At least it gets them out of the house: Hoping to prevent melees over cheap flat-screen TVs, the nation's retailers have deployed a number of tactics in their attempts to maintain order on Black Friday. With Black Friday now leaking into Thanksgiving Day, many bargain-hunters drink too much at dinner before heading off to the local Walmart.

By all means, next Thanksgiving it'll be perfectly OK to remind Uncle Ed, when he gets all wound up about politics, that he need to leave RIGHT NOW if he wants to score a cheap Kindle Fire. Just make sure he's got a designated driver, and bring bail money.

Inside the bubble: In an interview with Barbara Walters, Michelle Obama says she and the president treat their private quarters on the second floor of the White House as a "safe haven," particularly when daughters Malia and Sasha are home.

Presumably that means the White House staff dug out the owners manual for the First Family's TVs to figure out how to block the Fox News Channel.

This show used to be called "Matlock": HBO's latest program, "Getting On," is a satirical comedy set in a hospital geriatric ward.

Most of the show's actors are older than 70, which makes them just slightly too old to play teenagers on "Glee."
