The ratings for NBC’s “Revolution” are finally starting to slip, as the rest of America slowly comes to the realization that THIS SHOW IS A PIECE OF SH*T. (EW)

Funny story: Janeane Garofalo was married to a “Big Bang Theory” writer (formerly a writer on “The Ben Stiller Show”) for over 20 years, and totally forgot about it until the writer needed a divorce to get re-married. (NY Post)

Am I the only one who confuses Olivia D’Abo and Melissa George? Well, the confusion ends now because Olivia D’Abo is probably a very sweet and lovely woman, while Melissa George is a total dick. (WG)

Disney Land’s Thunder Mountain ride is being turned into a television show. Seriously, network television: Just put the pistol in your mouth and pull the goddamn trigger. (Variety)

Here’s 10 strange Golden Globe musical snubs. Wait, what? Purple Rain wuz robbed! Fat Prince is so unhappy about this. (The Film Experience)


James Franco — who won a very important blogger award this week — apparently fell asleep while watching Skyfall over the weekend, although, to be fair, I also fell asleep for about 15 minutes. Then again, that’s the longest stretch of uninterrupted sleep I’ve had in nine months. Franco is just kind of a dolt. (Vulture)

It’s the Amber Heard grin that sells it.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the gender equation, Chris Hemsworth has been named Man of the Year by GQ magazine, although he wastes a perfectly good shirt here BY WEARING IT. (GQ)

Speaking of men, a study has been released that SHOCKINGLY reports that women prefer men with large penises. Damnit, well there’s goes two decades of anecdotal evidence to the contrary. (NY Daily News)

Speaking of studies, our post on why women prefer men with beards also posited that there was a sweet spot between clean shaven and mountain beard. Joe Manganiello has clearly crossed to the other side. (Celebitchy)

Wanna turn your Barbie-loving daughter into a Doctor Who fan? Here are chilling instructions on how to convert a Barbie into a Weeping Angel. (Unreality)

The Hobbit soundtrack is free and available online. (FSR)

You know how dumb I am? Here’s how dumb I am: Stardust is seriously one of my favorite under appreciated films of the last decade, and I totally forgot that Charlie Cox was the lead in that. I’m so blinded by his Boardwalk Empire role that I didn’t even place that he’d also been in “Downton Abbey.

The bizarre thing is that it took an appearance on Jimmy Fallon — where Cox looked unrecognizable compared to the above roles — to jigger that connection in my mind.
