AHS: Hotel Premiere Includes Lady Gaga as Crazy Sex Vampire and a Rape Scene

A drag queen walks into an elevator with a cop and says, “You’ve lost something and now you’re frozen in time. Can’t go forward, can’t go back.” Not the set-up for an “amirite” joke but, apparently, an overly on-the-nose scene that hints at what’s going on in American Horror Story: Hotel, the follow-up to last year’s … »10/08/15 10:30amThursday 10:30am

Watch The Affair's Pretty Hilarious Full-Frontal Peen Scene

The Affair, an excellent show about the nuances and complications of infidelity and self-identity interspersed with fuckloads of sex scenes, commenced its second season last night, expanding its two-person perspective to four by including the viewpoints of spurned spouses Helen and Cole. »10/05/15 10:26amMonday 10:26am

Showtime's The Affair Reflects Real Marriages More Than You Think


On Showtime’s hit series The Affair, premiering October 4th for a second season, Dominic West plays Noah Solloway, a man who seems to have it all: Happily (and faithfully) married to his first love Helen (Maura Tierney) for seventeen years; four healthy children; financial stability; a newly published novel; and a… »10/04/15 12:45pmSunday 12:45pm

An Obsessed John Stamos Fan Watches Grandfathered

The premise of Grandfathered—a seasoned playboy suddenly learns he has a secret son—might not sound so riveting at first. But throw in a dynamic cast, fresh jokes and a new twist, and the new Fox sitcom just might become one of your favorite shows of the season. I laughed out loud multiple times, and no, I had not… »9/30/15 10:39am9/30/15 10:39am

Is Brooklyn Nine-Nine Turning Into a Rom Com?

I love autumn: it’s TV’s cuffing season, when all sitcoms suddenly become rom coms. In both The Mindy Project’s Season 4 premiere earlier this month and Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s start to Season 3 this week, relationships got serious. For two seasons, Brooklyn Nine-Nine ran on the steam of detective Jake Peralta (Andy… »9/29/15 12:20pm9/29/15 12:20pm

Trevor Noah's Debut on The Daily Show Felt Good, Didn't It

Trevor Noah did solidly swell in his debut as host of The Daily Show on Monday night. As with anyone inheriting a TV show for the first time, there were moderate levels of awkwardness, nervous adjustment and self-awareness. Appropriately, though, Noah started by extending gratitude to his predecessor, who bequeathed… »9/29/15 10:15am9/29/15 10:15am

Twerking Unites Empire Enemies Cookie and Boo Boo Kitty

Empire’s Season 2 premiere was an auspicious one, to say the least. In the first several minutes, a host of cameos by people (including Rev. Al Sharpton, André Leon Talley) and designers (two mentions of Tom Ford, plus Gucci, albeit “last season”) exemplified how much cachet the show has garnered after just one… »9/24/15 12:15pm9/24/15 12:15pm

The Black-ish 'N Word' Episode Turned Out Just Fine

Conversations about “nigga” tend to sputter to a stop. Inevitably, generational divides and stout beliefs come into play, but the focus is always on who gets to say it and why. We then debate about whether these debates, as prevalent as the word itself, are even worth having. They definitely are, especially when done… »9/24/15 11:45am9/24/15 11:45am

A Comprehensive Wish List of Empire Guest Stars

After a summer of nothing but “Drip Drop” and “Trap Queen” on repeat, Empire finally returns to our lives tonight. Much like the first season, this second one is jam-packed with guest stars, including Marisa Tomei, Chris Rock, Lenny Kravitz, Pitbull and Mariah Carey. Honestly, it sounds like a snoozefest. »9/23/15 4:40pm9/23/15 4:40pm

Scream Queens Is Offensive, Tasteless, and Pretty Fucking Funny

“Name one bad thing that’s ever happened in a Best Buy parking lot,” a security guard tells her friend midway through the Scream Queens pilot. The joke, of course, is a reference to the death of Hae Min Lee, whose real-life murder—a story popularized by the podcast Serial—may have happened in the parking lot of a Best… »9/23/15 12:40pm9/23/15 12:40pm

Meet The Voice's Siahna Im, Your New Favorite Wildly Talented 15-Year-Old

You might think after nine seasons of The Voice, which airs so frequently it becomes grueling, that you have seen every type of person singing throatily and passionately the US has to offer. But you’d be wrong! On last night’s Season 9 premiere, America got its first view of Siahna Im, a bananas talented 15-year-old… »9/22/15 9:17am9/22/15 9:17am
