Over the weekend, a story about Aziz Ansari was published, in which a woman referred to as “Grace” recounted her date with Ansari, which ended in his apartment and a moment far too many women know: A round of touch-roulette where you try to decide the least awful places and ways to let this person touch you because you’re not getting out of the night without letting him touch something in some way. Full Story

I really loved Master of None Season 2. I almost didn’t watch it, given that I found Season 1 fine, funny at times but not unmissable. Season 2 is a different story. There’s an ambitious arc, there’s Italy, there’s episodes that are doing ambitious things, including two Aziz himself is essentially not in. Full Story

If we have learned one thing from Taylor Swift, it is that there is no charm in fake surprise at an awards show win. Genuine surprise makes great TV – the gasping and gulping and ‘you like me!’ that fuels social media the next day—but the calm, faux splutter of ‘well gosh, I don’t know what to say, um… I mean, uh… my team, I…” is not cute. Full Story

Yesterday Lainey wrote about TV FOMO in the age of Peak TV, and how hard it is to keep up with the sheer volume of shows available now. With something like 500 scripted shows airing in 2017 across all platforms, it is virtually impossible to see everything. Full Story

After a terrible episode with Felicity Jones, Saturday Night Live rebounded on a make-or-break weekend with Aziz Ansari hosting. A show that strives for topicality and cultural relevance CANNOT f*ck up not only an inauguration weekend, but the most divisive inauguration in recent memory, one that included an inauguration speech straight out of a YA dystopia novel and a huge, Richter Scale-rocking movement on Saturday as millions across the country and world marched in solidarity with one another for women’s rights, for equal rights, for basic human rights. Full Story

Everything about this win made me so happy. The fact that they won at all, which we’ll come back to.

Dane Cook holds a grudge like a megalomaniac billionaire. And he’s not up on his news – how is he just hearing about Gawker now?! Good ol’ Dane piqued my interest, so if you are wondering what he is so upset about, maybe it’s the time Gawker categorized him as one of America’s worst comedians Full Story
