Sad times for showrunner Warren Leight have been short - his beloved "Lights Out" ran its last episode a week ago but he's already been tapped to run "Law & Order: SVU" in order to revitalize a show that has been run by Neal Baer for over a decade. We haven't been a regular viewer of "SVU" for years - perhaps Leight's arrival will change that.
Please review our recent interviews: Jen Kirkman who co-hosted yesterday's webcast of "The Comedy Awards," comedian Josh Wolf of "Chelsea Lately"/"After Lately"/"College Experiment," and our Channel Zero podcast with Josh Wolf.
