Just in case Zooey Deschanel's presence on your TV screen on Fox's fall hit New Girl, iPhone Siri commercial, or SNL as a host was not enough adorkability for you, her face now may be on a bus in a city near you.
Today the New Girl Facebook page announced the "True American" bus tour, which will kick off labor day weekend in Boston and move on to New York. The tour's name clearly comes from the show's infamous patriotic drinking game, to which the rules are still ... Read More

The cast of Girls seems to be everywhere these days in print, but now you can take them everywhere with you in prints. Different prints, actually, thanks to Kevin Hilton at Vulture.
The brilliance of this kind of Girls print-job is that it is in doll form. Each of the four cast members now has their own paper doll, complete with different outfits and accessories. If you've been watching the season, you'll be pleased to see that the intricacies of each character's ... Read More
Anderson Cooper did not light any children's dolls on fire, but he did kick a Barbie off his show. A real life Barbie.
On Tuesday, Sarah Burge, dubbed the "real life Barbie" because of her extensive plastic surgeries, chatted with Cooper on his show. Cooper, known to most to be a pretty nice guy, and even known to break down from time to time in a fit of adorably contagious giggles, became visibly angry when the two began to discuss Burge's daughters.

We recently spread the word that HBO's Girls was changing up its season 2 cast by adding comedian/rapper/actor/pretty much everything ever Donald Glover, and now we have news that they're changing up the cast even more. This time, it's with hipsters.
Not exactly the kind of diversity the critics were talking about, but still a change of pace. It's pretty expected for the show when you consider its location (New York) and cast (post-grads and college kids). ... Read More
Have you guys seen HBO's new show Girls? If not, you should definitely check it out. It's honest, hilarious, and all about us- that is, if you're a twenty something female or a slightly misguided post-grad. It's the TV show brainchild of Judd Apatow and Lena Dunham, known best for her film Tiny Furniture. But Girls has been criticized for not representing all of us, an apt critique of a show with a so far only white cast.
Perhaps Dunham is trying to remedy ... Read More
BUSTies, Mother's Day is upon us, and it's time to honor all of the mamas in our lives--both real and fictional. Here, for your reading pleasure, are five of our favorite TV moms. Enjoy!
Clair Huxtable, The Cosby Show
In my humble opinion, Clair Huxtable is the perfect TV mom. Her formidable lawyer-ing skills were often put to work dealing with the crazy kids, and her career in no way kept her from being a caring and firm mother. She, like any other mom, ... Read More

For many of you, summer means lazy days at the park, beach, or rooftop. (Or, as Dr. Spaceman once prescribed for Liz, "a little R&R. Rum and Ritalin.") For me, it means another three months of summer reruns. It also means that the major TV networks are finalizing and announcing fall lineups and dragging me down a hole of anxiety, relief, and disappointment. (It’s possible I’m far too emotionally invested in TV.)
We told you yesterday about Mindy ... Read More

Beloved TV host Ellen (no last name necessary, obvs) loves to make her audience dance, viewers laugh, and guests piss their pants when she scares the hell out of them. Daytime TV fans know that she loves to scare her celebrity guests, either on stage during interviews or in the green room. The results are freaking hilarious, since the celebs involuntarily drop their masks of professionalism in favor of screaming like 5-year-olds. This is just another reason why I ... Read More
The end is nigh, my friends. After Monday's episode of the sequined acid carnival that is RuPaul’s Drag Race, we are down to the final three, a final three that I find completely unacceptable. Allow me to copy and paste my notes on last night’s elimination for you here: "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO." A lot of O's, I know, but it was an involuntary reflex that could not be suppressed. But before that happened, this episode was a great one, ... Read More
Early into last night’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race, something crossed my mind that I almost dare not speak aloud. During the mini challenge, as the queens were throwing shade at one another and nearly all of them were terrible at it, this thought started forming. Today I will get out my library card (because reading is fundamental), and throw some of my own shade: maybe none of these queens are actually worthy of the title of America’s Next ... Read More
