I have no idea if someone had a big fat gay intervention with Ryan Murphy or he just saw the light on his own or what exactly happened over the summer, but hello, Gleeks, our show is back!
I wasn't even one of those who hated on Season Two. It had some of my favorite episodes. It had Brittana. It had Kurt and Blaine kissing. It had Santana breaking down at her locker, telling Brittany she loved her. It just didn't have consistent character development, continuity, or good plot-based excuses for all those iTunes songs.
Season Three, however and at least so far, has all those things. And last night's episode, "Asian F," also has roof-blowing-off performances by Harry Shum Jr. and Heather Morris, along with one of the best musical ensemble numbers I've ever seen on the series.
"Asian F" opens with Mercedes running into booty camp, late again. »

You can have your Yankees Vs. Tigers. Tonight’s installment of Glee featured diva against diva going head-to-head in the World Series of High-School Musical Auditions. And yeah, it was exciting enough to make me mix sports- and musical theater-metaphors with reckless abandon. If you somehow got distracted perusing Breadstix’s new delivery menu and missed the episode, please allow me to catch you up — in the classic “here’s what you missed on Glee” format:
Will found Emma’s stash of wedding mags and came clean by sharing his own embarrassing periodicals (ewwwww), but when she refused to introduce »

Entertainer Marc Anthony rang in his birthday by performing a sold-out show at Miami's American Airlines Arena.
Given his public falling out with wife Jennifer Lopez, fans showed their support for Anthony by singing "Happy Birthday" as he walked on stage. According to People.com, the singer was so moved that he lost balance, fell to his knees and began to cry. He also thanked his audience for "all your love and support, especially this »
It all began with Pimp My Ride, but since then a number of equally bizarre spin-offs have revved their way on to TV screens
The etymology of what it meant to "pimp" altered inexorably on 3 March, 2004, when the career of one Alvin Nathaniel Joiner took something of an unexpected turn. The resonance of this change of tack continues to be felt to this very day. Joiner, perhaps better known by his stage nom-de-plume Xzibit, joined the crew of a new MTV show in which automobiles were stripped down to their underpants and lavishly rebuilt to boast additional features like sound systems capable of loosening fillings, flatscreen televisions, gaming consoles, kitchenettes and squash courts. The show was called Pimp My Ride, and things were never quite the same again.
It spawned a legion of region-specific, spin-off "pimping" shows, including versions in Italy, France and one in the UK hosted by gangly hip-hop supremo Tim Westwood. »

When “Ace of Cakes” chef Duff Goldman talks about most things he lights up, but none so much as when asked about food. Speakeasy sat down with the chef at his Chelsea hotel in Manhattan to talk about his forthcoming Food Network show, “Sugar High.”
In his new show which premieres tonight, Goldman travels the country, mostly on his motorcycle, sometimes in wrinkled clothes straight out of his backpack. »

In case you haven't heard, Barack Obama is turning 50 on Thursday (Aug. 4) and to kick off his festivities he attended a special fundraiser in his honor on Wednesday evening in Chicago. While we're sure our invite was lost in the mail, we managed to get some shots of the party anyway.
Ok, these guys are here to party. And quite honestly, they are the best dressed to. Nothing brings an outfit together like a good hat.
Arriving in style. And you thought a Hummer limo was the hip way to celebrate your birthday?
Oh, look who did get their invite. Jennifer Hudson (standing next to former Obama staffer Rahm Emmanuel). Must be nice.
"Where is my cake?" ...is most likely not what he's asking here, but it's what we want to know. Seriously. Couldn't we get Duff from "Ace of Cakes" to whip something up?
Move over Biebz, we've got »
Television has always made a great home for food. Various cooking shows populate the airwaves, either becoming a staple of one's TV-diet or the one station you linger on during a desperate channel-surfing session. It also wouldn't be worthy of the tube if it weren't processed through the vomit of reality TV, with shows like "Hell's Kitchen" and "Ace of Cakes" morphing people into exestuated personalities and following their bouncy, sometimes-quirky-sometimes-emotional (whatever gets more ratings) adventures in the eats biz. Still, people watch them, and despite the redundant programming, nobody is exactly screaming for a more realistic study of cuisine… »
Though it may be a little dark and grim for a celebratory cake (as well as house a pretty big spoiler for those who have no idea what happens in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2), this is still one pretty badass cake. Created by the folks from Ace of Cakes for the New York City premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, check out both versions of the Burnt Hogwarts cake below. One extra nugget: Rupert Grint cut the first slice. [via Charm City Cakes]
The Real Price Of Gold: Dispatches
8pm, Channel 4
Deirdre Bounds made her name in the ethical travel trade. Tonight, she explores the not-so-ethical world of the gold industry, challenging retailers to reveal the sources of their gold, and travelling to a horrendous illegal mine in Senegal to speak to its child workers, before discovering the alternatives. Rebecca Nicholson
Made In Britain's chief remit seems to be as cheerleader for British industry in this interminable period of economic gloom, something which it does with admirable brio. This week, Evan Davis considers the UK's reputation as an ideas factory, weighing up the importance of innovation and reinvention in the British manufacturing marketplace. There are numerous success stories, such as Unilever, GlaxoSmithKline and Arm Holdings, whose tiny processing chips appear in many of the globe's 6bn smartphones, »

