The 'Pretty Little Liars' Dilemma: Why my friends are giving up on the show

Pretty Little Liars fans love mystery. Trying to figure out who’s on the “A” team is nothing if not a good time. But now, with only two episodes left in Season 4’s summer run, I’m surrounded by friends and fans who are talking about giving up on the show … if they haven’t already. And let’s just say, it doesn’t have anything to do with the attractiveness of the cast.

But what is it that’s making people throw in the towel? Well, my diagnosis is what will be referred to as the Pretty Little Liars Dilemma: Too many questions, not enough answers, and not enough risk.

'American Ninja Warrior': Play along while feeling utterly useless!

It’s damn near impossible to simultaneously watch American Ninja Warrior (airing Sunday nights on G4 and Monday nights on NBC) and feel like a respectable human being. Not only are you doing nothing indoors (and watching this of all things?), but you are no ninja. Can you even lift your TV? Don’t even try. What’s the point? You’re a disgrace.

Below are my ill-fated suggestions for “playing along” during ANW — the magnificent Upper Body Beastliness obstacle course quickly winning the hearts and guts of millions of Americans who have less hope than ever of executing a single pull-up in their lifetimes. Rev up your appetite and get ready to live vicariously through these tremendous beasts — and hate yourself more than ever!

OBSTACLE 1: QUINTUPLE STEPS

Screen Shot 2013-08-05 at 9.44.19 PM

Retrieve a snack from the kitchen. Repeat five times. Go easy on this one. There’s a lot left to be done, but it’s all downhill from here.

OBSTACLE 2: DOWNHILL JUMP

Screen Shot 2013-08-05 at 9.43.47 PM

Pfffft. Anyone could do this. Just ride a skateboard down any railing in your house, then grab whatever’s closest (chocolate?) for support. Move on. It gets darker. READ FULL STORY

Watch Kanye West's remixed 'Canyons' trailer

Can moviegoers count Kanye West among those hoping for a Lindsay Lohan comeback?

By way of his multimedia production company DONDA, West has scored a recut version of the trailer for Lindsay Lohan-starrer The Canyons – this time featuring a lot of deep bass. But the specifics of the sound differences between Lohan’s sultry lines are the least of our concerns. More pressing: Does this mean West has seen the film? Is Part 4 of the Lohan comeback train appearing in a music video for Yeezus? Should we expect newly late night show-bound Lohan to start getting tips from reality mogul Kim Kardashian? So many questions!

Check out the new trailer, as well as the original, below: READ FULL STORY

'Capture': The CW presents 'The Hunger Games'

Poorly!

I’m sorry to report that as of now (the one-hour premiere aired Tuesday and will air again tonight), the CW’s new reality series Capture is less Hunger Games and more Really Big Game of Hide and Go Seek. There are 12 couples (each week, a different team will conduct The Hunt while the others will be The Prey) competing for $250,000 and the chance to say “I didn’t die on television!” The problem is that the other people will also get to say that. I know it’s not The Hunger Games exactly, but after the fancy race start narrated by a tweak-y Englishman (host Luke Tipple, disappointingly wig-less as far as I can tell), I craved genetically engineered wasps, poisonous berries, Mockingjays (though at one point we did see a random fat bird) or a gift of warm, fresh bread from Camera Crew 11. Anything! READ FULL STORY

Yes, Ruthie Camden from '7th Heaven' did a 'Maxim' photo shoot

Where can you go when the world don’t treat you right — and your TV show got canceled six years ago?

The answer is Maxim!

Like Danielle Fishel, Amanda Bynes, and Hilary Duff before her — not to mention Alyssa Milano, who pioneered the trend way back in 1998 — 23-year-old Mackenzie Rosman has decided to prove she’s all grown up by posing for a spread in the men’s magazine. (Unfortunately, she didn’t snag a cover of her own; fittingly enough, that honor went to Milano this month.)

The pictures show the onetime child actress posing in her underwear, seductively lifting a cover-up over a beige bikini, and lying topless on a bench in a plaid skirt that sort of looks like a Catholic school uniform, which makes thematic sense until you remember that 7th Heaven‘s Camden family wasn’t Catholic.

College mascot requests that Nirvana record video for Homecoming ... in 2013

In today’s round of “Oh, sweetie … really?” news, a well-intentioned but seriously sheltered student from Virginia Tech sent a letter to indie label Sub Pop asking if the band Nirvana can record a video for Homecoming. What did you say? Nirvana hasn’t been around for a decade? And lead singer Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994? Eh, it’s not like they’re one of the most famous bands of all time or anything, so how could we know? READ FULL STORY

Schindler's List -- the actual document -- is being auctioned on eBay

Seriously. Seriously.

According to the New York Post, California collectors Gary Zimet and Eric Gazin are selling this priceless historical document on behalf of its current owner, who purchased it for an undisclosed price in 2011. The 14-page list is one of only four copies still in existence; two of the others are located in Israel’s Yad Vashem Holocaust museum, while the third resides in Washington, D.C.’s Holocaust Museum.

Zimet and Gazin told the Post that they’re hoping to fetch as much as $5 million for the list. “We decided to sell the list on eBay because it has over 100 million worldwide members, and this is a global story,” Gazin explained. “There are billionaires using the site, wealthy celebrities. We like the platform.”

Bidding began last night at a measly $3 million; so far, there have been no takers, perhaps because the auction page warns that there will be “no returns or exchanges” on this lot. Bummer!

Comic-Con 2013: The Awkward Hug Challenge returns

The Comic-Con Awkward Hug Challenge is something of an EW tradition, but for those who are not familiar: We’re sorry.

For everyone else, let us set it up for you.

Who was this year’s winner? Watch below to find out!

'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' premiere: Season 2's 18 greatest quotes, so far

The second season of the decline and fall of western civilization Here Comes Honey Boo Boo premiered tonight on TLC — and it’s safe to say that fame and fortune haven’t changed the Thompson clan one lick.

They’re still living in a modest single-family home in tiny McIntyre, Georgia. They’re still eating their special brand of locally-sourced cuisine (on the menu tonight: roadkill pig!). They’re still making their own fun, breaking out buckets of butter for impromptu food fights and throwing a Dukes of Hazzard — sorry, that’s Dukesy Hazzard — theme party for patriarch Sugar Bear’s birthday.

And, of course, they’re still doing wondrous, eminently quotable things to the English language — which viewers like you can enjoy at home, thanks to TLC’s helpful subtitles. What are the lines you’ll be repeating incredulously over brunch this weekend? Try these:

'Get Out Alive With Bear Grylls': What are you missing?

Get-Out-Alive.jpg

Bear Grylls’ new NBC reality show (Mondays at 9 ET) is like Fear Factor with hiking, Survivor without bathing suits, or The Amazing Race with at least 75 percent less fun. The remaining eight pairs will continue to traverse the New Zealand wilds for the next six weeks. So, what are you missing?

DOWNGRADE IN GROSS SURVIVAL FOODS: This week’s yucca roots and earthworms were much more manageable than last week’s fish eyes and human urine mixed with muddy water. When I took my glasses off, the worms looked like some poorly prepared pesto spaghetti. And in a gourmet can? I’d totally eat that.

REFRESHING HONESTY FOR REALITY TV: Sure, some of the pairs seem to be “tattling” on each other when grilled by Bear (eww…what would grilled bear taste like? we’ll find out on week 17!) but they’re really just telling the truth about some of the other contestants’ physical struggles. There’s been no significant backstabbing as of yet. Unless you count…. READ FULL STORY
