  1. Samantha Bee Will Host New Show On TBS That Is Not The Daily Show

    Oh! Innnteresting.

    Despite many late night TV fans declaring Daily Show correspondent Samantha Bee a shoe-in to host the show after Jon Stewart leaves—and despite a vaguely worded tweet about good news that left her Twitter followers speculating wildly—Bee announced today that she will leave will actually be joining her husband Jason Jones in creating a new comedy series for TBS instead. Hoo boy, these are some mixed emotions I'm feeling.

  2. Wil Wheaton To Play President Abraham Lincoln In A Video Game Because Life Is Grand

    OMG.

    Four score and seven years ago, Wil Wheaton recorded a bunch of lines for Codename S.T.E.A.M., and now you will be able to hear him in the game when it comes out next week—as ABRAHAM LINCOLN. Wait, this makes total sense. Everyone knows that Abraham Lincoln invented the emoticon, and Wil Wheaton is the current president of the Internet! It fits, I tells ya! It aaaaaall fits!

  3. Swedish TV Host Starts Fire Live on Air While Frying Cheese Doodles for Some Reason

    The Muppets would be so proud.

    Today is Cheese Doodle Day, evidently, so this morning Nyhetsmorgon host Jenny Strömstedt asked her viewers for tips on how to best "prepare" them (because I guess just eating them out of the bag with your greasy cheese-stained fingers isn't proper in Sweden). Then her co-host suggested she try to flip them in the air while frying them over a stove, and everything worked out for the best. Wait. Is the best supposed to be on fire?

  4. FINALLY The Avengers Age Of Ultron Black Widow Funko Pop! Is Here And She Is Rad

    Her sticks! Eeeeeee!

    We were as bummed as anybody when the first batch of Age of Ultron Funko Pop! tie-ins featured all the dudes of the team—including The Vision, even!—and nary a Natasha in sight. Well, THANK GOD they've finally announced one for a May release, and she is exceptional. Look at the belt and bite details! Her hair! The sticks! The firmly planted feet that won't knock over like so many daintier figures! (Lookin' at you, Season 1 Daenerys.)

  6. Here’s The Joke Tim Schafer Made That Has Gamergate Freaking Out

    C'mon.

    Last night, Tim Schafer of Double Fine Games hosted the 15th annual Game Developer's Choice Awards to a room full of his peers at the Game Developer's Conference (GDC) in San Diego. Of course, it would be pretty difficult to make jokes and celebrate the gaming industry without at least mentioning the, ahem, sea lion in the room, and Schafer did so pretty spectacularly. How do we know this? Because all the prominent Gamergaters are losing their shit and calling him a racist. WELP.

  7. Mike Colter Talks About What It’s Like To Be Luke Cage, Gets Pumped For All The Grittiness

    Spoiler alert: it sounds neat.

    You ever notice how when people complain about traditionally white superhero characters being played by POC actors and they start bringing up traditionally black roles to whitewash in retaliation, it's usually either Shaft or Black Panther? Luke Cage tends to stay mostly below the radar—which is honestly surprising, especially considering that he'll soon be a very important part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

  8. [Updated] Applying to HBO’s Diversity Writing Fellowship Was A Total Disaster For Everyone

    Yikes.

    Last week we were encouraged to see HBO seeking out diverse screenwriters as part of their new writing fellowship, but noted that it wasn't without its faults. Now that the opening submission day has come and very quickly gone due to massive site blackouts and crashes, it's abundantly clear that HBO did not think this program through pretty much at all.

  9. HBO’s Streaming-Only Service Will Probably Only Cost You $15 A Month

    Now it's really not TV.

    HBO's still hard at work on their new standalone streaming service, which will provide content like Game of Thrones, Veep, True Detetective, and Silicon Valley to fans who have access to the Internet but not to cable television. Now we know a bit more about what to expect when it finally becomes available—hopefully in time for the Game of Thrones Season 5 premiere!

    Now, this one I don't want to believe.
