GoDaddy.com’s Super Bowl Ad Yanked After Being Blasted By Puppy Lovers
Mess with puppies at your own peril during Super Bowl week, GoDaddy.com learned today.

Super Bowl Ads: GoDaddy May Be Up To Its Old Tricks
GoDaddy has done a lot of growing up since it first advertised in the Super Bowl in 2005. Now, a stunt it pulled Tuesday suggests the company is reverting back to its infancy.
GoDaddy seems to have put one over on an easily-duped populace, telling consumers it has decided to pull a Super Bowl ad it has been touting for weeks because of complaints it has received about the way it portrays a puppy at the center of the effort. But it feels like this was something the company had planned all along.
The ruckus started after GoDaddy gave a sneak preview of the ad to NBC’s “Today” program The spot, crafted by Barton F. Graf 9000, shows a clever pup being bounced out of a pick-up truck, then finding its way home over many miles of terrain, only to discover he is being sold because the web-hosting firm helped its »

'The Flash' boss answers burning questions

Never fear, it sounds like we’ll get more information on the Reverse Flash soon, according to executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, who answered some burning Flash questions following a screening of "The Sound and the Fury »

If loose lips sink ships, as the old saying goes, the participants in the homicide of How to Get Away With Murder‘s Sam Keating might be headed for a Titanic-sized disaster.
