The Eight-Day Week
We were a little put out after watching the pilot for NBC’s “hit new show(tm)” Smash and finding out that not once in the entire first episode did Anjelica Huston throw a glass of fluid in someone’s face.
The previews for the show had lied to us, because we distinctly remember an entire commercial dedicated to what looked like a super-cut of her character, Broadway producer Eileen Rand, splashing people (usually her ex-husband) like she was on a really classy version of Punk’d. Luckily, the subsequent two episodes have had a lot more pizzazz. Look at that guy’s face! Every time! Womp-womp!
Sure, going out on a winter Sunday is a drag—but who wants to watch 60 Minutes when Rachel Dratch is saluting the writer of Hugo?

Just when we thought Conan was getting all the attention again, late night host Jimmy Fallon brings the camera back to himself with a real estate curveball.
In 2006, the SNL-alum and Brooklyn native, who is married to producer Nancy Juvonen, listed two seventh-floor apartments at the oldest New York City co-op Read More
Late Night host Jimmy Fallon has been sued by an underling who was demoted and eventually fired, he alleges, because of his gender. This discrimination charge is surprising, not just because these lawsuits tend to go the other way around, but because Fallon is by far the frattiest of the late night hosts.

In Case You Missed It
Jon Stewart sure picked the wrong week to take a vacation! The Daily Show host returned to the airwaves last night armed with week-old jokes about health care reform, which would have been a problem if they weren’t so funny. Particularly of note is the debate that happens between Mr. Stewart and Daily Show correspondents Read More
