Dating ain't easy in these modern times. You've got OKCupid profiles to worry about, Facebook messages to come up with, Google searches to do, online chatting while at work and all the texting, sexting, snapchats, read receipts, pokes, likes, etc. to read through. Dating with access to the Internet is a multilayered cake that you need to attack from all angles.
And that's not even mentioning your idiot friends' dating advice! What happened to a good ol' fashioned dinner and a movie?
The rest of this week's top comedy videos, including James Franco and Zach Galifianakis, movie pitches and Ryan Gosling taking a break from acting, can all be found over at Splitsider.
Other highlights from the week in comedy:
- NBC, CBS, and Fox announced their new fall sitcoms. Andy Samberg and Mike Schur's Fox cop show, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, is the most promising of the bunch. NBC unfortunately passed on SNL writer/stand-up John Mulaney's pilot.
- Parks and Recreation got renewed for a sixth season, and NBC officially canceled most of its comedies (Go On, Whitney, 1600 Penn, Up All Night, and Guys with Kids). Community's chances look good, much to the chagrin of Community fans.
