A Philly queen comes to NYC
We're all anxiously awaiting the return of Mad Men in (gasp) 2012 and dealing with the show's long hiatus in our own ways. We, for instance, drink a martini every Sunday night in honor of Jon Hamm's stunning jaw line, while repeatedly rewatching last season's deliciously shocking finale (has ... More >>
Rudolph ValentinoThis time, it's of the old-school variety. Bring on the classic movie-star cheesecake idols with their privates showing so majorly through their clothes they were almost public. As a bonus at the end, I'm generously including four shots of Jon Hamm, who's new but totally cl ... More >>
Kevin CostnerIn other words, peen photos. You know--where you can see their noodles through their clothes! Enjoy these now--thank me later.
Last night at the White House Correspondents' Dinner, President Obama absolutely eviscerated Donald Trump, who sat there stone-faced, his melon-colored hair glinting obscenely as the president leveled zinger after zinger at him. In short, it was awesome. Obama also laid into Michele Bachmann, Tim ... More >>
Following House Speaker-designate John Boehner's Sir-Weeps-a-Lot moment on 60 Minutes recently, along with the salty, flowing waves of 2010 man-tears (including Charlie Rangel's please don't censure me sobs and Chris Brown's spontaneous waterworks at a Michael Jackson tribute), the Today Show ...

The annual, much ballyhooed issue is slated for November 17th, and tongues are wagging. (All of them publicists', of course.) I suspect it'll be someone like James Franco, Matthew Morrison, Johnny Depp, or Jon Hamm, which is absolutely fine with me. But is there someone else who deserves th ... More >>
AdAge has a fascinating little piece on what TV shows you watch and how that relates to the brands you like, based on information from "psychographic" (eek) "ad targeter" Mindset Media. The data was self-reported by about 25,000 TV viewers across 70-plus shows, most of which ended up attract ... More >>
Back in early April we stumbled upon a Philadelphia Inquirer trend piece all a-drool over the latest meme in man-style: the "Retrosexual." According to the piece, such a fellow, largely inspired by Don Draper, trounced about with a trilby atop his pomaded 'do, clad in a three-piece suit, ciga ... More >>
We will never own one of these. Whee, the 62nd Annual (Primetime!) Emmys have been announced. There aren't that many surprises: As usual, HBO rocks, as does Mad Men, True Blood, 30 Rock, Glee, Neil Patrick Harris, and Tina Fey. Losties may get another chance to see the objects of their affect ... More >>
Congratulations to New York's girl with the most cake, Tina Fey, for winning the 2010 Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, the nation's highest honor for those with easy, grossly unfair access to Jon Hamm comedy. The 30 Rock actress/writer will accept the award in November in a ceremony at th ... More >>
Emmy-nominated The Family Guy featuring Emmy-nominated Seth MacFarlane. For us the joy of the Emmy Nominations, announced this morning, is in the less-well-known categories. We see that there are only two shows, for instance, up for Outstanding Children's Nonfiction Program: Grandpa, Do You Know ... More >>
Kris Allen is the real-life Dr. Drew Baird, the Jon Hamm character that Tina Fey dated on 30 Rock. He lives in a Beautiful Bubble. Michael Becker / FOX.Slash, Classic Rock week mentor After spending the weekend with my 60-year-old Idol-watching dad, I've gained some new insights into the show. A b ... More >>
