Get excited. The CW has announced that it will air what sounds to me like the best game show ever, “Extreme Musical Chairs.” The show description explains it will “transform the popular children’s game into a physically demanding competition with multiple rounds of elimination set in an indoor obstacle course.” It will feature 20 contestants fighting to find a chair to the soundtrack of a live band. The last player standing doesn’t just get a piece of birthday cake though. In this extreme version, they get a big cash prize. Tell me how I enter NOW. New goal in life: find a way to be on “Extreme Musical Chairs.” [The Daily What]
Serving in my capacity as a chair-bound fitness expert, I’m here to shed some light on the gym experience, and in particular, list some of the awful, awful people you’re about to meet on your self-improvement/desalination journey, and how you should deal with them. Keep reading »
Jennifer Westfeldt is some kind of voodoo witch doctor sorcerer. Not only has she captured the heart of Jon Hamm, but she has also written and directed a romantic comedy with an ensemble cast and, you guys, you’re not going to slit your wrists while watching it. “Friends With Kids” comes out March 9 and stars Jennifer, her manpiece, Kristen Wiig (!), Maya Rudolph (!), Chris O’Dowd (!!!!!), Adam Scott (!), and Edward Burns (!!!!!). That’s like half of the “Bridesmaids” crew, which is why it actually looks funny. Goddamn, woman. How did you keep Katharine Heigl from being cast in this? Burning crosses and heads on stakes?

A few days ago, The Roots’ Questlove was on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” and he started some beef with Tina Fey, claiming that whenever she’s on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” she’s kind of not very friendly. Tina, being awesome, wanted to address this as quickly as possible, so she appeared on the show last night and resolved to squash their beef by ceremoniously chowing down on Ye Olde Hoagie of Forgiveness.
For those of you who aren’t from Philadelphia, a hoagie is a sandwich, and it is delicious. And Tina Fey’s impression of the Philadelphian accent is pretty much spot on. I won’t keep you in suspense: the sharing of the Hoagie of Forgiveness seemed to work like a charm. Perhaps it can be employed in other similar beefs? Say, peace in the Middle East? What if we made it Kosher? [Hulu]
Shannon June, mother of our newest “Toddlers & Tiaras” muse Alana, is speaking out about feeding her daughter “go-go juice” in last week’s episode. Was I the only one who snickered at the term? Last I heard, “go-go juice” was slang for, well, female juices shall we say. We know that’s not what she was drinking. “The go-go juice is just Mountain Dew and just a hint of Red Bull,” Alana’s mother explained. Sounds healthy! All judgey-ness aside, there are lots of terms on “Toddlers & Tiaras” that mean very different things in the real world. Click through to find out what the hell those pageant folks are talking about.
