'Cougar Town': Aloha means hello and goodbye. How dumb is that?

Aloha from “We will never stop mocking the title…Cougar Town!” Here’s the good news: ABC treated us with a special, hour-long episode of CT set in Hawaii! The bad news: It was the season finale. Our favorite cul-de-sac crew will not return until November. (I’ll pause for you to pound some grape in an effort to deal with the news….) In the meantime, we’ve got a lot to cover. Let’s dive right in. READ FULL STORY

'Cougar Town': Fear the chalk children

Much like the beginning of last week’s episode of We Should Have Live Cougars On Cougar Town, Travis was still hanging out in the dark mourning the loss of Kirsten. He hadn’t even been going to college. It was a Travisty. (See what I did there?) But breakups are hard. It took Jules a year to bounce back after she and Bobby split up, and it was the worst weekend of Bobby’s life.

Travis finally admitted that college might not be right for him after he was caught lying about being on spring break. So Jules gave him an ultimatum: Go back to college or move out and get a job. Travis knew his mom’s new tough love attitude wasn’t really her, despite her claim that she “tosses asses.” But who was she kidding? She couldn’t even let her son eat stale chips. Sure enough, Jules’ tough-love act didn’t last for long. Instead, she and Travis had a kite-flying, sandcastle-building day at the beach.

Gwyneth Paltrow 'do[es] not have time to bathe,' may have hidden a surprise in your spaghetti

Love Gwyneth Paltrow? Loathe her? Either way, you’ll probably have something to say about the star’s picture on the cover of Bon Appétit‘s June issue. In it, the actress-slash-singer-slash-lifestyle guru is smiling and biting her lower lip in a manner that’s either charmingly mischievous or slightly creepy; I haven’t quite decided which camp I’m in yet. It looks like she might have concealed some sort of surprise in that bowl of spaghetti — an annotated version of the dedication in her new cookbook? A tiny umbrella? A microscopic Mary Todd Lincoln costume?

In the accompanying interview, Gwyneth discusses her love of cooking and shuts down speculation that she’s developing her own food magazine. “Don’t know how that rumor got into the papers,” she tells Bon Appétit. “It could not be further from the truth. I literally do not have time to bathe, let alone start a magazine.” Somehow, Gwynnie, we doubt the veracity of that last part… though if it is true, we’re pretty envious of your ability to look fabulous despite secretly being covered in filth.

Think you’ll make an effort to purchase this magazine, PopWatchers?

Rob Lowe's got his fingers on a Butterfingers movie

Now, it’s scary how many Butterfingers I could eat in one sitting, but I certainly wouldn’t expect anyone to make a horror movie about the peanut butter-y candies. But, apparently, someone has. In fact, “the modern master of psychological terror” has. That’s right: Rob Lowe has directed Butterfinger the 13th, the “first-ever film produced not by a major studio or filmmaker, but by one of America’s iconic candy brands,” according to the candy company. (Butterfinger sees your Candy Land adaptation, Universal, and bypasses you one further!) No, this isn’t the subject of a Parks and Recreation episode: Lowe really has directed a film for Butterfingers, according to his publicist. Specifically, the film is a 25-minute-long comedy-horror, complete with the tagline, “You can’t scream with your mouth full.” So not only does Lowe have eclectic tastes when it comes to his career (jumping from brat pack flicks to Tommy Boy to The West Wing to Brothers & Sisters to Parks and Recreation to buying Miramax), but he also has good taste when it comes to candy. See the trailer after the jump — the film will be available on Facebook Oct. 13. READ FULL STORY

'Bridesmaids' features a great drunk performance from Kristen Wiig, but what actor plays boozy best?

“I’m ready to paaaar-tyyyyyyy!” By now you’ve probably seen the hilarious trailer for Bridesmaids and the moment in which “Maid of Dis-honor” Kristen Wiig, in an attempt to calm her nerves on an airplane, gets completely sauced in the process. As far as all-time drunk performances in a comedy go, this one ranks right up there with Dudley Moore in Arthur and Ari Graynor in Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist.

While, unfortunately, you’ll still have to wait one more day to see said scene in the top-notch comedy in theaters, there’s another drunk moment to hold you over until then. Tonight’s episode of Parks and Recreation provides one of the funniest moments of the season — if not, the series — when Tom (Aziz Ansari) gets the gang hammered on his new alcoholic concoction “Snake Juice.” READ FULL STORY

The Host's Leaderboard: Tom Bergeron on tequila, Kirstie's total body transformation, and swearing

Welcome to a special tequila-drenched episode of “The Host’s Leaderboard,” my weekly chat with Dancing With the Stars host Tom Bergeron. We’re so wasted!

On week 8, Tom gifts us with a Walter Brennan reference, reminds us of a Karate Kid/DWTS plot connection, SWEARS because the internet is not the same as liiiiiiive TV, and plugs his book! Okay, Romeo. I’m already on the edge of my seat for Tom’s expert mime exhibition, tentatively scheduled for the last episode EVER.

Press the “play” triangle to hear my imaginary friend in all his alternate-universe glory!

'Cougar Town': The Cobbs can get through anything!

The headline says it all. The Cobbs can get through anything! I know you’re (probably) not a Cobb, but I have faith you can make it through this recap. So let’s chat “sorry, we still cringe at the title” Cougar Town.

Kirsten was officially planning her move to Chicago. Since locking her to a pipe with a chain was not a valid option, Travis furthered his plan to propose with his great-grandmother’s ring. I must note the rejected plans: 1) Skipping the ring altogether and putting a baby in her. 2) Pimp-whacking her over the head. Yeah, a proposal was really his only option. READ FULL STORY

Is Soul Daddy really 'America's Next Great Restaurant'? The EW Review

One of the things that always made me resentful at shows like Top Chef is the fact that as the lowly viewer, I was never offered the privilege of tasting the winning dishes which so often look succulent and mouth-watering. Though America’s Next Great Restaurant, which concluded its finale on Sunday, is in the same vein as cooking shows like my beloved Top Chef, ANGR had a different goal. Find a panel of experienced restauranteurs and celebrity chefs, introduce them to a bunch of people who like to cook, and see if you can produce a new chain restaurant capable of achieving Chipotle-level success.  READ FULL STORY

Royal wedding cake is round... frustrating those who think the corners taste best

Let them eat cake! Or something. William and Kate are enjoying two royal wedding cakes today: this eight-tiered delight topped by their new royal cipher; and a chocolate-cookie cake specially requested by the groom. Am I disqualified from discussing the Joseph Lambeth cake technique and the 900 floral touches because I can’t look at the cake and not wonder what The Office‘s Deangelo Vickers would do if he got within an arm’s length of it. Yes? Good. “Why did I just do that? It’s not even that good! I had cake for lunch!… No!” READ FULL STORY

'Parks and Rec': Ron Swanson's 'turkey burger' is now a reality, proves he needs to write a (very unhealthy) cookbook.

Every gross-yet-delicious-sounding food item Ron Swanson has mentioned on Parks and Recreation has made my mouth water in fatty shame. Last week’s turkey burger (a fried turkey leg inside of a grilled hamburger) was no exception.

Today, I learned food dreams come true: The people at eater.com (via HuffPo) have created such a concoction! They simply took a fried, 1 lb+ turkey leg and smashed it the middle of 5 lbs of ground beef, stuck it in the oven, and, once cooked and grilled, placed it between a round loaf of bread. That’s right: over six pounds of food. READ FULL STORY
