CBS Now Doling Out Tips On How Not To Be “Pervy” While Ogling Women

CBS Miami actually did an article on the best places to watch hot women "without looking pervy." (Note CBS's original URL for the headline.) Shocking locations include the beach, bars and a casino. What a proud day for journalism. [Jezebel] Meet Cornelia "Nina" Pillard, one of President Obama's picks for the District…

All Up In The Upfronts: The Shows We’re Most Excited For, Part 3

Most networks want their own day for their upfront. But others don't need to be queen for a full 24 hours—thus, Wednesday has become a catch-all day for presentations, which is strange because Friday appears to be wide open. Not only did CBS announce their fall television lineups this morning—TBS and TNT took their…

Why You Won’t See This Commercial During The Super Bowl

Super Bowl Sunday is nine days away, and we've already told you about the anti-abortion Focus on the Family ad you can expect to see if you tune in, rather than heading to Animal Planet for the Puppy Bowl. But what about the ads you won't see? A gay dating site called ManCrunch.com wanted…

Soap Stars Recreate Iconic Presidential Photos

A few soap stars invaded the nation's capital over the weekend for a CBS Watch! magazine photo shoot. They were dressed as presidential couples, but added their signature soap sexiness and romance -- Jackie Kennedy with a heaving bosom, Bill Clinton actually embracing Hillary, and George and Martha in an erotic fantasy. Terri Colombino, who…

Sex On TV: “Swingtown” Makes Us Yearn For The Sexy Summer Of ’76

All this talk about polyamory has convinced me it's time to confess a rather intimate secret: I'm a fan of Swingtown on CBS. I know I can't be the only fan out there — the message boards prove that (Yes, I'm actually reading the message boards. Look, my boyfriend's been away o…

CBS & Janet Jackson Win Fight For Their Right To Flash

Justin Timberlake could have Janet Jackson naked by the end of his song. In a surprising landmark judicial decision, the US Circuit Court of Appeals stopped the FCC from fining CBS over half a mil for the infamous 2004 halftime split second strip show...er, wardrobe malfunction.

Cuddle Parties: Hugs For Fugs

Funerals, talking to a member of the clergy, bumping into your ex and his new girlfriend -- these are all really uncomfortable situations. But nothing gives me more heebee-jeebees than the thought of having to snuggle strangers at a Cuddle Party. Until an episode of Scott Baio is 45…and Single (see above), I had never…

Show We’ll Be Watching: Swingtown

One of the upcoming shows getting lots of buzz is Swingtown on CBS -- I don't think it has an official release date yet, but I'm psyched. The show centers around couples in the 1970's who are into swinging -- i.e. partner swapping. How did a show like this end up on CBS? It i…

Let Love Call The Shots

Soap operas love drama with a cheesy soundtrack, but unfortunately, there’s a small chorus of haters for As The World Turns.

Romance On TV: Big Brother Is Exhaustingly Awesome

Living inside the Big Brother house is a bit like living life in fast-forward: so much more drama goes down in the span of one week than could ever go down in a year in a non-reality show star's life. Frankly, the game itself (i.e. the "couples" vying for the million dollar prize) is not…

Romance On TV: Big Brother Plays Matchmaker

Forget the Millionaire Matchmaker! Julie Chen and the rest of the people behind my favorite summertime guilty pleasure, Big Brother, are looking to play Cupid for the first Winter season of the hit reality TV show. For the ninth season, the cast is totally single and ready to mingle -- or as Julie puts it,…
