Probably my favorite comic at the moment, Hannibal Buress has landed his own show on Comedy Central. The series will be called Why? and should be rolled out in the near future.

The Grammys air tonight on CBS at 8/7 CT and this thread will be open during the duration of the show to talk about/make sarcastic comments about the awards show. The entire thing is also streaming online. And, if the Grammys aren't for you, I recommend at least reading through Bob Dylan's speech.
These songs didn't come out of thin air. I didn't just make them up out of whole cloth. Contrary to what Lou Levy said, there was a precedent. It all came out of traditional music: traditional folk music, traditional rock 'n' roll and traditional big-band swing orchestra music. I learned lyrics and how to write them from listening to folk songs. And I played them, and I met other people that...

Yahoo! will be bringing Community back for a 6th season.
In addition to Harmon returning as showrunner, Community vet Chris McKenna is also in talks to return as exec producer and Harmon's top lieutenant. And while the six seasons part of #SixSeasonsAndAMovie has come true, there’s nothing official — yet— about the feature film part. Industry insiders, however, say there have been discussions about how that might still happen, too. NBCUniversal-owned Universal Televison, meanwhile, blessed Sony's talks with Yahoo and will remain as a co-producer on the show (though Sony, as it always has, will remain lead studio in day-to-day production of the show.)

Somehow the Grammys had yet to allow songs featuring sampling (primarily hip hop) or interpolation to be considered for every category, including majors like Song of the Year. That changed today, with the Recording Academy announcing a number of rule and name changes that included making songs that sample valid contenders for every category.
