College Courses On “Downton Abbey” Include Tea And Scones

Stuck in a senioritis rut? Would a class on “Downton Abbey” make you stop texting during a lecture? Camden County College in New Jersey is now offering a course called “Downton Abbey: Life In A Country House.” At first I wanted to laugh, but it actually sounds really interesting. The course covers things like “The…

Fox Picks Up John Mulaney Sitcom: Get To Know The Comedian And “Saturday Night Live” Writer

I like to think that Louis C.K. set the scene for other stand-up comedians to take over our televisions, one sitcom at a time: his uniquely-formatted single-camera show, “Louie,” is one of the best, most interesting things in entertainment right now, and is as ground-breaking today as it was when it first aired in 2010.

Rebel Wilson’s New Sitcom “Super Fun Night” Is Super Unfunny

Well, that’s a disappointment! As much as we — and everyone else, because come on, who doesn’t love Rebel Wilson? — wanted the actress’s new show “Super Fun Night,” which premiered last night, to be the new best thing ever, the actuality of the show is more like our worst fears for it realized. The…

To Celebrate The Emmys, Richard Simmons Cosplayed As Daenerys Targaryen

There is really nothing I can say about how Richard Simmons—who, in addition to being a pop culture fitness icon, co-starred in one of the best “Whose Line Is it Anyway?” sketches ever, just FYI—took to Twitter during the Emmys to post pictures of himself cosplaying as characters from “Game of Thrones”, “Breaking Bad”, “America…

10 Reasons Lisa Simpson Is The Only Role Model You’ll Need

Lisa Simpson is what can only be described as one of the greatest feminist characters in cartoon history. Every week my family would watch The Simpsons on Sunday as a ritual, so I can say that without a doubt that I wonder if I would be the person I am today without Lisa Simpson’s bookish,…

Lizzy Caplan Talks X-Rated Cookbooks, Masturbation & “Masters Of Sex” With Conan

Dear Hollywood: USE LIZZY CAPLAN MORE. She’s only, you know, PERFECT, and I just cannot fathom how she hasn’t been put to better use. What is it about her that just seems to go straight to DVD?!

Is It Just Us, Or Is Carrie Underwood’s “Sound Of Music” Poster Kinda … Creepy?

Don’t get me wrong. I adore Carrie Underwood. She is one of my favorite singers/performers and I’m secretly kind of excited she’s taking on the role of Maria Von Trapp for a TV movie version of “The Sound of Music” even though most people seem to think this is NBC’s second worst idea…

A Loving Tribute To Krissi Biasiello Of “MasterChef” Season 4 (In Pics & GIFs!)

Never before has “MasterChef” had a proper villain like Krissi Biasiello, the single mom from Philly who admits to “having some evilness goin’ on inside.” While we don’t laud her racist tweets, we do appreciate a cooking show contestant who can fry up a batch of calamari while wearing door knocker earrings and shit-talking her…

The Dong Show: 10 Penises Featured On HBO

Last week, the girls of College Humor had a “boner” to pick with HBO about their lack of dongs. Whether they show them “in between the boobs” or on their own, they plead with the network to show us “an inch of grade A man meat” for every pair of breasts. A fair request. The…

Spielberg-Produced Female Astronaut Drama Greenlit By CBS

If Steven Spielberg’s resume as a director has an equal, it’s his legacy as a producer. Well, at least it is for this fan of “Pinky and the Brain”, “Animaniacs”, “Freakazoid!”, and “Tiny Toon Adventures”.

Okay, I suppose he’s also produced some live action television that’s made its mark, and that’s probably the…
