  • Could Sitcom Characters Really Afford Their Cribs? [Infographic]

    Due to the nature of TV, a large space is needed to film in, so sitcom characters tend to live in pretty big spaces. But sometimes the space is so big as to make it extremely difficult to suspend disbelief. This infographic takes 15 TV characters from current and classic shows and ranks their ability to pay for their homes. Did you believe Al Bundy could afford his two-story, 3 bedroom house on his shoe salesman salary? Not even close. And Danny Tanner, the happiest widower on TV, paying for that giant house in San Francisco for his 3 daughters and 2 best friends as host of a local morning show? They’d be on the street in no time!

  • Seth Rogen And Zac Efron Interview For Workaholics [Video]

    In the best ever ad that’s not really an ad at all, Zac Efron and Seth Rogen interview to be the new cubicle-mate of Workaholics’ Adam, Ders, and Blake at TelAmeriCorp. The hilarious interview, filled with filthy language and blatant homoeroticism, is actually funnier than most of the current season of the show. And you don’t even realize that the segment is to advertise for the upcoming movie “Neighbors” until the very end. This is how advertising should be done.

  • Behind The Scenes Photos Of James Franco, Jason Segel, And Seth Rogen When They Were Teens [17 Photos]

    From 1999-2000, NBC aired “Freaks and Geeks,” a high school comedy-drama set in the early 80s. The series was created by Paul Feig, who went on to direct “Bridesmaids,” and produced by Judd Apatow, who has made pretty much every comedy blockbuster of the last 15 years. The short-lived show is most remembered, though, for the “Freaks,” including James Franco, Jason Segel, and Seth Rogen. It was the first time many of us saw these actors, and nobody could guess the huge stars they would become after appearing on a show that lasted just 18 episodes.

  • Watch Mike Judge’s New Show “Silicon Valley” On YouTube [Video]

    The nice folks at HBO have decided to save us cheapskates from having to pirate Mike Judge’s new comedy “Silicon Valley” by offering the first episode for free on YouTube. It’s a pretty funny show featuring a ton of people who will have you saying “Hey! It’s that guy from that thing…” So watch the first episode, contemplate buying future episodes, then return to downloading from shady sites and wonder why your computer is overrun with malware, you bum.

  • Spanish ‘Breaking Bad’ remake ‘Metastasis’ vs. the original: What’s new? PHOTOS [Link]

    Have you found yourself suffering these last six months knowing that “Breaking Bad” is done with?

The bad news? It might be a little different than what you’re used to.

  • #CancelColbert Fiasco Summed Up By Taiwanese Animators [Video]

    Have you missed out on the recent Twitter campaign to #CancelColbert over a satirical tweet that some interpreted as racist? What began as a jab at Dan Snyder has caused agitated agitators like Suey Park to call for the end of the Comedy Central program while the original issue of the NFL’s Redskins being offensive to American Indians has been pushed aside. Judging by this animation from Taiwanese Animators, it looks like Suey Park isn’t speaking for all Asians, however.

  • Internet Superstar George Takei to Host Saturday Night Live

    Actor George Takei, known for his iconic role as Sulu on Star Trek and more recently for his commanding presence on social media, has been invited to host the popular late night television show after fans around the world clamored for it in various online petitions. It is April 1st, and George is known to be a funny guy, so this could be a well orchestrated April Fools joke but for now (fingers crossed) we’re going to consider it to be true: The 39th season of Saturday Night Live runs until the end of May and no date has been set but George announced the good news via Huffington Post: I’ve waited years to say these words. After a Facebook petition propelled Betty White to be invited to host Saturday Night Live back in 2010, fans of mine have clamored for me to receive a similar invitation. I demurred, but the fans kept up their pressure. And then, last week, the network called to work out the details with my husband and unofficial scheduler, Brad. “George has to do this,” they insisted. “He’s a natural fit.” Brad suggested we appear together as a high-profile same-sex married couple to help raise more »

  • Bryan Cranston Was A Teen Heartthrob In 1985

    Before he was Heisenberg, Malcolm’s Dad, or Jerry Seinfeld’s dentist, Bryan Cranston starred in the ABC soap “Loving,” and if this 1985 issue of Teen Talk is to be believed, he was every teen girl’s dream. This photo spread features everyone’s favorite crystal meth cook in too-short shorts showing his playful side in New York City’s Central Park. Who knew he was a “jock of all trades?” Is this magazine still being published? They should do an updated spread with Bryan in the same outfit plus Heisenberg hat. What girl could resist?

  • Realistic Homer Simpson Is Disgusting [7 Photos]

    South Korea-based artist Seung Hoon Roh is obviously very talented, but why did he want to make these? Homer Simpson looks so real here, that it’s disgusting and disturbing. The man-boobs resting atop the enormous belly, the sausage fingers, it’s all just too much to look at. But I also can’t look away. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. Seung has many more creepy 3D renditions of famous characters on his blog, including Marilyn Manson. The blog is in Korean, so if you can’t read it (I can’t), just click randomly on the pictures you see. It’s like a very scary game where nobody wins.

