The Biggest Stars of Summer TV, with Ponytails

Everybody knows we're currently experiencing a golden age of television; this is no longer in dispute or interesting to talk about. Just ask all of the celebrities, who over the past few years have been flipping the double-bird to movies and applying for jobs in TV. Never has this been more true than in the current… » 6/27/14 11:50am 6/27/14 11:50am

The Agony of "To Be Continued" on MTV's The Challenge

Last week's episode of The Challenge was one of its best episodes in history. Or it would have been if the ending hadn't been chopped off in what could be safely called the tease of the year, decade, and Willennium. Look, we know The Challenge has its, uh, lower-rent aspects, but its willingness to straight up deprive… » 6/20/14 1:38pm 6/20/14 1:38pm

The Hunk Parade Continues on American Ninja Warrior

Miami is an American city famous for humidity, cocaine, and martial arts. That latter item was on full display during this week's American Ninja Warrior qualifying round in which all the hunky monkey ninjas of Miami came out to do their flips and twists and gravity-defying whatevers. As always the pageant of hunks was… » 6/17/14 10:15am 6/17/14 10:15am

A Best Friend Is Your Worst Enemy on MTV's The Challenge

Sometimes "best friend" is just another word for "pre-enemy." Unless it's late in the season of your particular reality show, in which case "best friend" could also mean "post-enemy." Whatever the case, nobody knows quite how to hurt you in the heart like a former best friend, so maybe that old adage "I'm not here to… » 6/06/14 10:00am 6/06/14 10:00am

National Treasure John Waters Explains Feeders to Craig Ferguson

Though he hasn't made a film since 2004's sexual deviancy romp A Dirty Shame, filmmaker and cult icon John Waters hasn't stopped celebrating filth. Currently out promoting his new book Carsick, a loosely true account of hitchhiking across America, Waters appeared on The Late Late Show for a lively conversation with… » 6/06/14 8:26am 6/06/14 8:26am

Dunzo's the Word on This Week's Faking It

I may not have any friends due to having a bad personality and also eating with my hands too much, but even I know that friend breakups are one of life's saddest stories. We've all dumped or been dumped by people we were having sensual relations with, but it's the platonic friends who've known us longest and best who… » 6/04/14 2:45pm 6/04/14 2:45pm

American Ninja Warrior's Nunchuk-Swinging "Gospel Rapper" Struggles

You can tell a lot about a city by its American Ninja Warrior contestants. In Venice Beach we got the usual amount of stuntmen and waiters, but if this week's Dallas-set qualifying round is any indication, 85% of all sporty white guys in the South are youth pastors. Take the gentleman in the above video: Rocky Thomas… » 6/03/14 9:45am 6/03/14 9:45am

Nothing But a Mostly Naked Giant Sex Swing on MTV's The Challenge

One of The Challenge's biggest charms (out of its thousand thousand charms) is how ramshackle its titular challenges can be. Whereas Survivor employs a baker's dozen genius puzzle masters and hundreds of hunky Australian carpenters who spend upwards of three months building a single maze, it sometimes feels like The… » 5/30/14 10:30am 5/30/14 10:30am

Don't Tell Your Mom There Was a Threesome on This Week's Faking It

There's something so special about a show geared toward young people that would give their parents a panic attack. Despite a fair amount of chill, enlightened parents out there who might possibly be OK with their 13-year-old watching a show like Faking It, I'm guessing most would be horrified about the prospect? A… » 5/28/14 7:45pm 5/28/14 7:45pm

Your Future Boyfriend Was on American Ninja Warrior Last Night

There are plenty of respectable reasons to watch NBC's American Ninja Warrior. It's a fleet, simple, and inspiring competition series that celebrates athleticism as a unifier among a diverse array of people. Now in its sixth season, the Japanese import continues to boast the broadest spectrum of athletes in age,… » 5/27/14 11:45am 5/27/14 11:45am

Was This the Worst Move in the History of MTV's The Challenge?

Question is rhetorical, because of course it was the worst move in the history of MTV's The Challenge. After Johnny Bananas was nominated to go into the arena, Jordan voluntarily flipped over all three cards just so that the could face off against his longtime enemy and then he LOST. He lost badly. This wasn't the… » 5/26/14 11:10am 5/26/14 11:10am

The Gay-Straight Wing-Manning of MTV's Faking It

Confession: I've been wing-manned exactly once... By a straight guy. In a gay bar. He'd accompanied his gay best friend to my favorite dive and that friend had decided to flirt with my friend. Next thing I knew a shitty beer had been thrust into my hand and a straight guy was asking me about what bands I listened to.… » 5/21/14 12:15pm 5/21/14 12:15pm
