<I>Best Friends Forever</i>: Cast Your <i>Three’s Company</i> Fears Aside

After the Bosom Buddies-style nightmare that was Work It, there was some fear that NBC's new sitcom Best Friends Forever would be Three's Company: 2012. Given that the series revolves around two best female friends living with a male roommate, these reservations were not initially unwarranted, but after watching BFF's pilot, I'm happy to report the sitcom is a whole 'nother show and, unexpectedly, refreshingly funny.

Talking Friends (And Kids) With Adam Scott

Talking Friends (And Kids) With Adam Scott

Although all of the ads for the new romantic comedy Friends with Kids play up the movie's impressive ensemble -- Jon Hamm! Kristen Wiig! Maya Rudolph! Megan Fox! -- they don't indicate that Adam Scott is actually the movie's leading man. The Parks and Recreation star plays Jason Fryman, a single-and-loving-it New Yorker who decides to enter into an unusual arrangement with his best friend, Julie (Jennifer Westfeldt, who also wrote and directed the movie): they'll have a kid together and share joint custody, but since they're not actually attracted to each other, they won't bother with marriage. At first, this arrangement gives Jason the best of both worlds as he's able to experience the fun of fatherhood while also being able to indulge his single guy hormones by dating a smoking hot Broadway dancer (Megan Fox). But then... well, you'll just have to see the movie for yourself. In town for the movie's premiere, Scott spoke with us about how he scored the gig and what costume he wore for Halloween last year. (Hint: He previously donned it for a very popular episode of Parks and Rec.)

Best Boyfriends (and Husbands) on TV

We don't often get all mushy and romantic over here at TWoP, but it's Valentine's week, the one time of the year when we do have a little bit of a heart. To take advantage of this momentary lapse of cynicism, we decided to spotlight the often underappreciated characters on TV who are really just amazingly wonderful guys we wish we were dating or (dare we dream) married to. If they actually existed, that is.

New Year’s Eve-Themed Episodes: A Countdown From 10

10…9…8…7…6…5…4…3…2…rerun! In anticipation for New Year's Eve festivities you can either watch yet another Ryan Seacrest-hosted event with uncomfortable D-list celebrity banter, freezing strangers wishing a "Happy New Year" to other strangers, and pre-recorded performances from pop stars, or you can watch something good. (That said, if this year the clock strikes midnight and the zombie apocalypse unfolds on live television and you're watching one of these old TV episodes instead, we sincerely apologize for making you miss it.)
