[ light laughter ] but sometimes there's like a weird one in there with a pound sign in front of it. they call it hash tag. like #what not to do on a first date or #remember second grade. and then people on twitter respond to them and give their two cents about what not to do on a first date or some funny memory about second grade. well, last week, we did something cool. during the show, i started my own hash tag, called "why don't they make that?" and you guys, the audience, tweeted out thousands and thousands of weird inventions that you'd like to see. and we showed a bunch of your tweets on the show, and it was really fun. so i thought tonight we'd try it again. i'm going to tweet out something right now. a super power that i'd like to have.
i will type in now "the ability to float to work. [ light laughter ] not fly. it's like air skating."

[ light laughter ] that's right, the big premiere is this thursday on mtv. let's take a look at the pros and cons.
pro -- this season, the cast leaves their hometown to go to miami. con -- "it's like frickin' lebron james over here!" [ laughter ] pretty much. pro -- "the jersey shore" girls are like florida's new "golden girls." con -- more orange than golden. [ laughter ] if you want to get technical about it. [ applause ] pro -- there's going to be a lot of fighting and a lot of jacuzzi action. con -- it's like being on a date with mel gibson. [ audience ohs ] [ laughter ] that's what happens. pro -- the cast members have names like snooki, j-woww and the situation and somehow managed to get famous. con -- you called yourself the banginator for a weekend in college and you still can't live it down. [ laughter ] that's a lame nickname. >> steve: that's not good. that is not a good weekend. >> jimmy: pro -- snooki got rid of her signature big hair poof. con -- she is now only three feet tall, in heels.
[ laughter ] she's a very small person. pro -- we might see sammi and ronnie rekindle their romance and get married. con -- we might hear, "with this nipple ring, i thee wed." [ audience groans ] [ laughter ] it's very romantic. pro -- get ready to beat that beat, south beach style. con -- i have no idea what that means. [ laughter ] >> steve: like the diet? >> jimmy: pro -- angelina is back this season. con -- who cares? [ laughter and applause ] i forgot about her from the first one. i didn't even remember. she was in, she left. pro -- mtv carries the show on over 30 countries worldwide. con -- some of those countries have nuclear weapons. [ laughter ] that's not good. and finally -- pro -- the situation coined the popular phrase "gtl" which refers to his pre-clubbing ritual of gym, tan, laundry. con -- his morning-after ritual
is "omg an std." [ laughter ] i don't know what that means either. and that's our "pros and cons." we'll be right back with a new episode of "seventh floor west." come on back.

[ laughter ] he works in the costume department now, and he's getting his revenge by dressing me like an idiot and causing all kinds of trouble around the office. well, let's see what kind of drama is unfolding this week. pull up a bean bag chair and join us for "seventh floor west." ♪ >> jimmy: previously on "seventh floor west" -- i had thought things between me and miles were going well. miles is cool now. the past is the past.
but some of my friends weren't entirely convinced. >> i'm telling you, that guy is nuts. >> jimmy: and now with suspicious things starting to happen around the office.

[ laughter ]
>> jimmy: do you think miles sabotaged the writer's meeting? >> i'm telling you, man, that guy is bad news. he's like a gremlin. ♪ he's like a poltergeist. [ laughter ] ♪ >> jimmy: i'm sorry i'm late, everybody. sorry. it just took me a little bit longer to put my suit on for the show than normal. but now i got it on and i'm here. i'm ready for this meeting. >> his outfits keeps getting worse and worse. >> he looks like a gay rodeo clown.

[ laughter ] so bottom line is seventh floor west has to appoint a fire warden who's going to be in charge in case of an emergency. so who is it going to be?

[ laughter ] so -- your son gets to play with the chickens and raise them? >> he plays with them. he catches them. because at night, you have to put them back in the coup because of the coyote and the foxes. and the other thing we found out is, apparently, if human beings urinate around the perimeter of the chicken coup, it keeps the
coyotes at bay. apparently, they don't like human urine. so my son has taken on this task. [ laughter ] [ scattered applause ] with full gusto, and he is peeing his way around this -- >> jimmy: he's 4 years old? >> yeah, yeah. >> jimmy: that's awesome. that's his first job. >> yeah, he takes it -- [ laughter ] >> jimmy: he gets up? >> yeah. >> jimmy: what is it, he gets up and just drinks a lot? >> he drinks a lot. he saves his pee for the chicken coup. yeah, yeah. >> that are makes me laugh. that's awesome. now, you're a great actress. you do a lot of intense, kind of, dramas a lot. but you're also a comedy? >> yeah. >> jimmy: and i heard that you -- one of your favorites is judd apatow. you love him? >> i worship judd apatow. >> jimmy: really, you love judd apatow movies? >> yeah, i think he's -- i love him. >> jimmy: what makes you attracted to his movies? >> i think he's -- well, extremely funny, obviously. but i think his work is groundbreaking. i consider him like a great auteur. i think he's an auteur avante garde, like, ground-breaking filmmaker. >> jimmy: really? >> yeah, i love his movies. >> jimmy: my god, he must love hearing that.
