  • Daniel Radcliffe: 10 points. Saturday Night Live: 0

    Legendary (and recently dried up) late-night sketch show “Saturday Night Live” ushered in 2012 with a bang. And by “bang,” I mean hardcore suckiness.

  • Iran So Far: 2011 edition

    Thursday at the U.N., Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad addressed the General Assembly, spewing his typical anti-U.S., anti-West and anti-Israel nonsense. Different year, same rhetoric.
