Happy anniversary Ken...September 30, 1982, Cheers premiered on NBC-TV. That was a quick 25 years.


"Anne Coulter" threw me, until I realized it was shorthand for "any alleged woman with a pulse."


How about Harry Chapin's W*O*L*D for the soundtrack album?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1l0fH0dRUowhttp://www.lyricsdepot.com/harry-chapin/wold.html


Steve Martin saying the Ellen De Generes line would certainly resonate given his history with Anne Heche! Fine scene, by the way, even if it does walk that line between "here's where the character reveals his true self" and "here's where the writer shows how us all how humorous and insightful he is." :)

Ann Coulter? No, you lost me at "picture Jason Alexander". Thank you, no. WHAT do people see in him? Mediocre blob of boredom, befouling show after show.Okay, I forced myself to move past the Jason Alexander directive (But hint: that's why it hasn't sold. People keep picturing a movie starring Jason Alexander, and shutting down.), and instead imagine someone talented. I went with Christopher Walken instead (The man is funny.), and then I could read the scene. In future, if I may give advice to someone vastly more successful than I, if you want folks to read sentence 2, don't put "picture Jason Alexander" in sentence 1.And I'm all for Steve Martin having sex with Ann Coulter, as long as it's oral, although if anyone is rude enough to keep talking with her mouth full, it's Mad Dog Coulter.BTW, one way to perhaps have at least actually tried to have some of those women, rather than just prattle on about how much he wanted them, would have been to have left Bakersfield and gone where they actually are. Frankly, I wouldn't listen to Life Lessons from a man who never even learned Life Lesson #1: If you are in Bakersfield; LEAVE!


I liked the Ann Coulter line. It said something about the character - he went from normal guy with normal libido to 'holy crap this guy would f*ck anything' in a second.Made me chuckle.

From today's article in the Chicago Tribune on Tina Fey & 30 Rock: Ken Levine, an Emmy-winning writer for "M*A*S*H," "Frasier" and "Cheers," is a "30 Rock" fan and says he agrees with that course correction."I think what she means is that some good jokes don't land because they go by too fast or are not really heard," Levine says. "Things can get lost. I think she's making a good adjustment."Levine thinks Fey ought to change one more thing, though.Tina shortchanges her character," Levine says. "It's lovely that she's so generous, allowing other cast members to shine, but she herself is very funny and at times underused. I hope Liz Lemon has more to do this season."
