Cookieness Evereat vs. The Hungry Games
Folks, we’ve seen a few pretty good spoofs from Sesame Street this year but the Children’s Television Workshop may have just outdone themselves with their latest parody. Titled The Hungry Games: Catching Fur, the Sesame Street gang reinterprets one of the year’s biggest movies in a way that is cuter than your wildest imagination. Cookie Monster stars in this parody as Cookiness Evereat where he competes in The Hungry Games alongside Finnicky, Tick Tock Lady, and Pita (who is a piece of Pita bread — lol) for cookie supremacy. I mean, it’s damn brilliant. Click the embed above to watch and fall in love.
Dang, does this mean I have to start watching Sesame Street on the regular again?
"Audience goes f*cking ape shit"
HBO aired the series finale of Eastbound & Down last night which featured, in the final minutes of the show, cameo appearances by Lindsay Lohan and Alexander Skarsgård. Altho the episode aired last night, I suppose the video above may be extremely spoilery for fans of the show who have yet to watch the episode. That said, the cameo scenes with Lindsay and Alexander take place in the future with the actors portraying future, adult versions of Kenny Powers‘s children. I haven’t been keeping up with Eastbound (I’m sorry to say) but I really love every single second of this finale scene. Even if you’ve never watched an episode of the show, I think you will find this video extremely entertaining. And, hey, look at that … Lindsay Lohan is getting work again. This TV appearance is her first paid gig since she got out of rehab this past summer (not counting her guest appearance on Chelsea Lately). Good for her. So, Eastbound fans, what do YOU think of the show’s series finale ep? How about them cameos, eh?
Nothing is set in stone but ...
Back in September, before the current season of The Walking Dead premiered on AMC in October, we learned that plans are in the works for a spin-off series of the show (referred to as a “companion series”). Today we learn that there is a strong possibility that this Walking Dead spin-off might turn out to be a prequel series to the current show. As you can read below, nothing has been decided officially but there are indications that the action in this upcoming spin-off series (which, I might add, is not at ALL based on anything from The Walking Dead comics) might take place shortly after the zombie apocalypse takes place.

A Lot Of People Are Mad About The [SPOILER ALERT] Rape Scene
I want y’all to know that I actually had the day off today, but I’m logging in because we HAVE to, HAVE TO talk about what happened last night on Scandal. Initially I was planning my traditional recap, but I’ve been seeing a lot of comments online about one particular scene in last night’s episode. If you haven’t seen it, my apologies for spoiling it a bit, but TRUST ME, so much was going on in that one scene, I definitely haven’t spoiled the entire episode for you. Not even a little bit. If you did catch Everything’s Coming Up Mellie, do click inside for more.

"You have to find someone who understands you"
Earlier this week we got to check out a tiny sneak peek of the new HBO series Looking which has been referred to as the gay version of Sex and the City (or HBO‘s other series Girls). Today we get to watch the first full trailer for Looking in the embed above. Looking stars Broadway/TV star Jonathan Groff alongside a cast of other men whose characters search for love in the city of San Francisco, CA. As I understand it, the aim is to try and present the realities of gay love on the series. Check out the trailer above to get your first really good feel for the show and then mark your calendars … Looking premieres on HBO on January 19th.

You'll never guess WHO Stevie Nicks will play on the show
Earlier this week we learned that singer Stevie Nicks will make an appearance on an upcoming episode of American Horror Story: Coven in a move that makes absolute sense considering how much the show has been featuring her music and likeness this season (if you are watching this season, you know exactly who/what I’m referring to). Today we get to hear from AHS creator/writer Ryan Murphy and he dishes specific details about Stevie‘s appearance on the show. Entertainment Weekly got a hold of Murphy and asked him point blank — Who will Stevie be playing on the show? When will she appear on the show? Click below to find out the answers to both questions.

"I was disappointed"
Mariah Carey paid a visit to NYC radio station Hot 97 to chat with fans on The Angie Martinez Show and she went OFF about her experience as judge on American Idol last season. I mean, you’re gonna hafta watch the video embedded above to hear what Mimi has to say about her time as an Idol judge but, yeah, it’s very clear that she was disappointed with the whole experience. She says it was like going to Hell to work with Satan (paraphrase). Do you think she was throwing a dig at fellow judge Nicki Minaj (who she does NOT mention at all by name)? HMMM. The video above is AI specific and lasts only 90 seconds. If you want to see the full 16 minute Hot 97 interview with Mariah Carey, you can watch it below. More »
