It’s that time, folks! After receiving tons of tweets about your favorite “Funemployment” activites for The Frisky’s “New Girl” Twitter Contest, we’ve selected three lucky winners (who all happen to be from Cali, coincidentally)!

Here’s whose tweets earned them “New Girl” seasons one and two on DVD… Keep reading »

Poll: Are First Dates At Home Cozy Or Creepy?

Let’s face it: the economy sucks. And unfortunately, not having much money can sometimes get in the way of things … including dating.

As a single gal, I’m hearing of more and more people who have opted to forgo the traditional first-date dinner at a restaurant in favor of an evening at home getting to know one another. Not only is entertaining a date in your home more comfortable for some, limiting the amount of awkward silences and giving you that in-your-element advantage, but it’s also usually easier on the wallet. Pop in a movie, grab a bottle of wine and some snacks, and voila! Keep reading »

Poll: Can Selfish People Do Selfless Things?

After live tweeting through last night’s season premiere of “Nashville,” and then discussing the episode this morning around the water cooler (okay, not really … we were just at our desks), it dawned on me: every character who appeared to be doing a good deed was really doing something that would ultimately benefit them. Or, at least, that’s what we were led to believe.

Characters who were introduced to us in season one as selfish individuals were later humanized, slowly redeeming themselves through various acts of kindness and humility. But looking back, it’s hard to tell which of those acts were genuine. In last night’s premiere, several characters’ “selfless” acts seemed to be peppered with their own, personal intentions in mind.

Join Us On Twitter! “Modern Family” And “Nashville” Are Back!

Phil Dunphy and Rayna James are back, bitches!

Two of television’s hottest TV shows return tonight, making our Wednesdays a hell of a lot more exciting than the Chinese takeout and thumb twiddling we’ve gotten so used to over the last few months. Keep reading »

Win This! “New Girl” Seasons 1 & 2 On DVD

Win This! “New Girl” Seasons 1 & 2 On DVD

Heyyyy Girl, whatcha doin? Oh … winning “New Girl” Seasons 1 & 2 on DVD? That’s what I thought.

To honor the quirky, Nick-lovin’ school teacher we all know as Jess Day (aka Zooey Deschanel), we’re tipping our hats to her brief period of unemployment in between teaching gigs AND giving you a chance to take home the first two seasons of the hit FOX show!

During her “funemployment,” Jess tried her hand at being a shot girl, a haunted house zombie, and best of all, her boobs “didn’t have to go to boob jail every day.” Keep reading »

Tonight: The Frisky Live Tweets The Emmy Awards!

Yes, we want to know if Kerry Washington will beat out Connie Britton for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series, but what we REALLY want to know about the Emmys is if we will see Claire Danes’ awful/amazing cry face.

Join @TheFrisky on Twitter tonight, starting at 6 p.m. ET for witty commentary and life-changing, thought-provoking questions, like who would win in a duel between the casts of “Breaking Bad” and “Game of Thrones”?

Make sure you’re using the hashtag #SpinEmmys and we’ll see you there! Who’s in?

Tomorrow Night: The Emmy Awards Are Getting Friskified!

Join Us Tonight! The EMMYs Get The Frisky Treatment

The glitz! The glamour! The constant wondering why Neil Patrick Harris has to be gay and can’t be my boyfriend! It’s all happening again, because the EMMYs are back, bitches.

In usual Frisky fashion, we’ll be live tweeting from the second the first star hits the red carpet to the moment NPH performs his elaborate closing song-and-dance burlesque number (a girl can dream, can’t she?) Keep reading »

Poll: Would You Rather Be Single Forever Or With Someone You’re Meh About?

Happy National Singles Week! In honor of the festive occasion, I’d like to discuss people who SETTLE.

I’ve always been told not to settle for anyone who’s less than perfect for me, but for some, singlehood is seemingly not an option. So many people I know have chosen to be with, and in some cases, marry, someone who is not right for them— just to avoid the possibility of not finding “the one” and growing old alone.

Live Tweet With The Frisky During Tonight’s “New Girl” Season Premiere!

They’re ba-ack! Jess and Nick are FINALLY a couple, Schmidt is caught in a love triangle between Cece and Elizabeth, and Winston … well, he got attacked by a badger last time we saw him.

There was a lot going on when we said goodbye to “New Girl” last season, but tonight, they’ll pick up right where they left off. And because you guys voted “New Girl” as one of this month’s most anticipated returning shows, we’ll be live tweeting during the premiere! Keep reading »
