  1. My Eyeball Performance of the Year: Orange Is the New Black's Cra...

    Tess Lynch

    Now more than ever, pop culture is about the small stuff — an obscure TV show, a few notes in a pop song, a tweet. To celebrate a year of micro moments, every day a new Grantland writer will highlight one specific thing — a Big Little Thi...

    Tess Lynch

    They must not make monsters like they used to. NBC is taking another spin on the vintage monster merry-go-round with The Wolfman, a series based on the 2010 werewolf film The Wolfman, which starred Benicio del Toro and Anthony Hopkins. The 2010 featu...

  3. For a Price, You Can Now Invite Your Favorite Top Chef Into Your ...

    Tess Lynch

    Top Chef, recently declared too "serious" for the Grantland Reality TV Fantasy League (because, as David Jacoby wrote, it didn't contain enough "concealed erections or denied coitus" — a solid argument), has added another territory to its vast ...

  4. Wait for It: Norway's Slow TV Revolution

    Tess Lynch

    Last Friday in Norway, 1.3 million people watched strangers knit on television. For four hours they tuned in as people talked about knitting, and then they stuck around for eight and a half extra hours of actual knitting. I'm serious. National Kni...

    Tess Lynch

    During American Horror Story: Asylum, the second season of Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk's epic and award-winning horror saga — I personally would give it all the Emmys, because it's daddy's favorite show — there were moments when we viewe...

  6. The First Twitter TV Ratings Are Here, But Do They Actually Tell ...

    Tess Lynch

    Last December, Nielsen announced it had partnered with Twitter to create a ratings system based on tweet chatter. The press release seemed as though it had been written by aliens or robots, even more so than the usual PR statement: You know, everyone...

    Tess Lynch

    A&E announced yesterday that the documentary series Hoarders, which debuted in 2009 as the most-watched series premiere in the network's history among 18-to-49-year-olds, had been canceled after six seasons. The news came four months after the sa...

  8. Carrie Secures an R Rating, Is Poised to Capture the True Horror ...

    Tess Lynch

    A new TV spot advertising the Carrie remake revealed that it's earned an R rating for "bloody violence, disturbing images, language, and some sexual content," which is a relief to anyone who lived through the snoozy made-for-TV movie adaptation in 20...

  9. Afternoon Links: Billie Joe Armstrong Is a Real Actor Now

    Tess Lynch

    Billie Joe Armstrong has been very busy since he completed treatment for substance abuse early last year: Green Day resumed its touring schedule, there are two Green Day documentaries in the works, and oh yeah, Armstrong just signed on to play Leight...

    Tess Lynch

    On the topic of this season of Survivor, subtitled Blood vs. Water, I have a two-point prologue after watching last night's premiere. The first point is that Greg Buis, whom you may remember from Season 1 as the charming gentleman who was later robbe...

    Tess Lynch

    One of the most disconcerting things about being alive is how many interesting things happen every day that you never know about: the books you'd love but will never read; the movies that would change your life but somehow never make it onto your rad...

  12. Afternoon Links: Jimmy Fallon Is in the Joke Empire Business

    Tess Lynch

    To kill time between the approaching finale of Breaking Bad and the Saul Goodman spin-off, we must prepare for a hiatus filled with Walter White parodies and fan-made improvisations, and Jimmy Fallon's spoof "Joking Bad" is a great place to start. Ce...

    Tess Lynch

    This one's for Emily, whose Newsroom recaps are almost enough to make me dive back in — but not quite. Funny or Die has spoofed the opening scene of Sorkin's most divisive show in "A Message to Aaron Sorkin," allowing Luke Barnett (as Will McAv...

  15. Pie Style: An Appreciation

    Tess Lynch

    This season of Food Network Star, its ninth, was awfully weird (and before we review, please put on your spoiler goggles, if necessary). There was Danushka, a model and private chef whose vocal fry, sarcasm, and general don't-give-a-shit demeanor mad...

    Tess Lynch

    Yesterday a new trailer was released for American Horror Story: Coven, the third season of the show I live to recap. It's brief and spooky, as teasers are meant to be, and features roughly half a dozen women in nightshirts stuck to the walls of a sta...
