TV Is Coming Out Like Clay Aiken

Network TV has got almost as many gay characters as Marc Jacobs’ Rolodex.

Gossip Girl Greatness: This Show Is My Drug

Call me pathetic because I’m in love with a show about rich high schoolers but I don’t care, I love it anyway. Today I’m even wearing the same silk tunic that Serena wore in last week’s premiere when she was on the beach. (The costume department loses a point though because I’ve had this baby…

Sex On TV: Network TV Caught With Their Pants Down

While sex used to be saved for cable television shows, networks have been trying to compete by showing some skin themselves. Hits like Gossip Girl and Desperate Housewives have been steaming the storylines, and the ratings, up. Over the past few years the change has been so noticeable, consumer watchdogs, the Parents Television Council, decided…

British Favor Watching TV Over Interacting With People

The Brits might love their TV even more than we do, or maybe fewer of them have DV-R. A new poll revealed that a fifth of those surveyed regularly shun family, friends, and partners so they won’t miss their favorite TV shows.
