U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor stopped by Sesame Street to dish out some career advice to the adorably oblivious, princess-obsessed Muppet Abby Cadabby. “Pretending to be a princess is fun, but it is definitely not a career,” says Sotomayor. "A career is a job you train for and prepare for and plan on doing for a long time." Though it is technically possible to make a career out of being a princess—and young Ms. Read More
It’s been about a year since we’ve had any new content from Oscar-winning screenwriter/total badass Diablo Cody, and if you’re anything like me this fact is a total bummer.

Maria Bamford, who you may know as the "the crazy Christmas lady" in Target's Black Friday ad campaign the past three years, is a funny woman. Funny enough that she recently played a recurring character on the fX series Louie and will soon recur in the upcoming reboot of Arrested Development on Netflix.  Good timing, since Bamford will be releasing her first direct-to-fans special Maria Bamford: The Special Special Special! on November 28, 2012.  This one-hour "anti-special" features the comedian performing stand-up in her living room for her parents, Joel and Marilyn.

If you’re not as obsessed with Parks and Rec as you should be (Seriously. Go watch every single episode right now, that show is perfect), you might not know that Amy Poehler’s character Leslie Knope is in love with Biden.

  Sarah Silverman was on Conan O’Brien’s show last night, and of course she was vulgar, scandalous, and absolutely hilarious. Silverman started the segment by showing Conan an iPhone trick that kids everywhere will be doing now: she took a close-up of Conan’s mouth on her phone and positioned it between her legs like a vagina, totally embarrassing the host. The best part was when Conan’s co-host, Andy Richter, got in on the fun, saying, "Now I really wish you still had the beard. Read More
Sadly, I missed last week’s episode of OUAT due to Hurricane Sandy–however, I am grateful that I didn’t have any actual problems to deal with. But it gave me some time to rethink my weekly recaps, and instead of doing a long, boring recap of every scene, I’ve decided to focus on five hilarious, shocking, bewildering, or just WTF moments from each episode.  Without further delay, here’s what happened in this week's episode: Emma’s Past. The episode is called Tallahassee, and for a good reason. Read More
Boy Meets World fans out there may be in for a big surprise; rumors have been circulating about a possible sequel series to the beloved show, tentatively called Girl Meets World, which will be centered around Cory and Topanga’s preteen daughter.

The episode begins in Storybrooke with Belle having doubts about Rumple and concerns about if he’s really going to change or keep using magic to control others. Read More

Movie Review: The Girl

BY Maggie Carr in TV

“Blondes make the best victims,” Alfred Hitchcock once said. “They’re like virgin snow that shows up the bloody footprints.” So begins The Girl, HBO’s deeply (and rightly) gnarly exploration of the fraught relationship between Hitchcock and arguably the most legendary of his blonde ingénues, Tippi Hedren (Sienna Miller).
