The TV Guide
What a difference a day makes. On Saturday, I was back home in Michigan suffering thru 30 degree temperatures … and yesterday, I was out and about here in SoCal enjoying temps in the high 70s. Tamar and her father Richard graciously invited me to go on a hike with them in Griffith Park and I gladly accepted. We spent a couple of hours climbing up to the summit of our trail and then back down to Earth again. It was just what I needed to get my bearings back again. The rest of the day was spent running around taking care of errands and then last night was spent on the couch catching up on some TV. My Sunday was a very nice one, I have to say. More »
How do we love Gabriel Mann AKA Nolan Ross? Let me count the ways. When I first binge-watched season one of Revenge I was all like, ‘Who is this guy and where can I get his caridgans?‘ Nolan is everything on this show. Even when it lulled a bit in season two, Nolan always kept us coming back for more. He gets all the hot guys… and girls… and guys… LOL. And I’m pretty sure it’s because of his impeccable fashion sense. Peep the gallery for just a few of my favorite looks from our favorite revengy guy.

Unfortch, low ratings mean not a lot of people have seen this performance
Back in October we learned that Lady Gaga was teaming up with The Muppets for a holiday special set to air on ABC on Thanksgiving night. Among the performances that took place on the Lady Gaga & Muppets Holiday Spectacular was a duet between Gaga and Joseph Gordon-Levitt on the somewhat disturbing (in a date-rapey sort of way) holiday classic Baby It’s Cold Outside (which, despite the creepy lyrics remains a perennial favorite). Honestly, this song isn’t really my favorite (due to the creepiness of the lyrics) but I do love me some JGL so I have to share the performance with all y’all. Unfortunately for Gaga and ABC, the holiday special didn’t really do well in the ratings so it’s likely that many of you didn’t even see this performance when it aired Thursday night. Click above to watch the performance and see what you think. While I’m not crazy about the song, I do appreciate the simplicity of the performance and, well, JGL in anything is worth checking out (sometimes repeatedly).
This. Is. Brilliant.
Altho Thanksgiving was a couple of days ago, I have some fun leftovers to share with all y’all this weekend. Jimmy Fallon had guests Rashida Jones and Carrie Underwood on his show Late Night with Jimmy Fallon this week and he got them both to perform parody versions of some of our fave pop songs of the day in honor of the Thanksgiving holiday. I’ve tried to come up with a way to adequately describe the amazingness what Jimmy, Rashida and Carrie came up with but I think I shall let the video embedded above speak for itself. Check out the video to see these amazingly talented people perform renditions of songs by Daft Punk, Katy Perry, Lorde, Miley Cyrus, Icona Pop, Robin Thicke and more. Folks, it’s brilliance … pure and simple. Jimmy Fallon always does the holidays right, watch above and see what I mean.
5 Reasons You Should Def Start Tuning In
So, by now you all know that Scandal and Revenge are two of my favorite shows on television right now, and even though I don’t write recaps, The Good Wife is another one of my top specials. But I recently started watching Sleepy Hollow on FOX and was pleasantly surprised at how much I fell in lurve with the series. If you’re watching, def check out my recaps on Paste Magazine, and if you’re not watching… ummm, yeah no. You should start watching. Like, yesterday. Peep the gallery for a few reasons– including hottie McHottie Tom Mison– why I’m obsessed with this show!
Giving Thanks To The Show That's Given Us So, So Much
The third season of Scandal is in full effect, and the levels of cray the show has reached are just out of control. Folks comin’ back from the dead, family secrets unveiled, Abby‘s eyeliner situation taking off in powerful ways– it’s been a great time. We’ve learned a lot from this show in a few short seasons (like, if you want someone killed right, you have to kill them yourself), so here are just a few of the big life lessons season three has taught us. Peep the gallery for more!

"He's just a simple man. I adore him."
Over the weekend we learned that Entertainment Tonight managed to secure a sit down interview with our dear Britney Spears where she opened up about her love life, her family, her new album Britney Jean (which is streaming IN FULL right NOW) and, of course, her upcoming Las Vegas concert residency Britney: Piece of Me. Today we get to follow up on that tease now that ET has released their interview with Britney. I think the biggest thing to take away from this interview is the revelation that Britney says that she is in love with boyfriend David Lucado. I guess it’s time that we (er, well, I) accept the fact that Britney and David are really an item. More »
SPOILER ALERT, For Those Of You Who Still Don't Know...
I don’t know about you, but I’m still in mourning over the loss of one of the most beloved Family Guy characters of all time, and I haven’t even watched the show in a while. Seriously? I don’t even get how they plan to pull this off. I’m not into, not even a little bit. And apparently, I’m not alone. People are legitimately angry over this decision to kill off you know who (for those of you who read yesterday’s article), and they’re not just gonna sit around and take it. Enter Change.org, LOL. Click inside to read about the new petition to resurrect our beloved Family Guy character. And obvs, if you don’t know who I’m talking about, SPOILER ALERT, SPOILER ALERT!

SPOILER ALERT WARNING, OBVS
Wow. Completely out of nowhere and without any sign of warning, a main character on the long-running animated series Family Guy was killed off the show last night. While I don’t watch Family Guy with any regularity, I have enjoyed the show here and there over the years when I catch it in reruns or when a specially hyped new episode airs on Fox. I did not watch last night’s episode of Family Guy live as it aired but caught wind of the tragic death that took place shortly after it took place. In an attempt to not spoil the show for anyone who has yet to watch the episode last night, I’ll keep further information about this surprising death after the jump cut below. I will tell you that one of the characters in the thumbnail image to the left was tragically killed off Family Guy … for good :( More »
"Everyone wears a mask"
In December of 2012 I blogged about the upcoming debut of a new Fox TV series titled The Following, which I fell in love with after watching the first 4 episodes. As the debut season unfolded, I was gripped by the drama that took place and I came to expect the surprise twist that would inevitably come at the end of each episode. Altho there were some problems with the show (it’s rare for a new show to be perfect right off the bat), I became a big fan of the show. The season 1 finale episode SEEMED to bring the story to a conclusion but, naturally, we were given some insight as to what we might expect in season 2. The Following will return on Fox on January 19th with its season 2 premiere episode followed by the show’s second episode the following night on January 20. I can’t wait to see where the story will take us in season 2 (I’m curious to see how seemingly “dead” characters will appear in the new season). Click thru the gallery presented here to check out promo photos of the season 2 characters and then click below to see a just-released promo video for The Following. More »
