While the top 2 did not change, there was quite a shuffle below them. Drake remains in a comfortable first place, while Luke Bryan spends a second week in second. JT performs some sort of smooth dance move to jump from seventh and land in third place.

Which brings us to fourth place, and the return of the former countdown champs, One Direction. Not entirely sure why this has happened, and Google News it not illuminating on the subject. They’re in the states for some TV appearances over Thanksgiving week, ahead of a bit of a dry spell between then and a new international tour starting in spring 2014. You guys know you don’t need tickets to a “Global Live Stream”, right?

Baylor football rounds out the top five. The Bears play Texas Tech this weekend up in Arlington at the Cowboy’s home, AT&T Stadium. They’ll be closing the season December 7th against the Longhorns, playing the last game at Floyd Casey Stadium. We’ve got a bit of a shindig before the game if you’re interested in some quality tailgating. Check it out here.

Miley Cyrus drops by as tickets for her Bangerz Tour go on sale. The US Grand Prix finally visits the countdown as well, just in time, as the races are this weekend. There’s still tickets available and you can pick up some of them right here in Austin at our offices.

Well, I’ve posted 1D’s videos before so to switch things up a bit, here’s a pretty solid review of the band’s latest single, “The Story of My Life,” and vegetables.

More survivors this week, and a small shuffle at the top. George Strait’s dream of a long stay in first place ended a bit early. He does end up at a very respectable #3, giving up the top spot to Drake, who returned only last week. The Cowboys also return. Their choppy run this year on the countdown is certainly different from previous years, though overall I believe they’ve been on the countdown more thanks to it.

Pearl Jam climbs to #4 and Kanye returns to the #5 spot. Bad news for Kanye fans, though, as he’s had to postpone some tour dates as the 60-foot circular LED screen used in the show was damaged in a highway accident while on the way to the Vancouver show. Anyone who thinks you can perform without a custom-made 60-foot circular LED screen simply doesn’t have the music in their, like, soul, man.

The 49ers’ solid run continues. While they’ve not really reached the top, they’ve been on the countdown for weeks now. The Heat return to remind us the NBA’s 2013-14 season is officially underway.

The National Finals Rodeo enters at #8 this week. The ten-day extravaganza of the best rodeo has to offer starts up December 5th at its usual home, The Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas. I probably made the “When you think Las Vegas, rodeo is the first thing that comes to mind” joke every year at this point, so I’ll skip it this year.

Process of elimination suggests we’re going with Pearl Jam today. Their latest video and single is “Sirens.” The song holds up, but the video has a whiff of “not-trying” about it.
