  1. I love when LIzz is on. My beagle sometimes eats poop too. Perhaps I should spice it up with hot sauce as well, that seems like sound advice.

    I thought the choice of Ricky Gervais for host of the Golden Globe was odd too. He has made career out of the good will from the British version of the Office. He was supposedly a “commercial” and “popular” choice who was going to attract US viewers and increase ratings. I don’t understand this choice thought, as he has NEVER had a US hit. Neither of the films he lead were big hits, and I would bet that most people in Middle America don’t even really know who he is or why he’s famous.

    He did have a couple good digs, but he was largely a snooze.

    Re Conan v Leno. I can’t agree with you. It is possible to care about Health Care Reform, Help Haiti and still have a forceful opinion about the Late Night brouhaha. And just because they are both rich doesn’t mean they should both just hang it up and go fuck themselves.

    I, like yourselves consume a massive amount of pop culture and still remain informed and engaged in a variety of local, national, and global issues and participate in a variety of gay and human rights activism, and manage to work full time and manage all of my various friendships and relationships. And somehow I have also found time to have a passionate opinion on the late night wars. They resonate with me because I love TV and the NBC decision to abandon 5 hours of quality scripted television (that hour was mostly devoted to dramas) and give it over to televisions most overrated and boring comedian had an impact on something I enjoy a great deal. I also think Conan is a funnier comedian than Jay. Add to that a lot of drama about corporate control and false promises and contractual obligations and a wide variety of other deceptions and betrayals and it’s no wonder the fight has caught the popular imagination.

    I think people are complex enough to be able to manage a variety of interests and issues.

    Great show guys! Love hearing from the super funny Lizz. The bit about the hot sauce on the dog turds was hilarious. The insight into how reality stars are effecting our real celebrities was right on. I am so tired of ugly stupid people on TV. I want glamour! That is why I turn to you boys.

    PS I am now following Laura Ingalls on Twitter. Thank you Lizz!
