Let's revisit Larry King's 2 a.m. Twitter rampage

We all have those moments late at night when the Netflix queue is just “meh,” everything in the freezer has been microwaved and eaten, and all there’s left to do in this world is to tweet. It seems that Larry King had that kind of night as he tweeted with the stamina of a thousand youths late last night (or more like early this morning). It all began with a critical appraisal of Dane Cook’s Showtime special (as it usually does) and devolved into an appreciation of Derek Jeter, Oreo cookies with milk, and a hatred of people with perfect teeth. Let’s try to figure out what the hell is actually going on.

Louis C.K. shares more thoughts on Twitter, this time about ISIS

Louis C.K. has a lot of thoughts. He has thoughts on TMZ, on where we all came from, and today, he has thoughts on extremist group ISIS—or, as he calls them, “homegrown raping marauding c–ts.”

ISIS, a group based in Iraq and Syria, has beheaded several hostages in the past months and distributed videos of the murders to the masses. C.K. suggested that the group “f–k each other in the mouth with forks.” He also proposes that we “f–k ISIS in all 3 holes and make a fifth and f–k them there too” before apologizing for writing “3 holes” instead of “4 holes.” Good thing that’s cleared up.

NFL players read personal Twitter insults in 'Mean Tweets' on 'Kimmel'

Julia Roberts has done it. NBA players have done it. Now its time for some NFL players to get their share of the Internet’s vitriol.

Jimmy Kimmel brought in a gaggle of current and retired football players (and one Erin Andrews) Thursday night for a special NFL edition of “Mean Tweets,” just in time for the regular season to commence. From Michael Strahan’s infamous tooth gap to DeSean Jackson’s penchant for affordable mall-style clothing, Twitter does not leave any possible insult hanging. Below, watch Terrell Owens get called a piece of donkey excrement (in slightly less euphemistic terms) and more. READ FULL STORY

Woman watches all the TV in EW's 24-Hour Emmys Binge Guide, lives

It is a massive undertaking that requires a Stevie Nicks dance party, forced insomnia, and the stamina to do a whole lot of sitting.

Dedicated fan Ellen Lloyd (@eel8) took up EW‘s challenge and livetweeted through an entire day’s worth of Emmy-nominated shows featured in the EW 24-Hour Binge Guide, with the Twitter time stamps to prove it. And Lloyd wasn’t messing around. Per the guide’s eating and drinking requests during various shows, Lloyd ate like the Dowager Countess during Downton Abbey with tea and Peppermint Milanos and drank like Scandal’s Olivia Pope (albeit in the form of a grape Popsicle in lieu of wine).

It wasn’t easy: Lloyd had to shirk off her distaste of Girls by watching the divisive “Beach House” episode, yet she managed to handle Dunham’s irresolute Brooklyn hipsters. It’s a feat to be admired, so Lloyd’s endeavor will henceforth be referred to in this post as “The Binge.” READ FULL STORY
