Who can't get enough historical pope drama? Showtime, that's who.
The network picked up The Borgias for a second season, it was announced Monday.
Amid all the Easter dinners and visiting, prime-time television tried to lure viewers with a mishmash of first-run episodes, specials and repeats, and CBS won the night in total viewership — helped by the new Hallmark Hall of Fame movie Beyond the Blackboard.
First a disclaimer: Lady Gaga, like pop music, is great when she isn't taking herself too seriously. However, in the four minutes below, she takes herself extremely seriously.
Here is a list of the particularly ridiculous things in this extended scene from the intro to HBO's broadcast of Lady Gaga Presents The Monster Ball Tour: Live at Madison Square Garden (Saturday, May 7, 9/8c)...
Tim Robbins, Diane Lane
