Kevin Murphy On RiffTrax's Return To National Geographic
Have you ever thought to yourself that TV would be more interesting with a commentary track? Well, the folks at National Geographic did.

They've once again enlisted the kings of aftermarket commentary - Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett, collectively known as RiffTrax - to lend their gentle wit to two hours of NatGeo Wild programs.

Total Riff Off airs tonight, and Kevin recently dropped in from back East to talk to us about RiffTrax's second NatGeo go-around as well as the recent RiffTrax Live show.

The guys started December off with their usual RiffTrax Live holiday show,...

Jimmy Fallon And Dwayne Johnson Have An Epic 'Intense Staredown'
Jimmy Fallon and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson pondered the mysteries of the universe during an "Intense Staredown" on Fallon's "Tonight Show" Thursday night.

The two stars donned long Kimono-like outfits and wore long haired wigs while sitting in the snowy mountains to share their wisdom via their thoughts as falling snow and the fog from a smoke machine was blown through their set.

The hilarious bit featured Johnson waxing poetic with his old WWE wrestling nickname and Fallon riffing on Harry Belafonte's classic song "Day-O (The Banana Boat Song)."

One of the funnier moments comes as Johns...

Long after the 2016 elections usher in a new president/vice president pair; after memories of Obama/Biden are left to the pages of history books, Joe Biden will live on- through his single most meaningful contribution to our society.

His memes.

Seriously, the guy is a meme-printing machine (can you actually print a meme? The rules are unclear). And the latest is a whopper. As seen above: our current Vice President, gazing out a White House window with a look of infinite sadness.

It's not even a recent photo- the pic was snapped during a September 18 meeting between Obama and the Presiden...

You Must See This Alien Vs. Predator Themed House Someone In Swe
Traveling across the interwebs this past week, we came across something (from reddit of course) that needs to be shared with our readers. Apparently, someone in Sweden is selling their house. On the outside it looks mostly ordinary but once inside things get kind of weird (but cool in a way).

As you scroll down the page, you’ll start to see an Alien Vs. Predator theme develop. We’re not sure how easy it will be for the owner to sell this house but we wish him the best of luck.

Which Unpleasant TV Characters Do You Work With?

November 8th, 2014 2:00pm EST
Jan Brady
I worked with quite a number of “characters” when I was on staff as an advertising copywriter. I have to say that my two most memorable ones are “Jan Brady” and “Gregory House, M.D.”

As the youngest of three writers at one of my agencies, Jan was between our senior colleague and myself on the org chart. She was the middle sister in her birth family and recreated her center sibling frustrations and anxieties at work every day. Although I was not the focus of Jan’s resentment, (I was “Cindy” in this scenario), I, along with the rest of our co-workers, got treated to a daily (and draining) do...

Chelsea Handler Putin topless
Comedienne Chelsea Handler spoofed an iconic photo of Russian President Vladimir Putin posing shirtless on top of a horse by taking a photo of herself topless and posting it on Instagram.

In the caption she quipped, "Taking this down is sexist. I have every right to prove I have a better body than Putin."

Later, the site did take the photo down and in response, Handler posted the following, "If a man posts a photo of his nipples, it's ok, but not a woman? Are we in 1825?"

The comedienne then reposted the photo once again, with Instagram removing it and releasing the following statement o...

'Impractical Jokers' Scorecard: 'Brother-in-Loss' - Murr Marries
In the second of two new Impractical Jokers episodes this week, Sal, Joe, Q and Murr complicate job interviews, somebody drops their pants, and Murr commits the cardinal sin in the Book of Vulcano by once again involving Sal's sister in the anarchy. Not bad for a season finale.

Challenge #1: Help Unwanted
The Jokers are going into job interviews with resumes created by each other and lines being fed to them; their ultimate goal is to get the job, no matter how idiotic the other three guys make them look. Murr makes a Y2K reference and claims he spent three weeks in a "job simulator" at Goo...
