'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Recap: Jake's Heart is Crushed, And So Is Ours

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Recap: Jake's Heart is Crushed, And So Is O
"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" might be a comedy, and we might have laughed plenty at "The Defense Rests" (if you sat there stonefaced while Holt cackled at the genius of Wuntch's name autocorrecting to "butt," you may be a robot).

But it wasn't the funniest episode of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" history. And that's intentional- "The Defense Rests" is probably the closest thing this show will get to a Serious Emotions episode.

And those Serious Emotions come from Jake and Sophia, finally doing what was foretold when Eva Longoria only signed on for three episodes- breaking up.

At first, it's not a breakup...

'American Sniper' Wins Second Weekend In A Row

'American Sniper' Wins Second Weekend In A Row, Will Become The
This proves it: last weekend's out-of-nowhere "American Sniper" rout (a $90 million rout, no less) was no fluke. The Clint Eastwood-directed, Bradley Cooper-starring film about sniper Chris Kyle has stomped all over the box office for a second weekend in a row, ending in the #1 spot for a second time.

This past weekend, "American Sniper" drew in $64.4 million. Not only is that only a 28% drop from last week's take (far smaller than average, indicating the film has fantastic staying power), but it's got "American Sniper" locked in to become the most successful war film of all time.

"Americ...

Miss Colombia Is Crowned Miss Universe

Miss Colombia, Paulina Vega, Is Crowned Miss Universe
Once more, the powers that be have picked out a new Miss Universe. And that woman is Miss Colombia, Paulina Vega.

Last night, Vega beat out 87 other woman to win the crown- although our own contestant, Miss USA Nia Sanchez, was runner-up.

Vega, despite winning the title, is not a pageant veteran- she admitted that the pageants leading into this year's Miss Universe competition were her first.

And probably her last- Vega is in the middle of a degree in Business Administration, and once she's done parading around the globe in her newly-awarded sash, she'll be returning to school.

On the e...

Alec Baldwin Is Writing A Tell-All Memoir?

Alec Baldwin Is Writing A Tell-All Memoir?
Alec Baldwin might not seem like the ideal memoir-writing celebrity. Let's be honest here- the word "memoir" invites gravitas, the kind of gravitas a James Earl Jones or Martin Scorcese might bring.

Gravitas aside, Baldwin does have a memoir on the way. The book, which will be entitled "Nevertheless," will be published by Harper (a part of HarperCollins) and will release in 2016.

The memoir, as any good memoir should, will cover the entirety of Baldwin's life. And that'll include "hits and flops, marriage, divorce," according to an official statement.

Hey, that might even include all the...

ESPN Analyst Accidentally Pastes His Porn History Into Tweet?

ESPN Analyst Accidentally Pastes His Porn History Into Tweet
Gerry Hamilton, recruiting analyst for ESPN, has done it. He's experienced that horrible, worst-case-scenario embarassment that lurks in the minds of so many average citizens.

Because when Hamilton was tweeting about up-and-coming football recruit Roquan Smith, he thought he was posting a link to Smith's highlight tape.

He wasn't. Instead, the link was from Pornhub.com, and while we haven't seen it, any sane mind can assume that it's a very different video, highlighting something that's probably not football.

And for what it's worth, he eventually re-sent the Tweet with the correct, non-...

What Halftime Sports Show Will Ariana Grande Be Hosting?

Ariana Grande To Rock This Year's NBA All-Star Game Halftime Sho
Do you love basketball? Do you also love Ariana Grande? Do you wish these two seemingly unrelated sports/singers might meld together into a single event?

Well, you're in luck (also, if you were wishing for that extremely specific event, you may have yet-untapped powers of precognition). The NBA has chosen Grande to headline the halftime show at this year's NBA All-Star Game.

There's likely to be more than one world-famous musician at this year's All-Star Game- kind of like last year, when Pharell, Diddy, Snoop Dogg, Nelly and Busta Rhymes all performed at the pre-game show (the half-time ...

'Arrow': 10 Can't-Stop-Sobbing Moments From 'Left Behind'

'Arrow' Recap: 10 Can't-Stop-Sobbing Moments From 'Left Behind'
We kinda figured that this first post-midseason-finale episode of "Arrow" would be an intense one.

Oliver Queen did die, after all. That's cause for some intense emotions to bubble up to the surface of this already very emotional superhero show.

But by no means were we expecting that much emotion. "Left Behind" was like a superhero funeral dirge. The equivalent of a small mountain of superhero-strength Kleenex.

Some serious sad times.

Alright, enough moping around- let's get to this week's list.

10. Diggle is the New Arrow?

It sure seemed that way, didn't it. Crooks are doing crook-li...

Will Ferrell Nails Cheerleader In The Face With A Basketball

...For a movie, we should add. "Will Ferrell Nails Cheerleader in the Face With a Basketball..." for a movie.

But movie or not, the "Anchorman" star has still given one unlucky cheerleader a (probably) pretty sizable basketball-dimpled face bruise.

Ferrell's been filming his latest movie, "Daddy's Home," which recently included a trip to New Orleans' Smoothie King Center, for a surprise appearance in a Pelicans/Lakers game.

At halftime, Ferrell wandered onto the court to shoot a couple half-court shots- one of which, of course, is the fateful ball that slammed into so much cheerleader fa...

'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Recap: Jews, Penis Jewelry, And Other Online Dating No-Nos

January 22nd, 2015 9:59am EST
'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Recap: Jews, Penis Jewelry,
When it comes to online dating, which is the biggest faux pas?

Having your cock ring slip off mid-date? Sleeping with hordes of what could colloquially be referred to as "toad men?" Screaming that you're going to "rate" everyone in an upscale restaurant? It really sounds like "rape" if you scream it loud enough.

Well, we're not going to answer this great moral quandary. And neither is "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," even as "The Gang Group Dates" demonstrates just how badly the Gang can torpedo an online date.

Here's the situation: Dee introduces the Gang to a site called Bunchers, ...

Kim Kardashian Strips Down To A Fur Bikini In Snowy Weather

Kim Kardashian Strips Down To A Fur Bikini In Snowy Weather
Might Kim Kardashian be a little jealous of Amber Rose?

After Rose blew the doors off of Instagram (presuming that Instagram has doors), Kardashian posted a few racy Instagram photos of her own, in a similar (although far less revealing) string bikini.

But what Kardashian lacks in sheer near-nudity, she makes up for in theme: in the photos (one of which can be spotted above), Kardashian is rocking a fur bikini in a snowy landscape.

Or, a "furkini," as was captioned by Kardashian in one pic. Along with a credit to her husband, Kanye West, for snapping the pic (we can assume he was rockin...
