Pop culture nerds, it’s time to rejoice. VH1 is bringing back the beloved “Best Week Ever” series, after a three year hiatus. The show, which will air in January, was a weekly clip show that took a look at all of the ridiculous moments in pop culture, and has long been missed by geeks like myself. And if you’re like me, you are probably doing some sort of happy dance in your living room over the fact that it’s returning.
The revival comes as VH1 prepares for a Friday comedy block to be aired this January. In addition to “Best Week Ever”, VH1 will also introduce audiences to “Miss You Much”, hosted by Catherine Reitman, in which she plays catch-up with television and pop stars from the past twenty years.
In addition to the comedy block, VH1 has also ordered a series entitled “Grand River Singers Project”, which will follow a young adult show choir in Wisconsin called the Grand River Singers. Set to air next summer, the show sounds a bit like a more adult version of “Glee” minus the drama of “Smash”. The network will also release a show called “Black Ink”, which will follow an African-American owner of a tattoo shop in Harlem, NY.
In the meantime, you can also look forward to a documentary called Something from Nothing: The Art of Rap, which will air on September 13. Directed by rapper-actor Ice-T, the documentary will focus on the careers of Eminem, Dr. Dre, and Kanye West, among many other rappers, and their contributions to the genre. (Check out Ice's visit to the YH Studio to dish on the project!)
Which VH1 show are you most excited to see?
