I love Bill Hader and the characters he played on Saturday Night Live.
Stefan is legendary.
But Hader hosting SNL three weeks into the new season? He only left last spring. That will make two episodes without him before his triumphant return.
Can you say premature celebration?
As a wise friend told me once, give people a chance to miss you.
(Incidentally, I have taken this advice about as well as Bill.)

As Hollywood couples go, Kristen Bell and Dax Shephard are the coolest.
Both are really funny on-screen, and if you follow them on Twitter, you get a feeling they crack each up other at home as well.
‘Cause they don’t take themselves too seriously. Appear to live fairly simply. Love their daughter and their dogs.
Then they go and make this commercial —
They’re not in the Apple cult!
I love them so much right now.

Rory and I were walking to Central Park this morning when we encountered this construction site on the ’30 Rock Block’ (where they used to shoot the exterior of Tina Fey’s apartment).
The hand-lettered sign reads
Is this a thing?
Even with the additional clue of the Con
Ed truck, I don’t know what that means.
Sorry…too much Breaking Bad.

Facebook and Twitter have been all , well, a-twitter with the news of the October release of The Gilmore Girls on Netflix.
Every episode. All the Girls, all the time.
I am happy to see this series finally get some love and attention.
I’ve been with them since the get go. When Rory was young and Dean was her awkward boyfriend and not a stud on Supernatural. When Lauren Graham was passed over in the Emmy nomination department year after year. When Melissa McCarthy played her very funny yet subtle sidekick Sookie St. James. Breakout performance? I didn’t have to wait for Melissa to break out.
I knew her all along.
I have the entire series on DVD.
Perhaps not as beautifully displayed as you see here.
(Takes up too much room that way.)

Today the very funny folks at College Humor posed the question –
What if things we did religiously had their own religion?
They developed religions for things like…
- The weekly TV dramas and sitcoms that we can’t miss
- Our morning Starbucks run
- The smartphone permanently attached to our hip
You get the drift.
I could add even more activities like making my bed (a holdover from my childhood), walking the dog and playing Candy Crush before bed.
And while I am definitely a member of the TV viewership religion, I participate in a more radical faction –
(The DVR made me do it.)

I was horrified by the series finale of How I Met Your Mother.
If you don’t know how it ended oh so many months ago, stop reading. But suffice it to say, the last episode was like a sledgehammer to the very foundation of the show’s premise, crumbling its emotional center, its heart and its credibility.
It was awful.
Soon after the show’s creators and CBS were inundated with bad reviews and poor comments, it was revealed that there was an alternate ending that would be included on the DVD. It has now been leaked.
It is perfect.
Whoever got to choose the version that aired?
