Fall TV Guide: The Mega-est New Show Night Of The Year

If the fall television season is a war, then tonight is D-Day. This week is when the four major networks begin their new lineups, and as such, there are a whopping five new series premiering tonight. Further complicating the DVR selections is the fact that four of them look very good. (Sorry, “Mike & Molly,” but nothing sounds less exciting to me than a sitcom about an overweight police officer and his wife.) So which should you be watching? A handy guide after the jump.

JWoww Stripping Down For Playboy

What’s the easiest way to get Jenni “JWoww” Farley out of her Filthy Couture? Offer her a deal to strip down for Playboy. The “Jersey Shore” star tells us that the ink is almost dry on the contract. “The final offer is standing,” she says. “Hopefully, it will go through.”

At the same time, JWoww is apparently fighting off offers for new TV shows from networks besides MTV. Keep reading »

Fall TV Guide: Taking A Stroll Down “Boardwalk Empire”


Sunday night is when the A-game television shows come out to play. And just as we bid adieu to “True Blood,” HBO trotted out its biggest gun ever—”Boardwalk Empire,” a Martin Scorsese-directed series about Atlantic City in the 1920s just as Prohibition has gone into effect. The show is one of the most expensive ever made—the pilot cost $50 million and required the building of a replica Atlantic City boardwalk in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. And so we all wondered if the series would be evocative of a specific era, à la its Sunday night TV neighbor “Mad Men.” Or if it would be more like “Treme”—interesting, but I only tuned in once.

After watching last night, my verdict is … Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Easy A,” “The Town,” “Catfish,” “Leaves of Grass,” “Jack Goes Boating,” “The Freebie”

We are merely days away from autumn and thank goodness for that, because along with the sweaters and leaves comes some quality movies. This might be the first time ever that I want to see every single movie that is coming out (except for the creepy animated wolf movie I conveniently left off of the list). There’s comedy, intrigue, romance, and a lot of amazing actors who’ve been on the down-low for a bit. There’s the eagerly awaited “Easy A,” the Ben Affleck-directed “The Town,” reality thriller “Catfish,” and Edward Norton‘s newest, “Leaves of Grass.” Also: Philip Seymour Hoffman learns to swim in “Jack Goes Boating” and Dax Shepard and his wife make a deal with “The Freebie.” Go see a frickin’ movie. And call your mother—she worries. Keep reading »

Jon Stewart wants to start a revolution—one dedicated to calming people down and ending the drawing of Hitler mustaches on people who aren’t Hitler. The best part? You can join him. Stewart recently announced on his show that he will be leading the “Rally to Restore Sanity” in Washington D.C’s National Mall on October 30th. “It’s real,” he promises. This “Million Moderate March” is Stewart’s effort to get the 80 percent of us that are politically unmoved to get the other 20 percent on both sides of the aisle to calm down, so we can all work on creating solutions, instead of shouting or doing nothing at all. So who is going to set aside their Devil’s Night to join the “Rally to Restore Sanity”? Me! [PopEater] Keep reading »

The “Real Housewives” That Bravo Evicted

The Salahis are finding themselves unwelcomed once again. Reports are saying that the couple have not been invited back to season two of “The Real Housewives of D.C.” Bravo was hoping the attention surrounding the gatecrashing twosome would bring high ratings to the show, but now the network suspects that Michaele and Tareq are turning viewers off the series. I guess there is such a thing as too much self-promotion. [PopEater]

After the jump, other housewives who found themselves booted out when it was time for a contract renewal. Keep reading »

Is “Hunger Games” The Next “Twilight”?

Though The Hunger Games has nowhere near the level of pop culture saturation as Twilight, the young adult trilogy is quickly gaining the same rabid fan base. But the similarities between the two fiction phenomenons end about there. The Hunger Games books present a world much darker than Stephenie Meyers’ land of glittery vampires and sullen girls. The story revolves around a post-apocalyptic society controlled by a greedy government working from a place called the Capitol. Keep reading »
