How Sofia Vergara’s TV Son Defeated His Crush On Her

“At first, I had a little crush on her. But then I was like, ‘No,’ because she plays my mom every day. So I said, ‘I’ll scrap that idea.’ My older friends—like the 15-year-olds—they go, ‘Yeah, your mom is—you know.’ I said, ‘No, I don’t know what you mean.’”

—Rico Rodriguez of “Modern Family” talks about defeating his crush on Sofia Vergara, who plays his mama on the show [People] Keep reading »

Of Course UC Berkeley Offers A Class On “Mad Men”

I have spent many an hour studying Jon Hamm’s raw, natural manliness. But is studying “Mad Men” in the ivy-colored halls of academia an equally frivolous pursuit? The University of California at Berkeley, a.k.a. a school with free-thinkin’ hippie roots, offers a two-credit class in which students analyze “Mad Men” like a work of literature. Keep reading »

The Boob Tube: Must-See TV For The Week Of October 25, 2010

There is a serious injustice happening on our televisions this week. Folks with DirecTV will start enjoying the final season of “Friday Night Lights” on Wednesday night, while those of us without will have to wait until … the freaking spring. Luckily, there is lots going on to temper this travesty—and most of it is going down live. First, catch Jerry Springer’s 20th anniversary special. Next, see Barack Obama on “The Daily Show.” And finally, witness the “Saturday Night Live” dream team—host Jon Hamm with musical guest Rihanna. Previews and more shows you need to see, after the jump.

Jane Lynch Surrounded By Beefcakes

OK, so these images of Jane Lynch aren’t going to incite the same uproar as the Terry Richardson images of Gleeks Lea Michele and Dianna Agron in the November GQ. But still, we like that they took Sue Sylvester out of the track suit and gave her a glam moment. Oh, and surrounded her with scantily clad dudes. [People]

Another image after the jump. Keep reading »

A Show For Celebrity Name-A-Likes

Will I ever get sick of celeb-reality TV shows? I’m doubting it, because I am kind of fascinated by the concept for this new show, “The Same Name,” which CBS has just ordered a pilot for. The show will take normal folks who share their name with a celebrity, and have them switch places with their famous doppelganger as the cameras roll. Here’s hoping they can find a Kim Kardashian who’s a Sunday school teacher in a small town. Or at least a Heidi Montag who’s a garbage woman. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

Our “Rocky Horror Picture Show” Memories


Get ready to do the time warp again, because “Rocky Horror Picture Show” is having a real moment. Next Tuesday’s episode of “Glee” will be an homage to the ’70s rock opera that still plays at midnight showings all around the country. Rachel will of course channel Susan Sarandon as Janet. Finn will be her Brad and Kurt will be Riff Raff. Apparently, John Stamos was originally going to be Dr. Frank-N-Furter, but the network wasn’t so comfortable with him signing “Sweet Transvestite.” So Mercedes will do it instead. And that’s not all. Apparently, “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy is in talks to direct a remake of the flick.

Since many members of The Frisky staff have fond “Rocky Horror” memories (will I ever forget the time my car broke down on the way home from a midnight screening and how awkward I felt talking to the tow truck driver while I was dressed as Columbia?), we thought we’d share them after the jump.
