What is this - Gwyneth Paltrow doing her impression of January Jones hosting #SNL?

Asked whether a (very) successful 2010 will make his act disingenuous, Louis CK says "Nah, life is shitty no matter what."#TCA

TVKel Kel Kendrick
"Your White Swan is good, but your Black Swan needs some work Miss Oklahoma." #MissAmerica

EVERYONE: There is a #Justified marathon on FX right now. STOP WATCHING #SNL.
adamfairholm Adam Fairholm
This episode of SNL is like local TV trying to be the Daily Show.
noelrk Noel Kirkpatrick
@greeney28 Does it involve revoking NBC's license on Saturday nights from 11:30pm to 1am?
greeney28 Karen Petruska
Where can I get a direct line to "Julius"? I wanna call the FCC. I have some advice for them. #SNL
fymaxwell Max Dawson
It's like an entire #SNL episode dedicated to the fact that Gwyneth sang "Fuck You" on Glee.
amorris7012 Austin Morris
Why does #SNL continuously insist on turning itself into the worst episode of #Glee ever?
TVDoneWright TVDoneWright (Adam)
That's the FOURTH appearance from Wiig tonight already. This does not bode well #SNL
fymaxwell Max Dawson
What do Cee Lo and Snooki have in common? Both make me check if my TV is set to the correct aspect ratio.
fymaxwell Max Dawson
Every sketch on this #SNL should boil down to: "Gwyneth Paltrow is insufferable."

God bless Saturday Night Live, the show that is cool to watch _and_ cool to rag on. It's keeping the TWoP spirit alive in all of us.

All right, now we have to go back to not making fun of people. Until tomorrow night. #GoldenGlobes
TVKel Kel Kendrick
Seriously, Miss Colorado, your tease of a tap dance to '9 to 5' gave me snark blue balls. You must release a YouTube video!
BobbyRiversTV Bobby Rivers
How many folks are Googling right now to see if the new Miss America ever clutched a 40 in a bag on a beach during summer vacation?
apresledeluge colleen
RT @crsbecker: I kind of want to tune in to Miss America, but the tweets on their own are probably even better w/o the context. // My new TV-watching philosophy. Thank you, internet. I never have to actually watch anything ever again.
andrealeigh203 Andrea Reiher
The Q&A was so short. Is that so nobody says down with gay marriage or maps, such as, Iraq, South Africa ?
TVKel Kel Kendrick
It is all down hill after the scary puppets. #MissAmerica Wake me up for #SNL

I'm not sure you should be smiling while you're singing "Papa Was a Rolling Stone." #AndWhenHeDiedAllHeLeftUsWasAlone#AndCrestStrips
BobbyRiversTV Bobby Rivers
I still can't believe that blonde girl w/ straight hair had nerve enough to sing 'Papa Was A Rolling Stone' on the #MissAmerica pageant.
BobbyRiversTV Bobby Rivers
Miss Kentucky is black. She'll get the Miss Congeniality Award so the white girls won't feel guilty.
SarahLovesTV Sarah Maines
Miss Arkansas's talent is ventriloquism. There was yodeling involved. I wish I was making this up. #MissAmerica
BobbyRiversTV Bobby Rivers
"I was going to tap dance to Dolly Parton's '9 to 5'." A #MissAmerica contestant just revealed that on live TV. Seriously.  
nancysfranklin Nancy Franklin
Oh, Miss New York, that dress has to be donated to Housing Works. Dreadful.
andrealeigh203 Andrea Reiher
"From the state that touches more than any of the others, but never inappropriately, I am Miss Wyoming." OH. MY. GOD.
andrealeigh203 Andrea Reiher
Who wrote these intros? Miss South Carolina called her state "the home of Vanna White." Is that ALL you got?
SarahLovesTV Sarah Maines
I just sat through 30 minutes of the Miss America pageant. I hate myself a little right now.

Jobs I'd happily do: reboot Doogie Howser. Episode 1: Doogie gets a text message while performing surgery. Dilemma: Should he read the message or finish surgery? Solution: Both. He's a TEEN GENIUS so he builds a contraption involving mirrors so he can read texts and perform surgery at the same time. Final scene: Patient bleeds out while he's playing with mirrors. Doogie tweets the lessons he's learned from this.

Happy 30th Birthday #HillStreetBlues ! You paved the way for a lot of us.

Is there a show on TV where dull men do stupid things, and then try to hide them from physically attractive women? Eh, who'd watch...
JBFlint Joe Flint
I'm not sure CBS is putting enough commercials into the game. Come on boys, step it up. Maybe you can get them in between downs!

Television writers are the plankton of the Golden Globes ecosystem.

Bob Newhart looks way old in that NCIS promo. Clearly trying to capture Betty White's MTM veteran mojo.

Direct TV Guy: "You have a big tree in the way of your dish. But at least you have shade in the summer." Not being so hot < "Louie" & porn

Raylan is trending! Great way to end #TCA, critics.
bigratsgoboom Erica H.
Who is Raylan without the hat? RT @MattMitovich: Elmore Leonard was NOT originally on board with the hat Raylan wears in #Justified.
EricIGN Eric Goldman
It's the end of #TCA and I feel... exhausted. But enlightened. With TV knowledge.
writerchica MariaElena Fernandez
#TCA has ended. Whew.

