On This Week’s Show: Neil has finished his gallivanting, and he makes his triumphant return to the Magical Studio in the Sky, only to promptly put his foot in his mouth by comparing the harrowing days of the Sundance Film Festival to the war in Afghanistan. Kevin quickly saves the day by calling shenanigans on John Travolta for adopting his super-cool badass look, then puts his own foot in his mouth by suggesting that Kathryn Bigelow will win the Oscar because she’s a woman. Get ready to be offended, folks! The Fat Guys are back in action. (And by “action,” we mean “sitting their fat asses on the couch.”)
