Friday Night Lights, one of the most acclaimed shows on television with focus on great writing, acting, centred on family values, community support, and featuring strong, complicated, intelligent women has to get down on its knees and beg for renewal every f-cking year.

NHL playoffs begin tonight which means there will be nothing on at my house for 2 months except hockey. Will be at the Canucks game vs the Blues tonight – my favourite time of year. Not only for the on ice action but also for those fans. The hockey whores. It’s freezing, they’re barely dressed, fake nails, hair blown out, hoping for a Pamela Anderson/jumbotron moment or, as a consolation prize, one night with a player – doesn’t matter if he’s married!

Here are photos of the cast of Grey’s Anatomy shooting a mystery wedding scene today for the end of season. Get out your hankies! Ghost boyfriends, brain tumours, proposals, and now a wedding…Shonda Rhimes is trying every trick in the book to keep her show relevant when it stopped being relevant oh a year ago, maybe more? Anyway, if you do care to play photo detective, note that Ellen Pompeo/Meredith is wearing purple underneath that coat. Full Story

This publicity photo was released by Madonna’s agents today. She’s holding baby Mercy from Malawi. As you know, Mercy is still in Malawi while Madge appeals the adoption rejection. Needless to say, this photo of her, glowing and “angelic”, holding the child as everyone else looks miserable beside her… The obviousness just punched me in the face. Full Story
