It's happened once again, as the "Greatest Event in TV History" has been unleashed. This time around, Adam Scott and friends recreated the intro to the early 1980s sitcom "Too Close for Comfort," which is what many expected after the teaser image that was released.
Before the show could get underway, they had to introduce the cast and go behind-the-scenes to show how it all was made, of course. Things started off with Jeff Probst essentially apologizing for the last two installments not truly being TV's greatest moment. Instead, he renamed the night "An Event in TV History," which definitely seems more appropriate.
Joining Scott, who played Jim J. Bullock's role in the intro, was Catherine O'Hara (Nancy Dussault), Jon Glaser (Ted Knight), Chelsea Peretti (Deborah Van Valkenburgh) and Kathryn Hahn (Lydia Cornell).
They weren't the only ones getting in on the fun though, as Jason Mantzoukas was the director, »

Too often anti-gay people are homophobic because they don't think they know anyone gay. But statistics show that, well, we're everywhere — there's at least one of us in every family. We have power within our own families and communities to inspire change, and you can see that in these sisters, mothers and aunts who have inspired their high-profile relations. We can see their change in activism, on screen and in specific subcultures that don't often have discussions on different sexualities.
This week, Jennifer Lopez told Access Hollywood that her gay aunt inspired her to create The Fosters for ABC Family, which is poised to be a pivotal show about an interracial lesbian couple who also happen to be mothers. (Yes, One Million Moms is already hating it and we haven't even seen one episode.)

Add Lydia Cornell to the growing list of gay marriage supporters in Hollywood. The star of 80's sitcom "Too Close For Comfort" and radio host has recently come out in support of marriage equality in a recent blog post.
As pointed out by Queerty, Cornell spoke of her lesbian sister not having a choice in her sexuality and how she's "heartsick at the bigotry" she sees in America.
"My sister is gay, and she never made a choice, but that’s beside the point. The marriage contract is a private contract between two individuals. How does it hurt anyone to let two souls honor their monogamy by allowing them the sanctity and dignity of marriage, as other human beings have a right to? Isn’t this in the Bill of Rights?
I am heartsick at the bigotry I see in America today. I can’t believe my sister »

The Fenway Institute found that "lesbians and bisexual women are as likely as heterosexual women to develop cervical cancer, but are much less likely to be regularly screened for it, putting them at greater risk of the potentially deadly disease." Get thee to a gyno!
If you're hemming and hawing over joining lesbian dating site, Buzzfeed gives you reasons to just do it.
I especially have to thank two women — my beautiful mothers, Vicki and Jackie, who have been so incredibly supportive, and so wonderful, not just in the last three months of shooting, but in all of my 16 years. Thanks so much, mums.
Two stage moms are better than one.
Lydia Cornell is a radio host, but to some of us, she was Sara Rush, the bouncy blonde daughter on Too Close for Comfort in the 1980s. She makes a powerful argument in favor of marriage equality in the name of her lesbian sister, but also in the name of Jesus.
Senator Rand Paul, for all his talk of a lack of government interference in citizens lives, really hates the idea of marriage equality. He doesn't think he can win on the federal level, so his goal is simple: rely on bigotry and fear at the state level to delay it for decades or more. "I think right now if we say we're only going to [have] a federally mandated one man, one woman marriage, we're going to lose that battle because the country is going the other way right now. If we're to say each state can decide, I think »
