Chris Pratt Sings a Sweet Goodbye To ‘Parks and Recreation’

For six seasons we’ve watched Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt) pursue moderate-sized dreams of stardom on Parks and Recreation. His band Mouse Rat’s biggest gig to date was the Pawnee Unity Concert, where they were joined on stage by the legendary Duke Silver (Nick Offerman) to pay tribute to a beloved horse. With the delightful NBC comedy coming to an end next year (no, YOU’RE the one who’s crying!) it’s only fitting that the entire cast and crew joined together in song to say goodbye. Jesus, the final season hasn’t even started and we’re already a mess. Read more…

Retta, The Greatest Live-Tweeter, Reviews TV’s Best Shows

Parks and Recreation‘s Donna aka the terribly funny Retta is probably Twitter’s funniest live-tweeter. Each week the actress blesses fans with shocked reactions, quick wit and unforettable commentary. When VH1′s Kate Spencer bumped into her on the red carpet of the PaleyFest 2014, the ultimate TV fan festival, she tested Retta’s Twitter knowledge of the show and had her provide one-word and one-tweet reviews. She offers up thoughts on Orange is the New Black, Scandal and The Walking Dead. And let’s be real, hearing Retta review each show is just like watching her live feed on Twitter. She’s exactly the person you want to watch TV with because she knows exactly how you feel.

The World According To April Ludgate

Premiere Of Pantelion Films' "Casa De Mi Padre" - Red Carpet

In her new movie The To Do List, Aubrey Plaza plays a high school graduate blindly following a list of sexual experiences deemed necessary to have accomplished before entering college, without any regard for shame. On Parks and Recreation Plaza’s April Ludgate needs no assistance when it comes to taking on the world in her own dark and twisted way, or creating fake dates far into the future to help get her boss (Ron Swanson) out of unwanted meetings.

From Friends‘ Spud-nik To PLL’s Vampy Adam Lambert: TV’s Best Halloween Costumes

Our favorite costumes from the Halloween episodes of Friends, Community, Pretty Little Liars and Glee

Halloween means candy corn, haunted houses, and your dad wearing that musty vampire outfit yet again. But it also means Halloween specials on TV! Throughout the years, the small screen has captured the fun of dressing up for the holidays. It’s a time for our favorite characters to get creative and just a tad inappropriate as they sport costumes from the topical, the slutty, or other clever ideas that perfectly reflect their own personalities. Here’s a list of some of our favorite Halloween costumes from TV over the years that may give you some inspiration of what to do…and what not to do.

Best Mystery Costume – The Slutty Pumpkin (How I Met Your Mother): It was that crisp, autumnal night on Halloween when Ted Mosby thought he met the love of his life…in a costume that has become the show’s famed “Slutty Pumpkin.” Though her face was veiled, this mystery woman became the object of Ted’s harvest-filled fantasies. Many years later, we discovered that the woman was none other than Katie Holmes! Even though the costume doesn’t have much originality, we give them props for mocking the “slutty fill-in-the-blank” outfit.

Will Arnett’s Insane Abs, Amy Poehler’s Adorable Kid Stories On Ellen Fill Us With All The Feelings

Of course both members of our favorite (currently separating) celebrity couple are on successful sitcoms this fall. Of course they are. As a result, Amy Poehler and Will Arnett are everywhere this month, and we feel like we’re trapped in a glass cage of emotion! Take Amy’s ridiculous sweet anecdotes about her little Cheeto babies Archie and Abel for example. “They play like bear cubs. All day long, they roll around,” the Parks & Rec star laughed on Ellen today, adding “They go to the same school and when they say goodbye to each other, it’s like they’re both getting on ships to the new country. They hold hands and kiss each other and say goodbye. It’s so cute.” Gotta…keep it…together. Don’t…cry…over…famous family…you…don’t even…know. Picture…the…Obamas.

Then, just when we think we’ve crammed our inappropriate ball of sadness back down our throats, we stumbled upon the new Up All Night promo featuring Arnett and Christina Applegate:

Emmy Snubs: Which Of Your Faves Didn’t Make The Cut?

Alexander Skarsgard, Cheryl Hines, Andrew Lincoln

We’re going to treat this space as a bit of an open ranting thread for any of you left huffing and puffing about the TV Academy being stuck in their ways and ignoring your favorite TV shows in the 64th Primetime Emmy nominations list. For the most part, we’re actually pretty happy with the nominees — there are a few surprises that make it seem like this show might actually be a little hipper than years past. But still, there are some GLARING omissions. Here are the snubs we’re kinda peeved about:

Vampires: Sure, True Blood and Vampire Diaries are soapy and campy (that’s why we love them). But Alexander Skarsgard displayed some serious acting chops when Eric lost his memory last season. (He displayed some other things too, that should win all the awards.)

The Walking Dead: As Andrew Lincoln’s Rick struggled to keep the group together, maintain his friendship with Shane and survive the zombie apocalypse, his performance often left us breathless.

Glee: Dot-Marie Jones was rightly nominated for guest performance, but Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, Diana Agron and Naya Rivera all had some seriously dramatic moments that drove us to tears.

Summer Movie Guide: Boob Tube Stars On The Silver Screen

As temperatures rise and blockbusters flood the movie theaters, prepare to swim in celebs who became household names via the boob tube. While some have since established themselves as movie stars, we grew to love them on a weekly basis from our couches.

A brunette version of Gossip Girl‘s Blake Lively will play leading lady opposite Ryan Reynolds in Green Lantern. Mad Men‘s January Jones will trade her 60s housewife getup for a shimmery push-up bra for her role as Emma Frost in X-Men: First Class. Ever the uptight but lovable nerd, The Office‘s Ed Helms will reprise his role in The Wolfpack in The Hangover: Part II. This summer’s token fluffy comedy Monte Carlo features plenty of TV’s hottest stars such as Glee‘s Cory Monteith, GG‘s Leighton Meester and Katie Cassidy, and Wizards of Waverly Place‘s Selena Gomez.

Before the heat and humidity makes us all flee to the movie theaters for relief, check out what TV stars to keep an eye out for in this summer’s biggest flicks.
