TVXOHOF, 11/2008: W

With the November induction into the TV Crossover Hall Of Fame, it's been the tradition to celebrate the portrayal of a politician, usually a President, or some other newsmaker or even a newscaster. In the past the TVXOHOF has seen such luminaries as Walter Cronkite, JFK and Jackie Kennedy, John Kennedy Jr., Sarek, Murphy Brown, George Washington and Gerald and Betty Ford joining the Hall.

This year is no different. And this being an election year with a change in regime guaranteed since neither candidate is an incumbent, Toobworld Central is marking the occasion by inducting the outgoing POTUS, George W. Bush.

Actually, "marking the occasion" is too tepid; we're CELEBRATING his departure!

Let's leave it at that.

So here are W's qualifications for induction into the TV Crossover Hall of Fame:

In Earth Prime-Time:

'DC 9/11: Time Of Crisis'




'12 Miles Of Bad Road' (provisional)


In Earth Prime-Time Doof:

'That's My Bush!'

In Skitlandia:

'Chappelle's Show'

'Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson'


'Saturday Night Live'

'Frank TV'

'Rove Live'

'Tonight with Jay Leno'

'Late Night with Conan O'Brien'

In the Tooniverse:

'Family Guy'

'American Dad!'


'Li'l Bush'

among others.....

I came into this thinking that Timothy Bush might be the official portrayer of George W. Bush in the Hall, but it looks like Steve Bridges (second row, middle) will be getting that honor because he played the Commander-in-Chief on three of the shows from the main Toobworld.

That's my strategery, and I'm sticking to it.
