Midwest TV stations hard up for programming over the holidays were ripe for the pranking.  Nick Prueher, one half of the team behind the Found Footage Festival, spent the time between Thanksgiving and New Year's booking himself as a guest on TV stations in Illinois and Wisconsin. His angle was "Chef Keith Guerke," a cooking guru who was supposedly an expert on what to do with leftovers.  However, the supercut of footage above showed Chef Keith was anything but. He makes ice cream cones out of mashed potatoes and gravy, blends a Thanksgiving dinner and even pushes hosts with his weird comments.

It's Christmastime! Can't you hear the music? As I wander through retail stores for my various shopping needs, I notice that the standard rotation of acceptable pop music jams has been updated to include holiday music. And not just any holiday. It's Christmas! I know some people will say, "Christmas music now? It shouldn't start until after Thanksgiving. " And to those people I say, "Bah, humbug!" It's never too early for Christmas. Especially if your bottom line depends on it. Jesus may be the reason for the season, but we celebrate by giving gifts to each other.

TLC continues to summon the end of civilization: The network has ordered four additional episodes of its reality hit, "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. " Yes, that's right viewers. We'll be subjected to an extra regular episode, plus three HOLLAday specials to air at Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. They'll all star 5-year-old pageant princess Alana Thompson and her redneck family. But it's your fault, America! The series averaged 2.3 million viewers in its first season, which ends the first half of its first season tonight.

Roy's Furniture broke ground last week on a new building in the same spot where a fire destroyed the Lincoln Park storefront. The furniture store opened at 2455 N. Sheffield Ave. in 1981 and burned down in May. “There's a lot of history in the building that burnt down. We're all excited. We've seen the drawings and know it'll be new and better and we're excited to get back over there,” said general manager Stacey Flood, Roy's niece. The family-run company hired a contractor, whose father erected the original building, to build the new location with plenty of windows.
