The price of power sits heavy on the shaggy head of Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam), the prince-turned-leader of a troubled biker kingdom on FX's Sons of Anarchy, wrapping its fifth and best-yet season tonight with a super-sized 90-minute finale (10/9c). A few weeks ago, in a moment worthy of this series' Shakespearian ambitions, Jax told his disgraced, dethroned evil stepfather Clay (Ron Perlman): "I'm tired of being crushed under the weight of greedy men who believe in nothing."
The Dawson's Creek reunion isn't the only highlight coming our way on Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 this season. In fact, this week's Halloween episode may even put the season premiere to shame as we finally get to see a softer side of the ABC comedy's titular character. That's right, the B is getting some L-- love that is. TVGuide.com hit the set of Apartment 23 to get the scoop on Chloe's (Krysten Ritter) new love interest. Plus: Will there be love for June (Dreama Walker), too?
In this election cycle, the Monday morning quarterbacking that takes place after major political events consists less of determining a winner than it does exploring what new Internet memes were birthed.
Nowhere has that been more evident than after Tuesday's debate between President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney — the second of three verbal contests between the two presidential candidates before the election on Nov. 6. (The final debate will be held next Monday, Oct. 22).
When Romney opted to use the unfortunate wording "binders full of women" to illustrate his efforts to create a diversified Cabinet when he was governor of Massachusetts, the Internet latched onto the phrase faster than Felix Baumgartner plummeted to earth earlier this week. By the time the debate was even over, Romney's description had spawned a Facebook page (which had more than 275,000 "Likes" by mid-morning on Wednesday), a Twitter handle and, perhaps best of all, the website bindersfullofwomen.tumblr.com, which features parody photos of everything from Paula Deen riding on a binder to Romney and Paul Ryan holding Carly Rae Jepsen hostage in a file folder.
Wednesday's debate between President Barack Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney was the most tweeted-about event in U.S. political history, according to Twitter's government and politics team. Users sent 10.3 million debate-related tweets in 90 minutes, with commentary spiking at such memorable moments as Romney's mention of Big Bird as he discussed cutting funding to PBS ("I like Big Bird!" he said) and moderator Jim Lehrer's often unsuccessful attempts to cut the speakers off.
With Happy Endings and Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 airing back-to-back on Tuesdays this fall, the time seems ripe to have two of our favorite comedies cross over — a thought that isn't lost on the executive producers of both shows.
