  • In regards to Jenny Slate, the words “actress” and “comedienne” are used very loosely.

  • I kind of wish Fox would wait until after the World Series to premiere their shows. I know that would put them back into very late October/early November, but I hate that the shows premiere and then we don’t really see them for a month.
