2 2 Luke Bryan
3 7 Justin Timberlake
4 - One Direction
5 - Baylor Football
6 4 George Strait
7 - Miley Cyrus
8 - US Grand Prix
9 - Billy Joel
10 - NFR

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.

Racing into History – The Circuit of the Americas

The Circuit of the Americas is like nothing we’ve ever seen in North America, so here’s an infographic to give you some info on the track and everything that comes along with it. Located southeast of Austin, the track will be used for much more than just the U.S. Grand Prix — though that will be the main event. Want to go to the race? It’s not too late. See the USGP Race with TicketCity!

The Week in TicketCity Search – Avoiding The Red Flag

1 2 US Grand Prix
2 10 Taylor Swift
3 1 One Direction
4 - Aerosmith
5 5 SEC Championship
6 - Carrie Underwood
7 - Cotton Bowl
8 4 Maroon 5
9 6 Miami Heat
10 7 BCS Bowl

So many racing puns, so little time… Suffice to say, the US Grand Prix takes the win this week, in what remained a relatively close battle with a very resurgent Taylor Swift. She had dropped to #10 last week after a strong debut, but leaps right back to the #2 spot this week. That leaves former champ 1D two spots out of contention. I wouldn’t worry about the boys, I suspect they’ll be reclaiming the crown soon enough.

Kinda-sorta-not-really out of nowhere, Aerosmith enters the countdown at #4. They’re playing the Frank Erwin Center tonight, so this bit of fortune isn’t really a surprise at all.

In spite of all the other changes in the top 5, the SEC championship holds steady at #5. The regular season of college football is drawing to a close, and soon the bowl frenzy will be upon us. This week the Cotton Bowl makes an appearance, while the BCS slips from #7 to #10. Get a jump on your friends and check out our Bowl game listings. Also enter this year’s TicketCity Bowl Contest for a chance for you and your three best friends to see your team play a bowl game!

Carrie Underwood debuts at #6 to start off the bottom five. She’s on the Blown Away Tour, covering North America between now and Summer 2013. She’s not slacking, the tour will rack up over 100 dates, making it a safe bet for one of the top tours of 2012 and 2013.

The Week in TicketCity Search – One Direction to the Finish Line

2 6 US Grand Prix
3 3 Justin Bieber
4 6 Maroon 5
5 - SEC Championship
6 9 Miami Heat
7 - BCS Bowl
8 7 George Strait
9 - NY Knicks
10 5 Taylor Swift

Despite all that horsepower the F1 racers couldn’t quite outrun One Direction. They got close, though. With the actual race next weekend, it will be interesting to see if the USGP can pull out a win against the fleet English boy band. The esteemed Mr. Bieber is left to spin his wheels in the #3 spot this week, and Maroon 5 pulls ahead, gaining two places to end up at #4. How are the racing puns working out for you?

With a little less than a month before the big bowl announcement weekend, we’ve got some eager post-season college football fans looking for the SEC Championship and the BCS Bowl. That action will only heat up in the next few weeks.

The NBA is looking a little stronger this week. The Heat climb up a few spots to open up the bottom five. Joining them this week are the Knicks, who debut at #9 on the countdown this season.

Both George Strait and Taylor Swift tumble this week, with Swift suffering the biggest fall. She lands at #10. Bit of a lull between now and when her Red concert tour officially starts next year. Fans in LA will have a chance to see her at the KIIS Jingle Ball on December 1st, though. You can check out all the holiday Jingle Ball concerts here.

5 - Taylor Swift
6 5 US Grand Prix
7 10 George Strait
8 - Dallas Cowboys

10 2 Jason Aldean

After all those months, Mr. Bieber regains the crown only to lose it a week later. It falls to none other than arch boy band rival, One Direction. An unexpected reversal of fortune, especially considering 1D still hasn’t started up their 2013 Tour. Spoiler Alert: it starts in 2013. Maroon 5 enjoys some good fortune of their own, riding the buzz of their tour announcement to the #2 spot.

Fresh off her own tour announcement is Taylor Swift. The Red Tour starts up next spring and rolls right on through summer. It features England’s newest folk-pop sensation, Ed Sheeran, as the opening act. Major buzz on this tour propels Swift to the #5 spot this week, and probably higher next week.

The USGP starts off the bottom five, dropping one spot, followed by George Strait, who turns around last week’s dive and climbs back to the #7 spot. Late season Cowboys fans are putting in some effort, bringing the team back to the #8 slot.

The Heat show up to remind us the NBA season has begun. After clenching the title last year, they’ve got momentum going into this season and are favorites to put another one on the mantle. There’s a lot of basketball between them and the Finals, though, and we’ve got tickets to almost all of it.
