Rick Grimes v. Walter White

The latest installment in the Epic Rap Battles of History series is that of television anti-heroes Rick Grimes, from The Walking Dead, and Walter White, from Breaking Bad. Both are AMC dramas, but who actually takes the win here? I say Walt has the slight edge, but you make the call.

New Billy Eichner Project

USA has ordered a pilot that sounds amazing. Amy Poehler will executive produce a show called Difficult People starring Billy Eichner, Poehler's "co-star" on Parks and Rec and host of Billy on the Street, and Julie Klausner, close friend of Eichner and writer for Billy on the Street. Also joining the cast is Andrea Martin, Rachel Dratch, and James Urbaniak, who played Rolf on The Office. The show will focus on Eichner and Klausner as two people living in New York City who hate everything and everybody but themselves and pop culture. So...they'll be playing themselves? I'm in. I seriously cannot wait for this! I can tell this is going to be one of my programs.

Mindy Kaling and Vulture

Mindy Kaling had a quick chat with Vulture over the phone where she spoke about the ongoing story line between Mindy and Danny on The Mindy Project. She said it has been easier for her to meet fans than for Chris Messina. Putting the Danny-Mindy will they/won't they story in The Office terms was definitely interesting as she eventually related it to her true feelings in life. The short, intriguing read is here.

Best Movie Characters: 13

The true bad ass in the original Star Wars trilogy. Did he shoot first? Who cares? Do you love him? He knows. He also knows what Chewbacca did. And so does Chewy. He is the cool guy in the world of space activity. I didn't live in the seventies, but I'm pretty sure every kid wanted to be him. He'll be back, too.

Which Friends Were Closest?

Slate has created a pretty neat gadget to use so you can determine how many scenes a certain grouping of the six friends on Friends were in together. For example, 9.5 percent (280) of scenes had all six in them. The most common four character combination is Chandler, Joey, Monica, and Phoebe with forty-two total scenes or 1.4 percent. Only nine total scenes (0.3 percent) had just Ross, Chandler, and Phoebe. It's pretty fun! You can play here.

Twitter 140

Time has once again released its list of the 140 best Twitter feeds of the year. This edition has quite a few quality accounts. B.J. Novak is profiled, as is Colin Jost, DiGiorno Pizza, Ronan Farrow, Aaron Paul, Stephen King, Brandon McCarthy, Faces in Things, and Carrot Facts. I definitely think Rob Delaney should be there, but it's a pretty solid list. To view the whole thing, click here, but the ones I showcased are the best ones anyway.

Best Movie Characters: 14

Interpret this as surprising or not, but this is not the highest Tom Hanks character on the list. Although, it still a pretty damn good character. Forrest Gump. It's the name of the character in the movie of the same name. The man who tells his remarkable story about the army, shrimping, football, Jenny, running, and more. It's a heartfelt film and is widely considered the best ever made. As for this list, Forrest Gump the character is number fourteen.

The White House Correspondent's Dinner with Joel McHale

Stephen Colbert and Seth Meyers are two of the great hosts of the WHCD, but we can add Joel McHale to the list. He's one of the most sarcastic persons ever so it's no surprise that his comedic timing and top notch jokes delivered on this esteemed night and event to host. Just take a gander at his full speech above. You won't regret it. You don't have to, though. Just a suggestion.

Best Movie Characters: 15

White Goodman, the villain in Dodgeball, has defeated all odds and actually become a critically-acclaimed film character. Naturally, it's a good movie and a good character so he makes the top fifteen on this list. And yes, he is another Ben Stiller character. Why would I lie? Wink. He's an awful person, but in the world of the film, Vince Vaughn is a good person...so...yeah.

Ranking Every Show I Watched in the 2013-14 Season

Remember last year when I ranked every television show (cable and network) that I watched in the 2012-2013 television season? Yes, well I did do that. I enjoyed it so much that I thought I'd do it again. But just to clarify these are the true shows that aired in the 2013-2014 television show. I didn't count Breaking Bad. I didn't count The Getaway. I didn't count Louie or Portlandia because of awkward premiere dates. And so on and so forth. There's also some shows I just could not watch this year. Sorry, but Two and a Half Men will go unranked. After compiling this list, I realized there are some shows I should not watch next year either. Speaking of this list, it includes every show I watched, even if it was just one episode. However, that episode had to be start to finish. Some of these were even cancelled. I also don't watch many dramas so don't be upset if NCIS or whatever isn't on here. I'm just not a big fan. I will give a paragraph about each show and my explanation for its placement. Everyone ready? Here we go!

39. 2 Broke Girls (-14 from last year).

This is the epitome of what CBS considers valuable. What, for some reason, millions upon millions of people watch en route to a near-instant renewal. The jokes are just so predictable and unfunny. The characters are one-dimensional cliches. The laugh track is overpowering. Also, one more quick thing. WHY THE HELL IS THERE SO MUCH APPLAUSE FOR JENNIFER COOLIDGE? The year's worst show.

38. Dads (N/A from last year).

Seth Macfarlane is producing a new show? Oh, cool. Seth Green is in it? He's pretty funny. I think. What is he in? Oh, well. I'll watch. And I did watch. And I was horribly disappointed. Dads was just complete garbage compared to the great FOX comedies that followed. I cannot even stand the thought of watching one more episode of that filth. Thank god it was cancelled. It only was the second-to-worst show because the laugh track was slightly better than 2 Broke Girls.

37. The Big Bang Theory (-13 from last year).

I've said everything I've needed to say about this show. I do not hate it because it is not a smart comedy. That's not it at all. I hate it because it lies. It says it's a smart comedy, but that's not true. It's not clever. It's predictable, sophomoric. The opposite of smart. But many shows are like that. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Full House, and Rules of Engagement were all silly comedies like The Big Bang Theory, but at least they didn't try to hide their identity. Sheldon Cooper is the worst, most insufferable character in television history. And one of the most sickening things is the show earned a record renewal because of the 19 million viewer average. Seriously? Billy Eichner put it best.

"Do you watch The Big Bang Theory? You know where Mayim Bialik says 'Maamaaamaaa' and the laughter goes crazy. Then Jim Parsons says 'Maamaamaa' and there's even more laughter?"

