This Is Us Reveals the Tragic Truth About Jack Pearson’s Death

Sunday, February 4th, 2018

If you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan who also happens to watch This Is Us, Super Bowl Sunday was an absolute roller coaster of emotions. The elation of that nail-biting win was swiftly cut with the reminder that last we left the Pearsons back in the late ‘90s, their house was going up in flames and Jack’s death was imminent.

Justin Timberlake’s Botched Super Bowl Halftime Show Return Not Princely – Review

Sunday, February 4th, 2018

If the recently ratings challenged NFL wanted to absolutely avoid any semblance of controversy with the Super Bowl LII halftime show, today’s performance by Justin Timberlake certainly succeeded – kind of. Back at the big game for the first time since the infamous Nipplegate wardrobe malfunction with Janet Jackson in 2004, the man behind the recently released Man of the Woods album sang and danced many of his many hits but never really found a groove on Sunday in Minneapolis. In fact, it looks like avoidance was the motto of Timberlake’s third stint in the Super Bowl spotlight.

Sunday, February 4th, 2018

Super Bowl Sunday! It’s here at last, the national holiday when we have to sit through football in order to watch those beloved ads. Lauren Woolstencroft? became the No. 1 trending topic on search engines right after this one aired, and with good reason: Any ad that reminds you to think about how lucky you are, and pushes you to get up off the couch, is a good one.

Saturday Night Live Recap: Natalie Portman Raps About Sex, Drugs, and Jar Jar Binks

Sunday, February 4th, 2018

It’s been a dozen years since Natalie Portman hosted SNL. Back in 2006, she busily fended off questions about life as Queen Amidala in the Star Wars prequels and played off of her genteel image in a savage rap about her proclivities for drugs, doing dirt, and catching the D.
