Watch: ‘Game of Thrones’ Spoof ‘Real House Wives Of Westeros’

Finally, the Real Housewives/Game of Thrones mashup we’ve all been waiting for!
All of the manipulative and wonderful women of Westeros are together at last in this delightful parody of the two franchises and it is glorious.
I hope this series keeps going but I kind of doubt it because the way this is going,…

“SNL” Flawlessly Spoofs “The Bachelor” With Blake Shelton’s “Farm Hunk”

Never seen an episode of “The Bachelor”? It’s pretty much exactly like this. [NBC]…

Jennifer Lawrence & Alison Brie Almost Starred In An Awesomely Horrible TV Show Together

Let’s all pour one out for missed opportunities.

Before “Mad Men” and “Community,” Alison Brie was just another starving actress looking to break into the biz. And before Jennifer Lawrence won over our hearts as Katniss Everdeen from “The Hunger Games,” she too, was hoping for a big break. It’s safe to say…

A Very Important “Game Of Thrones” PSA

For far too long, dragons have been terrorizing helpless goats and children in the Seven Kingdoms, and it’s time to do something about it. Call 1-800-DRA-CARYS to donate to the worthy cause of catching fire-breathing dragons and finding them forever catacombs. And heads up! If you call in the next 30 minutes, you’ll be sent…

Funny Or Die Imagines What Sofia Coppola’s Live-Action “The Little Mermaid” Might Look Like

First of all, Sofia Coppola really is directing a live-action film version of “The Little Mermaid.” Secondly, I don’t think it’s going to be that far off from what this Funny or Die spoof — starring AnnaSofia Robb and Evan Peters — presents. A melancholy hipster romance, set to great music with lots of late-afternoon su…

Jon Hamm Narrates “Tough Justice” Starring Lady Mary As An Ass-Kicking Cop

I find it impossible to separate Michelle Dockery from Lady Mary, her character on “Downton Abbey,” and apparently neither can she. Even when playing Connie Tough, a bad ass cop in “Tough Justice” alongside Michael Chiklis — on TNT, natch — her hoity-toity side comes out. There is a prim and proper way to fight…

Hitler Reacts To Getting Tila Tequila’s Sympathy And Support

There really is nothing funny about Tila Tequila’s obvious mental health issues, which are evident in her recent rants (excuse me, “satire”) about sympathizing with Hitler and fearing lizard people. But there is something funny about Hitler rejecting Tila Tequila’s support because, amongst other things, she didn’t even call Bobby after “A Shot At Love” finished filming. Thank…

This Is What A Wes Anderson Horror Movie Would Look Like

The best part of last night’s Edward Norton-hosted “Saturday Night Live” was this digital short, a mock trailer for the Wes Anderson-directed horror flick, “The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders.” It features all of the classic Wes Anderson tropes: actors like Owen Wilson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tilda Swinton, and Danny Glover; a pair of precocious childre…

Miley Cyrus Spoofs The Government Shutdown On “SNL” With “We Did Stop”

I have been feeling complex emotions about Miley Cyrus lately — I begrudgingly love her new album, Bangerz; I hate that she made fun of Sinead O’Connor’s mental issues — but she earned some points back with me with this spoof on “Saturday Night Live.” A raunchy remix of “We Can’t Stop” about the government shutdown,…

“Saturday Night Live”‘s “Girls” Promo Features A New, Rubber-Handed Albanian Roommate Played By Tina Fey

Who’s excited for the third season of “Girls”?! I am, especially after seeing this new promo which indicates the show is finally getting a dose of real diversity. Hannah has a new roommate — and she’s from Albania! Surely nothing will make whiny twentysomethings Hannah, Marnie, Shoshanna and Jessa realize how good they have it…

Watch “Joking Bad,” Jimmy Fallon’s “Breaking Bad” Spoof

Jimmy Fallon only has six months left as the host of “Late Night” before he takes over at “The Tonight Show,” and he has a lot of work to do. Watch as he brings on a partner, zips up his hazmat suit and starts slinging jokes instead of Walter White’s signature blue meth in this ridiculously spot-o…

Robin Thicke Loves And Respects Women, You Hear?

Why did it take comedian Eliot Glazer playing Robin Thicke for me to realize how sleazy this guy looks? The gelled hair, the aviator sunglasses, the one-too-open-buttons shirt … I know that’s maybe not the point of this “Robin Thicke Talk Show” spoof, but I got some serious douchechills. [YouTube]…

“Candy Crush: The Movie” Could Be My The Story Of My Life Right Now

Addicted to the Facebook/smartphone game Candy Crush? Then you’ll relate to this faux trailer for “Candy Crush: The Movie.” Once you play the game long enough, you do start to lose yourself! Candy Crush dependency is no joke, you guys. I’ve been stuck on Level 79 for over a week and it is ruining my ability to function.

Don’t Give ABC Any Ideas: “The Baby Bachelor”

Is it possible there could be an episode of “The Bachelor” where the tears flow more freely and the tantrums are explosive? Why yes, yes there could be.  It’s called “The Baby Bachelor”! It’s segment on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” starring his very own preschool-aged nephew Wesley, who is the sweetest bachelor that series has ever…

Gollum Knew You Were Trouble When You Walked In

I thought Ian James Walters was extremely attractive … until he opened his mouth and sang Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble” like Gollum. You know, the creepy guy from “Lord Of The Rings”? I guess we can say he’s attractive and talented. [The Mary Sue]…

“When Are You Going To Have A Baby?”: The Taylor Swift “32” Parody

Don’t get me wrong, I love that Taylor Swift song “22.” I just don’t remember what 22 was like anymore. Breakfast at midnight? Who is still awake at midnight? “It seems like every day my newsfeed is crowded / too many newborns / uh uh uh” … yup, that’s my life. [YouTube]…

If “Game Of Thrones” Was Set In High School

Just Perfect: Dannon’s “Birth Control On The Bottom” Yogurt

Dannon’s Birth Control on the Bottom Yogurt makes it so you don’t to choose between the only two things that matter to you as a women according to TV. Mmm, crunchy! And it kills two birds with one spoonful — you’ll be regular in terms of your period and your butt period. Score! [via Yahoo!]…

James Franco Dons A Justin Bieber Wig, Spoofs “Boyfriend” With Ashley Benson

Another James Franco “art” project! Here he is with a Justin Bieber wig and cap spoofing the song “Boyfriend” with his “Spring Breakers” costar Ashley Benson …  and some other comeley lass.  Rrrow! It gets a little NSFW towards the end. I don’t remember quite so much butt in the real “Boyfriend” video.
What other…

MTV Explains Why They Don’t Play Music Videos Anymore

I wondered for a looonnnggg time why MTV stopped playing music videos. But then I got bored of wondering and just stopped watching MTV. Except for “Jersey Shore” because sometimes I like reality shows about vapid people. This installment of “Ask A Network Head” is a spoof, but with a very healthy dose of truth.
