Arrested Development

Don't normally watch it, but last night's episode was one of the most clever half-hours of TV I've seen in a while - they deftly referenced the program's dire straits vis a vis the Bluth family's own difficulties. Not since mid-’90s The Simpsons has there been such meta-network context nabob-ery - well done, Mitchell Hurwitz. Good luck selling your (apparently) sinking ship to ABC or Showtime.
