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.

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
