  • In ratings news, the season premiere of So You Think You Can Dance? was down 30% from last year’s opener, while the debut of Duets performed so-so.

Enjoy your weekend, and to go out on a pleasant note, below you can see Ellen interview six-year-old Rainer and three-year-old Atticus, two of the absolutely most adorable tykes I’ve ever seen. They’re Presidential experts, and Rainer gives a shoutout for marriage-equality. This is certain to put a smile on your face.
