Just thought we’d let you know that, starting tonight, our mothership, WHYY, is airing a series on the "Pioneers of Television." First episode up: Funny Ladies. It’ll feature Mindy Kaling, Cloris Leachman, Tina Fey, Joan Rivers, Susie Essman, Amy Sedaris, Sarah Silverman, Bea Arthur, Phyllis Diller and Betty White. Oh yes. Good stuff.
