Some of you are asking why there is a mid winter break featuring a week of Comedy instead of new shows. It could have something to do with the crew wanting to spend a winter break with their families and unwind and renew their energies to prepare for the rest of the season. 
George is not resting this week at all, but working on a film project he will tell you about when he gets back from overseas.
