First Peek At Pee-Wee Herman's HBO Show

We haven't seen too much of him since he beat the crap out of Anderson Cooper. That's because he's been preparing -- biding his time so that he can beat the crap out of all of us with nostalgia-based comedy. We haven't seen too much of him since he beat the crap out of Anderson Cooper, but that's because he's been preparing. Biding his time so that he can beat the crap out of all of us with nostalgia-based comedy. And you won't have to wait in the long TKTS line to see it. Pee-Wee Herman is bringing his Broadway show to the world via HBO. Could the crazy-ass movies he's been planning over the last fifteen years be far behind? The channel has put together this teaser trailer of Pee-Wee getting ready for his big night. You'll be able to see the hyper-asexual 52 year-old talk to chairs when "The Pee-Wee Herman Show" premieres on HBO on Saturday, March 19th at 10pm. (via /Film)

Pee-wee Herman Has A Drinking Problem

Bad things always happen when Pee-wee leaves the playhouse. If you're like me, the combination of the words "Gwyneth Paltrow," "hosting," and"Saturday Night Live" caused you to unplug your television until Sunday morning. Which means you missed this fun Digital Short starring Andy Samberg and Pee-wee Herman. In the short, Samberg coaxes Herman off the milk-only wagon and learns that the beloved children's entertainer has a bit of a problem. No, not that one. A drinking problem this time. Further proof that tequila changes a man. One minute your making ice cream soup with a room full of puppets, the next you're assaulting police officers and respected news anchors. Totally reckless. Some drinking buddies are just bad for one another.


Yup, Tim From 'Tim And Eric' Can Make A Weirder Herman Cain Ad Than Herman Cain Can

This is where I would put in my interpretation of the video you're about to see, but it's a 'Tim and Eric' video, so that's impossible. Well, in case you thought Herman Cain would go unchallenged in the competition for "weirdest campaign ad ever," you can rest assured that he barely had the title for 24 hours before Tim Heidecker of Tim and Eric fame stood up and said, "Not so fast there, Herm." (He calls Herman Cain "Herm" in this little parable.) This droning song and video has me wanting to slowly march outside, through oncoming traffic, to find the nearest polling place so that I may "ride the Cain train" with a vote for Herman Cain. For President. 2012. Do you think that if Cain lost the presidential election but won the title of "YouTube Sensation" that he would consider his campaign a victory? Lord knows I would. This guy hasn't been on my radar for very long, but he's really been entertaining. Way funnier than George W. Bush and that whole "there are weapons of mass destruction in Iraq" vaudeville act he pulled 10 years ago. That got old quick.


Anderson Cooper Kicks 'Barbie Mom' Off His Show

He calls his guest "dreadful!" How delightfully Victorian! Anderson Cooper, in addition to becoming a John Slattery-like sex symbol among middle-aged women and probably more than a few bashful men, is quickly becoming one of the most entertaining talk show hosts around. Not entertaining in a Geraldo Rivera-jackass type way, but in that he manages to balance his decorum with an ability to get completely awed by the weirdness of what he has to report. This time it's "Barbie Mom," aka Sarah Burge, a woman who has gone to lengths to make herself look like Barbie. Which is stupid and fine, I guess, but Cooper draws the line when she talks about sticking Botox in her 15 year-old daughter to get her to stop sweating during pageants, kicking her off in what would be a vulgar display of power by AC standards. Take a look.


Watch The Early 'Roger Rabbit' Effort At Disney, With Pee-Wee Voicing Roger Rabbit

Why would someone make Jessica Rabbit ugly? Do you want to live in a world where Jessica Rabbit is not the sexiest girl on the block? Me neither. But that's what may have been, had an early (1983) effort by Disney called Roger Rabbit, found success and supplanted its successor, the 1988 Who Framed Roger Rabbit? The video content is pretty unremarkable, except for all the hallmarks that remind us exactly how long ago 1983 was. It was a LONG time ago. You can tell because everything looks like shit, and a host is walking around with a full-on, elementary school-style tape recorder around his neck. But back to the matter at hand: This failed attempt featured Paul "Pee-Wee" Reubens as the voice of the rabbit himself, and a less-than-sultry Jessica Rabbit. Let's take a moment to appreciate how everything turned out.

HBO Gets Medieval With 'Game Of Thrones' Trailer

"Then it's agreed. We're going to do a show based on "Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament." The first non-teaser trailer for "Game of Thrones" is up, and it looks exactly like HBO had a development meeting and the executives walked away saying, "Then it's agreed. We're going to do a show based on "Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament." The trailer focuses far more on the setting and period of the show than it does on the intricacies of the plot, which isn't much of a criticism, seeing as how this is the first real look at a show that is still seven weeks away from premiering, but it's doubtful that casual HBO viewers will be left salivating after this look. A dude gets beheaded, guys joust, a midget runs, and a few people have unnaturally blonde hair. Those are the big takeaways from the attached video. HBO may assume (perhaps rightfully) that people will ascertain the plot after watching the first episode, which many will simply because, hey, it's a new HBO series. (Warming Glow)


'Human Centipede 2' Trailer Sucks Crap (In The Sense That It Looks Horrible)

This movie is so gross, they can't even show it to you. Though they still aren't showing us any footage of Tom Six's new butt-to-mouth monster, a new teaser for The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) has been stitched together. The teaser focuses on viewers recoiling in horror while watching a private screening of the sequel. That footage is juxtaposed with the early reviews condemning the grotesque film imagery, as well as using the fact that it is banned in Britain as a selling point. In all fairness, these viewers don't seem genuinely scared or upset and could be watching a flicker for all we know. Or The Zookeeper. But, for their sake, I'm hoping it's the flicker.


New Video Shows How Judgmental Netflix's 'Are You Still Watching?' Can Be

We've all been there... Anyone who has Netflix is undoubtedly familiar with the binge-watching feature that allows episodes to seamlessly play one after the other, only to ask "Are you still watching?" after every fourth or so. Presumably in an effort to save data and power, but practically as a Jiminy Cricket on your shoulder, suggesting that it's a nice day outside or that Monet exhibit is only around for two more weeks. We disappoint it a little bit when we have to inform it, "Yeah, we're still watching. This is what our day's gonna be, jerk," but that's the nature of the energy-saving feature, now isn't. (A.V. Club)
