Last week, as part of their (understandably) protracted and hyped-up farewell to David Letterman, CBS aired a 90-minute prime-time special called David Letterman: A Life on Television. Hosted by Ray Romano, it was a clean, efficient retrospective that wrapped Dave’s memorable moments into tight little packages: celebrity interviews of note, political high-rollers, “friends of the show,” recurring segments, and so on. But the special was strangely incongruent to the true spirit of the show, which was never about immortal moments or rehashed clips; it was about an overall spirit, a loose, gonzo, hanging-out vibe. When Letterman’s idol Johnny Carson did an anniversary special or his own farewell tour back in 1992, you knew you were gonna see the tomahawk clip or Tiny Tim’s wedding. But that wasn’t what Letterman’s show — whether Late Night at NBC or The Late Show at CBS — was, or why those of us who loved Letterman watched… Read More
Dennis Quaid (who, once upon a time, starred in classic family movies such as The Rookie, Footloose, and The Parent Trap) overwhelmed the Internet after having a meltdown on set and going off on an expletive-packed tirade. Rumors are already circulating that the whole thing might have been a hoax, but only pure hatred could produce the creative insults Quaid hurls at “Dopey the Dick” — to give an example. Take a peek at these four other ridiculous on-set rants and recall pre-Kimmel era, when we could wholly enjoy an outburst, free from the uncertainty that the ubiquity of pranks has produced.

Would you want to know if the people you see on your way to work are kinky or not? Jimmy Kimmel went on a quest to find out about random people’s sexual preferences by asking them a simple question: are you kinky? Right there. On the street. It’s hard to believe this didn’t go horrifically wrong and elicit some form of unwanted flashing or fondling (if there were any incidents, they weren’t shown in the video). Beware: if you’re inexplicably a fan of Disneyworld’s It’s a Small World ride, one of the answers may taint your presumably non-fetishistic enjoyment (that is, unless it was already tainted by that Friends episode where Ross also claims to have had sex on the ride). It must then be asked, could this person be fabricating her story based on a very old Friends episode, or is this an actual thing that happens?
