Starting next Monday, Pete Holmes will have his own show on TBS. Until then, he has to be content to stop by Conan O’ Brien‘s show to plug his forthcoming show, which will be on TBS following Conan. Among the topics he touched on were the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-like concussion he got from a near-car accident and his mom’s disapproval of him dropping the F-bomb on TV. He also dropped in a quick Conan impression that didn’t exactly impress the host. Read More
Yesterday we got a press release stating that Sarah Silverman would be releasing the pilot she shot in 2012 for NBC and boom it’s here today! The pilot was never picked up by the network but she managed to get the folks at the production company, Twentieth Century Fox to let her post it on Jash. So watch up. The show, Susan 313 features Silverman moving back into her apartment after the ending of a relationship with her longtime boyfriend (Jeff Goldblum) and trying to get her life back. The show featured a lot of great people including Tig Notaro, Eddie Pepitone, Harris Whittels, and June Diane Raphael. Read More
Another Sunday night, another night not watching The Walking Dead. But after reading everyone’s tweets, here is my review:
Season Four: Episode Two (Original air date: October 20, 2013)
Last night’s episode featured dead pigs & rats, a woman named Carol who killed her husband in front of her daughters and was “Cray cray crazyyy as fckkk!”
The big question on everyone’s mind: Who will be the first to get shot now that Carl has his gun again? Sounds to me like Carl is the George Zimmerman of TWD. Just to be safe, I wouldn’t wear a hoodie or eat Skittles around him.
Also, Maggie has to keep her shit together. Maggie sounds like the Amanda Bynes of TWD. If at any point Maggie throws a bong out a window or says she wants Drake to murder her vagina, get her into protective custody immediately. Read More

If you are in NYC near Washington Square Park, you should be hearing the smooth sounds of Childish Gambino, the rap altar ego of Donald Glover. Gambino announced a secret/pop up show via Twitter just moments ago. It’s a publicity stunt to promote Gambino’s forthcoming album, Because The Internet which is due out this December 10th. On a Instagram post last week, Glover did state that his label might push the record back but right now it seems business as usual.
Here’s the album’s first single, “3005” stream it as you head to Washington Square Park. Read More
