Earlier this month we learned that MTV has decided to dedicate the upcoming season of The Challenge: Battle of the Exes II will be dedicated to castmembers Diem Brown and Ryan Knight, who both passed away after the season wrapped filming production. Today we get to see the just-released first trailer for the new season of the show. As you may know, Diem‘s illness resulted in her early exit from the show and we get to see a bit of that at the start of this trailer. The rest of the trailer looks pretty standard so, yeah, it should be a great season. Battle of the Exes II will premiere on MTV on January 6 at 9PM.

Yesterday was a pretty quiet day for me, even tho I did go out last night to meet up for a much overdue dinner hang with my friend Tamar. I haven’t seen her since she moved into her new place but she has been crazy busy getting resettled into her new place. When last I saw her place, it was a crazed jumble of boxes. Over the last few weeks, Tam has transformed her new place into a beautiful home. After we chilled for a bit at her place, we grabbed a bite to eat on Abbot Kinney. After I got home, I got to watch a preview of my friend Darion on his new Bravo TV show Friends to Lovers? and that was my night. More »

From Noted Barrister to Mrs. Clooney
Amal Alamuddin became a celebrity this year when she married longtime bachelor/divorcé George Clooney and almost overnight went from being a very successful barrister (lawyer) to becoming Mrs. George Clooney. Journalist Barbara Walters is among Amal‘s fans and this year named her as one of the 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014. Walters did not bestow this “honor” on Alamuddin because she was a law clerk for now US Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor or because she represented Julian Assange as his attorney or because of her human rights work, no, she named Amal Alamuddin — sorry, Amal Clooney THE most fascinating person of the year because of the man that she married.

He also talks 'Black Mirror'! Are you watching?!
Jon Hamm has been promoting the upcoming Black Mirror Christmas special, and I cannot wait to tune in to this show. Black Mirror is a UK series that I’ve been hearing about, and now that it’s on Netflix I’m just waiting for the perfect day to binge-watch. One of my Paste writers wrote a great list about it, and it sounds so twisted and brilliant—it focuses on our addiction to technology, and online social connections. The fact that Jon Hamm has co-signed it now, also helps. In a recent interview, Hamm opened up about his unique position in Hollywood, and makes some great points. Click inside for more!
It took me a while to get on the Parks and Recreation train, but I started watching on Netflix earlier this year, and have been in love with the show ever since. The entire cast and crew has been sharing tons of photos from the set on Twitter, because they just finished shooting their last episode. As in, their last episode ever. These pictures are adorable—even the ones where Nick Offerman is giving the finger… especially those one. Click inside for more!
Prepare to be as bored as Charli looks
NBC just released the promo videos for this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live which will feature The Hobbit star Martin Freeman as host and Charli XCX as musical guest. I have a feeling that the video above is very representative of what we can expect from this weekend’s episode of SNL. I’ll tune in to watch Charli XCX‘s musical performances, tho. Believe that.
Steve Carell made a special appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night to partake in a fun performance of Marvin Gaye‘s song Sexual Healing with Fallon‘s barbershop quartet group The Ragtime Gals. As you might expect, Carell‘s performance with The Ragtime Gals was entertaining, if far from perfect. So, if you’ve ever wondered what Sexual Healing would sound like as a barbershop quartet ragtime song, wonder no longer and have a listen above.

Last night, the series finale episode of Sons of Anarchy aired on FX bringing to a close the 7 season series that loosely told the tale of Shakespeare‘s Hamlet through the lives of a California motorcycle club. I made sure to be in front of my TV set last night to watch the series finale episode Papa’s Goods live as it aired so that the finale wouldn’t be spoiled in any way. I will recap the episode below with commentary and animated gifs so if you have yet to watch last night’s episode, you might want to come back after you do. Altho Sons of Anarchy was far from a perfect show, it definitely ended in a way that left many fans very satisfied and other fans very unsatisfied … which is exactly what one should expect from a series finale episode of any TV show.
