Interview & Live Performance
The amazingly visionary musician Björk appeared on The Colbert Report on Comedy Central last night to promote her new album Biophilia and to perform her single Cosmogony. As you might expect, Björk also afforded host Stephen Colbert with the opportunity to poke a little fun at the somewhat eccentric performer when she sat down to chat with him. Björk rarely does television appearances like this in the US so it was a nice treat to see her on the show last night. Click below to watch video of her interview with Colbert and her live performance of Cosmogony.

Earlier this month we learned that The CW is planning to develop a superhero TV series based on the DC Comics hero Green Arrow. Today we learn that The CW has not only decided to rename the series The Arrow but they have also found their leading man. Actor Stephen Arnell, who starred on the last season of the HBO series Hung, has been cast as The
Green Arrow (and presumably his secret identity Oliver Queen). Click below to learn a bit more about Arnell (ahem, check out his abs) and read more deets about his casting as the lead in The Arrow. More »

The TV Guide
Blah. The good news is that the cold I was coming down with back home in Detroit is almost completely gone (thank you meds) but the bad news is that my allergies kicked into high gear late Sunday night/early Monday morning. A few years ago, I used to suffer from allergy outbreaks of hives but these days, I don’t really get them anymore … that is, unless I’m around cats for extended periods of time. Since I was staying at my BFF Sarah’s place last week, I think her two kitties caused my flare up. Yesterday was mostly an uncomfortable day of hives but, thankfully, they have almost entirely gone away today. Since I wasn’t really in the mood to go out, I got to spend some time watching TV … including last night’s FABULOUS season 4 premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race. More »

Host Steve Jones got Axed, Too
So … you know how last year former American Idol judge Simon Cowell was all excited about his new competitive singing reality show The X Factor and he was all excited about bringing on board judges Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger and host Steve Jones to the show? Yeah, that’s over because all 3 of these people have been FIRED from the show. You may recall that British pop singer Cheryl Cole was originally meant to be a judge on X Factor but she got fired before the show made it air and was replaced with Scherzinger (who, if you consider how she got her job, shouldn’t be all that surprised that she was so easily fired, too). The only person that Simon Cowell didn’t fire is fellow male judge L.A. Reid. Read on for all the gory details of this X Factor bloodbath below. More »

"You Win or You Die"
Late last year we got to see 3 teaser promo videos for the upcoming second season of the hit HBO series Game of Thrones. The first teaser we saw showed us, well, nothing. The second teaser we saw was more a behind the scenes sort of thing that was cool to watch but, again, didn’t show much in the way of new footage. The third teaser we saw felt more like a trailer for the upcoming season, one that showed us actual footage from the show. Today we get our first proper video trailer … and it is AMAZING! Click below to check it out and TELL me you’re not dying for season 2 of Game of Thrones to start RIGHT NOW. More »

"Nice try, MTV"
MTV has decided to bring back the celebrity prank series Punk’d and in order to do so, they have to play new pranks on celebrities to be aired on the show. This weekend, MTV tried to pull a prank on Neil Patrick Harris … and they failed. Earlier in the day yesterday, NPH tweeted a photo of his partner David Burtka telling his Twitter followers that they were about to enjoy a day of rock climbing. A few hours later, Neil tweeted that the jig was up … he was WELL AWARE that MTV was trying to prank him on Punk’d (apparently, there was a bear involved). I guess he wasn’t supposed to publicly let people know that he knew he was being pranked, so he deleted the follow-up tweets. But you can still read all of the relevant Punk’d tweets and see the photo he posted below. More »
