Emmy, Box Office, Yankee Stadium and SNL

Emmy Winners - The Emmys where held today and people one stuff. 30 Rock scored the top prize of best comedy, actor and actress. John Adams a record 13 wins. The Daily Show took home best variety program and Colbert Report for best writing. Mad Men won best drama. The awards, as usual, favored movie actors and the elder actor statesmen.

Box Office Weekend - Estimates are in and Lakeview Terrace (slow but entertaining) took the top spot with $15.6M. Burn after Reading (utter crap) took in $11.3M. My Best Friend's Girl scored third with $8.3M, followed by Igor ($8M), and Righteous Kill ($7.7). Ghost Town (good movie, recommend) debuted at a pathetic $5.2M.

Goodbye to Yankee Stadium - Tonight the last game ever was held at The House Ruth Built. The Yankees won. Click the link for a review of its history and greatest moments.

McCain Approves This Lie - A hilarious skit from SNL that makes fun of McCain and his campaigns wiliness to lie regularly about Obama in a by any means necessary bid for the Presidency.
