An American testifies against the Russian mob, forcing him and his family to enter the Witness Protection Program, move to New York City and … make a reality show about it! This is the premise of Adult Swim’s sleeper hit Delocated (midnight Thursdays, Cartoon Network).

Given Austin, Texas, reputation as the most hipstery part of the Lone Star state, you’d think they’d know better, but city officials still went to its citizens to find a new name for its Solid Waste Services Department, responsible for things like recycling and garbage collection.

The musical universe was in perfect order Thanksgiving week. Willie Nelson was busted on his tour bus for marijuana possession by U.S. Border Patrol in Texas.

Watching Joe Willie Namath wade through the Pittsburgh Steelers with the Lombardi Trophy right after Super Bowl XLIII brought back the true meaning of the Super Bowl even more powerfully than the game itself, which, considering the stakes, has to be considered one of the greatest football games of all time. In today's splintered popular culture, any production that puts Americans on the same page is already a remarkable show.
