Hollywood: Where Dreamers Go To Find Assistant Jobs

It may be the best job you're gonna get...

"Director of Development seeks 4th Assistant. Previous 4th Assistant took 2nd Assistant position elsewhere. Duties include assisting 3rd Assistant with 1st Assistant's personal errands and filling in for 3rd Assistant when 3rd Assistant substitutes for 2nd Assistant if 2nd Assistant is out sick or shadowing 1st Assistant, lunch pick-ups for 1st-3rd Assistants and light filing. Benefits after 3 months. Excellent opportunity for someone looking to become a 3rd assistant."


But this may help...

NBC's My Own Worst Enemy - Yes You Are

'Enemy' no hero for NBC - duh.

My Own Worst Enemy - NBC

NBC's My Own Worst Enemy has the dumbest premise to date. Dumb as a rock. How could this show get "fairly good reviews" (variety 10-15-08) ??

I saw nothing but dramababble and/or badactionbabble. What's the purpose of the Slater character's forced schizophrenia? What good does it do for his "off time," non-secret agent life? Obviously none, cause the bad guys show up at his "cover" house.

This premise is so stupid, there can be no show. It's like a music video, no story, no problem. What really intrigues me is why NBC greenlit this show. Why? NBC's d-girls are drunk or something.

IQ Minimums For Political Candidates? Oh Yeah!

Why can't we get a "nutrition" like box for politicians?  Something on the line of:


IQ = 104
Truth = 37%
Corrupt = 19%
Out-of-touch = 39%
Actual Days Worked = 122/365
PAC Percentage / Campaign $  = 44%
Reading speed / comprehension  = 150 wpm / 44%


Of course it will never be happen, but really, there are some whack-job spend-a-holics over there in D.C.

Think about it while you watch this...
