The corporate world can be Hell, but according to Adult Swim’s horror sitcom "Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell," Hell is a lot like the corporate world. Filled with demon bosses, deadlines, and cubicles of doom.
As the series' season finale, “People in Hell Want Ice Water,” approaches at the stroke of midnight tonight (5/23), it was about time we got a bit of insight into the men behind the madness and red face paint. The show’s creators, Dave Willis and Casper Kelly, alums of Adult Swim series "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" and "Squidbillies," and cast members Matt Servitto ("The Sopranos," "The Mentalist"), Craig Rowan ("College Humor Originals," "The Onion Sportsdome"), and Henry Zebrowski ("Girls," Martin Scorsese’s upcoming The Wolf of Wall Street) sat down to discuss the origins of their diabolically funny series.
The show’s creation, according to Kelly, came from an earlier Kelly/Willis »

Would it really be a surprise to find out that hell is just a terrible office job?
Adult Swim's newest live-action offering, "Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell," imagines a world in which demons are just regular saps, climbing the corporate ladder like the rest of us. Comedian Henry Zebrowski stars as Gary, an associate demon, who tries his best to make it in the underworld in the first-look video above.

Oof, I did not think Lazaro sounded very good tonight. »

After how weak the men were last week and the ridiculous pick of Zoanette last night, we are kind of dreading "American Idol" tonight, fans. Let's hope this final group in Las Vegas can be as strong as the first round of women.
The judges are introduced and once again, Mariah Carey has on a very low-cut top. You'd think after her nip slip, she'd rein those puppies in a little better.
1. Mathenee Treco, "A Little Less Conversation," Elvis
This is a really fun song, but it's not a song for a vocalist. The melody has about four notes and the lyrics are too fast, plus he has slowed it down, which does make the lyrics a little easier to understand, but it makes the song lose a lot of its fun swagger. This is very karaoke and his falsetto stuff is all over the place. This should (hopefully) not »
American Idol revealed the top 20 semifinalists in Vegas on Thursday night, but not before cutting loose another five male singers during the fourth and final sudden death round. Warning: Spoilers Ahead. Here's who got the boot: "Turbanator" Gurpreet Singh Sarin; earnest Bryant Tadeo; sweet David Willis; bro-y Mathenee Treco, and ambitious singer-songwriter Josh Holiday, who could totally be the physical and spiritual love child of David Cook and Kris Allen with his strategically gelled hair and courtly manner. And here's who made the cut: vocal powerhouse Vincent Powell; sensitive Lazaro Arbos; clear-voiced Nick Boddington; judge favorite Burnell Taylor and, last but not least, the genetically blessed Cortez

"I know we are at war with each other. How could you not be in this crazy, upside-down world? A world where on one corner you can get gourmet coffee, and in an apartment right above that someone's being raped for the last thirty years. How do you reconcile that? Unless the coffee is horrible …" –Eddie Pepitone
Greetings from the apocalypse! So, February … Is this almost over? Seriously, Unicef needs to airdrop a good movies aid package on us pronto before our entertainment-emaciated minds starve to the point where a Dwayne Johnson flick actually seems like a good call. Speaking of which …

Ever had to kill a bunch of drug cartel bad guys in order to get your son out of jail? Dwayne Johnson has, at least in his new flick "Snitch" out today in theaters. The wrestler sometimes known under his weightier stage name The Rock, Johnson »

American Idol really, really wants a woman to win this season. At the beginning of Thursday's episode, they reminded us that a female singer hasn't won the show since 2007, when Jordin Sparks bested Blake Lewis for the top prize. Let's put this into perspective: The last time a woman won, George W. Bush was still president, J.K. Rowling was still writing the Harry Potter series, and no one had any idea who Snooki was. Well, maybe a few people knew her. After Ryan Seacrest all but begged us to vote for a female, we finally got to see the level of the women's talent. »

Spoilers Ahead. If you haven’t seen tonight’s Idol, don’t read on.
Or maybe you did anyway. Hi! Honestly, that hour-long “girls solo round” episode did not totally deliver on Idol’s promise of a big Top 40 reveal. No names were shown at the end, and so many of the 20 guys and 20 guys remaining are people who have yet to be highlighted on the show! But anyway, here they are….
Top 20 Girls

Thirty-nine talented young singers stand on the precipice of superstardom. And so does one kinda crazy chick who has only one drum stick (musical, not chicken) as well as the potential to turn American Idol bandleader Ray Chew’s job into the kind of situation that might pique renewed interest in a revival of Discovery Channel’s recently departed Dirty Jobs.
Yes indeed, tonight’s final installment of Season 12 Hollywood Week put the women through their final paces, narrowed their numbers to a lean 20, and — if the “we need a girl to win this year, Please!” intro is to be »

It's been a long and sometimes tear-filled journey for the men of American Idol. They've survived auditions, sudden death eliminations, Group Rounds, and tonight they'll sing their final solo number for the judges.
Who will be left standing? Let's find out now...
Cuts will be made after every 8th performance.
Leading off the solo round is Paul Jolley who's quite nervous. So nervous he nearly cries before he can even sing and Mariah has to remind him to breathe. He's not able to overcome his nerves and Nicki calls his lack of confidence a "turn off" and unprofessional.
Lazaro Arbos is the second to sing and chooses Lady Gaga's "Edge of Glory." Curtis Finch, Jr., sings "Jar of Hearts" and his theatrics distract from what could be an otherwise interesting arrangement of the number.
From the first group, Lazaro, Paul, and Curtis all move on. We might only be »

In the spirit of National Beyoncé Week — brought to you by the National Football League, the United States Congress, the Internet and the House of Dereon — I begin this American Idol recap with the bastardization of a famous lyric from the Artist Occasionally Known as Sasha Fierce:
“To the left, to the left. All the lady Idols in the holding pen to the left.”
Yes, folks, I’m still trying to sort out my feelings about one of the biggest changes to the show’s structure since my early days of recapping Fox’s reality behemoth — back when I identified with #TeamBo over #TeamCarrie. »

The stakes were high as American Idol contestants converged on Hollywood to see if they have what it takes to be the next winner, as Ryan promised this judging panel would be one of the toughest we've ever seen.
They'll whittle down and weed out those who don't make the grade and at the end. Who'll be left standing? Let's find out now...
In addition to shaking up the judging panel this year, American Idol producers have also shaken up the competition. Instead of bringing all the contestants to Hollywood at the same time, they've opted to separate this round.
That's right--the first edition of Hollywood week is guys only. No girls allowed. (Except Nicki and Mariah, of course.)
The first round of Hollywood Week is the sudden death a capella round. In addition to impressing the judges, their families are in the balcony watching. The pressure is high as they take the stage. »

Chicago – Not content to stand on its status as one of the top tier and weirdest animated series on TV, the season four premiere of “Archer” begins with a premise that redefines the term crossover. The new season of “Archer” begins on FX on January 17th, at 10pm Et/9pm Ct.
Television Rating: 5.0/5.0
The gang at the international spy agency Isis is back for more adventures, anchored by the Spy Who Has a Mother Complex, the amazing Sterling Archer. The comic zeitgeist of the series is that everything that makes an international spy agency cool – suave, cocktail swilling, lady killer spies – is exploited for laughs within the reality of office politics, modern sexuality and bureaucracy. Each of the characters has a nutty personality complex that milk laughs, and as a group they are freaking hilarious. Nobody does it better, to quote steal from another popular spy series.
Season four opens »
