Dear Kyle - Please say yes! - Love, TWoP
Before Charlie Sheen introduced the concept to us via a series of confusing and ill-advised interviews, we had no way to rate the quality of "winning." But now we know that Sheen apparently is "winning," thanks to his tiger blood (i.e. ferocity), Adonis DNA (i.e. attractiveness), ability to defeat earthworms with words (i.e. articulateness), ability to convert tin cans into gold (i.e. improve shows/films by his mere presence) and "bitchin' life" (i.e. substance abuse, promiscuity, violence or other illegal activity, none of which we condone or endorse). Rating each category on a scale of 1 to 10, we thought we'd determine the "winning" level of some of the biggest, most outrageous celebrities out there. If you, too, can come close to Sheen's winningness (he scores 10s across the board), he may want to party with you. Or follow you on Twitter.
Bill Clinton turned down guest starring on 30 Rock. Hasn't he done enough to America?
As a huge fan of Joshua Malina (and his Twitter, which is seriously the best) and Michael Ian Black, I was delighted to discover their collaborative web series Backwash, which launched last week. The show is a collection of seven-minute shorts and there are only 13 of them in the can, but it really is a nice little comedy diversion to break up the cat videos and local news mishaps you usually spend your day watching. Plus, it's star-studded!
Happy Thursday, everybody! Gosh, remember when Thursday was Must See TV night on NBC? Yeah... it was a while ago. But guess what, nostalgia-cravers? George Clooney's (supposedly) back on ER tonight, so from the hours of 10-11PM you can pretend it's 1997 again and the world had never heard of such things as Survivor or American Idol or Celebrity Circus! Man, what did anyone watch before the year 2000?
I've been complaining for several seasons now that ER needs to stop. For a while it got all kinds of crazy and downbeat, with too much focus on Abby and Kovac and the depressing blow after blow to their relationship. Then they killed off, or wrote off, pretty much every character I was remotely interested in. However, this season has been pretty great overall, and I'm not even really mad at all that they added in a couple extra episodes to the end. In fact, I think the show is pretty much back in top form (since I've been watching it from the get-go) and this season has been more consistently entertaining than Grey's Anatomy or House (don't even get me started on Private Practice) have been this year -- shocking words that I never would have imagined myself typing last summer when I was dreading this final send-off. Here's why I'm on board:
