Three quick thoughts

* Lady Gaga needs to get over herself.

* The "Jeopardy" game featuring the IBM computer Watson makes for interesting science but terrible television. In particular, the first of the three broadcasts (which aired last night) came across as a half-hour commercial for IBM rather than a game show.

* Why all the fascination among restaurants and TV cooking shows with the word "chipotle"? Well, I guess it's more appealing than calling it what it is: "smoke-dried jalapeno."

Ratings were quite well. It moved the show to number 2 behind American Idol and Two and a half men. You can read more here http://www.deadline.com/tag/jeopardy-ibm-watson/
