America’s Got Talent 3 concludes tonight

Three and a half months after it first debuted, America’s Got Talent 3 concludes tonight at 9 p.m. ET, awarding its winner $1 million.

Remaining in the competition are five acts: four singers (Neal E. Boyd, Donald Braswell, Eli Mattson, and Queen Emily) and Nuttin But Stringz, a duo that plays hip hop and rock on violins. The woman who broke things with her massive breasts did not continue in the competition.

MSNBC’s Victor Balta runs down each of the final acts, and says that while “America has never seen an act like Nuttin’ But Stringz” and “their unique brand of hip-hop and rock played on classical violins,” “with four very different singers also in the mix, there is no odds-on favorite.”

Surprisingly, man not eaten alive on Eaten Alive

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
