Watch RuPaul's Queens Impersonate Big Ang, Little Richard and Adele

For RuPaul's Drag Race fans, the "Snatch Game" episode is basically our birthdays. Based on the old game show The Match Game—a choice which hearkens back to Ru's obsession with television of the '70s and '80s—each queen is tasked with impersonating a personality of their choice and competing in a fashion… » 4/14/15 6:15pm Tuesday 6:15pm

A Chat with the Botched Doctors On the Alluring Sideshow of Hack Jobs

The first time I watched Botched, it was with equal levels of shock and shameful fascination. The premiere episode featured a woman with a lumpy uni-boob. Subsequent episodes: a woman whose ass implant flipped, a Justin Bieber wannabe, Janice Dickinson and a woman whose tragic tummy tuck had repositioned… » 4/14/15 4:00pm Tuesday 4:00pm

Love Her/Hate Her: Welcome to Nurse Jackie's Final Season

It’s impossible to love Jackie Peyton; but then it’s impossible to hate her, too. And unlike many characters on television, the viewer’s perception of her changes not from season to season but from moment to moment, as she performs heroics but then destroys her own life and the lives of others. So let’s discuss what… » 4/13/15 6:30pm Monday 6:30pm

NOOOOO: Veep Loses Show Creator Armando Iannucci

Armando Iannucci—the genius wit behind such works as In the Loop, The Thick of It and The Armando Iannucci Shows—is stepping down as showrunner on HBO’s Veep, the brilliant, Julia Louis-Dreyfus-starring political comedy that he created in 2012. He will be replaced by Curb Your Enthusiasm’s David Mandel. » 4/10/15 6:40pm 4/10/15 6:40pm

Veep's Timothy Simons: Jonah Is Living the White Male American Dream

Tune into HBO’s political comedy Veep and you’ll find that there are few—if any—heroes. Set in in Washington, D.C. and, more specifically, the offices of Vice President Selina Meyer (played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus), the show’s cast of characters are as cut-throat as they are inept. But even in this world of selfish—and… » 4/09/15 2:50pm 4/09/15 2:50pm

Watch Twin Peaks Stars Plea for David Lynch to Return 

As previously reported, Twin Peaks is coming back! (YEAHHH!) But then David Lynch backed out because Showtime isn't giving him enough money to realize his vision. (NOOO!)

Real Housewives of New York, aka 'Bethenny Getting Everything,' Is Back

“I’m not a housewife, but I am real,” is Bethenny Frankel’s new tagline for her return to the Real Housewives of New York, the show she left when she got everything she wanted. Now she’s lost some of it, and has come back to the brand that made her famous, bruised, and battered. But she’s still determined to be on… » 4/08/15 12:45pm 4/08/15 12:45pm

An Appreciation: What I Learned Re-Watching A Different World

When Friends hit Netflix in January, a nonstop, nauseating celebration followed. When A Different World got added in March, there was much quieter jubilation, mostly in black circles. This was a series that had as much influence—if not more—than its precursor, The Cosby Show, and found a space for an audience of… » 4/07/15 2:00pm 4/07/15 2:00pm

Jon Stewart Politely Addresses Idiotic Trevor Noah Tweet Controversy 

Last week, Trevor Noah was announced as Jon Stewart’s successor to host The Daily Show. You may remember the ridiculous amount of so-called backlash that followed, involving some of Noah’s old jokes on Twitter. Stewart addressed this at the top of Monday’s edition of The Daily Show, after a week off. » 4/07/15 9:30am 4/07/15 9:30am

Mad Men: Joan Would Like To Burn Shit Down, & Other Feminist Concerns

The primary goal of the miniskirt was never about tempting men: designer Mary Quant, mother of the mini, always said its construction was meant for woman's lib, literally. "I liked my skirts short because I wanted to run and catch the bus to get to work," she told the Scotland Herald last year. "It was that feeling of… » 4/06/15 12:35pm 4/06/15 12:35pm

An Interview With Stacy Beverly, Costume Designer for Black-ish

On ABC's hit series Black-ish, about an extended upper-middle-class family going through typical suburban family motions with a gimlet eye towards race, characters have an incredible sense of style that sets the tone for the show. Colors are bright, styles are simultaneously nuanced and over the top, while the… » 4/01/15 5:10pm 4/01/15 5:10pm
