On Dan Harmon Addresses the Chevy Chase Spat

Harmon still sounds like a huge douche to me. Basically, this "apology" sounds like a "oh shit, what I thought was totally funny before has made ME look like a douchebag on the internet, so I better issue a totally insincere 'apology'" apology.

On Yes, Dear < Taxi: What Older Shows Would You Like to See on TV Again?

Here are several that I watched a lot as a kid (or teen, or young adult) that I think everyone needs to have seen: 1) All in the Family - weird that your article leads with a picture of Archie Bunker, but you don't mention the show 2) I Love Lucy - yes, Lucy was prominent in the recent "Best Sitcom Ever" tournament, but it's relatively early exit shows that today's viewer needs to catch up with this show. Just the "classic" episodes of "Lucy Does a Television Commercial," (vitameatvegamin!), "Job Switching" (eating the chocolates), "Lucy's Italian Movie" (stomping the grapes), and "Lucy is Enceinte" (Lucy tells Ricky she's pregnant) are four of the best TV episodes of all time 3) MASH - yes, it's a little lame at times, and not quite as "zany" funny as many other sitcoms, but it's still a good example of how comedy can often better examine the "bigger questions" than drama 4) The Muppet Show - I shouldn't have to explain to anyone why this belongs on this list 5) Cheers - sure, it's from the 80s, so it might be a little too new, but it is my personal favorite non-Simpsons sitcom of all time 6) The Dick Van Dyke Show - there would have been no "Mary Tyler Moore" show without Dick Van Dyke showing how funny Mary could be 7) The Carol Burnett Show - one of the funniest women in the history of comedy 8) The Bob Newhart Show and Newhart - Another underappreciated comedy giant. 9) Soap - stupid and ridiculous, but always fun 10) My Three Sons - certainly one of the weaker shows on this list, but still pretty good. 11) Sanford & Son - "I'm Coming Elizabeth!" There are probably several more, but I like these.

On Why Whitney is the Best New Network Sitcom of 2011-2012

It would be a real shame if NBC uses articles like this to justify picking up Whitney for a second season, particularly since NBC has indicated that Community might not come back next season if Whitney is picked up. If that happens, Jessie, you will PERSONALLY be responsible.

On The Final Four in the Best Sitcom Episode Ever Tournament is HERE

This is some bull$&*t! I think Community is funny to, but now way should it beat Lucy. I get that I Love Lucy is an old show, but honestly, it is probably the funniest series in TV history (well, maybe second funniest, behind the Simpsons).

On The Best Sitcom Episode Ever Tournament: Round One Results!

I love Community, but I honestly can't believe it beat "The Marine Biologist" (which, in my opinion, is one of the 4 or 5 best sitcom episodes of all time and certainly better than "The Contest"). Anyway, here are my predictions: Lucy Community (Remedial Chaos) Cheers Fawlty Towers Seinfeld (although I'll be voting for Friends) Simpsons (GO MARGE!) Community Arrested Development

On Dane Cook's Response to the Twitter Complaints About His Last Set

I know the following statement will surprise no one, but, Dane Cook is a huge douche nozzle.

On A Torrid Love Affair is Raging Between Conan and Ellie Kemper

Since Kemper's fiance is one of Conan's former writers, Conan is probably just claiming his "prima nocta" rights.
