On this week's episode of How Was Your Week?, the gorgeous firestarter SARAH SILVERMAN talks to Julie about her nude scene in Sarah Polley's new film, Garry Shandling's superb career advice, and how Jewish women's bodies are like the starchy foods we enjoy.
Then, Julie talks to Mike Albo about "The Junket," which is a new Kindle Single he wrote about his experience being fired as a freelancer with the New York Times. Also, Supermarket Sweep is mentioned. You miss that show!
Plus! Anderson Cooper goes to Costco! A dog runs off with somebody's half-face on that show that makes Julie sleepy! Memorializing Chaz Bono on DWTS! And Mario Lopez's Twitter Shame Spiral!
A hard-hitting and terrific show.

On this week's episode of How Was Your Week?, the fabulous MARTHA PLIMPTON chats with Julie over goblet mimosas about theater, the "Miss America moment" at the Emmys that she and Amy Poehler pulled off, and the ageless charm of Lee Majors.
Then, Julie grapples with the too-soon rising star that was Tonya Harding, ponders the end credits sequence from European Vacation, remembers this one counselor from camp who went on Nutrisystem, complains about Zombies, and gets angry that we're not still talking about the Herman Cain Pizza Song.
Plus! Julie recaps last night's first-ever HOW WAS YOUR WEEK LIVE, which went well! Martha talks about this one idiot who interrupted her performance of Hedda Gabler! And we memorialize Gaddafi briefly, only to quickly to move on to the way more important matter of whether or not Cat Stevens ever had "The Yusef Talk" with his children.
A dazzling and fascinating show!

On this week's episode of How Was Your Week?, total f'ing rock star AMY POEHLER joins Julie from her trailer on the set of Parks & Recreation to discuss how not to pose on the red carpet, the pressure of getting universally good press, and the gospel of birth order.
Then, the hilarious RICH FULCHER tells Julie about the DVD of his sketch show, Snuff Box, which is now available for sale in the US of A! Also discussed: his Mama Cass impression, how he lied to his parents about being a lawyer for a long time, and how a Chicago improv comedian became a shining star in the UK.
Plus! Julie grapples with the new Rosie O'Donnell TV show and reconciles her feelings around the all-black Steel Magnolias remake! Amy reveals her favorite TV show of all time, and talks about whether it's still important to her to be cool, now that she's 40 (hint: it's not as important as it was before)! A plea for more cat photos! And an extended, perhaps unecessarily long riff about leg-waxing.
An epic and fabulous show!

On this week's episode of How Was Your Week?, the fierce, gorgeous, iconic, and straight-up fabulous SANDRA BERNHARD talks to Julie about the audacity of acoustic guitars in synnagogues, hovering helicopters, the influence of "The King of Comedy," and her stint as a honor student at the Charles Ross School of Beauty.
Then, JEFFERY SELF joins us to discuss his encounter and follow-up email with his idol, BRETT BUTLER. It is a memorable and deeply funny story full of birds, cigars, loony turns of phrase, and regret.
Also, Julie speculates about the ghosts that invariably haunt Billy Bush's day-to-day life, discusses why it doesn't matter whether Nancy Grace farted on television the other day, and enjoys a special snack on a plane that was previously served to a famous actress.
