'American Horror Story' website warns YoureGoingToDieInThere.com. Check it out... at your own risk!

The website for the chilling new series American Horror Story is called YoureGoingToDieInThere.com. Sure, it doesn’t have quite the same easygoing panache as, say Facebook.com, and it sounds like it could also possibly be a thinly veiled threat from Tamar Braxton, but it’s still a pretty cool site.

Upon entering the site, visitors are informed they can “go behind closed doors to discover the secrets of the American Horror Story house” where you’ll find “artifacts of murder, lust, perversion, and betrayal.” (So, sorta just like your Sims house!) After a stop at the mailbox (you can sign up to have trinkets sent to you via email or snail mail to unlock parts of the website), you’ll be greeted by ghost children, Jessica Lange, and a man on fire who crawls up into the fireplace. Hey, you can’t say they didn’t warn you. This website is called YoureGoingToDieInThere.com, after all. READ FULL STORY

'Hawaii Five-0' season premiere: We got Bingo!

Hawaii Five-0 pulled out all the stops for its action-packed season 2 premiere last night, and those of you who remember the Hawaii Five-0 Bingo game Darren Franich introduced in season 1 will be happy to know we finally got Bingo.* See the card below. READ FULL STORY

PopWatch Confessional: What TV show do you like watching before bed?

I’ve never been a huge fan of going to sleep in complete silence, but I became particularly dependent on the sound of the television to lure me into sleep when I got a roommate who always fell asleep to Friends reruns. I should note that in a normal living situation, your roommate’s sleeping preferences wouldn’t particularly matter, but we shared a studio apartment and, thus, we slept almost directly next to one another.

When she moved out this summer, I continued the trend until the sound of Joey’s voice started to sound like crickets dancing on swinging rusty gates. (Months later, I’m still going through Friends detox.) Recently, Intervention has taken its place. Intense, I know. “Sleep with the angels”? No thanks. I have inner demons!

The problem? There are only 100 episodes of Intervention available on Netflix, it appears I have a little under 2 months to find a new show that I don’t mind giving less than my full attention. So I need suggestions!  READ FULL STORY

Could the REAL Gumby have robbed a 7-Eleven? (POLL)

Some weirdo in a Gumby costume tried to rob a 7-Eleven in San Diego. What a world, huh? After the jump, you can watch the video of him failing miserably and even donating 27 cents to the scene of this crime against everyone’s childhood after fumbling (presumably for a weapon).

I wonder if it makes me a terrible person that the things I’m most disappointed about are the complete absence of a Pokey suit for Gumby’s sidekick and the way Gumby’s costume is just split wide open in the back, hospital gown-style. Get it together, G. Commit to the costume or commit to the crime. Even the real Gumby wouldn’t have half-assed this so badly. READ FULL STORY

Donald Trump charges $10,000 for privilege of meeting Donald Trump

Fresh from a brief but memorable non-excursion into the quagmire of American politics, Celebrity Apprentice host and videogame legend Donald Trump has embarked on a speaking engagement in Australia. And according to a report by Australian website news.com.au, he’ll be hosting a “private, closed reception” reserved for people Trump refers to as “business leaders.” Specifically, business leaders who are willing to pay at least $10,000 for the chance to breathe the same air as The Donald. In a form letter, Trump describes this event not merely as a party, but as “a catalyst that can spark greater things — you’ll be considering the influence this experience can have on the course of the rest of your life.”

PopWatchers, how much would you pay to awkwardly sip extremely expensive cocktails with Donald Trump? Actually, what’s the highest sum you would pay to meet anyone? I think I’d pay $20,000 to have lunch with David Milch, but only if he promised to hypnotize me by talking about John From Cincinnati.

ABC's 'Take the Money and Run' premiere has me wondering where I could hide a briefcase of cash in the EW office

Probably in the bottom-right “fruit” door of the fridge. No one would, or should, ever go in there. Run! Run away! I am rich now!

Anyone else catch ABC’s series premiere of Take the Money and Run, which should really just be called Mindf—ing? Here’s what happens: Two people get a briefcase with $100,000 inside and an hour to hide it. Then some real investigators (who may access the pair’s phone records, GPS coordinates, and acquired receipts from that hour) attempt to induce severe nervous breakdowns by holding them in prison, eye-mocking them when they show up for questioning sessions in their orange DOC jumpsuits THAT ARE RIDICULOUS FOR THEM TO BE WEARING BECAUSE THIS IS FAKE BUT I GET IT BECAUSE IT’S TV, and basically turning the scenario from “You are participating in a potentially lucrative game show. What a fun, sexy time for you!” to “You took my money. Prepare to die.”  READ FULL STORY

(Fake) Severus Snape to young wizards: It Gets Better

SPOILER ALERT! If you don’t know Snape’s fate in the Harry Potter franchise, do not watch the video below. If you do, by all means, enjoy Canadian comic Gavin Crawford’s take on Snape filming an It Gets Better video for young wizards who feel persecuted or like they do not fit in. (My jaw tightens just typing that ‘t’ in fit.) READ FULL STORY

Summer Movie Body Count: 'Harry Potter' and the Murky Mortality Muddle


Week 11 of EW’s 2011 Summer Movie Body Count continues with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2. We expected this to reignite the debate over whether a certain someone technically dies, but we didn’t anticipate how difficult it would be to count the dead at the Battle of Hogwarts with the variety of curses, quick camera shots, and changes from the book. To be added to our list of casualties, you must die onscreen or have your lifeless body displayed. Let’s discuss, but keep it civil. Warning: SPOILERS AHEAD!  READ FULL STORY

'Damn it Feels Good to be a Lannister': Watch the 'Game of Thrones' rap!

If you combined the fame of the Hiltons, the glamour of the British royal family, the cutthroat power squabbles of the Murdochs, the general propensity towards ridiculous talent of the Pinkett Smiths, and the semi-Aryan dementedly perfect genetic code of the Winkelvosses, you would have a rough approximation of the Lannisters, the noble family whose dirty deeds occupied the center of the first season of Game of Thrones. A new YouTube video features uber-swordsman Jaime rapping alongside diminutive bro Tyrion in a redo of “Damn it Feels Good to be a Gangsta.” “A real high-class lord making love to his twin,” explains Jaime, “because high-class lords choose incest.” Watch, laugh, and learn: READ FULL STORY
