The Continuing Wisdom of #TGIT

Say Yes to the Press

I’ve had an unusual number of blog views on the Shonda Rhimes book review I wrote back in November.

Since New Year’s, 23 people have seen it. Only 13 saw it when I first posted it.

What the hell? I was pleased with the post, so I don’t mind, I’m just befuddled.

Also, at least one person found it by searching for “veal practice rhimes,” which made me happy in my lazy places.

“Did I tell you what veal practice is?” asks Rhimes. “Oh! Veal practice involved me lying very still on the sofa trying as hard as I could to mimic the life of a veal. While eating veal. I wish I were kidding. It. Was. Magic.”

In which I betray the sisterhood…

Honest question — how are you gonna shit on him for “man-splaining” when he’s…a man….you’ve asked…to explain something? I don’t think there was anything wrong with his answer. P.S. He’s an up-and-coming comedian about to take over a massive empire of a TV show. Exactly what 18- to 34-year-old male boat do you think he wants to rock right this minute?

That cover represents the CURRENT late-night hosts. Samantha Bee’s show won’t be on for months yet; Chelsea Handler’s show isn’t on anymore. If anything, I’m happy the cover is making so many people go, “Oh, hey, yeah, this IS a large group of white fucks. Let’s talk about that.”

I’m sure when Samantha Bee’s show gets closer, she’ll have a ton of covers (she BETTER), and I’m super excited to have a lady in late-night, but for right this second, yeah, it’s kind of a sausage-fest.

Get Shonda Rhimes on this, man. “Night Times with Shonda Rhimes?” I’d watch the HELL out of that.
