    What’s with Disney ordering all the sequels

  2. Britta Unfiltered says:

    Wyatt Cenac is leaving The Daily Show? Aww, say it ain’t so. I’ll miss him.
    Sounds like some fun guest stars for Portlandia. I’m the most excited for Patton Oswalt, but I think Matt Lucas will probably be the funniest out of all the guest stars. I can picture him just killing on that show, as he does in everything else he’s in. He will fit in well with the quirky world of Fred and Carrie. I’m getting super antsy for that show to come back on the air.

    That Life Size sequel should have been Lindsay Lohans comeback project instead of that awful Liz & Dick.