Chocolate-covered asparagus, anyone?
This week’s installment of “Food Network Star” found the remaining 12 contestants in sweet mode. As in sweet-meet-salty, sweet-meets-spicy and sweet-tries-to-stand-on-its-own. The good news is that there were some competitors in the group who definitely knew there way around a dessert buffet. The bad news – at least for the contestants – is that past success in the realm of all things sweet didn’t seem to guarantee a future triumph.

Beard Foundation Awards Angela Pinkerton
When it comes to the restaurant biz, Angela Pinkerton takes the cake. Literally and figuratively.
As pastry chef of New York’s acclaimed Eleven Madison Park , Pinkerton is the woman charged with bringing the same spirit of culinary daring to the dessert menu as proprietor Danny Meyer and chef Daniel Humm have brought to the restaurant overall. And now, her innovative approach has earned her the highest professional accolade: a James Beard Award for Outstanding Pastry Chef. »

Getty French Chef Paul Bocuse
Is this man the “Chef of the Century”?
That’s the title that the Culinary Institute of America bestowed upon French restaurateur Paul Bocuse at a New York gala on Wednesday night. The 85-year-Bocuse, often hailed as the father of the classical-gone-modern approach known as nouvelle cuisine, was feted by a crowd that included all sorts of foodie and other notables – namely, Thomas Keller (who also held a private chefs-only event for Bocuse on Tuesday), Jean-Georges Vongterichten, »

Like a lot of competition shows, Top Chef has pretty much lost me at this point. It seems the contestants come to the show already owning more and more restaurants, and the panel of judges never seem to reach the plateau of finding themselves interesting. But, whether you're still a big fan of the show or not, who can forget Marcel? His wild "molecular gastronomy" ideas and personality clashes made him one of the most memorable competitors the show ever had, and he's coming your way as Syfy kicks off a cooking show, Marcel's Quantum Kitchen.
If it's on Syfy, you know this isn't going to be just another cooking show. In fact, it's more in line with things like Ace of Cakes, as we find ourselves following along with Marcel's new catering company. Each week will find new clients, demanding new and bizarre masterpieces that push limits of the possible. »

The amazing star celebrated live on TV on the David Letterman Show with a shot of vodka.The Huffington Post notes the legendary actress and comedienne appeared on the 'Late Show with David Letterman' on Wednesday night live on CBS, and when asked her hobbies, she gave a two-part answer: playing with animals and drinking vodka.Letterman pulled out a bottle of vodka and poured White and himself a glass, the two drinking up on national television.Watch the video below.

When the "Ace of Cakes" bakers found out about Pavement's reunion last year they approached the band about baking a cake for them, but it wasn't an easy sell getting the indie heroes interested in being on a cable show about baked goods. Multi-instrumentalist and horse breeder, Bob Nastanovich, was familiar with the show ultimately convincing Stephen Malkmus and the rest of the band to agree.
"Even when we made a cake for Lucasfilm, they asked us to do it," pastry chef Duff Goldman told Spin. "This was us saying, 'Because we think you're awesome and we're stoked that you're going to be playing this show, we want to make a cake.'"
They also wanted to get in to see the concert. The resulting sweet was an incredibly Pavement conjuring horse cake, designed by the show's cake decorator Elena Fox (who also plays bass in Baltimore's Squaaks). Nastanovich was thrilled. »

After a satisfying stint in Miami, the "Gtl"-loving crew are heading back to where they belong — Seaside Heights, N.J. — when the new season of the reality hit kicks off tonight. Thankfully, the twice ousted and always annoying Angelina is staying in Staten Island this time around, with Snooki's provocative pal, Deena, taking her place in the house. Even with Angelina out of the picture, it doesn't take long for old tensions to resurface, and on their first night out, it becomes clear that some Miami grudges haven't gone anywhere. — Karen Kelty
