6 Ways 'The Event' Differs From 'Lost' and '24'

Last night was the second episode of The Event, which a lot of people are calling NBC’s attempt at “Lost meets 24,” two very popular shows that went off the air this year.

Who do you think could fit more balls in their mouth? More »

Dude Diary: 5 Facts About Jason Ritter

Is everyone getting pumped to watch The Event tonight? It’s supposed to be like 24 meets Lost, which perfectly fills that niche of “Shows that we love that are no longer on television.” And though we don’t know much about what the event from The Event actually is (time-travel? The monster from Cloverfield?) we do know that hottie Jason Ritter has signed on for the role of Sean Walker, a man searching for his fiance. Possibly on a plane. So much mystery!
