Look, I'm not crazy, okay? I don't think Freemasons run the country, nor do I need a tinfoil hat to keep the CIA from reading my thoughts. But SOMEONE at NBC has OBVIOUSLY been spying on my behavior at recent game nights. First, in September, the network dramatized an extreme sore-losing situation at a Model UN on "Community." And then, last night, a Braverman family Game Night is marred by a child's inability to give a clue during Charades.Read More »from ‘Parenthood’ Portrays Both Possible Causes of Game Night Ruination: The Rules Stickler and the Sore Loser

Matt Damon, who probably put plenty of pennies in the Water.org swear jar, is raising awareness of the fact that poor sanitation kills millions of children every year in these short commercials for the "Talk Sh*t on Toilet Day" campaign. I think the idea behind this is Matt Damon is allowed to swear, because Matt Damon is perfect.Read More »from Matt Damon Swears For a Good Cause: World Toilet Day

Last night, Roger Craig won the 2011 "Jeopardy!" Tournament of Champions. He was helped along on Monday night, when he found two Daily Doubles in a row and made them "true Daily Doubles" by risking everything both times, a feat Best Week Ever calls "The ballsiest 60 seconds of 'Jeopardy'-playing in history." It is pretty impressive! I would not have gotten (at least) the first question right:

Jeff is DISGUSTED. (CBS)I think I know why we don't often see or read interviews with people who work behind the scenes at reality shows. It's not because knowing how the shows are produced would make us realize they are fake and therefore render us unable to enjoy them any longer. It's because if we had access to the people who know ALL the dirt, we would stop caring about the people on camera and their fashion lines or tattoos or ghostwritten novels. FOR EXAMPLE: An anonymous camera operator who's worked on such reality shows as "The Amazing Race," "The Apprentice," and (most germanely) "Survivor" volunteered for an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit, in the course of which he or she offered up some decent gossip about the production on "Survivor," like the debauchery that goes on at the crew's camp and how camera operators sometimes just pretend to be filming when they aren't.Read More »from Someone on ‘Survivor’ Soiled His or Her Pants During a Challenge
See, these guys are hanging in! (NBC)If all you had to go on was the passion of fans on the internet, you might be forgiven for thinking that "Community" is the most popular sitcom — if not the most popular series — on all of television. In fact, that is not the case. Among NBC's Thursday-night sitcoms, "Community" is the lowest-rated. So while yesterday's news that the show is about to go on hiatus is disappointing, it can't have possibly come as a surprise to its fans, can it? I'm honestly asking. Because I wasn't surprised, and yet the rest of the internet seems to be reacting as though this is a world-shaking shock. And with a petition popping up (and a poorly fact-checked one at that: Show's not canceled, guys) and a movement underway with a name that aligns itself with the protesters of Occupy Wall Street, I feel I must call for peace and restraint before this nonsense gets any further out of hand.Read More »from What If We All Calmed Down about ‘Community’?
