Jac's roundup of pop culture news and Internet findings
were limited to teenagers at the mall food court, drunk girls at bars and an
alarming amount of people in bathrooms? Broaden your scope to include law
enforcement with Cop Selfies, which sadly also include plenty
of toilet shots:

plummet when you hear this news: Pawnee’s Chris Traeger and Ann Perkins
are leaving our lives as Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones will be exiting Parks and Rec mid-way through the
upcoming sixth season. The hot-and-cold couple decided to make a baby in last
season’s finale, so hopefully we’ll get to see Chris obsess over Ann and the
baby’s health — I shudder to think about the gargantuan prenatal vitamin he’ll force down poor Ann Perkin’s throat — and

The Doctor is in —
Peter Capaldi will replace Matt Smith in Doctor
making him the 12th actor to portray The Doctor on the show, the
longest-running sci-fi series. Capaldi is best known for his role on the British

Time Warner Cable

CBS and Showtime “due to outrageous demands for programming.”
This blackout does not result in a price cutback for customers and it

Roasts are generally reserved for washed up celebs and veteran comics, but the
network is gonna try something new with the Roast of James Franco. Hosted by
BFF Seth Rogen, the roast is sure to draw in an even bigger, younger audience. Yes,
we all love it when Seth and James get together (see: the last decade), but the
real laughs will come when the seasoned roasters sink their teeth in ole

It’s often said that the vice president

Some comic actors are better identified
by their characters they portray, like Ken Marino: You may know him as
Auggie’s slacker step-dad; a Jewish summer camp counselor/unlikely
