Sean Hannity Blasts Politifact’s ‘Stupidity’ After Fact-Checking Site Says He Fell for Hoax
Sean Hannity thinks he can add and subtract better than Politifact, so he blasted the fact-checking website on Tuesday for giving him a “Pants on Fire” rating for his claim that the U.S. was accepting 250,000 Syrian refugees. Hannity prefaced his tirade by saying he doesn’t usually respond to every “left-wing website” that goes after him, but he couldn’t resist when it comes to Politifact, which recently suggested the Fox News host fell for a hoax website quoting a non-existent State Department spokeswoman who announced that 250,000 Syrian refugees would be resettled on tribal reservation lands in Arizona and North Dakota.

In this animated adventure, Alvin, Simon, and Theodore revel in their new gig at a movie theme park by wandering the grounds after hours. Among the attractions is the spooky Frankenstein’s Castle, where a real mad scientist is bringing the monster to life. But when the boys cross paths with the creature (Frank Welker), they soon learn that appearances can be deceiving, and Frankenstein is more misunderstood than malevolent.

'America's Next Top Model' Recap: Sex, Lies But No Video Tape?

  • BuddyTV
'America's Next Top Model' Recap: Sex, Lies But No Video Tape?
Enough with the talking about Adam's drinking. Is America's Next Top Model grabbing at straws for any kind of drama they can eek out of this group? And here we go again about Chantelle not fitting in. I admit these are real American issues -- alcoholism and isolation -- but I prefer a focus on the modeling, the clothing, the makeovers, the real life sacrifices for the craft, and the photo shoots which turn semi-regular looking faces into gods and goddesses. Perhaps I'm in the minority, but I have reason to believe I'm not.

So, this installment is called "Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire: You're Going Straight to Hell." Or, wait a minute, that's just my own title for it. The CW calls Antm's 12th episode, "The Girl Who Gets Caught in a Lie." During panel last week, Miss J. Alexander said he'd heard that Chantelle was

Red Band's Dave Annable on Hot Doc's Messy Love Life, Clooney-esque Hair
Dave Annable would like you to know that any resemblance between his Red Band Society character character, Dr. Adam McAndrew, and ER‘s Dr. Doug Ross are entirely coincidental.

“You peruse the Internet and see things like, ‘How much makeup is in his hair to get that gray? Stop trying to make him look like George Clooney,'” Annable says with a laugh. “I spend 10 seconds in hair and 10 seconds in makeup. I couldn’t look any more like me!”

House of Cards recap: season two, episode three - 'Doormats and matadors'

Tea Party jerk Curtis Haas has left Frank Underwood with egg on his face, so he gets back to what he's good at: whipping

• Read Stuart's episode four recap here

Spoiler alert: we are recapping House of Cards on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Please do not leave spoilers for future episodes if you have seen further ahead.

Stuart Jeffries' episode two blogpost is here

"Curtis has me by the teabags, Frank," said Senate Majority Leader Hector Mendoza. Oh dear. If Americans habitually confuse their genitals with teabags, no wonder they prefer coffee.

What Mendoza meant, of course, is that he couldn't deliver the Republican vote to support Democratic vice-president Frank Underwood's amendment that would increase Us retirement ages, thereby ensuring Washington could fulfil its financial commitments to pensioners for the foreseeable future and avoid government shutdown that the Tea Party fruitcakes (no offence) sought in order to demonstrate the fatuousness of the public sector.

'Survivor: Caramoan': Dawn responds to Brenda's shocking Tribal Council moment and talks about their 'awkward' reunion show interaction

'Survivor: Caramoan': Dawn responds to Brenda's shocking Tribal Council moment and talks about their 'awkward' reunion show interaction
Dawn Meehan is not usually the type of person to end up in a controversy. But the bread-baking Mormon mother of six adopted children created a firestorm when she voted off buddy Brenda Lowe on Survivor: Caramoan after Brenda had found her missing fake teeth and tried to bring Dawn with her on a loved ones reward challenge. A revenge-seeking Brenda fired back at last night’s final Tribal Council, as she sought to humiliate her former friend by making her remove her teeth in front of the entire jury (and country watching at home.)

