There has been an unbelievable amount of great TV news today. We’ve already covered the return of “Community” and the now official “Party Down” movie, as well as the “Eastbound & Down” Season 3 trailer, but there’s also been the announcements that “Mad Men” will return on March 25th (!), and that my favorite comedy-nerd podcast, Comedy Bang Bang, will be turned into a TV show for IFC. All of these things are important, and they’re really exciting given the barren wasteland of crappy reality shows and exploited children doing horrifying things we usually have to cover around here. It’s a nice breath of fresh air, and I had every intention of using this post to remind us to be thankful for such great day for fans of good, smart television.
But then “Good Morning America” weatherman Sam Champion went right ahead and drew an entire ding-a-ling across the top of the United States, and I laughed for ten straight minutes, took a screencap of it, and posted it at the top of the page. It was completely out of my hands. What am I, made of stone?
I can’t be expected to work under these conditions.
