What does an episode of 'Friends' look like without any jokes?

Taking the jokes out of an episode of Friends it like taking the meth out of an episode of Breaking Bad—it’s just wrong. And if you take the jokes out of season six’s “The One with the Apothecary Table” specifically, laughter is quickly replaced with judgment, Pottery Barn hatred, and Joey’s girlfriend Janine Lecroix, who’s just as annoying as when there were jokes involved.

The show still manages to be funny, however, because the writing wasn’t the only thing making viewers laugh. Watching Monica hit Janine with a trash bag will never be anything but immensely satisfying.

'True Blood': Our final season wish list

Will the seventh and final season of HBO’s True Blood remain “True to the End”?

On Sunday, True Blood will kick off its 10-episode seventh and final season. The last time we saw the good folks of Bon Temps, Louisiana, things weren’t looking so good: Hepatitis V was spreading rapidly throughout the vampire population, Sookie and Alcide were a couple, and a group of hungry and infected vampires were on their way to ravaging Bon Temps.

Bryan Cranston hints at more Walter White

Better Call Saul might not be the only place where Breaking Bad folks could show up in the future. (Spoilers for the finale follow, although, like, you know what happened in the finale by now, right?)

Bryan Cranston implied on CNN Thursday night that Walter White may not have died at the end of the series, despite what the episode seemed to suggest. Wait, what?

Host/superfan Ashleigh Banfield put the point to Cranston: “Your eyes were open and I thought, ‘what if the police just take him into custody, he gets better, breaks out and just goes nuts?'” (The interview is not yet online.)

Cranston played along, noting: “Hey, you never saw bags zip up or anything.”

Banfield: “Is he dead?””

Cranston: “I don’t know.”

Banfield: “No movie? No nothing? No Walter White ever again?”

Cranston: “Never say never.”

Sure, Cranston was likely just humoring her. In the finale script’s last pages, there seems to be no uncertainty about White’s fate. But who knows? Watch the “Felina” ender below, then debate if there’s any way for White to rise again. READ FULL STORY

'Joe Millionaire' winner gives her take on 'I Wanna Marry 'Harry"

When Fox announced its new reality series, I Wanna Marry “Harry”, many viewers flashed back to 2003 and the days of Joe Millionaire — a.k.a. the first time women were fooled into fighting for a man’s heart on TV, only to find out he wasn’t who he said he was.

But other than the whole Prince Charming angle, is there much of a difference between Joe and “Harry”? People asked Joe Millionaire winner Zora Sabrina (formerly known as Zora Andrich) to chime in. As she put it, “Just when I thought they’ve covered every reality show idea … Fox is at it again! I suppose it has been a decade, so in all fairness, a good deceptive reality show was due.” READ FULL STORY

Russell Crowe and Ricky Gervais live-tweeted their drunken evening together

What do Russell Crowe and Ricky Gervais have in common? An affinity for alcohol and Twitter — preferably at the same time.

Recently, Crowe and Gervais had a few drinks together. As any child of Instagram/Twitter knows, that can only lead to one thing: Drunken photos. Only when these guys post them, millions of people are watching — and their future job prospects don’t plummet. Sorry, kids.

Most of their conversation is below, minus a few deleted tweets from Gervais, which you can see on Buzzfeed.

Seth Rogen has met Justin Bieber a few times -- and he is not a fan

Seth Rogen is not a Belieber.

According to Digital Spy, while talking to Howard Stern on Sirius Monday, the Neighbors star explained that he’d met the young pop star a few times. “He’s a good example of someone, who you meet, who you think you are going to hate — and then you get to hate him… you meet him and he lives up to every one of your expectations,” Rogen said.

Met Gala's six most polarizing dresses -- POLL

An unscientific sampling of Twitter comments has led EW’s Fashion Elves to conclude that the following dresses from the Fash-indig known as the Met Gala have caused a divide among the masses. And if these differences of opinion are not resolved, we’re pretty sure lives will be lost, families will be split up, and the country will crumble. Well, all that OR life will go on as normal. But why risk it?

Help settle the debate by voting on six of the most polarizing dresses in our polls below. READ FULL STORY

Will this year's White House Correspondents' Dinner achieve normalcy? We hope not

For those of us who don’t get invited to the White House Correspondents Dinner (and are 100 percent bitter about it), the majority of the event’s fun comes from hearing which random trainwreck celebrities show up each year. Did Lindsay Lohan pop in again? What about Ozzy Osbourne?

So the bad news for all of us stuck at home on May 3 — again, totally bitter — is that 2014’s dinner is looking disappointingly normal. For starters, Joel McHale is serving as the evening’s entertainer, which sets a healthy, funny tone for the night. And whom will McHale be entertaining? The Wrap reports that Rosario Dawson, Julianna Margulies, David McCallum, Gloria Estefan, Sofia Vergara, Tony Goldwyn, and Madeline Stowe will be in attendance. Somebody call the cops, right? Wrong.

Oddsmakers favor Stephen Colbert to replace David Letterman

From the moment that David Letterman announced that he was retiring from his record-setting stint as the host of the Late Show, people have been speculating about what this could mean, us included. Will this be Jon Stewart’s chance? Or perhaps this is the time for a woman to take over the world of late night?

Highs and lows of 'The 100' series premiere

The CW’s latest drama with attractive teens is a post-apocalyptic tale about 100 (hot) delinquents who get ousted from their space home by really horrible adults, then sent to Earth to see if the once radiation-soaked planet is inhabitable again. What unfolds is a Lord of the Flies type rebellion: The teens attempt to establish their own society and cut off communication with their leaders on the Ark (the name they use for their space station home) because, Dude, they sent us here without knowing if it was safe and were totally cool with us dying. So, like, GFY. 

Not all the teens think that way, though. Some of them, like Wells (Eli Goree), whose dad (Isaiah Washington) is Chancellor, and Clarke (Eliza Taylor), the daughter of space doc Abby (Paige Turco), keep in mind the implications of severing communications with the Ark. (If all of their health monitors indicate death, they say, no one will want to come back for them.)

Further complicating matters is the fact that it seems Earth’s newest residents are not alone. There’s something lurking about in the forests where the teens were dropped, and judging by their first encounter, they’re not friendly. And, frankly, that’s exciting. In fact, the introduction of these mysterious beings was one of the best parts of episode 1, which is why they made my list of highs and lows below:
