Brokaw, Tom — During his commencement speech at an Ole Miss graduation last weekend heralded news anchor Tom Brokaw slighted the neighboring University of Alabama, telling the grads “If I were speaking at Alabama, I would have to use smaller words and shorter sentences.” Everyone had a good laugh at that and then Brokaw went on to explain to the Ole Miss graduates what sentences are.

Ghostbusters — Paul Feig’s much-skepticized reboot/revamp of Ghostbusters continues to meet with animosity, with the film’s trailer receiving nearly a half million YouTube dislikes and earning a place one the site’s least-liked videos of all time. To be fair, it’s not as much because of the female thing as much as it is that there’s a shot of Leslie Jones jumping into the crowd at a concert to crowd surf and not being caught, which is the single most overused joke in history for movies which have scenes that take place at concerts.

Schwimmer, David — Ex-Friends star David Schwimmer, currently starring in an AMC series where he plays a distraught sommelier, joined Late Night with Seth Meyers on Wednesday and told a story of his five year-old daughter’s affinity for sneaking sips of his beer.

Ãœber — Popular ride-sharing app Ãœber has announced its first self-driving car will take to the streets in Pittsburgh in the next few weeks, mapping data and testing its autonomous driving abilities.
