The 1996 Coen Brothers movie “Fargo” is coming to the small screen next month, and FX has released teaser trailers!

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.
