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…

Rebel Wilson’s New Sitcom “Super Fun Night” Is Super Unfunny

Well, that's a disappointment! As much as we — and everyone else, because come on, who doesn't love Rebel Wilson? — wanted the actress's new show "Super Fun Night," which premiered last night, to be the new best thing ever, the actuality of the show is more like our worst fear…

10 Reasons Lisa Simpson Is The Only Role Model You’ll Need

Lisa Simpson is what can only be described as one of the greatest feminist characters in cartoon history. Every week my family would watch The Simpsons on Sunday as a ritual, so I can say that without a doubt that I wonder if I would be the person I am today without Lisa Simpson’s bookish,…

Lizzy Caplan Talks X-Rated Cookbooks, Masturbation & “Masters Of Sex” With Conan

Dear Hollywood: USE LIZZY CAPLAN MORE. She's only, you know, PERFECT, and I just cannot fathom how she hasn't been put to better use. What is it about her that just seems to go straight to DVD?! With "Mean Girls," "Cloverfield," "True Blood," "Party Down," and "New Girl" all under her supporting-actress and/or regular guest…

Spielberg-Produced Female Astronaut Drama Greenlit By CBS

If Steven Spielberg's resume as a director has an equal, it’s his legacy as a producer. Well, at least it is for this fan of "Pinky and the Brain", "Animaniacs", "Freakazoid!", and "Tiny Toon Adventures". Okay, I suppose he’s also produced some live action television that’s made its mark, and that’s probably the legacy that…

“Game Of Thrones” Gets The “Arrested Developement” Treatment

When you think about it, Lucille Bluth and Catelyn Stark aren't that much different. They're both domineering mothers who've gotten their families in a lot of trouble, right? So it makes sense that some TV superfan would put together the Starks and the Bluths in one hilarious "Game of Thrones"/"Arrested Development mashup. I mean, the…

“Small Town Security”‘s Joan Reveals Her Crush On Avril Lavigne

You guys! Apologies in advance for being the most awkward interviewer ever, but have you seen "Small Town Security" yet? The first season captured the utterly bonkers world of Joan Koplan and her merry band of security guards. To give…

If “Breaking Bad” Was A Crappy ’90s Family Drama

What might happen if you took "Breaking Bad" and put it in the wayback machine to 1995, mixed a little "Party of Five" and some "Dawson's Creek" in, with liberal helpings of "Walker, Texas Ranger"? You'd have this opening credit segment for "Breaking Bad," positioned as a heartwarming family drama, with plenty of laughs, tear…

Presenting The Frisky Kama Sutra!

So, you've worked your way through all 64 of the Kama Sutra's pleasure postures, even the ones that seem impossible to pull off like the Pair Of Tongs or the Head Spinner. Seriously, how did you do that without hurting yourself? We're impressed. But now, you've reached a sexual crossroads. What do you…

Kris Jenner’s World Domination Is Complete With New Talk Show

God have mercy on us all: Kris Jenner's been given her own limited talk show run on FOX, which will air in the New York City and Los Angeles markets. What, she needs more people to try to control?  [Celebuzz] Chris Brown supposedly punched Frank Ocean outside a West Hollywood recording…

Yay! “Community” Is Almost Back!

How do I love "Community"? Let me count the ways. There's Abed and Troy's Inspector Spacetime hijinks, Jeff Winger's sassy bon mots, and Annie's pervasive neuroses. Britta's awful "therapizing" and Chang's scheming. "Community" is one of the best-written, funniest shows that nobody watches, and after a terribly long hiatus, it's back, Thursday February…

Inside The Real Downton Abbey

Ever wonder about the real story behind "Downton Abbey"'s majestic house? Us too. It seems that the real life Lady and Lord Grantham are actually known as the Eighth Earl and Lady Carnarvon. They've lived in the house for around 20 years, and have restored it to its pre-war heights. And, they just happen to…

“30 Rock” Covers The Lady/Technology Cliche

On last night's "30 Rock," Liz Lemon was honored with an award at Women in Media's "80 Under 80 Who Aren't Betty White" gala event. The only problem? The audio/visual aids weren't properly working, and you know a room full of women had no idea how to solve the problem. I mean, blowing on it…

Rainn Wilson Spoofs Angus T. Jones’ “Two And A Half Men” Freak Out

Remember a couple of days ago when Angus T. Jones, the "half" on "Two And A Half Men," had a major video freak out, and told fans of the show that the sitcom was utter filth? Yeah, that was pretty crazy. Well, now Rainn Wilson and Craig Robinson of "The Office" offer a similar…

A Very “Breaking Bad” Thanksgiving Special

Will we ever tire of "Breaking Bad" parodies? Not likely. And hopefully the parody machine will continue on long after the show (sadly) ends next year. This time we have Walter White and Jesse Pinkman trying to make a Thanksgiving pie. This Jesse and Walt are two of the most convincing versions of the…

Weekend Watch: The Failed Ben Stiller Pilot For “Heat Vision And Jack”

Back in 1999, Ben Stiller got together his pals Jack Black, Owen Wilson and Ron Silver (playing himself!) to make a failed pilot called "Heat Vision and Jack." Black plays a renegade astronaut, whose catchphrase is "knowledge is power, for real" and Wilson plays his friend who was accidentally turned into his motorcycle. Ron Silver…

Frisky Rant: Dez Duron Is Everything That’s Wrong With America

Have you been watching "The Voice"? The vocal talent show features judges Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine coaching singers in a vocal competition. The twist? The judges choose the people on their teams based on voice alone. The idea is that the blind auditions will help select singers who might…

“Portlandia” Is Back And More Yoga-Tastic Than Ever

Namaste, bitches! The third season of "Portlandia" is back, and they've released the first clip! In it, Carrie and Fred play yoga students on a major, uh, journey. The new season features Chloe Sevigny as Fred and Carrie's new roommate, along with the same old group of misfits and weird mayors (Kyle MacLachlan, natch). IFC…

Be My Boyfriend: The “People’s Court” Announcer

There's histrionics, and then there's histrionics. And perhaps nobody knows that better than the announcer guy for "The People's Court." He's turned witty voiceover-speak into a slightly sardonic, possibly passive aggressive and definitely psychotic artform. Just listen!

It’s A “Nashville” Recap, Y’All: Rayna Jaymes Vs. Juliette Barnes

As y'all know (sorry, I'll stop with the y'alls, I swear), I'm a hardcore fan of Connie Britton, so nothing was going to turn me off to her new show, "Nashville." I also happen to be one of those California-raised Northeast transplants that fetishizes the South. I melt the moment Blake Shelton opens his mouth.
