Mostly known for his extravagant intros on Monday Night Football, Country legend Hank Williams Jr. hit the Fox & Friends show via satellite from Nashville earlier today and casually compared President Obama to Hitler. Yes, that Hitler. After Steve Doocy, Gretchen Carlson and Brian Kilmeade invited him to vent his political mind during the show, ol’ Hank surprised even the folks over at Fox with his radical opinions . "It's like Hitler playing golf with [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu," Williams said to the Fox & Friends hosts. "Obama! Biden! The Three Stooges." Gretchen Carlson eventually asked Williams if he really meant to link Obama’s political actions to that of Adolf Hitler and the country star did not stand down one iota. "You used the name of one of the most hated people in all the world to describe, I think, the president," Carlson said to Hank. "That's true," Williams responded. "But I'm telling you like it is." Unfortunately for Hank, following these statements, it was announced that ESPN is going to pull Williams’ famous track featured in the MNF intro. ESPN stated via CBS: "We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and as a result we have decided to pull the open from tonight’s telecast." This is going to make one hell of a country tune.

After years of online gossip, Arrested Development fans the world over can now start celebrating because the show is now officially set to return to television for a fourth season after the show's tragic 2006 cancellation. During a reunion that took place over the weekend at the New Yorker Festival with the entire cast, show creator Mitch Hurwitz shocked fans in attendance with the extremely exciting news the comedy world has been asking for. "Just creatively, I have been working on the screenplay for a long time and found that as time went by, there was so much more to the story," Hurwitz explained. "In fact, where everyone's been for five years became a big part of the story.” Hurwitz went on to tell the audience what the fourth season will entail. Hurwitz stated: "So in working on the screenplay, I found even if I just gave five minutes per character to that back story, we were halfway through the movie before the characters got together.” This is the best news I’ve heard in a very long time.
