Can We Stop Judging Each Other When Our Tots Play With Tablets?

by

When my son was under 2 years old, I broke one of the major guidelines set forth by the American Academy of Pediatrics: I let him watch television. For years, the organization has recommended that children under two avoid screen time altogether, but I can count on one hand the number of mom friends I have who follow...

Elisabeth Hasselbeck Leaving “The View” To Join…Wait For It…FOX News

by

I will watch any television show which begins with “The.” If a network produced a series called “The Sock,” I would be on the couch, popcorn bowl at the ready every Thursday night at 8. It’s apparent I have relatively low standards for television programming and this goes a long way towards explaining my irrational

Dear Everyone: Get Your Dirty Paws Off My Leftovers! [Essay]

by

Someone needs to write a book on Leftover Etiquette immediately before people start dying. People have been killed for lesser things, mind you. This woman allegedly choked her husband to death for turning off her television so it’s hardly a stretch to envision murderous rampages over someone eating someone’s leftovers, particularly if pizza is involved.

by

This post is sponsored by Netflix. …… Last August I was on a production lot in Culver City, CA walking toward a soundstage where I would eventually sit on a talk show to wax poetic about kids and the various ways you can exploit them online for money when I passed by a certain iconic

Dress Like Your Television: Shoshanna Shapiro Of ‘Girls’

by

When we first meet Shoshanna Shapiro of HBO‘s Girls, we realize that her character seems to be there merely for comic relief. She’s in with the girls because she’s Jessa’s cousin, not because they are actually friends. She’s sweet, excited about everything, super naive, undersexed, obsessed with the Sex and the City ideal idea (“This

by

Over the weekend, I sat down with every intention to watch the first episode of HBO‘s Girls and then spend the rest of my day, you know, parenting my children. And then, before I knew it, I was halfway through the second episode of the second season. I don’t even know how it happened, really.

Dress Like Your Television: The Crawley Sisters of ‘Downton Abbey’

by

According to my Facebook feed, my Twitter stream, and my Pinterest account, I'm clearly not the only Downton Abbey fangirl out there. The surprise BBC Masterpiece Classic period piece slash British soap opera hit has everyone talking—about the jaw-dropping moments (have no fear, folks, I'm only halfway through season 2—no spoilers here), about the compelling upstairs/downstairs storylines, and, of...

Heidi Montag And Spencer Pratt Have The Best Tin Foil Hats Money Can Buy

by How many doomsday predictions do we get nowadays? Is it at least one per year? It seemed like they were spotty and isolated (ie, Heaven’s Gate) through the last half of the 20th century but since the apocalypse-boner-killer that was Y2K, people are just really jonesing for some kind of cataclysm. The big one, of

What The World Needs Now Is Bromance, Sweet Bromance: The ‘Entourage’ Movie Has Been Greenlit

by Once upon a time a hot young actor hit the big time and had to learn his way around the mysterious, swanky world of Hollywood’s business elite– except he brought his “friends” along and they caused all kinds of problems because of course they did. Also: Jeremy Piven has a punchable mouth. There! We’re caught

LEGO YouTube Channel for Kid Friendly Entertainment

by Technology today is moving so quickly my kids already know how to load up the apps on the TV. And ever since they discovered Star Wars LEGO® YouTube videos (Thank you Uncle Ian!) they want to watch YouTube. Um no. YouTube is full of potentially un-family-friendly videos.  So when I found out LEGO® has an official YouTube Channel full
