Will is back in Lima and all the original glee members have returned for the wedding, which results in some surprising Valentine’s Day pairings.
Here’s what you missed on last night’s episode, “I Do”:
Runaway Bride – Emma had been in OCD overdrive in the weeks leading up to the wedding. While everyone, including Will, chalked it up to the demands of being a bride, the stress of possibly having another failed wedding was just too much (I’m sure Sue showing up in a replica of her dress didn’t help either) and she ended up running for the hills. Not a great way for Mr. Schuester to celebrate his return.
Valentine’s Week – As if a day wasn’t enough. Jake was dry when it came to ideas for a gift for Marley, so he enlisted the help of Ryder to make the entire week special. The only problem was that Ryder still has feelings for Marley, so Jake got all the glory while he got all the heartbreak. Marley is a smart girl and figured out that the ideas were coming from him, and when she said thank you, she gave a kiss in return. Poor Ryder! I know Marley’s taken, but I’m not! Come cry on MY shoulder!

And while most of us absolutely hate those people (because they somehow end up making it pretty far and winning more money than they deserve to), Leonard Cooper was different. He was doing pretty well on this episode of Jeorpardy, but he reached the final round and didn’t know the answer.
So what did he do? He came out with possibly the best trivia answer in the history of game shows. Watch the video to hear what he has to say about which American president was the Supreme Allied Commander for the Forces invading Europe.
This week’s episode of Pretty Little Liars, “What becomes of a Broken Heart,” was an episode full of emotions — and not just from me.
This week, each character had to go through some emotional dilemma, dilemmas such as Wes kissing Aria and Spencer going completely insane.
But just in case you missed it, here are five emotional dilemmas you should catch up on:
Caleb’s Uncle is his dad- After Hanna tracks down Caleb’s uncle, she questions him about being Caleb’s dad and as it turns out—drum roll, please— Caleb’s uncle is really his dad! After some heavy convincing done by Hanna, Caleb goes and meets him and, aw, it looks like Rosewood will soon be getting one more big happy family.
Jason is on a mission and his target is Wilden- When Emily goes and sees Jason to try and smooth over Spencer’s accusation of Ali being pregnant with Wilden’s child, we find out that Jason has done some investigating of his own. Looks like he may also suspect Wilden doing the no pants dance with Ali.
Wren is back- Wren is back and he has come to check up on Spencer! With Spencer being one stop away from pyscho town, Wren comes in and tries to save the day. But unfortunately he couldn’t see past Spencer’s plan to get to her competition and attack Mona. Poor Spence! She really needs to get a grip.
Wilden Knew Cici and Ali- After Jason and Emily decided to go through Jason’s dad’s pictures to see if there is any sign that Ali knew Wilden, we find out that Wilden knew both CiCi and Ali. The funny thing is when Emily had asked Cici earlier if she knew him she denied it. Hmm… Wonder what Cici knows and is not telling us.
Jason is missing- As Jason and Emily were leaving Jason’s dad’s office, whom I assume was A tried to trap Jason and Emily in the elevator. Luckily, Emily escaped but Jason was left trapped as the elevator plummeted to the floor. Don’t worry folks Jason survived the accident but went missing while at the hospital. Where is Jason? I don’t know but hopefully we will find out in next week’s installment.
In “Dangerous Territory,” Carrie finds herself on someone else’s turf. She takes a trip into the city for a night with the elite, and finds that she doesn’t quite fit in. This makes her question her new cutie who is part of this world. Carrie’s friends both embark on their own personal dangerous territory. Mouse with the help of Walt tries to educate herself on sex, while Maggie tries to mark her territory – the diner. As usual the group of friends find themselves in sticky situations, but find themselves learning a little something about who they are, and life itself.
1) Outfit of the episode
Normally I am very taken by Carrie’s spunky blazers and cute skirts, but I LOVED this sweater. It’s so simple and Carrie wore it very well with a chunky necklace. I seriously love the costume director for this show, they always put AnnaSophia Robb in the greatest outfits.
