NBC Finally Realizes It's Made a Huge Mistake

By Daniel Carlson | Pajiba Love | February 18, 2013 | Comments ()


Just for you people, I actually had to have the "But I'm Googling these pictures of Kate Upton for work! I swear!" discussion. This is Pajiba Love.

"Up All Night" has somehow survived 17 reboots, but it looks like it might finally be dead. (Warming Glow)

I had no idea that some people have been bagging on Kate Upton and calling her overweight. I just do not understand the tangled knot of pathology that leads people to look at a healthy and attractive person and say "ugh fats next lol." Just: why? What's the point of saying anything like that about anybody? This shit gets in people's heads as kids and starts to-- whatever. Internet, you can do better. (Celebitchy)

Seriously, this is what she looks like:


Japan has a giant chocolate statue of John McClane. To paraphrase Lisa Simpson: "I know those words, but that sentence makes no sense." (Unreality)

Talk to your kids about Twitter parody accounts. It's not too late to save the next generation. (BuzzFeed FWD)

NBC is making a show about Hannibal Lecter. You are free here to write your own joke about (a) how NBC is eating itself alive or (b) how the only way anyone would watch "Hannibal" would be if they were held captive in a well below Ted Levine's house. Submit your joke in the comments. Winner gets to bathe in the glow of a job well done. (Warming Glow)

Bungie, the company behind Halo, is planning a game called Destiny that looks like it might actually break new ground in what to expect from modern games. (Polygon)

Maker's Mark was about to cut down on the booze per bottle thanks to supply shortages, but they relented in the face of the furor of an America that just wants a drink at the end of the day, dammit, I know it's Thursday but you don't understand what it's like there. (USA Today and Facebook)

Darth Vader: absentee dad, mouth-breather, and terrible military strategist. (Wired)

A look at the weird but fascinating world of competitive Tetris, which (in addition to being something that actually exists) is built upon the foregone conclusion that winning is impossible. (Chris Higgins)

If you feel like getting nostalgic -- and Google Analytics tells us you probably do -- check out this round-up of YouTube's most dated clips. It reminds me of this supercut where people really like reminding each other that it's the '90s. (Vulture)

Herb Vogel built a world-class art collection and never made more than $23k a year. I'm really starting to wonder if I should be spending so much money on video games. (I'm just kidding; I regret nothing.) (Mental Floss)

With two shows about Sherlock Holmes currently going, maybe it's time we turned to real-life historical figures for our next great detective show. (io9)

This video of Sen. Elizabeth Warren setting fire to Wall Street lawyers made the rounds last week, and with good reason. It's amazing to see someone throwing some heat in Washington just by asking common-sense questions. (Upworthy)

Single in NYC? Bookmark this. You're welcome. (Gothamist)

Have you ever watched a movie specifically because you found out the spoiler/twist and just had to see the craziness for yourself? (Criticwire)
