This show. Seriously, just when I was starting to worry they were stretching out the Nick-Jess drama too much… DAMN. As in, “Damn, that was hot.” But also as in, “Damn you, fish tank!” Before we get into it, SPOILER ALERT!!! We’re putting up tonight’s recap a little early, so look alive, non-East Coasters and DVR dilly-dalliers. For everyone else, let’s do this. READ FULL STORY »

You probably don’t remember, but New York was covered in snow the last time I put together the PopWatch Planner. (Sorry, y’all.) To the rest of the country: enjoy what I assume is wonderfully warm weather.
If you still need a little heat, just watch Jennifer Love Hewitt in the season premiere of The Client List. That, and other suggestions, after the jump.
Hello, Newbies. I am your host today while my colleague Lanford Beard takes a well-deserved overseas vacation.
This latest episode of New Girl, “TinFinity” (I’ll explain that odd title in a moment), had the roomies at each other’s throats a little more than usual. There was plenty of drama and heartfelt moments, but of course still plenty of room for New Girl’s brand of quirky, ridiculous comedy. And the fallout (read: hilarity) after the Kiss continued.
Now, about that title: The episode kicks off with Schmidt pronouncing that they are coming fast upon his and Nick’s 10-year anniversary as roommates. READ FULL STORY »
So… that Jess-Nick weirdness? That residue of kiss-related awkwardness? Not. Going. Anywhere. Though they seemed mostly back to normal at the end of the last ep, it’s clear this problem will not resolve itself so easily. They’re going to have to face it head-on — a reality they continue to admit and then panic moonwalk away from. As such, this week’s installment was bookended by oodles of sexual tension. We’ve got a handful of episodes before the finale, Newbies, so nothing is going to happen quickly, and we’re indefinite stuck in this sexual perdition — the No-Nail Zone, as it were. Just as well, as there were much bigger fish to fry last night — at least in Schmidt’s head… READ FULL STORY »
Rejoice, Newbies! Jess got her own douchebag jar! Well, technically it’s an Annoyance Bowl — which Nick finds much less satisfying, perhaps because of the sheer glee Jess displayed while putting money in the bowl — totally at odds with the intention of the bowl. Still, how did it take this long for Jess to get the bowl? The singing alone could have bought them all a nice dinner at Outback Steakhouse by now. But I digress… All the roommates’ quirks were on display last night. But only in Jess’s case did the story nearly end in murder… READ FULL STORY »
In this corner, daaaahhhhling, we have five-time Grammy winner (and 34-time nominee, whoa) Mariah Carey: the best selling female artist of all time, the custodian of a famous five-octave range, a lovable nut who doesn’t really exercise while wearing five-inch heels but does really flip out if photographed or filmed from her “bad” left side.
And in this corner, speaking in a fake British accent for some reason, there’s brash young upstart Nicki Minaj: a rapper/singer who once boasted of earning $50,000 for a guest verse even before her album was released, a wearer of assorted ridiculata, and the winner of zero Grammys so far, though she’s racked up four nominations since 2011.
Both had their claws out as soon as American Idol‘s season premiere began last night. READ FULL STORY »
Nickels. That’s the nickname given to Nick by his father Walt (Dennis Farina), who paid a visit last night. Well… Nickels and “Little Penis” (more on that later). It turns out that Nick’s dad is better than Nick at a lot of things — charming the pants off of people (sometimes even himself), feely cup, growing a luxurious mustache, and swindling Winston. But what Nick lacks in suave, he makes up for by not being a damn con man. And so we begin the tale of the demoralization of Nick Miller by the coward Walt Miller… READ FULL STORY »
Genial talk show host Jay Leno and aggressively odd rapper Nicki Minaj seem like they have approximately nothing in common. But on The Tonight Show yesterday, the two realized that they actually do share something: They’ve both been involved in high-profile celebrity feuds.
Yes, says Minaj, the animosity between her and fellow new American Idol judge Mariah Carey isn’t trumped up for the cameras: “It definitely isn’t a fake feud.” According to her, the fighting began as simple joking around before taking a turn for the real (maybe around the same time Nicki cursed out Mariah in North Carolina). “We’re both passionate, and both crazy, and we’re both, you know,” Minaj helpfully explained to Leno, adding, “and then sometimes it just goes ‘rawrr!’”
Race relations and swingers weekends: Two things New Girl probably shouldn’t have taken on. While I’m not arguing what happened with the roomies last night wasn’t believable, was it necessary Newbies? Most ridiculously, Schmidt took a cue from the Michael Scott Handbook and endeavored to be so inclusive he actually ended up coming off all kinds of racist. Even Winston’s attempt to exploit his friends’ naïveté backfired dreadfully — although with a spectacular Urban Uncle Remus tale along the way. And Nick ended this week’s ep alone and grumpy once again. At least one thing’s constant in this crazy, mixed-up world! Onward. READ FULL STORY »
