Meme: Riding Sebastian Stan Like a Mechanical Bull, Freddie Mercury Movie Loses Director, Tina Fey Says No More “Mean Girls”

Everyone hates their cable bill. Mine for Internet, cable, and alarm was $194 last month, and I don’t have any premiums. But what makes it that high? Probably channels that you don’t watch, like Espn, which clocks in at $5.54 of your bill each month, though the next closest is TNT at $1.33. Yet I don’t watch sports. I have no idea what channel Espn is on, and yet I can’t opt out of the sports package.
Reno 911!’s Thomas Lennon has been cast as the neat freak Felix in Matthew Perry’s remake of The Odd Couple. Felix always read gay of course, and Lennon has a tendency to play characters that way, so I do »

A day after committing to three seasons of The Big Bang Theory, CBS has renewed 18 shows, which leaves only The Mentalist, Intelligence and, most worrisome, The Crazy Ones with their fates undetermined.
John Cho will star opposite Karen Gillan in the ABC comedy pilot Selfie, about a woman who starts over after being the star of a humiliating viral video. Cho will play an expert she hires to help rehabilitate her reputation.
Don’t care about the source, I just want to keep my John Cho delivery system working.
Syfy has ordered its first mini-series since 2009, according to The Hollywood Reporter — and it’s a return to a series set in space. Ascension is described as “part Battlestar (Galatica) and part Downton Abbey,” and follows a space shuttle that was secretly sent on a mission to find a world that can be colonized back in 1963. If the mini-series is successful, »

TV Line has a behind-the-scenes look at nest week’s 100th episode of Glee.
A lot has been written over the decades about murder victim Kitty Genovese and how accurate the “bystander effect” was, but I had no idea that Kitty was a lesbian, and on her way home to her partner when she was attacked.
Ezra Klein defends his hiring of Brandon Ambrosino. “I don’t want to pretend that I have the context and the background to perfectly or authoritatively judge this debate,” Klein said. “But when I read his pieces, I didn’t come away with the impression that he holds an iota of homophobia.” Oh Ezra, you are officially off my long »
Watch! Lance Bass Is Well Meaning In This Eye-Rolling Equality PSA
16 hours ago
But sometimes …
In this well-meaning but cringy PSA for Southeners For The Freedom To Marry, he and fiancé Michael Turchin talk about their love for Mississippi and the lack of hostility they’ve encountered.
“People do support gay marriage. They really do. I mean, we’re here. Our feet are planted here in Mississippi, and we can tell you from experience that there’s tons of support down here. It’s just that confusion. I think everyone deserves that freedom to marry, that freedom to love who you want to love, and that’s much supported down here!”
Lance, is it possible that’s because you’re rich, white, and famous?

First Look: How Straightwashed Will NBC’s “Constantine” Be?
18 hours ago
Based on the characters in DC Comics’ John Constantine stories, the Warner Bros.-produced project centers on John Constantine (Ryan), an enigmatic and irreverent con man-turned-reluctant supernatural detective who is thrust into the role of defending us against dark forces from beyond
In the comics, Constantine is bisexual (although he much prefers oysters to snails), so it’ll be interesting to see if NBC has the guts to go there. There may be an indication in that one of the writers and exec. producers is David S. Goyer, who gave us DaVinci’s Demons.

Sami and Adrienne “discuss” the WilSon wedding. Oh dear.
Ciara is whining about Bo not coming home. Hope tells her “Well, sweetie, maybe if you weren’t such an insufferable brat, he’d still love you and want to come home.” Well … she doesn’t say that, but it’s what we were all thinking. Shaved Baboon Jr. comes in and hilariously mocks her for crying, until he gets pushed won by Ciara.
Will comes in to the apartment and Sonny tells him not to take his coat off, because they have to leave their moms to plan the wedding. Right now Will is regretting the whole Coming Out thing.
Abby had a terrifying David Cronenberg-esque nightmare yesterday about Ej’s Evil Gyno, and she refuses to have anything to do with him.

Seth Rogen says that one scene that’s missing from The Neighbors is why the frat moves into the house next door to his character. They filmed it, but cut it for time. “They burned down the old house. We filmed the scene. They are having a civil war reenactment and have lined the pledges in two lines with their asses out. They shoved fireworks in their asses and have a battle with the pledges with fireworks up their asses. An errant firework goes into the house and burns the house down. We cut it for time.” So…DVD extras?
Sony is planning on remaking My Best Friend’s Wedding in Chinese to support the local market. This is a very gay movie, and China is a mixed bag on gay rights. »

“King of the Nerds” Crowns a Winner, Adrian Pasdar Joins “S.H.I.E.L.D.” and “The Big Bang Theory” Will Be Around Until 2017
13 March 2014 5:05 AM, PDT
A&E has pulled Those Who Kill from the schedule after two weeks. The crime drama has failed to hold onto the audience of its lead-in Bates Motel. However, A&E isn’t cancelling the show yet, the channel plans on relaunching the show.
CBS has renewed The Big Bang Theory for three seasons. That will keep the show on the air until the spring of 2017.
This works as a still from tonight’s episode or as a group reaction to the renewal.
If you want to see the best challenges in reality TV you should be watching the amazing King of the Nerds, which airs its finale tonight. Then again, it’s impossible to do any better than to have a “navigate a laser maze to rescue George Takei” challenge.

