The Best Celebrity Instagrams from the 2014 Tony Awards

As you may or may not have heard, depending on how many musical theatre nerds you know, the 2014 Tony Awards happened last night.

Drink Your Room Service Hooch, Eat Your Prison Pad Thai: Links You Need to See

Somehow, at the end of a day of internet immersion, every piece of information begins to seem — how can I possibly phrase this originally? — a reflektion of a reflektion of a reflektion. Today’s links communicate with one another across a dangerous terrain of pop cultural obsession (e.g. the weird, literal feeding of excessive Orange Is the New Black fandom) and antagonism (two good-humored attacks on Don Rickles’ wrinkles in one day!). So sit forward and feast your screen-wearied eyes on these bad boys (links). … Read More

Why ‘The Mindy Project’ Fails at Everything It Attempts

When Danny and Mindy got together a few episodes ago on The Mindy Project, the reaction from fans rivaled that of New Girl’s Nick and Jess shippers. The difference between the two audiences, of course, was that New Girl fans had earned the Nick and Jess relationship after two seasons that did not rely solely on the “will they or won’t they?” tease to carry them through. Moreover, New Girl fans were given an opportunity to actually enjoy the relationship before — spoiler alert — Nick and Jess broke up. Mindy and Danny shippers got one perfect scene of romantic bliss (the airplane kiss) and a couple episodes rife with drama before the split. One episode later, Mindy is back to guest-star flavors of the week, like New Girl’s Schmidt in tonight’s episode, and Danny is hooking up with Peter’s sister. A show has not made me feel so much like I’m doing dating in New York wrong since Sex and the City. Hell, even Girls gets it right more often than Mindy. … Read More

15 Possible Letterman Replacements Who Aren’t White Dudes

This week, David Letterman announced his retirement from his eponymous late-night talk show. While he won’t retire until sometime next year, people are already speculating about who will replace him on the show he’s helmed for over 20 years. And, in typical fashion, most of the predictions veer in the direction of Jon Stewart, Jay Leno, Craig Ferguson, or Conan O’Brien. Given that the late-night talk show landscape is almost exclusively the territory of white men, we have a few suggestions of comedians who could replace Letterman and — gasp! — aren’t white… Read More
