Last week, Stephen Colbert wrote a sincere and hilarious essay for Glamour Magazine in which he pledged that his new CBS late night show will be for women. With all the current changes happening in late night, many of us ladies have repeatedly brought up the point that women are clearly missing from the late night game. Even with people all over voicing our strong objection to this ridiculous gap in representation, late night shows continue to be dominated by male hosts. That’s why it was at least somewhat refreshing to hear one of the men of late night acknowledge this problem. Read More
Supergirl. It is a name that carries a long history, but it is largely unknown outside of comic book circles. To think that Kara Zor-El (the OG Supergirl) is just a Superman female counterpart ignores the more than fifty-plus-years that the character has been a part of the DC Comics world. While there is no way to fully delve into the long history of the Girl of Steel, with the upcoming show on CBS, she becomes one of the few female heroines to be leading a show on her own. So, we wanted to at least give you a taste of Kara Zor-El, the Girl from Krypton. Read More
It's that time of year again. No, not when your new shows are coming back for the second half of their season—it's pilot season!

I was lucky enough to see the pilot of CBS’s new show, Elementary, and I’m very happy to report it’s worth watching. Elementary is a modern-day adaption of the tale of Sherlock Holmes, starring Johnny Lee Miller (Trainspotting) and Lucy Liu (Charlie’s Angels, Kill Bill Volumes 1&2, every action movie ever).

For many of you, summer means lazy days at the park, beach, or rooftop. (Or, as Dr. Spaceman once prescribed for Liz, "a little R&R. Rum and Ritalin.") For me, it means another three months of summer reruns. It also means that the major TV networks are finalizing and announcing fall lineups and dragging me down a hole of anxiety, relief, and disappointment. (It’s possible I’m far too emotionally invested in TV. Read More

Light Her (Labia) Menorah?

BY debbie in TV

I'm sure it was created with the best intentions.   I'm willing to give CBS the benefit of the doubt on that. But honestly, their new public service announcements suggesting that husbands give their wives the gift of a pap smear this holiday season are really.....ridiculous. Read More