The Following Recap: Three's Company

The Following Recap: Three's Company
You know the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women campaign? I propose a Following-related tweak: Go Red for Ryan. After all, as the latest episode reminds us, the former FBI agent and his heart need all the help he can get.

Hardy’s busted ticker is at the center of this week’s offering, which is titled “Mad Love” but which, unfortunately, does not involve a mid-’90s Chris O’Donnell trying to talk a butterfly-bedecked Drew Barrymore off the ledge. (The hour does offer a very interesting group-shower scene, though, so we’ll call it a draw.

Anderson Cooper: I'm 'done' with Star Jones drama

  • Pop2it
Anderson Cooper is stepping away from his verbal tussle with Star Jones.

It took him three months, but Cooper finally responded to Jones's claim that he came out of the closet as a ratings ploy during an episode of "Anderson Live" last week. He pretty duly shut her down, but Jones still snapped back with an angry tweet claiming Cooper brought up the drama just to drum up viewership. Now a clip of tomorrow's episode of "Anderson Live" has made its way online, and in it Cooper says once and for all that he's done talking about Star Jones.

"Don't get me in a war with Star Jones. No. I said my piece on Star Jones. I'm not one to have a feud," Cooper says to a fan who brought up the controversy. "She tweeted back something. I said my piece and then she tweeted me and I'm not responding.

The Good Wife Season Finale Review: Bait, Switch and Scheme

  • TVfanatic
This was a perfectly strong episode of The Good Wife.

But that doesn't mean "The Dream Team" made for an especially captivating season finale.

It didn't feel like the culmination of a series of developments, as the best written season finales often do. Instead, it came across like the writers really had no long-term plan, touching upon featured arcs from the last few weeks, but mostly dropping brand new storylines on us.

Yes, Will's suspension amidst rumors of judicial bribery has been a long-running topic, as has been the firm's financial woes. But have they been keeping you glued to the screen every Sunday night? Have they really played a prominent enough role for the season finale to base such a pressing angle around them?

It was great to see Patti Nyholm and Louis Canning team up; these are two are fun, morally grey antagonists. Their featured appearance just felt a bit random.

'The Good Wife': Is Matthew Perry's character evil enough for you to want Alicia and Peter united?

'The Good Wife': Is Matthew Perry's character evil enough for you to want Alicia and Peter united?
Has there been a more infuriating scene to watch on The Good Wife than a calm Mike Kresteva (Matthew Perry) rewriting his meeting with Alicia and insisting, to her face, that everything coming out of his mouth about her having invited him to her office and asking him to change the panel report for Peter’s sake was not a lie? The way he was able to see, without looking away from Alicia, that an associate had entered his office (“One second, Ginger, I’ll be right out”) showed just how easy it is for this man to keep his story straight.

'The Good Wife' - 'Pants on Fire': Stroke of genius
A quick review of last night's "The Good Wife" coming up just as soon as I give you a friendship bracelet... "Pants on Fire" was a mix of satisfying moments and frustrating ones. Chief among the latter was Jackie taking a page out of the Livia Soprano playbook and faking a stroke to get her out of a jam involving her son. There are times when "The Good Wife" does an outstanding job of dealing in moral shades of grey, and other times when it paints its heroes and villains in stark black and white, and both Jackie and the Matthew...

Everybody’s messing with the truth in the “Pants On Fire” episode, which forces Peter and Eli to make some tough decisions while Jackie once again manages to out-maneuver Alicia. And in a memorable guest turn, Matthew Perry, returning as amoral lawyer Mike Kresteva, fills in a lot of the blanks from the last episode to create one of the series’ most intriguing characters.

Taking up where we left off last week, Alicia confronts her mother-in-law mid-rinse at the hair salon,
