You ever notice "Weird Al" writes a lot of songs about TV?
Lawrance M. Bernabo | The Zenith City, Duluth, Minnesota | 07/05/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"If the choice is between a "Weird Al" Yankovic collection such as "The TV Album" or a regular album, then I would almost always affirm my preference for the former. This is especially true since "The TV Album" brings together some of the best satirical songs from the less than stellar early Yankovic albums from the 1980s. Consequently, with this album you pick up "Ricky," which channels "I Love Lucy" by way of Toni Basil's "Micky," the on-point "I Lost on Jeopardy," and the brilliant song "The Brady Bunch," which even manages to work in the lyrics from the show's theme song into a version of "The Safety Dance." "Money for Nothing/Beverly Hillbillies" and "UHF" are the other most recognizable tracks. "The TV Album" is a set below "The Food Album," but then most psychological critics have already established the central importance of food in the work of "Weird Al" Yankovic (the message behind television's medium if you want to invoke Marshall McLuhan). For those who like their "Weird Al" served up from a thematic perspective this saves you the trouble from putting it together yourself."
An above-average compilation

"Weird Al likes TV. Or does he? YES! This is a great cd. All of Weird Al's songs about TV, being good or bad, are on this cd. The best one is "I Can't Watch This," a parody of MC Hammer's "U Can't Touch This". His other TV songs are funny, too. He knows how to write songs and parodies, making for the funniest artist in the music business. This is a good one, recommended to any TV addict, or anyone for that matter."
A lot of fun

"'Weird' Al, is indeed weird, zany, wacky and a lot of fun. His parodies are such fun, and sometimes a lot better than the originals. This album collects songs from various of his albums, songs that have to do with television shows and themes. Includes 4 songs written by Al and 7 parodies, this album is sure to put a smile on your face. Recommended!"
