Chris Gethard Knows What It’s Like to Write a Book About Failing While Your TV Show Is Ending
While writing “Lose Well,” Chris Gethard sensed that by the time it was published, the circumstances of his career might be a little different. That led him to crafting a sort-of self-help book that, well, helped himself.

“It was about about a month before I had the meeting that officially ended ‘The Chris Gethard Show,'” said Gethard, referring to his unclassifiable cable-spanning talk show. “It was such a weird bittersweet feeling to know that we were locking the book and I was like, ‘I think the show might be done.'”

At the end of May, “The Chris Gethard Show” ended after nearly 50 episodes on cable, following a robust four-year life on public access. Throughout “Lose Well” there are vague references to the show’s potential imminent demise.

“I think this book is as much an ending to the TV show as the final episode itself,” he said. “Even

Imprisoned Bill Cosby Loses More Lawyers; Latest New Team On Board
Less than a month after Bill Cosby was sent to state prison for the 2004 rape of Andrea Constand, the man once called “America’s Dad” was up to his old tricks of replacing lawyers.

“Kindly withdraw my appearance on behalf of the Defendant, William Henry Cosby, Jr., in the above-docket mater,” said Joseph P. Green late last week in a filing in Pennsylvania court (read it here). “In light of the entry of appearance of other counsel of choice for the defendant, William H. Cosby, Jr., kindly withdraw my appearance as co-counsel for the defendant,” asserted Keystone State based Peter Goldberger today as the lawyer also exited the case (read that filing here).

“My work has ended,” Green told Deadline Monday erasing any ambiguity of his role for the actor going forward. Technically, the departure of both Green and Goldberger, who took over as Cosby’s attorneys in June after

Remember when Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift‘s MTV Vma Awards acceptance speech? Of course you do. Well, apparently we all have “Saturday Night Live” to thank for that.

According to former “SNL” star Seth Meyers, who returned to host NBC’s Emmy-winning late night staple for the first time on October 13, West was involved in a 2007 sketch about how he got a kick out of interrupting various awards shows, from the Kids Choice Awards to the Nobel Prize to a state fair. But as Meyers revealed in his monologue (watch above), “That sketch was in 2007 and he interrupted Taylor Swift in 2009.”

As the audience reacted in shocked laughter, Meyers explained, “That whole time I was telling you that story, you thought it was based on him interrupting Taylor Swift. That hadn’t happened yet.