36. The Millers (N/A from last year).

Oh, I am so disappointed in Will Arnett. I mean, I was never the biggest Beau Bridges fan, but really, who is? Plus, the mere sight of Margo Martindale makes me want to become allergic to penicillin. But Will Arnett? He played Banks on 30 Rock! He played Gob on Arrested Development! He had these great characters and then The Millers is absolute trash. Yet, CBS renews that over The Crazy Ones. Maybe I'm more disappointed in America's television viewership ideas rather than Will Arnett. Or both.

35. Mike and Molly (-16 from last year).

Let's make this paragraph a letter to Chuck Lorre. Hey, Chuck. We get it. Your shows exploit what you consider to be negative traits. Sad sacks (Two and a Half Men), deadbeats (Mom), being a nerd (The Big Bang Theory), and obesity (Mike and Molly). Maybe being a deadbeat is a negative trait, but still. If you're going to make these shows, at least make them dignified. Also, please free Melissa McCarthy and let her move on to the bigger and better things we know she is capable of moving on to. I will say, though, it is refreshing to see her play the character of Molly on this show. In so many things she does, she plays the same, disgusting, self-obsessed character, but that's not the case on this show. So that's good.

34. Welcome to the Family (N/A from last year).

See, I know the name of Mike O'Malley, but I have no clue what the other actor's name is. I just kept calling him Carlos from Desperate Housewives. Speaking of, that reunion between him and Eva Longoria happened a little quick, didn't it? You know why? They knew they were going to be cancelled. The whole purpose of developing that show was to cancel it. Welcome to the Family was fodder. NBC was never going to even consider renewing it. Ever. There is no universe where that show lives on. The pilot's trailer seemed interesting, but it was all for naught. C'est la vie.

33. Mom (N/A from last year).

I like Anna Faris. She's okay. I get the appeal. Justin Long was cool on the show, too, but in the end, I could not get over the show and all of its CBS-ness. It's certainly an improvement from the normal CBS hits (we'll get to the two good ones later), but it never quite clicked for me. It tackled tougher story lines and I applaud it for that, but maybe it's because of Allison Janey's grotesque nose. I don't know, but something about it just doesn't work for me. Sorry, Chris Pratt.

32. Last Man Standing (N/A from last year).

It's Home Improvement, but with three daughters instead of three sons! That is just insane! Also, give Tim Allen another point for playing the same character again. He's the same in everything. The dysfunctional, yet lovable dad. Just stick to the Buzz Lightyear references. I also feel like they're trying to capitalize on the hipster movement, but just doing so poorly on it. That's what I think. By the way, it's being used as a prime lead in show now. Huh?

31. Men at Work (N/A from last year).

Surprisingly, my favorite character is not Stephen Hyde. It's the long-haired guy! I don't know any of their names except for Gibbs! That tells you what you need to know about the show. It's just...so boring. I say my favorite character is the long-haired guy Tyler (Hashtag remembered), but that's not really saying much. Two questions for you, though. What's the difference between Gibbs and J.B. Smoove? What was the purpose of breaking up the short, stocky guy and his fiancee? We'll never know. Because it was cancelled.

30. Sean Saves the World (N/A from last year).

I hesitate to even put this as high as I have. Was Sean Hayes' new comedy really top thirty material? I guess I worked with what I watched. Each character was such a prominent cliche, their first lines of dialogue practically wrote each of their "character bios." Sean, the working dad who just happens to be gay. Blonde girl from Smash, the friend who just cannot find the right man. Black guy, the hipster friend. Reno 911 Mustache, the stern, bizarre boss. Basically, I did yawn at this show. Perhaps more than once.

29. Hot in Cleveland (N/A from last year).

These characters are so goddamn afraid of commitment. It's worse than Seinfeld. There are literally sometimes three new "love interests" per episode. I can't handle it. They're driving me insane! Yet, this show is good for when you have nothing else to do and you just say, "Sure. It's kinda like The Golden Girls." It's mindless fun. The episodes go in such wacky directions and the guest stars are top notch (Max Greenfield, Angela Kinsey). Plus, Betty White will forever be comedy gold.

28. Trophy Wife (N/A from last year).

ABC sitcoms struggle with having good titles, don't they? (Don't Trust the B-- in Apartment 23, Cougar Town, How to Live with Your Parents for the Rest of Your Life, Trophy Wife, Mixology). It's just too much sometimes. I was surprised this was cancelled, to be honest. Malin Akerman is a poser, but Bradley Whitford was good. Plus, I recognized the little girl from the last Drake and Josh episode and the teeth boy from Super 8. That helped a little. The children were actually bright spots on the show, surprisingly. That's not how it usually goes. Plus, Bert. Bert was the best. Goodbye, Trophy Wife. (By the way, the guy who named all the aforementioned shows also named the new ABC comedy, Selfie. Sigh).

27. The Neighbors (+/- 0 from last year).

This show is ranked no higher and no lower. It is consistent in that way. However, where Trophy Wife succeeded with child actors, The Neighbors failed miserably. The two regular kids and the one alien kid were just so tough to watch. Their acting skills are far below bad. I constantly wanted the three youths to be removed from the show because I just knew the quality would greatly improve if they were gone. However, the quality improved from season one anyway. Too bad it wasn't renewed. It was becoming clever, meta, and self-aware. I'll never forget one of the best lines of the season.

Larry Bird (about the "viewers."): "You mean the two people who forgot to change the channel after Tim Allen?"

So close.

26. Raising Hope (-10 from last year).

Raising Hope went from being about Jimmy, Hope, and the mishaps of Natesville to "What will Bert and Virginia do now?" Cloris Leachman became an afterthought. The two weird employees at the supermarket became bigger characters than Jimmy and Sabrina at times. When it was cancelled and the "series finale plan" was set in motion, I just didn't feel upset about it. I think the show probably had really nothing else to do, so giving it an immediate endgame was a good move from FOX. The show ended on a good note with a callback to the pilot and Jimmy's final narration, but other than that, the season was just "alright."

25. Kroll Show (N/A from last year).

I'm not the biggest Nick Kroll fan. I'm nervous to even call myself a Nick Kroll fan because I'm not sure if I am. Needless to say, I watched some Kroll Show episodes this year and it had some funny sketches, but I just could not get over the major idea that Kroll is gigantic douche. Maybe that's because he played on in basically all sketches, recurring or not. Although, the first sketch of the season was pretty random, but it was also the best one I saw. The concept was just Chelsea Peretti and some random other people running after a train and then the guy on the train threw cakes at them. The words Cake Train showed up at the end. That was it. It was so bizarre, but very funny. The rest of the episodes just didn't have the same tone.

