    Jon Stewart Signs “Exclusive Four-Year Production Pact” With HBO

    Jon Stewart is apparently not as content with his post-Daily Show retirement as a lot of people assumed he would be, because he’s getting back on the saddle again in time for Election 2016. A much smaller, less strenuous, more comfortable saddle, definitely, but still a saddle. Premium cable giant HBO just signed the comedian […]

    ‘Vinyl': Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger’s HBO Series Gets Teaser

    It probably doesn’t require a teaser to get people to want to watch a show about the music industry in 1970s New York, when Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger are two of the names behind it. But HBO released a teaser for Vinyl anyway, and it’s now online for your viewing pleasure. Vinyl stars Bobby […]

    ‘True Detective’ Motion Posters Unveiled (GIFs)

    One of the most under-the-radar developments of the last few years is the “motion poster,” which takes the aesthetic of movie posters and spices them up with some 21st century animation. True Detective motion posters, the show being a grim and darkly philosophical television program for adults, might seem like a weird promotional choice, but nevertheless a […]

    The Iron Throne Toilet: A Fitting Prize for the ‘Game of Thrones’ (Video)

    Time for some honesty – I haven’t seen anything after the first season of Game of Thrones, so if you’re looking for totally up-to-date humor regarding that show (or the books it’s based on), I’m afraid you’ll have to look elsewhere. But if you want some information on an Iron Throne toilet that some guy made, you’re in precisely […]

    If you were one of the millions swept up in the recent HBO true crime miniseries The Jinx, you probably found yourself at least a little bit obsessed with likely serial murderer and charming sociopath Robert Durst.

    ‘Game of Thrones Monopoly’ Is Coming

    The two most vicious interpersonal systems known to man are capitalism and whatever it is you call what they’ve got going on in Westeros. So a combination of Game of Thrones and Monopoly is a match made in Heaven and/or Hell, which is why the recently announced Game of Thrones Monopoly is such an exciting prospect.
