Comedian and Jordan, Jesse, Go! host Jordan Morris gives his top five for December.
JESSE THORN: Once a month my colleague Jordan Morris steps into the recording booth to tell us what's up, what's down, what's hot, what's not, what's worthwhile and what's worth tossing in God's United States. Here he is with Jordan Ranks America.
In case you've been living UNDER A ROCK, I've been hosting an IFC show called The Grid, and Jordan has been a regular contributor. Above, one of his great segments, on a very sad product called Gamer Grub.
Watch! Thursdays, 7:45 PM Eastern / 4:45 Pacific.
As some might know, I've been hosting the show "The Grid," which airs Thursdays at 7:45 Eastern / 4:45 Pacific on IFC. Above, you can check out an interview I did there with Julian Nitzberg, the director of "The Wild & Wonderful Whites of West Virginia," a terrifying documentary about a completely out-of-control family of party animal grifters. That's also kind of amusing. And amazing. And definitely tough to describe.
Below: Jordan's first piece for the show. He covered the "Boobs & Blood Film Festival," which celebrates exploitation movies of all kinds.

JORDAN RANKS AMERICA
5. Netflix on Demand
The future of entertainment is here! This innovative service puts thousands of classic movies at your fingertips, from that one where Debbie Gibson fights a CGI shark to that one from the 80s that had a ton of nudity.
4. Combination Shampoo & Body Wash
Ask any guy's guy and he'll tell you: having more than one bottle in the shower is a real "pain in the rear." Squirt this strong-smelling glop all over everything and simplify your life!
3. Corn Chowder
Since its invention, during the Civil War, this hearty soup has always taken a back seat to clam chowder. Now, thanks to an aggressive marketing campaign, it's become a "hot topic" amongst American teens.
2. "Hold on to your butts!"
First uttered by Samuel L. Jackson in Jurassic Park, this classic catchphrase is perfect for letting everyone know it's time to get ready... for something to happen!
1. The Cat
She's cute, she's fluffy, and sometimes... she'll jump into a shopping bag! Kudos to you, The Cat. You turn every day into an adorable vacation!
