TV Trailer: vh1’s ‘Off Pitch’
Tumblr Fans, this is the new VH1 show we’ve been eagerly waiting to show you for MONTHS. Off Pitch, a look at a real-life midwestern glee club, premieres Wednesday, April 17 at 10 pm on VH1. Theater kids and gleeks, this one is for you.

This is deeply upsetting. The Internet, and pop culture in general, are losing a wonderful brand and distinct editorial voice. It’s going to be sorely missed.
After this week, BWE.tv will no longer be updated, and VH1′s digital pop culture coverage will be rolled into VH1 Celebrity, VH1 Music, and the VH1 Blog. We’ll be spending this week doing a series of BWE wrap-up lists and blasting “I Will Remember You” and “End Of The Road” simultaneously on a loop, and Friday, June 15th be our last day of new content.
If you’re wondering why this is happening, long story short, the show Best Week Ever went off the air more than three years ago. We attempted to re-pitch BWE.tv to VH1 as a type of Wives, but it didn’t take, so I’m afraid this is officially goodbye.

What could go wrong?
All next week Vh1 will be counting down their list of the 100 greatest songs from the ’00s, hosted by Pete Wentz. Click through to skip the 5 hour affair and read the complete list.
Did they make the right decisions? Any noticeable omissions?
Stellar bit of interactive marketing from Vh1. Almost seems like a no-brainer.

Well folks, it’s time to call it a summer. After 14 weeks of tracking how a group of over 70 songs performed on the Billboard, iTunes, YouTube, Last.fm, and VH1 Top 20 Countdown charts, Katy Perry’s “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” took home the prize for the 2011 Song Of The Summer. We were able to get Katy to accept the prize on video, the results of which you can see above.
Thanks to everyone who commented and gave feedback along the way this summer; a special shout-out goes to my man Alex over at Pop Culture Brain for helping spread the word on the Tumblrs! Here’s the Top 5 songs, but you can also peep the full list on the VH1 Blog:
1) Katy Perry, “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)”
2) Adele, “Rolling In The Deep”
3) LMFAO, “Party Rock Anthem”
4) Bruno Mars, “The Lazy Song”
5) Pitbull featuring Ne-Yo, Afrojack and Nayer, “Give Me Everything”

Well, I’ve gotten some praise AND taken some heat for using
advanced calculusthird-grade math to take the mystery out of the Song Of The Summer race. Now’s your chance to vote on what YOU thought it was.
We were able to persuade a very special guest to reveal our winner on Tuesday, but until then, vote until your heart’s content!
How dare you try to put mathematics to my pop music!
