While the next episode of The Lowdown is being scrambled together at the last possible second, let’s rewind the clocks one year. The next show will be the annual year in review. So what better time to review the crews’ predictions for 2009 than when they wrap the year up? On this vintage episode, Steve, his cousin, and The Enge review Rock Band 2. Steve even tries his hand at playing a real guitar after playing the video game axe. In the news, the guys talk about the best-selling 2009 calender on Amazon and why New Year’s Resolutions are bad. Steve debuts his short-lived Money Matters segment. Entertainment features two singles and Jackie’s preview of the winter TV season. After all of that, they finally get to the year in review portion of the show with the top stories of 2008 and predictions for 2009. The night is capped off with the second annual Lowdown Awards show.
The Lowdown was on-air tonight with the second “Previously Enjoyed” episode of 2009. This episode originally aired on January 6, 2009. That was our first episode of 2009. On tonight’s show, Steve and The Enge review Rock Band 2. Then Steve and Jackie recap the best stories of 2008 while making ridiculous predictions for 2009. They cap off the night by announcing the winners of The Lowdown Awards including the Freedom of Speech Award. Expect a lot of stockbroker bashing.
