Going The Distance (Blu-ray)Warner/New Line Home Video2010/Rated R/Running Time 103 minsList Price $35.99 – Now AvailableGoing the Distance was one of the last surprises of what was a mediocre summer for 2010. The Drew Barrymore and Justin Long romantic comedy treats the subject of a long distance relationship in a manner that's sweet, hilarious and surprisingly mature. No doubt the picture's strong suit is the onscreen relationship between its two leads and that's obviously due in large part to the fact that they were once a real life couple. But their onscreen love story is given hilarious support by SNL's Jason Sudeikis, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia's Charlie Day and a genuinely funny Christina Applegate as Barrymore's over-protective older sibling.Even if you've never been in a long distance relationship we can all certainly relate to it. You're unexpectedly driven apart from your significant other or develop feelings »
This Week in DVD & Blu-ray is a column that compiles all the latest info regarding new DVD and Blu-ray releases, sales, and exclusive deals from stores including Target, Best Buy and Fry’s. Archer (Season 1) Much like its FX counterpart, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Archer is a show about horrible people doing horrible things. Premised as a '60s spy thriller spoof, the series adopts the same irreverent brand of humor we've come to expect from creator Adam Reed (Frisky Dingo, Sealab 2021), thrusting our deviant band of self-obsessed special agents through the ringer as they spout fiercely clever/cleverly stupid insults at one another and zanily stumble through mission after mission—with varying degrees of blood loss. It's everything loyal fans like myself came to love about Frisky Dingo, just with a tad bit more (very welcome) narrative structure. If you aren't watching it, you should be. Available on Blu-ray? »

Happy Festivus, everyone! To celebrate today (in addition to the feats of strength and airing of grievances), I rounded up the top 10 nontraditional Holiday television episodes over at The Daily Beast, from Community and Seinfeld to Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Doctor Who. (And, yes, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's direct-to-dvd special--which just aired on FX for the first time this month--made the list, naturally.) An aside, I could have filled the entire list with just British television shows, from The Vicar of Dibley and Doctor Who (which both made the list) to Gavin & Stacey, Blackadder, Catherine Tate, Absolutely Fabulous, and about a zillion others. But I am curious to know: what is your favorite nontraditional holiday episode/special? Putting aside the traditional Rudolph and Charlie Brown Christmas, what are some of the more out there holiday episodes or specials that add that extra spike to the eggnog? Or »
There are three young-couples-hanging-out comedies coming to a broadcast network near you sometime in 2011, and on the surface it's hard to tell them apart. We've been confusing bits and pieces of "Perfect Couples," "Happy Endings" and "Friends With Benefits" in the Zap2it offices pretty much since they were announced in May.
"Perfect Couples," which has its regular premiere on NBC on Jan. 20, got to be first out of the gate with a "special preview" episode (i.e., one that won't count toward its season ratings) after "The Sing-Off" finale on Monday (Dec. 20). And while the show is clearly still finding its footing, there looks to be enough raw material there to make "Perfect Couples," if not an instantly vital cog in NBC's Thursday comedy lineup, at least a reason to stay put between "Community" and "The Office."
The episode NBC aired Monday -- in hopes of taking advantage of »
FX is not putting a lot of faith in its dog-related programming these days.
But only for a few hours. FX yanked the clip from YouTube on "copyright grounds" -- which is a shame, because it's kind of awesome.
A remake of an Australian series of the same name, "Wilfred" follows a suicidal man (Wood), who finds new life through a friendship with his neighbor's dog, Wilfred (played by Jason Gann, who originated the role in the Australian version). To the world, Wilfred is a dog. But to Wood, he's a surly Australian man in a dog suit.
After showing Wood's attempt at taking his own life, and his multiple suicide note revisions, the trailer shows various dog activities -- belly scratching, licking, car-chasing -- seen through Wood's eyes. »
NBC is so hopeful that their new mid-season comedy Perfect Couples will live up to the front half of its name that the network will air a special sneak preview of the series at 10pm tonight, after the finale of The Sing-Off.
The episode tonight will not be the pilot, but instead the episode "Perfect Tens," which NBC execs felt was one of the season's strongest, reports Variety. After airing tonight, the series will move to 8:30pm on Thursdays as part of NBC's new six-show, three-hour comedy block.
The series is about three couples who are clearly far less than perfect (except for each other, says the promo voiceover) and each deal in their own special form of dysfunction. Dave (Kyle Bornheimer) and Julia (Christine Woods, Flash Forward) are the most normal duo who act as the bridge between their pairs of friends at two extremes: Vance (David Walton) and Amy (Mary Elizabeth Ellis, »
"Don't ask, don't tell" (Dadt), a 17-year-old bill passed during the Bill Clinton Administration, which many believed represented a severe step back for gay rights and the civil rights movement has been repealed, according to the Washington Post.
"This victory belongs to all who fought to end #Dadt," tweeted President Barack Obama. "Let our allies in Congress know how grateful we are for their help."
Dadt, which forbid gay soldiers in the United States military from serving openly, was struck down in the U.S. Senate on Saturday, Dec. 18. It was a decisive vote of 65 to 31, with eight Republicans crossing the aisle to join 57 Democrats.
"Can't hold back the tears+pride," tweeted Lady Gaga, who had been using her pop star status to campaign for the bill's repeal. "We did it! Our voice was heard + today the Senate Repealed Dadt. A triumph for equality after 17 Years."
Gaga is joined by other celebrities, »
Update 12/17: NBC has rethought its scheduling a little bit. "The Sing-Off" finale will stay at two hours, and the "Perfect Couples" preview will air at 10 p.m. Monday. An "Office" repeat will air at 10:30.
The original post is below.
NBC is expanding the season finale of "The Sing-Off" by a half-hour -- and hoping you stick around for a preview of one of its new shows after that.
The network will air an episode of its new comedy "Perfect Couples" at 10:30 p.m. Et on Monday (Dec. 20), following the crowning of the "Sing-Off" champion. The show will become part of NBC's all-comedy lineup on Thursdays starting in January.
"The Sing-Off" has performed solidly in its December run this year, averaging about 8.5 million viewers per episode and a 2.9 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic. Both figures are significantly higher than those of "Community," which will be the lead-in for "Perfect Couples" come Jan. »
Any one of Penny's dates — Leonard expected — would be the last person with whom the guys would have anything in common, let alone befriend. However, they do find a perfect reason when they ask her latest buff boyfriend to help them by joining them in a costume contest in which they're entering as members of the Justice League. — Bill Ecklund

