You weren't invited to Taylor Swift's Fourth of July party, but Lena Dunham and Emma Stone were

So okay, you’re probably going, “Is this, like, a Noxzema commercial or what?” But seriously, Taylor Swift actually has a way normal life for a 24-year-old millionaire pop-country songstress. She goes to the beach with her famous friends on the Fourth of July… READ FULL STORY

'Seinfeld'-themed baseball game prompts fans to do the Elaine dance

Sure, the World Cup has produced a number of vivid and unusual dances from players on the field. But as the Brooklyn Cyclones’ Seinfeld-themed baseball game proved on Saturday, not even elite footballers can kick like Elaine Benes.

In honor of the sitcom’s 25th anniversary yesterday, the New York Mets-affiliated minor league team treated the city to Salute to Seinfeld Night, which featured players warming up in puffy shirts, visits from both the Soup Nazi actor and the real Kramer, and an appropriately absurd Elaine Dancing Contest.

Pop Culture Pet Peeve: Not every sex scene needs a lift

There’s very little that’s realistic about Hollywood sex scenes—the passionate kisses in the rain, the way everyone wakes up perfectly covered by an L-shaped sheet, etc. But there’s one increasingly frequent sex scene cliché that especially gets on my nerves. It’s when, moments after the couple starts kissing and it’s evident that things are going to take a naked turn, the man picks up the woman.

My pet peeve isn’t about the move itself: I’m annoyed about the sudden overuse of said move (I can’t think of a single sex scene as of late that hasn’t resulted in a lift). And let’s just say that it isn’t always done gracefully. READ FULL STORY

Watch Joel McHale and Tony Hale score drugs in 'Comedians in Cars Getting Cocaine'

MCHALE-HALE-COCAINE.jpg

L.A.-area dealers, beware: Tony Hale will not pay for his drugs.

That’s one of the many takeaways from “Comedians in Cars Getting Cocaine,” The Soup‘s Joel McHale-hosted spoof of Jerry Seinfeld’s friendlier, Coffee-ier web series. The video shows the cult-sitcom star picking up the, um, other cult-sitcom star for a nice top-down ride around Southern California. They discuss Arrested Development, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and how Tony Hale likes to numb away his shameful past with the power of cocaine.

Funny stuff! And hey, it’s not a bad day for an on-point homage to Jerry’s work (complete with light jazz!), given that today marks the 25th anniversary of the premiere of Seinfeld.

Watch the video below to see if McHale and Hale inhale:

Why Seth Gabel's son is lucky: His godfather is Olaf from 'Frozen'

PCPT-SETH-GABEL.jpg

Things that might surprise you about Salem star Seth Gabel: He credits Josh Gad, whom he’s known since kindergarten, with getting him into acting. He remembers the movie Twins fondly. And he has a well articulated theory about what Beavis and Butthead represented.

Hear it below when you watch him take our EW Pop Culture Personality Test. READ FULL STORY

4th of July TV marathons: Chomp down on 'The Walking Dead,' fortify with 'The Twilight Zone'

The weekend of July 4th is a time for doing American things: grilling, watching fireworks, ignoring zoning restrictions and setting off your own fireworks. But shenanigans are tiring, you know? The sun will give you a sunburn. The grill will make your clothes smell like smoke. We at EW much prefer to test our endurance in other ways, mostly by watching TV.

There’s a whole set of marathons on for the weekend, some highly publicized (can you make it through three straight days of The Walking Dead?), some obscure and ready for love (a marathon of the animated Transformers series, which is surely better than seeing the new movie in theaters). We’ve compiled a list from Friday through Sunday below. Trust us, this is way better than a weekend at the beach. READ FULL STORY

And the first evicted contestant from 'Big Brother' is...

[UPDATE: My full recap is live!] The first week of Big Brother saw the rise of a powerful new All-Male alliance called the Bomb Squad, which immediately became an All-Male-Plus alliance after Devin’s sudden, perhaps rash late-night addition of not-male Amber and Christine. The first week of Big Brother also saw the brief rise and hilariously accelerated fall of an All-Female alliance, “El Quattro” (or, as they should have been known, “Michelle Quadriguez.”) On night one, the ladies were willing to play together…but when Joey tried to reform the alliance after a few days, she immediately became a target.

That put Joey up on the block next to Paola, aka PowPow, aka The Queen of Caltoru. So who would be the first contestant sent home in Big Brother‘s 16th season? Well, the results are in…

Throwback Thursday: What's the best episode of 'Boy Meets World'?

Girl Meets World–which premiered on Disney Channel this past week–could really be dubbed a permanent ’90s Throwback Thursday (that’s technically airing on Fridays). In honor of this week’s Throwback Thursday, let’s hash out a very specific, very ’90s question: What is the all-time best episode of Boy Meets World?

As is the case with long-running shows (Boy Meets World aired from 1993 to 2000), there are a ton of options, and it’s a bit of a tough call. Do you go with one early in the series’ run that gave us an iconic moment (like, say, when Topanga kissed Cory up against the lockers), or a past-its-prime contender that reminded fans of the glory days (that would be “Seven the Hard Way,” a.k.a the episode with Plays With Squirrels)?

Or do you pick an episode that had a super-significant moment, but actually wasn’t all that great of an episode (cough, Cory and Topanga’s wedding, cough)? And let’s not forget about episodes with all-time perfect catchphrases, but a plot that wasn’t particularly memorable–looking at you, “Un-dah-pants episode.”

Clearly, there’s a lot to consider. With that said, here are a couple of finalists: READ FULL STORY

Video: Every time Bob says 'oh my god' on 'Bob's Burgers'

Besides the ability to make great puns about hamburgers, Bob Belcher doesn’t have much going for him. His rent is high, his kids are rambunctious and insufferable, and something seems to go wrong every week. And yet, Bob faces the world with the same stoic cry: “Oh my god!”

The Huffington Post has collected all of Bob’s outbursts from Bob’s Burgers into one glorious supercut, and the range of emotion from H. Jon Benjamin is pretty incredible–he nails the subtle difference between the “I drank from a lizard’s butt” oh my god and the  “we’re screwed, we’re screwed, we’re really, really, really screwed” oh my god.
