Howard's Pitch On 'The Big Bang Theory' - Season 8 Episode 3 Recap

Howard's Pitch On 'The Big Bang Theory' - Season 8 Episode 3 Rec
Howard's pitch idea looked awesome... for a few seconds.

After an episode of watching some pretty fantastic pitches not quite make it to the end of a gymnasium and the epic pulled shoulder from throwing an imaginary baseball on a Nintendo Wii, Howard's idea to throw the first pitch at the Angels' game using the Mars Rover prototype was awesome.

It was a shame that the rover was moving at roughly 1 meter per minute. Even that, though, was probably better than if he had tried to throw the first pitch properly; 60 feet and 6 inches is an awfully long way for a guy Howard's size.

'Family Guy' Season 13 Premiere: 'The Simpsons Guy' Was A Little Weird

'Family Guy' Season 13 Premiere: 'The Simpsons Guy' Was A Little
That was... interesting.

The crossover episode between Family Guy and The Simpsons was an interesting idea that could have had a lot of promise - and before we get into it here, the episode was not bad by any means - it was just weird.

The writers at Family guy clearly made a huge effort to please The Simpsons` audience by proving on a number of occasions that The Simpsons has been a far more successful show for a lot longer than Family Guy. Even during the final 'fight scene' between Peter and Homer there was a direct reference to the awards literally being thrown in Peter's face by Hom...

'Sleepy Hollow' Recap: The Top 10 Awesome Moments From 'The Kind
Here are the ten most insane, amazing, terrifying moments of the second episode of Sleepy Hollow:

1. Ichabod’s Weekly Lesson on Modern Times

'Ray Donovan' Season 2 Finale Recap: Ray Magically Fixes All Of Life's Problems

September 29th, 2014 10:13am EDT
'Ray Donovan' Season 2 Finale
Tensions are running high in "The Captain," "Ray Donovan's" second season finale. And for one reason above all: this season has so many concurrent storylines running all at once that it would take a minor miracle (or act of God) to be able to close them all out in a single hour.

Less, really, when you consider "Ray Donovan" usually wraps things up by the 45-minute mark.

But here are the many things "The Captain" has to take care of:

The fallout from the botched weed robbery.

Steve Knight being a creeper.

Cookie menacing the Donovans.

Ed Cochran menacing different Donov...

'The Real Housewives Of New Jersey' Season 6 Episode 11 Recap: '
It's the First Responders party all over again, but this time it's the men of the Garden State who are about to let the fists fly.

Teresa Guidice is probably glad she chose not to join them down south. She stayed home with her family, not only her nuclear one, but Joe's clan, which includes his parents as well as his brother and his brood. "I'm protected from the world," said Teresa about being with her extended family. Basically because she knows that none of them are going to ask about her legal issues in person or via text like Jacqueline, whose husband Chris reached out to Joe wanting ...

'The Strain' Episode 12 Recap: Owner Of A Lonely Heart

The Strain
Setrakian went a little nuts last week. Something about that whole "yes, there are only four of us, but we have to fight our way through these 80,000 vampires RIGHT FREAKING NOW" thing didn't seem quite right.

Well, "Last Rites," the second-to-last episode of "The Strain's" first season, delves into that part of Setrakian's past that made him such a hardcore vampire hater. The moment when those damn strigoi took typical vampire/vampire hunter business and they made it personal.

Essentially, it goes like this: a middle-aged Setrakian was out one day, perusing the countryside, looking for a...

'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'Trust Issues' - Diane Says Go
After last week's surprising premiere that landed Cary in some serious hot water, showed that Finn still has some claws that he's willing to use, and pushed Peter into a political corner, Alicia Florrick is going to need some serious help in this week's episode of The Good Wife. Thankfully, Taye Diggs has some time off from Murder In The First, and so he's coming to the rescue. Kind of. And Diane finally makes the leap she's been threatening to for weeks now. Everything is not okay, but things are looking pretty good in chapter two.

While Cary remains behind bars, Alicia visits, telling hi...

'Saturday Night Live' Season 40 Premiere: Chris Pratt Proves To Be Perfect Utility Player Host

September 29th, 2014 9:04am EDT
SNL Chris Pratt
To kick off its milestone 40th season, “SNL” entrusted the premiere to first-time guests Chris Pratt and Ariana Grande. Pratt proved to be the perfect utility player host, comfortably slotting into all his roles without overshadowing the cast. His trademark goofy energy could have been put to greater use, but this was an episode of “SNL” that wanted to try out new material and cover some of the most pressing news stories. New cast members Michael Che and Pete Davidson looked perfectly comfortable as they made auspicious debuts. Overall, this was an episode that was not entirely focused ...
