11 Shows You Need To Watch If You Want To Be Relevant

To this day, I think I might be one of the only people on earth who has never seen an episode of “Breaking Bad.” Even though the series has ended, its legend lives on, and I still find myself excluded from any and all Walter White-related water cooler conversation. But once a show has been on the air for a while, it seems like a daunting task to start watching from the beginning, sometimes having to catch up on several seasons, just to be able to understand why everyone keeps saying “bitch” at the end of every sentence. But I learned the hard way: it’s better to be late to the game than to never show up at all. If you’re crippled by FOMO and want to feel like you’re relevant in society, you should be watching at least one of these TV shows with cult followings … even if it means locking yourself inside for the rest of spring. Your street cred will thank you.

Cristina Yang Is Leaving “Grey’s Anatomy” And I Am So Not Emotionally Prepared

You're My Person

Is anybody on this earth still watching “Grey’s Anatomy” besides me? It still rakes in fairly decent ratings, so I know there are at least a few of you out there. How devastated are you that Sandra Oh (aka our beloved Cristina Yang) is leaving the series? The show will have a massive hole in it without her, but I’m begrudgingly okay with it, in some sort of “circle of life” way. Sandra is off to bigger and better things, and her departure is just one more sign that “Grey’s” is no longer the show it once was. It has a new cast trickling in, and even though the series will never be as epic as the first few seasons, that’s totally okay. “Grey’s Anatomy” had to adapt to stay afloat, even if that meant losing some of the sparkle it had in the very beginning.

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.
