On disrespect: “I have been in relationships where a man has disrespected me, and I don’t need to be friends with that man anymore. I don’t want to be the one going, ‘I’m cool, because I’m friends with all my exes.’ There’s a reason why you’re called an ex. I crossed you off my list. Moving on. You cross a line, you need to know that you’re going to walk this earth knowing that there’s an individual who has no respect for you.”  Zoe Saldana for Marie Claire Magazine, August 2014

On September 17, David Letterman was the first comedian to return to the air. His opening monologue has been called ”one of the purest, most honest and important moments in TV history.” Toward the end of his remarks, he gave voice to the utter confusion many Americans felt: “We’re told they were zealots fueled by religious fervor. Religious fervor. And if you live to be a thousand years old, will that make any sense to you? Will that make any goddamn sense?” The full clip of Letterman’s opening remarks can be seen here and the full transcript is here.

MuggleNet Blog Book Review: Showrunners: The Art of Running A TV Show by Tara BennettWhen watching television shows, we usually get so swept up in the story that we don’t stop to think about all the work that goes on behind the scenes.
