Me, too. I'd love to see McHale live doing stand up. In my opinion, he is what makes The Soup the funniest show on TV ;-D

Still got my Dollhouse running which is nice (though I was pissed it got pre-empted by something as stupid as a Yankees game) and I've recently started watching SNL which happens to be hilarious (I know, I am how many years late on this??? lol) and I started watching Community which is also hilarious. Third episode was the best, and I think it's going to keep getting better. ;-D

I thought the Mad Men finale was great. My only complaint is that it looks like Campbell is going to have a big role next season, and for whatever reason, I can't stand that character. Though I didn't really like Cosgrove either, so it is what it is I guess. I do like Kinsey, so hopefully they find a way to keep him around. But yeah, good episode, and next season should be a good one.

i dont think Pete's a likeable character, but i like the character if that makes sense (but it sounds like you dont like him regardless). yeah hopefully we'll see more of Kinsey. does anyone know if they have already greenlight a season 4? IIRC there was some contract disputes or something between the writer and AMC for before Season 3

That makes sense, I just don't like the character, not even in a love-to-hate sort of way. I mean, what character on Mad Men is likeable, in a traditional sense? Cooper, maybe? Price? Most of them are heavy drinking, selfish, greedy, philandering men without much in terms of redeeming qualities, but they are great characters. With Campbell I just get annoyed everytime he's on screen.

However, I think Sterling is my favorite character on that show. Something about him just cracks me up.

yeah it really is a great show

I'm just glad the non-Don characters are coming back to the show. I thought the last half of this season was as good or better as any point in the show, but it got kind of old dealing with Don's stuff all the time. After that British guy got his toe shredded it seemed like the lesser characters lost a lot of screen time.

Screw Hargrove but I hope Kinsey comes along too. And to a couple of posts up, I think Sal was one of those genuinely likable characters, and he definitely got the wrong end of that stick, so I hope he comes back. The way they left off with his story line and his reappearances in the "Last time on..." segments he's gotta return at some point.

And the best news of all: Joan is coming back to the office :-D ;-D
