Ask someone to describe nine-time Emmy nominee Ricky Gervais and they might mention his scathing stints as a Golden Globe host, his take-no-prisoners standup comedy routines or his role as the clueless, often thoughtless boss on the original British version of The Office.

Getting On, HBO's off-kilter new comedy series, is about nurses and doctors working in a female geriatric care unit at a California hospital - not exactly the sort of setting that would seem to inspire humor. Still, the show has genuinely funny moments, even while it remains realistic about its environment.

The Stiller Family
I want Anne Meara and Jerry Stiller to hit the red carpet and interview stars at this year's Oscars. I think they are fabulous and frankly, I don't know why they are not already a go-to team for this sort of thing. They are Hollywood icons.  They are hilarious. And they produced one of the best things going in show business: Ben Stiller.
