“Empire” Recap-ish: Can We Get Rid Of Lucious, Please?

Don’t look too closely at any episode of Empire. Under all of the histrionics, the glitz and the glamour, you’ll see. The bottom won’t hold. There’s a few screws loose. The stitches are unravelling. Watching the show is like agreeing to get into that boxcar the neighbor kid made, and letting him push you down a…

The Best Moments Of The 2015 Grammys

Guys, the Grammy Awards are kind of a snoozefest unless you are super-invested in music, specifically popular music. But, if you love the spectacle of awards season and like watching people who would probably never sing together do just that, then the Grammys are the best thing to happen in the long, dark, miserable month…

“The Bachelorette” Superlatives: The Best & Worst Moments From Last Night’s Premiere

Woohoo! “The Bachelorette” is back! Andi Dorfman, last season’s tough talking DA who told Juan Pablo where to stick it, is basically this show’s ideal star. She’s pretty, she’s feisty and, most of all, she is desperate to find love and be engaged at the end. Unfortunately for her, the casting directors phoned it the fuck i…

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: Ashley Tortures Her Suitors, Narrows Down To 4 On “The Bachelorette”

Allow me to describe last night’s episode of “The Bachelorette” in one word: CRINGE. Now, this is nothing new, as “The Bachelorette” is always chock full of cringe-worthy moments. But last night’s episode took the cringe to whole new levels of secondhand shame. From the most psychotic date in all of “Bachelorette/Bachelorette” history to the…

“Bachelor Pad”: Who’s Doing What With Whom In Episode 5

Click here to see larger image.

Last night, yet another stupendous episode of “Bachelor Pad” went down and it became apparent that if you weren’t willing to get busy with a member of the opposite sex, you were going home with empty pockets.

Recapping “True Blood” Via The 6 Best Quotes From Last Night’s Episode

Last night was the season three premiere of “True Blood” and damn, was it awesome. How I have missed watching trashy, soft-core vampire porn on Sunday nights! After the jump, a recap via the episode’s best quotes. There is also a picture of Eric’s OTHER side, if you know what I mean.

“Jersey Shore” Is The Best Thing To Happen To MTV Since Music Videos

Will you remember where you were and who you were with the night “Jersey Shore” premiered on MTV? I will, because the show was just that friggin’ awesome. The show follows eight tri-state area locals as they spend the summer living, working, and partying together on the Jersey Shore. They’re all self-identified “guidos” and…

Moving Into “Melrose Place”

I didn’t need a crystal ball to predict that the CW’s updated version of “Melrose Place” was going to be kind of awesome. It seemed like Laura Leighton, aka Sydney, was going to be the major player on the show—she was sprawled out in a chaise lounge in the center of the show’s cast…

“The Real Housewives Of Atlanta” Recap: “I’m The Director”

NeNe Leakes shouted “I’m the director” all over Buckhead as she prepared “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” for the alter-ego photo shoot by photographer Derek Banks. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. The episode opened with the social director of the crew (NeNe) inviting Kandi and Sheree for Minx Nails manicures. They…

“The Real Housewives Of Atlanta” Recap: Kim Still Can’t Sing In Public

Kim has latched onto Kandi like I predicted she would. Really, I can’t blame Kim for wanting to become close to Kandi because it’s difficult to be on a show if you’re not friends with any of the other four women. Kim visited Kandi at her studio and actually convinced Kandi to produce…

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” Recap: Lisa Is An Instigator

I’m a little disappointed in the behavior of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast members. On last night’s episode, all the women came together for the first time this season. NeNe had arranged for a private tour of a King Tut exhibit that had come to Atlanta. Kim showed up, and I think…

“True Blood” Recap: Erik Cries. A Lot.

Yesterday I enjoyed three of the things I missed the most while I was in Costa Rica (to be honest, the list isn’t much longer than that) — my dog Lucca, a big ol’ breakfast burrito from my favorite brunch joint, and “True Blood.” I caught up on last week’s episode first (Annika…

“True Blood” Recap: Tara And Eggs Get Some Heart

The folks at HBO seem to outdo themselves with every “True Blood” episode and last night’s was no different. Basically, it was all about rescuing Sookie and Godric, who didn’t really need any assistance, from the Fellowship of the Sun people, and Maryann continued her domination over Tara and Eggs.

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” Recap: I Don’t Know Who To Believe

I’m so confused, y’all. Last night’s episode was all about the feud brewing between Sheree and Kim, and the one simmering between Kim, Lisa and NeNe. And I can’t tell who is lying, who’s acting extra for the cameras, and who really should be friends. After the jump, I recap what went dow…

“True Blood” Recap: Godrick Saves The Day!

Last night’s episode of “True Blood” was mega exciting. In a nutshell: Bill was stuck in a hotel room with his maker Lorena and we were treated to another flashback, though this one was less bloody and sexual. I wonder if, as time goes on, we’ll get to see flashbacks of all the…

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” Recap: “I Eat Bitches Like You Everyday!”

There were some highs and some lows on the season premiere of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” last night. The absolute best part was the neck-rolling, arm-swinging catfight, altercation, ruckus, or whatever you want to call it between Sheree and her party planner, Anthony. You see, Sheree had the not-so unique idea to…

“True Blood” Recap: Bill Compton Shows His Animalistic Side

On last night’s episode of “True Blood,” we finally got to see another side to Bill Compton, which had been hinted at, but never seen. Bill had always told Sookie that he wasn’t always such a gentile vampire, eager to mainstream. In a flashback scene that takes place in the ’20s, Bill and…

“NYC Prep” Recap: Lofty Aspirations — Have These Kids Never Heard Of Hubris?

This week’s installment of “NYC Prep” was the first episode where it felt like we were past the character introductions, and finally into the thick of their lives. What did we find when we got there? The clan lives to achieve higher. Kelli with her singing, Taylor with dance, PC with … well, we’re not…

“NYC Prep” Recap: Boys And Bitches

This week on “NYC Prep,” the boys shop more than the girls, Sebastian gets shot down, and Camille and Jessi show (more) of their nasty sides.

At the heart of it all, those pesky “differences” between public school kids and private school weasels. Because, like, they’re practically different species, didn’t you know?
