The real climax of this season happened last week in “Birth,” when Vivien joined the murder house’s collection of ghosts after the apocalyptic delivery of her twins. We were led to believe that one was stillborn, but the other, healthier one went straight into the care of crazy Constance as Ben was left to sort out his life all alone, as Vivien and Violet settle into eternity among the house’s ephemeral residents.
This week’s installment, »

Warning: The following recap, by definition, contains spoilers from the Season 1 finale of FX’s American Horror Story.
The Harmons extract themselves from that Murder House about as well as Michael Corleone gets out of the organized crime biz.
The Season 1 finale of FX’s (already renewed) American Horror Story, titled “Afterbirth,” dealt with the aftermath of Vivien giving birth to her and Ben’s stillborn child and the “demon baby” sired by ghost boy Tate, then succumbing to fatal amounts of blood loss and trauma herself.
But first, viewers were given a “Nine Months Ago” flashback to Ben and Vivien’s Boston existence, »

Most Christmas songs exist as part of our collective unconsciousness, so we don't exactly put a magnifying glass to the lyrics to examine them for logical integrity. (Although, is logical integrity truly not what the Christmas season is all about?) But last night on "Conan," Patton Oswalt tore apart "The Little Drummer Boy," and came to the conclusion that the song makes no damn sense. At all.
"I have a two and a half year old daughter, and I never go, 'She will not settle down and go to sleep. Does anyone have a percussion instrument? Or half a can of coffee beans I can shake in her face?'" Patton joked, referring to the Drummer Boy in the song playing his drum to lull the baby Jesus to sleep. "Where were you when my baby had the croup, Neil Peart?!"
This isn't the first time Patton mercilessly took apart a Christmas standard. »

Having grown up on the Rankin Bass Christmas specials since I was a child, the Yuletide season just isn't the same without a yearly viewing of some of their most enchanting shows. Since the 1960s and 1970s, specials such as Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town, The Little Drummer Boy and The Year Without a Santa Claus were shown on the major television networks. In the late 1980s it became increasingly difficult to see most of these specials unless you had cable television or video cassette recorders as the major networks stopped airing them. With the availability of home video, the shows were inevitably made available to the masses and made great Christmas presents.
The fine folks at Classic Media have released some of these beloved Christmas classics on Blu-ray. In a two-disc set entitled The Original Christmas Classics, »

Lights, camera, Justin Bieber. Christmas has come to Rockefeller Center. The traditional tree-lighting ceremony, the 79th annual, in the midtown Manhattan destination was a cautiously paced, all-star event Wednesday night, with carols delivered by the likes of Bieber, who essentially headlined the event, Michael Bublé (singing "I'll Be Home for Christmas"), Cee Lo Green, Neil Diamond, Carole King, Katharine McPhee and Tony Bennett (the traditional "White Christmas"). Mariah Carey was also seen in a debut video duet with Bieber, for her "All I Want for Christmas." The number resembled a big-budget department-store commercial, although the video's quick cuts made it »

For better or for worse, the holiday season is finally upon us. To many that means gritting our teeth and bracing ourselves against the onslaught as we enter into the traditional holiday shopping fray. It doesn't take much to make one tense up at the thought of interminable line-ups in overfull malls, endless searches for that perfect gift or bauble, or that moment when we all inevitably find ourselves singing along to The Little Drummer Boy for the millionth time in an hour. But don't lose your spirit just yet! There are many less stressful ways to experience the best of the season and at the top of that list is sitting down to watch favourite classic holiday movies with family and friends.
But what exactly makes for a fantastic holiday film? The big screen ventures in question must contain a number of important ingredients to capture the spirit of the holidays on film. »

Justin Bieber may be a skinny teenage pop singer from Canada, but seemingly every famous rapper currently in the game has nevertheless been clamoring to work with him lately. Hmm, now what could be the rea$on for that? Bieb's latest hip-hop collaborator is none other than Busta Rhymes, the lightning-quick rapper who guests on his new single "Drummer Boy", a club version of the old Yuletide standard "The Little Drummer Boy". While I actually find the song kind of grating, what with its heavily-processed vocals, warmed-over dance beats and ridiculous lyrics like "Playing for the king/Playing for the title/I'm surprised you didn't hear »

The Christmas season may still be more than two months away, but Justin Bieber is getting into the holiday spirit early with the release of the video for his new song, "Mistletoe."
The video was shot in Franklin, Tenn., by "One Less Lonely Girl" director Roman White and features Bieber decked out in holiday finery and frolicking in the snow as he sings about spending time under the mistletoe with his "shawty."
The song is the first single from The Bieb's upcoming album, "Under the Mistletoe." The album features his versions of holiday favorites, including "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" and "The Little Drummer Boy," along with some updated songs, like Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas." There are also cameos from Usher, Boys II Men and Busta Rhymes, among others.
