Watch John Oliver Bid Farewell To “The Daily Show”

We'll Miss You, John!

Last night was John Oliver’s last episode on “The Daily Show” as he gears up to host an HBO comedy series next year. He spent over seven years with the show, and even stepped in as host this summer. Jon Stewart refreshed audiences on some of Oliver’s best moments and made for a teary farewell. I couldn’t watch it without tearing up myself. Best of luck, John! [NYMag.com]

Forget New Year’s Resolutions, I Just Want To Watch “Girls” In 2014

Start The Year Off Right

I’m something of an HBO fanatic, so I can’t wait to see what’s around the corner for the network in 2014. The final season of “True Blood”? Season three of “Girls”?  Yes, please! Check out this teaser HBO released with clips of “Game of Thrones,” “The Normal Heart” and all the other shows and movies to get excited about. It even recaps the best of 2013 — Beyoncé’s documentary “Life Is But A Dream,” anyone? — for your pop culture nostalgia pleasure. See you on the couch. [Huffington Post]

Hannah Twerks Against A Gravestone In The “Girls” Season 3 Trailer

Twerk It, Horvath.

I can’t believe “Girls”‘ third season starts in less than two months. It feels like just yesterday that the show was making its debut to a chorus of equal parts “IT’S THE BEST THING ON TV EVER” and “THIS SHIT DOESN’T REPRESENT ME OR ANYONE I KNOW.” So what’s ahead for “Girls” in season three? More of the same, from what I can glean! Hannah and Adam seem to be together and traversing through the wilderness, Jessa is back and more luminous than ever, Ray is still a loser and there’s not nearly enough Shoshanna. And, as these are post-Miley times, Hannah finds time to twerk against a gravestone. I’m sure there’s a great reason! Will you be watching on January 12? I will, but I’m just as predictable as they are.

We Swear It’s Not Porn! (NSFW)

It's not porn
It Sounds A Whole Lot Like Porn But...

When I was an actress, the worst part was telling my friends and family about the roles I was auditioning for — or sometimes, had just booked. I’d be like, “I’m just got a horror movie with Gary Busey! I’m playing a vampire prostitute who gets shot in the head while playing cards with Morgan Freeman’s son in a cabin in the middle of Afghanistan!” Then I’d just watch the concern/confusion/horror pass over their faces as they assumed the worst. (I really did play that part, by the way. And it wasn’t porn.) A new video, “It’s Not Porn…”, spoofs that phenomenon. Actors and actresses brag about the roles they just landed that happen to sound a whole lot like porn, but are really just HBO shows. See if you can name all the scenes from you favorite shows.
