The Hollywood Reporter wrote yesterday that the 30 Rock creator and comedic HBIC has gotten back together with 30 Rock teamsters Matt Hubbard and Robert Carlock for a new comedy that has put networks in a bidding frenzy. Sounds like music to your ears? Keep reading: The as yet untitled comedy would take place at a women’s college that has just recently started accepting men. Prediction: hilarity ensues. As a student at a small liberal arts college at which ... Read More
Trigger Warning: This post mentions sexual abuse within the prison system. Spoiler Alert! If you're not caught up with the whole season, avert your eyes! It’s safe to say that Netflix's Orange is The New Black has taken over my life. It’s okay; the first step is always admitting you have a problem, and I’m an OITNB addict. I’m at the point of wanting to read the real Piper Chapman’s (who’s actually Piper Kerman IRL) actual ... Read More
This HYSTERICAL CollegeHumor video addresses that “dumb double standard” in the TV industry that’s got so many ladies’ feathers ruffled. No, not the pay grade one … or the leading actress/actor ratio one… or the one where “30 Rock” isn’t on the air anymore. (Not quite a double standard but an issue I, as a woman, have.)  These female comedians have “a boner to pick” with HBO … for not giving us the D. It’s true! For every time we ... Read More
Aubrey Plaza is easily the greatest thing since sliced bread. (We at BUST love her so much we put her on the cover of our October/November 2012 issue!) But before she was breaking hearts and taking names in Parks and Rec, she and a group of co-conspirators made this trailer for Teen Hag, a salty spin on the movie Teen Wolf, "coming to a cave nowhere near you … 6/6/6." Plaza basically plays an awkward teenage girl (what else is new) who comes into her own ... Read More
  Okay, so Drunk History on Comedy Central is probably my new favorite show. I can’t watch even one segment without laughing to tears. It began as a Funny or Die series, which was created by Jeremy Konner and Derek Waters. What makes Drunk History so funny is the fact that they enlist actors to re-tell historical events, while being incredibly intoxicated. This show is majorly awesome!  Part of the hilarity is that the actors aren’t exactly accurate ... Read More
If you're desperately clinging to your childhood like me, then try not to freak out. Pop girl group Momoiro Clover Z just confirmed at a Sailor Moon 20th anniversary event that the long overdue brand new Sailor Moon series is supposed to debut this winter. Oh. My. Grosh. First of all, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, SAILOR MOON! You could practically be twinsies with us! Looking forward to seeing these ladies again. Well, maybe not Chibi Moon so much. Second of ... Read More
        If you’ve been binge watching the new Netflix series, Orange is The New Black (if you aren’t you totally should), you’re probably familiar with the show’s super villain, George “Pornstache” Mendez. While he’s known as the cruelest, and most sexually devious corrections officer, Pablo Schreiber actually isn’t like his character. For one thing, his character’s mustache goes a long ... Read More
Traditionally, it’s been scripted for you: first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in the baby carriage… Yadda, yadda, yadda. Sounds easy enough. Until you decide that the script isn’t for you. In this new HBO documentary, First Comes Love, filmmaker Nina Davenport throws the script out and documents how it goes doing things her way. She's unmarried, over 40 and she wants to have a baby.  The plan is, there is no plan.This ... Read More
This is LITERALLY the saddest news I’ve heard all week. As a huge Parks and Recreation fan, I’m bummed to hear that both Rashida Jones (Ann Perkins) and Rob Lowe (Chris Traeger) are leaving after 13 episodes into the next season. Jones, who has starred in the show since the pilot, spent the end of the last season trying to get pregnant with Lowe's character. Presumably, their on-again/off-again relationship and her potential pregnancy will be tied into ... Read More
In anticipation of the upcoming red carpet gala, the Girls mastermind has had a few things to say about the HBO show's nominations. Just now finishing filming the third season of her hit show, (not that anybody's counting the days or anything...) Dunham revealed that she's most excited for co-star's Adam Driver's comedy nomination. Although she's received three noms herself, his gave her a "shriek-y, joyful, amazed sensation." Dunham stated, "It means so much to ... Read More
