Amy Schumer’s Comedy Central Show Inside Amy Schumer consistently blends punchy, joke-driven sketches with thought-provoking takes on pressing social issues. But last night’s episode, a full-length episode parody of 12 Angry Men lampooning the unreasonable body images celebrities are held to, is her most ambitious work yet. More

Lil Jon took a break from kicking ass on “Celebrity Apprentice” and generally living a crunked-out lifestyle to team up with Rock the Vote on “Turn Out for What,” a parody of his and DJ Snake’s chart-topping earworm “Turn Down for What,” aimed at encouraging people to register and show up at the polls this November.
Staring a fall full of new albums, new movies, and a handful of television premieres in the face is always a good position to be in when scheduling late night programming. This week, comedians of various backgrounds stop by the talk show circuit, and Interpol, Death From Above 1979 are among bands with new records rolling through to perform. More
I’m sure Sia’s performance on ‘Late Night With Seth Meyers’ would have been stellar on it’s own, but the addition of Lena Dunham’s quirky interpretive dance moves brought it to a whole other level. The ‘Girls’ creator and star sporting a platinum blonde wig, showcased her eccentric moves while Sia lay motionless in a bunk bed. The performance is definitely weird, but it is exactly what should be expected by a collaboration by these ladies. Below is the original music video featuring the 11-year-old ‘Dance Moms’ star Maddie Ziegler.
Remember the first time you saw your real, post-college paycheck? Your reaction was likely either something along the lines of “Shit. Thanks Obama!

The season’s sixth episode centers around Hannah beginning what’s sure to be a short-lived career as a cubicle rat at GQ magazine. She’s working in a four-person brainstorm group that includes Jessica Williams from “The Daily Show” and two other post-idealistic schlubs who used to be writers. More
Birthday Bitch Hannah (writer/star Lena Dunham) celebrated with her ‘rents and a dubious rendition of a classic from “Rent” on her 25th birthday in this week’s episode of “Girls.” More
Lena Dunham is my hero. Sure, sometimes her Twitter feed surpasses the appropriate level of self-indulgence, and I almost always hate what she’s wearing, but these are not important things in the long run of pop idolatry. I love Lena Dunham because she is nothing but her totally fucked-up, super creative, and unabashedly un-adult self all the time, and her show totally embodies her entire weird personality. This woman will write herself wildly embarrassing (and probably based on real life) roles and scenes, subsequently kick ass acting them out and successful direct her fellow actors. It’s inspiring. She’s a creative genius. Don’t argue with me. Last night, I got a sneak peek at Season 3 of “Girls.” I’ll do my best not to spoil it. More
