Get ready for it; we’re about to see a bunch of white males scrambling for the Late Show spot now that David Letterman has announced his retirement. The current top contenders include Jon Stewart, Jay Leno, Craig Ferguson, and Conan O’Brien. *yawn*
Men have traditionally hosted late night television because of the outdated gendered blocking of Television viewing times. Daytime television has no shortage of female hosts because daytime TV's assumed ... Read More

WE ARE JUDGING YOU FOR JUDGING EVERYONE
UK Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman recently told the Telegraph that “people don’t want to buy a magazine like Vogue to see what they see when they look in the mirror. They can do that for free,” and I am livid. Although Shulman has rallied against the ridiculous sizes of sample sizes in the past, her latest statement contradicts the very essence of embracing all bodies. It also brings up how gross the ...

Herstory (n): a fraught subject and a sad, compelling legacy — bound up as it is in, you know, a culture of violence and disenfranchisement. But in honor of Women's History Month, let's take a flip-book look across countries, decades and ideas at some ladies (those famous, recognized, and not-so-much) who helped shape the way we think, talk, move, dress, and exist. Obviously, this list is abridged: ten billion other photos wouldn't ... Read More
Regina George is a pop culture icon; unrelentingly representative of a terrifying girl-on-girl meanness, she is the brilliant brainchild of writer Tina Fey, actress Rachel McAdams, and directer Mark Waters. Edging out Heathers’ Heather Chandler as the most eerily alluring young female villain, George terrified and mesmerized audiences and proved that words can be deadlier even than the strongest drain cleaner. As the ten-year anniversary of Mean Girls ... Read More

Margaret Cho has been brought on to co-star in Tina Fey's upcoming sitcom about a women's college going co-ed.Cho, the hilarious and brilliant comedian, will play Laura Thibault, the college president responsible for the new inclusivity. Apparently, Thibault is a "divisive figure on campus" (a.k.a probably a badass) struggling with her decision to bring on the men, as she is easily frustrated with their boyish ridiculousness.
I smell a new ... Read More
My ultimate favourite funny female duo, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, are all set to host the Golden Globes for their second year in a row this Sunday (January 12). The two chatted with The Hollywood Reporter recently about the upcoming gig and, of course, in their own witty style, they keep it kinda snarky and super hilarious answering questions about the gender lines in comedy, ageism in Hollywood and the criticism towards SNL for its lack of African American ...

It seems all this talk of movies with lead female characters making more money has finally caught on to the head media honchos in Hollywood, and I think it's about time.
IndieWire created a list of some of the most anticipated movies of 2014 and I was happily surprised to find so many female driven plots as well as strong female influence behind the scenes.
You can expect everything from a fierce Angelina Jolie in "Maleficent," the long awaited Veronica Mars movie ... Read More

If Tina Fey’s new NBC show, and Kristen Schaal’s upcoming ABC series weren’t enough exciting lady-centric television news for you, fear not. Deadline has just reported that Saturday Night Live alumna Maya Rudolph is developing a variety show pilot with NBC!
Rudolph’s last television endeavor, NBC’s Up All Night, on which she co-starred with Christina Applegate and Will Arnett, was cancelled in February. Rudolph then indicated that ... Read More
When celebrities discuss their children, their voice often takes on an otherworldly, dazed quality: “Oh yes, he’s the light of my life. Motherhood... is transformative.” And while that’s the beautiful and honest experience of many mothers, we may also long to hear stars discuss the more terrifying, humbling aspects of parenting.
Well, Tina Fey has us covered. In a hilarious interview with David Letterman, the comedian ... Read More

YOU GUYS. THE BEST THING HAS HAPPENED. As announced yesterday, NBC has ordered thirteen episodes of a new sitcom from TV/comedy/everything goddess Tina Fey.
Ellie Kemper from Bridesmaids and The Office is set to star as a woman who moves to New York following her escape from a doomsday cult, sooooooo this is probably going to be the greatest thing to grace the small screen in a while (or just...ever). The show, currently untitled, will debut next fall. And, though ... Read More
