Fox has always done a good job of airing reality game shows that appeal to the lowest common denominator. But this week they took an ad for a future "Moment of Truth" episode to Ancient Roman levels.

I'm sure this robotic dog is a technological breakthrough and a huge accomplishment for its engineers at Boston Dynamics, but couldn't they have at least added puppy ears or a tail or something? Anything to keep this thing out of my nightmares for the next week?
Finally this week, whatever hope is left for the Clinton campaign will be shattered after this inspiring music video makes its way around the interwebs. If Barack Obama doesn't pick this as his official inaugural theme song, he doesn't deserve to be our next president.