2) Carrie has her driving test
The episode starts off with a very confident Carrie at the wheel. She has clearly been prepping herself for the test, and she’s ready to show off her parallel parking skills – but she doesn’t check her blind spot. In this situation, her blind spot is Sebastian Kydd. When Carrie see’s Donna and Sebastian kissing in her rearview mirror, Carrie’s parking test ends terribly. Luckily she is permitted to take it again at a later date.
3) The confrontation
After failing her driving test, Carrie marches right up to Sebastian who confirms that he is dating Donna. Carrie pretends that it doesn’t hurt her, and says she would think it’s pathetic if he hadn’t moved on from whatever they had. In fact, Carrie has moved on – she’s seeing someone as well! Cue Carrie calling the cute new guy she met at work.
4) The New Guy
In typical teenage fashion, Carrie clumsily bumps into George, the son of Manhattan elite’s. George is quickly taken by Carrie, and invites her his mothers fancy Gala. She initially says no, but after her confrontation with Sebastian she accepts the invite.
5) Carrie’s dad loses his wedding ring; cue dating Read more…
It’s a battle of the bitches as the glee kids square off for Diva week and Rachel and Kurt go head to head in New York.
Here’s what you need to know from last night’s episode, “Diva”:
Diva Week – Regionals are around the corner and Finn wanted to light a fire under the glee kids. He decided an in-club diva off was just the solution. All the girls were excited, and while most of the boys sat this one out, Blaine and Unique held their own. Who says guys can’t be divas?
Midnight Madness – Rachel’s recent successes were beginning to go to her head. Kurt couldn’t handle her crazy antics any longer so he decided to challenge her at Midnight Madness AKA NYADA’s fight club. Both belted out “Bring Him Home” from Les Mis and although Rachel was good, Kurt was better. I’m happy that Kurt finally got his diva moment; after all, he should’ve gotten it years ago for “Defying Gravity.”
The original diva – Santana returned to McKinley as the club’s “guest diva”, and made it clear that she was not a fan of Bram (Brittany + Sam, for those of you who are totally out of the loop). After she admitted she dropped out of college and turned down a job as Sue’s successor, she finally decided to head to New York where she belonged. Oh, and did I mention she’s moved in with Kurt and Rachel? There’s a diva-off I can’t wait to see!
Tina Cohen Who? – Read more…
Jimmy Kimmel sat down to talk with kids about some very serious topics: Driving and money. Turns out, kids have absolutely no perspective of age, guessing that most people get their licences in their 40s, 50s and 60s. One kid even guessed tenty-eight (108).
When the late night host asked them what they would do with a million dollars, most of the kids opted to buy selfish big ticket items like big screen TVs and funhouses (with bouncy houses inside). Cutest moment goes to the kid at the end who wants to invest his money in his children and future wife, as well as charity.
In last night’s episode of How I Met Your Mother, Barney made another trip to good ol’ Canada to find out who his fiancé, Robin, was obsessed with.
The episode mentioned some great Canadian staples like The Grey Cup, MuchMusic, and most importantly, Barney paid a visited to a Tim Horton’s (which, by the way, was eerily actually spot on, fake plants and all).
The episode also included another look at Robin’s former life as the Canadian popstar known as Robin Sparkles. Though according to the Behind the Music-like episode of Under the Tunes, Robin’s transformation from bubble-gum pop to the grunge singer Robin Daggers at the 1996 Grey Cup was a moment nobody forgot, a moment where any Canadian could tell you exactly which Tim Horton’s they were in and what doughnut they were eating at the time.
It was the day actor Jason Priestley crammed a timbit into a strawberry vanilla doughnut, which he called “The Priestley.”
Well, it seems like someone at Tim Hortons is a HIMYM fan as they recreated “The Priestley” and tweeted it at the actor himself.

I hope the Priestley actually becomes a thing at all Tim Hortons locations because that is a gorgeous specimen (ahem, Dunkin’ Doughnuts) and I would definitely order a half dozen for myself, thank you very much.
