Tuesday marks the release of Ian Edwards‘ new comedy album 100% Half-Assed. It not only marks the first album for Edwards, a stand-up veteran, but it is also the first release on Team Coco Records, the new comedy label launched by Conan O’Brien. It’s the latest in a long line of collaborations between Edwards (who also wrote for 2 Broke Girls last season) and O’Brien. “I think I’m the only stand-up who has been on Conan’s show every time,” says Edwards, who made his debut on the old Late Night show back in 2007. “I did it when he was in New York, and then I did it when he had The Tonight Show, and I’ve done it on TBS. Conan always just wants you to be yourself. So why not go with the people who allow you to represent myself the way I really am?” READ FULL STORY

Think you know who “A” could be? We do.
“A,” the scheming character on ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars, has manipulated the Liars, caused injuries, and is an all-around terrible person. Since the show launched in 2010, multiple characters have come out as “A” helpers — Mona, Toby, Lucas — but none have revealed themselves to be Uber “A,” the real bad guy (or girl!) who controls all the “A” minions. But we have some ideas. READ FULL STORY
If you thought June would be your time to take a little pop culture break and maybe binge a few shows you’d never gotten to start, we’ve got some bad news: There’s no time for that. Between finales of some of HBO’s strongest shows — Veep and Game of Thrones — award shows, new books, albums, and movies, there’s very little time for you to play catch-up. So maybe save that for next week? Although, we make no promises that you’ll have time.
Check out your pop culture calendar for this week: READ FULL STORY
Within seconds of the Power’s opening credits, the viewer knows exactly what the series is about. Like 50 Cent’s hit album, it’s largely about how to Get Rich or Die Tryin,’ with gratuitous shots of expensive watches, expansive penthouse apartments, and pricey red-bottomed Louboutin shoes. Well, specifically, Power is about James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Mary Jane alum Omari Hardwick), a big-time New York City drug dealer who opens a hot, high-end nightclub as a front to hide his dirty drug money.

If you name a character Olive Snook, she’s going to seem pretty flat. And amid the glittering chaos of Pushing Daisies, it would have been easy for Olive to spend the entire series as a one-off joke. She’s a comically inept waitress with a crush on her boss, Ned. She has a high, slightly irritating voice, and she usually misses the point of jokes. But then Kristin Chenoweth gets to sing.

Any fan of Bravo’s long-running Housewives franchise knows the formula for deliciously dramatic reality television: simply assemble a group of fame-hungry women with big egos, bigger hair, and (biggest of all) huge credit card statements. But after hitting cities including Atlanta, New York, and Beverly Hills, it seems like this country is pretty well covered — which makes Bravo’s move across the Atlantic to London a no-brainer. Though the network’s new series, Ladies of London, isn’t officially part of the Housewives franchise, it may as well be. After all, declares one well-dressed cast member in the show’s opener, “This is the big league: this is London.” READ FULL STORY
Who is Julia Collins? She’s the most successful woman in the history of Jeopardy! — and unfortunately, her time on the show has come to an end.
Collins lost during her 21st appearance, which aired Monday, after betting everything in Final Jeopardy and answering the question incorrectly. The clue that stumped her? “The New England writer who in 1999 became the last person to win an Oscar for adapting his own novel as a screenplay.” The correct answer: “Who is John Irving?” (Collins guessed Michael Chabon instead.)
Collins lost to Brian Loughnane — but walked away from the show with a total of $428,100 and 20 victories. For those of you keeping count, that officially puts her ahead of David Madden and firmly in the second place spot for most consecutive wins, behind only Ken Jennings. See the Final Jeopardy question that finally defeated her in the video below. READ FULL STORY

I hope you enjoyed night one of our special two-night Bachelorette event. Night two airs tonight in our regular Monday primetime slot. This week we were still at the mansion but all the dates were just north of LA up in the town of Santa Barbara. Nick got the first one-on-one date. Andi was impressed by Nick and was really looking forward to their date. It’s really interesting to see these men melt into nervous little boys when they get around Andi. We saw it with Josh last week, and we now saw it with Nick. Is it just me, or does Andi seem to have deeper more meaningful conversations than many Bachelorettes have in the past? Nick and Andi shared an incredible evening. He easily got the rose but more importantly, got his first kiss.
The group date this week was easily one of Andi’s favorite dates of the entire season. To this day she’s still talking about her time with Boyz II Men. I have to say that they were awesome to work with and our entire crew enjoyed this day. We took over an open-air mall in the middle of Santa Barbara called Paseo Nuevo. The way it all worked is the Boyz put on a little show for the big crowd that showed up. By the way, a huge thanks to the thousands that took the afternoon off to show up and party with us. It was a phenomenal crowd and they were fired up. After the Boyz got done, our “boys” got up and sang so poorly that whales were congregating off the coast. One of my favorite parts of the day was standing offstage with the band while the guys made us all endure their rendition of “I’ll Make Love To You.” We were laughing so hard we could barely contain ourselves. Everybody had fun with it and it was a great experience. READ FULL STORY
