Season 3, Episode 5 "Angles and Monsters" We're back from last week's trip to the future and everything is going to hell, fast. Plus, we finally get to meet Arthur Petrelli and his super eyebrows. Suresh:

Mad Men Gets Jet Set
Monday, October 13 by

You know when you’re really into a girl when even the little post coital ditties she pens don’t turn you off. So Roger must have it pretty bad for Jane, because her musings on the sticky sheets of the Waldorf Astoria enchant him like a snake charmer stiffening a Cobra, and dear Jane gets struck with a marriage proposal.

Recap: The Office Hits a Playoff Slump
Friday, October 10 by

Recap: Season 5, Episode 2 "Business Ethics" I almost feel bad calling this a bad episode, because it was still funnier than most other things on TV, but compared to the premiere from two weeks ago, "Business Ethics" is a bit of a drag. At least we got to see Dwight piss into a soda bottle. Michael and Holly:

Preview: “Testees” Premiere Is Mental
Thursday, October 9 by

FX hit the ball out of the park when it took a chance on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and they're hoping to recreate that offensive, indy magic with their new series Testees. I have seen the premiere and I can tell you that it's almost as funny as it is totally ridiculous.

Recap: South Park and the Crystal Skull
Thursday, October 9 by

Season 12, Episode 8 "The China Problem". The guys had a long summer vacation and they have clearly saved up some of their frustrations to fuel the fall premiere. Eric and Butters take on our former Olympic hosts, the Chinese, while Kyle, Stan and Kenny try to nail George Lucas and Stephen Spielberg for "raping" Indiana Jones. Yes.

Eric Cartman’s 9 Most Evil Moments
Wednesday, October 8 by

South Park is back for the second part of season 12 and it has reminded me of how much I love hating Eric Cartman. That little boy has done some truly messed up stuff and this is some of the worst. Or should I say best? Whatever. 9. Molesting Butters

Vatican Talks For Week Straight On TV
Monday, October 6 by

The Vatican has planned a 139-hour bible reading marathon on Italian TV in hopes of making the church more cool. They are calling it “a sort of ‘Big Brother’ of the Holy Scriptures, but with really high cultural value.” Wow.

Recap: Mad Men Has Father Daughter Touching
Monday, October 6 by

Episode 2.10, “The Inheritance” starts on Pete Campbell listing potential clients in a meeting with Don and the bunch. Looks like the team is headed to Pasadena to schmooze with the aerospace industry about finding ways to sell their image. Back in the bedroom with his wife, there’s still tension about the no-baby, and Pete is not hearing any of it.

Recap: Entourage Is Trippin’
Monday, October 6 by

Recap: Season 5, Episode 5 "The Truth Seekers" Hey, look at that. Vince still can't get a job. But rather than addressing the cliffhanger set up at the end of last week's episode, the gang takes off into the dessert to trip balls. Vince:

Bonus Features: Ralph Wiggum Is Rich
Friday, October 3 by

I guess all of that Simpsons money should be more than enough to buy Ralph Wiggum a nice Bimmer, but he doesn't have to flaunt it like that. Cartoon characters are real, right? I hope so. Otherwise all of that stock I bought in the Planet Express delivery company isn't going to be worth much. But then again, I guess no stock is worth much right now. Take that economy!

Fringe “The Arrival” Is a Little Slow
Wednesday, October 1 by

Recap: Season 1, episode 4. We start out in a diner where a creepy-looking guy orders the spiciest sandwich he can think of and watches construction workers through the window. Suddenly, there's a huge explosion, and as the workers are running, our bad breath-having friend walks into the epicenter, calls someone on the phone and says, "It has arrived."

Robin Getting His Own Pre-Batman TV Show
Wednesday, October 1 by

If I had to pick a character from the DC universe to get his or her own TV show, Robin would probably have been somehwere near the bottom of the list near Hawkman, but The Graysons, which tells the story of the Boy Wonder before he falls in with Batman has apparently gotten the green light by the CW. Here's hoping it's not another Birds of Prey. Yikes.

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.

13 Spin-Off Worthy Simpsons Characters
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

Heroes “One of Us, One of Them”
Tuesday, September 30 by

Recap: Season 3, episode 3. With last week's premiere extravaganza in the bag, there are lots of new mysteries to unravel and lots of new super powers to be jealous of.

True Blood “Escape from Dragon House”
Monday, September 29 by

Recap: Season 1, episode 4. Last week's episode was all that eventful, but this week's piece of the story is a little more exciting. We get to see our first vampire bar and Jason gets a boner that he can't get rid of. We've all been there, brother.

Mad Men’s “6th Month Leave” Is A Real Pisser
Monday, September 29 by

Episode 2.9 opens on Don in a hotel room. He’s not looking so hot. Marilyn Monroe, however, is way worse. She’s dead and the ladies of Sterling Cooper are taking it to heart. Betty Draper listens to the news of Monroe’s OD over a standing breakfast of red wine and broken nuptial sadness. 

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”
Friday, September 26 by

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.

Fringe “The Ghost Network”
Wednesday, September 24 by

This week's episode starts with a terrorist attack on a bus, as if public transportation didn't suck enough already.

Worst Week
Tuesday, September 23 by

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.
