1. Dan Rather
Dan has been around a long time. But this year in particular, his contributions have stood out. His thoughtful, intuitive, humanitarian Facebook posts are sometimes all we need to bring a moment of sanity back to the insane atmosphere that we are all living in right now. "Dan for President!" Or at least "Dan for Best thing about Facebook Right Now." (Follow Dan here.)
2. Conan does Germany
Not sure if you know, but Conan's still out there, over at TBS, cracking everyone up. This bit from his recent trip to Berlin gave me lots of giggles. Enjoy! Watch more from Conan on his YouTube page here.
3. "You'll Never Walk Alone" by The Dropkick Murphys
The Dropkicks are BACK and better than ever! Their new album 11 Short Stories of Pain & Glory doesn't drop until January 6, 2017 (if you pre-order on itunes you get instant downloads of "YNWA" and "Blood") so for now this can tide you over:
4. "Younger" (TV Land)
Another season of "Younger" just wrapped up and, I gotta say, this show just keeps getting better and better. The premise, while specific (a 40-something divorced mom pretends to be 26 to get a job in the competitive publishing field in NYC), hasn't grown tiring, the relationships are complicated and real and it's fun to see who will find out Liza's secret next and how. Catch up on TVLand.com or on your cable's On Demand channel.
5. "All I Want for Christmas" Carpool Karaoke, The Late, Late Show with James Corden
This. This is what we all need.
Happy Holidays Y'all!
