What Are We Thinking About State of Affairs?

Monday night was the premiere of State of Affairs, NBC's new DC drama and Katherine Heigl's solemn return to television. I'm glad NBC decided to fill this void because between Scandal, House of Cards, Veep, Homeland and Madam Secretary, I was seriously craving a television program that gave me an inside look into a… » 11/18/14 3:50pm Tuesday 3:50pm

An Introvert In TV Land: Finding My Inner GPS

When a producer from The Steve Harvey Show contacted me after reading a few essays I'd published in The Huffington Post about relationships and dating, and invited me to be on the show, I didn't quite believe it to be true. I'd written "Public Service Announcement for a First Date," "Is My Dating Life Doomed?" and "… » 11/14/14 2:43pm 11/14/14 2:43pm

Geena Davis Does a Great Impression of Jack Nicholson Hitting on Her

On Jimmy Kimmel Thursday night, Geena Davis stopped by and talked about her early years in the business (she got her start as a Victoria's Secret model). Davis revealed that when she worked with Dustin Hoffman on Tootsie, he gave her something to say to get out of sleeping with costars who were hitting on her: "I'm… » 11/07/14 10:10am 11/07/14 10:10am

WTF Was This Cop Car Sex Scene Doing in Sons of Anarchy?

I watch Sons of Anarchy every week and I've put up with some foolishness, but Tuesday night's episode might've boasted the show's dumbest scene yet. In it, a female cop asks her biker informant-turned-lover to publicly do her on her police car to prove his affection. Did I mention it all goes down as another biker… » 11/05/14 2:50pm 11/05/14 2:50pm

Are You Hurting Your Brain By "Hate-Watching" Bad Television?

Everybody does it. We obsessively watch TV shows that we kind of despise, and then we mock them, and complain about them on the internet afterwards. "Hate-watching" is a thing now. What's going on — are we just masochists? Are we doing serious damage to our bodies? What's the worst thing that could happen to us? » 11/03/14 4:29pm 11/03/14 4:29pm

Revisiting Geek Love, a Real American Horror Story

I first read Katherine Dunn's 1989 novel Geek Love several years ago on the recommendation of my friend Robin. At that point, she still lived in Arkansas, and I'd just come through on tour with a heavy metal band from Georgia. She insisted I give it a chance, ignoring my insistence that I don't usually read fiction.… » 10/29/14 6:00pm 10/29/14 6:00pm

Here's Blood Orange Reinterpreting Janet Jackson on Kimmel

When Blood Orange aka Dev Hynes performed a solo version of "Time Will Tell" on Kimmel Tuesday night, it was a pitch-perfect recreation of the video—interpretive dance moves and an all-white ensemble, a sort of inverse of the intimate choreography Janet Jackson threw down in the video for "Pleasure Principle,"… » 10/29/14 1:30pm 10/29/14 1:30pm

Female Lawyers Group Asks NBC to Put Bad Judge Out of its Misery

Kate Walsh's new NBC series has recently come under fire for its lumbering and very off-the-mark depiction of a sassy, questionably clad, highly unethical female judge. Two weeks after the show debuted on Oct. 2, Deborah Baker, president of the Miami-Dade Chapter of the Florida Association for Women Lawyers, sent a … » 10/26/14 2:45pm 10/26/14 2:45pm

The Walking Dead's Costume Designer on Dressing Women for World's End

Life during a zombie apocalypse can get pretty grim. Between roving bands of undead walkers trying to snack on your grey matter and feral humans roasting each other into lunch meat, there's precious little time to think about how you actually look. Eulyn Womble, the Costume Designer for The Walking Dead, is charged… » 10/24/14 12:20pm 10/24/14 12:20pm

After All That, Ratings for The View Are Down

To some, The View is simply a daytime talk show to fold laundry to. To others, it is a modern day Shakespearean play that we're watching unfold in real time. The show has had its comedic moments, at times it feels like a tragedy and there's even a bit of romance. And now, we have yet another page in saga of 4-5 women… » 10/22/14 6:00pm 10/22/14 6:00pm
