The last time Joseph Gordon-Levitt hosted “Saturday Night Live,” he performed a musical number and did a righteous backflip during his opening monologue. Oh yeah, and Number #1 Fan Julie Gerstein was in the country to watch him on TV. Not this time! JG is on vacay while JGL is on “SNL,” but hopefully she’s got it on her TiVo. OK, TTYL. [NBC]
I’ll admit, I didn’t watch VH1′s first season of “Couples Therapy” but I will be watching this season, which premieres October 3rd, as Dr. Jenn Berman and a team of shrinks try to help celebrity couples with their marital issues. The D-list cast includes Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchinson (and possibly their new pup Dourtney?), former “Real Housewives Of New York City” cast members Alex McCord and Simon van Kempen, reality star Shayne and Nik Lamas-Richie and more. I’m dying to get inside those marriages. Just dying. Actually, I’m most excited for Alex and Simon. They’re relationship has been making me twitch for years. Bathing suits, fights and lots of crying! Yessss! This looks the kind of trashy TV I can’t resist. [ONTD]
JA,N — short for Just Act, Naturally (played by comic genius Parker Posey) — will teach you how to give the Emmy Award acceptance speech to end all acceptance speeches. JA,N’s class covers Emmy holding techniques, audience acknowledgement, awkward crying and, of course, loser training. Now all you have to do is find a way to get nominated! Maybe that will be covered in JA,N’s forthcoming audiobook. I certainly hope so.
We are so so so psyched to see “Pitch Perfect” when it hits theaters on October 5. “Glee” meets “Bring It On”? Um, yes please! But in advance of seeing the film, we should probably get to know our roster of high-note-hitting glee club members, The Bellas. In the video above, find out more about how The Bellas start out and who they become once Anna Kendrick’s Beca and Rebel Wilson’s Fat Amy (seriously, that’s her character’s name…) start singing.

Dear “The Voice,”
I heard the news that you will be replacing Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green with Shakira and Usher next season. I hate this idea. Not because I love Xtina and Cee Lo so much that I can’t stand to lose them, but because you seem to be getting a touch of “American Idol” syndrome.
That’s not a real syndrome, I just made it up. It’s when a reality competition show gets really successful, really quickly, and instead of sticking with what made it really successful, really quickly in the first place, it gets all full of itself and tries to change everything, therefore ruining itself. That was a really long sentence. What I’m trying to say to you is: don’t ruin yourself, “The Voice.” Keep reading »
This week, instead of our usual recap of Bravo’s “Horrible Slags Who Pretend To Care About Art,” I mean “Gallery Girls,” I’ve teamed up with HyperVocal‘s dashingly handsome Greg Seals for a Skype video recap of last night’s episode. Watch Greg and I break down Chantal’s three evil personalities, wax philosophical about Eli Klein’s possible/probable sexual fetishes, and reveal Liz’s involvement in the Upper East Side Fight Club. (Also, after the jump, my most favorite GIF ever.) Keep reading »