24. The Middle (-15 from last year).

Last year, The Middle had one of, if not the, best season it ever had last year. This year it was just so disappointing. There was nothing good done with the whole Axl-college story line. Brick was just completely pointless the whole year. I just felt really bored with pretty much every episode. The Middle was incredibly repetitive this year and I am rapidly losing interest in the entire show. More and more, what people say is right. It's becoming a rip-off of Malcolm and the Middle, if it wasn't already. Plus, going back and watching every Scrubs episode, it's tough to watch Neil Flynn be so great as The Janitor compared to his current role.

23. The Simpsons (+6 from last year).

Perhaps the only reason The Simpsons moved up this year is because there were more shows I watched this year than last. The LEGO episode was good. Some episodes were okay. Most are just so far below what The Simpsons used to be that they're tough to watch. Every now and then, there will be a one-liner and I'll be brought back to a better time, but that's rare. This show needs to end. The Simpsons needs to end. End it. End it. End it. They need to end this show the right way before it becomes a complete joke. It's already a shell of its former self, but come on. Give it some dignity. Please.

22. The Michael J. Fox Show (N/A from last year).

Fox was great on his own show with the titular aspect and such. He even garnered a Golden Globe nomination. What NBC considered to be its next big hit, ended up cancelled midseason. Well, around midseason. There were some interesting characters and I think the newsroom could have ended up being a great place for comedy, but in the end, the mockumentary format did it in. I hate to say the mockumentary format might be tired on television, but it just might be. The Office popularized the method of television, but there are just a bit too many shows trying to do it. Plus, it made no sense in the world of The Michael J. Fox Show. The actors were clearly uncomfortable talking to the camera and it was rather frustrating, actually. It didn't need to have the mockumentary style. It probably would have been a lot better if it hadn't used it.

21. Modern Family (-7 from last year).

Eh. I will say the only reason Modern Family dropped seven spots is because there were multiple great shows this year. This season of Modern Family was much better than the previous. There were many refreshing story lines and as I write this, my brain tells me to move it up some spots. But I cannot. Because for every Cam and Mitch wedding, there's a repeated story line (like The Middle). For every stellar Phil Dunphy side plot, there is a boring, awkward line from Lily. For every good episode, there's two mediocre ones, like the Australia episode. That one is completely unnecessary. Why do they always have to go on a vacation? However, I think this season did produce my favorite episode of Modern Family. Las Vegas was amazing. It could so easily have become a cliche with messed up stories, but it was clear and well done. Plus, you cannot go wrong with guest stars Patton Oswalt, Fred Armisen, and Stephen Merchant. Nevertheless, this better not win Best Comedy again.

20. Enlisted (N/A from last year).

I thought this was going to be one of those shows where it starts at midseason, has no reason to be picked up, then it is renewed, and it becomes a major hit. But alas, it was cancelled. At times, I questioned if I had an actual interest in the show, but then there would be a scene or a quote that would draw me back in. As first seasons go for a show, Enlisted had a solid one. Unexpectedly, the humor was smart and it had all the potential to become ultimate quality. But it was not to be.

19. Hawaii Five-O (-4 from last year).

It might seem like nearly every show has dropped from last year, but don't worry. Good news is coming. I trust. Yeah, definitely. Okay, anyway, this is one of the only dramas I watch. I'm not even sure why I do watch it, but I enjoy it. Usually, I'm sick of the endless barrage of cop dramas, but Hawaii Five-O is neat. Maybe it's the change of scenery, maybe it's Danny and Steve's bromance. Perhaps it's all Scott Caan. Who knows? All I know is Hawaii Five-O has its fair share of silly, plot-hole filled episodes, but there's still heart there. You can tell the people who make it still care. And that's important.

18. Hollywood Game Night (N/A from last year).

Dear god, I hate Dean Butterworth so much. He and his Scorekeepers have no need to be there. It'd be better if the show had a more intimate feel, the set is just so open. I enjoy the games they play, but the way Jane Lynch introduces them is cringe-inducing. Not to mention, the civilians who try desperately to be like the celebrities are the worst kind. It should just be celebrities playing for charity money. I think that'd be better. I'd rather see Zach Levi, Billy Eichner, and Olivia Wilde than Ron from the junkyard. Still fun, though.

17. Silicon Valley (N/A from last year).

At first, I wasn't sure how I felt about this HBO freshman comedy. I thought it was weird, maybe a bit boring, but then I realized it is so genius. When I heard it was renewed for a second season, I was actually happy. That's when I realized the show was quality in my eyes. The cast is great (Thomas Middleditch, Martin Starr, Amanda Crew, Zach Woods, etc). There is a huge emphasis on awkward humor and I love it. In every episode, there are at least two things to be interested in seeing how they turn out and that is both impressive and important. I like it.

16. Family Guy (+6 from last year).

This season was a near return to form for Family Guy. There were multiple episodes with a Brian-Stewie focus, the best kind. Brian's death was actually handled rather tastefully, even though everyone knew he'd be alive again. And alive he was within the month. Plus, Cleveland Brown finally returned to his hometown in the long awaited and meta He's Bla-ack! episode. The thing with this show is, it constantly is on the edge of falling into the world of trying to appeal to the common denominator. There are some episodes where you can see Seth Macfarlane's comedic genius, but then he goes ahead with the sophomoric and potty humor. Be careful, Seth.

15. Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey (N/A from last year).

This show, man. It is a whimsical journey through time and space. How many times has that sentence been written when talking about Cosmos? Probably numerous times. Still though, it is breathtaking and intelligent. I have learned many a thing from this show and according to some Facebook commenters, Cosmos has brought them to tears. I wouldn't go that far, but it is so much more than simply awe-inspiring. The way every episode is handled is second to none when it comes to non-fiction shows like this. Plus, the theme song is tremendous. I'll say it. Neil deGrasse Tyson has a better voice than Morgan Freeman. You can take that to the metaphorical bank.

