'Louie' destroys me, and I can't get enough

What is your damage, Louie? Every time I watch you, I become simultaneously depressed about the state of the world/my life and thrilled that such an accurate depiction of this terrible truth is on television. Your flawlessness drives me crazy. In the immortal words of Angela Chase, “You’re so beautiful. It hurts to look at you.” You’re just too good. That is your damage. And damn you for making me watch Leno! READ FULL STORY

'Anger Management' gets 90-episode run on FX. What else could you do with 45 hours?

Wednesday’s news that FX’s Charlie Sheen vehicle of destruction Anger Management will produce 90 more episodes over the next two years has prompted us to think short and hard about how else we could piss away FORTY-FIVE HOURS of our one life on this earth. Presenting…

4 or 5 Alternative Uses of 45 Hours

1. Construct, then float along Laziest River
2. Interact with other humans
3. Finally write novel (50 Shades of I Don’t Give a F—)
4. Watch The Expendables 2 26.2 times, instead of running a marathon
5. ANYTHING. Literally anything else! Forty-five hours!!!

What’s your suggestion? Just comment with the first thing you think of. Keep it clean!

Lauren Conrad: What is your damage?

Former Hills star and current hair role model Lauren Conrad posted a video tutorial showing viewers how to cut the spines off of books, glue them to a box, and then store non-book items in that box. She used seemingly brand new copies of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events. (Ooh, foreshadowing!) This turned out to be a FATAL ERROR — a bunch of book purists freaked out, the clip went viral, and LC removed the video all within a few hours Wednesday night. I know I’ll remember where I was when it happened for the rest of my life. Ha, no.

Lemony Snicket himself commented on Lauren’s peculiar failure to Slate: “It has always been my belief that people who spend too much time with my work end up as lost souls, drained of reason, who lead lives of raving emptiness and occasional lunatic violence. What a relief it is to see this documented.”

Exactly. So why’d she have to take it down?

Ben on 'The Bachelor' is Alfalfa from 'Little Rascals'

So said EW.com reader “jr” on today’s episode recap. Good work, gumshoe!

Do you think the original Alfalfa (Carl Switzer) would be caught dead clunking out a shaky rendition of David Gray’s “This Year’s Love” on the piano? Is this a rhetorical question?

'Two and a Half Men': Stormy Valentine's Day episode -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS

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

British people demand refund for 'The Artist' because it's a silent movie

The Artist has been praised for being a charming delight and condemned for being a charming trifle. But there’s one thing everyone can agree on: It’s a silent movie. Like, the kind without dialogue. Apparently, that information escaped a few moviegoers in Liverpool. As reported by The Telegraph, the Odeon Liverpool One theater received several complaints from people who saw the movie without realizing it would not have any diegetic sound.

Clearly unmoved by the film’s loving reverence for the silent era, those movie-ogres then received their money back. Between this and the “Drive was not the sequel to Fast Five I was promised!” lawsuit, this feels like a real moment for theater oafs. Now I wish we’d all asked for our money back after seeing Thor, since we were promised a movie and got a commercial for another movie. Wait, that argument works for every Hollywood movie! We’ve beaten the system, gang.

'Finding Bigfoot,' a real show, premieres Sunday Jan. 1

A new season (?!?!) of Finding Bigfoot premieres Sunday, Jan. 1, at 10 p.m. ET on Animal Planet, and I just might tune in to witness the stunning ineptitude of the “expert team of true believers” in person.

Frankly I cannot fathom why it’s taken them so long to find me, considering I moved to the West Coast SIX MONTHS AGO and have been dying to get discovered! Sometimes I even leave my giant sneakers outside the door in my Melrose Waste of Space apartment complex. How have the true believers not picked up on their stench and size? Yoo-hoo! Experts! I am RIGHT HERE.

Vote in the important poll below…. if you can find it.

That last one is coming soon to EW.com whether you like it or not!