This Thursday Glee goes “Diva,” when the students at McKinley duke it out to see who’s the biggest diva, and Kurt and Rachel in New York start fighting. We get to see a huge production number with “Diva” and get nostalgic about old school Hummelberry back when they hated eachother when the duet/ diva-off with “Bring Him Home.” This is definitely a very diverse episode when it comes to music. “Diva” is jam packed with pop, classic rock, broadway tunes, top 40, and more.
Take a listen to the best 5 songs below
Hung Up – Tina
Tina has been quite the diva lately, so I’m not surprised she has taken on Madonna. Jenna Ushkowitz is severyly underrated. Her voice is so great and she is a great performer.This may be my favourite Tina performance since “Bad Romance.”
Scene Prediction: She’s hung up on Blaine. Get in line Tina. We all are.
Girl On Fire - Santana
Get ready Britana fans. Santana sings TWO songs, one of which she sings with Sam…some fighting over Britney I assume? Anyway, who else to do Alicia Keys but Naya Rivera? Always soulful, always perfect.
Scene Prediction: Santana regrets breaking up with Brittany and in true Glee fashion sings about her problems.
Don’t Stop Me Now – Blaine
Darren Criss can literally sing anything. Beyonce, Katy Perry, and now the iconic Queen. Blaine has been having some issues between his break up and exceedingly confusing crush on Sam, so it makes sense Blaine is trying to get himself back in lin. We all know Blaine is a sassy woman who doesn’t need a man. For further proof go watch “Fighter” or “It’s Not Right But It’s Okay.”
Scene prediction: In his performance to prove he is a “diva” Blaine gets some emotional closure.
Diva- Unique, Tina, Blaine, Kitty, Marly, Brittany Read more…
With the way events turn on Downton Abbey, you could even say that the show deserves a video game. Putting you in the perspective of a new footman at the luxurious estate, YouTuber Bill Kiley has decided to turn the show into a Super Nintendo game…with 16-bit music included!
From fluffing pillows, finding cigars to seeing if Mrs. Patmore is trying to poison poor Matthew Crawley, this game sounds just as juicy as the show!
That being said, is it pathetic that I would actually buy this?
Jimmy Fallon had a tough job ahead of him when a viewer requested he predict the outcome of the Super Bowl using a litter of puppies. Fallon, being the dexterous late night host he is, found a litter of adorable Golden Retrievers, woke them from their peaceful slumber and told them to run for whichever food bowl they thought was tastier.
One bowl was marked “Ravens” and the other was marked “49ers” for Baltimore and San Francisco. Watch to see who they predicted!
Isn’t it nice when the fates align and you’re rewarded for your bravery? Teen Jacob Rudolph came out during a class awards ceremony on Tuesday in front of his 300 classmates and was later surprised by George Takei on television.
The New Jersey high school senior was accepting an award for Class Actor and had this to say to his classmates: “I would like to thank everyone for voting me Class Actor,” Rudolph said. “Sure, I’ve been in a few plays and musicals, but more importantly I’ve been acting every single day of my life.”
“You see, I’ve been acting as someone I’m not. Most of you see me acting every day, you see me acting the part of “straight Jacob,” but I’m actually an LGBT teen – lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender.”
He was met with a standing ovation from his classmates.
While he was on Anderson Live! to talk about the experience, he was surprised with his idol, George Takei. The Star Trek star is openly gay and had encouraging words for him.
Poor Matt Damon is always the butt of the joke when it comes to Jimmy Kimmel’s talk show. Constantly featured in Jimmy’s catchphrase: “Apologies to Matt Damon, we ran out of time!”, Damon FINALLY got his revenge on the talk show host by kidnapping him, taking over the show and inviting a string of A-list celebrities along for the hilarious ride.
You better sit back and prepare yourself to watch a play-by-play of what took place that fateful night. If you missed the show that aired this past Thursday, I can promise that the set of videos that are about to come will cause an emotional whirlwind.
