TLC cancels 'Honey Boo Boo'

1 hour ago

There goes Honey Boo Boo. TLC has abruptly canceled its polarizing reality sensation after co-star "Mama June" Shannon allegedly started dating a convicted child molester. Earlier this week TMZ first reported that Shannon had started dating Mark McDaniel, who was convicted in 2004 of aggravated child molestation of an 8 year old. After the report, members of Shannon's family denied the two were together -- saying the two had not dated in 10 years and that Shannon was "all about the kids" these days. But TLC became convinced the claim was accurate and executives pulled the plug on the reality series early Friday. »

12 hours ago

A few weeks ago I wished for a Project Runway with tweens, and then I got my wish in Project Runway: Threads. (I really should put my wishing powers to better use, but I can't complain about getting Christian Siriano back on the small screen.) Threads, the fourth spin-off of the franchise, is like Runway Lite. Each week, three tween aspiring designers will face off with two challenges; the first is a look that they prepared at home for immediate judging, the second is a typical "here are the rules, now go; oh, wait, there's more" challenge. The winner »

An unconscious Jason Schwartzman guest-stars on 'Tim & Eric's Bedtime Stories'

16 hours ago

On tonight's installment of the off-kilter anthology series Tim & Eric's Bedtime Stories, Jason Schwartzman guest-stars as himself, reluctantly agreeing to endorse a watch—with the unusual stipulation that he won't actually be conscious for the photo shoot or have any memory of it because he doesn't want it to ruin his credibility. We found his performance opposite Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim to be rather limp, but see for yourself in this exclusive scene from the episode, which airs at tonight at 12:15 a.m. on Adult Swim.   »

Kelley from 'Survivor' reveals who cooked all the rice

23 hours ago

No wonder Hunahpu has won every single Survivor immunity challenge they have tried to win this season (Drew intentionally lost one because he is a moron) — it's because they were eating twice as much rice as the other tribe. As a result, the folks stuck on Hunahpu will have to strike some sort of bargain with Jeff Probst next week to replenish their practically non-existent food supply. What will it cost them? We'll find out next Wednesday. But whose fault is it? Who kept insisting on cooking all of that rice? We asked the latest person voted out (and a former Hunahpuian), Kelley Wentworth, »
