If you’re not watching “Community” yet, I’m going to give you an assignment: Start watching it already. It’s one of the funniest shows on TV, and that’s in large part to the work of one Senor Chang, played by funny dude Ken Jeong. Jeong, who proves that you can switch up your life path at any time, used to be a medical doctor and then became a doctor of funny with roles in “The Hangover” and “Role Models.” Here, enjoy a selection of some of Jeong’s finest moments as disgraced Spanish teacher Senor Chang and get prepped for the next season of “Community,” starting up again this September.

“Community” is hands down one of my favorite shows on television, and Alison Brie and Gillian Jacobs are so, so brilliant in their roles as uptight Annie and posh girl Britta, respectively. So it makes me a touch sad that one of the few ways they can get space in a magazine is to put on lingerie and pretend to spank each other with hairbrushes. But then again, this photo is hot. And they do have a sense of humor about it. “With a shoot like this, you’re negotiating these positions together,” said Alison. “‘Can you move your crotch a little to the left? Really get it up there.’” Gillian adds, “The next day we were texting each other, ‘Are you sore, too?’” So I guess I approve. [GQ] Keep reading »
It seems there’s nothing that Betty White
can’t do. She’s a first-rate comedienne who is equally talented at playing your sweet grandma and swearing up a storm. And on last night’s episode of “Community

A short while ago, we released some refinements to The Frisky’s community tools that were introduced on Wednesday. We want to thank all of you for your valuable and spirited (sometimes apoplectically so!!!) feedback – it was very helpful.

As you may have noticed, yesterday we rolled out the first phase of a four-phase plan to give you, our beloved users, expanded features and tools to interact with each other and contribute to The Frisky in new and deeper ways. In this first phase, we replaced the old comments and profiles system.
Yes, we know the new system has been agonizingly slow at times and still has some bugs to be squashed. Hard though it may be for some of you to believe, we find this more annoying than you do. We’re working hard to improve things, and want very much to get your feedback. After the jump, an overview of changes, tweaks still to come — and your input, please.

Friday nights have meant a long-standing date with Joel McHale and I. (And by “date,” I mean pretending he’s not the married father of two.) So when I read the host of E!’s “The Soup” will star in not one but two upcoming projects, backflips of joy were in order.
The first project is The Informant, an FBI thriller with Matt Damon debuting this October. Joel is actually a classically trained actor with a Master’s from the University of Washington, which explains why Stephen Soderbergh cast him. But he’ll keep close to his “Soup”-y comedic routes with his second project, starring alongside Chevy Chase on “Community,” an NBC comedy series about community college students and their professors. —[Papermag] Lucky for us, he’ll still be taping “The Soup” in addition to “Community.”
Seeing as Joel’s made his big break to network TV, it’s time to learn more about my dream boyfriend than just his very deep thoughts on “America’s Next Top Model.” Click through for five things to know about Joel McHale: Keep reading »
Three residents of the Isle of Lesbos (no thatâ€™s not a euphemism, they really live there) are suing the Greek Gay and Lesbian Union, Olke, over the use of the word â€œLesbian.â€ Although the plaintiffs claim theyâ€™re cool with the lifestyle, they want to stop the confusion and reclaim the name solely for people from the region. Theyâ€™re loud, theyâ€™re proud, and theyâ€™re used to calling themselves Lesbians. But the term actually comes from one of the most famous Lesbians, in both meanings of the word, Sappho, a writer in Ancient Greece who wrote love poems to other women. Despite the ridiculousness of the charges of â€œpsychological and moral rapeâ€ of their label, the case, supported by a member of a local pagan group and two other inhabitants, will be heard in a court in Athens sometime in June.