14. The Amazing Race (-8 from last year).

2013's spring season with champions Bates and Anthony was much better than the fall 2013 one. I wasn't a big fan of it and I didn't really have a huge rooting interest in any of the teams, other than Leo and Jamal. I actually had to look up the winners because I forgot. (Jason and Amy, by the way). Then, the All-Star season from fall 2014 was an improvement. I had Leo and Jamal again, but also Joey and Meaghan. Jet and Chord ended up being a team I wouldn't mind seeing win the race, but the All-Star season dissolved into a petty, tough-to-watch mess. Dave and Connor are so undeserving. They whined and complained about something that's happened on the show for years. I was not a fan of them. Hopefully it's better again in the autumn.

13. The Crazy Ones (N/A from last year).

I really wish The Crazy Ones was not cancelled. After How I Met Your Mother ended, this was the last respectable comedy CBS had. God forbid CBS respects its viewers and their ability to understand when to laugh. God forbid they allow a laugh track-less comedy. God forbid we lose The Millers instead of The Crazy Ones. It's a shame. It was awesome to see Hamish Linklater on our screens again. The friendship of Andrew and Zach had all the makings of an astounding bromance in television. Robin Williams, of course, would end up riffing in some episodes, but that was just okay. This show was fun, interesting, and engaging. I did so enjoy it. It really is too bad. I'll miss it. It was quite smart. Plus, that theme song was just the best. It's a darn shame.

12. The Goldbergs (N/A from last year).

I think if The Crazy Ones had been renewed, it would have placed ahead of The Goldbergs, but I want to give the 80's family a vote of confidence heading into next year. As the season went on, the show became more and more interesting. The episodes would become some of the more quality ones on television. Every actor on the show is great, something you don't always see on television programs. The two sons especially, Sean Giambrone as Adam and Troy Gentile as Barry. They're both exceptional. Plus, Jeff Garlin is a dream for a family comedy among the Jewish. Really glad this (and all of its pop culture references) will be back. Food for thought here, is Patton Oswalt the new Bob Saget? I just hope it doesn't become repetitive like two other ABC family sitcoms, Modern Family and The Middle. Time will tell.

11. Whose Line Is It Anyway? (N/A from last year).

I included this on the summer list, but it only re-debuted in the summer of 2013, so that's why it's not applicable. Anyway, I would prefer Drew Carey to Aisha Tyler, but that doesn't matter because Colin Mochrie, Ryan Stiles, and Wayne Brady are improv gods. Whether it's Scenes from a Hat or Sound Effects, this show is a guarantee to always have the audience laughing. Colin and Ryan for True Detective season two? Maybe. May. Be.

10. Bob's Burgers (-3 from last year).

Definitely feeling bad about dropping this down three spots, but the top fifteen shows were so tough to order. Anyway, Bob's Burgers is my favorite animated show at the moment, never mind only animated comedies. Some of the humor is not up my alley, like the entire Gene flatulence sequence. Not a fan of that. But there were of course some stellar bright spots in the season that more than earned it a top ten spot. Fort Night, Bob and Deliver, Easy Com-mercial, Easy Go-mercial, The Kids Rob a Train, and The Kids Run Away were all such great episodes this year. The season finale was pretty big for an animated show. However, the best episode of the entire season (and maybe my favorite ever for the show) was The Equestranauts. Just...so flawless.

9. Saturday Night Live (N/A from last year).

Season thirty-nine started and ended with an excellent former cast member hosting. Tina Fey kicked off the transition year and Andy Samberg closed it out. Both were quality episodes, but as I said. This year was a transition year, but a season like that is still better than the best season of most shows. Jason Sudeikis, Fred Armisen, and Bill Hader each did not return to the cast, leaving Seth Meyers and Kenan Thompson as the two longest-tenured cast members. Yet, Meyers was leaving on February 1 to head to Late Night. So it was a season filled with ups (Edward Norton, Paul Rudd) and downs (Charlize Theron, Jim Parsons), but overall a respectable job from Lorne Michaels and crew with so many moving pieces. The best, of course, was Jimmy Fallon's Christmas episode. So many great sketches from that one including the year's best, Twin Bed. Next year will be interesting, seeing how Kate, Taran, Kenan, and Cecily approach the show as the new-found stars. Also, who wants to take bets on what featured players will not return? I say John Milhiser and (maybe) Brooks Wheelan. Beck Bennett and Kyle Mooney will be back, for sure. Speaking of Bennett, I kind of wish he was the new 'Update' anchor with Cecily instead of Colin Jost. Ah, well.

8. New Girl (-6 from last year).

Don't get me wrong. I still love New Girl. I just don't think season three was as good as season two was. Perhaps it was the addition of Coach. We had to get used to Coach. I've gotten used to him now. I'm sure season four will be a return to four. I view season three as the year New Girl needed to establish itself as one of the greats on television right now. Schmidt was perfect all season. He and CeCe are bound to return to one another. Same with Nick and Jess. Winston, however, surprised me this season. Lamorne Morris was amazing and he finally gave some awesome character to Winston. I very much enjoyed him this year. He has Ferguson now! I'm glad Schmidt didn't stay moved out, also. The season started off on a very high note. The first episode, specifically the cold open, of season three was flawless comedy. True American returned later on in the season, but, for the first time, Prince appeared! I love New Girl.

7. Psych (-2 from last year).

Psych's series finale was one of the best I've ever had the pleasure of viewing. Hashtag Shawn and Gus (and Jules?) forever. "How many hats are in the room?" I think Lassie breaking the DVD in half is one of my all-time favorite moments in the history of television. That moment was beautiful. I'm going to count Psych: The Musical as a part of the 2013-14 season, but predominantly, it was just season eight. The eighth season was a bit odd. Anthony Michael Hall and the whole department reshuffling was honestly kind of a superfluous story and I'm glad it was wrapped up somewhat quickly. The penultimate episode with Gus' mind games was strange, for sure, but the finale made up for everything. Woody delivered the season's funniest scene when everyone was in the coroner's office, but there was no body and he thought he was the only one who didn't see the body so he started making up information about it. I miss you, Psych.