Today's take-away: If Hollywood was high school, FX's John Landgraf would be valedictorian. #tca
JimHalterman Jim Halterman
'Finally, someone who's really watching the show!' exclaims Olyphant when a critic compares Raylan/Boyd to Hope and Crosby.#FX #TCA
thesurfreport Surf Report Di
Walton Goggins didn't want to play Boyd as a racist stereotype - wants him to be the smartest guy in the room. #justified #tca #fx
sepinwall Alan Sepinwall
Olyphant: "I hate to say this, because I'd like to win awards one day, but it was really easy" to play Raylan.
EricIGN Eric Goldman
Asked about people naming their kids Raylan, Olyphant says, "That's a good question. Yesterday I was talking to my 3 year old, Raylan..."
Fowler_IGN Matt Fowler
After 20 minutes, someone works up the nerve to ask Tim Olyphant a question. He's intimidatingly handsome. #Justified #TCA #FX
writerchica MariaElena Fernandez
Margo Martindale (character address): "I'll be 60 this summer so it's great to be able to be a villain at my age." #FX #TCA #Justified
Memles Myles A. McNutt
If I see a single "Eww, standalones" response to news that there'll be some in Justified S2, I will commandeer Boyd's rocket launcher.
sepinwall Alan Sepinwall
Graham Yost says Justified s2 will have even more serialized eps, b/c fans liked them, but will still have standalone eps for new viewers.
tvoti Todd VanDerWerff
Elmore Leonard letter praises Tim Olyphant as best actor to play any of his characters yet. #tca #fx
JenniferArrow Jennifer Arrow
@JohnSolbergFX reading Elmore Leonard statement: "I think it's terrific. Last season amazed me...It's better than I could have written it.
thesurfreport Surf Report Di
.@JohnSolbergFX reading a missive from Elmore Leonard, who is not here, but he loves what Yost & writers have done with #Justified.#fx
writerchica MariaElena Fernandez
#Justifed panel coming up. #FX saved best for last. Love me some Raylan & Boyd! #TCA

I love that there's an actress named "Fiona Gubelmann." Part of me hopes it's a stage name.

HitFixDaniel Daniel Fienberg
David Zuckerberg calls "Wilfred" a "fever dream." A room of sick TV critics nod knowingly.
dloehr David J. Loehr  
@tvoti We don't talk about Calvin and Hobbes.
tvoti Todd VanDerWerff
So if Wilfred is Fight Club, does that mean it is also Calvin and Hobbes? #tca #fx
thesurfreport Surf Report Di
Zuckerman loved the surreality, dreamlike quality of australian original version of #Wilfred. Wanted American version to be more fever dream
BastardMachine Tim Goodman
Elijah Wood says his role in "The Hobbit" is very small. Tiny, even.
writerchica MariaElena Fernandez
#Wilfred exec producer Rich Frank: "Nothing unusual here. All dogs have Australian accents." #TCA #FX
BastardMachine Tim Goodman
"I kind of thought of it as Harvey meets Son of Sam," David Zuckerman, ex producer/writer, who also said it's like "Fight Club."
JimHalterman Jim Halterman
#Wilfred is based on the Australia series but Gann says this one is quicker...and thinks it should reach a wide audience. #FX #TCA
BastardMachine Tim Goodman
"While the world sees a dog, he sees a man in a dog suit, please welcome Elijah Wood." It's "Wilfred" time.
EricIGN Eric Goldman
.@LouisCK hates TV that only gets a "it works. It's pretty good" reaction. Says, "That's a terrible goal!" #TCA
EricIGN Eric Goldman
When @JohnSolbergFX says we can do a #Louie set visit if we'd like, @LouisCK instantly replies, "They're invited to the set?!" #TCA
sepinwall Alan Sepinwall
CK grows to hate his face and voice as he works on the show. "Once I'm editing episodes, I really want to vomit."
HitFixDaniel Daniel Fienberg
"I'm just a semi-interesting comedian. I'm not Brad Pitt or anything." Louis, on whether too much success might make him disingenuous.
tvoti Todd VanDerWerff
"Nobody wants to see me cum." Louis C.K. is making this a very good morning. #tca #fx

HitFixDaniel Daniel Fienberg
"Louie gets laid, but he never comes," Louis CK says of the show's basic theme/tone. Heh.
sepinwall Alan Sepinwall
.@louisck prefers casting comics to actors b/c they take direction better. "You can tell them 'You're fucking up the show'" w/o upsetting
BastardMachine Tim Goodman
"Hello. What can I do for you." Louis C.K., as he sits down on the TCA stage. Total dead pan. Very funny.
JenniferArrow Jennifer Arrow
Landgraf on SONS OF ANARCHY: End of season three is end of act one if you look at the entire series as a three-act play.
sepinwall Alan Sepinwall
Landgraf acknowledged some SOA s3 criticisms were valid, but feels it plays much better when watched all together, rather than weekly.
sepinwall Alan Sepinwall
Landgraf notes Mad Men critical acclaim has "taken it from a dismal ratings failure to ratings mediocrity." Critics are powerful!!!!
tvoti Todd VanDerWerff
Landgraf's analysis says Mad Men is literally the most acclaimed show in history of TV. #tca #fx
JimHalterman Jim Halterman
If you're not compassionate, says Landgraf, you become cynical. (In the TV biz? Nah......)
JimHalterman Jim Halterman
Single most important characteristic that a network boss should have? Landgraf says combo of toughness/compassion. #fx #TCA
BastardMachine Tim Goodman
Landgraf points out that one of the distinctions between HBO and FX is pacing. Very true. HBO's slow build works because people are paying.
tvoti Todd VanDerWerff
Guys, Lights Out didn't kill Terriers. You CAN like both! TV is not a zero sum game! #tca #fx
thefutoncritic thefutoncritic
FX at #TCA: Landgraf points to TOSH.0, THE GAME and TEEN MOM 2 as part of the reason for LIGHTS OUT's soft premiere.
thesurfreport Surf Report Di
Landgraf on #LightsOut: maybe we should've made a series about a zombie or sexy vampire trying to make a heavyweight comeback.#fx #tca
BastardMachine Tim Goodman
Last day of the Death March With Cocktails. FX is up now.
