Okay so the Oscars were down 6.2% vs. last year but 34.3 million people still watched the show. That's a big number and big numbers are hard to come by these days, so who cares if it was down a bit. If the Academy would listen to me, I'm betting we could get those viewers back and more!

 Oscar night caught up with me. I only watched Girls and passed out cold. 

So much to hate this week and yet, there were a few  moments in Sunday's episode of Girls where I caught myself feeling...dare I say...touched? Lets go with everything I hated first. Hannah's boob and bush flash, Jacob, the bipolar dude who was off his meds, Adam's sister, the hideous, Gaby Hoffman breast feeding while Adam tried not to look. Jessa and Adam mastering their own domains...together, Hannah teaching teens & Hannah speaking to her principal. Hannah's Dad forgetting his wallet, Hannah's Mom screaming for a divorce and Ray's run with a sexually ambiguous barrista. I was a tiny bit touched when Jessa and Adam were playing around on Coney Island like innocent kids and I was a tiny bit touched when Hannah hugged Keith her Dad's one night stand, but the moment that really got me was when Hannah told her Dad she'd be there for him and everything would be okay. It was the moment I was waiting for. Hannah actually grew up right before my own eyes. I wasn't touched by Elijah's run in with the guy from House of Cards. I was excited though. I love that guy and I actually do enjoy Elijah. Need more from that storyline. Everyone elses...not so much
-James Corden gave one of the guys from Million Dollar Listing a break last night and showed Tyga a pretty awesome house. Check out Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1LmXXJJTOrc

-If you watch Jimmy Kimmel on a regular basis or you read this blog on a regular basis then you know that Jimmy never EVER lets Matt Damon on his show. During Jimmy's Oscar special, Matt tried to get by with a little help from his BFF Ben. Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uP4d9YtzkXk 

-One more Jimmy Kimmel clip. Wouldn't be the Oscars without Guillermo on the Red Carpet. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgULMn7bfjk

-NCIS just got the word that they are good for 2 more seasons. 15 years of NCIS! Over 300 episodes! Did Mindy aka Pam Dawber step in crap or what?

Tuesday's Trivia Question: What was the name of the spin-off show from Three's Company with Jack Tripper?
