I admit it. I am a huge fan of the animated show Family Guy. The Griffin family has provided me with much distraction at some of the most stressful points of my daughter Alexis' cancer journey and beyond.
What do Devious Maids and Family Guy have in common? Beyond the obvious hitmaking gene, the people behind these beloved brands just threw two of the most inspiring parties of the year.
Watch the new sitcom Dads, but not because it's good, far from it, but because it's an example of being incredibly offensive without being clever. You know when a white guy tells racist jokes in front of an audience of black people?
It took only minutes for the first conservative conspiracy theories to start pinballing around the Internet. Too many conservatives are twisted enough to take any tragedy -- from Boston to Newtown to Aurora -- and turn it into an opportunity to prance.
Here are two punch lines that remind us of Lincoln's death. One worked for most, the other only for a minority. It had nothing to do with sensitivity about Lincoln's passing, rather it was the approach.
If you've ever seen Family Guy than you knew it was almost guaranteed that Seth MacFarlane was poised to offend lots of people. After all, isn't that why Family Guy is so wildly popular?
Sunday night's Oscars telecast proved one thing: perhaps women should be running the show -- figuratively and otherwise.
Much of the problem has to do with language. Bradley and his friends tend to use the word "freakin" about as often as many teenagers use the word "like." As everyone knows, if you say the word "f*ck" once, it can have a strong dramatic impact.
I'm not here to defend the Teletubbies, though, because, to be frank, they scare the living crap out of me. If they should be banned in Ukraine or anywhere else, I would absolutely applaud such a decision. SpongeBob, on the other hand, is a different story.
Maybe I'm deluding myself. Maybe I just can't stand the thought of losing someone else that I love. Or maybe, just maybe, my faith is on the money when it comes to my sons.
The 2012 Emmy nominations are here and while they got a lot of things right, there were plenty hilarious shows and performers overlooked. Here are 12 ...
A comedy like Ted feels like such a breath of fresh air -- a film that takes chances not just with its premise (a living teddy bear with a predilection for hard partying) but with a sense of humor that's prepared to go to any length (or depth) to get a laugh.
Seth MacFarlane's Ted joins the ranks of Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle and Observe and Report among razor-sharp cultural satires cleverly disguised as dumb comedies.
On June 29, a movie about a talking teddy bear, Ted, will be in theaters across North America. Ted stars Mark Wahlberg (The Big Hit) as a grown man who lives with Ted, a teddy bear brought to life by a magic wish. Will Ted make you laugh? Will Ted make you feel guilty for laughing? As a service, with an early review, we answer every question that you could possibly have about Ted.
I'm a sports person. I'm a people person. I am not a dog person.
