I was lucky enough to speak with Clinton Kelly and Devyn Simone from TLC’s Love at First Swipe, which premieres tonight (Fri. Oct. 2) at 9pm ET/PT. (For more info on the show, click here!) I asked them to give me some insight on what people do wrong when they’re putting themselves out there, online. Clinton reminded me that online dating is basically self-marketing. “You have to market yourself in a way that makes you stand out from the crowd, or else you’re not going to get any bites.” Some of the mistakes he’s seen in women’s profiles: “They come … Continue reading
The wait is almost over, Walking Dead-heads. And when we left the residents of Alexandria, upheaval was the order of the day. As Rick and Deanna continued to circle each other for control (and the moral mindset) of the community, loose cannon Dr. Pete slit the throat of Deanna’s docile husband and Rick shot him dead on the spot. Right in front of the newly arrived (and newly zen) Morgan, who showed up with Daryl and Aaron, all three having made chilling discoveries outside the gate. Executive producer and zombie master Greg Nicotero promises a Season 6 opener of The … Continue reading
Before having one of the greatest non-wrestling careers in pro wrestling, Paul Heyman was a teenage fan looking for a break. He found his way into Madison Square Garden, earning a few dollars as a photographer. Almost 30 years later, Heyman is gearing up to walk into MSG one more time when his client Brock Lesnar battles the Big Show during a live special on WWE Network Saturday, Oct. 3 at 8/7CT. It marks the first time Lesnar has competed in The Mecca in more than a decade. “As any kid in New York, you live with the legend of … Continue reading
The Leftovers Season 2 premieres Sunday, Oct. 4 at 9/8CT on HBO. As Regina King waited to find out if John Ridley’s brilliant ABC anthology American Crime — which scored the actress her first Emmy — would be renewed, she received a script from a pair of equally compelling storytellers. Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta hoped King would take a lead role in Season 2 of their family-centric HBO spine-tingler The Leftovers, which will further expand the story culled from Perrotta’s best-selling book. “I sat down and talked to them and they’re just so smart — and they want their actors … Continue reading
Perhaps your first, um, exposure to the work of Ken Jeong came in The Hangover, when he, as the flamboyant gangster Mr. Chow, pounced out of a car’s trunk wearing nothing but socks. A select audience knows Jeong as Spanish instructor Señor Chang on Community. Still others may know Jeong as the doctor who gave them an annual physical exam. WHAT? Yes, Jeong is also a real-life physician (he keeps his medical license current during his screen career), and he’s the leading man in ABC’s sitcom Dr. Ken (premiering Friday, Oct. 2, at 8:30pm ET/PT), loosely based on his professional … Continue reading

Summer vacation has arrived for Jack, the girls are cherubic (and potty trained!) chatterboxes and new adventures await. We caught up with Dan and Michelle last week to talk Season … Continue reading
