David Letterman's Touching Tribute to Robin Williams: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-08-19 at 2.56.00 PM

On last night's (Monday's) Late Show, David Letterman appeared for the first time since the death of Robin Williams. Letterman delivered a touching tribute to the late comedian.

It begins with anecdotes of Williams' early comedy days, when Letterman and his peers were green with envy over his comedy chops. Letterman continues describing working professionally with Williams, especially how gracious and kind the actor was — he was easy to talk to on TV, and he would always help his friends, getting Letterman a role on Mork and Mindy sheerly out of kindness.

Letterman was shocked and saddened over Williams' passing. As Gossip Cop notes, Letterman said:

Beyond being a very talented man and a good friend and a gentleman, I’m sorry, like everybody else, I had no idea that the man was in pain, that the man was suffering... What a guy.

What To Watch This Week on TV: A New 'Doctor;' Max Silvestri Serves Laughs On 'The Feed' - VIDEO

— Foodies may already by familiar with Top Chef judge Gail Simmons and cheflebrity — Is that a thing? It’s a thing now. — Marcus Samuelsson. However, the real reason to tune into The Feed is for its third host, comedian Max Silvestri. The funnyman is a skilled stand-up comedian (check out his album, King Piglet), but he’s also hilariously recapped Top Chef for Eater.com (among other blogging turns). We would watch him on anything, but his brand of humor seems perfectly paired with this culinary talk/road show. Tune in for the series’ debut Thursday at 7 p.m. Eastern on FYI, a new lifestyle network from A&E.

'True Blood' RECAP - 'Love Is To Die' [Spoilers]

Screen Shot 2014-08-18 at 12.53.12 AM

I'm as happy as anyone to see that fan-favorite couple reunited on True Blood, but could the show have served up a more tepid, boring penultimate episode otherwise? 

How a season that started (loosely) with the premise of "Zombie Vampires" managed to not only thwart that potentially thrilling plotline, but also townsfolk uprisings, undead undead-daughters and homicidal ancient vampire sex goddesses is completely beyond me. Despite all of season seven's wild ideas, has anything really panned out? The first few times True Blood built up a big bad only to dispense with them without much fanfare felt like clever little twist. But once it became de rigueur for this show, it just got lazy.

Before we head into next week's series finale, let's discuss what little did happen in tonight's episode, AFTER THE JUMP ...