6. Billy on the Street (+4 from last year).

Billy Eichner is a comedic genius and so is the Billy Eichner character. I anticipated the return of television's best game show for some time and I'm delighted it's returning for a fourth season. This year's guest stars were certainly the next level of comic goodness. Nothing against Hank Azaria and Rachel Dratch, but when you have Olivia Wilde, Lena Dunham, Neil Patrick Harris, Seth Meyers, Paul Rudd, Joel McHale, Amy Poehler, Patton Oswalt, and Nick Offerman, all in one season that has just ten episodes, you know it's gonna be good. And good it was. Elena returned! Billy left Joel in a tire! There was the Meryl-go-round! He asked a squirter! I'm so happy this show is being recognized and becoming mainstream. Eichner and Klausner forever.

5. How I Met Your Mother (+7 from last year).

Season nine was so brilliant. Season eight was okay (The Time Travelers was amazing), but season nine, the show's final season is where it's at. The entire thing was "set" at Barney and Robin's wedding, but a lot of time was not spent there. The episode spoken entirely in rhyme was enjoyable along with many emotional moments throughout the year. Specifically, How Your Mother Met Me, was amazing. One of the best the show ever produced. Cristin Milioti was an amazing addition to the cast and her rendition of La Vie en Rose moves me every time I hear it. Last Forever, the series finale of the show, was panned by fans, unfortunately. As I've said, there was something profoundly beautiful about it. Yes, maybe reuniting with Robin was unnecessary, but the rest of the episode was everything HIMYM embodied. The farewell was perfect. I'll miss the show for a long while. My missing it will probably...last forever. Wink!

4. Brooklyn Nine-Nine (N/A from last year).

Reinventing the workplace comedy. Brooklyn was easily the year's best new show, let alone best new comedy. Has there ever been a show that had a better first season than Brooklyn Nine-Nine did? Maybe the first season of Scrubs...maybe The Cosby Show...maybe I Love Lucy. But still. Brooklyn's gotta be up there. I mean, seriously, it took no time at all for the show to become a welcomed staple in our homes. We know the characters already, hell we knew them after the first episode. Two Golden Globes were completely unexpected, but who cares about that? The quality is all there. At the beginning of the year, I, regrettably predicted The Michael J. Fox Show would be the best new show. Sorry. Anyway, thank you Andy Samberg, Mike Schur, and Dan Goor. This show takes many different aspects of television in the modern world and spins them. Instead of having a will-they, won't-they arc, they have Jake Peralta stop dragging his feet and admit it already. Instead of having that as the cliffhanger, they actually sent Jake undercover. Instead of constantly making a big deal out of a gay character, he's become much more multi-dimensional than that. This show is so innovative and I trust it will never go full Boyle.

3. Community (+/- 0 from last year).

Community stands pat at the number three show from 2013 to 2014, even though the recent fifth season was streets ahead of the Harmon-less fourth season. I realized I didn't appreciate the fourth season as much because I had come to terms with it potentially being cancelled. When NBC cancelled it this year, I was outraged. The fifth season was a welcome return to form, complete with Zach Braff narration, surprise Chevy Chase cameo, flawless integration of John Oliver and Jonathan Banks, perfect farewell to Donald Glover (Childish Tycoon, Levar Burton, pirates), and many great episodes which Community does so well. The "floor is lava" game, Meow Meow Beenz, Mr. Egypt, and Dungeons and Dragons again! Plus, Annie saved Greendale! (Maybe she can do it again). So many great quotes from this year, too. "I'm eating a churro with my real mouth. Nyam, nyam, nyam," and "We'll definitely be back next year. If not it'll be because an asteroid destroyed all of human civilization. And that's canon." But perhaps the most relevant is this. "This is our show. And it's not over." That was Abed's line to Annie in the season finale. Community is our show. And it's not over. #sixseasonsandamovie.

2. The Mindy Project (+21 from last year).

The Mindy Project for sure had the biggest jump out of all of these shows, whether they went up or down. Last year, I believe I had trouble appreciating its greatness because I was still grieving about The Office and I felt betrayed by Kaling, but now I realize she was right. B.J. Novak's cameo last season swayed me, but now I'm swayed completely. I love this show and I look forward to it every week. It's more than a romantic comedy for television, it's like extremely romantic, but extremely hilarious. I'm sorry, Mindy Kaling. I'm sorry I ranked Mike and Molly ahead of you last year. I don't know what I was thinking. I really don't. I was a fool. Now, I see the light, though. Now, it all makes sense. This show is genius. Ike Barinholtz is amazing as Morgan Tookers. Adam Pally fit in flawlessly as Peter Prentice, nearly making Ed Weeks' Jeremy irrelevant. Pally has even garnered potential Emmy consideration for the role. Plus, the love story of Mindy and Danny is being executed to pure delight. One of the smartest shows on television right now. I cannot wait to see what season three brings us.

1. Parks and Recreation (+3 from last year).

Yes, oh yes, here is the number one show of the year. Parks and Rec. Sadly, it will be ending next year, but it's going to go out on top. This season was awesome, though. I was a bit nervous about the departure of Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe, but it was tastefully done with good heart. Plus, Rashida showed up within episodes! I'm sure they'll both be back for some episodes next year, if not only the finale. Parks and Rec had the best season finale out of every show on television this year. The time jump was amazing and I'm eager to see what happens next. Even though Lowe and Jones are gone, it still has one of, if not the, best cast on television now. Amy Poehler, Adam Scott, Nick Offerman, Aziz Ansari, Retta, Chris Pratt. They're all great. Plus, Craig will be back next season! London, Filibuster, Fluoride, The Cones of Dunshire, Ann and Chris, Anniversaries, Flu Season 2, and Moving Up were all among the best episodes of the season. Plus, the Unity Concert was one of the best musical moments to ever occur in television. Bye bye, Lil' Sebastian!

So what do you think of the list? I think it's a solid one with good rankings and some great shows. What were your favorite programs from the year? It was a good one!

Milestones All Around

This is the ultimate hit. First of all, the Red Sox Twitter feed predicted Dustin Pedroia would do this. Just letting you know that ahead of time. Now here's what he did. The Laser Show hit a grand slam, his second ever, which was good for his 100th career home run and his 500th career RBI. Talk about a quality and impactful swing! Nice going, Pedroia! You're doing big things.

Best Movie Characters: 16

I decided to go all in and only put Ben Stiller's Walter Mitty on this photo. Danny Kaye's was not the same character with the depth and layers so I chose the better version of the character. Walter is a dreamer, but as, I think, the most recent character on the list, he proved in 2013 that he can follow his dream of adventure. Thank you, Stiller and your transition from comedy to dramedy.

