It happens every year — you get attached to some new TV show, only to learn five or six episodes in that it’s not coming back after its debut season. It’s the sad lifecyle of TV — if a show doesn’t make the desired ratings, it’s gotta walk the plank.

And don’t worry, the stories are “mostly really good.” I mean, he says they are, so they must be. [Craigslist]
Maybe you love Andy Samberg and co.’s weekly “Saturday Night Live” Digital Shorts. Maybe you don’t. Either way, you have gotta watch this clip if only to catch Jon Hamm thrusting his pelvis in Justin Bieber’s teenage face.
