We watch... so you don't have to.

Thanks to Steve Carell

So at yesterday's Television Critics Association award ceremony, Steve Carell of The Office quite rightly won the award for best actor in a comedy.

That's not the weird part. The weird part is that in his acceptance speech, he quoted our own Peter Ko:

I have stood in a freezer full of dead people at the morgue. I have seen a man's scalp pulled back over his nose. I've even seen 35 minutes of Ellen DeGeneres's "Mr. Wrong." But I can now honestly say that until Steve Carell's turn in the premiere of Over the Top, I have never known true horror.

We love you, Steve. We loved you on The Daily Show. We love The Office. "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," which you wrote with another one of our faves, Judd Apatow? Digged it.

So we're glad you can laugh about Over the Top, now that it's in your rear-view mirror. As for our review, we think it's still pretty damned funny. Funnier than Over the Top, that's for sure.

Why, come to think of it, at the time your colleague Stephen Colbert wrote to us to say, "I would like to congratulate you on your Review of Over the Top. That is some good writing." High praise. And as we all know, Colbert's not one to say things he doesn't truly believe.