Let It Go: Lip Sync

Let It Go - Lip Sync by davemello

For my school's variety show, my friend and I lip synced Let It Go from Frozen. I must say it was quite the enjoyable time and my favorite moment in the history of the world happened at the money note, the climax of the song. Enjoy!

Netflix in Real Life

You watched Breaking Bad, would you now like to watch Jake and the Neverland Pirates? WHAT?! Luckily, we have Buzzfeed here to help us make sense of the intense and strange recommendations Netflix provides us. It's Netflix if people actually spoke like it!

A Decade Since the Friends Finale

Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

The series finale of Friends aired ten years ago this year, all the way back in 2004. That also means the show debuted in 1994, twenty years ago from 2014. That is totally crazy. To celebrate, I shared a video the Today Show posted to honor the comedic phenomenon. Also in the studio, The Rembrandts performed the theme song, I'll Be There for You.

Zoe Jarman Leaves The Mindy Project

Zoe Jarman, who played Betsy Putch on The Mindy Project, has said she will not be returning to the show for the third season as a series regular. However, she has been asked to guest star. I don't think I'll really miss her too much. She never really contributed a whole lot, but still. A farewell to her.

Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special

There's not many things I love more than an NBC prime-time special. In 2015, SNL will be getting another one! This time, it's to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the show. The special will air on February 15, a Sunday, from eight to eleven at night. No cast members have been announced yet, but there's so many that I'm sure it's going to be an extravagantly awesome affair. I cannot wait!

JetBlue Record

JetBlue, the airline, has set a record at Boston's Logan Airport. 128 scheduled flights leaving from Boston in one day. It's an impressive feat and apparently Logan has never sent more from one airline. It even garnered a tweet from Logan! Crazy beans.

Wish I Was Here Trailer

The first trailer for Zach Braff's new movie has been released and I'm still not fully certain I know what it's about. Although, it seems fairly interesting and it's one of those films with heart, at least that's what I see from the trailer. Also in the movie is Josh Gad, Mandy Patinkin, and (oh hell yeah) Donald Faison! Plus, Zach said in the background of one of the scenes is Rowdy, the stuffed dog from Scrubs. I'm interested!

2014 Power Hall of Fame Inductees

It's that time of year again! Late springtime! It's when that Power Hall of Fame ceremony rolls around. After all, I said the inductees would be announced anytime from May 5 to June 23 back in 2011, didn't I? Well, we're in the window. This year, we have five exceptional inductees who join the elite and illustrious group of honorees from years past. Now, there are 26 members of the Power Hall of Fame. The ones who made it jump to that number from 21 are the following.

Billy Joel. A music legend. An unbeatable songwriter. A master of piano. He is going stronger than ever right now, with his own Sirius XM Radio station, a monthly venue to perform at with Madison Square Garden, and stellar gigs, including the Hollywood Bowl and birthday celebrations and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. I'd be remiss to not mention his greatest hits and some of my favorites. Scenes from an Italian Restaurant, My Life, Only the Good Die Young, Allentown, New York State of Mind, Uptown Girl, You May Be Right, She's Got a Way, The Longest Time, and, of course, Piano Man.

B.J. Novak. He is becoming an established Hollywood wunderkind. Naturally, I fell in love with him on the legendary comedy The Office, but then he went ahead and wrote a book that is the envy of the literary world and certainly my own brain. One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories is an instant classic. Not to mention, he starred as Mr. Egypt on the season five finale of Community, stellar songwriter Robert Sherman in Saving Mr. Banks, potential love Jamie on The Mindy Project, and suave future villain Alistair Smythe in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. He is amazing.

Speaking of The Mindy Project (and being amazing), Mindy Kaling is being inducted. She is the funniest woman alive and a personal role model of mine. She, too, started off as a writer and actor on The Office before she landed her own show on FOX, The Mindy Project. She also wrote a hilariously smart memoir, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns), which is a personal favorite of mine. The Mindy Project is one of the best on television and Kaling also had a role in This Is the End. Not to mention, she is one of Twitter's best.

Now, we enter Saturday Night Live territory. Seth Meyers had been on SNL since 2001 and he anchored Weekend Update from 2006 to 2014. He is one of the best all-time hosts of 'Update' and SNL was in a prime when he served as head writer on the show. Meyers now hosts Late Night with Seth Meyers, a very funny show which has already found its groove and is immensely enjoyable. He was named to the 2014 Time 100 list and he will host the Emmy Awards in August. Not to mention he hosted the ESPY's twice and the White House Correspondent's Dinner once.

Tina Fey. She is a comedy legend God. No matter what she does, she will make me laugh. Like Meyers, she was a writer and Weekend Update anchor on Saturday Night Live, but instead of going from SNL to Late Night, she went from SNL to 30 Rock. And 30 Rock is nothing short of an iconic comedy. Her Liz Lemon will forever live in the lore of comedy television. Fey has had a good group of comedic films and she has begun producing some shows for NBC and FOX. Of course, I also have to mention her amazing memoir, Bossypants. Everything she has ever done has warranted her induction on this list.

What do you think about these five inductees? Joel, Kaling, Novak, Fey, and Meyers are a pretty solid class, if you ask me. See you next year, Power Hall!

Better Call...Michael McKean?

That's awesome! He really feels like he'd fit into the world of the show so well. The "Better Call Saul" spin-off of Breaking Bad now has three cast members. Bob Odenkirk, naturally, will play Saul Goodman. Jonathan Banks will return to the role of Mike Erhmantraut. Now, we have Michael McKean, playing a talented lawyer with an affliction known as Dr. Thurber. I'm game! He's definitely one of those "supporting role" types, huh?

Casting the Justice League Movie

Now that DC Comics and Warner Brothers have confirmed Batman v. Superman and the upcoming Justice League movie will film back-to-back with the latter's release date sometime in 2017, many started putting together their dream casts, myself included. Here are my personal selections and a defense:

Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, and Gal Gadot as Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, respectively. These three are a given as they have already been cast! I think all three are good choices, especially Affleck. The trio is slated to each appear in the upcoming Batman v. Superman film. Yes, all three. Clark Kent, Bruce Wayne, and Diana Prince.

