'Chasing Leprechauns': The Hallmark original movie that celebrates St. Patrick's Day but sounds like April Fools'

On March 17, Hallmark Channel will premiere the original film Chasing Leprechauns starring Adrian Pasdar and Amy Huberman. With that title, it’s already legendary, but now read the synopsis: READ FULL STORY

'Bachelor': The skinny-dipping isn't the only thing upsetting me

Last night’s episode of The Bachelor was controversial because Courtney broke ranks and sought Ben out on another girl’s date night to make good on her earlier proposal that they go skinny-dipping. When I asked Ben about that decision before the season began, having just seen it teased in a promo, he said he compartmentalized his relationships with the women and didn’t compare them. “So if more women wanted to go skinny-dipping with me, they should have asked… and I would have gone,” he laughed. “Those are things you do when you’re trying to get to know someone and you get in a relationship.”

I laughed, too, because I didn’t know how foolish Courtney would make the other women — who seem to show each other more respect than she does — look. Some fans are coming down on Ben for agreeing to go skinny-dipping with Courtney when that many women were left. If it had happened on a sanctioned date, I wouldn’t have had a problem with it. (I mean, other than the fact that Courtney appears to be manipulating him so she can keep saying “Winning!”) I’m just as disappointed in ABC for running all those promos that made it look like the women either saw it happening or found out about it right away. A rep for the network says neither it nor the ladies can comment on when the other women catch wind of it. We’ll just have to tune in. (At the very least, it will certainly make the Women Tell All interesting now that they’ve definitely seen it.)  READ FULL STORY

Van Halen and other returns you'll welcome in 2012

The news of Van Halen hitting the road again in 2012 got me thinking about the other comebacks I’m eagerly awaiting. Next year, I’ll happily welcome the return of:

Sappy Rachel McAdams: The Vow, costarring Channing Tatum, is the closest we’ll get to her doing a sequel to The Notebook.

 Sappy Nicholas Sparks novel adaptation: Something was missing in 2011, and it was me dragging friends to see one of these. Zac Efron’s biceps are making The Lucky One a surprisingly easy sell.  READ FULL STORY

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez to celebrate New Year's Eve on different networks

Every time I think I’m a grown up, I find myself caring about something like whether Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez will be able to share a kiss at midnight on New Year’s Eve. They’ll both be in NYC, but performing on different networks. Gomez will take the stage for MTV’s NYE in NYC 2012, along with Demi Lovato, Jason Derulo, Mac Miller, and J. Cole. Bieber is one of the performers on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2012, as well as Lady Gaga, Pitbull, and Hot Chelle Rae in New York, and The Band Perry, blink-182, Christina Perri, Florence + The Machine, Gym Class Heroes, LMFAO, OneRepublic, Nicki Minaj, Taio Cruz, and will.i.am in Los Angeles. Were I a network exes, I’d try to find a way to block off a tiny portion of the street so Bieber and Gomez could run to each other as the clock ticked down and the million-strong crowd’s cheers swelled. I want to see the ball drop, but I would totally watch the romantic Bieber-Gomez kiss picture-in-picture. Bieber likes grand romantic gestures. THIS COULD BE HIS BIGGEST ONE YET!

'Glee' sectionals preview: Good songs, bad dancing (plus some stripping!)

It’s sectionals on tomorrow night’s Glee, and Fox has posted a tease online that shows New Directions doing a Jackson family tribute (including Ms. Jackson’s “Control”) and the Trouble Tones taking on Destiny’s Child (“Survivor”). I appreciate that both groups are putting more emphasis on choreography than we’ve seen in the past — none of that pacing and changing formations — but both dance crews look Finn-awkward to me. A second sneak peek shows what Chord Overstreet’s Sam has been up to since we last saw him: auditioning for Magic Mike stripping under the name White Chocolate! “Cory [Monteith], the whole time we’re doing it, he’s got his phone out,” Overstreet says of filming his return. “I’m like ‘Cory, if you tweet one of those videos, I swear I’m going to kill you.’” (Cut to Monteith proudly showing a picture on his phone.) Sam’s also been learning Toby Keith’s “Red Solo Cup,” which is his first song back. Watch the previews below. READ FULL STORY

Men don't root for will-they-or-won't-they TV couples?! POLL!

Last night, the promo USA aired for the Dec. 6 season finale of Covert Affairs definitely got fans talking. “All season long, he was always there for her,” the voiceover says of Christopher Gorham’s Auggie and Piper Perabo’s Annie. “Now, will admitting her true feelings be her toughest mission yet?” The real question is, was it just the show’s female fans doing all the tweeting? Here’s why I’m asking: Yesterday, I chatted with Gorham for two items we’ll post next week: A fun, spoiler-free EW Pop Culture Personality Test before the finale and a juicy postmortem Q&A after it airs. During the personality test portion of our chat, I asked him to name a will-they-or-won’t-they TV couple he roots for…  READ FULL STORY

Which holiday TV movie is your must-see?

Consider this a PopWatch PSA: If there’s a holiday film you look forward to seeing each year, start checking the listings now. You don’t want to get a confessional e-mail from your friend Robb the morning after titled “My Hallmark Night” detailing how he stayed up late watching TV movies, including one of your favorites, 1999′s A Season for Miracles (starring Carla Gugino as the aunt who goes on the run with her niece and nephew to keep the kids together, David Conrad as the cop who falls for her, and Patty Duke as the angel who SPOILER ALERT! orchestrates their happily ever after). Luckily, it repeats Dec. 3 at 2 a.m. ET and Dec. 4 at 11 a.m. ET.

So, which holiday movie would it kill you to miss? My must-see is Flirting With Forty, the Lifetime movie starring Robert Buckley as the surfing instructor who gifts long-distance love Heather Locklear a bikini that she wears to take out the garbage on New Year’s Eve. READ FULL STORY

David, Seinfeld talked Natalie Wood case on 'Curb' in season 7

The mystery surrounding Natalie Wood’s death 30 years ago may not have been a recent topic of conversation for most people until police announced they were reopening the case last week. But as Slate’s Brow Beat blog keenly observed, Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld worked it into a debate about whether reunions are ever a good idea during the seventh season of Curb Your Enthusiasm. Watch the scene below.

And as for Robert Wagner’s ill-timed return to NCIS last night: His character, Tony DiNozzo’s con man father, was — spoiler alert! — ultimately cleared of any wrong doing after he woke up with a dead man in the trunk of his rented Rolls. He’d been roofied at a bar and framed by the lawyer of a business associate who’d just screwed them both. READ FULL STORY

'Sons of Anarchy': Will Clay survive the season? If not, who should pull the trigger? Poll!

If you’re not caught up on Sons of Anarchy, stop reading now.

If you are, have you recovered from these last two weeks? I was physically out of breath watching “Hands,” the Nov. 8 episode in which we endured the painful wait for Clay’s hitman to make his move on Tara and saw Clay beat Gemma. Last night’s episode, “Call of Duty,” piled onto the tension. READ FULL STORY
