Kanye West doesn’t have the best history with airports: He’s been arrested twice, once in 2008 and another time in 2013, for getting in altercations with photographers at LAX. But in a clip TMZ obtained from a failed 2010 reality pilot about West’s travel agent, the rapper claims he likes being in airports—he just has to have a few strategies for dealing with the people in them.

Game of Thrones is the latest fictional show to get the reality treatment — well, sort of. Tonight, Bravo premieres Game of Crowns, a reality show that sounds suspiciously like the HBO fantasy drama but is really about pageant ladies vying for the winning tiara. Which, you know, could get as dangerous as Game of Thrones.
This isn’t the first time a fictional show has spawned a similar-sounding reality show. MTV released Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County in 2004 after seeing how successful the fictional The O.C. was; Bravo did something similar when they launched The Real Housewives in 2006, two years after ABC drama Desperate Housewives premiered. But how similar are these reality shows to their fictional parents?
In the first five minutes of The Leftovers, Justin Theroux’s character jogs along the road when he spots a dog in the middle of the street and stops running to kneel down and pet the friendly pup. Aw, we say, what a sweet moment. Then, within seconds, boom: Someone shoots the dog dead. Thanks, HBO.
TV shows love killing dogs: There’s that Leftovers dog-murder that turns into a dog mass murder at the pilot’s end, there’s Frank Underwood strangling a hurt dog to its death in the House of Cards pilot, there’s Family Guy‘s Brian. To showrunners, dogs are just objects that prove a point about a character or a situation. To dog-lovers, these deaths are enough to start a full-fledged sobfest.
After opting out of his contract with the Miami Heat, LeBron James has a big decision to make. And luckily for him, Seth Meyers has an offer he can’t (but probably will) refuse.
On Late Night with Seth Meyers, Meyers and his team put together a rather compelling argument for James to take his talents to New York, but not in the way you’re thinking. Meyers isn’t recruiting James to the New York Knicks. Nope: Meyers thinks James’ talents are better suited for an office setting that offers him a computer, a tape dispenser, access to tons of electrical outlets, and eight different kinds of milk to keep his bones strong. Not to mention that the Late Night office has “heat, calves, and [nail] clippers.” So really, is it all that different from the basketball world?
Finding yourself using the balding old man emoji to incorporate George Constanza into text conversations? You won’t have to much longer: The guys behind the Seinfeld Current Day Twitter account will soon be debuting a set of 42 Seinfeld emoji, including pictographs of Constanza, Seinfeld, and the rest of the gang—plus Junior Mints, of course.
As much as it’s always sunny in Philadelphia, you might be surprised to learn that it’s also always sunny in Moscow. Well, sort of.
Philadelphia’s City Paper has discovered that there is a Russian knockoff of the hit American show It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which is titled—you guessed it—It’s Always Sunny in Moscow. The Russian take on the show premiered on May 12 and has reportedly aired 16 episodes, drawing inspiration from the first three seasons of the American show. City Paper used Google Translate on the official page of the TNT network to learn a little bit more about the show. For example, its description starts: “Strong friendship, true love, idealism, nobility and dignity, humility and kindness—all this has nothing to do with the heroes of the series ‘In Moscow always sunny.'” READ FULL STORY
Cristiano Ronaldo is great and all, but soccer commentator Ian Darke is the real star of the World Cup. In fact, he’s so well-spoken that Sports Illustrated noticed some of his most eloquent comments are indistinguishable from Charles Dickens’ own words. Example: “A great big bacon sandwich, dripping with fat.” Guess who?
Take SI’s quiz to find out how well you really know your Dickens (or your Darke), and catch the latest World Cup game today at 4 p.m. ET when Germany plays Brazil.

And for Divergent fans, this week is all about Four. Then again, isn’t every week?
Check out your pop culture schedule for the week:
One Tree Hill was a serious drama. It was about life and death and basketball and murder and high school and basketball and love and stalkers and brotherhood and basketball. (Plus, if the subject matter ever confused you and you found yourself doubting that the show was a drama, Chad Michael Murray looked like this 99 percent of the time.)
And like every good, very serious drama, One Tree Hill needed a villain. That villain materialized in the form of Dan Scott, the bad father-turned-murderer-turned-a-million-other-things, because this show seemed to never end and only got more ridiculous as time went on. But ironically enough, Dan Scott turned out to be one of the greatest television characters of all time—in an unintentionally comedic context. READ FULL STORY
