    Interesting the male/female ratio. Who would have thought that so many women watched the League or Russell Brand.

    Last night’s Sunny was hilarious.

  • JP

    Sunny is back after a lackluster season last year! Both episodes were great.

  • Kate

    Do you see The League getting another season? And I was hearing rumors that this was Sunny’s last season, is that true?
