Transcript for Mathematicians Declare Tyrion Lannister Main Character of 'Game of Thrones'
So, "Pop news," but the desk looks a bit like a war zone because we've been destroying it with peanuts and cracker jacks and Rachel has a hot dog for "Pop news." So let's see how that goes. That was a good move on my part. Reflux. Cotton candy. You guys just munch. Have some snacks. Enjoy first up, Dan you'll like this. "Game of thrones" fans know that winter is coming but one thing has divided avid binge-watchers is the debate over who is the main character in the epic fantasy saga. Jon snow. Peter dinklage. Okay, well, thankfully Dan and a bunch of mathematicians figured it out. A professor crunching the Numbers on the social networks of westeros and the winner is the character portrayed by peter dinklage. Nice work there. Brilliant. He is indeed.

Waylon, the executive assistant to Mr. Burns will come out as gay. It gives homer a chance to meddle where he probably shouldn't by playing matchmaker and helping Smithers find Mr. Right.

The pop singer, a member of her squad which was Victoria secret lily Aldridge and the model's daughter were clearly seen enjoying themselves but look at the guy sitting behind Taylor. See him right there. Stone-faced. Cool as a cucumber. Unfazed by one of the drops on the radiator spring as ride, I've ridden several times. It is pretty awesome but fans boast Taylor and Lilly are getting a huge kick out of this photo right now because they both -- That's epic. Like really. That guy is earning his pay. Would you really want a bodyguard that is going -- I mean, with these two gals and the little gal. Smile, you're at the happiest place on Earth.
