Best. Lesbian. Week. Ever. (August 17, 2007)

COME HERE, GO AWAY PART DEUX
Comedy Central’s The Daily Show did a very funny segment about Logo’s
recent Presidential Forum
this week which included poking fun at Melissa
Etheridge
, a scene from Caddyshack, and a lot of golf:

That (fake) scene of Melissa yelling "I’m gay" when Bill Clinton
is being sworn in makes me laugh every time.

I think this statement from Jon Stewart about the tenor of the forum pretty
much sums it up: "The candidates were trying to reassure the gay community
how much they support them, while reassuring the country that they don’t completely
support them." Sadly, they’re still better than the alternatives.

GLAAD AWARDS COMPETITION GETS GAYER! PROBABLY NOT
LESBIANER.

LGBT media companies like Logo and here! will now
be allowed
to submit their shows for consideration for the annual GLAAD
Media Awards; previously the competition was limited to shows and movies produced
by mainstream media companies only.

What does that mean for AfterEllen.com readers? Pretty much nothing, since
lesbian shows and movies never actually win any
of the GLAAD awards anyway. Now we just have a bigger pool of gay male shows
to lose out to.

VERONICA MARS‘ MAC AND LILY FIND LOVE ON BIG LOVE?
A number of readers have let me know this week about the relationship between
Heather (Tina Majorino) and Sarah (Amanda Seyfried) on HBO’s polygamy drama
Big Love.
I haven’t seen much of the show myself, but from
what I’ve read
, the friendship between the two girls has been laced with
sexual undertones for awhile now, although it may be more a case of unrequited
love on Heather’s part. If something romantic is going to develop between the
two, it better happen soon, since there are only two episodes left in the second
season.

Here are a few photos of the happy couple:

Now if only they’d cast Kristen Bell as the mysterious new
girl who moves into the neighborhood and creates a Big Love triangle …

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
Ellen is filming
a variety show special
for TBS which will air Nov. 18, and the first
guest on her talk show this season will be Hillary Clinton.

Adaptations of two more Sarah Waters novels, The Night Watch and Affinity,
will be broadcast on British television next year.

After nine episodes, Girltrash is on hiatus.
We’ll let you know when there’s a return date.

In case you missed it, we launched a new South of Nowhere video blog hosted this week by Karman Kregloe and Jill Bennett
that has now officially been named We’re
Getting Nowhere
(first suggested by Lanna J
— thanks Lanna!). Look for new episodes of the vlog every Tuesday. (You can now find the link to this and other video blogs in a new “Video” section listed in the menu above the search box on the left.)

In Saturday morning’s edition of She
Made Me Watch This!
, Lori and I will provide our own mini-review of
South of Nowhere so far this season, along with our take on this week’s episodes of
Damages, The Closer and The Best Years, plus a review of
the pilot for Lipstick Jungle (aka Most. Annoying. Pilot. Ever.). Then on Sunday in our
second vlog segment — a Michelle Pfeiffer
retrospective! Because she ain’t no one’s trophy.

That’s it for this week! Check back next Friday for another edition of
Best. Lesbian. Week. Ever.
