L&O SVU, L&O (only w/ Jesse L. Martin & Jerry Orbach), The West Wing, Ugly Betty, Who's The Boss?, Modern Family, Big Bang Theory, CSI: LV, CSI:Miami, NCIS, Community, The Middle, and 30 Rock.

Audra McDonald has won six Tony Awards for performance, more than any other individual. She is the only person to have won Tony Awards in four different acting categories.

p.s. Audra won her first Tony in 1994, so she’s won 6 awards (out of 8 nominations) in 20 years. Not only did she set the record for most performance Tonys, she also won them faster than anyone else. (It took Julie Harris 25 years to win 5, and then another 25 years to win her sixth, which was honorary. It took Angela Lansbury 43 years to win 5.)

The kicker? This woman is only 43. She’s got *at least* another 20 years on the stage ahead of her.

Lion, Tiger And Bear Raised Together After Rescue From Drug Dealer

Baloo the bear, Leo the lion, and Shere Khan the tiger were found locked in a basement undernourished and abused. The trio was originally owned by a drug dealer who didn’t properly care for them, leading to neglect and poor health. In 2001, Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary, a nonprofit that cares for animals in need, came to the rescue, and took them to Locust Grove, Georgia, where they were treated for injuries. They could have been separated but since at the moment of the rescue they were already friends, the sanctuary decided to keep them together. The abuse they suffered together as babies has bonded them into a loving brotherhood that does not recognize species.
