Oh, no! The third season of “Mad Men” has been delayed. Variety is reporting the show began shooting this week, and the season premiere will be pushed back at least a month to August at the earliest. [Ace Showbiz] How are we going to go four months without all that repressed desire and those really fabulous clothes?

    Working Retail Is Reality, Not Entertainment

    Most of us have had to work retail at some point. We were desperate for extra cash, we wanted a store discount, or we needed a job. But after dealing with annoying customers and folding and re-folding clothes until your hands hurt, most of us vowed never to be a sales associate again — at least, I did. So, I can’t for the life of me figure out why TV producers think we would want to watch people working at a boutique. Keep reading »

    Modern Love, From Newspaper Column To TV Show

    The New York TimesModern Love column is something many simply adore — and others love to hate. Each week, readers learn intimate details about someone else’s relationship, and sometimes learn lessons about human nature, relationships, and love. The column has helped several writers launch their careers by way of book deals; now it may help The New York Times‘ wallet. Former “Sex and the City” writer Jenny Bicks is working on a pilot script for a TV show based on Modern Love — not a specific column, the whole shebang.

    The show will revolve around a fictionalized male editor’s life, which includes a messy divorce, a rocky relationship with a teenage daughter, and a reentry into the dating scene. Stories and people from the newspaper column will be woven into the show’s storylines. Even though BermanBraun optioned the rights to the column from The Times last year, Bicks isn’t sure whether she’ll be able to set the series at the paper, or if it will become a fictional news organization.

    Meanwhile, the real editor of Modern Love, Daniel Jones, lives in Massachusetts with his family. No word on how he feels about having his life made into a TV show. [Variety] Keep reading »

    “Gossip Girl” Spinoff Looks A Lot Like “That ’80s Show”

    A poster for the “Gossip Girl”-spinoff “Valley Girls” has been released, and it doesn’t make us at all excited for the show. Instead, it reinforces the poor casting of Brittany Snow as the young Lily van der Woodsen. [Videogum]

    The Sexiest Shows On Television

    Soft-core porn used to be reserved for pay-per-view channels like Skin-imax, but now it’s all over the boob tube! And it’s not Lifetime movie-esque storylines with wives in floral print dresses waiting for their husbands to feel them up so, so gently you can hardly tell what they’re doing is a sex act. Lucky for me and all you pervs out there, TV has gotten so meaty. Yeah, baby, we like it raw! Here are the top shows to watch, if you want to see some gratuitous soft-core sex scenes… Keep reading »

    10 Must See TV Shows in January

    The new year is giving me something to look forward to. TV! Some of our faves are finally returning and a few new shows are giving us something to fill up that extra space on our DVR’s. Here’s a list of shows on our radar in January.

    1. Scrubs
    1/6, ABC
    The show’s highly talked about move to ABC is enough of a reason for me to watch the wacky hospital comedy. Last season, J.D. had a baby but still has feelings for his co-worker Elliot.

    2. Hell’s Kitchen
    1/29, Fox
    Gordon Ramsey is ready to get fiesty in this reality show about chefs competing for a chance to run their own restaurant.

    3. American Idol
    1/13, Fox
    We are all probably a little tired of “American Idol.” But they are bringing in a fourth judge this season. I’m eager to see how Paula interacts with her. I smell a cat fight if Paula isn’t taking her meds. Keep reading »

    5 Things Men Buy To Make Us Think They’re Livin’ Large

    There seems to be a direct correlation between how much a man spends on something and how big he wants the outside world to think his penis is. These big-ticket items have to be noticeably large, suped up, and impressive — something to be showed off. When men drop serious cash, it’s symbolically like they dropped their pants too. Here are the five things that men buy to make us think they have a big dick:

    Sports Car: With that much horsepower, he feels like he’s hung like a horse. Keep reading »

    The Top Five Female Lushes On TV

    While traditionally women have been prized for their virtue and morality, there’s a crop of bitches out there that are sketchier than their breath and we love them for it! Every day for your viewing pleasure, these ladies got drunk as skunks, popped a few pills, said what was on their mind, dress to the nines, and then do it all over again. Yeah, they’ll never win the Nobel Prize or even Mother of the Year, but we think they deserve their applause for simply being over-the-top entertainment. So for the ladies we’d love to tie one on with, here are our Favorite Female Lushes.

    TV Is Coming Out Like Clay Aiken

    Network TV has got almost as many gay characters as Marc Jacobs’ Rolodex. Just last year, there were only seven homosexuals and bisexuals on the boob tube, but this year that number has more than doubled to 16. GLAAD is certainly happy to announce the awesome news and even single out an old foe. The sharp increase is thanks, in part, to Fox, who not only finally put one gay character on a series, they put a whopping FIVE! Still, all this good news comes with a new glass ceiling. While gay men seem to be making head way (no pun intended), there are no lesbian characters on the major networks — just bisexual women. One small step for man, but when is there going to be a jump for womankind? Sigh…will someone please cast Portia Di Rossi to play gay already?! [USA Today via Fark] Keep reading »
