To me, Lifetime is a channel full of made-for-TV movies, Dance Moms and Project Runway. There's always an abundance of over the top drama, usually the kind that melts your brain to the consistency of a grilled cheese sandwich. So what could be worse than some of the things Lifetime already thrusts upon its viewers? A reality series entitled Born in the Wild that promises to deliver (couldn’t resist that pun) a truly innovative take ... Read More

The Maya Rudolph Show is like being kicked in the face with a sparkly tap shoe, and I want more.Maya Rudolph, long-time former SNL cast member and star of the hit movie Bridesmaids, said in an interview with Seth Meyers, "Young folks have probably never experienced the joys of corny but wonderful but grand, feather boas and sparkles and people singing songs and telling corny jokes but guests dropping in and stopping by…" True, I don't think I have ...

Our favorite super-heroines are about inner strength, teaching us to do what’s right even when it’s hard. And that can get lost when we lose complex characters to women who are portrayed as hyper-sexualized objects, devoid of complex character development. Women have long been asking for more female superheroes with more dialogue and less unrealistically revealing outfits, but what do young girls think?
The artist ... Read More

November 23, 2013 will be a day forever fixed in time and space for Doctor Who fans--or Whovians, as they affectionately call themselves. Saturday the 23rd marked the 50th anniversary of the dearly beloved and longest running sci-fi show of all time.
Such a special occasion was this that at precisely 2:50 P.M. (EST), the show was simulcast in theaters across 80 countries. For those who love the time lord and his Tardis (the blue police box he travels in), ... 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

Until today, the lack of LGBT representation among Disney characters had never occurred to me, simply because it seemed so incredibly implausible that it wasn't even worth the frustration. The pinnacle of "wholesome family values" bringing a lil' diversity into the mix? Psssh! But as it turns out, I've never been so happy to be proven wrong.
This past Sunday, the Disney-ABC show "Once Upon a Time" featured a sniffle-inducing scene in which Mulan (nearly!) reveals ... Read More
Queen Latifah’s got a new talk show coming to CBS this Fall!
The Queen’s not new to the talk show game: back in 1999-2001, she had a talk show entitled The Queen Latifah Show. Her new show will have the same title, but the viewership is expected to be even higher than her previous television venture.
On Miss U.N.I.T.Y’s new show, she’ll feature human-interest pieces, along with comedic and musical performances (some by the Queen ... Read More

If you’re in the midst of doing any resume-building, here’s a tip: don’t look up Raven-Symoné. Her career is, simply put, mind-boggling. It’s just not fair. First of all, she got her headstart as an infant, picking up some modeling between napping, pooping her diaper, and eating mush. By the wee age of four, she was on The Cosby Show. At age eight? She’d already dropped an album.
When, at 16, she auditioned for a ... Read More

It’s back. Lena Dunham’s much-discussed, often-criticized, critically adored, game-changing TV series Girls will finally return to HBO this Sunday, 1/13. It’s no secret that BUST wants to make one hundred babies with Lena, but some staffers fretted that the show’s second season might not live up to the ever-growing hype surrounding it. To say we were eagerly anticipating Girls’ return is an understatement. So when the season-two ... Read More
