Burning Love season 3 (The parody of "The Bachelor", "The Bachelorette", and "The Bachelor Pad"), is called
Burning Down the House. Although these shows don't need parodies as they are parodies of themselves

Wow--hard to believe I started this thread wayyy back on the old board, so many years ago and she's still going strong!!

Anyways, if you live in Las Vegas you can hear Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club regularly as backdrop music. "Wild Wild Life" today, "Genius of Love" all the time.

All of the above, with particular attention given to the casino hotels. I was down on Fremont Street a few days ago when I heard "Wild, Wild Life" playing from the speakers overhead. Cool. Mostly later "Greatest Hits" stuff. I was over at City Center near the lobby of Aria when I heard "Genius of Love" playing. That always puts a smile on my face.

Went to the cafe at Red Rock Station last night. Got out of my car only to find "Genius of Love" playing lovingly over the speakers!

Talking Heads are mentioned in the number 6 spot in this interesting article.
