Saudi Cleric Issues Fatwa On TV Execs
Tuesday, September 30 by

As weird and conservative as politics get in the US of A, we usually don’t have the Pat Robertsons and Jerry Falwells (R.I.P.) calling for the death of TV executives and show presenters over ‘immoral’ content. Saudi Arabia is a tad different.

Tuesday, September 30 by

With 20 seasons and a successful movie under their belts, the next logical expansion of the Simpsons empire would be a spin-off. If it's going to happen, here's a list of characters that would be perfect in the spotlight, plus a few that would totally suck. 13. Kent Brockman

Entourage “Fire Sale” Swims With Sharks
Monday, September 29 by

Recap: Season 5, Episode 4 "Fire Sale." Vince still can't really get any work, but finally the entire story they have been setting up for E is starting to pay off. It's going to be a lot of fun watching him fall apart under the pressure. Vince and Ari:

It’s Always Sunny: “The Gang Gets a Billboard”

Recap: Season 4, Episode 3 "America s Next Top Paddy s Billboard Model Contest" Really, the only complaint I have about this show is how long the title is when I'm typing it. Plot:

The Office Season 5 Premiere
Friday, September 26 by

Recap: Season 5, Episode 1 "Weight Loss."  By now it should be pretty clear that I like The Office, which makes me worry a little before the start of each season. Maybe it won't be as funny or maybe they'll bring in some shitty character to ruin the whole thing. Luckily, it seems like the awkward train has stayed right on track.

Sarah Michelle Gellar Getting Her Own Non-Vampire HBO Show
Friday, September 26 by

Unless you were a big Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan, this might not sound like big news. But, you should consider the fact that her new show, which is going to be called The Wonderful Maladys is going to be on HBO…a channel that shows boobs.

Worst Week

The Worst Week of My Life was a hit sitcom in Britain, but CBS is hoping that it will play here in the US, too. The main character, Sam, has to tell his future in-laws that he has impregnated their daughter. If that wasn't going to be hard enough, he keeps getting himself into incredibly wacky situations that are outrageous, even by sitcom standards.

Worst Week “Pilot” Is Funny, Awkward
Tuesday, September 23 by

Recap: Season 1, episode 1. If you're really into third party embarrassment, then Worst Week might be the best thing to happen to TV for you since The Office came stateside. Plot:

Kanye Developing Muppet-Like Show
Tuesday, September 23 by

Looks like Kanye has stopped smashing cameras at LAX long enough to develop a show for Comedy Central. They concept? Hip hop meets the Muppets. Sweet.

Heroes Season 3 Premiere Is Super
Tuesday, September 23 by

Recap: Season 3, episodes 1 and 2 "The Second Coming" and "Butterfly Effect"  No one would blame you if you gave up on Heroes last season, not even the writers. But after watching last night's episodes, I'm ready to believe that they're back to what made the show great in the first place.

7 “Heroes” Powers We Wouldn’t Want
Tuesday, September 23 by

With the return of Heroes on Monday, I have heard a bunch of people talking about which power from the show they would want for themselves. But there are a few abilities that never get any love, mainly because they would be useless in the real world. These are the seven powers I wouldn't bother putting on tights for. 7. Mass Poisoning

True Blood
Monday, September 22 by

It’s Louisiana, so everybody has to have a problem. If you’re black you’re also gay. If you work in a Walmart you have a rapier wit and are too smart for your surroundings. If you’re captain of the football team, you’re also a sex addict with a penchant for rough rolls in the swamp. If you’re a trailer park blonde, you’re also telepathic.

True Blood: “Mine” Explains Vampire Blood Is Better Than Viagra

At the end of episode 2, she was surrounded by raver looking vampires on the porch of Bill’s civil war mansion.

30 Rock, Mad Men and John Adams Go On Emmy-Winning Spree
Monday, September 22 by

No one expects you to actually watch the Emmy Awards Show. I have an unnatural relationship with TV and I can barely make it through them without falling asleep. But, that doesn't mean we can't criticize their choices from the comfort of our office chairs the morning after they happen.

Entourage “The All Out Fall Out”
Monday, September 22 by

Recap: Season 5 episode 3. You know, for a guy who is supposed to be making a come back, it sure looks like Vinny Chase is still falling further onto his hunky ass. Pretty soon, Eris is going to be the only guy in the crew with a job. Well, unless Turtle goes to work at Foot Locker or something. Vince:

Season 4 of It’s Always Sunny Kicks Off With “Mac and Dennis: Man Hunters”
Friday, September 19 by

The Office and 30 Rock haven't premiered yet, but I'm still pretty confident that It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is the funniest show on TV. Didn't catch the season premiere? Well, Charlie and Dee become cannibals, while Mac and Dennis go hunting for a homeless man. Awesome. Charlie and Dee:

The Ultimate Fighter Season 8 Premiere Is a Show of Balls
Thursday, September 18 by

The season premiere of The Ultimate Fighter: Team Nogueira vs. Team Mirbegan not with a bang, but with a whimper: As the 32 UFC hopefuls lined up to get pep-talked by Dana White, Phillipe Nover got a case of the vapors and passed out. (Is this show hardcore or what?!) To add further embarrassment to his situation, nobody seems to know how to pronounce Nover’s first name.

Sons of Anarchy
Thursday, September 18 by

FX is losing The Shield, but in an effort to keep their sky high level of grit intact, they came up with this brutal drama about an outlaw biker club. They run guns, get laid and beat the crap out of people, all in the name of a sacred pact of brotherhood…and booze.

House
Wednesday, September 17 by

I hate hospitals. You either go there when you're terribly sick or you come home with a baby. It's a no-win situation. But watching Hugh Laurie perfectly portray the grumpy genius doctor is worth feeling a little uncomfortable every week. He and his staff of less-brilliant doctors take on cases that would make normal docs hang up their stethescopes. It'll make you laugh. It will make you cry.

House: “Dying Changes Everything” Burns its Bra
Wednesday, September 17 by

Fringe
Wednesday, September 17 by

The X-Files have been off the air for years, but if your life just hasn't had enough TV drama laced with weird crap, then you're in luck. J.J. Abrams is taking a break from cashing his Lost checks to put together a science fiction series that deals with the dark and evil side of scientific research.

Fringe Gets Even Weirder In Episode 2
Wednesday, September 17 by

Recap: Season 1 episode 2. "The Same Old Story." After last week's pilot, comparisons to The X-Files were being thrown from every direction and this episode certainly isn't going to do anything to fix that. Story:
