AMC's "The Walking Dead" was a trending topic on Twitter last night and it was a lot of fun to watch it on Halloween night. Be sure to check out my interview with series star Jon Bernthal and post what you think of the pilot here.
Who watched Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert's "Rally for Sanity And/Or Fear" on Comedy Central on Saturday? What'd you think? If you went to the Los Angeles satellite rally please tell us about ithere. It's funny how, in the current climate, it takes the likes of stand-up comedians and rock n' rollers to provide the voice of reason and moderation. We're not sure who will be on "The Daily Show" tonight but it's sure to feature a wrap up of Saturday's events as well as some behind-the-scenes footage.
Jonathan Ames has a new Creator's Blog post about last night's episode of "Bored To Death", you should check it out, particularly you starving artists.
Speaking of "Bored to Death", anyone see Zach Galifianakis light up a joint on Bill Maher Friday night? See the vid at the end of the post.---
