Remote Control: What You’ll Want To Watch The Week Of October 5th 2009

For the first time in a month, there are not a lot of series premieres happening this week. So, it’s time to sit back, relax, and watch the shows you already love. This week, Tyra Banks and Hilary Duff make cameos on “Gossip Girl,” Rachel Zoe has a “fashion orgasm” in Paris, Jim and Pam get hitched on “The Office,” “FlashForward” gets trippier, and Wanda Sykes makes you say hardy har har. Here’s the best of this week’s television. Keep reading »

Lady Gaga (With A Thumbs Up From Madonna) Kills It On “SNL”


If Lady Gaga didn’t end up winning over some of her haters last night, after performing on “Saturday Night Live,” then they’re a lost cause. The pop diva absolutely knocked it out of the park, performing both “Paparazzi” and a medley of her songs, including “Poker Face” (in a gyroscope-enabled dress, natch) — showing off not only her ability to put on an entertaining show, but also her singing talent. Madonna showed up to join Gaga in one of my personal favorite regular skits, “Deep House Dish,” which came off a little awkward, but still was a nice little endorsement from the Queen of Pop. Clip of that, after the jump. Keep reading »

Is Rachel Bilson The One We’ve Been Waiting For On “How I Met Your Mother?”

We’ve waited patiently (SO PATIENTLY) for four years to find out who will be the titular mother on our fave sitcom, “How I Met Your Mother.” According to Michael Ausiello of Entertainment Weekly, the show’s executive producer told him that episode #100 of the show would contain “some serious mother action.” He elaborated, “It’ll be the closest Ted’s ever come to her. He’s getting a step closer every episode this season, and episode 100 we kind of go bananas with it.” And guess who Ausiello has just discovered has been cast for a role in episode 100? The amazing Rachel Bilson. I’m jumping up and down because that’s so freaking adorable. [EW]

Ryan Reynolds And Lady Gaga Do “SNL” This Weekend

Let’s talk about how mother-effing excited I am for this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live.” Yes, last week’s season premiere totally blew, but tomorrow night, Mr. Scarlett Johansson, aka my second favorite Ryan in Hollywood — Ryan Reynolds — is hosting, with musical guest, Lady Gaga. This shiz is gonna be hot. Promo above. Keep reading »

James Franco Is Checking Into “General Hospital”

Here’s some WTF news: James Franco has signed on for a role on “General Hospital,” which will have him hanging in Port Charles for two months. According to Soapnet, “He’ll be playing a mysterious character who will … make Jason’s life a living hell.” Jason is a mobster who was once a prepster who went bad after a head injury. I stopped watching “General Hospital” after Carly 2.0 left and the rest of the cool characters turned into pansies, but I might have to start DVRing this s**t, just to see Franco have deep conversations by the dock, make sweet SFW love under strategically draped sheets, and do that awesome delayed-look-into-the-camera acting technique.

Shop Around The World With Anthropologie Buyer Keith Johnson


My job is pretty sweet, but a few people’s occupations are absolutely drool-worthy. One career that sounds amazing is being a buyer for Anthropologie. Walking into that store makes me feel like I’m stepping into the apartment of an awesome friend who just got back from a week’s vacation in Capetown, lived in Spain for two years, and spent her childhood in Sweden.

Could A “Friends” Movie Be On The Way?

For years, I wanted to be friends with “Friends.” But the TV show was canceled in 2004, as the 30-something cast slid more toward the “something” end of the spectrum. NBC seemed to think audiences weren’t interested in watching Monica, Rachel, Phoebe and their significant others settle into family lives. But Matthew Perry is such an expressive comedian—just think of what he’d have done with changing the diapers of twins! Ever since the series ended, fans and tabloids have never quite stopped wondering whether a big-screen adaptation would happen. Now, with the furor over “Sex and the City 2,” the din is getting louder. The Daily Mail reports that Warner Brothers is willing to pay big bucks to bring all six cast members together and that the stars have already agreed to the reunion. The actor who played coffee shop downer Gunther on the show says this is true. “‘Friends: The Movie’ is definitely on,” he told News of the World. “I still keep in touch with a lot of the cast and they say that they are really keen [to do it]. I am definitely on board to do the film.” But other sources say this is total rubbish. I guess we’ll have to wait and find out. Could I BE more disappointed? [MTV]

An All-Lady Group Finally Wins “America’s Best Dance Crew”


Sorry I’m a day late on this—I rely way too heavily on my DVR. On Sunday night, “America’s Best Dance Crew” crowned a winner. For the first time in four seasons, the winning crew—We Are Heroes—is totally female. The group was founded by Hiroka “Hero” Mcrae, who moved from Japan to Los Angeles and decided to put together a crew of female dancers, even though she barely spoke English. She brought together gals who had everything from hip hop to ballroom dance experience, and somehow taught them all to pop like champions. Before appearing on “ABDC,” We Are Heroes performed with Kanye West, Ciara and (random!) Earth, Wind & Fire. The ladies aren’t sure what they’re going to do with the $100,000 prize money, but they do know what’s happening with their trophy—they are sending it to Hiroka’s grandmother, who is sick in Japan.

Who Do You Want To See In An All-Gay Version Of “Real Housewives”?

… And We F**king Love Them For That: SNL’s Jenny Slate & Other Fleeting Expletives on TV

The 35th season premiere of “Saturday Night Live” dropped a bomb on American TV screens – an F-bomb. On her first night on last weekend’s show, newest cast member Jenny Slate swore during the “Biker Chick Chat” skit. Slate’s only the most recent example of the “fleeting expletive” (an instance of profane language or images on a live broadcast). Here are some more examples of live profanity on television.

  • “Saturday Night Live” has long been a bastion of bad language. The most famous instance came in 1981 when cast member Charles Rocket slipped up during a skit parodying Dallas and its “Who Shot J.R.?” episode, uttering “Oh man, it’s the first time I’ve been shot in my life. I’d like to know who the f**k did it.” (Rocket was fired later that year.) A year before Rocket’s expletive incident, future “Letterman” bandleader Paul Shaffer had let one loose. And in the ‘90s cast members Norm MacDonald and Cheri Oteri also cursed during the show. [NBC Miami]
  • Rock stars have kept the FCC working overtime, too. When U2 appeared at the Golden Globes in 2003, frontman Bono described winning as “really, really f**king brilliant!” The government agency also looked into Motley Crue singer Vince Neil’s exuberant “Happy F**king New Year!” on the “Tonight Show”‘s Dec. 31 broadcast. After a 2005 “SNL” performance, NBC also had to answer for System of a Down guitarist Daron Malakian, who yelled “f**k yeah!” (System was performing their song “B.Y.O.B.,” which frequently uses the line “Where the f**k are you?”).
