Stiletto Workouts: Finally, a Way to Get Skinny and Break Your Foot…

Here's a thing I won't be doing in 2013: Stiletto workouts, the technically-still-a-virgin-if- you-don't-count-in-the-butt cousin of the pole dancing workout. The minds behind the workout claim it's "empowering," which I suppose it kind of is, if you're the sort of person who is empowered by thongs with sassy sayings… » 12/28/12 4:50pm 12/28/12 4:50pm

A Touching Farewell to Work It, the Worst Show Ever

You know what they say: You don't know what you've got 'til it's gone. Farewell, puerile humor. So long, terrible wigs. Goodbye, offensive stereotypes and insensitive jokes. It's true, I never actually watched either of the two episodes of Work It that aired before ABC cancelled the show… but I'll miss being… » 1/20/12 2:20pm 1/20/12 2:20pm

Dreadfully Unfunny Sitcom Work It Is Finally Canceled

The bad news is someone actually greenlit Work It and went through the trouble of inflicting two entire episodes on the American public's airwaves. The good news is after those two episodes, ABC has decided to cancel the completely atrocious show. » 1/16/12 2:50pm 1/16/12 2:50pm

Work It: Men Don't Have Jobs and It's Women's Fault


There's been a lot of good news lately for the woman-driven television comedy— Lena Dunham's Girls will soon premiere on HBO, popular Twitter author Kelly Oxford sold a script to NBC and the hilarious Broad City will be developed into a series by FX, to name a few—but that's easy to forget when you've got complete… » 1/11/12 5:30pm 1/11/12 5:30pm

Network Exec Just Doesn't 'Get' Accusations of Bigotry

When you're a network executive, and a major advocacy group is upset that one of your shows is offensive to trans people, the best course of action might be — at the very least — to compose a thoughtful and well-reasoned response. Or, you could be like ABC Entertainment President Paul Lee, who responded to GLAAD's… » 1/10/12 4:10pm 1/10/12 4:10pm

Economy Forcing Men To Lower Themselves & Take Awful Ladyjobs

Remember the recession (or, alternately: he-cession, or man-cession, or The Great American Economic Cockblock) when no one could shut up about how men were losing their jobs in droves and ladies were the only people gainfully employed? Well, banish those obnoxious neologisms from your vocabulary right this instant—… » 1/03/12 2:00pm 1/03/12 2:00pm

New Unfunny Sitcom Offends Just About Everyone

Plenty of comedies are based on the idea that there's inherent humor in men dressing up as women, from Some Like It Hot to Bosom Buddies. If you need proof that the entire concept is dated, look no further than the trailer for Work It, a new sitcom premiering on ABC in January. The 90-second clip is so unbearably… » 12/22/11 10:40am 12/22/11 10:40am

A New Sitcom About Women In The Workplace, Starring Men

ABC's remake of Charlie's Angels was canceled, but apparently the network had some leftover skirt suits. Why else would execs greenlight Bosom Buddies Deux — sorry, Work It? » 11/29/11 4:55pm 11/29/11 4:55pm

Calling Bullshit On Leg-Toning Shoes

The American Council on Exercise finds shape-up shoes aren't miraculous — and could harm. "There is simply no evidence to support claims that these shoes will help wearers exercise more intensely, burn more calories or improve muscle strength and tone." » 8/17/10 1:00pm 8/17/10 1:00pm

Upper Management: Clinton Proves Mettle By Making Sure Things Get Done

I think I've finally realized why Tina Brown's July 13 screed about Hillary Clinton continues to bother me so much. Thing is, it took today's fawning coverage of Hillary's heroic, journalist-saving husband, Bill, to figure out why. » 8/05/09 5:40pm 8/05/09 5:40pm
