CBS made a deal with producer Greg Garcia ("My Name Is Earl", "Raising Hope", "Yes, Dear") to make two pilots recently. One, "The Millers" with Will Arnett, premiered as a series last week to good ratings and lukewarm reviews. The other remains unsold but CBS (in a semi-unprecedented move) has put the pilot up online. So sit back and waste 22 minutes with a rather "Earl"-esque complex-concept comedy starring Stephen Fry as a loyal butler and Rupert "Ron Weasley" Grint as "SUPER CLYDE".
Angus Jones, better known as Jake on the show Two and a Half Men, has joined the Seventh Day Adventist Church. The young star has released a pair of videos urging people to stop watching the show.
I walk up to "2 Broke Girls" co-creator Michael Patrick King, offer my hand and say, "Mr. King, I'm sorry things got so ugly there, but I wanted to say that it came from a place where a lot of us in the room like the parts of your show involving Kat and Beth, and want the rest of the show to live up to that." King, stone-faced, silently turns and walks off the stage.

Let's Go To the Mall!! Could Robin Sparkles be the patron saint of Black Friday? Ok, so maybe her myspace page is just marketing for a CBS sitcom, but her video is one of the funniest, most accurate (and too damned catchy for its own good!) 80's video parodies in recent memory. The show's not bad, either. Probably the best comedy not on NBC right now.
When I think WTC attacks, I think...SITCOM? Uhhh, CBS, uhhh...hmmm...anyone?
