I caught the premiere of Maron last night.  This may seem bold, but it's a cross between Louie and Curb Your Enthusiasm.  Let's not get crazy, I'm not saying it's as good as either of those programs, but that's the tone of it.  Very self-deprecating and very smart. Bravo to Maron and IFC.  I really hope this show does well so it sticks around for a while.

Thanks to Andy Denhart for this plea to renew Splash for a second season.  Fingers crossed.

This isn't TV related, but evidently in Miami some sick individuals are locking two dogs in the trunks of their cars, blasting music, driving around and letting the dogs fight to the death.  I'm sickened and speechless.

Ryan Seacrest interviewed Max Greenfield and Jake Johnson from New Girl yesterday.  Click here to watch and listen.

More from Jake Johnson as he and Vulture's Julie Klausner did some day drinking and it was all captured on video.

Here's an interview with Happy Ending's Adam Pally during which he talks about how he ended up in Iron Man 3.

From Entertainment Weekly, "CNN has ordered a documentary series looking at the challenges faced by the city of Chicago.  In Chicagoland, executive producers Robert Redford and Laura Michalchyshyn team withBrick City filmmakers Marc Levin and Mark Benjamin in an eight-part series about “a city generating change and innovation in social policy, education, and public safety – to meet national and local challenges.”

According to CNN’s release, Chicagoland will capture “the riveting, real-life drama of a city looking to unite at this critical moment in the city’s history. In the aftermath of a countrywide economic collapse, Chicago faces the challenges of improving its public education system, and neighborhood and youth safety. Can the city’s leaders, communities, and residents come together in ways that expand opportunities and allow aspirations to be realized?”  Still gotta come through Chicago . . . . 

Here is a preview of season three of The Killing.  I'm all in and was happy to hear AMC was bringing the show back.
