The show may be called New Girl, but for us, it's all about the Schmidt.
Get ready for a glitzy fall filled with plenty of roadkill and sass.
The network upfronts are upon us.
The CW usually has the most energetic upfront of them all each May, and while I was a bit concerned about this year's new location (Jazz at Lincoln Center), the presentation began with the band LMFAO singing "Party Rock Anthem" while members of America's Best Dance Crew alums Quest Crew (including Hok!) did their B-Boy thing on stage. Once they shuffled off, outgoing CW president Dawn Ostroff introduced the very attractive casts of all of the network's shows, forcing them to engage in awkward banter on stage - a tried-and-true CW upfront tradition (I certainly hope that her successor Mark Pedowitz continues it next time). But the Good Sport of the Week Award goes to sales exec Rob Tuck, who came out wearing both a gold lamé jacket and the cardboard robot head from LMFAO's performance. Finally, after some hype about CWingo (a new Facebook bingo game) and the obligatory joke about Ian Somerhalder's bite being worse than his bark, we finally saw clips from the new line-up.
While most of us (of legal drinking age) will gravitate towards our local Irish pubs this weekend to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, we'd really prefer to be imbibing cocktails at some of our favorite television watering holes. While years ago, we may have wanted to go to the Boston bar where everybody knows your name, or would've liked to take in some sweet drinks while cruising with Isaac, there are plenty of newer fictional establishments that are calling out to us these days. Man, there are a lot of lushes on TV.
Coherent storylines on Glee may be a thing of the past, but who cares? Ryan Murphy is giving us mini-Puck!
In last night's episode, "In Havoc and In Heat," Zoe (who we're supposed to buy as a promising cardiothoracic surgeon from New York, and not an insufferable girly-girl) decides that she's going to let loose and have a one-night stand with Wade -- a man with whom she had a brief tongue-tangle while she was covered in mud, drunk and in the front seat of his car... on the day she met him. But instead of just inviting Wade over for a drink to beat the heat, she has to be all freaking weird about it and turn into one of those rom-com characters who tries on a million outfits in front of a mirror. Who is she supposed to be, Katherine Heigl or Kate Hudson? Will she jump on her bed in her underwear next week? There were a lot of preposterous moments in the episode (Zoe later falling off the bar stool was just one of them) that made us wince, but this particular scene summed up precisely everything that is wrong with her character. Now keep in mind, this is a woman who wears short shorts on a regular basis and sports slinky designer dresses and five-inch heels to work. And she's doing this for a guy who has made it pretty clear that he'd like to bang her whenever she wants. Here's how the entire sequence broke down:
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.
The contestants have finally been announced for RuPaul's All Stars Drag Race, and there's about a billion reasons why this competition excites us way more than any of those Idol-lookalikes. Most of those reasons have to do with the excess of glitter.
So much for no stunt casting this season on Glee.
