"Amy Schumer's Fast-Food Aaron Sorkin Parody Is Spot-On"

I absolutely agree. (Here's effusive praise for the bit: "Why Amy Schumer is the Future of Comedy".)

"Johnny Carson: The Man Who Retired"

"Now that Letterman is calling it quits, a look back at the king of late night in 2002."

One bit encapsulates his appeal:

Even so, he was intrigued to learn that sales [of DVDs of his old shows] had jumped in the wake of September 11th . . .

"David Letterman's top 10 most memorable moments"

Why Madonna--#9--thought she could embarrass or show up Dave is beyond me.

Failure

I made a lot of mistakes and realized I had to let them go. Don't think about your errors or failures, otherwise you'll never do a thing. 

Bonus: "50 Greatest 'Saturday Night Live' Sketches of All Time".

"Streaming Device Showdown: Who Wins the Battle for Your TV?"

I like my Roku 3 an awful lot, so the conclusion of this article didn't surprise me.

"How Hannah Horvath is Like Jo March"

The latest attempt to attribute Big Meaning to HBO's Girls: it's just like Little Women

Bzzzzzt. Uh . . . not really, no. Thanks for playing, though.
