What to Watch During the Writers Strike: The Twenty Funniest Web Videos of 2007, and More!


So, fall TV is a bust and, thanks to the writers strike, it's only going to get worse — networks are supposed to start running out of new episodes this week. Sadly, this season of Heroes will probably not be much better in reruns. But you know what is better the second time around? Planet Unicorn, Dramatic Chipmunk, and pretty much any of the things on New York's list of the Twenty (Intentionally) Funniest Web Videos of 2007, in this week's issue. Enjoy Carlos Santana's off-key guitar soloing above (he's No. 14!), then click here to watch nineteen other shorts that we promise are better than anything on this fall's prime-time schedule (save for Kid Nation and Cavemen). And while you're at it, check out the year's Top-Five Art Videos, Joe Swanberg's dirty Internet show, Young American Bodies (featuring real live nudity!), and 100 classic New York videos. You may never watch real TV again!
