Fox To Air Live Performance Of “Grease”

Fox is producing a three-hour live performance of the 1978 hit film “Grease” (which is also based on a 1971 Broadway musical, but let’s not act like we knew the play existed before the movie). “Grease Live” will air sometime next year, so you have plenty of time to buy your Pink Ladies jacket and learn how to look cool smoking a cigarette.

The 12 Most Sexually Explicit Tweets From Christopher Meloni Fans (NSFWish)

This Thursday, Christopher Meloni returns to television as the titular character in the half-hour Fox comedy “Surviving Jack.”  And we couldn’t be happier.  Why?  Residual checks.  But also, Thursday marks the culmination of a marathon that may not have gone past the starting line without Chris Meloni leading the pack.

He was everyone’s first choice for the role, hands down: an actor with a rare combination of likeability—the holy grail of casting—and shit-inducing scariness.  The billboards read, in bold red block letters: “Putting the ‘F’ back in Fatherhood.”  One need only recall a couple of shows in Chris’s past body of work to know he could put the “F” in just about anything.  The guy thrived for several years of maximum-security lockup as sociopathic inmate Chris Keller on HBO’s prison drama “OZ,” and spent 12 seasons on NBC’s “Law & Order: SVU”(12 seasons!) cleaning scum off the streets of New York as Detective Elliot Stabler.

With a resume like that, an actor will surely garner a group of fans.  But Meloni comes with a special army of devotees—self-proclaimed “Melonians”—whose appreciation for the star goes far beyond his acting chops.

We’re of course talking about his man parts.   Keep reading »

Oprah’s Tired Of Lindsay Lohan’s Bullshit, And Is The Only Person Not Afraid To Tell Her

Oprahs-Tired-Of-Lindsay-Lohans-Bullshit-And-Is-The-Only-Person-Not-Afraid-To-Tell-Her
"You need to cut the bullshit."

Despite all of Lindsay Lohan’s countless fuck-ups, she still appears to be surrounded by entourage of sycophants. Everyone, that is, but Oprah Winfrey. Documentary filmmaker Amy Rice teamed up with OWN for a new docu-series that gives a peek behind the curtain of the troubled actress’ life.

“There’s nothing left in having a drink for me…There’s no party that I haven’t gone to, there’s no person that I haven’t hung out with,there’s no situation that, you know, I haven’t been exposed to,” Lilo crows in the trailer’s opening sequence, more like a 77-year-old than a 27-year-old.

10 Reasons To Start Watching “Bates Motel” If You’re Not Already (In GIFs!)

10 Reasons To Start Watching "Bates Motel" If You're Not Already (In GIFs!)

Last night was the season two premiere of “Bates Motel,” which has easily become one of the best TV shows I ever got sucked into. Before the first season even started, someone over at A&E mailed me the first four episodes to screen, which I watched all in one night. I then had to wait another month until I could watch the new episodes, but when I did, they were AMAZING. Equal parts creepy and endearing, the show is a contemporary prequel to the horror flick “Psycho,” and reveals the backstory of murderer Norman Bates.

If you’re not already watching “Bates Motel,” here are 10 reasons you should start (in GIFs)… Keep reading »

The “Breaking Bad” Theme Song Gets An A Cappella Cover

"Breaking Bad," A Cappella-Style

Admittedly a cappella is not for everyone. For those of you who are suffering from “Breaking Bad” withdrawal (all of us), have a listen to this a cappella cover of the show’s theme song. The Warp Zone, the group of comedians behind the video, have done the same for theme songs of shows like “Doctor Who” and “Game of Thrones.” And they do it in costume! Have a listen?

How To Live Life The Oprah Way (Even Though You’re Broke And Totally Not Oprah)

How To Live Life The Oprah Way (Even Though You're Broke And Totally Not Oprah)

Oprah, the great television goddess and overall beacon of awesomeness, turned 60 on Wednesday. She’s still as fierce as ever, and I’m more than a little obsessed with her. She shared way-too-grown-up facts of life with me on my TV after school starting when I was in the single digits. She also taught me important stuff like what bra size to wear, what it’s like to sleep with Joey Buttafuoco and how to get out of debt. She made me cry a lot too. Here’s how to live like Oprah, even if you are broke and are most definitely not Oprah. Keep reading »

5 Imagined Ways “American Horror Story: Coven” Could—And Should—End

It’s finally time for the world to learn the fate of the witches we’ve come to love and loathe from “American Horror Story: Coven.” I’ve been faithfully watching all season, and I’m not ready for the sick and twistedness to end, but tonight’s season finale is sure to shock, as the girls of the Coven will test their powers to determine who will become the new Supreme.

But before we find out who will become Queen Witch Bitch, we’ve come up with a few scenarios that could happen, and a few that probably won’t … but would kick ass anyway.  Keep reading »

Prepare To Aww: It’s The 2014 Puppy Bowl Starting Lineup!

They’re really stepping up their game for Puppy Bowl X. There won’t be a mass wedding officiated by Queen Latifah (as far as I know), but there will be aerial coverage done by some sort of fluffy rodents, penguin cheerleaders and a half-time performance by Keyboard Cat!

You can check out the in this gallery and pick your favorite pooches. I feel like Alvin the Poodle has that MCP (Most Cuddlable Puppy) look about him.
