Facebook has changed the way people meet one another and how we learn more about people shortly after departing from their company. “Facebook stalking” has become a common enough of a concept that we now have a romance based on that very concept: A Case of You. While everything about it is pretty obvious after the first 30 minutes, from the conflict to the resolution, it still has enough charm and a few good performances to make it worth watching. Director Kat Coiro’s romantic comedy doesn’t have a whole lot of comedy, but its sincerity and cast (Justin Long, Evan Rachel Wood, Sam Rockwell, Busy Philipps, Peter Dinklage, Brendan Fraser) give it some heft.

When it comes to choosing godparents, people often pick those closest to them to inspire and provide guidance to their child. So it's no surprise that most celebrity kids end up with very big stars influencing their upbringing. Steven Spielberg is godfather to a pair of huge stars, Drew Barrymore and Gwyneth Paltrow, and Nicole Richie's got two superstar goddads of her own. Michelle Williams's little girl, Matilda Ledger, calls Jake Gyllenhaal and Busy Philipps her honorary parents, while Courteney Cox looked to Bff Jennifer Aniston to take the role of godmother to her daughter, Coco Arquette. See more sets of surprising celebrity godparents, including Elton John, Hugh Grant, and Lady Gaga, when you scroll through now. View Slideshow › »

Kristen Bell gets some help from Et.
Et is joining forces with Veronica Mars star Kristen Bell and her husband Parenthood actor Dax Shepard in their fight against paparazzi taking pictures of celebrities' children without consent. Et has agreed to not air these photos or videos.
Since the birth of their daughter, Bell and Shepard have been vocal on this topic and decline interviews with media outlets known to purchase images from the paparazzi. Both actors have passionately campaigned, especially through their personal social media platforms, to motivate others and bring more attention to this cause. Media outlets using images celebrities post on their own social media platforms or of children attending red carpets and media events are not the issue.
By joining forces, Et and the couple hope that additional press outlets will follow their lead. Et's sister show, The Insider independently adapted the “no kids” policy after meeting with Bell.

In a storyline focused on her character Laurie's cake shop, Philipps' 4-year-old daughter appears as a young customer -- a part the actress tells Zap2it was written with Birdie in mind.
"Well, she's been on set since she was about six months old, when we shot the pilot. She came almost every day for the first two years of the show, until she started preschool," Philipps says. "She's really used to being on set and being around everyone in the crew, but when they wrote that part, in the script, it said, 'A little girl enters the cake shop played by Birdie Silverstein.' [They] just thought it would be fun to have her in a scene."
"So I asked her if she wanted to do »

Though Cougar Town's ratings dropped quite a bit when the sitcom moved from ABC to TBS, it was still one of the cable channel's highest-rated original series. Will it continue to be a success? Is it essentially guaranteed to be renewed because of syndication? Stay tuned!

Five seasons in, "Cougar Town" has officially settled into its formulaic groove - for better or worse.
During its Season 5 premiere on Tuesday (Jan. 7), its second season on new network TBS, fans of the Cul-de-Sac Crew got exactly what they've come to expect: A goofy mixture of jokes of the long-running inside and meta varieties, with a final act that exhibits some actual emotion and sentiment. And while that formula has proven a winning one for the last four seasons, it all feels a little hollow here.
The A-story, which follows Courteney Cox's Jules as she struggles to accept Travis (Dan Byrd) and Laurie's (Busy Philipps) new relationship, goes through the usual motions. There's the requisite creepy comments from Jules regarding, oh you know, her son, which goes so far as to actually have her (accidentally) touch a part of his body that kicks that Oedipal thing into hyperdrive. »
That’s why you won’t see a fifth season, which premieres tonight on TBS, full of curve balls or too many guest stars (save one, which we’ll get to). “In the past, when I’ve had shows that go on for a long time — like the 6 or 7th year of Scrubs– I’ve thrown curveballs into it that ultimately weren’t satisfying,” says Lawrence, who handed over daily duties to »

The question of will they or won't they was buried long ago for Cougar Town's main couple Jules (Courteney Cox) and Grayson (Josh Hopkins), who tied the knot at the end of Season 3 in a spontaneous but romantic beachside ceremony. However, just as the mystery surrounding their future died down, the questions surrounding whether Jules' son, Travis (Dan Byrd) and her best friend Laurie (Busy Philipps) heated up. Now in Season 5, which premieres Tuesday at 10/9c on TBS, the flirtatious twosome are giving this relationship thing a go. How will Jules react? Non-spoiler alert: Not well! Byrd talked with TVGuide.com about why a Travis-Laurie romance was "inevitable," the bumps ahead in their relationship and just why Byrd wanted no say in picking his body double....
