Saying the words "Friar's Club" without scaring away millennials who only speak in memes. Making the celeb in the chair feel honored, but just humbled enough to not jump out a window. Showcasing TV-friendly material that has enough foul language to make Quentin Tarantino blush: The comedic roast walks a whole lot of fine lines -- it's just part of the delicate mix of sick burns, underhanded compliments, and unthinkable vocabulary that makes up the cocktail.

Each day Gout grows a little bit crazier, while his wife tries to hold their marriage together. Arnold and O’Heir play Gout’s dad and uncle, respectively. DuMont and Lombardi’s characters introduce him to two widely divergent technological paths. Brandt plays Gout’s boss, Washington plays his best friend, Fretts plays his cable guy cousin and Searcy plays the detective who investigates him for a crime he may or may not have committed. “It’s about »

Yesterday, I published my review of Netflix's Love, one of my favorite new shows of the year so far. (Its first season debuts Friday.) A romantic comedy about a walking disaster of a woman (Gillian Jacobs) and the nice guy (Paul Rust) who falls for her, it was co-created by Rust, Lesley Arfin, and Judd Apatow, who between Freaks and Geeks, Girls, and his many movies (including Trainwreck, whose title he says he lifted from this project), has plenty of experience finding the most mortifying aspects of interpersonal relationships. At press tour last month, Apatow and I spoke about the Netflix experience and the many ways TV has changed since his days on Freaks and Geeks and The Larry Sanders Show, why he thinks comedy episodes shouldn't be limited to 30 minutes, how Jacobs (who had a recurring role on Girls last season) wound up in Love, and a lot more. »

The second episode, which aired Jan. 31, brought in 1.8 million total viewers, delivering a 10% increase among viewers 18-49 from the Jan. 24 premiere, which marked E!’s largest non-spinoff unscripted launch in the past three years. Three airings of “Hollywood Medium” drew 3.2 million unique viewers on its Sunday night series debut.
