9/11 hero's mom offended by Daly joke

The mother of a 9/11 hero has reportedly taken Carson Daly to task for his gay joke.

"The Voice" host apologized Wednesday for a joke he made that morning on his syndicated radio show regarding the passengers who recently subdued a JetBlue pilot.

"Most of them were on their way to some sort of security conference in Las Vegas...it was like a bunch of...well-trained dudes, thank God," Daly said. "With my luck, it would be like, 'This is the flight going to [the gay pride parade] in San Francisco...'Uh, we're headed down to Vegas for the floral convention.'"

Pillow fort wars on 'Community'

Troy and Abed's bromance hit rough waters in Thursday night's episode of "Community."

After their successful blanket fort last season, they decided to try a pillow fort, even though it is a more difficult task.

Trouble started to brew when Dean Pelton saw it as an opportunity to get a world record for Greendale, and Vice Dean Laybourne convinced Troy that he is just like Inspector Spacetime's sidekick: a lackey who follows Abed's orders.
