Us Frisky ladies are getting pretty into “The Voice,” thanks to the fact that it’s all about the singing and not about image, like “American Idol” can be. For the past two weeks , Christina Aguilera, Cee-Lo Green, Blake Shelton, and Adam Levine have been busily assembling their 8-person teams that will battle it out for the next few weeks. The way it worked was simple—a singer belted out a song as the four listened with their backs turned. If a team leader pressed their red button, they’d turn around and that person would be on their team. If more than one of them turned around, the singer could choose the person’s whose team they were most pumped to join. (Duh. Cee-Lo!) If no one pressed their button, the singer was out.
Christina says things got pretty heated when more than one team leader wanted a singer. Keep reading »
Lord, what have we done? Am I not tithing enough? Am I too mean to my mother? Is this because I kicked my parents’ dog when he was begging under the table during Easter dinner? Why, oh why, has The Situation been given his own TV show? Mike Sorrentino has signed a series development deal with MTV and will start filming later this year. Although no plans are specific yet, no good can come of this. Imagine all that booze-infused date rape-y douchiness distilled into one show.

“Celebrity Apprentice” has been hyping this girl fight between Nene Leakes and Star Jones all season. I’ve been watching and waiting, but was starting to think it was never going to happen. But OH. It went down on Sunday night. Nene went totally batty on Star in front of Donald Trump and the Biosilk/Chi executive. Awkward! Cringeworthy! My thoughts, after the jump. Keep reading »
Sometimes, there just isn’t enough time in an episode for all of our favorite characters to get a moment in the sun.
On almost every show there’s an unsung hero, always supporting the main players, only getting thrown a bone every now and then. Depending on the show, some characters are just given the shaft season after season. If we were calling the shots, these characters would come front and center (at least for a multi-episode arc!) and have their moment in the sun.
From characters who deal with the undead to a blue-haired cartoon boy, we want to see more of these characters on screen ASAP. Read more… Keep reading »
I have some truly, truly, truly outrageous news. My new favorite network, The Hub, will start airing reruns of “Jem and the Holograms” on May 31. “Jem” was hands down my favorite cartoon of the ’80s, and I guess in many ways was the precursor to “Hannah Montana.” I distinctly remember the joy of racing home after school to watch owner of Starlight Music, Jerrica Benton, transform herself (thank you, Synergy!) into pink-haired rock star and frontwoman of the rad band, Jem and the Holograms. Honestly, my favorite part of the show was their rival band The Misfits. Heck, I was even Stormer for Halloween two years ago. I cannot wait to rewatch this series. I already have The Misfits anthem, “Welcome to the Jungle,” in my head. [EW] Keep reading »
American culture is spreading throughout the world … spreading like herpes. Behold, a British version of “Jersey Shore” on MTV UK: “Geordie Shore” stars thickly accented lads and lasses Jay, Vicky, Gary, Charlotte-Letitia, James, Sophie, Greg and Holly — who says she is “fierce, flirty and I’ve got double Fs!” — in the northeastern city of Newcastle. It’ll air Tuesday, May 24 at 10 p.m. in the UK. British “Jersey Shore” proves the allure of fake tans, tube tops, and puking your guts out is indeed universal. But — serious question — do they fist pump?
