So, this is kind of awkward. While I just excitedly heard the news that the fifth and final season of “Friday Night Lights” will be starting on NBC on April 15, and am still drooling over this 30-second promo video, anyone who has DirecTV witnessed the show’s season finale last night. Now, I had told myself that I was going to read the episode summaries and reviews of the show’s final episode this morning and write something about it today. But I just can’t bring myself to do it and ruin the whole season for myself. This was as far as I got—the first paragraph of The Daily Beast review, before the dreaded “spoiler alert” warning, which tells me that “the series finale gave its characters the happy endings—or new beginnings—that they so desperately deserved.” Does that mean that Tim Riggins packs up his truck and comes to meet me in New York?

Nothing says “Be My Valentine” like forcing three ladies to strip down, put on red bikinis, and shoot photos for Sports Illustrated

You should probably sit down for the news that I’m about to tell you, because it might provoke anger, rage, and the desire to throw things at your television. Apparently Heidi Montag—yes, Heidi Montag of backscooping and “The Hills” fame—is being considered for the next season of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” (As we told you earlier in the week, Brandi Glanville and Sylvester Stallone’s wife have also come up as contenders for spots on the show.) Sources say Heidi has met with “Housewives” producers and is actively pursuing the opportunity with every cup size she’s got. “We would move to Beverly Hills in a heartbeat,” her hubby Spencer Pratt said in response to the rumor. “We would be psyched if this happened for us.” Bravo, please do not give these attention whores another shot at the spotlight. Let their 15 minute of fame finally tick down. [PopEater] Keep reading »
Bust out your pom-poms, ‘cause tonight is “Hellcats” night!
