Last night Lifetime premiered a new Christmas movie called The Santa Con. That’s not to be confused with SantaCon, although it did premiere the same weekend and one of the characters was drunk the whole time. More

As a full-blooded real American who loves my country, I spend the whole year waiting for ABC Family’s 25 Days of Christmas countdown. Seriously, December 26th rolls around and I start checking off the days until it all begins again. While every single night is magical and amazing and capable of making me believe Santa is real, my favorite night is the Holiday in Handcuffs night. More
Sometimes I look at a celebrity and say, “Hey, I thought you were really cool when I was a kid. What are you still doing here?” More
Melissa could start a class at the Learning Annex where she teaches stars how to save up their juicy celebrity encounters in their mental piggy banks and then cash in on the investment when the hourglass that keeps track of their fifteen minutes is down to its last few grains of sand. Melissa explains it all, indeed. More
It turns out she’s reached the point in her career where she writes an autobiography. Everybody who’s anybody has an autobiography. But it turns out she’s also reached the point in her career where she brags about making out with Ryan Reynolds. Uh oh, I didn’t think we’d gotten there yet. Slow down there, Melissa. More
Nearly two decades after Clarissa Darling began answering some of life’s hardest questions, like “What is Pearl Jam?” and “Why don’t cute guys climb ladders to my bedroom?” and ultimately defining my childhood, Clarissa Explains It All will be returning… as a novel. Which is really cool and better than nothing, I guess, but if you’ve made us wait long enough that we’ve pretty much forgotten all about her couldn’t it at least come back on TV? More
Celebrities get so much publicity when they’re pregnant. Do you think they haven’t noticed? More
RIP Steve Jobs. He was truly a visionary, and he forever changed our understandings of technology. So much of his innovative work is forever embedded in pop culture—in fact, most people heard of his death over one of his inventions.
His impact was so universal that a bevy of celebrities commented on his passing over Twitter. More
On October 28, 2000, Nickelodeon aired an original movie as part of its seasonal Halloween SNICK line-up. Based on an old Ohio urban legend, the movie was called Cry Baby Lane. But after its initial airing, Nickelodeon was hit by an onslaught of parental complaints deeming the movie far too disturbing for a children’s network. The film was buried: It was never re-aired, and it was never released on video or DVD. But never fear! We here at Crushable managed to get our hands on a copy. As we sat down to watch it, we had only one question: Just what about it was so awful to result in Cry Baby Lane being banned? Sit back and make yourselves comfortable, because have we got some theories for you! (SPOILERS, of course.) More
Nickelodeon stars from All That and Clarissa Explains It All managed to keep a career going after they flew the nest, but Kenan Thompson seems to be the only one who’s kept in touch with the parent company. He recently guest-starred as himself on Victorious, and now he’s sitting on a big orange couch to promote the upcoming reruns of those ’90s shows. The commercial has him trying to record a Nickelodeon commercial — look, Nick’s gone meta! — only for the crew to keep interrupting him with questions about the behind-the-scenes life on the shows.

Wow, that’s some balls Clarissa has on her to take on Sarah Jessica Parker. What a little underminer! We hope SJP responds by asking who the hell Melissa Joan Hart is.
That’s how we know a show is going to be great people: When one of the main actors is able to make his own eyes bleed with the scripts for upcoming episodes. Poor Joey Lawrence, who is working so hard on Joey and Melissa, this update of Who’s the Boss that’s going to totally revitalize his and Melissa Joan Hart‘s career. The poor guy went in to hug Melissa while she was holding her script, and according to his Twitter, “got hit in the eye yesterday mrng by accident in the set and it ripped my cornea.” More
This week, we harken the big-screen arrival of The Switch, starring Jennifer Aniston , in addition to the ABC Family debut of the soon-to-be-classic sitcom Melissa And Joey, co-starring washed-up ’90s teen icons Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence. Don’t fight it!
Here at Crushable we embrace the high and low aspects of pop culture — and sometimes that includes really crappy movies that are so awesomely bad, they’re worth multiple viewings. (Like skater movies featuring Christian Slater!) We’ve compiled six of … More
