Cougar Town is going through with that name change after all...
We add insult to injuries in today's news.
It's that time of year when we honor all that mothers do for their children. Though in the case of the television personalities below, being a good mom consists of pimping out your kids or hitting them with an actual hammer. Yes, these are some really special women. So happy Mother's Day and be grateful that these women didn't give birth to you.
Get better, Wild Thing!
Is your family driving you crazy this holiday season? In a time of high stress, it's important to take a moment and reflect on that fact that you're not stuck in one of the many horrible families from the current world of scripted TV. We're not talking about pain-in-the-butt relatives like those on Modern Family or Parenthood -- at least those crazies mean well. The following clans, on the other hand, make dysfunction seem luxurious -- just imagine what it would be like to call these characters your kin.
There's been reports this week that the Glee kids had signed contracts to potentially do three feature films based on the series. While that's all well and good, we're not really sure that we even want three Glee movies. Considering that the show itself is so uneven, they really need to focus their efforts on making great TV. On the other hand, we're still hoping that the 24 movie gets made, and would love it if these ten other recent progams were extended to the big screen as well.
With news that AMC is planning to do a Watch What Happens Live-type talk show, we're thinking that more networks should be cashing in on this low-budget, highly-entertaining type of exclusive entertainment. Taking a page from Andy Cohen, who drove his Bravo behind-the-scenes series to success, here's how other networks could run their WHW-style shows.
Watching the Teen Choice Awards is a strange thing to do as a childless adult. It's an alternating mix of feeling old because I know who some of the people are because of my job but am not quite sure what their deal is (Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez are like that), and feeling immature because I can't help but get way too excited about Zefron and seeing the Pretty Little Liars and Vampire Diaries casts in sparkly outfits with hairdos and whatnot. And when neither of those things are happening I'm just being made uncomfortable by grown-ups trying to play down to kids, which is so awkward, and I don't even think kids like it -- I know I didn't like it when I was a kid. And then there's Katy Perry, who's just the most disgusting thing in the world, mugging for the camera at every turn in little high-school fantasy outfits. In short, it was a nightmare. Here are the noteworthy happenings from two of the weirdest hours of my life.
It's an Alloy show on ABC Family that even The CW passed on, so naturally it was assumed that Pretty Little Liars would be one of summer's biggest pieces of disposable crap. Then a strange thing happened -- when the pilot finally aired, it was obvious to everyone that this was not your average ABC Family show. Pretty Little Liars is almost edgy, as outdated a term as that is, and it's far more enjoyable in an unironic way than I ever thought it would be. In fact, aside from The OCD Project, it might just be the most compelling summer show on right now. I've attempted to examine why below.
Please be dead, Heroes. Please be dead, Heroes. Please, please, please be dead.
