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.

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 »
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.

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 »
Today, ‘Cake Boss’ Buddy Valastro presented a seriously detailed creation for Chevrolet at the New York International Auto Show. That’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon star Bumblebee straddling a Chevy Camaro. We’ll find out how Buddy pulled it off — not to mention transported it — on the June 20 episode of TLC’s Cake Boss. That’s some nice integrated marketing for the Michael Bay film, which opens July 1. Check out another shot, with pyrotechnics (natch), below. READ FULL STORY »
Jersey Shore is a TV show about drunk man-children and pugnacious girl-women who make poor life choices loudly. Florence is the historic city which was once home to some of the greatest artistic minds in the human race: Leonardo da Vinci, Michelango, Raphael, Donatello, and lesser artists whose names are lost to history largely because they never became Ninja Turtles. The notion of MTV filming a season of Shore in the city is a perfect combination of the sacred and the profane, roughly comparable to putting a Whoopee Cushion on a throne that belongs to the Pope. But recent reports indicate that the upcoming season of the smush-tastic series will indeed film in Florence. Unfortunately, the locals don’t seem too welcoming to Snooki & Co.: According to the New York Post, Florence Mayor Matteo Renzi told Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera that he would only allow the show to film in Florence if they followed certain restrictions. These include: READ FULL STORY »
Have you seen the new Diet Pepsi commercial starring Sofia Vergara in a swimsuit? Got your attention now! Watch it below. She’s on a beach and thirsty. There’s a long line at the drink stand, so she tweets that she’s at the pier… and just saw David Beckham! Everyone in line follows her on Twitter and goes running (just go with it), totally missing the magnificent view of her walking from behind (her wrap is sheer). She returns to her spot, thirst quenched, and the kicker: David Beckham retrieves a soccer ball that has rolled near her and asks, “What’s going on over there?” That’s when she gets the look on her face pictured. I had a similar one on mine watching the ad: Why isn’t David Beckham shirtless? He’s on a beach. Playing soccer. It’s not gratuitous. Was it his tattoos?
Revel in the glory of motherhood, nerds. Tina Fey has a bun in the oven. But how will the Bossypants author’s recently announced pregnancy affect our pal Liz Lemon? The folks at 30 Rock have yet to reveal if or how Fey’s news will affect the show, but when you really think about it, it doesn’t really matter: Lemon has vaguely resembled a pregnant woman for the last five years (except for the minor detail of getting her period for 61 straight days). While you might be wondering how Fey can work her bundle of joy into next season’s plot, here’s a quick list of ways her pregnancy won’t change a thing, as it already fits in with Lemon’s trademarked quirks:
• Whether she’s wearing it as a joke or not, the slanket aficionado likes her bi-curious fashion choices and DIY finds (Duane Reade bags as underwear) on the larger side, which gives Fey infinite room to hide a growing belly and prevent any dirty looks from that office gossip Brian Williams.
