Golden Globes: Who will win in the TV categories? Polls!

Just because most people don’t do a Golden Globes pool doesn’t mean you can’t predict if Homeland will build on its Emmy domination. Let’s take the 11 TV categories to a vote. Remember, this is who you think will win, not necessarily who you want to win.  READ FULL STORY

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler: The BFF duo's 11 best onscreen moments

Can anything get in the way of Lincoln‘s momentum? Could Smash possibly upset the Best TV Show — Comedy or Musical category? Who cares! The real reason to watch the Golden Globes this Sunday is to see three glorious hours of Tina Fey and Amy Poehler doing what they do best: Hanging out together and making us laugh.

Ever since meeting in an improv class nearly 20 years ago — back when Tina “had only recently learned that you can pluck your eyebrows” and Amy got $15 dye jobs that made her hair “the color of white lined paper” — Pohler and Fey have enjoyed a best-friendship that’s the envy of non-Tinas and Amys everywhere. (2012′s Night of Too Many Stars even auctioned off the chance to be the pair’s third BFF for the night; the winner, predictably, had an amazing time.) Naturally, the pair frequently work together onscreen — proving that as funny as they are individually, Amy and Tina are better together.

So here’s a chronological list of their greatest clips — starting with one of SNL‘s best commercial parodies: READ FULL STORY

Rashida Jones reveals her turn-ons in '7 Minutes in Heaven' -- VIDEO

Now here’s some NBC synergy we can get behind. Parks and Recreation star Rashida Jones recently stepped into a cramped closet with Saturday Night Live writer Mike O’Brien for a new episode of O’Brien’s web series, 7 Minutes in Heaven. Their wine-fueled conversation covered everything from what makes Jones either “horny” or “super horny,” why she’s got some confusing feelings about Michael Jackson’s Off the Wall, and what it would be like if the actress were a “homely girl” who became a smoking hottie by putting her hair up and donning a pair of glasses. Eat your heart out, Kitty Sanchez.

Trust me, you’re in for a ride:

Fan-made 'Parks and Recreation' movie trailer seeks Li'l Sebastian killer -- VIDEO

“A small Indiana town is flipped upside down when their beloved hero goes missing.”

That’s the logline for a fan-made Parks and Recreation movie trailer, which uses clips from various episodes to turn the death of everyone’s favorite miniature horse, Li’l Sebastian, into a thriller. It’s funnier than the Alex Cross trailer (intentionally!). Watch it below. READ FULL STORY

'Parks and Rec': Leslie's 5 Best Lines from 'Pawnee Commons'

Leave it to Eagleton to stir up the crazy in Leslie Knope.

Last night’s episode of Parks and Recreation rekindled the “blood feud” between Pawnee and neighboring Eagleton when an Eagletonian architect offered to design Pawnee’s new park. The guy’s nice as can be and extremely well-qualified, but Leslie’s knee-jerk derision threatens to thwart the whole plan — which happens to be pro bono. The situation further deteriorates when a couple of pranksters from Eagleton make a mockery of Pawnee’s citizens. As you can imagine, Leslie’s vitriol makes for some of the more memorable moments.

“In 1984 a tornado struck Pawnee. When we asked Eagleton for help they claimed they weren’t home. An entire town claimed they weren’t home.”

'Parks and Rec' cast plays 'Hollywood Squares' -- VIDEO

I never thought of Nick Offerman as the game-show host type. (Rob Lowe, on the other hand…)

Yet it’s the mock-serious Offerman, in full Ron Swanson mode, channeling Hollywood Squares greats Peter Marshall and Tom Bergeron by hosting a version of the game for GQ‘s Men of the Year issue. Instead of keeping to the traditional format and asking true/false or multiple choice questions, Offerman challenged his cast with straight-foward pop-culture trivia.

Watch the video below to hear Aziz Ansari’s synopsis of 50 Shades of Grey and Chris Pratt’s lyrics to Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.” My only complaint is that the video is a minute too short. READ FULL STORY

Bacon-scented shaving cream is perfect present for Ron Swanson -- also a real thing

Bacon-scented-shaving-cream_510x317.jpg

Sorry, Honor — this product truly deserves to top Ron Swanson’s Pyramid of Greatness.

Yes, shaving cream that smells like rich, smoky pork actually exists. Here’s how the press release describes it: “J&D’s Bacon Shaving Cream™ is proudly Made in America and is the highest quality meat-scented shaving cream on the market today… It is best used after a hot shower or before an important date with someone you may want to spend the rest of your life with.”

As EW.com photo guru Jef Castro says, “That MUST cause break-outs. Or obesity.” Absolutely — but is it kosher? I’ll let you know as soon as I hear back from the product’s creators, “Bacontrepreneurs” Justin and Dave.

These guys also sell a sriracha-flavored lip balm. Wearing it, apparently, is “like making out with some tasty napalm.”

Congratulations, world: I have finally been rendered speechless. Ooo, accidental bacon pun!

'Parks and Rec': The 5 best moments from 'Ben's Parents'

Last week’s episode of Parks and Recreation, in which Ben finally proposed to Leslie, set the bar pretty high — some might say impossibly high — so last night the writers stepped up and let loose with some top-shelf material. We met Ben’s sparring, divorced, insufferable parents (played by Glenne Headly and Jonathan Banks) and watched Chris have a total, happy-sad mental breakdown (“It’s like a perfect storm of emotions!”). The team even brought back the scene-stealer (and arguably the show’s most consistently funny character) Jean-Ralphio, Tom’s flamboyant cad of a business partner. With so many memorable moments, it’s hard to narrow down the episode’s highlights… but here goes.