Happy Birthday Liza! Let’s Relive Her Greatest 80′s Moment
12 March 2014 11:52 AM, PDT
Liza! Today is her 68th birthday, and she’s so many things – An arguable Egot winner (she has an honorary Grammy, but has never won in the competitive category. Does that count toward the Egot? Discuss!), Ellen target, true Hollywood icon, crazed spider monkey … survivor.
But the one thing she’s never been able to accomplish is having an entry on the Billboard Hot 100 (the closest she came was when “New York New York” bubbled under at #104.) That should have changed in 1989 when she released one of the most underrated and unfairly maligned albums of the decade, Results.
Produced by The Pet Shop Boys (who had just helped propel the comeback of another icon, Dusty Springfield), Results was a dance album that showed that Liza was game for anything, and having the time of her life.
Unfortunately, while the album did well in the UK (hitting the top ten), it flopped in the U. »
Billy Eichner Back “On The Street” And Why Travolta “Is Our Liberace”
12 March 2014 9:52 AM, PDT
Billy Eichner tirelessly working the streets of Manhattan (to our amusement)
If anyone can get away with running through the streets of Manhattan getting strangers to do everything from naming white celebrities to telling Olivia Wilde to her face that she’s “pretty for a single dollar bill”, it’s Billy Eichner.
The out comedian/producer/actor has been building a fan base over the past few years with his popular videos and appearances on shows like Conan, The Wendy Williams Show as well as voice work on Fox’s Bob’s Burgers.
Even he will admit that it’s not too difficult these days to get big names to appear on his game show, Funny Or Die’s Billy On The Street, which returns for a third season of episodes tonight on Fuse. This season alone, a cavalcade of guest stars include Rachel Dratch, Lena Dunham, Neil Patrick Harris, »

Nothing But Nets: Jason Collins Signed For Season
12 March 2014 8:47 AM, PDT
Espn is reporting that The Brooklyn nets will sign Jason Collins for the remainder of the season.
Sources say that the internal expectation all along was that Collins would be a Net for the rest of the season, from the moment he signed his first 10-day deal, as long he proved that he could still be an effective defender, which he did immediately.

“Glee” 5.11: Second Place is the First Loser
12 March 2014 8:23 AM, PDT
Previously on Glee, New Directions prepared for Nationals by saying the word “Nationals” a hundred times a day, while Sue tiptoed around in the background peeking around corners and twirling her handlebar mustache and promising to tie Mr. Schue to some rail road tracks if he didn’t bring home the big trophy. Blaine and Tina and Sam and Artie felt really sad about leaving McKinley, a deep, deep sadness that took root in the choir room and grew a grief tree as big as a Redwood that they watered with their tears and nostalgia all the years of the senior year of their life. And something about something with Marley and Ryder and Jake.
It’s Nationals time, for real, which means Mr. Schue has decided to start doing choir director stuff. His first order of business is to call Sam into his office and tell him he’s the new Finn, »

“Game of Thrones” Plans Its End Date, Billy Eichner is Back “On the Street” and “Nashville” Wants More Oliver Hudson
12 March 2014 4:56 AM, PDT
CBS has set up a site for fans of How I Met Your Mother to send a farewell message through various social media sites. The collection of sentiment is enough to make me stop muttering about how the comedy should have ended seasons ago.
Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss tell EW that they see a seven-season run for the fantasy drama. “Seven gods, seven kingdoms, seven seasons. It feels right to us.” I’d find that comforting, but that also leaves a good amount of time for things to go wrong.
Then again, how wrong can things get as long as Lady Olenna keeps dropping the quips.
Based on my experience with The Vampire Diaries, my reaction to hearing about the surprise departure on The Originals was a shrug, but that’s based entirely on how irritating the character was on The Vampire Diaries. For »

Last Night on “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”: Watch Out Boys, She’ll Chew You Up

An escaped Asgardian prisoner comes to Earth to make an empire for herself. Lady Sif is on her trail, and she enlists the aid of S.H.I.E.L.D. in the hunt. Jaime Alexander guest stars!
Wow, last week you guys schooled me and you schooled me hard. I am very grateful! My comic lore is solid up to about the 90’s and then it gets very sketchy. I sort of remembered Amora had a sister, but not really. And I totally forgot how human the Kree look. So, thanks to everyone for helping me to get my facts straight.
So, okay, Lorelei, who is a real live actual Marvel character, has escaped her prison and come to Earth because she wants to make a kingdom for herself to rule. Honestly, I’m not sure she could possibly screw up the U.S. more than it already is, »

Meme: Jake Gyllenhaal Pitches a Tent Naked, Linda Harvey Calls Gay Sex “Anatomically Challenged,” Honest Trailers Takes On “Frozen”
12 March 2014 3:43 AM, PDT
Jake Gyllenhaal is bare-assed Nsfw naked, pitching a tent and banging on pots and pans for some movie, and wearing a ridiculously large privacy pouch held on with gorilla tape. What’s he packing to need that much restraint.
With Digital Streaker, you can outfit your hirsute bear with a modesty token (I’m partial to the shuttlecock), then point him at your favorite homepage (might I suggest TheBacklot.com) and he’ll run back and forth across your screen.
Here are 15 comics for people trying to explain what it means to be queer, and it’s a lot more complex than Lgbtq.

Sex Box! The British reality show is being adapted for We TV. “In Sex Box, real couples whose relationships are on the rocks enter a soundproof box to have sex and, upon exit, immediately address their issues with a panel of experts.” Okay, Brit readers, what’s your verdict (and don’t tell me you haven’t watched). And have they ever had same sex couples?
