Those who have cable or satellite television have access to classic shows on TVLand, American Life Television, Nick at Nite, or something else, but for those still using digital sets or converter boxes things are different. That is, until now, perhaps.

MeTV has been a Chicago staple for several years, providing viewers with endless repeats of shows like Leave It to Beaver, Bewitched, I Love Lucy, The Munsters, Sanford & Son, and more recently, Happy Days, The Nanny, and Scrubs. Its success led to multiple affiliates and a sister network, MeToo, which airs dramas like Perry Mason, Charlie’s Angels, The Man From UNCLE, and Gunsmoke. Now the company behind it is taking the brand nation-wide beginning January 2011.

Many different families have various traditions around this time of year, but probably few of them came from something PBS used to air about ten years ago. Those from the UK might already be familiar with the adventures of Mr. Bean, a guy who has very unusual ways of doing everyday things, but it is harder to come by in the US. So here, for your comedic pleasure, is some holiday hilariousness that is safe for all ages.

Chances are, your Thanksgiving feast wasn’t as difficult to prepare as Mr. Bean’s was! In this classic clip from the British TV show, part of which was later shamelessly copied on Friends, you’ll learn the reason why you should never wear a watch while cooking.

Synchronized interpretive dance anyone? The new Miles Crawford-directed video for “DNA”, off the self-titled debut releasing 22 February 2011 from indie rocker Darwin Deez, has plenty to offer. Conceptually, the central couple in the video each represent a strand in the metaphorical double-helix of love. They dance, swim together, roll in the grass, do everything you’d expect a happy, young urban couple to do. The true direction of the video, however, only becomes clear when listening to the lyrics. Given the song’s bounciness, you might rather just give yourself over to the beat. But then that wouldn’t make you that much different than the song’s protagonist.

So many different things happened in the world of music this year that instead of making a limited “best-of” list, it’s better to take a look at things one month at a time. Just as we previously highlighted January 2010’s happenings, here is a look at the next month in music history.
