When fun in the sun loses its draw, it’s nice to retreat in the AC with some quality TV. Here are some returning favorites and new picks to watch out for this season. HBO Documentary Film Serie  

Go Behind the Scenes of Cincinnati's 'Antiques Roadshow' Episode

0 Comments · Wednesday, May 29, 2013
After a three-week run of episodes (April 1-15) taped at the Duke Energy Convention Center last summer, Antiques Roadshow will premiere behind-the-scenes footage from the show’s Cincinnati stop (8 p.m. Monday, CET).   

Netflix Saved Our Bluths

0 Comments · Tuesday, May 21, 2013
The Arrested Development story is a TV nerd’s dream come true. A smart, quirky, new kind of comedy struggles to attract an audience. Despite being critically acclaimed, the series fails to draw in enough viewers (and playfully mocks its own demise) and gets canned after the third season. Enter the Netflix era.  

Tom+Chee Founders to Swim with the Sharks

Tom+Chee, the local gourmet grilled cheese and tomato soup restaurant, will be featured on this week’s episode of Shark Tank.

The Return of AMC's 'Not Suitable For Work'-place Series

I was tricked into watching Small Town Security (10 p.m. Thursdays, AMC) during its premiere last summer. The reality workplace comedy following a Georgia private security company immediately followed each episode of the first half of Breaking Bad’s final season.

I Just Can't Get Enough

Jac's roundup of pop culture news and Internet findings

Everyone’s talking about the punk-themed Met Ball today, but I’m still in awe from last night’s RuPaul’s Drag Race season finale and reunion, where America’s Next Drag Superstar was crowned in true pageant style. It’s easy to confuse the two: both are over-the-top parades of outrageous fashion, debut ‘dos and bodies squeezed into numerous pairs of Spanx, but only one event has RuPaul, so I’m focusing on that one. The spotlight was on the final three dragsters, Roxxxy Andrews, Jinkx Monsoon and Alaska, but I couldn’t take my eyes off Penny Tration, Cincinnati’s own queen supreme who was voted onto this season by viewers — only to be eliminated in the first episode.via Homorazzi Like any good queen, Penny varies up her looks, but I’ve never seen her like this before! E! put Penny on their worst dressed list, but any press is good press, right? With a leotard made from the fabric of the dress she wore when she was eliminated, manic makeup and a tiny tuft of hair on her big bald head, homegurl looked like a pageant baby Treasure Troll on crack, and by that I obviously mean she looked amazing.via Homorazzi Detox, who I originally pegged as the winner but only made it to the final four, also stole the show with this incredible black-and-white look. No Photoshop! And Season 4 winner, Sharon Needles, served up Pee Wee Herman realness in this hot little number: In the end, the camptatstic Jinkx, “Seattle’s premier Jewish narcoleptic drag queen” took the crown!                                             #wateroffaduck'sback The full trailer for True Blood’s sixth season is here. All hail Billith! This shit is so far beyond, but I don’t think any amount of supernatural caca could keep me from indulging in this mess year after year. Season Six premieres June 16. Ever since the unveiling of that crazy Tupac hologram at 2012’s Coachella fest, there have been rumors of similarly reviving other dead musicians and performers, including TLC’s Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez. With a TLC reunion on the horizon, the idea has come up again but for now we can just settle for this peek at VH1’s upcoming TLC biopic. I am not familiar with two of the actresses, but Lil Mama plays Left Eye. I just can’t right now. RIP Marge Simpson! Simpsons creator Matt Groening’s mother, Margaret, the inspiration for the iconic blue-haired matriarch, has passed away at age 94. Looking at her obituary, I learned Groening tucked a bunch of autobiographical bits into The Simpsons. The real Marge was actually married to a Homer, and had daughters named Maggie and Lisa. Her maiden name, Wiggum, is used in the show as the resident police chief’s name. Has anyone else noticed that Shae from Game of Thrones kind of looks like Megara, the goddess from Hercules? Since Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet soundtrack was basically the playlist of my childhood, I figured the music selections for The Great Gatsby would be on-point. I was right. Stream the whole soundtrack, featuring Beyoncé, Andre 3000, Fergie, Lana Del Rey and a heavy coat of flapper Jazz, via NPR. Miss this week’s Mad Men? Here’s all you need to know:
 
 

How to Get to Abigail Street

It’s Hard Out Here for a Veep

1 Comment · Tuesday, April 23, 2013
It’s often said that the vice president of the United States is “one heartbeat away” from the role of commander in chief. But if Veep (10 p.m., Sundays, HBO) is any indication, sometimes second-in-command is actually much further down the totem pole.

