    Harmon just posted a statement on his blog titled, "Not That It Helps, But:" ... in which he admits to playing the tape for an audience of 150 strangers at an L.A. comedy club ... because he thought it would be funny.

    "I was airing my dirty laundry for a chuckle."

    But Harmon says he deeply regrets his decision ... explaining, "The giant mistake I made was involving someone else [Chevy] in that game of Russian roulette, someone that didnít have an opportunity to say 'yeah, hilarious, letís do this.'"

    Harmon continues, "That was a dumb, unclassy, inconsiderate move on my part. Iím very sorry itís reflecting poorly on the show.

    Harmon says he's been paying attention to all of the critics who have been bashing him on Twitter ... and says, "Thirty people a day calling me an a**hole makes me know and feel, in my heart, that I am an a**hole. Iím a real ďcustomer is always rightĒ kind of guy in that regard."

    We reached out to Chevy to see if he accepts the apology -- so far, no word back.

    Now, with today's release of a Chevy Chase rant making its way around the entertainment/tabloid shows, I am beginning to agree with you.

    Re: Television Random, Random Scripted/NonScripted

    I'm looking forward to the preview of "Don't Trust The B in Apt. 23" tonight. The early reviews have been strong, and they say both Krysten Ritter and James Van Der Beek are both very good.

    I think the last half hour sitcom that I loved was "Frasier". There has been stuff since that made me laugh, but nothing that I go out of my way to watch.
    Me and Flavia Pennetta, we got a thing going on

    Kirk I liked "Bones" this week. It got into territory that is kind of new for the show - the Michelle/Finn/Cam situation - and showed how hard it is for real as opposed to mythical working mothers.

    Extreme couponing. This was like the fuzzies episode of CSI awhile back. Left me shaking my head.

    Re: Television Random, Random Scripted/NonScripted

    Forbes magazine, ostensibly a business and finance magazine, nevertheless loves to calculate profits for tv shows, movie, and celebrities because they’re not dumb: They know it’s the only time the Internet actually pays attention to the publication. Their latest? Ranking the 10 Most Profitable TV Shows, based on the amount of ad revenue each show generates per half hour. None of it is particularly surprising, except for number nine: “Mad Love.” That show — which starred Jason Biggs, Judy Greer, Sarah Chalke, and Tyler Labine — was actually cancelled last May, but because of its time slot (between “How I Met Your Mother” and “Two and a Half Men”), it was able to generate a large amount of ad revenue (ironically, “How I Met Your Mother” is not actually among the top ten).

    The list basically tells you exactly why television is chock full of reality television, and why certain shows remain on the schedule despite having run their course creatively years ago. I would guess, also, that the list only includes the 2010-2011 season, otherwise I would imagine “The Voice” would be included on the top ten. As it is, and unsurprisingly, NBC has zero shows on the list.
    Here are TV’s 10 Most Profitable Shows.

    1. “American Idol” ($6.64 million per half hour)
    2. “The X-Factor” ($5.5 million per half hour)
    3. “Two and a Half Men” ($3.24 million per half hour)
    4. “Glee” ($2.8 million per half hour)
    5. “Grey’s Anatomy” ($2.75 million per half hour)
    6. “Dancing with the Stars” ($2.72 million per half hour)
    7. “Desperate Housewives” ($2.61 million per half hour)
    8. “Big Bang Theory” ($2.75 million per half hour)
    9. “Mad Love” ($2.59 million per half hour)
    10. “Modern Family” ($2.13 million per half hour)

    Did anyone see HBO's "Veep" with Julia Louise Dreyfus? I really liked it. I LOL'd a number of times. And I love her.

    I don't have HBO but am planning to watch it online. When I realized it was from Armando Iannucci (who wrote In the Loop), I knew I had to watch, if only to learn new cusswords

    LOL.

    I've never hear of Armando Ianucci (or In the Loop for that matter), but if this is indicative of his other stuff, I'd be a fan. Really quite funny and smart.
