4 Reasons You Should Watch "Big Brother"
Seriously, here are four reasons to DVR the reality show. Read More »

I tried to resist, but I failed. For the second year in a row, I’ve decided to subscribe to the “Big Brother” livefeeds. The reality show’s 16th season kicked off last week, the livefeeds turned on last Friday, and the drama started almost immediately. The 16 houseguests have barely been living together for 10 days, but already a romance is a-brewin’. But unfortunately for those involved, it’s completely, totally, disturbingly one-sided.

Why Did It Take “True Blood” This Long To Give Us Hot Sex Between Eric And Jason?

Why Did It Take "True Blood" This Long To Give Us Hot Sex Between Eric And Jason?
DAMN DAMN DAMN DAMN DAMN

I stopped watching “True Blood” last season because the things I liked (Eric, Eric’s bare ass, Lafayette, Pam) were failing to make up for the things I didn’t like (Sookie, Bill, Sookie’s DERP face, Sam, Alcide speaking). Summer TV blows, though, so I decided to give the show another shot since it’s its last season — and boy, am I glad I did. I guess while I wasn’t watching last season, vampire Eric gave some of his blood to Jason Stackhouse, which explains why the latter has the world’s hottest sex dream about the former on last night’s episode. Can we please get more of this? Like, every episode? Perhaps instead of any scenes featuring Sookie and Bill? Let’s have “True Blood” go out in an explosion of hot gay sex, mmkay? Because this shit was hooooootttttttt (and a tiny bit awkward, but mostly hoooooootttttt).

Not to brag or whatever, but NYC had the cast of “Orange is the New Black” in attendance, including Danielle Brooks (Tastee), Yael Stone (Morello), Samira Wiley (Poussey), Matt McGorry (Bennett) and Laverne Cox (Sophia), who was Grand Marshall for the parade.

Watching TV Is Killing Us, According To Science

Our worst fears are confirmed:  TV is bad — like, really bad — for our health. Anyone could have hypothesized that tons of binge-watching isn’t ideal, but as it turns out, watching more than an hour of TV per day is plain dangerous.

For the study, researchers from the University of Navarra in Spain observed 13,284 participants over the course of four years. They found that those who watched three or more hours of TV a day had a doubled risk of mortality compared to those who watched less than an hour per day.

Well, that’s dark. Keep reading »

Weekend Shut-In Worksheet: Read Friendship By Emily Gould, See "Begin Again" & Make Salted Caramel S'mores

Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either. There will always be another party, another pub crawl, another picnic. The time you’ll spend indulging in the things you want to do, alone, are well worth it. Here’s a handy list of awesome things to do this weekend! Keep reading »

Study: “27 Dresses” And “The Bachelorette” Are Messing With Your Love Life

The Best & Worst Moments From Last Night's Finale Of "The Bachelor"

Researchers have found evidence that watching rom-coms and sitcoms impact our views on love. TV seems to shape our view of reality in every other realm of life, so I’m not exactly shocked it’s also true for romance.

Why Dave Is Still Single, a study by University of Michigan researchers, asked participants how frequently they watch rom-coms, marriage-themed reality shows and sitcoms.They discovered that participants who watch a lot of rom-coms and romantic reality shows were more likely to believe in things like love at first sight and “The One” – you know, the stuff that keeps us forever alone because we’re stubbornly waiting for some ever-elusive meet cute with a Ken doll that will never arrive. These participants were more likely to agree with phrases like “My ‘true love’ will be nearly perfect” or the concept that they’d know immediately if their significant other was right for them.

Behold, The Pugs Of Westeros!

Behold, The Pugs Of Westeros!
The Night Is Dark And Full Of Pugs

Phillip and Sue Lauer have (at least) two big passions in life: their pugs Roxy, Blue and Bono, and the book/TV series “Game of Thrones.” Naturally, like any decent dog-obsessed nerds with a lot of time of their hands, they’ve meticulously recreated the HBO show with their pups playing the various characters, including Jon Snow, Joffrey Baratheon and Daenarys Targaryen. There’s even a puppy-sized Iron Throne that took two full days to make! Impressive. [Buzzfeed]

What We Want To See Go Down In The Final Season Of “True Blood”

What We Want To See Go Down In The Final Season Of "True Blood"

Like that troublesome ex-boyfriend that you sleep with once a year, just in the summer when it’s steamy out and you’re peak tan, “True Blood” is back for its final season, and things sure look interesting! The series has had its peaks and valleys, but as of late has grown into an unwieldy beast, plucking storylines out of thin air and weaving them together with dental floss, spit and gumption. This season looks to make a return to its roots, with a good, old-fashioned showdown between good and evil.

If you can’t remember what happened in season six, here’s a brief recap: Terry died. Luna died. The terrible governor of Louisiana died, but not before he made an underground vampire concentration camp where he was performing medical tests and torture on vampires. The world’s supply of TruBlood has been infected with Hepatitis V, a horrible disease that causes vampires to die a slow, melty, gooey death. Sookie met Warlow , the bad vampire/faerie that killed her family, fell in love with him, almost married him, and then realized that he was shitty after all, so Jason killed him. Bill became a new super-vampire, drinking the essence of Lilith, and actually isn’t that bad anymore. And the last time we saw Eric, he was nude and on fire on a glacier in Sweden. Check out our hopes and dreams for the citizens of Bon Temps, after the jump, and don’t forget to watch the season premiere tonight on HBO! Keep reading »
