This is not a suitable “Friday Night Lights” replacement. On Friday night, MTV2 will premiere its second season of “Lingerie Football League: Friday Night Football.” The concept is fairly obvious from the title. The LFL consists of 12 teams of female players, with names like the Philadelphia Passion and the Los Angeles Temptation, who play 34 minutes of flag football per epiosde while wearing itty-bitty boy shorts and bra tops. The show’s tagline? “This is truly fantasy football.”
I’m just not sure what to make of this. Keep reading »
All hail the geniuses behind Cat Scans, a website that collects scans, of well, cat butts as they primp and preen while sitting on scanners. There’s nothing quite as wonderful as a furry cat butt smooshed up against a piece of glass, is there now? After the jump, several more fluffy feet and tail combos for your enjoyment.

What is it exactly about Kermit, Gonzo, Miss Piggy, and Fozzie Bear that makes me want to tap my toes? Two years ago, I heard whispers that an album of Muppet cover songs was happening. At the time, it was called The Muppets Remastered—it’s since been changed to The Green Album. And today it is finally out. My favorite song is definitely Andrew Bird’s cover of “It’s Not Easy Being Green.” But Weezer and Hayley WIlliams’ “The Rainbow Connection” is pretty sweet too, as is Matthew Nathanson’s “I Hope That Something Better Comes Along.” As Slate notes, however, there is one oversight—what happened to “She Makes Me Happy,” Kermit and Miss Piggy’s wedding song from “The Muppets Take Manhattan”? But hey, it’s still pretty thrilling.

Last night’s episode of “Bachelor Pad” was two hours of inane fights, tiny bathing suits, and intricate psychological manipulation, with one hot (and one gross) makeout session thrown in for kicks. In other words, it was the perfect mindless, trashy entertainment. Oh, and did I mention that at the end of it all, we were left with a major cliffhanger? After the jump, the good, the bad, and the WTF moments of last night’s episode. SPOILER ALERT! Keep reading »
Some people are anxiously awaiting the new “Charlie’s Angels.” Me? I am far, far, far more excited about the return of “Nikita,” the CW’s female spy show that quickly became one of my faves during its first season. What I like about “Nikita” is that the two main characters—Nikita and Alex—have a relationship that unpeels like an onion. As layers of information come off, it becomes increasingly unclear whether they’re working for or against each other’s interests. Here it appears that they may actually be enemies in season two? Guess we’ll have to wait and see. Keep reading »
New Yorkers aren’t exactly known for being the nicest, most positive bunch. Which might have been why the folks at Improv Everywhere set out to get Manhattan residents to say something nice, for once. The prank collective set up bullhorns around the city with the express aim of encouraging people to spread the positivity, and boy did they ever. [Improv Everywhere
