JWOWW honored President's Day by posting, on her blog, her list of "P.I.L.F.'s." We're not going to spell out the acronym for you. You can figure that much out. Her list of eight bangable presidents was pretty standard, but it definitely showed us a different side of JWOWW. You'd think someone who's got such a thing for raging Italian meatheads wouldn't feel much for the intelligent, presidential types. We're really glad to see that she's more dynamic than she appears on "Jersey Shore." Keep shooting high, JWOWW!
Most major film and television characters have an IMDB page listing basic information and episodes or movies they appeared in. But Ron Swanson of "Parks & Recreation" has a real-person page, as an actor/writer. And it is appallingly bare.
While he's credited with writing "Walker, Texas Ranger" and several other Chuck Norris vehicles, it fails to even sniff the true greatness and myriad accomplishments of this man of men. So let's fix this, internet. Help us round out Ron Swanson's IMDB profile. Here are some suggested credits to get the ball rolling:
A couple weeks ago we brought you awesomely overblown board game commercials from the late '80s/early '90s, and now we're doing the same with cereal commercials, that other sector of advertising that uses bright colors and loud noises to Trix trick kids into buying (usually) terrible products.
As an adult, it's staggering to revisit these and see how many are just variations on the "one party stealing the nonsensically unattainable cereal from another party" trope. The similarities don't stop there: Most of them trumpet the doesn't-exist-in-real-life "complete breakfast." Seriously, did ANYBODY ever eat their sugar-centric cereal with banana slices, plus a tall glass of fresh-squeezed, a piece of toast with a perfect square of butter in the center and a blueberry muffin? Also, that's not even healthy! GTFO, cereal industry.
Anyway, on to the commercials that made us fat.
If MTV found itself as a pop culture vanguard in the '80s, the '90s was when MTV defined pop culture. Part of that was due to the emergence of grunge, the rise of hip hop, and the blockbuster music video, but MTV also churned out unique and edgy television shows in that decade. The likes of "Beavis and Butthead," "The Jon Stewart Show," "Headbangers Ball," "The Real World" and "Daria" are iconic. But there were a handful of under-appreciated, short-lived MTV shows from that time that have been kicked into the dustbin of pop culture history.
We're here to give them their due, because while they may not be legendary, these six great, forgotten shows are just as iconic and groundbreaking.

Jenny McCarthy just inked a talk show deal with VH1, just another success to tally up since her breakout as co-host of MTV's "Singled Out" back in the '90s. While that show only aired from 1995-98, it provided an entire horny generation with a lifetime of memories that taught us even we could find love. Or at least rock khakis, a goatee and earth tones while getting groped by Jenny McCarthy.
But whatever happened to the rest of the "Singled Out" cast and celebrity guests? We did some internet digging to find out. Some, like Fergie (!) are household names, while others, like Donkeylips (!) have faded into obscurity.
On the eve of WWE's Elimination Chamber pay per view, the WWE had one of the more awkward weeks in recent memory. Aside from the awesome exchange between Shawn Michaels and Triple H, Raw this week was a total head scratcher. There was some weird debate leading up to the Elimination Chamber match for CM Punk's WWE title, a bunch of ho-hum matches and poor Zack "I'm A Crash Test Dummy" Ryder getting beat up (again). But that wasn't the worst of the worst. Rather than John Cena embracing the hate, he embraced something else. Read on...

Metta World Peace, Chad Ochocino, Prince, Diddy, Mos Def...we're used to celebrities changing their names in strange and often annoying ways because it gets plenty of media coverage. But what about the normal everyday people who go through the absurd amount of government paperwork to change their boring birth names to something head turning? Where is their press?
MTV Clutch's editor recently revealed that as a child, he wanted to legally change his name to "Thundercats Hooooo!" Fortunately, his sensible mom stopped him. However, there are a lot of people who have the same idea and no one stops them. To celebrate their commitment (or mental instability), these are the five most awesome name changes by regular folks we could find.
Two days later and we still have Super Bowl (commercial) fever. We've been on YouTube for days feeding our hunger for awesome Super Bowl ads new and old. And as we traveled further down the rabbit hole, we stumbled across some wonderfully over-the-top commercials from the '80s and early '90s--most of them promoting the SUCKIEST board games ever.
It seems as if every board game company from 1980 to 1996 spent 4 percent of their budget on developing the game and 96 percent on coming up with a kick-ass commercial. And the best part is how they all end with some snotty kid exclaiming, "I win!" But they never show the real outcome, which is one smug, happy child and three other kids crying and/or throwing pieces across the room.
Well today, everyone wins because we're rolling out the nostalgia trunk and have 22 awesome board game commercials from our childhood (or even before some of your were born).
Awful, adjective-laced TV reviews are fun to read. It's a guilty pleasure. Take one disgusted critic's assessment of ABC's canceled sitcom "Work It," in which a pair of guys dress unconvincingly as women to get pharmaceutical sales jobs because they can't find work as men: "Everyone is blind or a fool and every situation exists only to set up something vaguely resembling a joke," writes Alan Sepinwall for Hitfix. "It's hard to tell whether the show is most contemptuous of men, women or anyone dumb enough to watch it."
Maybe there's an odd, therapeutic benefit in digesting someone else's takedown of a show, particularly someone who's sorely disappointed by a show. Maybe TV hounds are simply drawn to scathing reviews in the same way that rubbernecks can't resist scoping an accident or crime scene. It feels like some critics take real joy in spraying haterade. Whatever the reason, check out nine vicious reviews of TV's recent offerings.
As with any scientific study that unearths shocking findings, our peers in the field have been poring over our in-depth look at the hottest anchor ladies in TV news, which found that Bloomberg, not Fox News, employs the hottest anchor ladies. The folks at Business Insider found our study enlightening, though they had a couple issues with our methodology. Namely, that we ignored CNBC altogether.
Well, we're happy to announce that we've been given a grant by the American Media Studies Fellowship (not real) which will allow us to expand our investigation. Meaning more beer, more TV watching and heretofore unexamined anchors (forgive us, Julie Banderas! You were just such an obvious one that we thought we had already included you).
We must be clear--results of the original study have not been tainted; they are still fair and balanced. With the additions, Bloomberg still comes out on top and MSNBC on the bottom. But CNBC, with eight representatives, passed CNN. We never would've guessed the nerds at Bloomberg and CNBC would hire so much eye candy.
Without further ado, the results of our second round of findings: 11 more sexy anchors who we shamefully overlooked before.
