For Valentine’s Day, TV Line lists the “19 Best Kisses in TV History.” All lists are subjective, of course, but they really dropped the ball when it came to same-sex inclusion. There are two female/female kisses included (Willow/Tara and Brittany/Santana, but no Xena/Gabrielle?), but the only male/male kiss they include is … Cam and Mitch on Modern Family. Seriously? Not only is that a tepid kiss at best, it only happened because Tptb were pressured into it by fans who were sick of the pair not showing any affection (Btw, they haven’t kissed on screen since).
There are scores of gay TV kisses that should be heralded before that perfunctory peck, so in honor of February 14th, and that bare-assed guy who shoots the arrows, here are 14 of the most memorable gay TV series smooches. Pucker up!

With Her out on Valentines Day, James considers the topic of romance in the movies, and love in the techno-savvy 21st century...
Happy Valentine's Day! Hip hip hooray for the over-commercial super-sappy celebration of romance and close personal relationships! I hope that this column finds you all swept up in sweet emotions and lovely feelings. I hope that you're now breathless and gasping for air having been submerged beneath a sea of affectionate greeting cards, chocolate boxes and sexual propositions from attractive strangers.
If not, use your imagination - it's so much better than reality, especially if reality is disappointing you on Valentine's Day. Today you should be feeling the love and experiencing things that are 'romantic'. Romantic action might be quite rare for many and that probably makes this novel - albeit, suspect - cultural event all the more worthwhile. Love needs to »
About four years after dropping two long-running soap operas from its schedule, CBS Daytime seems to be clicking on all cylinders.
Its entire lineup — including more recent additions “The Talk” and “Let’s Make a Deal” — hit ratings milestones during the last week of January, lifting the network delivered to its largest audience for any frame in more than eight years, according to Nielsen data released Thursday.
Sudsers “The Young and the Restless” (5.73 million) and “The Bold and the Beautiful” (4.17 million) drew their largest audiences since February 2008 and April 2007, respectively — a time when the CBS Daytime lineup included soaps “As the World Turns” and “Guiding Light.” Top-rated “Y&R” also posted its highest score in three years among the core daytime demo of women 25-54 (2.3 rating/12 share).
“Guiding Light” exited the airwaves in September 2009 and “World” followed a year later, paving the way for chatfest “The Talk” and gameshow “Let’s Make a Deal, »

Access Hollywood talked with Finn Jones about the upcoming season of Game of Thrones. Sadly, he says, “There’s not enough hot gay sex for Loras this season.” I’m going to sit in a corner where I will think about Daenerys dispensing justice with her dragons and Lady Olenna dropping wit bombs until I’m excited about the new season.

As it turns out, there is one more mutant fans can look forward to, with newcomer Evan Jonigkeit making his feature debut as the younger Toad, who was played by martial arts expert Ray Park in the original X-Men.
When asked what he did to prepare for the role at the premiere of HBO's Girls (the actor is dating Girls star Zosia Mamet), Evan Jonigkeit said he delved into the comic books, while hinting that this sequel will tell Toad's origin story.
