Elaine's Big Day
In the “New Girl” season finale, CeCe’s big day turned out to be an even bigger day for someone else. That, along with a few pranks, a frisky badger and the rise of a new love triangle, made for a satisfying end to a hilarious and upbeat sophomore season.

The day of CeCe’s wedding found Nick and Jess in a happy and joyous mood. The two spent much of their time flirting with one another, to the disproval of Jess’ dad (Rob Reiner) and the annoyance of the other roommates. Winston and Schmidt were particularly annoyed when a more grown-up Nick refused to take part in their silly hijinks, whic...

Mila Kunis
Prom season is finally upon us, and while high schools kids are busy planning the perfect prom night, we’re busy fantasizing over the celebrities we would love to be our prom dates.

Mila Kunis: Mila Kunis was recently named FHM Magazine’s ‘Sexiest Woman in the World,’ and with a title like that, it’d be foolish not to include her on this list. In addition to her beauty, Mila is incredibly funny, as proven by her comedic roles in “Family Guy,” “Friends with Benefits” and “Ted.” Who wouldn’t want to spend their prom night with a gal who’s funny and sexy?

Jennifer Lawrence: Though the ph...

All or Nothing
The season finale of “Glee” featured big guest stars, a big audition and a big competition—but the overall episode was a tad underwhelming and left some burning questions unanswered.

One of these major unanswered questions is in regards to Rachel and her big Broadway audition: Did she get the part? Despite being the show’s leading lady, Lea Michele was noticeably absent for most of the episode. As Rachel, she gave a tearjerker of a performance for her final “Funny Girl” callback, but there are no clues that indicate the role is hers.

The start of the episode found Brittany in meeting with...

'New Girl' Recap: Romance Blooms On 'Winston's Birthday'

Winston's Birthday
Despite being titled “Winston’s Birthday,” the penultimate episode of the season had very little to do with the birthday boy. Instead the story focused on the romantic progress of three “New Girl” couples as the gang prepared to send CeCe down the aisle.

Jess and Nick

The morning after Jess and Nick’s special night started out very sweetly. Nick prepared an interesting yet slightly disgusting tray of breakfast goodies to serve to Jess in bed. It didn’t look edible, but it’s the thought that counts, right? Unfortunately the considerate gesture went unnoticed by Jess as the morning after tu...

School of Rock

May 7, 2013 marks National Teacher Day, and to honor those who have educated and inspired us, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite onscreen teachers.

Dewey Finn (Jack Black), “School of Rock” (2003)

Dewey Finn may have been a rowdy, unemployed wannabe rock star, but after scheming his way into the classroom he became a new kind of role model. Dewey taught his students the true meaning of rock ‘n’ roll and encouraged them to rock out in every aspect of their lives.

Memorable Quote: “I have been touched by your kids... and I'm pretty sure that I've touched them.”
