I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR "72 LEAST METAL MOMENTS:" The Times doesn't have much good to say about the new play "The Name Of This Play Is Talking Heads," which chronicles a young pundit's discovery that not all is good, right, and legitimate in the world of list shows on VH1 featuring snarky commentary, and reveals that (horrors!) the allegedly "unscripted" pundit we find on quality shows like "100 Greatest One-Hit Wonders" is not as unscripted as we might want to believe. That said, the Times review does reveal a few of the actual funny moments, including the titles of the "list shows" featured in the play--"100 Most Rockatrocious Moments" and "The 22 Greatest Jews In Hip-Hop." (Ad-Rock had better be number one!) Your suggestions for wholly unneeded list shows are invited.
