The Show That the Affluent, Older-Skewing NPR-Set Loves to Embrace Because It Makes Them Feel Hip Is Back!

Here’s the trailer for season three of HBO’s Girls, a show which I love, because of course I do. In fact, I have come around to the conclusion that Girls appeals to people like me more than it appeals to the demographic it represents. Is that verifiably true? I don’t know, but I do know that the people on the Internet who write about Girls the most are NPR-loving professional writers on Slate or The Daily Beast or The Atlantic, who have their sh*t together and like to write about Girls in sort of dreamy critical way, and that the PTA moms at my kid’s school love Girls because, I guess, it provides a connection to that 20-something life that most of them — in fact, most 20-somethings now — never had.

It also gives us plenty of material to write about, and the Internet love/hate relationship fuels those posts, even though the show itself is seen by less people than watch Friends reruns late at night.

Girls returns in January.

Here's some Daveed Diggs for you. On Daveed Diggs' digs, actually. That man does things with clothes that should not make sense, but are absolutely perfect. (Go Fug Yourself)

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
