10 Ways to Fix 'New Girl's' Winston Bishop Problem

September 16th, 2014 2:30pm EDT
New Girl
“New Girl” is a show that I prize for its characterization. For example, Jess Day is much more complicated than the “adorkable” stereotype that Zooey Deschanel is often associated with, and Nick Miller is a bit of a slacker, but mainly because his ambitions do not fit the typical societal definition of success. So it is weird to say that there is a fundamental problem with one of the main characters, especially considering that that character – Winston Bishop – actually is as well-defined as the rest of the main cast. But for whatever reason, his storylines often feel disconnected from t...

Deadly Dinner Chat With TV's 'Hannibal' Mads Mikkelsen

Deadly Dinner Chat With TV's 'Hannibal' Mads Mikkelsen
Stepping into a role previously inhabited by others is in itself quite a daunting task, but when that role is the infamous part of Hannibal “The Cannibal” Lecter the chance to create something original seems impossible. Actor Brian Cox managed to portray and convey an inner intensity as the demented doctor in "Manhunter" and of course Anthony Hopkins brought a sense of big grandiose to the captive killer in "Silence of the Lambs" and the two following films. But could else anyone fill the shoes of such an iconic serial killer? Enter Mads Mikkelsen. As a more calculated and intellectually...

Rosie O'Donnell Shows Off Massive Weight Loss On 'The View'
Seven years after leaving "The View," Rosie O'Donnell returned as a co-host on Monday, surprising fans with a much slimmer body (and with bare feet!)

The TV personality once tipped the scales at 237 pounds, but after having a heart attack in 2012 she knew she had to lose some weight and become healthier. However, the weight loss process has been mentally challenging.

"I'm not used to it yet. I still buy the wrong-sized clothes," she told the audience. "A lot of people who have never had weight issues their whole life would assume that losing weight and going from morbidly obese to being a...

'Under the Dome' Season 2, Episode 12: Let's Get Stabby

September 16th, 2014 9:06am EDT
Under the Dome
Last week on "Under the Dome," we ended on a deadly contracting Dome. This week, with "Turn," we still have that deadly contracting dome... that's contracting way slower than it was last week.

C'mon, last week Joe and Norrie could barely outrun the thing. Now it's moving a foot every four hours.

But the Dome's eventual-crushing speed is neither here nor there. What matters is that in a certain amount of time (given the Dome's current shrink rate, probably two or three weeks), everyone and everything in Chester's Mill will be compressed into a tiny sphere the size of a marble.

Realizing t...

'Dancing With The Stars' Week One Recap: Fails, Flops And One Am
It was a tense first outing for many of the new couples on the first episode of "Dancing with the Stars." The judges were expecting big show-stopping numbers, but instead were disappointed with many of the celebs' routines. While there were a few bright lights, it looks to be a season of criticism where the celebs will be working double time to score with both the judges and fans. The total points a couple can get per dance routine is 40.

Mayim Bialik Voices Her Issue With Ariana Grande’s Sexy Billboar
“Big Bang Theory” star Mayim Bialik just isn’t a fan of Ariana Grande.

The girl who personified eclectic and cool during her run in the 1980's hit "Blossom" has found offense to a billboard featuring the singer in a scantily clad outfit and stiletto heels, promoting her new CD, "My Everything."

Bialik, who practices Orthodox Judiasm, took to her blog to criticize a billboard she saw featuring Grande, and within it, she mentioned that she has no idea who the pop singer is.

“There is one for Ariana Grande, and I will go ahead and admit I have no idea who she is or what she does. Based on t...

'Ray Donovan' Season 2, Episode 10: The Great Weed Money Caper

'Ray Donovan' Season 2, Episode 10: The Great Weed Money Caper
Listen, it's no secret that the peanut gallery of "Ray Donovan" are not pleasant people. They're in a crime drama- thus, they must be criminals. Or those complacent to the actions of criminals.

So for the most part (other than Shorty- sweet, beautiful Shorty), we're looking at a group of "bad" people.

But "bad" doesn't necessarily mean "mentally unhinged." At least, it didn't until last night's episode of "Ray Donovan," entitled "Volcheck."

The hour had a very distinct structure. "Here is the cast of 'Ray Donovan,'" the episode explained to us. "Now watch as each one of them slowly loses...