I try to keep Twitter-Wood chiefly focused on movies-related tweets, but today Quinton Aaron of "The Blind Side" post a pic from his first week shooting on "One Tree Hill" and Gillian Jacobs got up close and personal with her favorite bathroom door on the "Community" set, so certain allowances had to be made.
Outside of TV Land, Rose McGowan reacted to insinuations that people out there are dying from attempting to strap guns to their legs, while Danny DeVito offered advice about weed and pets, and Brian Lynch polled his followers with an important question related to Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson's breakup. See what he asked down below, along with what Kat Dennings has been dreaming about lately.

Major networks are always churning out sitcoms, but sometimes you have to dig a little deeper to get to the really funny stuff. Let's face it: on cable, writers are able to get away with more indecency and dark humor (prime example: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia). These series definitely pushed the proverbial envelope this year and had us laughing hard. Which is your 2010 favorite? Don't forget to vote on our Best of 2010 polls!

It looks like last night's episode of It's Always Sunny, "Dee Gives Birth" will serve as the season finale. I know, I know. FX promised us thirteen episodes, but it appears that the thirteenth episode will just be an edited airing of the already released "A Very Sunny Christmas."
I hope I'm wrong.
But if last night's episode was the finale, it was a very fitting, full-circle ending to the season. This overall arc has been about Dee's completely ignored pregnancy, and it was kind of nice to see the guys exert effort in order to find the father, even if it was for selfish reasons again.
Last time? They were concerned one of them was the birth father. This round? To make sure they wouldn't be the surrogate fathers, in the Three Men and a Baby sense.

Spike TV's 2010 Video Game Awards, which air live this Saturday, December 11, have been stirring up reports and rumors of new game debuts for a few weeks now. Guillermo del Toro's Thq project entered the fray last month, and "Batman: Arkham City" followed soon thereafter. Now, Geoff Keighley's revealed that "Thor: God of Thunder" will be showing off a first look, and "Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions" voice actor and "How I Met Your Mother" star Neil Patrick Harris has been announced as the event's host.
Comedian Dane Cook, and "Thor" actor Chris Hemsworth will also be making Vga appearances, according to an Associated Press report (via the Wall Street Journal), and if that's still not enough star power for you, Tony Hawk and a delegation from "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" including Danny Devito, Kaitlin Olson and Rob McElhenney are slated to be there too.

This may not be the best season of It's Always Sunny, but it's certainly been one of the most adventurous. I can't remember a previous season where they've spent so little time at the bar, let alone took an adventure to Atlantic City where "The Gang Gets Stranded in the Woods."
Overall, this week's installment wasn't the funniest of the season, but easily one of our favorite due to a very strong A story and a fun plot line that tied the two stories perfectly together at the end.
We'll talk about the A story first. First off, Charlie and Dennis need to be partnered up more often. Dennis, who is probably the worst human being of the group (and that's saying something!) was a hilariously bad influence on the easily manipulated Charlie as he convinced him to say yes to everything.
That, of course, led to an amazing adventure »
