'Gallery Girls' on Bravo: What is your damage?!

I’ve found my new favorite show to hate-watch (well, I love it but you will definitely maybe hate it): Gallery Girls on Bravo. This grotesque reality TV canvas is like a post-surrealist hybrid of The Hills and Girls — priced at $0 for all you art collectors! — that should probably just be called Bitches. It stars six young snots and one hardworking woman from Long Island who live and “work” in NYC and Brooklyn, which the show treats like a separate country.

Have I lost you yet, or do the two melting clocks in the desert (pictured) have you intrigued? READ FULL STORY

'Suits': An emotional twist, a rekindling of sexual tension, and Harvey about to punch Louis -- must be finale time!

If your DVR, like mine, cut off the promo for next week’s Suits season finale after last night’s episode, watch it in full below. If you haven’t seen last night’s episode yet, do not watch that promo. MAJOR SPOILER. Let’s break it down. READ FULL STORY

What's your damage, Olympics commercials?

Welcome to ‘What Is Your Damage,’ Annie Barrett’s summer shop of all the melodrama and self-absorption she misses from springtime reality TV. Every Tuesday and Friday, she’ll rant about a current offense to her humanity, then assess readers’ damages via video replies. Don’t be shy about admitting what annoys or intrigues you. We’re all in this pop cult together!

What’s your damage, Olympics commercials? Way to fuel my post-London depression. The Games are over but you’re still around, bringing back misty water-colored memories of the 17 days I spent cryling (crying/smiling) and LOVING IT on my couch. It’s time to go! You’ll fade out anyway, and it’s best we make a clean break so I can muster up the courage to go outside again. You know I love you, but you’re ultimately a fleeting tease, like Costas’ one-night-only hipster glasses. “What’s Your Damage, London?” volumes 1, 2, 3, and 4 were fun, but I can’t keep writing about the Olympics forever. Just once more. Allow me to assess your damage.

Olympics recap, Day 14: The joy of Carmelita Jeter's victory, agony of Morgan Uceny's defeat

NBC’s primetime telecast had something for everyone Friday night: Joy and pain at the track (both running and BMX), the network’s two best trips down memory lane (with the 1992 Dream Team and the first charming man to run under a four-minute mile), male 10m platform divers with and without body hair, and a Downton Abbey shout-out in a Mary Carillo segment on castles and coats of arms. (Why didn’t they choose a funnier sound bite from the Dowager Countess?) Let’s dig in. READ FULL STORY

What is your damage, London Olympics? (Vol. 4)

Welcome to ‘What Is Your Damage,’ Annie Barrett’s summer shop of all the melodrama and self-absorption she misses from springtime reality TV. Every Tuesday and Friday, she’ll rant about a current offense to her humanity, then assess readers’ damages via video replies. Don’t be shy about admitting what annoys or intrigues you.

What’s your damage, Olympics? (After the exhaustive picture roundups of Volume 1, Volume 2, and Volume 3, I ask you for the last time.) Why must you end in two days and RUIN MY LIFE?

I’m particularly mad at you, Bob Costas, for wearing those random yet intriguing glasses that kept disappearing and reappearing during last night’s primetime telecast. Why’d you wait ’til Day 13 to transform into Harry Potter’s wet hot American uncle? Those hipster specs of yours were just like the Olympics: As soon as you get invested — poof! They’re gone. Brutal.

Olympics recap, Day 12: Misty sandy-colored memories of the way we won

That sand looks super spongey, right? Like long jump gold medalist Brittney Reese is landing in a big cake? It’s tea time, fellow armchair Olympians. Let’s dig deep and dive right in.

Day 12 brought a gold-medal U.S. vs. U.S. beach volleyball match, a charmed third time for sprinter Allyson Felix, and my sneaking suspicion that I would willingly watch random track and field events in prime time any night. These athletes, man. They’re getting to me. I don’t know if I can go back to regular old humans again. Couldn’t NBC just keep showing more Olympics instead of America’s Got Talent? They could still call it that! READ FULL STORY

Olympic Studs of the Day: Golden Girls Kerri Walsh Jennings and Misty May-Treanor

It’s a THREE-PEAT! Congratulations to Misty and Kerri — now three-time Olympic gold medalists and the best beach volleyball team in history. The pair, dubbed the Golden Girls due to their likenesses to Sophia and Blanche (nope), have been finding sand in weird places together for TWELVE YEARS. That’s nearly 2.1 million congratulatory mid-set ass pats!

Kerri and Misty have been the pinup girls of beach volleyball ever since their 2004 Athens win — and despite their wedgie-inducing uniforms and hot bods, I don’t mean “pinup” like that. I mean that every girl who decided to give beach volleyball a shot still has the Golden Girls tacked up somewhere on their bedroom walls. (Gabrielle Reece was on mine.) These two have set the tone of their sport and it’s gotten HUGE since then. Fun fact: Every player May and Walsh faced during the London games had started competitively after they’d won gold in Athens. READ FULL STORY

DirecTV-Viacom feud makes children cry (or at least that 'No More Dora' Nickelodeon commercial did)

Search Twitter for responses from
DirecTV subscribers currently without their 17 Viacom-owned cable networks and you'll see some passionate ones. Some folks (like Big Bang Theory EP Bill Prady) would like the financial dispute swiftly resolved so they can watch The Daily Show and The Colbert Report on Comedy Central, while others simply want their MTV or BET (or CMT or VH1). But it's the parents of Nickelodeon fans who caught our attention. Chancie Parmley, 30, is a mother of three -- 3-year-old Lexi, 5-year-old John, and 8-year-old Kiley -- in Virginia Beach, VA. Last night, she and her family were watching Nickelodeon when they saw a commercial informing them that their favorite shows were soon to be "NO MORE" and giving them DirecTV's number to call. Watch it below.* "My 3-year-old was in tears saying, 'I'll never get to watch Dora again, Mommy. Why are they doing that? Why are they not letting me watch Dora? I love Dora,'" Parmley tells EW. "My 5-year-old was like, 'I'll never get to see SpongeBob?!' How do you explain that to a 3- and a 5-year-old? If you want to say, 'Call DirecTV and discuss it with them,' fine. But you don't use cartoon characters to scare kids to manipulate their parents. That's below the belt.... It's kinda like saying, 'Santa Claus has died, and you're never gonna get anymore Christmas presents.' To a kid, 'I'll never get to see my favorite show again' is a big deal. To them, cartoon characters are real. I've talked to friends who've said the exact same thing. [Their kids]

felt like SpongeBob was dying.” (A rep for Nickelodeon did not return EW’s request for comment.) READ FULL STORY

What is your damage, creepy boat scene from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory?

Now that it’s officially summer, I thought this would be the perfect time to examine how my obsession with a boat ride from hell has chartered my own slow but sure descent into madness.
