The Operation Genoa arc in The Newsroom fascinating for how close it tracks its real-life inspiration. (WG)

    "Fergie has thrown herself three separate baby showers. Weird."

    In what way? That she stopped at three?

  • e jerry powell

    Good to sse that the Woz is still adorkable.

  • RilesSD

    The best cancelled-too-soon show since around the same time as Terriers is on Netflix too: "Chicago Code".

  • F'mal DeHyde

    Oh my god, someone else that actually watched the show! I loved Jennifer Beals character and that ending infuriated me. She went from a squeaky clean, high ranking police officer brimming over with integrity that was paranoid about her public image to... you know. What the hell?

  • rasputinreborn

    the Dlisted link goes to a Pajiba 404 page

  • Sara_Tonin00

    But...Michelle Obama made the single mother comment over a month ago, I thought. The brouhaha is over a follow up question about it?

  • Three_nineteen

    Despite my better judgement, I went and looked at the Celebitchy comments. I have to say, there were nice discussions about the uneven duties a lot of married couples have. There were a few comments about how "awful" Obama was to "compare herself to a single mother" (quotes because I don't believe that is what Obama did), but the replies to those comments were reasoned and respectful. And there were also some commenters who respectfully disagreed with what Obama said. I wish all comment threads looked like that. When you can count the assholish comments on one hand, in my book that's a win.

  • Bodhi

    That was an amazingly calm comment thread, considering how insane some of those folks get over Princess/Dutchess/whatever Kate

  • F'mal DeHyde

    Have you ever seen the Jennifer Aniston threads? Holy moly.

  • Bodhi

    Yes, they get INSANE. I used to post over there all the time, but lately I just lurk. It used to be fun, but now most of it is either dumb or just plain mean

  • Jezzer

    That's no fun. Someone should go over there and punch things up a bit.

  • Robert

    A follow up question to a misstatement she corrected immediately before even finishing her sentence, yes.

  • mrsdalgliesh

    "Lady Gaga and Perez Hilton are feuding, and I can’t bring myself to care about the outcome."

    The outcome? I can't bring myself to care about the feud. I can feel my neurons shriveling up in despair as I typ,firglmmbrt....

  • Wait, Ford wasn't asked to cameo in the new Star Wars?
