The new season of on HBO has been taking some shots from critics who find it really difficult to follow. True Detective
The dialogue is stilted, and frequently unintelligible.
So as the season trudges to an end, why not put snippets of dialogue out there and see if audience members can tell the difference between True Detective sayings and fortune cookie sayings?
That's the basis of the sketch on the other night. Late Night with Seth Myers
"If you have no idea what that means, welcome to the world of ..." is probably the best line of the bit. True Detective
It's hard for me to even write this, but I guess it's official.
After 40 years together, one of show biz's most endearing couples has headed for Splitsville.
Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy made it official yesterday, with both of them releasing the same statement on Twitter.
Naturally, cynical minds think this is just a publicity stunt to get people to watch this fall on ABC. The Muppets
Cynical show-biz minds, like the one inside the head of Alan Cumming. But Miss Piggy says it's all very real.
Maybe if we hope, and pray, and threaten to hold our breath until we all turn as blue as Cookie Monster, they'll reconsider...
Let's do it!
Fox News announced the ten Republican presidential candidates who will appear in its prime-time presidential debate tomorrow night in Cleveland between 9 and 11PM.
Picking ten - they claim it was done scientifically, and we can all believe Fox News, right? - leaves seven candidates to the not-prime-time debate to be held between 5 and 6PM.
Here's the line-up: #1 - Donald Trump; #2 - Jeb Bush; #3 - Scott Walker; #4 - Mike Huckabee; #5 - Ben Carson; #6 - Ted Cruz; #7 - Marco Rubio; #8 - Rand Paul; #9 - Chris Christie; and #10 - John Kasich.
Listen to the Fox News moderators trip over themselves with excitement...
Seems like is famous for putting people on their panel with a proclivity for putting their feet in their mouths. The View
Case in point: Kelly Osbourne.
For some reason, the ladies of were discussing The Donald's plan to deport illegal aliens. The View
And Kelly finds it ridiculous.
So she points out that if Donald gets his wish to remove all the Latinos from the USA, he won't have anyone to clean his toilets.
Which is just slightly more ridiculous.
And when you get called out by Raven Symone - girlfriend, it's time to rethink your life.
"If you kick every Latino out of this country, then who is going to be cleaning your toilet, Donald Trump?"- Kelly Osbourne on "The View" More here: http://on.msnbc.com/1IKCwpX

Kevin Bacon is an activist.
He's frequently out front, campaigning for the rights of those who can't campaign for themselves.
Now, he's part of the oppressed group, and he's taking a stand.
A stand for gratuitous male nudity in Hollywood.
When it comes to Freeing The Bacon, Kevin is serious...
Or not. But watch this. It's very funny!
A police officer in Rochester, Michigan was on patrol on Sunday when he spotted a baby skunk in the street.
The skunk was walking in circles, because its head was stuck in a yogurt container.
Rather than drive by and leave the skunk to its own devices, the cop got out, approached the skunk with a great deal of caution, and managed to pluck the container from the skunk's head.
His reward? You guessed it. The skunk raised its tail and took aim.
It's not clear if the skunk unleashed its awful perfume, but it sure was ready to do just that.
Check out this video the Rochester Police Department posted on Facebook. It shows a baby skunk with a yogurt container on it's head. Watch what happens.

A line of intense thunderstorms ripped across the tiny state of Rhode Island yesterday morning.
The cities of Cranston and Warwick, in the middle of the state, were hardest hit when a phenomenon called microbursts ripped up trees and down power lines and caused general chaos.
We've all seen pictures of the aftermath of severe storms, but here's one I've never seen before.
In Cranston, one guy's lawn was torn up.
Whatever the weather was, it tipped over a tree and the tree lifted up the lawn in the front yard, making it look like a grass teepee when it was done.
Have you ever seen anything like it before?
Incredible picture this morning out of Cranston, RI. I don't think I've ever seen this before! Photo by my friend and former WCSH colleague Brian Yocono.

The charge? Shoplifting.
She allegedly walked out of the store with a shopping cart filled with about 100 different items worth over $600.
has the story. The best quote comes from her ex-husband, who said, "This was a clear misunderstanding." Entertainment Tonight
Sure. We all misunderstand that when we put things in a carriage at Target, we have to pay for them before taking them out of the store.
Happens to me all the time...
Veteran actor Max Von Sydow - perhaps most famous for his role in The Exorcist - has joined the Season 6 cast of . Game of Thrones
He'll be playing the Three-Eyed Raven, the mysterious and mystical tutor to Bran Stark (who didn't make a single appearance in Season 5).
I'm sure he'll be phenomenal.
But, wouldn't it be great to see him play a scene as The Exorcist, opposite the evil and thoroughly possessed Red Queen?
Someone call the show's story runners. I think we're on to something here...
Gwen Stefani and her hubby Gavin Rossdale are calling it quits after 13 years of marriage.
They stopped short of making a Gwyneth Paltrow "conscious uncoupling" statement, but here's what they did have to say to US Weekly.
"While the two of us have come to the mutual decision that we will no longer be partners in marriage, we remain partners in parenthood and are committed to jointly raising our three sons in a happy and healthy environment. To that end, we respectfully request privacy from the media during this time."
TMZ's got the story.
And I can't help but wonder how long that "respectful privacy" will last...