Lamorne Morris as Green Lantern. It doesn't seem like DC will want to go back to Ryan Reynolds as Green Lantern so why not switch up the race of the character? Bring back the black Green Lantern! I believe his name is John Stewart? Anyway, I can see Lamorne Morris in this role with the same type of energy that Anthony Mackie brought to the second Captain America. With his character on New Girl, you can see clearly that Morris could play both energetic and silly-ish, but can also be serious. He could bring the same type of presence that Robert Downey Jr. does to Iron Man, despite Ben Affleck kind of assuming the "Downey role." You know, big name actor, lots of skepticism, ultimately an assured pay-off.

Josh Holloway as Aquaman. I don't know the actual person's name, but for some reason Orin sounds right. Holloway really looks the part and that plays big into his favor. Of course, there are so many other options, too. I wouldn't mind Matt Damon, who's been rumored, and Chris Pine wouldn't be too upsetting. Apparently, producers are big on Matthew McConaughey, but I don't know. I think Holloway is good. He obviously has the necessary skill set for a movie like this. He just has to grow his hair and beard back out and he should be fine. I don't need to do much defending for him.

Ryan Gosling as The Flash. I really hope they don't use the television version of Barry Allen for this movie, mainly because of a lot of reasons. The show has yet to premiere and I really don't even agree with that choice. Ryan Gosling would be an amazing choice. Gosling is just one of those guys who belongs in a DC movie and what better time to introduce him than for Justice League. He's obviously so dreamy and could play The Flash a bit sarcastic, but genuine. The only major question is obvious. Is he too much star power for a "minor" role in the film? At least, presumably, smaller than the roles Batman and Superman will have.

Matthew Broderick as Martian ManHunter. I'm not going to even pretend to know what Martian ManHunter's actual name is, but I still think Matthew Broderick would be an exceptional choice. Gosling is a name you hear and think, "Hey, he could be in a DC movie," but for some reason when I thought of Matthew Broderick, I desperately wanted him in the Justice League movie. It just seems like he belongs in it so much. He just seems so right for it. So Martian ManHunter is a logical choice. Hey, if Lex Luthor is going to be played by Jesse Eisenberg, then they can play Martian ManHunter a bit older.

Olivia Wilde as Jade. Why hasn't Olivia Wilde played a superhero yet? There are rumors, apparently, that the Justice League will have two female members in this film and the rumors continued to suggest Jade. Jade is kind of like the female version of Green Lantern and I really like Wilde in that role. Sure, she's a bit of a comedic actress lately, but she was on House! Some suggested Sandra Bullock or Sophia Bush or Mila Kunis and to them, I say, "Eh." Wilde is where it's at.

What do you think? Do you agree? Cast your own version below!

Best Movie Characters: 17

I think this is my favorite Adam Sandler role. The hockey player/grandmother lover/arrogant adult/oddly charming sweetheart/angry psychopath/golfer that is Happy Gilmore. Man, he is a conundrum. Angry is probably the best adjective, though.

White House PSA on Sexual Assault

Benicio Del Toro, Dule Hill, Steve Carell, Daniel Craig, Joe Biden, Barack Obama, and Seth Meyers all helped out with this public service announcement from the White House speaking against sexual assault. This is done well to support the campaign of "1 is 2 Many." Check it out.

Five in Eight

A tribute to Breaking Bad was made by a fan in which you can relieve all five seasons in eight minutes. But isn't that just binge watching it on Netflix anyway? Zing! Anyway, this is still pretty cool and it somehow manages to pack all of the same drama into the allotted time. Maybe that's just because I've already seen the episodes so I get each scene, but c'est la vie.

Best Movie Characters: 18

My personal favorite Ghostbuster is none other than Egon Spengler. He's the best. Smart, introverted, but open with his friends. Some may consider him the third wheel to the Ghostbusters crew, which he probably is, but to me, he'll always be my favorite. Shoutout at Harold Ramis.

Thirteen Questions

The Buzzfeed quiz gets real. It uses actual logic and intense imagery and symbolism to help you discover some of your innermost personality traits instead of "What's your favorite cereal...Lucky Charms...if you picked Lucky Charms, then the American city you are is Detroit." It's pretty neat actually, but remember take it all in and be honest.

Best Movie Characters: 19

One of the oldest characters on this list is Dorothy Gale from The Wizard of Oz. Judy Garland brought such a life to this role that would eventually go on to be nothing short of iconic. And with good reason. After all, she's in the top twenty movie characters ever.

NBC's New Thursday Night Fix

The Community-NBC era went out flawlessly. With Community openly mocking the majority garbage that NBC churns out and inevitably cancels. This summer...fall...winter...you get it. Anyway, there are new shows like Thought Jacker (penny for your thoughts?), Intensive Karen (who has full ability in her legs despite being in a wheelchair), Mr. Egypt (B.J. Novak), and Celebrity Beat-Off (hosted by Questlove). Hats off, Dan Harmon. It depends on what fails!

Emma Stone - Jimmy Fallon: Lip Sync

YEEESSS! The Lip Sync is becoming a regularly recurring bit on The Tonight Show. I hope it shows up as often as possible because man, I do so adore it. In this edition, I have to give the win to Emma Stone. I will always treasure Jimmy Fallon's Fancy and his gleefully giddy dance to Styx, but Emma Stone went all the way to Hook! Hook! Jimmy put it best when he said, "I forgot all about that song." So did everyone else. Plus, John Krasinski, the first person to ever battle Jimmy in a lip sync, has tweeted a challenge to him and Paul Rudd for more lip syncs with past greats.

So here is a list of all competitors in the Lip Sync Battle:

Jimmy Fallon
John Krasinski
Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Stephen Merchant
Paul Rudd
Emma Stone

Only two more are needed for a fairly simple eight person tournament to bring in all the ratings. Naturally, Emily Blunt could compete as she is a co-creator of the battle. Who could the eighth be? Dare I hope for Amy Poehler? You know she'd be amazing. Maybe Kevin James. I feel like Kevin James would do well. I cannot wait for the fruition.

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

Best Movie Characters: 20

Of course Kronk is here! He's one of the best animated characters of all-time. From The Emperor's New Groove and voiced by Patrick Warburton, he is a sweet, funny, dim guy who doesn't really want to be Yzma's henchman, but he doesn't know that. He's also a jack of all trades, what with his cooking ability to add to the mix. We like his spinach puffs.

