Cheryl Hines on Mocking, Embracing the Suburbs in ABC’s New Comedy Suburgatory

Cheryl Hines, Suburgatory

As Suburgatory's Dallas, Cheryl Hines is a big-haired, energy drink-chugging, slang-slinging suburban mom straight out of Bravo's Real Housewives. She just wants the best for her daughter, Dalia, and so she buys her too-short shorts and even tighter tops, all of which stuns city girl Tessa, their new neighbor who, with her single dad, George, just moved into town from Manhattan. It's through Tessa's horrified eyes — and uber snarky narration — that viewers are introduced to a version of suburbia ripe for the mocking, where pastel sweatsuits and frozen lattes are still the uniform and meal of choice for moms and every girl in high school is recovering from a nose job.

In the first episode of the ABC comedy (premiering Wednesday at 8:30/7:30c), Dallas offers to help ease Tessa (Jane Levy) into her new life by taking her to the mall where Dallas can help her out of her "lesbian boots" and into "a nice heterosexual dress shoe."

Glee: The 10 Best and 10 Worst Performances

Glee

We know. With hundreds of numbers to choose from, the only appropriate reaction to such a list is: Only 10 best performances? Are there such things as "worst" Glee performances?

Our omissions are even more stunning, but know they were mighty tough calls. "Somebody to Love" or "Keep Holding On"? There's only room for one power pop ballad that moves you to tears. Kurt, we salute your inspired "Single Ladies" moves, but that song wasn't so much sung as it was danced to. "Proud Mary" was so good, but in terms of jaw-dropping performances from Artie, we had to go with another.

Saturday Night Live Vet Paula Pell to Play Ron Swanson’s Mom on Parks and Recreation

Nick Offerman and Paula Pell

The third Tammy in Ron Swanson's life has taken form: Saturday Night Live veteran Paula Pell has been cast as Parks and Recreation's Mama Swanson -- or Tammy, Ground Zero if you like.

Mama Swanson will be introduced early on in Season 4 along with Ron's never-before-seen, super scary first wife Tammy 1, who will be played by Patricia Clarkson.

Series executive producer Mike Schur told TVGuide.com that Ron's mom is "no shrinking violet," and a character breakdown for the role describes her as "a no-nonsense, patriotic, salt-of-the-earth farm woman."

Insiders say Ron (Nick Offerman) may be in for a Tammy tornado when all three Tammys gather in the same episode. read more

The Daily Show

In this clip from Tuesday's Daily Show, Jon Stewart rips Newsweek a new one for its cover image of Republican presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann. "Newsweek! Newsweek! That's a s----- picture of Michele Bachmann, and clearly not an accidentally s----- picture of Michele Bachmann," he notes. He then runs through several shots of Bachmann that are far more flattering than the one on the magazine's cover, noting, "You gotta go pretty far out of your way to find a crappy photo of Michele Bachmann, and you did. Why?" And then, the kicker...