  • Nothing: A Seinfeld Supercut Of Nothingness [Video]

    Seinfeld was famous for being a show about nothing. “Nothing” takes the notion a step further by removing the people form Seinfeld. Granted, the exteriors with the music at the beginning get old fast, but skip ahead to the quiet shots of nothingness and you’ll feel like you’re at some hip new MoMA exhibit. The “city that never sleeps” with no people in it is a bit eerie but also somewhat calming.

  • Game of Thrones Season 4 Release 3rd Trailer. Things are Heating Up

    The third trailer for the fourth season of Game of Thrones gives a bit more insight prefacing this season. Redemption and revenge seem to be the catalyst for this upcoming season. Many characters will be questioning their stance from last season as you see in this trailer, Cersei Lannister asking the “new guy” Oberyn Martell, “what good is power if you cannot protect the ones you love?”, Tywinn Lannister seeing the effects The Red Wedding had first hand and Jon Snow is now seeking vengeance for the death of his family. Oh and theres dragons. Big dragons. )

  • Badly Drawn Seinfeld

    Sean Ryan is great at drawing badly. Below are his Seinfeld characters, but his talent (or lack thereof) isn’t just limited to the greatest TV show of all time. He also has plenty of bad drawings of famous writers and every footballer from the Merlin 94 Premier League Sticker Book. As good as those others are, we like the Seinfeld drawings most. Really, they’re not even that bad. They look like characters on a hip 90s cable cartoon, like “Duckman” or “Dr. Katz.” See the rest of Sean Ryan’s bad drawings at his Tumblr. 

  • Ground Breaking True Detective “Yellow King” Theory That Brings Everything Full Circle

    For the duration of 7 episodes, Theories surrounding the “King in Yellow” have been circumnavigating throughout the internet’s research and theories department. Digging up old 19th century novels, tying Robert W. Chambers back to the plot somehow. Watching each episode with meticulous detail, hoping to find that one Easter egg that ties it all together. That one glimpse of light that would eventually bring detectives Cohle and Hart to the conclusion that we hope to see in this Sunday’s finale. Well I think that theory has finally surfaced. This ground breaking work done by David Sidorov could be the answer to the question the world has been asking themselves for two months. Who is the Yellow King?

  • Transformers 4: Age of Explosions and Robot Noises

    The official trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction has just hit the press. Like the rest of the over the top Transformers franchise, this promises to have all the building smashing, robot noise making, explosive excitement as the rest of ‘em, topped off with a little Wahlberg flavor. “Hey bad-guy dinosauh robot, say hi to your mothah foh me.” Wahlberg then proceeds to stab bad-guy robot dinosaur in the head with a giant sword, rendering the beast neutralized.

  • Telecom Companies are Already Slowing Down Your Netflix

    Has Netflix seemed a little sluggish as of late? Not surprising after a federal court in D.C. disemboweled net neutrality last month. At the time, an uproar of concern was had by all steaming service advocates, fearing telecom giants would force companies like Netflix to stream content at top dollar and beyond. And you know what that means, higher fees for Netflix will ultimately hike up prices for their customers. Verizon and Netflix have been at each others throats as of late, tugging the rope back and fourth in a heated debate over just how much broadband content could be streamed without paying additional fees. Well it looks as though Verizon has made a decision. Netflix has reported on it’s recent drop in service speed provided by Verizon and it doesn’t look good for subscribers using the streaming service under the Fios umbrella. Netflix reports ”its average prime-time speeds dropped by 14% last month.” and it’s on a serious decline. Netflix is standing by it’s word refusing to pay more, when companies like Microsoft and Facebook have already given in to higher prices for quicker access to their site. Verizon’s argument, while blatently greedy makes a fair amount of sense. Sites more »

  • 6 Iconic Images Recreated In One Uninterrupted Shot [Video]

    The Sunday Times, one of the classier British newspapers (no page 3 girls), has released a new ad that takes 6 classic images from fine arts, cinema, TV, and music and combines them into one flowing shot. It’s like one of those crazy Michel Gondy music videos from the 90s condensed into 50 seconds. After watching the ad, also check out the “making of” video that shows the ad from a stationary camera set far back on the set. The amount of work that goes into such a short but complicated video is astounding.

  • Mike Judge Returns To TV With Silicon Valley [Video]

    Mike Judge, the comedic genius behind “Beavis and Butthead,” “King of the Hill,” “Office Space,” and “Idiocracy,” is returning to TV with the HBO comedy “Silicon Valley.” The premise, involving a bunch of computer nerds with brilliant ideas but no social skills to sell themselves, is hardly new territory, but Judge’s take is sure to be refreshing and quite vulgar. The show doesn’t premier until April 6, but HBO has been kind enough to leak this teaser trailer and it looks hilarious. It can’t be any worse than “The Good Family,” right? Remember that? Of course you don’t.

  • Zombies Attack New Yorkers [Video]

  • Jimmy Kimmel Asks People For Their Reaction To State Of The Union Address Before It Aired [Video]

    Nobody wants to look like a moron on camera, so when you are interviewed about your reaction to the State of the Union Address, you are probably going to lie your ass off about it as best as you can.
