That’s all, folks!

giphyRunning Late wrapped up Season 4 last night at Littlefield, with one of the loosiest, goosiest shows on record. But gaddamn was it a fun one. The creators of some of the most viral tumblrs of 2013 including Anna Drezen & Todd Briscoe of How May We Hate You?, Ryan Nethery of The Worst Room, and Jason Mustian of Pornhub Comments on Stock Photos showed off their blogs, veteran actor Josh Pais shared some tales from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles set, Simon Rich & Farley Katz explained their latest archeological discovery (available now on Amazon), Amber Tamblyn admitted her deep, sexual longing for Marty and was joined by her grandfather/Eugene Mirman to teach Scott her famous Tamblyn Family Eggnog Recipe, and comedian Damien Lemon brought down the roof one last time, resulting in scores of injuries and 4 confirmed deaths.

Running Late now embarks upon a brief hiatus before returning in a BIG way in 2014. In the meantime, Scott asks that you please respect his privacy as he spends the next three months alphabetizing his baseball card collection.

HAPPY JRUE HOLIDAYS!!!
