#TheMerryWidow in #TheGoodWife

Song Damian Boyle character can't remember in "The Good Wife" "Whack-a-Mole" episode:

is from the operetta "The Merry Widow" waltz scene:

Also, in this episode, writers passive aggressively slam reddit w/ a scabbit spoof

and use a cockroach bug logo for their fake scabbit site clearly cribbing from reddit's little alien logo

Maybe CBS was torqued off  Reddit Co-Founder, Alexis Ohanian,  supported their competitor by making a cameo on a fake "Today Show" episode in Universal SyFy Channel's "Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!" film: 

Ironically leftwing CBS seems simpatico with Rush Limbaugh who frequently slams what he calls "little tech bloggers", as in his February 27, 2015 "Ignorance, Arrogance, Hubris: Millennial Tech Bloggers Applaud Losing Their Freedom to So-Called Net Neutrality"

"You know, I think I'm gonna have to stop my hobby reading the tech blogs, 'cause I just got profoundly depressed last night.  The problem is, when you read the tech blogs, you can't avoid their political comments as well.  I mean, it's all thrown in the mix.  You know, I read the tech blogs 'cause I want to know the latest on the gadgets I like.  I want to hear the latest rumors on what's coming with the things I care about.  And in order to get to that, you have to read all the other posts that these people put up, and it's just depressing, folks. But the ignorance coupled with arrogance and hubris from some of these tech bloggers on the FCC's vote yesterday on net neutrality, one of the most disturbing comments -- and it disturbs me because these are young people, the Millennials, and they think they know everything, like all young people do.  I mean, there's nothing new about that and I'm well aware and familiar with it. They think they know everything. They've got a lot of arrogance, a lot of hubris, a lot of conceit.  And they don't know diddly-squat.  They are supporting the erosion of their own liberty and they think they're doing the exact opposite. "

and the "sewer of twitter" as in his August 11, 2015 "Mrs. Clinton Denounces Internet Hate (Which She Funds)"

"This is the woman who got together with George Soros and helped fund the creation of Media Matters for America, which is largely responsible for all of the sewers on Twitter and all these campaigns designed to damage, destroy, whatever they disagree with.  There isn't anything civil about it.  All of this lack of civility is a Democrat Party tactic.  It is part of the community organizers' owners manual.
It's part of the operating system of community organizers, the lack of civility is precisely that.  I mean, Mrs. Clinton, AFL-CIO, the SEIU? These are the people that show up at Tea Party groups and actually begin engaging in physical violence!  It is not a matter of people hiding on the Internet saying things that they wouldn't say in public.  They show up, and they say these things in public, and they put their fists behind it sometimes.  I am dead serious. The lack of civility on the Internet? You can trace it back to things."
FYI, to illustrate Rush's point about the violence the left employs to suppress views different from their own, a video posted by southfloridateaparty "SEIU Attack Black Tea Party Patriot and Tampa Town DNC Slaps Man"

All in all, it's perhaps not all that ironic that CBS and the EIB network both end up on the same side of the anti social media argument, since both CBS and Limbaugh presumably wish to protect their respective broadcasting turf against new media.
