In honor of Christy Carlson Romano’s birthday and in remembrance of Ren Stevens, the original Type A girl (for me at least), let’s take a look at some other memorable TV ladies with the same perfectionist streak. They might drive us up the wall sometimes, but in the end we can’t get enough of them. More
Chandler Bing and Monica Chef are reuniting on television. But NOT as Chandler and Monica. Let me explain. More
Happy 49th birthday to Brad Pitt! We’ve put together a bucket list of all the things he should try to do before he turns 50 next year. More
Gaze longingly at these astonishingly detailed recreations of the apartments from Sex and the City and Friends, and then join me in hissing, “Those lucky bitches!” More
Is your baby daddy not paying child support? All you have to do is trick him into thinking he got a cameo in the new Jennifer Aniston romantic comedy, and he’ll waltz right back into your life. More
Remember when Courteney Cox and David Arquette got married in 1999 and the Friends credits put “Arquette” next to everyone’s names? More
Now that House has been cancelled, creator David Shore is working to make an ending that will fit the show’s tone and provide closure for the fans. Here are some other series (including Nip/Tuck and Dollhouse) that got that same chance, and how they ended. More
Remember yesterday’s Daily WTF, where I questioned the legitimacy of an advocacy group known as the American Mustache Institute? It turns out they’re not an Internet prank and are real, since they wrote us to say so. So of course we had to ask a) why exactly they stopped supporting presidential hopeful Herman Cain, and b) which celebrities’ lady ticklers they’re particularly fond of. More
Growing up, we watched Nick at Nite as a portal into the past: Block Party Summer featured such black-and-white classics as I Love Lucy and The Monkees. But do you know what the newest show to go into this weird retirement/syndication is? Friends! Yes, the sitcom that ended less than a decade ago, in 2004.
Nick at Nite has always been an indicator of age, so we’re pretty shaken up by the show we grew up with in high school and college suddenly being considered a golden oldie. More

The current arc on All My Children (what? I was watching One Tree Hll reruns on SoapNet!) has Susan Lucci playing Erica Kane and her devious double, with the evil twin recently sleeping with Erica’s man. This is by no means the first time that fiendish doppelgangers have seduced their lookalikes’ men, because screwing the boyfriend/lover/husband is the best way to screw over your goody-two-shoes double.

If modern product placement isn’t bad enough, for the past few years networks have been getting extra money by digitally inserting new products into old reruns — in many cases, episodes set before the product was even invented! Consumerist spotted an especially egregious one: In this How I Met Your Mother repeat, behind Robin you can see a stack of books and a magazine with an ad for Kevin James‘ new comedy Zookeeper. There aren’t even any books in the original shot!
This kind of retroactive product placement feels creepily invasive, because it’s not as if the creators or stars of the shows ever had any say in what was getting advertised. More
You know what’s funny? Having STDs. Or at least, that’s what TV and movie writers think, because there are at least three instances where a character has unknowingly become the face of genital herpes or another cringe-inducing condition, by starring in a commercial for STD medication. Whether the characters were trying to earn a quick buck or incurred the wrath of an angry female, the experience forever tarnishes their image… and it gets the laughs. More
When we interviewed Liz Gillies at the Victorious press junket, she mentioned that her show would be doing a crossover with Nickelodeon’s other big earner, iCarly, called iParty with Victorious: “It’s wild and fun, and there’s a really cool guest star.” With the special airing on June 11, Nick just released a behind-the-scenes video of stars Miranda Cosgrove and Victoria Justice, plus their respective casts, performing a mash-up of their theme songs. Yep, they take the idea of a TV crossover very seriously. Oh, and Kenan Thompson is gonna be on it. More
While today you have free reign to squeal over furry little puppies, Gothamist points out that it’s also Chip & Dip Day. What better way to celebrate than with another installment of Food Tube, where I find TV shows that reference the food of the moment, with handy recipes. It’s surprising how many series had episodes referencing this handy snack; I tried to make the recipes match up as much as possible while still giving you enough variety of the “chips + dip” equation.
