Bill Simmons Says ESPN Tried To Sabotage Grantland, Wanted Him T
Bill Simmons, the former ESPN turned HBO personality known for mixing pop culture and entertainment news with his takes on sports, lobbed some strong words at his former employer in a podcast released Friday.

Simmons, who only recently came back in the public eye after being canned by ESPN earlier this year, said he believes that ESPN's management didn't do enough to help his website, Grantland, succeed. While Simmons chose his words at least somewhat carefully, it appears he is claiming that he was set up to fail.

"These guys weren't trying to make us succeed," he said on the show. "I th...

'Saturday Night Live' Season 41 Premiere Recap: Is Third Time Th
We are currently living in the Postmodern Miley Cyrus Age. A couple years ago we were in the Modern Era, with the public coming to grips over her burgeoning sexuality and appetite for controversy. Currently, her rebellion is accepted as a given, with her self-awareness tacitly acknowledged by most camps. Her rebellious streak remains, so now she is mostly rebelling against her own sensibilities. In this fashion she hosts the Season 41 premiere of “Saturday Night Live,” her third time. The new year is starting off relatively quietly, at one of its least transitional moments of the past few y...
