"Community" Lives!

Happy Friday, tellyphiles. This is a victory for meta enthusiasts everywhere.

From Flavorwire:
 You can add Community to the list of renewals for the network. According to Deadline, the class of Greendale Community College will be heading back to school for another semester. NBC renewed the show for a fourth season and 13 episodes. 
Let's hope this means Dan Harmon and company will use this opportunity to recover from a shaky third season.

This is the Best Video Clip You'll See All Day - Prince Charles, Weatherman

HRH makes it rain or at least forecasts that it will.

I love the first few seconds when he looks down at the weatherman remote in his hand as though a) he's not quite sure how it got there and b) he's amused by the rudimentary tools of commoners.

Also, "Who the hell wrote this script?!" Instant classic.

Your Tellyphile Pic of the Day: Jon Hamm Giving LMFAO The Don Draper Treatment

He's looking at Jon Hamm with such unmitigated glee I almost feel sorry for Mr. LMFAO aka Silverspoon Gordy. Almost. It was then that I spied his bedazzled fannypack and thought much like Jon seems to be, "Fuck this guy."

President Obama Finally Endorses Gay Marriage, Is Considering Getting One of Those Newfangled iPhone Machines

ABC News rightly treats their huge get as breaking news. Welcome to the right side of history, Mr. President.

My blogger idol Andrew Sullivan is overcome:
I do not know how orchestrated this was; and I do not know how calculated it is. What I know is that, absorbing the news, I was uncharacteristically at a loss for words for a while, didn't know what to write, and, like many Dish readers, there are tears in my eyes. 
...Today Obama did more than make a logical step. He let go of fear. He is clearly prepared to let the political chips fall as they may. That's why we elected him. That's the change we believed in.

Whatchu Talkin' Bout, Willis?: Anderson Cooper Talks Wendy Williams on "Watch What Happens Live"

"That was the first night I met Wendy Williams. I never met her before and I found her suddenly in my home. It's a little startling." - Anderson Cooper on Watch What Happens Live last night.
A party with both Wendy and Anderson in attendance? I think I've found my inner circle.

I abandoned Gossip Girl ages ago but I'll always love looking at pictures of Ed Westwick because within him lives Chuck Bass. I love a man with perpetually haughty nostrils. Don't you?

"GMA" Beats "Today" Again, Morning Shows Now Securely in the Hands of the Lowest Common Denominator

I love to see an underdog triumph, but when said underdog is less like Brain from Inspector Gadget and more like Scooby Dum...not so much.
