Skype is a great addition, but you guys gotta get more questions in or expand the show a bit so you can. Right now it's slowing you down too much!

There is just to much chit chat and not enough answering questions, it is getting beyond boring. I actually did not watch today's segment and cut short several others.

TMZ live seriously is so boring now. You answer 5 questions and you interview a bunch of nobodies that no one cares about.

I trust your legal/moral opinion on my problem, Harvey. Our family dog, Duchess, a Golden Retriever/Chocolate Lab, bit our 18 month old son in the face. He was bleeding and we had to take him to the hospital with a puncture wound under his eye. He was being really rough with her. My husband wants to keep her but I want to give her away to someone without kids. She really is a good dog. What would you do?

Michael Richards was a vegan during the airing of seinfeld and in the "cartoon" episode was too busy yelling at his girlfriend for eating meat. this is a personally stated fact from a friend on the show.

I would like to see Harvey go without his cup for one night. I'd like to see if he can do that. Please Harvey!

Harvey was supposed to be shooting NBA 3 pointer. He was using the High School line:
Once the 3 point arc begins, the college and high school 3 point arc is 19.75 feet (19 feet 9 inches, or 237 inches).

The NBA distance is 23.75 feet (23 feet, 9 inches, or 285 inches). However, on the baselines, with a line drawn directly from the center of the rim to the sideline, the NBA distance is 22 feet (264 inches).

Alan Houston told Harvey he had to make an NBA 3 pointer and Harvey's was from highschool distance.
