Why Chelsea Handler’s sex tape is bad news for comedians. Am I right, ladies?

Radar Online continued its ongoing coverage this morning of the long-ago sex tape Chelsea Handler made that is supposedly about to resurface for purchase. So what? You say Chelsea Handler herself already addressed this back in April when Radar first revealed the sex tape's existence, and offered her rebuttal? Let's listen to that again, shall we. Roll the clip. OK. Summing up. Chelsea Handler, one of the richest stand-up comedians working in the past year, best-selling author, late-night TV host, host of this weekend's MTV Video Music Awards, thought that the best way to break into show business and her comedy career was to film herself having sex and send that to the comedy clubs, agents and managers. And this supposedly worked. It has worked so well that Handler shows off her porn skills to anyone and everyone at parties. Great job. As Louis CK would not say: Hilarious! Female comedians everywhere must be overwhelmed with their excitement just knowing that the key to success in this business is so simple. You don't need to be funny, ladies. Just be naked. And put it on tape. Once you become famous, you can stay legitimate as a funny female comedian by posing for Playboy. That'll get you a regular seat next to Jay Leno! Here is the safe-for-work portion of that tape, which Radar uploaded. Notice how old the footage...

Comedy Central shifts “Big Lake” time slot again, airing season one’s final two episodes in 6 p.m. hour

I'm not an expert on TV, although I play one on the Internet. So let me tell you this: When a TV network changes the time slot for a series twice in its initial season, that's not usually a good thing. Is it ever a good thing? Discuss. In your head. Then keep reading, because I'm not done yet. Comedy Central's new sitcom, Big Lake, was airing at 10 and 10:30 p.m., then 8 and 8:30 p.m., and now, tonight, the final two episodes of the first season will air at…well, you read the headline…6 and 6:30 p.m. Who is watching Comedy Central at 6 p.m.? Is Big Lake a hit with people who could be watching their local news but would rather not? Hmmm....