1001 Movies to See Before We Die

See, now this is dedication. The 1001 movies everyone must see before death. The 1001 considered cultural institutions. They're all here in this full-length movie montage. An astounding feat of video. I cannot imagine how long this took to create, but it is so worth it.

Two Honest Trailers to View

So accurate. The laughs just kept coming when the blue shell made its appearance in the Mario Kart honest trailer. Everything about the Frozen one is completely true. Gloriously hilarious.

Best Movie Characters: 21

Another great literary character and then translated amazingly into becoming a great film character, as well. Atticus Finch, the most just person in the history of fiction. He is just such a role model. Shoutout at Gregory Peck.

Community Will Never Die

Community will never die and neither will its fans. NBC may have cancelled one of the all-time most amazing shows, but it is not over. Hulu and Comedy Central could easily save the show. After all, you don't get to a movie without making six seasons. Never give up. We are not close to letting this be over. Ever.


It's. Not. Over.

Michael Che Lands a New Gig

One of Seth Meyers' favorite New York City club comedians and Saturday Night Live writer, Michael Che is slowly making it to the real big time. He has just been named a new correspondent on The Daily Show! That's a huge thing to be in the world of comedy and I sure am happy for Che. He'll be great.

Steven Spielberg to Direct The BFG

Well, we know it'll be good! Spielberg, an obviously great director, will take the reigns for the big screen adaptation of Roald Dahl's classic The BFG. I did enjoy the book. No word if it will be animated, but I think it'd be cooler if it wasn't. We'll see!

The Parks and Recreation Finale

The season six finale of Parks and Recreation, Moving Up, was probably my favorite of the finale season. Although, Brooklyn Nine-Nine's was pretty good. There are spoilers ahead. The finale featured Leslie taking the job, but staying in Pawnee, Ron's character development, Tom's restaurant success, an amazing Unity concert, and a huge, game-changing time jump three years into the future. This is huge. Also, Jon Hamm! Bye bye, Lil Sebastian.

Seth Meyers Will Host the Emmys

Now that NBC once again has the Emmy Awards in 2014, many thought Jimmy Fallon would host them after a successful 2010 stint. Instead, the equally amazing Seth Meyers will be taking the reigns! I think he is an excellent choice and the beginning monologue will be great filled with his sharp sense of humor and sarcastic wit. I cannot wait!

Fresh Prince Jerseys

On June 29, Alfonso Ribiero will visit the State Spikes, an affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals. To honor his visit, the team has unveiled new baseball uniforms themed to resemble The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air television show. This is pretty neat! Crazy town banana pants.


On June 10, Disney will debut their new animated short, Feast, and then it will run before Big Hero 6 in theaters. Apparently, it is the story of the friendship between a man and his dog and it is revealed through the meals that they share together. Oh ho ho! Color me intrigued, monsieur. Wink.

Best Movie Characters: 22

I think this is the highest ranking action movie character on the list. Probably not. Anyway, we were introduced to John McClane (not John McCain) in Die Hard and we got to ride with him for multiple Die Hard films after that. It's been a fun time, Johnny Boy.

It's a Small World Movie?

This is a movie we'll never seen. Nah, I'm just kidding. I'm sure it will come eventually, but still. The Magic Kingdom, Jungle Cruise, Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, Space Mountain, Tomorrowland (although that one's very close), new Haunted Mansion, and the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad television show, are still in the works and none have come to fruition yet. So let's add It's a Small World to the mix. I can't wait, but I know I'm gonna have to. Jon Turteltaub will direct. Jared Stern will write. Could be good!

New Celebrity Babies

When good celebrities have babies, you have to share the joyous news. Jason Sudeikis and Olivia Wilde welcomed Otis Alexander Sudeikis (and he sure will be funny). Plus, Drew Barrymore welcomed another child, Frankie! Happy days in Hollywood.

From The Princess Bride we fell in love with Mandy Patinkin. His father was killed and he wanted the murderer to prepare to die. He is, of course, Inigo Montoya. Yes. Without a doubt.


For our discrete math class, my friend and I created a biopic of M.C. Escher, a famous artist. There's a lot of throwaway gags, but there's also some heart here. Check it out. Where do you think it ranks among the all-time great Cicero Mello films?

Lietenant Frank Drebin from the Police Squad and Naked Gun movies had to be on the list. Leslie Nielsen plays him and he is just so wrly stoic and hilarious. You just have to love Frank Drebin.

New Dustin Pedroia Bobblehead

April 30 was Dustin Pedroia Bobblehead night at Fenway Park and the bobblehead treatment he got this time around was much more creative and neat than the last time. He's just standing there in the old one, this time he's dirty, bearded, hustling and diving. That's the Pedroia we know. Hashtag Laser Show.

A Couple of Variety Interviews

Variety has posted two great articles which double as interviews with four very funny people. Here, Mindy Kaling and Mike Schur have a friendly conversation. Here, Julie Klausner actually interviews Billy Eichner. These are awesome! So funny.

He's the one who stole the show in The Incredibles, a film which, in itself, stole the show out of what you thought was coming from Pixar. Plus, we'll never forget, "Where is my super suit?!" Thank you Frozone.

MTV Movie Awards Opening

The opening to the 2014 MTV Movie Awards was awesome. It did have Conan O'Brien, yes, but the celebrity cameos were pretty awesome! It's impossible to name them all without being annoying, but they're all in the video. My favorite appearances were Russell Crowe, Fred Armisen, Mindy Kaling, Seth Rogen, Ed Helms, Andy Samberg, Paul Rudd, Adam Scott, and Banksy. Check it out above!

The Big Ask Trailer

Hulu has debuted the trailer for The Big Ask, an upcoming comedy/drama (?) film with a quality cast. Zachary Knighton, Jason Ritter, Gillian Jacobs, and David Krumholtz. You can't go wrong with any one of them. I cannot wait!

Yes, Hermoine Granger of course comes originally from the Harry Potter books. In the books, I prefer Fred Weasley. But in the movies, you gotta go Hermoine. She translates the best onto film, for sure.

The Simpsons Marathon

From August 21 to Labor Day, which is a twelve day period, FXX will air every single episode of The Simpsons in succession. All 522 episodes in 12 days. I couldn't do it. I really couldn't. It's interesting and cool and I wonder if someone can, but I cannot and I know it.
