Speidi on HIMYM? It’s the Debil’s Work!

Speidi on <i>HIMYM</i>? It’s the Debil’s Work! Now that Sad Grampa and his sidekick ol' HMILF (that's Hockey Mom I'd Like To .... oh you know) are safely out of the picture and Obama's beginning his quest to right the wrongs of the past administration, I feel it's appropriate to train our focus on an insidious enemy that's set down deep roots in this fair nation of ours. You all know what I'm talking about right?

Baby on Board for HIMYM‘s Lily?

Baby on Board for <I>HIMYM</I>‘s Lily?

We're not usually big on the whole who's having a baby, who's not having a baby sort of gossip over here in Telefile land, but when it comes to Alyson Hannigan, it's a whole 'nother story. Mostly because we, OK, I, am worried about what will happen if a baby gets written into How I Met Your Mother... and because a baby that is the product of two Buffy alumni (Hannigan is married to Alexis Denisof, for those non-Buffy obsessed people in the world out there) is just the most awesome thing ever. Do you think it will come out with a little stake in its hand? Will it be a grow up to be a rogue demon hunter like daddy or a lesbian witch like its mommy?

TWoP 10 Reasons We're Glad Summer Is Over

TWoP 10 Reasons We're Glad Summer Is Over There are a lot of great things about summer. It's not cold outside anymore, your seasonal depression clears up all on its own, and you can give your Tivo a break because none of the important shows are on for a while! OK, OK, there are a few exceptions, but for every Mad Men there are about a hundred I Love Moneys. Here are the reasons we're most excited for life to get back to normal next month, TV-wise.

Steven Keaton Soaps Up

Steven Keaton Soaps Up Things have been hard for Michael Gross (aka Steven Keaton) since the salad days of Family Ties. According to his IMDB page, he hasn't been hurting for work, but nothing he's done, with the possible exception of a turn as a bad guy in a 2000 episode of Law & Order has been all that high-profile. Yes, Law & Order is high-profile, you guys! Shut up.

Idol Boss Bails to Put on Dancing Shoes

<I>Idol</I> Boss Bails to Put on Dancing Shoes

All summer long I've been thinking that So You Think You Can Dance is better than American Idol, and clearly I'm not the only one. Idol executive producer Nigel Lythgoe is ditching his post behind-the-scenes on Idol in order to focus more on his gig exec. producing and judging the summer-long dance competition. One might think the man is crazy for leaving his presumably well-paying job on the insanely highly rated singing show, but maybe he'd just had enough of Seacrest. Plus, this is the guy who willingly sits next to scream queen Mary Murphy on a regular basis so he's got to be more than a little nuts.

Someone Finally Heard My Prayers!

Someone Finally Heard My Prayers!

Apparently the god of all cheesy teen shows of yore has seen fit to grant my fondest wish and put the Nickelodeon shows Clarissa Explains It All (which I just gleefully babbled about the other day) and Hey Dude on iTunes! There will be a bunch of other shows, like The Amanda Show, Rugrats (or as my 2-year-old likes to call it "The Babies"), Rocko's Modern Life (he's a wallaby) and Doug, available for download as part of Nick Rewind. I know what I'm buying myself for my birthday this year.

What Would Jesus Sue?

by Odie Henderson July 16, 2008 1:44 pm
What Would Jesus Sue? Let us pray. Dear Lord, please forgive me for laughing about this Passion of the Christ screenplay lawsuit. I know it is in sinfully bad taste for me to conjure up images of Mel Gibson as defendant and New Testament writer John as plantiff on Judge David Young, but I cannot help myself. The flesh is weak, but my will power over parody is far weaker.

TWoP 10: Dumbest Primetime Gameshows Ever

TWoP 10: Dumbest Primetime Gameshows Ever

With the recent addition of Wipeout to the world of stupid shows where people make themselves look like idiots in order to earn some cash money, we've decided to take a look back at some of the really ridiculous shows that involve rewarding those with little or no talent with cash. While Wipeout just barely missed making the cut, there are some others that are horrifyingly bad and are contributing to the downfall of quality television just as much as an average episode of The Bachelorette. That's not to say that some of these aren't entertaining to watch, but that doesn't really make them intelligent TV.

Daddy Dearest: Our Tribute to TV Fathers

Daddy Dearest: Our Tribute to TV Fathers

When it comes to TV, there are way more fabulous and high-profile roles for moms and the poor dads get the short shrift. However, we spent minutes weeks hunting through Wikipedia and our collective minds the annals of television for the best and worst TV dads that we could remember. Well, at least these are the ones that left an indelible mark on us, and not with wire hangers or anything (though we may not put that past some of the dastardly daddies on our naughty list). So in honor of Father's Day, here's our slapped together long-awaited list in alphabetical order (because we just couldn't decide if Jack Bristow or Keith Mars would be the No. 1 perfect patriarch).

Holdin’ Out for a Heroes? No, Thanks.

Holdin’ Out for a <I>Heroes</I>? No, Thanks.

So you were thinking that you were going to have to wait until September 22 to see the next season of Heroes and wash the taste of Season 2 out of your mouth? Well, NBC is rolling out some new Heroes shit this summer. That's right, it's a karate chop.
