    Melissa McCarthy Hosts SNL

    I'm traveling abroad so I can't access some of the clips that look so great, but I will put in links to sites that you can access in case you missed the show. From posts on the blogosphere it looked like she kicked butt, was fearless and the good news is the ratings were up from last week.

    Melissa McCarthy Covers The Hollywood Reporter

    This brings a very big smile to my face. Fresh off her Emmy win, McCarthy will host SNL this weekend. This is really her moment. But it's not like it will be downhill for her.

    Bridesmaids is a Big Fat Hit!

    Women took up the mantle and went to see the film. The gross was about $24.5 (UPDATE - $26.2) million about $10 million more than predicted. I don't know who does the predicting on these types of films but they missed the boat on this one big time. I know they wanted to keep expectations down because the mantra was (and seems always is with a film about women) that this is unprecedented and there is nothing to compare it to.
