Fox, there’s yet another shark storm brewing, but this time in New York City. The movie has promised to be bigger, better, and campier than the first. We’ll soon find out whether or not that’s true, but one thing is for sure: Sharknado 2 is best paired with booze. To help you out, here are the rules for Flavorwire’s official Sharknado 2 drinking game. … Read More
Is this really happening? We’ve reached the end? The seventh and final season of Mad Men debuts tonight, and emotions are running high ‘round these parts. We’re handling it the way any 1960’s ad exec would — with a stiff drink. This week, we told you everything we know about the forthcoming season; we talked Mad Men fashion, literature, and film; and we even gave you a season six refresher course. Since your head is already swimming with anticipation and the sadz, why not add regret to the mix and guzzle your way through the season seven premiere along with us? We thought so, you lush. … Read More
We have complete faith that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will once again be incredible hosts for this year’s Golden Globes ceremony.

In a cliffhanger to end all cliffhangers, Vince Gilligan ended Breaking Bad’s midseason with DEA agent Hank Schrader stumbling upon a major clue in the New Mexico meth ring case while inside Walter White’s bathroom. We’ve been jumping out of our skin, anticipating the second part of season five ever since. The final chapter of Breaking Bad premieres tonight, and with anxiety levels set to high, booze is essential. Join us in a drinking game, which is a hell of a lot safer than becoming a meth head or trading in your job as a high school chemistry teacher to become a drug lord. Cheers! … Read More
Organizers are hurriedly completing the finishing touches on the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood for the 85th Academy Awards premiering tonight at 8PM. The rest of us are readying our Oscar-themed cocktails so we can survive the never-ending event and walk (ok, crawl) away mostly unscathed. We’re counting on host Seth MacFarlane for unscripted hilarity. In the words of RuPaul: “Good luck, and don’t f**k it up.” You’ve agonized and argued over your ballot predictions and the Oscar shocks, snubs, and surprises, but when the red carpet rolls out, we hope you’ll settle in with our official 2013 Academy Awards drinking game. Try not to hurt anyone or anything, and join us here tonight as we live blog the ceremony. … Read More
We’ve been squirmy with anticipation for Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s American Horror Story: Asylum ever since the announcement was made that season one star Jessica Lange would be reprising a role in the FX series.
This time around she’ll be playing the formidable nun, Sister Jude. Lange stars alongside returning alums Frances Conroy, Evan Peters, Zachary Quinto, Lily Rabe, and Sarah Paulson inside the mental institution, Briarcliff Manor. The now abandoned hospital was a former tuberculosis ward purchased by the Catholic Church in 1962. James Cromwell, Joseph Fiennes, Lizzie Brocheré, Chloë Sevigny, and Ian McShane are amongst the newcomers joining them. We can’t wait for more over-the-top scares, pervy encounters, and dysfunctional drama.
To add to the insanity, we’ve created our official American Horror Story: Asylum drinking game, complete with recommended cocktails. Grab a glass, and say a few Hail Marys before heading past the break to play along with us. … Read More

The winners pool also includes CNN’s coverage of the Arab Spring, HBO’s gut wrenching documentary about the legacy of genocide in Rwanda, and PBS’ fascinating look into the life of Charles and Ray Eames, The Architect and the Painter. See the whole list of Peabody recipients after the jump, and give yourself a gold star for each of these programs that you’ve watched (or in some cases listened to) and enjoyed, you smartypants you. … Read More
