SNL Spoofed HBO’s ‘Girls’ Last Night, and It Was Amazing

Last night, the women of SNL and host Tina Fey knocked it out of the park with this hilarious spoof on the HBO show 'Girls'.

Recap: The Newsroom Season 2, Episode 9 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

In the midst of scheduling disputes with Aaron Sorkin over whether or not he can even write the third season of The Newsroom, the second season over at ACN ended neatly wrapped up in a bow with everyone getting pretty much the happy ending they wanted. I can't say it was satisfying, but it was a fun conclusion.

“The Newsroom” By the Numbers, Because OMG It’s Almost Back [Infographic]

Confession: I love The Newsroom. I don't care that it's so wildly unrealistic, that it portrays women as morons who can't send emails correctly, that everyone talks really fast while saying pseudo-intellectual things. It's all terrible and wonderful and it's back tonight at 10PM.

Recap: Girls Season 2, Episode 10 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

It's all over. Finally. The second season of Girls has come to a grand, overdrawn and plain ol' dramatic conclusion with 'Together'. The title itself is pretty funny considering that none of the characters actually spend anytime together, but rather finish up their respective story lines and wrap up everything neatly for season 3.

Recap: Girls Season 2, Episode 9 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

One more week of this and I think I'm going to write off Girls. It seems to me that HBO made a major mistake in renewing the show so early into it's second season run because all it seems to have done is fallen off in quality.

Recap: Girls Season 2, Episode 8 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

This episode of Girls is almost as equally impressive due to the fact that there are 3 writers credited but (almost) the entire cast had their own, individual, fleshed out, and just plain good story line that we haven't seen since "It's A Shame About Ray."

Recap: Girls Season 2, Episode 6 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

There's something about Ray in this episode where you can literally see the pain of his own self-criticism through his eyes in practically every line he has.

Recap: Girls Season 2, Episode 4 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

Overall, the ideals behind this episode of Girls were much more fleshed-out and just deeper than anything previously explored in the series and I fully appreciate it. While I hope that the rest of the season stays like this episode, I know that's me reaching for something that probably won't happen.

Lena Dunham Snags A Second HBO Show [WTF Friday]

Dunham will be teaming up with "Girls" executive producer Jenni Konner again for memoir about Betty Halbreich. For those who don't know Betty Halbreich, here's the 411.

Recap: Girls Season 2, Episode 2 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

I think Lena Dunham truly heard the criticism from last season. This episode was not only particularly strong, but also not written by her. I think it's the first episode that hasn't had her name in the 'Written By' credit. Maybe that's a sign for things to come in the second season.

Recap: Girls Season 2, Episode 1 [A Bro’s Thoughts]

While the main complaint is that creator Lena Dunham is looked at as some kind of deity by the recent graduate hipster bloggers that love Thought Catalog, the controversial critical acclaim and always-ready-for-debate audience cannot be denied. So what would be a better idea than to do some recaps of Girls from a dude's perspective, right?

The Inner Monologue of Lamby Dunham on the Eve of His Suicide

Yesterday, Lena Dunham rescued a dog. If you look at the photos she posted to her Instagram page, however, one starts to question whether this ragtag pooch really considers himself "rescued"...or just placed in another circle of hell.

Lena Dunham Announced a “GIRLS” Soundtrack

Whether you love HBO's hit show Girls, or you love to hate it, you should be aware that they are releasing a soundtrack. It's for every 20-something semi-hipster who felt like they didn't quite fit in. And I'm excited.

The “Girls” Season 2 Trailer Makes My Heart Sparkle [Video]

Hear me out, all you Dunham-haters. I was once one of you. Heck, a piece of me still wants to punch our pal Lena in the face for being the self-proclaimed "voice" of our generation. Today, however, I watched the full-length trailer for "Girls" Season Two and I've gotta say...I'm really kinda pumped.

Why “GIRLS” Is The WORST New Show On TV

The cat’s been out of the bag for several days now; "GIRLS" has arrived, and it’s probably the most disappointing debut of a show in recent memory.

Why HBO’s ‘Girls’ Is Better Than SATC and Anything Else on TV

If you want to escape to the glamorous side of being young, wild and free, you watch Gossip Girl. For how to be thirty, flirty and fabulous, retreat to Sex and the City. But for a generation of women trying to navigate a discouraging job market and the confusion of their 20s, there's nothing to watch on TV. Not until now, at least. Thanks, Lena Dunham, for 'Girls' -- the best show on television for a lost flock of soon-to-be women.

5 New Fall TV Shows You Won’t Want To Miss

Amidst your old favorites, there are always some new faces. It’s true for the first day of classes and it’s true for the Fall television schedule. With so many new faces this season, though, it's not easy to decide which shows deserve that coveted slot on your DVR and which ones aren't even worth a line on your TV guide.

Coupled. And Fighting Over the Remote

I don’t know about you guys, but when I get home after a long day of interning, working, and gymming, all I want to do is eat dinner and zone out to one of the thousands of Real Housewives or Say Yes to the Dress episodes I have DVR’ed. Unfortunately, my live-in boyfriend isn’t on the same page. Especially now that it’s baseball season.

Summer TV We Can’t Wait To See

I know that most people are excited for beach trips, suntans and reading for pleasure this summer, but what's getting me revved up for the next three months is the totally rad summer TV lineup. After all, sometimes we need to take a break from road trips, slip and slides, and parties and soak in laziness. Agreed?

Girl Crush: Mary-Louise Parker
