Good news: in the past eight years, popular culture icons have made such a mockery of themselves that VH1 couldn’t wait for the decade to finish before making fun of them in a week-long miniseries! Tonight at 9 marks the start of [I Love the New Millennium], a year-by-year look at the nation’s worst trends, celebrities and events (better described as a ton of episodes of Best Week Ever lumped into one).


No one is safe from the commentary of Michael Ian Black and Co., particularly those who schlep around rest stops barefoot or wax poetic on being “trapped in the closet”. Also look forward to two terms’ worth of Dubyah quotes, among them gems such as “Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.” Here, here!


Hindsight’s 20/20, which is what makes it so easy to laugh at parachute pants on I Love the 80s. It might be considerably harder to laugh in similar fashion at Uggs in I Love the New Millennium if you yourself are still donning said faux-fur boots—so take them off beforehand.


Is commentary on the first-generation iPod funny yet? Probably not. Has it been too long since anyone pointed and laughed at Tom Cruise? Absolutely. Tune in all week—or whenever, really; the reruns will be on until 2015—to find out the hard way whether it’s too soon to make Anna Nicole Smith jokes again.
