Hollywood Babble On & On #388: TV, Sex & Sensibilities

Welcome to the show folks....


Watch this clip...

Now here's where I think Letterman missed an opportunity.

I would have called Ferguson up and told him to go after me hammer and tong, to leave no stone unturned, no line uncrossed, and no possibly conceivable joke unused.

Now you would probably think that would be a dumb idea, but it's not.

Right now Letterman needs to realize that he can't deflect the scandal, he must deflate it, especially with the National Organization of Women putting him on their shit list because of the frequent dipping of his pen into the company ink.

If Ferguson, someone Letterman trusts, was to completely mock the whole affair(s) into the ground the issue becomes trivialized, and anyone else who raises their head to take their shots comes across as hackneyed and old, because all that material would be already done to death.

Obviously, Letterman didn't take the shot, or really give Ferguson the green light to do it for him. They might think it's the right thing to do, that it might somehow stem the public humiliation of Mrs. Letterman, but remember, he's already publicly humiliated her to varying degrees, and by his own admission, multiple times with multiple other women. Watching her lecherous wannabe Don Draper of a husband getting a royal roasting might actually help her feelings of humiliation and powerlessness.

2. Overheard at the Heroes Writing Room:

"Our ratings are tanking! Why are people tuning out?"

"We're poorly marketed."

"We're on NBC. The gold standard of suck."

"We didn't have a clue what to do past season one."

"All you Ivy League dingbats are wrong! The reason we're tanking is because there's not enough barely legal lesbian action! Get Hayden Panty-what-ever, and get her tongue flossing another girl pronto! Instant ratings success!"

"Ooooh. Now I know why you're the boss!"

And by the way, I posted this picture simply to illustrate my point that faux-sapphic story-lines are the last refuge of a sinking show desperately praying for some sort of attention, and not to titillate the pervs who probably read this blog.

Besides the pic is poorly lit.


  1. I resemble that remark!

    Wait, that didn't come out right...

  2. Dirty Dingus sezs...

    Was I suppose to laugh from that video?