I Just Can't Get Enough

Jac's roundup of pop culture news and Internet findings

Upon reading recent entertainment news, you may find yourself wondering, “Are awards shows are still happening?” The answer is yes, but not anything that really counts. The MTV Movie Awards took place Monday night, hosted by the Australian fireball that is Rebel Wilson. She’s stolen scenes in Bridesmaids, Pitch Perfect and Workaholics, and while she made a good host for the second-rate, teen-targeted show, it was kind of disappointing that 90 percent of her jokes were about either her vagina or her weight. Other low points included Taylor Lautner’s attempt at comedy (Side Note: How will the MTV Movie Awards live on now that the Twilight series is over?), Selena Gomez’s possibly offensive Bollywood-inspired performance and the fact that the whole production was essentially a giant lead-up to the premiere of the Hunger Games: Catching Fire trailer (Oh, that’s how the show will continue…). But there were some quality moments, namely during the Comedic Genius award presentation. Get More: 2013 MTV Movie Awards, Latest Movie News, Will Ferrell Peter Dinklage presented this prestigious prize to Will Ferrell (they worked together in Elf) and you could tell that The Dinks was thinking, “Don’t these people know I am Tyrion Lannister? I am too good for this shit,” the whole damn time. Ferrell came out in a money-printed suit, dropping classic WF hilarity (aka saying literally anything in his Ron Burgundy voice) and sufficiently creating plenty of buzz for the forthcoming Anchorman sequel. The best part, however, was when a shwasted Aubrey Plaza stormed the stage during Will’s acceptance speech. With glazed-over eyes, a plastic cup of booze and “# The To Do List,” (her upcoming movie) written on her chest, the actress hopped onstage, half-heartedly tried to grab the popcorn award from Will’s hands, quickly realized how this looked to everyone else, then ran back to her seat. Ferrell did not take this opportunity to embarrass her further, as she clearly regretted the stunt immediately.                                        "What the shit was I thinking?! I’m such an idio—Smile for the camera!"Plaza was escorted out of the show after the stunt, and you know you’re at a new level of drunk when you must be removed from an MTV event. On Monday, she gave us this morning-after tweet of shame: Logo’s NewNowNext Awards followed on Monday night. With a fabulous mix guests (Read: drag queens for DAYS) and campy categories, it was a fun event that didn’t take itself too seriously. Which is good, because that shit was hella low-budge. Check out the whole show here. Now that Arrested Development’s Netflix premiere date has been officially announced (May 26!), promotional material and fan-created goodies are rolling out in full force. Designer Josh Cox created these awesome record sleeves for each member of the Bluth clan. My favorite:And speaking of Arrested Development, Brandon Killham, the actor who played young Michael Bluth also played a young Dick Whitman on this week’s Mad Men (and in previous episodes). Oh, and he also played a young Brian Moser/Rudy Cooper on Dexter. Mind = Blown. Why am I obsessed with celebrity Coachella fashion? I don’t know, but if you feel like getting sucked into a denim cutoff-crop top-hippie-hobo abyss, browse photos here. Holy shit, Glee finally did a school shooting episode — sort of. Sue Sylvester’s right-hand woman, Becky, brought her father’s gun to school because, as a student with Down syndrome, she was nervous to graduate and leave the school’s safe haven. She wanted to keep it for protection. The gun went of by accident when Becky was discussing the issue with Sue in her office, and no one was hurt. To protect Becky, Sue took the blame for the gun and was fired. It is not clear if or when Jane Lynch’s character will return, but it is likely. Check out the controversial scene here. Louis C.K.’s HBO special, Oh My God debuted last Saturday and, to no one’s surprise, it was poignant, intelligent and laugh-out-loud hilarious. For such a dark, crude comic, I found the larger themes of many jokes to have something of a positive message. OK, not every joke… Check out the New York Times’ recent interview with Louie here. And now, for a segment I’d like to call “Hold Up, Y’all, Cincinnati’s on the TV!” Trew Quackenbush and Corey Ward, the guys behind gourmet grilled cheese and tomato soup spot Tom + Chee, announced Friday that they will be featured on ABC’s Shark Tank in an episode airing at 9 p.m. May 17.  Lauren Brown, local chef at Igby’s who starred in the single greatest television show of all time, will also appear on the small screen. Brown will be one of four chefs competing on Chef Wanted with Anne Burrell to be hired on as head chef at Nikki Beach in Miami, Fla. The episode airs at 10 p.m. April 25 on Food Network. The show also featured Jeff Ruby and The Precinct on a recent episode (Spoiler Alert: The winning chef didn’t even end up accepting the job offer).
