I wrote about NBC's "Marry Me" — and about my wish that I could have seen some more episodes beyond the very premise-y, very grating pilot episode — this morning. Now it's your turn. For those of you who watched tonight, what did you think? Did you find the opening scene hilarious or did it turn you off? Did you come out of the pilot liking Annie and/or Jake? How did you feel about the friends and assorted parents? If you're a "Happy Endings" fan, how did the experience of the two compare? And will you watch again?
Have at it. I will try to check back in again sometime in the next few weeks. Hopefully, I'll like upcoming episodes more.

Ex-NBC exec on “Freaks and Geeks”: "I absolutely hated canceling this particular show”
Garth Ancier, who was NBC’s Entertainment president, gives his take on Seth Rogen confronting him at “Saturday Night Live” over the weekend. "It was clear from the very beginning that 'Freaks and Geeks' had great writing from Judd and Paul Feig, and a tremendous cast,” Ancier wrote on Facebook. "This was an awful decision that has haunted me forever. But the show was consistently NBC's least-viewed. For what it is worth, I have watched all of the episodes over and over again on Netflix, and asked myself what I could have done better to save it."

Mena Suvari to star in WEtv’s “South of Hell”
Eli Roth is among the producers on the horror series in which Suvari plays a demon-hunter-for-hire.
Prince will perform and Chris Rock will host the new Nov. 1 episode of "Saturday Night Live."
Here are the various reasons why you already know this is good news.
1.This is Prince's first televised appearance in support of his two (2!) new albums, "Plectrumelectrum" and "Art Official Age." Prince doesn't just play for anybody, so you better bet he's got some tricks up his sleeve.
2. Prince played "SNL" in 1981 and 2006. YouTube may not let you revisit it, but it was awesome both times. He is due back.
3. Prince also happens to be one of the best performers to play the Super Bowl Halftime Show ever. You know he can play to a television national audience, on a big or small stage.
4. Chris Rock interviewed Prince back in 1997, you know he brings out a little something special in the Purple One.
5. Chris Rock loves Prince. "SNL" benefits from an appreciation society, that's how you get Prince having fun. (Look to Dave Chappelle, Prince and "Breakfast Can Wait.")
6. Prince and Chris Rock hang out. Chris Rock describes this, in part, in this bit with Jerry Seinfeld for "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" (fast forward to the 8-minute mark). They are up to something.
7. Rock dressed up as Prince in "Grown Ups 2." Prince even tweeted that image today. There's gotta be a revenge plot.
8. Rock has a new movie, "Top Five," due on December, and it's apparently one of his greatest projects to date. If he is peak form, then we are all in for a little treat.
9. This will be Rock's second time hosting "SNL" and dude's been through the Oscars hosting gig now, this should all be easy peas.
As previously reported, Jim Carrey and Iggy Azalea are hosting and music guesting (respectively) on Oct. 25's "SNL."
There's the mischievous horrormeister Sam Raimi, the blockbuster wizard Sam Raimi, and the pensive character-observing Sam Raimi. The latter doesn't get enough work — welcome to Hollywood, folks! — but sturdy relationships from the "Spider-Man" director's past may put a high-profile, awards-friendly project at the front of his "to do" queue. Fans of the "A Simple Plan" and "The Gift," rejoice.
It's probably been said too much at this point, but 2014, at least in terms of potential Oscar nominees, has been very thin for lead actresses. Call it a byproduct of an industry that doesn't seem overly concerned with stories featyring strong female characters (despite the notion that they don't make money having been summarily dispelled), or certainly with finding females in key creative positions. It's simply slim pickings this year.
One of the major problems facing DC in adapting their characters to the screen is just how many times they have completely overhauled some of them. Case in point: there is some controversy this week after producer Charles Roven explained which version of the origin story of Wonder Woman will be featured when the character makes her debut in next year's "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice."
Basically, they're making her Thor. This is the version of the character who is part of what's called the DC New 52 Universe. She is a demigod, and her father is Zeus. That's pretty much it.
Amy Poehler details her past use of cocaine, mushrooms and ecstasy
In her memoir “Yes, Please," Poehler writes about her drug use as a 20-something: “I tried cocaine, which I instantly loved but eventually hated,” she writes, adding: "Cocaine is terrific if you want to hang out with people you don’t know very well and play Ping-Pong all night. It’s bad for almost everything else…The day after cocaine is rough.”
