Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon: Day 11 - HitFix Picks

30 August 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

[As you probably already know, starting on Thursday, August 21, Fxx is running the Every Simpsons Ever Marathon, running through all 552 episodes of "The Simpsons," plus "The Simpsons Movie." To aid in your viewing process, Team HitFix is selecting our favorite episodes from each day, plus an episode or two that you can skip and use as a bathroom or nap break.] We're nearing the end! Day 11 of Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon takes us from "The Greatest Story Ever D'ohed" (mid-Season 21) through "Beware My Cheating Bart" (late-Season 23). Personally, I was shocked to see at least one or two episodes in this period that I haven't seen, as well as a lot of episodes I haven't seen multiple times, which was almost unheard-of for the first eight or nine days of the Marathon. But we still have preferences for you. Yup! We're gonna make it through this whole darned Marathon, for which we're unlikely to receive a prize. But we've got commitment.  [Oh and the episode guest-starring Katy Perry is "The Fight Before Christmas," airing at 7:30 a.m. It was neither good nor bad enough to get mentioned here, but it makes for a good picture.] Check out our recommendations for Day 10 and chime in with your own favorites... Katie Hasty Recommends: "The Bob Next Door" (3 a.m.) Episode #463 Why it's worth watching: The best Sideshow Bob is an evil Sideshow Bob. And the best kind of Nicolas Cage movie is "Face/Off."

Thought Idol doesn't return to Fox until January, we've already got your exclusive first look at season 14, which features the crooner spontaneously joining Jess, who just received the seal of approval from all three judges, behind the piano during her audition in Kansas City.

And it seems his fellow judges enjoyed his impromptu performance with Jess just as much as we did as Keith Urban is totally »

Emmys poll: Who should host in 2015?

26 August 2014 10:49 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Hosting a major awards show is a thankless task. Just ask David Letterman and Seth MacFarlane. (Don’t even bother asking James Franco.) Seth Meyers, who won almost unanimous praise for hosting the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in 2011, received mixed reviews in his first stint as Emmy host Monday night, with his hometown tabloid detractors pointing to a perception of passiveness that yielded the stage to other, more dynamic performers. But perhaps he should be commended for sharing the spotlight so generously, letting others shine, and keeping the three-hour show moving. Nothing wrong with getting by with a little help from one’s friends, »

Keith Urban Celebrates Duet with Miranda Lambert - without Miranda Lambert

26 August 2014 6:40 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

"We Were Us" was the one that almost got away from Keith Urban. Instead, his duet with Miranda Lambert became a very sweet 16th No. 1 single, celebrated with writers Nicolle Galyon, Jon Nite and Jimmy Robbins at a high noon Music Row party in Nashville on Monday. Composed as a duet, the song was first intended for an unnamed female artist, according to Gaylon, who said: "We heard through the grapevine that she was kind of looking for a duet for her record, so we kind of wrote it for that, but somehow it made it into Keith's hands before »

Jennifer Lopez Spotted with Ex Casper Smart at the VMAs

25 August 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Because if anything can unite a pair of exes, it's probably candy, right? Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart sparked rumors of a potentially rekindled romance when attendees at Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards spotted them sharing what appeared to be a bag of sweets. (Watch Smart hand Lopez some of his treats in the video below.) The two haven't been sweethearts since June, when Lopez, 45, split from the choreographer and dancer after dating for 2½ years. But don't start drawing hearts around them just yet: Smart wasn't there as Lopez's date, but to support Nicki Minaj, whom he choreographed. (Lopez presented »

Rising Star Season 1 Finale Recap: And the 'Winner' Is…

25 August 2014 7:06 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

“Mr. Groban, tear down this wall!”

Trust me, I’m as surprised as anybody that I’ve managed to rework a famous quote from President Ronald Reagan into an intro for a reality TV recap. But just as the Berlin Wall fueled The Gipper’s ire, so too has ABC’s Rising Star — with its cumbersome “interactive wall” setup, questionable casting and tiresome “experts” — threatened the sanctity of my love for singing competitions.

MTV Video Music Awards 2014 Live-Blog

24 August 2014 5:58 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome, friends, to HitFix's MTV Video Music Awards 2014 live-blog.  Earlier today I was watching Fxx's Every Simpsons Ever Marathon and it was the "Homerpalooza" episode, which begins with Homer lamenting that he's no longer hip to the contemporary music scene.  Marge tells him not to worry. "Record stores have always seemed crazy to me," she declares. "Music is none of my business." Well, music is none of my business. Artists who aren't "American Idol" veterans or who haven't appeared on "American Idol" are none of my business. Actually, I take that back. I also know people who were on "X Factor," which is why I know who Fifth Harmony and Demi Lovato are.  But with HitFix's actual qualified music staffers doing breakout stories and reviews of performances, I get to do a live-blog even though I know who none of these people are. Follow along and make fun of my musical ignorance. »

Pop star Kelly Clarkson accepted the Als Ice Bucket Challenge this week, making her first appearance since giving birth to her daughter River Rose with husband Brandon Blackstock.

Kelly Clarkson Takes Als Ice Bucket Challenge

Clarkson and Blackstock teamed up to do the Als Ice Bucket Challenge after getting nominated a number of times. “Hey this is Kelly Clarkson!

Post by Kelly Clarkson.

Clarkson was hesitant to lift the large bucket over her head, saying, "I hope I can lift the bucket because it's really heavy." Eventually, both Clarkson and Blackstock completed the challenge.
