A prominent British sketch performer once told me that "Americans can't do sketch comedy." Meanwhile, the British character comic Kevin Eldon once said: "If I see comedy which I consider, in my very judgmental little head, to be lazy or weak it actually offends me." It's these quotes that spring to mind when faced with the lack of charm and quality in this American duo's live show.

It's proving a bumper season for returning art-rock bands. Radiohead recently delivered their first new album in three and a bit years; The Strokes will soon end a five-year hiatus with a new album; now Brooklyn's finest, TV on the Radio, emerge on the horizon with their fourth album, Nine Types of Light, which arrives on 14 April. Last week Seattle radio station 107.7 The End premiered the first song to emerge from the album at ind.pn/erPcrr. The song is called "Will Do", and it's a laid-back effort that slowly rumbles along. It feels like a cousin to the show-stopping ballad "Family Tree", from their 2008 LP Dear Science. Though not as dramatic/epic as that one, with it's chiming sounds and soulful vocals, it's quietly affecting and whets the appetite nicely for the rest of the album.

So they kept the champagne on ice for a week. We will just have to wait a few more hours until the man they rather misleadingly described as a "cricket legend" struts his stuff in Dancing on Ice (ITV1, Sunday). The anticipation is agonising as we wait for Dominic Cork to pop out.
