Music on TV - Week of 08.06.12: Tenacious D & Weird Al Yankovich

Tenacious D join forces with Weird Al Yankovic for IFC's surreal talk show Comedy Bang Bang, Friday August 10.
IFC's Comedy Bang Bang, a talk show born from the twisted mind of Scott Aukerman, celebrates its first season finale with an all-star comedy music team up of Weird Al Yankovic and Tenacious D. Throw CBB music man Reggie Watts into the mix, and you have a comedy music supergroup in the making.

Here's a sample of what ensued:

The Summer Olympics means there's very little else on TV to compete, so what else ya gonna do? Of course, if you're on Dish Network like me, it's just another reason to continue trying to find a good alternative (not having any luck with Comcast or DirecTV).
