12 Pictures That Will Restore Your Faith In Joffrey
People really hate King Joffrey! And with good reason! But like most things in life, not everything is purely black and white.

So, yes, welcome to 'SNL' Scorecard’s third official home (we started way back in 2010 at Movieline before moving to HuffPost) and I hope everyone found their way over here okay? There's a new graphic! Anyway, can we dispense with the introductions now because that’s not why you’re here? Great, moving on… What an interesting show this was! It certainly wasn’t the best show of the season – though i
