The X-Files will be back in January

The X-Files is coming back soon, and it’s bringing Haley Joel Osment and Ryan Murphy along with it. Fox released a press release earlier today, announcing that the second season of its X-Files revival project—and the show’s 11th season overall—will premiere on January 3, 2018.

Let us now acknowledge this Nicki Minaj magazine cover

In 2014, Kim Kardashian solemnly vowed to “Break The Internet” with her racy Paper magazine cover, a cataclysmic event that sent the stock market plummeting and thoughtlessly left millions of travelers stranded. Having apparently learned nothing, Paper is now out to “Break The Internet” this time with a new issue…

NBC is developing the first network drama with a majority Asian cast 

Although South Korea is famous worldwide for its TV dramas and the obsessive fandom that surrounds them, on American TV, shows with majority Asian casts have been relegated to the sitcom world. (And it’s not like there have been a ton of those, either. At the moment, there’s only one: ABC’s Fresh Off The Boat.) That’s…

FXX orders a fifth and final season of You're The Worst 

The season finale of FXX’s You’re The Worst is on tonight, but the network isn’t even going to make anyone sit through it before revealing that it won’t really be the end for Jimmy and Gretchen. Unfortunately, though, the end is actually in sight now. That’s because FXX has picked up You’re The Worst for a fifth and…

Watch Mark Hamill show up on Disney's Star Wars ride, blowing nerds' minds forever

Though it’s well known that there are 54 possible ride sequences for fans to experience on Disneyland’s Star Tours attraction, it’s unlikely anyone visiting the park imagined one of them would feature the real life Luke Skywalker. But this week, in the midst of receiving their hum-drum safety speech from a park…

Christian Bale unveils his sizzling Dick Cheney bod

Christian Bale loves punishing his body as much as he does film crews. In the name of art, the actor became a living skeleton for The Machinist, packed on the muscle for the Batman movies, then sagged into sadness for American Hustle. It’s probably not entirely healthy or necessary, but it’s resulted in some truly…

Here are 2 seconds of new Star Wars: The Last Jedi footage, but they’re good, we promise

We have reached the point in what is now an annual Star Wars hype cycle in which microscopic marketing movements are the source of endless scrutiny—details related to packaging, poster placements, publicity itineraries, and so on are all scoured for new outfits, plot points, and lore. In the case of Rogue One, all…

Trump voters think Hillary Clinton should be impeached, even though she doesn’t have a job

As has recently been the case, the Trump administration’s massive, concerted effort to misdirect American voters is working. While a handful of very real accusations of collusion with Russia to fix the 2016 election threaten to, if not sink, then severely undermine Republican power, the right-wing establishment is…

Good news for a change: Carrie Fisher's dog is doing well

There may be some hope for this world after all: Carrie Fisher’s beloved therapy dog is hanging in there, despite the sudden loss of his human mom last year. Carrie Fisher’s sister Joely told Good Morning America that Gary the French Bulldog lives with Corby, Carrie’s assistant, and is keeping his cookie coffers…

Gal Gadot says she didn’t get Brett Ratner cut from Wonder Woman 2

Over the weekend, Page Six cited an anonymous source who claimed that Gal Gadot was refusing to star in Wonder Woman 2 if Brett Ratner, whom several actresses recently accused of sexual harassment, was involved in any way. Ratner’s RatPac-Dune Entertainment company was one of the financial backers on the first Wonder…

Attention, all Will Smiths: Will Smith needs you

Will Smith is apparently too busy recording bad EDM to speak to journalists about his upcoming Netflix movie, Bright, so it seems the Oscar-nominated actor is recruiting fans to do it for him—but only, he clarifies, if your name is Will Smith. Well, that’s the implication, at least, based on a video posted to…

WikiLeaks set off an attack on Mother Jones’ Trump-Russia site after warning Trump Jr. about it

On Monday, The Atlantic released some correspondence between WikiLeaks and Donald Trump Jr. that showed how the organization tipped off the elder Trump son about PutinTrump.org, a special coverage site from Mother Jones that documents the ties between the current president and Russia. The Atlantic’s investigation also…

Ladies and gentlemen, we have spaghetti burritos now

Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should do something. Like deep-frying a stick of butter, or combining strawberries and pizza. Following up on the recent “sushirrito” craze, chefs Julia and JP from HellthyJunkFood now attempt the spaghetti burrito in a new YouTube video. While wondering why, you may…

Ryan Reynolds beats his brush in the first Deadpool 2 teaser

Deadpool director Tim Miller left the sequel last year over tonal differences—where he wanted to move past the first (and very successful) film’s raunchy humor and turn up the action, star Ryan Reynolds wanted to maintain the bawdiness. It was kind of a shame, since Deadpool was a powerful blend of comedy and…

Heartbroken Sean Hannity gives Roy Moore 24 hours to restore his lost innocence

Sean Hannity pivoted tonight like an online publication that’s just caught wind of video, turning his back on Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore after days of championing his cause amidst rumors of a long-established pattern of alleged sexual misconduct. Hannity—who is, of course, motivated at all times only by his…

Papa John's now resorting to literally telling neo-Nazis to fuck off to get people to like them again

It’s been a weird couple of weeks for the Papa John’s online marketing team, as they continue to desperately try to spin their way past negative comments the company’s founder and CEO, John Schnatter, made earlier this month, blaming protesting NFL players for the company’s declining profits. First, they had to watch…

Here's a 19-year-old David Wain on Donahue, yelling about the dangers of marriage

Between our appreciation for Wet Hot American Summer, Childrens Hospital, The State, Stella, Role Models, and more, it’s fairly safe to say we’re fans of comic writer, performer, and director David Wain. But while Wain’s absurdist, deeply silly comic voice is pretty well-established these days, it’s always good to…

Hulu cancels Billy Eichner and Julie Klausner's Difficult People

After three vicious and hilarious seasons, Hulu has decided to cancel its comedy series Difficult People. This comes from Deadline, which says the streaming service decided not to renew the show for a fourth season, meaning its third season finale will now have to be its series finale. Difficult People was one of…
