Bust out your pom-poms, ‘cause tonight is “Hellcats” night! Since The Frisky’s own Kate Torgovnick happens to be an expert on college cheerleading—after all, the show is based on her book, CHEER!: Inside the Secret World of College Cheerleaders—every Wednesday we have her sound off on how the show stacks up to reality.
Tonight’s episode of “Hellcats” is kind of awesome—we’ll get the back story on how Savannah, Alice, Louis, and Vanessa ended up in their blue and yellow uniforms. Oh, and Marti will be officially initiated, which involves … yeah, I don’t want to ruin the surprise.
Which brings us to the question: what do cheerleaders generally have to do for initiation? Keep reading »
Sometimes when “Glee
” goes off the air for a little while, I convince myself that I am over its saccharine song and dance numbers. But it never happens—once I watch again, BAM! I am instantly re-hooked. That’s what happened last night when I begrudgingly watched the show’s much-hyped return after the Super Bowl

After the jump, see the Cheerios do “California Gurls” complete with fireworks bras. Keep reading »
Even WIlliam Shatner couldn’t get me the slightest bit interested in watching “$#*! My Dad Says.” Everything about the sitcom looks terrible, from the title, to the based-on-a-Twitter-feed concept, to the promos which … blah. And now, the show has figured out yet another way to turn me off. Camille Grammer of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills“—aka the woman currently divorcing Kelsey Grammar—will be a guest star i=on the season finale. She will be playing a woman named Camille, a reality star going through a divorce who is in the process of house hunting, which totally sounds like a stretch. Maybe she’ll be as good in this as she was in her adult films? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
and Aly Michalka
of The CW series “Hellcats
” were very concerned at yesterday’s revelation that there will be no cheerleaders at this Sunday’s Super Bowl game
for the first time in 45 years, since neither the Green Bay Packers nor the Pittsburgh Steelers have them. And so they made a pretty adorable public service announcement about this very serious issue. Props to them for not taking this news with their pom-poms lying down. Keep reading »
