The British singer Morrissey is a notoriously ornery guy — and we love him for it. On last night’s episode of “The Colbert Report,” Morrissey and Stephen Colbert went head to head over Morrissey’s strict vegetarian stance and his total distaste for the British royal family. God love Morrissey: he’s like the oldest teenager i…

Amy Poehler Reveals Adam Scott’s Pants Problem

“There’s a lot of things people don’t know about Adam. He loves taking off his pants. Just takes them down all the time. Literally, he cannot keep his pants on. Like, we’ll be doing a scene and we’ll look down and Adam won’t have any pants on, and we’ll be like, ‘Adam! We’re i…

“Gallery Girls” Recap: Of Mice And Middle-Aged Men

A friend of mine noted that, “Watching ‘Gallery Girls’ and attempting to determine which ‘girl’ has the least redeeming qualities is, frankly, exhausting.” I say, that’s a trick question because they’re ALL the least redeeming.

Last night’s episode begins with Eli being terrible to Maggie — again. Eli has Maggie count pebbles while…

“Downton Abbey” Left The Manor For The Olympics

The cast of “Downton Abbey” — both upstairs and downstairs — attended the Olympic Opening Ceremony last Friday. They posed for a group shot in front of the stadium, with Mr. Bates in something of a compromised position. But! Where’s the Dowager Countess? You know she wouldn’t dare mingle with the hoi polloi. And speaking…

“Small Town Security” Recap: The Land Of A Thousand Hoarding Dances

This week’s episode of “Small Town Security” takes a break from chronicling Lieutenant Denis Croft’s time traveling love affair with his boss Chief Joan Koplan, and instead focuses on Joan’s husband Irwin.

“My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding” Hits American Shores

As someone who is some small percentage Gypsy (my mother swears we’re Russian from the Caucaucus mountains), I’m more than a little bit fascinated by Gypsy culture. I’ve watched the UK version of “My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding” and have been blown away by the elaborate wedding ceremonies Gypsy families participate in, passing off their…

Watch: Stevie Nicks Sings With Christina Applegate On “Up All Night”

Last night, Christina Applegate and Maya Rudolph’s awesome show “Up All Night” welcomed special guest Stevie Nicks. We had to wait all episode for her to sing, but when she did, it was well worth it: Here she is sharing a “dream” duet with Christina’s character Reagan.

“Mad Men”‘s Don Draper And Roger Sterling, A Love Story

Is it true that the real love story on “Mad Men” is actually between Roger Sterling and Don Draper? Perhaps it is, perhaps it is. I know I’d like that to be true, and so does Elisa Kreisinger, who created this awesomely subversive take on the show. “The goal was to tell a story about…

17 Things I Learned During The Live Studio Audience Taping Of “What Not To Wear”

Yesterday I attended the first-ever taping of “What Not to Wear” in front of a live studio audience.

“The Bachelor” Sketchbook Is A Brilliant Work Of Art

Artist Lisa Hanawalt did us a solid with her set of sketches and quirky observations about this season of “The Bachelor.” Unlike me, she turned her deep shame about watching the show into art. And the result is far more entertaining than the show could ever have aspired to be. Ugh. Ben was such a…

Style Inspiration: Winona Hawkins From Justified

I started watching “Justified” because my boyfriend has a huge crush on Timothy Olyphant, who plays the main character, Raylan Givens. By the end of the first episode I’d discovered that it’s humanly impossible to not have a crush on Timothy Olyphant, but I was also intrigued by another character: Raylan’s ex-wife, Winona. Not only…

“Community” Tries to Save Itself With Greendale Community College Ad

Maybe you’ve heard about how one of TV’s funniest shows, NBC’s “Community,” has been shelved for the remainder of the fall season, put on hiatus indefinitely because of poor ratings.

Tatyana Ali’s Show “Love That Girl” Fat-Shames A Big Girl … Who Happens To Be My Friend, Erica Watson

“Making fun of the fat girl” is the oldest and most cliché gag in TV history. And when Tatyana Ali’s show “Love That Girl” made fun of a fat girl in a recent episode, they were downright cruel. Instead of using a stock image or say, not mocking a plus-sized woman’s body at all, the…

Yay! Anna Faris Does “SNL” This Weekend

Anyone else convinced Anna Faris on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend is going to be baller? I, for one, am psyched to see her loopy-loo goofy girl humor go head to head with Kristen Wiig. Maybe if we’re lucky she’ll bring that hottie husband of hers, Chris Pratt, along for the ride, too. [NBC]…
