In the 2nd part of the Madoff event, I learned even more about the story. I didn't realize that the SEC never really caught him. I knew that his son's had something to do with it all but I thought they turned on him AFTER the FBI and the SEC were involved. I also didn't know the brother went to prison. I did know both sons died but I didn't know that Ruth got to keep some dough. If she invest right...she'll do okay on 2.5MM. Hope she found a money guy she can trust.
Lip Sync Battle
I don't know when they filmed all of these Lip Sync Battle eps but there hasn't been one where Chrissy Teigen looks pregnant. This week, Nina Dobrev aka Elena from The Vampire Diaries vs. Tim Tebow. I think they both were hitting on each other during their performances. Nina performed Marvin Gaye's Let's Get it On" and overdid it a bit. I honestly didn't think she had some of those moves in her. Tim kicked ass on Sam Hunt's "Take Your Time" Tim's still a virgin, right? 2nd round, Nina put on the shoulder pads and performed "Cheerleader" and Tim showed off his six-pack, jump roping skills and his ability to consume a raw egg AND remember all the words to "Eye of the Tiger." Tim's the winner in my book.
Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee
I'm really not a Will Ferrell fan in general. I don't hate the guy or anything, I just don't generally enjoy him. I was a bit disappointed that Jerry chose Will as his final guest of this round of episodes. I didn't find Will as funny as Jerry did and I sort of felt that Jerry was laughing too much at Will's stories. Maybe you guys will enjoy Will more than I did. I did really like the car and I did watch the whole episode, I just didn't love it. Let me know if you do.
THE OTHER STUFF-I wonder if Les is happy or not about Phillipe Dauman becoming his new boss. Sumner stepped down, the board voted in Phillipe and now Les reports in to him, officially. You know what they say...be careful what you wish for!
-James Corden sent his parents who know nothing about American football to cover the Superbowl again. Hilarious! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QiPSV-gRB9o
-I totally forgot to tell my husband last night about Matt LeBlanc. He's officially been named one of the new hosts of Top Gear when it returns. Not the American version of Top Gear, The BRITISH version. I don't think he's going to be using a British accent either. This is the 1st time the show will have a non British host in 39 year history.

-USA already renewed it's newest series, Colony. Not my thing at all, but super hot Sawyer from Lost stars in it so I'm happy for him and all of you Colony fans.
-Maybe Matt Czuchry reads my blog! I wanted him to return to the Gilmore Girls and guess what? It's official! He's headed back to Stars Hollow for the Gilmore Girls 4 show reunion event on Netflix and I couldn't be happier. I was a Logan fan big time. Anyone remember Logan's LAST NAME?
