Things We Saw Today: Stephen Colbert Mocks MSNBC Anchor’s Meltdown With a Meltdown of His Own
A leaked tape of MSNBC anchor Lawrence O’Donnell having several angry outbursts while filming went viral this week.
A better anchorman and a better person would’ve had a better reaction to technical difficulties. I’m sorry.

On The Late Show, Colbert teased O’Donnell that he was showing “solidarity” by leaking his own outtakes, which are predictably hilarious.
- Vampire Diaries star Ian Somherhalder “joked” about how he flushed his wife Nikki Reid’s birth control down the toilet because he wanted to start a family. No one was amused. Listen, I will always love Damon Salvatore but Ian Somherhalder can bite me. (via Allure)
- Battle of the Sexes doesn’t go deep enough into the tragic nature of Billie Jean King’s relationship with Marilyn Barnett. (via Newsweek)
- Neil Gaiman will voice a character in The Simpsons‘ annual “Treehouse of Horror” episode that parodies his Coraline. (via Slashfilm)
- The brilliantly funny Kumail Nanjiani is slated to host Saturday Night Live this fall, and there’s some other Gal hosting another episode that you may have heard of. Honestly, give me ALL of the Wonder Woman sketches. And if Gal feels like bringing back singing Chris Pine for a cameo, I am here for that.

Happy imminent weekend! I hope the world doesn’t end tomorrow. What’d you see today?
