As is his yearly tradition, Will Ferrell filmed a Super Bowl commercial for Old Milwaukee beer that aired only in select markets. This year’s extra-tasty-kissy spot rivals GoDaddy’s Bar Refaeli-smooching-a-nerd ad for sure — instead of zeroing in too heavily on a ’70s-esque, tank-topped Ferrell macking on a stranger on a bus, the camera graciously pans out to highlight some of America’s finest canned brew. Watch it below. READ FULL STORY »

My overwhelming thought following tonight’s rippling terrain of pricey Super Bowl commercials was that Doritos missed a great cross-promotional opportunity by not joining forces with Calvin Klein. There’s always next year. Below, zip through a bunch of 2013′s most memorable — best AND worst! — Super Bowl ads. READ FULL STORY »
Yeah. It’s Super Bowl Sunday, America. And the finest, splashiest, nacho-cheesiest string of advertising in all the land’s about to begin. You can follow along with the hottest action of the day (not football) in the video player below — it’ll update after each quarter with the latest ads. And here’s a great guide to the commercials we already know we’ll see. In the meantime, let’s all chat in the comments here about which ones we love and which we loathe.
Ben & Jerry’s new 30 Rock flavor has arrived. Correction: Ben & Jerry’s new Liz Lemon flavor has arrived.
Ben & Jerry’s has revealed that its 30 Rock-themed flavor is actually greek frozen yogurt — Liz Lemon Greek Frozen Yogurt to be exact. B&J describes its new creation as a “lemony-blueberry-y flavor.” Although we are sure that Liz would appreciate the use of her name, we’re willing to bet she would’ve preferred something with a little bit more of a “night cheese” flavor.
The flavor will be available for your enjoyment this spring.
Fresh out of mead? No matter — come March, you’ll have a whole new libation to sip while playing your favorite Drinking Game of Thrones.
HBO announced today that it’s partnering with New York’s Brewery Ommegang to create a series of beers “that directly tie into themes, characters and nuances…of the medieval-like fantasy realm of Westeros and surrounding kingdoms,” according to a press release. Iron Throne Blonde Ale, the first beer in the series — beeries? – should be on shelves in time for Game of Thrones‘s third season premiere on March 31. 750ml bottles will sell for the suggested retail price of
one gold dragon $8.50, a pittance for any Lannister worth his salt.
This news shouldn’t come as a surprise to fans of either George R. R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire books or the HBO series it inspired. READ FULL STORY »
Lovers of bacon, Jack Daniel’s, and overall gluttony, rejoice! Epic Chef, the online spinoff series of the YouTube cooking show Epic Meal Time that pits professional chefs against one another, debuted today.
Because today’s challenge featured portion-challenged, double deep-fried, beer-battered breakfast items, it’s safe to expect a meal of even more epic proportions in the upcoming holiday special. In this exclusive clip, chef Shawn Dobbin and Gavin Mills are harassed by host Harley Morenstein and guest judges Kevin Pereira and Charles Phoenix for not prepping the food appropriately and for reading instructions off ingredient boxes. What happened to their holiday cheer?
And you thought Anthony Bourdain was uninhibited and Paula Deen was butter-happy.

How does Amanda Seyfried keep herself from feeling misérable while doing press? One word: booze.
During an appearance on the Late Show last night, the Les Mis star explained that while filming the musical, she and her castmates had to live “like monks” in order to protect their voices. That meant constant water guzzling, early bedtimes, and most importantly, no drinking. Now, though, all bets are off: “I’m pretty drunk,” she told David Letterman matter-of-factly when he asked if she’d had a tipple before coming on the show.
Wait, seriously? Yes — as their chat continued, it seemed pretty apparent that Seyfried was, in fact, pretty tipsy. When you’re that tiny and down three glasses of whiskey, the alcohol’s effects have to be fairly strong.
After reading Pete Wells’ scathing — and hilarious — review of Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar in The New York Times, EWers Denise Warner, Erin Strecker, and Lanford Beard jumped at the chance for a night in Flavor Town. So was it really as bad as Wells’ made it out to be? Well read our post-dinner conversation and watch our reactions to some of the food below! READ FULL STORY »
Most mash-up videos that promise “every [insert line/action/moment here]” from a given television show usually have enough time to provide at least a little context for the lines, actions, or moments that are getting singled out. But when your goal is to feature every act of drinking ever on AMC’s Mad Men, it’s apparently best to crank up the zippy jazz and keep things moving as fast as possible. Check it out below and see what we mean: READ FULL STORY »
The California sun is like a mythical creature that sucks the soul out of you. And after three hours on an outdoor red carpet and another three hours sitting through a largely predictable Emmy ceremony, the celebs and all their friends were ready for a little fun last night. EW hit up two of the hottest spots in town: Fox’s post-Emmys soirée and the legendary HBO afterparty.
First stop: Fox post-Emmys bash, held at Soleto
Located just minutes from the site of the Emmys — but a trek still worthy of a car ride, especially in heels — word is that this Fox bash was the first major event to be held at Soleto, a 3,000+ square foot space that opened this summer. By day it’s a pizza bar; by night, it’s a swanky maze of a venue that provided a nice mix of larger open spaces and slightly darkened corners for more intimate socializing. Spotted in a cranny? The pint-sized half of Modern Family‘s cast, who were all generally spotted in pairs. There was no breaking up that Emmy-adorned family. READ FULL STORY »
