Fall TV: Returning Primetime Hotties

For the last few weeks, and up until this Sunday, it’s been a big time for TV addicts — so many shows are back! And with them comes the hot dudes that make the shows worth watching (well, in addition to awesome stories, great acting, etcetera). After the jump, 10 TV actors we’re so psyched to have back in our lives, including John Krasinski (“The Office” returns tomorrow night!) and Gale Harold, a new addition to “Desperate Housewives” (premiering this Sunday) whom we’ve loved since “Queer As Folk”.

Who IS January Jones, Anyway?

“Mad Men” is my favorite smart show on television (“America’s Next Top Model” is my favorite stupid show), partially because my loins desire the raw magnetism of Don Draper, but also because I absolutely love the compelling story lines driven by the show’s main actresses. Betty Draper’s character is of particular interest to me and I think she is portrayed so subtly by January Jones. But who the heck is the actress with the porn star-worthy name anyway? Well, for starters, she must have been born to fabulous parents — upon her birth in 1978 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, her parents named her after the character “January Wayne”, from Jacqueline Susann’s “Once Is Not Enough”. That just happens to be one of my favorite trashy reads — I mean, who names their kid after a character in one of the trashiest pill-popping novels of the 1970s? Awesome people, that’s who. Read on for more January Jones info, including the slew of Hollywood stars she’s dated. Keep reading »

The Boob Tube: Hot Weekend TV For September 20th-21st 2008

TV this weekend is really kind of wack because there’s hardly anything of note to watch. That is unless you’re a fan of the cult classic Spaceballs. G4 TV will premiere “Mel Brooks’ Spaceballs: The Animated Series” on Saturday (clip, after the jump). And if you need a refresher on the film that inspired this new series, the folks at G4 will air the film before the premiere. You can also watch some really entertaining movies, like the Legally Blonde franchise. Sunday is the better day for TV watching, especially in the evening, when “Gossip Girl” and “ANTM” repeat and the “60th Primetime Emmy Awards” air. [TV Guide]

The Boob Tube: Hot Weekend TV For September 13-14th 2008

Weekends can’t be all about going out and socializing, especially if you’re laid up in bed with the flu like Amelia. The weekend should also be a time to relax and catch up on TV, so The Frisky wants to make sure you know what cool programs and marathons will air from Saturday morning to Sunday night. This weekend we’re all about Paris Hilton’s New BFF Casting Special, the season premiere of Saturday Night Live, that Coco Chanel documentary on Lifetime, and, of course, Mad Men.

Mad Men: Don Draper, You Are So BUSTED

I missed Peggy this week. Our favorite glass ceiling breaker took much of this week’s episode of Mad Men off and the episode, instead, focused on new assistant Jane, Don Draper’s new car (to replace the one he crashed when he was drunk driving with Bobbie Barrett), and Cooper’s new Mark Rothko painting. Needless to say, it was an odd episode. Read on to find out about Jane’s complete and total insubordination and Jimmy Barrett’s big reveal to Betty Draper… Keep reading »

Damn You Don Draper: Sex, Mirrors, And Mad Men

Last night’s episode of Mad Men really pissed me off. Oh, Don Draper, and your wiley, sexual ways. And damn you, Duck, for doing what you did to Chauncey! The episode was all about the two sides to women that men see and the two sides to Don that WE see. While Sterling Cooper works on putting together a new ad campaign for Playtex, centered around every woman have a Jackie (Kennedy) side and a Marilyn (Monroe) side — for the record, according to the boys, Peggy is all Gertrude Stein — Don is in way too deep with Bobbie Barrett. Don is not immune to viewing women through these two lenses as well — while he’s happy to have Bobbie as his whore on the side, when Betty buys a chic new bikini to wear at the pool, Don is quick to demean her as “desperate”. Both sides of Amelia wanted to smack the s–t out of him for that one. Keep reading »

Mad Men’s Peggy Olson Is Our New Hero

Last night’s episode of Mad Men finally answered so many lingering questions about Peggy Olson and brought up ever so many more about Don Draper — namely, “Can Draper ever change?” Additionally, the parallels and the bond between Peggy and Don were illuminated, a deeper side was revealed to Bobbie Barrett, and we learned Pete’s spunk was just as potent as ever. Oh, and Peggy is our hero. Keep reading »

Crushes As Foreplay

Confession: I’m having a secret affair with my 21-year old Irish doorman. It’s such a secret, not even HE knows. The other night, when my fiancé was out, my doorman – I don’t even know his name – came upstairs to my apartment to replace three light bulbs. As he stood on the ladder, screwing in those bulbs, telling me all about going to school in Dublin and spending the summer in New York, I felt enormously guilty. My fiancé wasn’t home and this attractive, foreign, younger man was doing menial labor in my apartment, steps away from my bedroom. It felt kind of like cheating, even though it was far from it in actuality, and cheating in actuality is something I would never, ever, ever do. Keep reading »

How Do We Still Love You, Don Draper?

The same week John Edwards admitted to cheating on his wife with Rielle Hunter, Mad Men‘s Don Draper lost his (short) battle NOT to cheat on his wife. The comparisons are easy, if shallow — both dashing, charming, well-manicured, with wives that ooze kindness, morality, loyalty, and selfless struggle. While John Edwards does not have the luxury of his affair being fictional, Don Draper, nevertheless, remains at the top of our “Most Boinkable on TV” list. But how is it that we still have such a girl-boner for a character who not only cheats on wife, but also just had one of the more sinister moments we’ve seen on TV? Keep reading »
