You may like Russell Brand, but Brand won't be the next host of "The Tonight Show," that was decided about a month ago (spoiler alert, it's going to be Jimmy Fallon). But, we don't think Brand really ever even considered that he might be the next host of "Tonight." Brand does a different thing in a different way, even if this is a late night talk show and "Tonight" is a late night talk show. Why don't you not worry about that, why don't you just tune in tonight to this show's second season finale and see if you like the brand of material Brand offers up on "Brand X."

We like ourselves some Russell Brand. Some may find him distinctly weird, and while we do too, we truly like his spin on stuff. Brand seems to be a terribly smart fellow who likes to tilt his head before looking at the world around him. This series offers Brand the opportunity to not only tilt his head but tell us what he sees when he does so. There are guests too, so that's fun. The new season of "Brand X" starts up tonight and is expanding to be a full-hour rather than a mere 30 minutes. That means more head-tilted opinions and interviews.

There are certain people whose charisma we cannot deny. When we see them, we put down our remote and pay attention to what they're saying. Why exactly Russell Brand has that affect on us, we can't quite say, but he does. He has a certain way of putting things which we find not just amusing, but wise. Plus, you know, we have this thing for accents and Russell Brand certainly has an accent. Maybe that's why is way of looking at the world works for us. Whatever the case may be, after tonight we're going to miss "Brand X" until, fingers crossed, it returns for a new season.
