    So what's up with people that don't like The Californians sketch on SNL?

    are there people that just laugh nonstop at that out where you are? i can appreciate it for maybe 30 seconds, but whether it's spot on or not i have no idea. it gets old quick to someone who doesn't spend time in california or watch cali-centric dramas on tv.

    Thanks for posting the Jeopardy teen tourney finale. I missed it but was too lazy to track it down online. Three-minute summary is perfect.

    i do. it's a nice exaggerated approximation and i don't watch soaps either. i'm a huge SNL fan these days and a big Fred Armisen/Bill Hader fan so that helps. Kristen Wiig was amazing on The Californians too. it's what SNL does best, to me. great schtick, absurdist, improvisational enough to bring out the best in the actors, always teetering on collapse.

    kid winning on Teen Jeopardy was pretty epic.

    Thank God that HGTV can still put attractive couples on their programming rather than these hairy, overweight gay dudes that have been dominating programming for the past month.

    I kind of only barely understand what happens in these sketches but it is fun hearing Armisen say full sentences in a single syllable.

    Last night I watched a grown man piss himself in front of Zooey Deschanel in hopes of getting a parking space. People take driving seriously in your state apparently.

    http://screen.yahoo.com/burning-love/

    Season 2 of Yahoo's web only series that debuts a new 10-15 minute episodes every Thursday and Friday.

    It is a parody of The Bachelor featuring every famous comedian you have ever known. Season 1 featured Ken Marino of Party Down fame as The Bachelor, Season 2 features June Diane Raphael from NTSF::SD:SUV:: and being marreid to Paul Scheer fame as The Bachelorette.

    It is great and all you have to do is stream it.

    I've never heard of any of those people, or watched any of those shows. Looking forward to tonight's new episodes of Girls and the Walking Dead, though!

    One woman can make you fly like an eagle, another can give you the strength of a lion, but only one in the Cycle Of Life can fill your heart with wonder and the wisdom that you have known a singular joy.

    I suppose that would be the most logical conclusion to draw. My apologies.

    Deputy Hawk is probably right, though. Those Native American types know their stuff.

    Just saw a combination ad for Walter E. Smithe furniture and pro wrestling, featuring Billy Corgan. I don't even know what's real anymore.

    That is indeed one of the more mind-blowing commercials I have seen.

    Between that and Billy's Highland Park tea bistro, the man seems to be really doing his part as a local hero.

    The relationship between Hersch and Rick in Walking Dead is incredibly gripping.

    Show is phenomenal.

    The Walking Dead delivered one of the best episodes of the series last night. The guy that plays Morgan went next level in his performance. It was probably too good of a performance by TWD standards.
