Has there ever been a better love letter penned to the Best Show?  I think not.

Impressive.  And good to see Clive Davis finally get it.
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

"We Won't Forget You" (GG's Son) is the best thing ever, along with Moves bumping Mother 13 from the top of the charts.

Awesome job, Tom!

What about WHITE PEOPLE AIN'T SH'T from Superchunk? Only at #7!? That's crazy talk.

Pointing out that little detail is just a side note to how GREAT the whole thing is!  Too many amazing moments to list them all, but the charts might slip by as you are overwhelmed by the whole thing.

My mind was blown at the sight of Kevin Corrigan alone.

I was intrigued by this line from the Expectant Dads credits:
Quote
He is currently developing two television programs for Comedy Central, one of which stars Paul F. Tompkins and the other of which stars The Gregory Brothers.

I was aware of the former but not the latter. How exciting!
