TWoP Has a New Companion to Watch and Snark With

In our neverending quest to take our obsession with television to new levels, we're happy to report that we're going to be working closely with zeebox, a free app that lets TV viewers discover, connect, share and interact with their favorite shows and with other fans while they watch. It's available for laptops, iPhones, iPads and Android smartphones (yet another reason to upgrade that flip phone, The Killing's Detective Linden).

TWoP Makes Spreading the Snark Easier Than Ever

Television Without Pity readers have never been shy about expressing their thoughts about the best and worst of television, movies, and pop culture -- in fact, they've set the online standard for passionate, in-depth and highly focused viewer reactions and analysis. So now TWoP has a new way to let your opinions be heard -- both on the site and beyond. Here's how you can now get the most out of the TWoP social experience:

One Life to Live Ends on a High Note: With a MWoP Shout-Out

Here's one more reason to miss ABC's One Life to Live, which airs its last episode today after a nearly 44-year run: they pay attention to TWoP's reviews! On yesterday's penultimate installment, the OLTL writers gave a shout-out to a certain website known as "Movies Without Sympathy," which lambasted David Vickers Buchanan's (played by Tuc Watkins) latest acting effort, entitled The Boy with the Chipmunk Tattoo.

Critics' Choice Television Awards: TV's Latest Winners

Yesterday there was a luncheon honoring the best in television, as chosen by the Broadcast Television Journalists Association. And while the full event, featuring the speeches and the hosting talents of Cat Deeley, will begin airing on REELZ starting tomorrow night (June 22), we've got all the winners here right now. These first annual awards picked some of the predictable stuff (like Mad Men) but also recognized shows and actors that is usually off the Emmy radar, and two of your loyal TWoP editors got to be part of the nominating and voting process (though admittedly, a few of our favorites still didn't win).

Happy Holidays From TWoP: Free Tubey Screensavers

In the spirit of the season, TWoP is pleased to offer its readers not one, not two, but three free screensavers to download, all featuring our devilish little mascot himself.

One screensaver covers your monitor in an infinite number of little black, white and yellow Tubeys. Think of it as our version of The Matrix, or of the snow that used to appear on dead TV channels.

Another screensaver features Tubey in animated action, making his cute little way across your monitor in surprising fashion.

Our final screensaver features Tubey hidden in the show-specific artwork that appear at the top of our recaps. Try to spot him before the images change!

Our Vampire Diaries: TWoP at the Paley Center

Our Vampire Diaries: TWoP at the Paley Center If you can't get enough of vampires (and really, who can?), you won't want to miss the Paley Center for Media's discussion of all things fangtastic this Saturday in New York. The panel will focus on the contributions of Buffy, Angel, True Blood, The Vampire Diaries and Dark Shadows to the television landscape -- and yes, someone will be there defending Twilight even though it's not a TV show. TWoP's senior editor, Angel Cohn, will be on stage to talk about her undying love for all things True Blood, so if you're feeling bloodthirsty, get your tickets now. Just leave the crosses and stakes at home.
OMMA Awards Battle Royale: TWoP vs. South Park vs. Lost As Smokin Joe Frazier said when he presented the First Annual Montgomery Burns Awards for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Excellence, "Webster's Dictionary defines excellence as 'the state or condition of being excellent.'" In light of that, we're honored that TWoP has been chosen as one of only three finalists for the OMMA Award for Website Excellence, Entertainment Category, presented by MediaPost. Our competition: South Park Studios.com and Ajira Airways.com (a Lost viral marketing site). And while our ultimate fate is in the hands of MediaPost's judges, readers will determine the Member's Choice Award winners in each category. So, if you're feeling kind to Tubey, cast your vote for TWoP here. (You'll need to register with MediaPost, but it's free and well worth the price to teach those South Park and Lost geniuses a thing or two.)
