TWoP 10: TV Couples We're Supposed to Care About — But Don't

These aren't necessarily the worst couples on TV this season (after all, Jim and Pam are missing from the list), but rather the romantic pairings whose fan followings are most disproportionate to our current interest levels. Granted, we may once been invested in their storylines at one time, but at this point we'd just wish that their respective shows would finally move beyond them.

TWoP 10: Things Donald Trump Will Do When He Becomes President

Recent Comedy Central roastee and Celebrity Apprentice host Donald Trump has mentioned his interest in running for president of the United States, and while we laughed that off at first, apparently he's got a shot. According to a recent poll of Republican primary voters, he's currently the second choice to get the nomination. Maybe the American people love that comb-over after all? To prepare ourselves for the impossible coming true, we've looked ahead at Trump's first ten orders of business upon taking the Oval Office.

Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump: Here’s the Situation

<i>Comedy Central Roast of Donald Trump</i>: Here’s the Situation

After hearing how bad The Situation was when they taped this roast, I was dreading it, and, well, for his part he totally bombed. Completely. There was deafening silence as he delivered his clunkers which turned to extremely vocal boos during the course of his few minute stint. Jeff Ross tried in vain to assist him, but it was too late, Sitch's comedy career was dead on arrival. However, I'd love it if he was at future roasts, not to deliver any of his own "zingers," but because he was the butt of more jokes than Trump himself. Fair warning, the content below is not for the faint of heart, or really anyone who doesn't have a sense of humor.

TWoP 10: Kids and Teens on TV That We Don't Hate

TWoP 10: Kids and Teens on TV That We Don't Hate

Too often, our precious airwaves are filled with children who scream and give us migraines, precocious kids who try too hard to be cute, spoiled rich teenagers and temper-tantrum-throwing brats who make us want to seriously reconsider ever procreating. The majority of the offspring on Parenthood are really not helping this cause, for example. Nor is watching the sociopathic Sally Draper. However, there are a select few kids and teens on scripted shows who give us hope for the next generation. In fact, we'd actually consider spending time with these kids willingly... and that's saying a lot.

<I>Glee</I>: The Madonna Songs Each Cast Member Should Sing

Madonna has opened her catalog to the show Glee (let's face it, the woman likes money!), which provides a whole new world of songs for the cast to perform. While the first announced tune is Quinn doing "Papa Don't Preach" (because who better to sing a song about teenage pregnancy than the knocked-up cheerleader), it inspired us to think of our dream tunes for each of the show's stars.

Whedon Need No Stinkin’ Dollhouse Interview!

Whedon Need No Stinkin’ <i>Dollhouse</i> Interview!

The March 20th episode of Dollhouse is the fabled sixth episode, the one in which everything supposedly changes and the series really kicks into high gear. Angel has already told us her impressions of it, but now we have a lot of questions about the rest of the season -- luckily, show creator Joss Whedon was standing by to take our conference call, and play defense on a bunch of questions about sex, dolls and Dollhouse Season 4.

All Dolled Up: Joss Whedon Talks Dollhouse

All Dolled Up: Joss Whedon Talks <i>Dollhouse</I>

While I didn't get to Comic Con's Dollhouse panel because the line was totally insane, and while I didn't get a lottery ticket to get to meet Joss Whedon in person, I did get to participate in a conference call with him on Friday, and that was sort of the next best thing. Well, at least I got to watch the first episode in the comfort of my own office, so that's something. The Buffy mastermind dished about his new series, where he's paired up again with Buffy badass Eliza Dushku, which is a twisted tale about a group of men and women (most notable Dushku's Echo) who get programmed to perform tasks by a company and then regularly have their memories wiped. These girls can be anything you want them to be, but will the show be what fans want? Or will it get axed early like Whedon's other Fox series Firefly. Whedon talked about that and much more in his call. Here are the highlights.

Life Partners: Damian Lewis and Donal Logue Speak Out

<i>Life</i> Partners: Damian Lewis and Donal Logue Speak Out

This season, Life fans were given a treat in the form of Donal Logue, the veteran actor (Blade, Grounded for Life) who came in to play the role of New York transplant Captain Tidwell, the new boss of Detectives Crews and Reese. We got a chance to join in on a conference call to interview Logue and Damian Lewis (Crews) about some interesting developments for the show, including Rachel's imminent departure, Crews' daddy issues and why six seasons sounds about right.

TWoP 10 Reasons Joss Whedon Fans Should Be Nervous About <I>Dollhouse</I>

We're excited that Joss Whedon put his show on halt when he started seeing poor-quality scripts come across his desk. We're all about making the show not suck... but does a big change before the show even debuts spell trouble for the show? We hope not, because there's not a hell of a lot we enjoy more than watching Eliza Dushku kick people's ass. Unless it is Jennifer Garner or Angelina Jolie kicking people's asses.

Don LaFontaine, 1940-2008

Don LaFontaine, 1940-2008

When watching movie trailers, audiences are usually so entranced by the images they're shown that few people think about the voice that's telling them what the movie's about. Of course, if the voice is doing its job right, you don't have to think about it; only a bad voice-over jars you out of the scenes you're watching. A good voice-over will make you think some omnipotent deity is inside your head, filling you in on the details, and more often than not, Don LaFontaine was that omnipotent deity. Sadly, he passed away on September 1, which means he just got a lot more omnipotent, and one step closer to deification.
