am that aren’t within arm’s reach of their phone or tablet while they do anything, let alone while they watch TV each night.
Here’s all their info:
It’s been a bit since I took the time to do a news post, but without further adieu, I’m here to bring you up to speed on some interesting news and renewals going on in “TV land.”
A little while ago, Twitter exploded with the news of a Boy Meets World spinoff called Girl Meets World, which would feature Riley, Cory and Topanga’s daughter. I am thrilled at the prospect of seeing some of my favorite characters from my childhood shows back on screen for my daughter to enjoy. Now they are adding Teo Halm to the cast as Riley’s brother, Elliott. Even more exciting is the fact that the original creator/executive producer Michael Jacobs is in charge of the pilot, which should assure us of some of the old brilliance intact. The pilot is being considered by Disney Channel for their 2013-14 schedule. TVLine.com

Last night was The 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards, hosted by the fantastically funny Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. It was a great night of TV with some really nice acceptance speeches. I loved Anne Hathaway and Adele. As for TV winners, Damian Lewis was smoking hot as he accepted the award for Best Performance for an Actor in a TV Drama for his role on Homeland. Claire Danes won for her role on that same show, which also won Best TV Drama. Meanwhile, in the Best TV Series, Comedy, or Musical category, HBO’s Girls won the award for Best Show, with Lena Dunham and Don Cheadle winning Best Performance for an Actress & Actor for their roles in Girls & House of Lies. Out of all the great nominations, Game Change won for best TV Movie or Miniseries, with Kevin Costner and Julianne Moore winning Best Performance by an Actor & Actress for their roles on Hatfields & McCoys and Game Change respectively. Finally, for Best Supporting Actress/Actor in a Series, Miniseries or TV Movie, Maggie Smith won for Downton Abbey, while Ed Harris won for Game Change. It was a great night for cable shows!
Now that the Golden Globes are over, it’s time to start looking at the Oscars, which airs February 24th. I honestly have no idea who I would bet my money on in February. This awards show in particular usually has a ton of strong contenders, and this year is no different. The cinemetography from Life of Pi to the great story telling on some of the other films up for Best Motion Picture will make it a tough race.
Of course, then we have the Emmy Awards coming up with nominations in March, and that’s the one I’m most looking forward to. It is the season of awards shows, isn’t it? Were you happy with the results from Sunday? Who do you think should win in February? Let us know in the comments below! And check out Wikipedia to see the history of the Golden Globes!
It’s that time of year again where the Emmy Nominations are announced so that TV critics and viewers alike can jump for joy that their favorites got recognized—or balk at the stupidity of some of the nominations.
Here at TV Is My Pacifier, we are an opinionated bunch, so we’ve decided to not only give you a run down of the nominees, but also grace you with our opinions. You’re welcome. 😉
Jump ahead to see who we all think you should be rooting for. Continue reading
Check out my number one favorite moment from the last season of True Blood plus Character Posters for Eric, Sookie, & Bill!
#1: Sookie’s Sex Dream – Sookie had a dream after she was shot, and in her dream, she ended up being with both Eric and Bill. That was an intensely hot dream that had us all blushing by the time it was done. Hot. Hot. Hot.
