  • Does Shonda not have an ABC commitment. Or does that mean that they passed on it.

  • Any season of Arrested without Lucille 2 would have been a wasteful endeavor. Glad to see it’s official.

  • I’m still hoping they’ll pull Guilded Lillies, that dead Shonda Rhimes pilot. Was really looking forward to that

  • Ridiculousness? Why?? I mean, they play amusing internet videos of people doing stupid things. We get it. But the guy who hosts it, Rob Dyrdek? Horrible. I know Tosh.0 isn’t exactly breaking new ground either, playing funny videos, but at least he is funny and interesting himself. The Dyrdek guy was okay on his other shows on MTV, but he just ins’t host material. He always seems like he is either stoned or half asleep. I tried to watch this show a few times because I like the videos, but I never made it through an entire episode.
