“There’s nothing less interesting than a nice guy … sure, he might be great to marry and have kids with, but in terms of entertainment value, who gives a [bleep]? I enjoy playing characters who are damaged and kind of, well, [bleep]holes.”

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.

I know what you’re thinking—cheerleaders playing football? But you’ll be surprised to know that this plot line is very real. Keep reading »
Did anyone happen to catch Zack Morris, I mean Mark-Paul Gosselaar, on the latest episode of “Weeds”? Nancy (Mary-Louise Parker) goes into an empty bar in Podunk and encounters a hot-as-s**t bartender. I was gawking at my TV screen trying to figure out who the hottie was slinging those beers.

We’re a few weeks into the fall TV season, and a lot of shows are hitting it out of the ballpark so far—”How I Met Your Mother,” “Glee,” “America’s Next Top Model,” “Hellcats,” and “Modern Family” to name a few. But this week, the television I’m most interested in watching is going down on Thursday and Sunday nights. After the jump, see the great shows airing those nights, from the premiere of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” to a live episode of “30 Rock” to the season finale of “Mad Men.”