Here’s what went down:
1) Matt Damon kidnapped Jimmy and held him hostage:
Yikes!! Matt Damon is pretty scary when he’s angry. So much so, that it’s kind of borderline psychopathic like The Joker from the Batman series. This is what Jimmy gets for neglecting Matt all these years and calling him “overrated.” Because let’s get real here. It’s F*CKIN MATT DAMON we’re talkin’ about!
It’s been quite a journey for actress Jodi Balfour. Since moving to Canada to perform on shows such as Sanctuary and Supernatural, the South African landed a role in the popular Canadian drama series Bomb Girls. Taking on the part of Gladys Witham, Balfour plays the only daughter of a wealthy family who chooses to defy convention to work in a munitions factory building bombs during World War II. Chatting over the phone with Samantha Lui, the actress revealed what it’s like to play a headstrong 1940’s woman and how she feels empowered in her own life.
Here are five things about Jodi Balfour that make her AWESOME!
She met a real Bomb Girl and listened to her experiences: To prepare for her role as a munitions factory worker, Balfour met up with a family friend’s mother who used to build bombs in England before settling in Canada after the war. Having read that working in the 1940s gave women a feeling of liberation, a sense of purpose and camaraderie among one another, Balfour says she was interested to hear firsthand about the unglamorous and difficult aspects of being a Bomb Girl. “For her, it was kind of arduous and quite challenging for her body and her mind. She doesn’t necessarily look back on the time as her glory years by any stretch,” Balfour says. “She said when (the war) was over, she was quite happy to have a rest because it was quite taxing and grueling physical work!”
She relates a lot to her character, Gladys Witham: Balfour was drawn to Gladys for her sense of strength and her forward-thinking attitude. “I wouldn’t say that I’m nearly as brave or daring as Gladys is in my life but she definitely lives up the dream version of something we’d all like to have the guts to do. In that respect, I think I’m pretty stubborn and strong-willed. I like to get my own way and that’s definitely something I share with the character.” Read more…
Poor Matt Damon just can’t seem to catch a break with Jimmy Kimmel. The late night television host always tries to squeeze the actor into a time slot on his show but they always run out of time. It’s understandable — I mean, given the choice between a Barbershop Quartet and the Good Will Hunting actor you’re going to choose the senior harmonizers every time.
Then Matt Damon FINALLY got his break; A place in the late night lineup that any Hollywood actor would envy to promote his new movie Promised Land. Unfortunately things didn’t go according to plan… or I guess they just followed the status quo when they ran out of time AGAIN.
But seriously, you have to love Matt Damon for playing along and enlightening us with a string of blurred out curse words we’ve never heard before. [Side Note: I feel weird just calling him "Matt" or "Damon," which is why I decided to refer to him by his full name in the entire post. He's just to epic to be called by one name.]

Haters are hating on Glee’s cover of “Baby Got Back” because they didn’t pay much credit to Jonathan Coulton, who originally performed the arrangement. Coulton covered Sir Mixalot 1992′s ode to arses with a slower, more emotional track and couldn’t help but note the similarities on Twitter:
It doesn’t seem like Glee asked permission or paid credit to Coulton at all. But as LiterallyLuke says on YouTube: “Coulton’s songs are released under a Non-commercial Creative Commons license. That means that the songs can be used by people as long as attribution is used and they are not using it commercially. Glee’s use of the song, if they do use it, is a violation of that, even if they credit him. Similarly this channel is in violation as there was no attribution given. Hope that clears things up for some defenders of Glee.”
Listen to the two versions below and let us know what you think in the comments! Also, as someone who watches Glee I find a lot of their covers sound like carbon copies of YouTube arrangements. Can you think of others?

Jimmy Kimmel believes we can learn a lot from kids — they have an interesting take on just about anything and see things in a different way than adults who have pre-conceived notions. Kimmel sat down and asked kids what the differences are between boys and girls. Man, were the answers enlightening.
