Last night Amy Poehler, living goddess and two-time BUST cover-lady, joined Jimmy Fallon on Late Night for a hilarious interview that included five-second celebrity impressions and reminiscing about fake movies they've starred in together. As always, Poehler employed her ninja-like improv skills to create ridiculous story lines to go along with the posters. Read More
Journalist Amy Goodman, host of my personal favorite source of news, Democracy Now!, is winning the Gandhi Peace Award today. DN! is a daily news broadcast that airs on more than 1,000 public television and radio stations worldwide, and doesn't accept any money from advertisers, corporations, or the government (so they're free to report independently and accurately). If you’ve never seen an episode, I suggest going to their website and tuning in. The show has given me a great education over the years--I really can’t say enough good things about it. Read More
Leave it to RuPaul to make a reunion special interesting. I’ve been watching reality TV since the original New Orleans season of Real World, when Julie the Mormon got kicked out of Brigham Young University for co-habitating with men. Yet I’ve only tuned in to a reunion special once or twice (and one of those occasions was when I needed to see what Teresa would say after she flipped that table on Real Housewives of New Jersey).

30 Rock Gets Live

BY Intern Tessa in TV

Tonight, 30 Rock will take another crack at a live episode, meaning that we'll be biting our nails while we watch Tina and Alec perform without the benefit of sweet, sweet editing. According to the NBC plot synopsis, the show will center around TGS airing live shows vs. pre-taped ones-- very meta: "When their Kabletown bosses announce they will no longer pay for TGS to be a live show, Liz Lemon and Jack Donaghy realize their lives will actually be easier if they shoot canned episodes fast and cheap.

After successful stints on SNL and 30 Rock, we all know that Jon Hamm is not only an impeccable dramatic actor, but also a fantastic comedian. This week, witness Jon and several other Mad Men actors crack wise and heckle one another in an episode of the Nerdist’s All Star Celebrity Bowling. Don Draper, Pete Campbell, Harry Crane (ok, Jon Hamm, Vincent Kartheiser, and Rich Sommer) and show-creator Matt Weiner faceoff against “Weird Al” Yankovic and Nerdist creator Chris Hardwick in the bowling match to end all bowling matches.

RuPaul, of all people, should know the value of a climax. So why then was last night’s "finale"of RuPaul’s Drag Race so unbelievably anti-climactic? Because they didn’t announce a winner! Ugh, this show. I think we all sort of saw this coming, because the title of the episode was "The Final Three," but still. If the prospect of finally finding out what Willam did wasn’t enough to drum up an audience for the reunion episode next week, this definitely is.  For the final challenge, the remaining contestants starred in a music video for RuPaul’s song "Glamazon.

BUSTies, get your Cornballers cornballing because there’s fantastic news about the Arrested Development reunion! I, like every fan of the show (there are dozens of us! DOZENS!), pretty much blue myself when creator Mitch Hurwitz and the cast revealed at the New Yorker Festival that there would at long last be a reunion in the form of a brief mini-season (10 episodes) and a movie. (For those of you who are unfamiliar with the plight of the show, it was stupidly canceled during its highly acclaimed and popular third season and has since obtained cult status. Read More

Ellen Is Terrifying

BY Intern Tessa in TV

Beloved TV host Ellen (no last name necessary, obvs) loves to make her audience dance, viewers laugh, and guests piss their pants when she scares the hell out of them. Daytime TV fans know that she loves to scare her celebrity guests, either on stage during interviews or in the green room. The results are freaking hilarious, since the celebs involuntarily drop their masks of professionalism in favor of screaming like 5-year-olds. This is just another reason why I love Ellen so much! I WANT HER TO SCARE ME! Ellen has a whole page on her site dedicated to this devious prank. Read More
In two days, Lena Dunham's HBO series "Girls" will finally premiere after months and months of hype. And while that hype has been mostly positive, sometimes even downright reverent (Emily Nussbaum writes: "When a TV critic reports on a new show, it’s okay to say the series is promising, even the next big thing, but ideally, one shouldn’t go native. One should probably also talk in the third person. In this case, however, I’ll have to make an exception. Because from the moment I saw the pilot of Girls, I was a goner, a convert. Read More
  Murphy Brown, the empowering and boundaries-pushing sitcom from the 80’s and 90’s is winning an Impact Award at the 10th annual TV Land Awards. Candace Burgen starred in this show as a successful reporter. It explored her character’s career and personal life, and dared to tackle controversial subjects such as single motherhood, for which it took a lot of flack. Read More
