Today in hilarious TV lawsuit news, the ACLU backs up John Oliver’s right to tell Bob Murray to eat shit.

There is a lot of hilarious TV trial news today:

The ACLU has filed an amicus brief in the lawsuit that squirrel-obsessed coal baron has filed against John Oliver, and the section headings are hysterical:

  • Anyone Can Legally Say, “Eat Shit, Bob!”
  • Plaintiff’s Motion for a Restraining Order is Ridiculous. Courts Can’t Tell Media Companies How to Report, Bob.
  • All of John Oliver’s Speech Was Protected by the First Amendment. You Can’t Sue People for Being Mean to You, Bob.
  • Plaintiff’s Requested Injunction Is Clearly Unconstitutional. You Can’t Get a Court Order Telling the Press How to Cover Stories, Bob.

A case against some Boston Teamsters accused of terrorizing the cast and crew of Top Chef is underway and it appears to be chock full of all kinds of racism and sexism.

Sadly, the greatest TV-related lawsuit of our time has been settled and we will never really know the truth about the smelliness of Joanna Krupa’s vagina. And thanks to this story, the search terms that will lead people to FoolishWatcher will really be something.

CBS held its Television Critics Association panel yesterday, and, just, woof: 

The critics had a lot of questions about CBS’ lack of female-led series, the lack of diversity on their shows in general, especially in light of that whole Hawaii Five-0 mess, and the fact that their casting department is comprised ENTIRELY OF WHITE MEN which, you know, might be the problem right there. They were met with a collective shrug. “Hey, we know about it, doesn’t that count for something?” the executives basically said.

Kevin Can Wait is killing off its female lead — you know, the wife and mother on the show — so they can bring Leah Remini onto the show, but don’t worry, they are going to do it “tastefully.” I have many, many questions.

Don’t worry, Wisdom of the Crowd, the series that suggests that crowd-sourcing vigilantes is a good way to solve crimes will address “possible pitfalls” of such a system. O RLY, LIKE WHAT? And don’t worry, real issues will also be handled on the show, like its annoying smart phone noise.

Might there be an actual end to The Big Bang Theory?

The 12th Doctor is going to confront the 1st Doctor’s sexism in the Christmas special.

One thought on “Today in hilarious TV lawsuit news, the ACLU backs up John Oliver’s right to tell Bob Murray to eat shit.

  1. My only point of reference for knowing who Joanna Krupa is, is that she dated my tv boyfriend Jensen Ackles 10 years ago and he broke up with her after she dished (glowingly) about their sex life in some magazine interview.

    YES! YES TO BAST IN AMERICAN GODS SEASON 2! I really hope this means Show is going to spend some time in Cairo. I want to see more of Mr. Ibis and Mr. Jaquel. I want Mr. Ibis to say more things like, ” … the water was poison.” I also eagerly await Shadow’s meeting with Samantha Black Crow. I think the Wisconsin story line will make Shadow an active – rather than reactive – protagonist.

    Dude. So the Strange Angel rocket science / sex magick thing? Jack Parsons was one of the founders of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and L. Ron Hubbard was a member of his coven (or whatever) and close friend until LRH ran off with Parson’s girlfriend and a bunch of his cash. THESE ARE ALL TRUE FACTS.

    AND GIRL YOU GET TO THOSE RECAPS WHEN YOU ARE DAMN GOOD AND READY.
