On Catching Up with Bob's Burgers

Bob's Burgers averages nearly five times the number of viewers each week as Archer. How could you say Archer is "more popular"?

On Mel Gibson Axed From The Hangover 2 After Cast Complaints

Yeah, that argument holds absolutely no water. Mike Tyson is somehow more acceptable than Mel Gibson because he was totally up front about how he raped a girl and brutalized people? Anyways, that's not even the case. Tyson has always made convoluted arguments defending himself and saying he's misunderstood.

On Mel Gibson Axed From The Hangover 2 After Cast Complaints

Mike Tyson has been convicted of raping a teenager, several counts of drug possession, several DUI's, he's beaten up paparazzi, he's no stranger to making outrageously offensive comments and once bit a dude's ear off. His wrap sheet is arguably much worse than Mel Gibson's, but nobody protested his cameo in The Hangover. Not defending Mel Gibson in any way, I'm just curious why there wasn't outrage over Tyson's appearance...

On Why We Relate to Louis CK

I'm a fan of Louis CK and love his show. I think he's great. But this part of your post rings untrue: "And he earned that trust not by doing what most other ambitious comedians do, which is hang out in NY or LA, pitching networks and studios while performing to a comedy-savvy crowd at a hip club and making web videos." Louis has a Twitter account, he posts tons of videos to YouTube, he's developed shows, had one on the air before this, he's done guest work on sitcoms, made late night appearances... he's done the famous comedian thing. But that's what makes Louis all the more remarkable, that he's gone through the machine and came out the other end with an amazing ability to make exactly what he wants. He's still a comedy hero, just not the fuck-the-Hollywood-system hero you make him out to be.
