Another Thursday means another all-new 30 Rock, and today, my fellow PopWatchers, you become men. Or something like that. In “Today You Are a Man” Liz Lemon’s incompetent agent, Simon, returned to tell her that her contract was about to expire. Jack had sent a new one for her to sign, but Lemon decided it was time to negotiate with the big boys. With help from Jack Donaghy’s own self-help tapes, Liz set out to get that 5 percent merchandising she deserves. What could possibly go wrong? READ FULL STORY
Tag: Not Jon Hamm (31-40 of 174)
We’ve got a first look from an upcoming episode of Two and a Half Men episode airing Monday, Feb. 13 at 9 p.m. ET on CBS. Exclusive pics ahead of Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer flailing around in the wet Malibu sands (a word pairing that never fails to remind me of Saved by the Bell). But you might think they’re “hottttttt.” Who knows what you like? READ FULL STORY
Last night we were treated to not one, but two all-new episodes of 30 Rock. Hooray! In lieu of your traditional 3o Rock recap, I’ve opted to present you with the top 10 lines from both “People Are Idiots Three” and “The Ballad of Kenneth Parcell.” Try not to be too upset, and just focus on the gems that the 30 Rock writers give us each week.

Mark Wahlberg once again tries to clear up his 9/11 statement: 'I was a little out of line with my wording'
Mark Wahlberg appeared on a morning talk show on New York City’s WPLJ on Friday to once again try and set the record straight regarding the controversial remarks he made to Men’s Journal regarding the 9/11 attacks. The Contraband star told the magazine, “If I was on that plane with my kids, it wouldn’t have went down like it did. There would have been a lot of blood in that first-class cabin and then me saying, ‘Okay, we’re going to land somewhere safely, don’t worry.’” The outlandish statement immediately sparked an uproar, in which everyone collectively reacted, “What?! No. Not you, Mark Wahlberg.”
On Wednesday the actor issued an apology about the controversial statement, telling People, “To suggest I would have done anything differently than the passengers on that plane was irresponsible. I deeply apologize to the families of the victims that my answer came off as insensitive. It was certainly not my intention.” According to the New York Post, during his time on the Scott and Todd morning show, Wahlberg reiterated, “I was a little out of line with my wording and I didn’t take in to consideration how other people would respond to it or be affected by it.”
I have to admit that the second episode of season 6 was a little underwhelming compared to the stellar premiere. Still, have I mentioned I freaking love this show? In case you missed the memo, I do. And sadly, I think it’s because Liz Lemon and I are essentially the same person. Yeah, I just admitted that. And John Francis Donaghy is totally in my head reminding me what a terrible person I am.
Anyway, we finally met Liz’s new boyfriend, Criss. That’s Criss with no H and two S’s. They were clearly meant for each other because they had a completely serious conversation about Tivo noises. (Boop boop! Bom bom.) They were celebrating their three-month anniversary of being together, and the two-week anniversary of Liz going to the bathroom with Criss in the apartment. Very important milestones! Criss documented the occasion by giving Liz the same gender-neutral doll, Terry, she had as a child. He/she came complete with his/her baseball glove and baby! Also, it must be noted that Terry was dressed exactly like present-day Liz Lemon. Probably not a coincidence. READ FULL STORY
Grab your Big Carls, or heck, just drink straight from the wine bottle! I won’t judge, because I’m way too excited that Cougar Town—which has been living in TV-scheduling limbo—is finally returning to the primetime lineup. That’s right, ABC officially confirmed that our favorite cul-de-sac crew will be back on Tuesday, Feb. 14, at 8:30 p.m. It’s as if the powers that be knew my Valentine’s Day would be totally lame otherwise!
According to South Park, comic actor Rob Schneider has played an animal, a woman, a carrot, and a stapler. And who could forget his rousing turn in Da Derp Dee Derp Da Teetley Derpee Derpree Dumb? (For the record, Schneider has only played an animal and a woman, so far. Though Da Derp Dee Derp… seems like it has the potential to be a hit, no?)
Now the SNL vet/frequent Adam Sandler collaborator has added another title to his resume: Newlywed OCD Landscape Architect Who Is Also Actually Kinda Racist And Will Accidentally Sexually Harass Your Grandmother. (Stapler doesn’t sound so bad now, does it?) READ FULL STORY
I’m so glad 30 Rock is back. As a matter of fact, it might just be the highlight of my year, and I realize it’s only January. But it’s been way too long since I last had a nice dose of Liz Lemon & Co. (Although, I will admit that it feels weird to watch 30 Rock at 8 p.m. instead of the noticeably absent Community. It’s not cheating, guys. I love both!) Anyway, let’s get down to the important stuff and chat about “Dance Like Nobody’s Watching!”
Kenneth was convinced the world was ending tomorrow. (I guess if you’re not reading this because the world no longer exists, the joke’s on us!) He was excited to go to heaven and receive his reward: 72 virgin…margaritas sans salt. Lemon, who was in a surprisingly good mood, gave Kenneth some valuable advice for his supposed last day on the great blue marble she calls Earth. “Work like you don’t need the money. Love like you’ve never been hurt. Dance like nobody’s watching. Enjoy these Satchel Paige brand tampons.” So Kenneth decided to grab life by the horns and complete all his dream chores. And when the world didn’t end, Pete decided to take a very disappointed Kenneth to see the ocean for the first time. But keep your chin up, Kenneth. 2012 has only just begun. There’s plenty of time for the world to end! READ FULL STORY
Seems like everyone, even Newsweek magazine, wants a piece of Jon Hamm.
Newsweek editor Tina Brown announced today that in promotion for Mad Men’s fifth season premiere on March 25 (!), the magazine would be going Mad. (Well, not Mad.) Specifically, the entire publication would revert back to its 1960s design — including the advertisements.
Brown told Ad Age, “Newsweek was very much on the cultural forefront at the time of the show. It covered the events that are so much of the background for the show’s drama — the burgeoning civil rights movement, the women’s rights movement, the Vietnam War. That was Newsweek‘s cutting-edge beat and its flourishing journalistic subject. So it seemed like a wonderful marriage in a sense to take that and apply it to the magazine, to make the magazine an homage to the period.” READ FULL STORY
