Mika Brzezinski Awesomely Gives Random Woman a Major Career Boost

When she's not being steamrolled on a daily basis by Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski takes time to help young women. On Tuesday evening, after a panel discussion at Columbia University Journalism School, Brzezinski took out her phone and called up a friend to see if she could get a young woman who had asked her for… » 10/09/13 12:50pm 10/09/13 12:50pm

Watch Ron Weasley's Failed Pilot Super Clyde Online

Hogwarts #1 Hottie Rupert Grint was set to star in a single-camera comedy called Super Clyde from Raising Hope creator Greg Garcia. Even though the series didn't move forward, Garcia lobbied CBS execs to at least let folks see their finished product online. Which, is weird and surprising and ultimately wonderful… » 10/09/13 10:25am 10/09/13 10:25am

Sara Volz, Teenage Scientist of Tomorrow, Turned Her Room into a Lab

In the not-so-distant future, when humanities majors (the unskilled laborers of academia) become so commonplace that they make Falstaff’s birthday a national holiday on which people are only allowed to talk to each other in heroic couplets, anyone who studied a hard science (i.e. not sociology) will be treated like a… » 4/28/13 12:30pm 4/28/13 12:30pm

Sarah Michelle Gellar and Robin Williams To Star In CBS Pilot Crazy Ones

Like that part on a baby's head where if you drop them they die, there is a dangerously soft spot in my heart for Sarah Michelle Gellar because, like many of us, I consumed four seasons worth of Buffy The Vampire Slayer at an impressionable braces-wearing age. And also: Cruel Intentions! Nothing wrong with that. » 2/16/13 4:00pm 2/16/13 4:00pm

Vanderbilt Football Coach Brags About Only Hiring Assistants Who Have…

Vanderbilt University's head football coach is in hot water for telling a radio host that when he looks to hire assistants, he first looks at their wives, you know, to make sure they're "Division 1 material." I had an inkling that Vandy's decision to hire the pervy kid brother from a John Hughes movie would backfire. » 5/31/12 5:45pm 5/31/12 5:45pm

World's Oldest Yoga Teacher Might Also Be World's Happiest Person

For a while, we thought that 91-year-old Bernice Bates of Florida was the world's oldest yoga instructor, but it turns out the Guinness Book of World Records has just given 93-year-old Tao Porchon-Lynch the official title. She's been teaching yoga for 61 years, and it has kept her in amazing shape. She loves doing it,… » 5/17/12 10:25am 5/17/12 10:25am

Lucy Liu Will Play Watson in New Sherlock Holmes Show, If You Can Dig It

CBS has picked up a new batch of half-baked shows that will either give viewers salmonella or be melty and delicious, including a Sherlock Holmes show called — brace yourselves — Elementary. Another Sherlock Holmes something, you say with an exasperated sigh and an exclamation point[!] Ah, but this Sherlock Holmes… » 5/13/12 5:45pm 5/13/12 5:45pm

Ann Romney Awkwardly Describes Mitt as 'Wild & Crazy Man Just Waiting…

The words "wild" and "crazy" were completely stripped of meaning today as Ann Romney, wife and apparently also the mommy of Presidential candidate Mitt Romney described her husband as a "wild and crazy guy" while Mitt laughed like a kid having his cheeks pinched by a doting aunt. It was weird. » 5/01/12 12:00pm 5/01/12 12:00pm

Jim Henson's Original Pitch for The Muppet Show Is a Thing of Beauty

This isn't exactly new, but it's worth a watch because it will remind you of just how much you loved The Muppet Show. It's an original pitch that Jim Henson made for the show to sell it to CBS, and it's quite a tour de force. It's all the best things—the knowing humor, the visual tricks, the pure charm—that ended up… » 4/09/12 9:45pm 4/09/12 9:45pm

CBS Is The Sexiest Network For Watching Sexy People Make Sexy Sex…

Finally, the lame "scandalized yet?" tone of CBS's sitcom sex jokes gets a send-up from the Upright Citizens Brigade's Leila Cohan-Miccio and Brandon Lisy. Because when you think "CBS," you definitely think, "intercourse!" CBS ain't no virgin T.V. network. From Two and a Half Men to 2 Broke Girls, that's like four… » 3/29/12 6:40pm 3/29/12 6:40pm
