Will Ferrell And Kristen Wiig Are Starring In A Bonkers Lifetime Movie

I normally don’t fuck with Will Ferrell (epic “Drunk In Love” karaoke notwithstanding), because as funny as he is, no one can grate more. But this, I can get behind: Ferrell and Kristin Wiig will be starring in a new Lifetime movie, “A Deadly Adoption.”

As THR first reported, the campy thriller was already filmed and…

The Ladies Of “Mad Men” Look Good As Hell

I hardly remember what happened at the end of the last half-season of “Mad Men,” but it doesn’t matter — this picture of the ladies of “Mad Men” wearing their best late-’60s to early-’70s poly-chiffon-couture, plus whatever that glorious mess that Megan is wearing got me super, super excited. Look at Betty! Look at that…

This Is The Best Episode Of “Dr. Phil” You’ve Ever Seen

Even the “best” episode of a show like “Dr. Phil” would be setting the bar pretty low, but this clip removes the shrill, nightmare-y quality by presenting us with nothing but reaction shots. No dialogue. In the words of the YouTuber who posted it, “They say it best when they say nothing at all.”…

10 Reasons Most “Bachelor” Relationships Don’t Work Out

I’ve been watching “The Bachelor” since middle school. Yeah, it’s been on for that long, and I remember watching the first “Bachelor” couple in history say “I do.” Those two were Trista and Ryan.

2014 Happened In Slow Motion

Apparently slo-mo was the video effect of choice in 2014, because as this video demonstrates, everyone used it. Beyoncé, “Gone Girl,” “True Detective,” “The Lego Movie,” “The Fault In Our Stars,” Taylor Swift, even the “Turn Down for What” video.
I could go ahead and give you some armchair philosophy about how fast the…

It’s happening! TLC has approved a late-night show hosted by crude (and super funny) comedienne Margaret Cho called “All About Sex.” The first episode will air January 10, and it (appropriately) comes on just after “Sex Sent Me To The ER.” Thank goodness for DVR, because as much as I would love to stay u…

Lifetime Has Cast Their Ariel Castro For “The Michelle Knight Story”

Lifetime has a reputation for toeing the line of good taste, but this is just … ugh.

Jennifer Lawrence hung out on “The Colbert Report”‘ last night and cranked out her charming interview banter at always. She also informed us that she’s skinned a squirrel, so there’s that.