According to the panel, girls are gentle and boys are vicious animals. Boys have thicker hair and shop less than girls — they also watch WAY more TV than girls apparently. One guy managed to explain the biological difference between boys and girls by going on about “that thing between guys’ legs.”
Two kids managed to accurately and eloquently explain the different body parts with a childhood poem. As Jimmy said: “finally, some honesty!”

Last night was the premiere of The Carrie Diaries, a prequel to Sex in the City, that is supposed to follow Carrie Bradshaw in her teen years. In the pilot we see her lose her childhood innocence and her personality grow into what we we’re used to with older-Carrie. Teen Carrie has more tamed hair, better looking love interests, and a growing wardrobe. If you missed it, here are the big events of the episode. Yes. Carrie Bradshaw’s hair will ALWAYS be “an event.”
1) Carrie’s hair is not big enough
As someone who battles the curl and the frizz and volume that comes with it, I’ve always identified with Carrie Bradshaw’s unruly curly hair. Younger Carrie Bradshaw has beautiful curls that stay in place and are unfairly tame. Naturally curly hair does NOT look like this.
2) Carrie’s family
Carrie’s mom passed away recently leaving her 14-year-old sister Dorit especially angsty (drinking, drugs, you name it), and her father unsure how to be both maternal and paternal. The two sisters give very believable performances in their rivalry and resulting truce. Of course, I side with Carrie the eldest, and my younger sister sides with Dorit.
After Dorrit defaced her mother’s purse so that Carrie wouldnt get to have it because “she gets everything,” we see Ms. Bradshaw do the most in character thing yet — she splashes nail polish all over the purse, and paints “Carrie” in fuchsia pink cursive writing. Amazing.
4) Carrie’s friends
I miss Charlotte, Miranda, and Samantha…but I like her three new friends Mouse, Walt, and Maggie. Like the friends in Sex in the City, the friends talk mainly about sex, and boys…which excludes Walt. A great moment is when Mouse talks about losing her virgnity, and Maggie follows. Shocker? Maggie is dating Walt. This is not because Walt seems a tad too well dressed with his polos and popped collar. Maggie claims Walt wants to keep it a secret, Walt claims he never slept with her. The ending montage puts an end to all our questions and suspicions
5) Love interest Read more…
Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell had one of the funniest bits during last night’s Golden Globes ceremony (save Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s opening monologue) when they improvised their presentation for the Best Actress in a Comedy/Musical category.
Every year, the Golden Globes asks presenters to watch all the films in their category, which Ferrell and Wiig totally did. They swear. Soon, we realized, they had absolutely no idea what each of the movies were actually about.
“Emily Blunt – Salmon Fishing In The Yemen. Beautiful. When the salmon are coming out…” said Ferrell. “Judi Dench. Where did she come from? Unknown. She used to be a police officer,” he continued.
About Jennifer Lawrence, who won the award for Silver Linings Playbook, Ferrell said: “Jennifer Lawrence. J-Law. And the silver… I thought it was an animated film.”
Although they didn’t get around to watching the movies in their category, the two SNL alums are luckily trained in improvisation. In fact, I think they should be understudies at next year’s Golden Globes because of their clear ability to bullsh*t through anything!

Ellen wasn’t the only big winner at The People’s Choice Awards on Jan. 9. The Wanted won their VERY FIRST award for Best Breakout Artist (yay!) and they decided to say thank you by singing a bluegrass song dedicated to Ellen, since she has been a huge advocate for them. Ellen gave the guys their first big break a year ago today, when she invited them on the show.
The band was so thankful that they decided to surprise Ellen on her show this morning with bouquets of flowers and kisses.
“We never forgot that,” said Jay McGuiness. “It’s been a very good year for us but the whole time, we never forgot. You took a big risk.”
Ellen was flattered but said she knew they would make it big and was happy to help them in any way she could. “Here’s to another year better than that so that you again, dedicate every speech to me,” she said.
What would you do for a bouquet of flowers from The Wanted?
