…but slightly smoother than Dice Clay in “Hitz”.

Coming to CBS tomorrow night, the premiere of “Love Monkey”. Because a) the public can’t get enough of male protagonists “who can’t seem to commit” and b) enough time has elapsed for a loose, less idiosyncratic version of “High Fidelity” to be foisted upon those who haven’t seen the movie (which, Drag City music supe supremacy aside, wasn’t very good).

All of that said, sidekick status for Jason Priestly will no doubt result in a passing mention from Bill Simmons. With any luck, I have now saved you the trouble of watching the program and provided some background for one of Bill’s more cryptic cultural references.

Don’t thank me now. Thank me when the show is recast with Joe Gaer in the title role and mayoral candidate Christopher X. Brodeur as his stalker.
