Matthew Weiner Promises “Mad Men” Will Not End In A Fart

"I do know how the whole show ends ... It came to me in the middle of last season. I always felt like it would be the experience of human life. And human life has a destination. It doesn't mean Don's gonna die. What I'm looking for, and how I hope to end the show,…

“The Witch Doctor Will See You Now” Looks Absolutely Riveting

"The Witch Doctor Will See You Now,"  a new miniseries on the National Geographic Channel, is pretty much my television dream come true.

You know,…

Fox Gives “In Living Color” Another Chance

While I attempted to do the booty bounce along with the Fly Girls, my brother would hobble around the living room tucking his upper lip and blinking one eye (his best Fire Marshall Bill impersonation). It was a ritual in our house to watch the '90s sketch comedy extravaganza, "In Living Color." The groundbreaking Fox…

Your Future According To “Arrested Development”

I predict more "Arrested Development" humor in your future. Especially if you receive a reading with this prophetic Tarot deck. See what fate has in store for you according to the Bluths.

“Jem And The Holograms” Was Deeper Than We Thought

"Just because the show was for kids, I would never write down. I would write the kind of deep, rich story that I would like to watch – just trusting it would communicate to the viewers, and it did. The characters were rich, and deep, and had a lot of life to them, a lot…

The Final Countdown To “Arrested Development” The Movie

The final countdown to the "Arrested Development" film (and television season) is here! After five years sans Bluth, it's good to know that my time spent practicing the chicken dance and asking strangers to "babysit me" wasn't all for naught.  We only have to wait one more year before the filming begins. In the meantime,…

“My Strange Addiction” Presents A Pillow Addict

  This week on "My Strange Addiction," we met 33-year-old Tamara and her pillow Boo. This pair has history. They've been together since 1982, when she found him at an antique shop, but their connection deepened when she leaned on Boo (literally) as a coping mechanism after being molested. Even though Boo has never bee…

6 Concepts For Pippa Middleton’s New TV Show

Pippa Middleton's backside is already famous. If The Enquirer's sources are accurate, we may be seeing a whole lot more of P-Middy from the front. Word on the 'bloid circuit is that Oprah Winfrey is pursuing Pippa to become daytime royalty at OWN. Yes, you read that correctly, Pippa Middleton may get her OWN talk…

10 Things We Hope Will Happen On The Final Episodes Of “Oprah”

I cannot believe that "The Oprah Show" is coming to an end next week. Seriously, I've been watching since I was, like, eight and I always thought I'd make it onto her couch. I guess it's time to let that dream go. Sigh. After 25 seasons, the Big O is filming her final three episodes.

And My Favorite “Celebrity Apprentice” Cast Member Is …

Lil Jon is creative, Meatloaf is a dynamo, and Jon Rich has the ethical constitution of an ox. Much respect, but none of them is my favorite cast member of "Celebrity Apprentice" this season. The person I am most excited to see each Sunday is Jack Jason, the hands and voice of Marlee Matlin. I…

This Girl Can’t Shut Her Mouth

"Bizarre ER" is my new favorite television show that doesn't air here. The same people that brought you the guy with the tiny hat superglued to his head, share the tale of the girl who can't shut her mouth. Poor Holly Thompson, she's not in shock, she just yawned too hard during Government class and…

Have you been watching "Glee"? Popular bad boy, Puck (played by Mark Salling), admitted he has the hots for bad ass big girl, Lauren (played by Ashley Fink). They aren't officially a couple, but Puck is courting Lauren at her request while she plays hard to get. I was thinking it was just a matter…

A Television Show About Edgar Allen Poe?

File this under television show ideas that could go terribly wrong. ABC has given the green light to a pilot about Edgar Allan Poe. The one-hour drama, "Poe," will portray the writer as a detective using unconventional methods to explore the macabre unsolved mysteries of Boston in the 1840s. I wonder if the show will…

My very favorite sex advice columnist and founder of the "It Gets Better Project," Dan Savage, may be a new staple on MTV.

Are We Ready For The Rat Hoarder?

I've seen every episode of "Hoarders." I survived Sir Patrick the leprechaun, the doll hoarder, the human waste hoarder, the family of hoarders. I was confident that after two seasons of desensitization, there wasn't any kind hoard that could shock me. Oh, how wrong I was. Since I saw the preview, I have been mentally…

“The Bachelor” Season 15: I Forgive You, Brad Womack

Brad Womack is back for his second chance at love on season 15 of "The Bachelor." Geez, have there really been that many seasons? Anyhow, I turned on the tube with my rotten tomatoes at the ready to hurl at the screen. In my estimation, Brad is the archetype of the emotionally crippled man. That…

Purity Rings Have An Expiration Date On “RHOA”

I wanted to be excited that Kim Zolciak's 13-year-old daughter Brielle actually asked her mom for a purity ring on the latest episode of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," but the whole thing fell apart for me when she started negotiating her abstinence expiration date. 18? 19? 20? I don't know a whole lot about…
