 Welcome to "From the Hip" episode 7, in which:

  • We discuss Empire.  (What, you thought since it's over for the moment, we wouldn't talk about it? Think again.)
  • I crack myself up.
  • I say, "If you give me the choice up front, your chances might be 50-50."
  • Tawnell says, "We have to talk about Tyler Perry's The Haves and the Have-nots. ... Why is it dragging ..."
  • You'll get plenty of notes on Scandal. No shade.

We're having fun, fun, fun. Tell us what you're watching, reading and thinking about so we can watch, read and think about it, too.  Hashtag #FromtheHip and join the conversation on Twitter.
