Do we need a How I Met Your Mother spin-off

I watched The Man With The 132-lb Scrotum  last night on TLC.  Take that in for a second. I mentioned this special a few weeks back and it is nothing less than fascinating.  Wesley Warren claims that he banged his testicle which resulted in a swelling that never went away.  His scrotum increased by about three pounds per month and this was attributed to a condition called scrotal lymphedema, also known as scrotal elephantiasis, which is a "massive enlargement" of the scrotum due to thickening of tissue and accumulation of fluid.  If you're squeamish, I'd avoid this one at all costs. 

If you're into theories about how Breaking Bad  might end, Wired  has laid them out for you.  I think I'll opt for just watching to see how the last six episodes play out.

 Deadline reports that D.L. Hughley is getting his own show on FX based on his own life.  Why?  Evidently, the show will be "based on Hughley’s life experiences and revolves around him as an unapologetically honest family man and radio host."

The promo poster for the next season of Scandal has been released.  October 3 cannot get here soon enough.

Eight facts about Orange Is The New Black's  Matt McGory. 

Raylon Givens is also going to be on The Mindy Project ?  He will be playing "a wild, professional skateboarder in his mid-forties who nearly runs Mindy over in Union Square before asking her out on a date."  I'm all in for next season.

The most live Tweeted about show on all of television last week?  Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.  It garnered more than 2x the Tweets of the 2nd place show, which was . . . Pretty Little Liars .  The only network show in the top 10 was the CMS Music Festival on ABC.
