Mr. Frey’s crimes against truthfulness were revealed in The Smoking Gun, a website associated with CourtTV, which sicced two reporters on his case for six weeks. (Ow, ow, ow.) The reporters discovered that Jimbo’s claims of having been a badass prior to his morally uplifting recovery were — well, not really true.

CBS trying webcasting for select TV shows

Welcome to the 21st Century, CBS:

CBS chairman Leslie Moonves said that the network is shopping their content around to the likes of Google, Yahoo, DirecTV, and others, as they contemplate ways to ride the wave. So far, however, they seem to be primarily interested in streaming content for the purposes of bringing in more traditional viewers.

While some had assumed that Google would be the natural choice for, well, anything, it looks like Yahoo has won this round. Yahoo is hosting a “CBS Comedy Bowl” as a holiday promotional, and they’re streaming two episodes each of Two and a Half Men and How I Met Your Mother. The content is being streamed in the 4:3 format, without advertising, using the Windows Media Video format. You cannot save the shows locally.
