Adult Swim Creative Director on ‘Limiting Female Projects’: ‘Women Don’t Tend to Like Conflict’

Mike Lazzo, who serves as vice president and creative director of Adult Swim, received criticism this week for reportedly not hiring women in creative positions because, as one anonymous former employee recalls him saying, “when you put women in the writers room, you get conflict, not comedy.”

Lazzo clarified his comments on reddit: “What I actually said was-women don’t tend to like conflict, comedy often comes from conflict, so that’s probably why we (or others) have so few female projects,” he wrote. “Nonetheless this was a dumb answer to a good question as Lucille Ball and Gilda Rather to Amy Poelher and Amy Schumer prove my statement a load of generalized nonsense.” A recent Buzzfeed report states that only one out of every 34 credits go to women on Adult Swim, the

'Hot in Cleveland' season finale: 5 reasons this show rules

'Hot in Cleveland' season finale: 5 reasons this show rules
TV Land’s Hot in Cleveland—a scripted bright spot in an otherwise reality-infused summer—signs off its first season tonight. I’m beyond sad to see it go! But that’s reason enough to revisit the show here for a quick moment. I previewed most of tonight’s tornado-infused episode (yes, they’re pulling a Desperate Housewives-style stunt!), and it’s full of the heart, laughs, and all the Betty White-in-a-sweat suit that you have come to love and expect so far.

Garner's Daughter Collects Book Advice For Women
Movie star James Garner's author daughter Gigi has collected health, beauty and career tips from Hollywood's biggest divas for a new book.

Girl Talk features anecdotes and contributions from Jamie Lee Curtis, Shari Belafonte, Lucie Arnaz and Joan Rivers as well as advice from leading ladies across America for the self-help bible.

Garner says, "Women are compassionate listeners who seem to know intuitively when to offer advice or merely a hand to hold or a shoulder to lean on.

"I gathered advice and insights from dozens of accomplished women across the country. Among these are an elementary school teacher, a prison warden, a company president, and a professional angler.

"In the book, women share with others their insights and tips on such topics as health, beauty, fashion, careers, emotional highs and lows, and even pets."

Actress Sally Struthers offers tips for remembering the names of people you meet, while singer Naomi Judd offers advice for removing stains.

Garner adds, "Girl Talk is like having your girlfriend over for coffee.

"My father taught me, by example as well as by words, that women are special creatures. As I worked on this book, I realised over and over again how true that is."
