When Your Boss Plunders Your Facebook Page

and her name is Kathy Griffin.

"So walk me through have a fake band that's never played live called Space Cops and you write autotuned electronic music to lines from Terminator movies?"

"Mad Men's" Vincent Kartheiser: A Really Creepy Dude Who Should Stay Inside

I may be developing another one of my Weird But True Crushes. Distinguished members of this body include pre-Angie Billy Bob Thornton, Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Saving Private Ryan-era Barry Pepper. Is that judgement in your eye, friend, or just disappointment?

NY Times Outs "Girls" Password Viewers, Ruins a Good Thing

Brian Stelter blows up everybody's spot :
Of course HBO Go is intended only for HBO’s cable and satellite subscribers; the company depends on its existing deals with cable and satellite providers and has repeatedly rebuffed suggestions to let people pay for HBO Go on its own. But as online pleas for help prove — “Can someone give me their HBO Go password?” read one such Twitter message on Tuesday — there are workarounds.     

The Night the Wig Fell (cont'd): Zolciak Wig Reveal Reax

Pic of what Kim's real hair looks like plus reaction from the masses posted safely after the jump so as not to render your DVR completely useless, though if you're using it to record Tardy  that may already be up for debate.:

Whatchu Talkin Bout Willis: When Don Kissed Peggy's Hand Edition

That scene was a really, really tough scene to film. They didn’t tell me they were going to do this but Phil told Jon to hold on to my hand and not let it go. And then he did and I really sort of lost it… and I will say that every single one of those tears was actually absolutely real. - Elisabeth Moss giving an inside perspective of the most gutwrenching moment on television this season since Lexie bit it.

Do You Like the Reptile House?

This is how Chris Matthews chose to conclude his interview with Newt Gingrich. Snakes figure prominently in what follows.

The entire interview is here but this was the part I happened upon and for a moment I tried to muster some righteous anger that had to do with Matthews' ridiculousness and the problem with cable news, but only amusement came as I watched Chris doggedly grilling a man who chooses to call himself Newt about his appreciation for animals as if national security depended on it.

Bottom line, there is a lesson to be learned here, boys and girls and it isn't that pythons do not in fact eat cows whole (thanks, Newt).  It is simply this--Chris Matthews will never disappoint you.

The Night the Wig Fell

You won't want to be tardy for this. We are mere minutes away from Atlanta Housewife Kim Zolciak's real hair reveal. The notoriously bewigged reality star will finally show what lies beneath tonight on her Don't Be Tardy for the Wedding spinoff.

The moment--let's be real--that we've all been suffering through this series for will air at 9:30pm EST on Bravo, your reality TV crackdealer.

In the meantime, here's a link to a lovely gallery of Kim's wig evolution.

Armed with Tiny Amps: More Wilco!

Expanding on a theme...

Here are Tweedy and company performing a four-song set for NPR's Tiny Desk Concert Series which features artists filmed live making beautiful music at the desk of All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen. There's something pretty magical about all of the performances in this series. It's one of the best things I've stumbled upon which is why I'm writing about it here even though it isn't television related. Occasional rambles off the chosen path are allowed, right? Especially when they sound this good.

This Is Not a Joke So Please Stop Smiling - If You've Only Watched That Peggy and Don Scene Once...

Watch it again and embrace the heartbreak:

I thought about this scene throughout the day and each time I did Jeff Tweedy's beautifully broken voice singing "This is not a joke so please stop smiling" was the soundtrack.
