TV Tonight: I Love the New Millennium

Apparently, VH1 is so smitten with the pop culture touchstones and trainwrecks of the past eight years, the network couldn't wait to talk about them. Tonight, VH1 debuts I Love the New Millennium, the latest in its series of I Love the [Insert Decade Here] specials — despite the fact that this decade is still far from over.

The odd timing is no problem for VH1's team of comedians and culture mavens, who will be turning their lovingly sarcastic eye on everything from the "Thong Song" to Big Mouth Billy Bass. I Love the New Millennium will showcase two years from the decade each night from tonight through Thursday, going all the way back — as the network put it — to "a time when Brad Pitt was happily married to Jennifer Aniston." VH1 has called on its typical I Love the . . . team, including comedians Michael Ian Black and Lonny Ross, to do the job, with an assist from a couple of dozen folks who have benefited (or suffered) from the whims of the new millennium firsthand: Shaggy, Kat Von D, even Jenna Von Oy!

It strikes me as a little soon for VH1 to be so reflective; I think some of the most absurd and memorable pop culture moments only get better with time, as we saw with I Love the '80s. Still, it's really never too soon for me to listen to VH1 personalities snark about trucker hats. Are there any particular culture milestones you hope make an appearance in this week's specials? And will you be watching? To check out a clip of a rant about Fear Factor, just

Yay I can't wait to watch, I love these specials! I was also wondering why they are doing it two years early, but remember that they usually do sequels to their specials, like I love the 80s part deux, I love the 80s 3D, I love the 70s part 2. I'm sure they will do the same thing with the "New Millenium." I can't wait to see Michael Ian Black!

I'm sure it will be funny, but its too soon. But they will probably make another one somewhere down the road so it's fine.

I think it's too soon (as were the 90s ones), but these shows are great mindless entertainment. I actually watched some of the 2000 episode this weekend.

I'm stoked. If VH1 did "I Love Watching Paint Dry" I would watch it. Michael Ian Black, Godfrey & Hal Sparks are my favorites!

I think it is too soon, but I still watch it when nothing else is on. You know it's all vh1 will play all summer.

How nostaligic can you be about events and trends that are still near and dear to your heart. I admit there is easy fodder like UGGs but really what more can be said until we have a different generation who can point out how ridiculous it was for us fear that airplanes were going to drop out of the sky when it hit midnight of 2000.
