The Watchmen Saturday Morning Cartoon!

Today the pop culture universe revolves around the new Watchmen movie, so far be it for me to miss out on this, especially since one of our superheroes is called The Comedian. Even though I have yet to read the comic, nor did I go to a midnight screening or geek out…but I would love to watch it as a Saturday morning cartoon. What luck! Thanks, Happy Harry...

“Seinfeld” cast reuniting: “Curb Your Enthusiasm”

Sometimes headlines just write themselves, people. Entertainment Weekly broke the news Thursday afternoon that all the four co-stars of Seinfeld — Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Michael Richards — will appear together in the upcoming seventh season of HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm.

The tour is expected to resume in the fall. Previously purchased tickets will be honored once the new dates are scheduled or ticketholders can contact their place of purchase for refunds. “I’m so touched by everyone’s support and well wishes,” said Williams. “This tour has been amazing fun and I can’t wait to get back out on the road after a little tune-up.” On a related note, it makes me wonder what happens to our favorite comedians when they get older and need to be cared for? Veteran comedians and variety performers Shelley Berman, Austin "Rocky" Kalish, Hal Kanter, Gary Owens, and Paul Pumpian gathered around the lunch table recently to talk about how they're upset at a proposal to close down the Motion Picture and Television Fund Hospital...
