Although “Thank You for Being a Friend” is pretty much perfect for the vibes of NBC’s beloved Golden Girls, the song was not actually written specifically for the show. The original song was written by Andrew Gold in 1978. The voice we hear during the intro is Cynthia Fee, who re-recorded the song for the show, which premiered in September of 1985. Listening to the original is kind of mind-blowing, so let’s start this weirdfest by reminding ourselves of the less-than-a-minute-long intro... Read More
Can you believe that tomorrow is the 30 Rock finale? We're trying not to freak out, as we feel Liz Lemon and the gang still have so much more to teach us, but would we ever be ready for their departure? Fortunately, we're not alone in our pain, and the internet is making our mourning a lot easier. Vulture provided us superfans with a virtual Jack Donaghy to give us a quick retort whenever we need it, because if there's anyone who can get out a good last word, it's Donaghy. Read More
Watching The Daily Show has become a nonnegotiable part of my morning ritual. I roll out of bed, get the coffee brewing, appease my cats with some Fancy Feast, and turn to Jon Stewart for my daily reality check. This morning was no exception.  As I was watching, happily chowing down on some oatmeal, my gag reflex was suddenly tripped as a white-haired old gentlemen appeared on the screen beside Samantha Bee.

Tavi Charms Colbert!

BY Intern Tessa in TV

Tavi Gevinson, 16-year-old fashion blogger, business owner, author, feminist, and BUST cover girl, was interviewed by Stephen Colbert on his show last Thursday. She was promoting her book Rookie Yearbook One, which commemorates the one-year anniversary of her online magazine Rookie. The magazine is a feminist website for teens that covers a variety of serious issues, and also includes fun fashion tips and the like. Tavi is the youngest guest that Colbert has ever had on his show. Read More
Good day, Shantay! It's time for another season of RuPaul's Drag Race, America's favorite parade of glitter-drenched pageantry, wigs, and cat fights. Last night, 14 new contestants gathered in RuPaul's lair to show off their C.U.N.T.—charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent. As usual, it was hard to focus on anything other than RuPaul's insanely amazing clothing (a flawless baby blue suit with white satin trim and matching shoes), but I'll give it a shot. Read More
If we're to believe commercials, diverse groups of lady friends love nothing more than sitting around in yoga pants, having in-depth discussions about their two fave topics: birth control and yogurt. If you've noticed this trend, or even if you're blissfully unaware, this fake yogurt commercial from Yahoo! is a must-watch, not just because it is a damn hilarious parody of marketing ploys directed at women, then because you need (NEED) to see Weird Al’s face at the end of the vid. Pure comedy gold, I tell you. Read More
In this video, Tina Fey gives us a tour of Liz Lemon’s office. I know what you’re thinking. “I want to go to there.” And so do we! (Duh.) There are tons of great knick-knacks and random wonderful Liz-esque things, but most importantly, she talks about the framed copy of BUST on her wall! We first noticed that she had our October/November 2006 issue starring beloved Amy Poehler on the front cover on display a few years back. Now she’s here to talk about it, along with beloved memories from Liz’s office. Read More
Still coping with Liz & Dick PTSD (symptoms include nausea, The Parent Trap nostalgia, and occasionally screaming, “I’m bored!” for no apparent reason)?  Luckily, Lifetime’s found a way to make it up to you. On February 2nd Lifetime will air Betty & Coretta, an original movie about, according to this new promo, freedom, friendship, and a bunch of fantastic pantsuits. The film follows the lives of Coretta Scott King, played by Angela Bassett, and Betty Shabazz, played, divalicious-ly no doubt, by Mary J. Blige. Read More
With over 37, 400 signatures and counting, New York writer Sabrina Lamb has succeeded in getting Oxygen to drop their heinous show proposal “All My Babies’ Mamas.” The cancelled show would have followed Atlanta rapper Shawty Lo and his eleven children with their ten mothers. The Parents Television Council said the show was “grotesquely irresponsible and exploitative.” When Lamb first saw a promotion for the program, her “blood curdled.” She was especially concerned with the embarrassment the children would face for entertainment’s sake.

It turns out that Portlandia star Fred Armisen has an excellent Ira Glass impression in his arsenal of celebrity impersonations. Armisen delivered his best Ira Glass act on Glass's own NPR show, This American Life. The impression is also featured in a web exclusive out from NBC. Armisen's portrayal of Glass was scripted into a "Weekend Update" segment on SNL, but nixed after the audience didn't find it funny enough. Be sure to check out the video, as well as the prologue from their episode of This American Life. Read More
