When last seen, Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane was stepping before the camera to turn the honored act of hosting the Oscars into a high-profile act of slut-shaming and ethnic jokes.

Philadelphia News, Weather and Sports from WTXF FOX 29Is Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte stoned or just that dumb? See the Fox 29 anchors totally lose it this morning when they (try to) interview Lochte about his new reality show. Watch until the end. Believe me: it's worth it.
Oh yeah, the whole episode!It's been awhile since there's been much reason to talk about Pennsylvania nate Kate Gosselin, or Kendra Wilkinson after her husband left the Eagles. But in last night's episode of Celebrity Wife Swap, they traded lives. Given that Gosselin is famous for, you know, having eight kids, you can probably guess how Wilkinson fared with the "swap." Or can you? (Yes, yes you can.) This is Bad TV at its Bad TViest.
Honestly, we want only good things for Snooki as long as she stays off our damned TVs. So we hope it's good news that she sold her Cadillac Escalade for $77,000. "The Jersey Shore star put her custom 2011 Cadillac Escalade up for auction on eBay, citing it as "the actual car that she has driven in many of her television appearaces... this is not a vehicle that you can buy every day, it is an opportunity to own a piece of pop culture history!" The car, which has custom wheels, ambient lighting and Snooki's autograph on the hood, was originally listed
It was while watching the previews for next week’s episode of Downton Abbey that a familiar feeling scratched the back of my head. That estate, with all of the beautiful scheming people, it seemed familiar. And then I realize: Update the show by about 60 years, transplant the abbey to Texas, and change the accents, what you have is a much classier version of Dallas.
The reviews are in, folks. Lance Armstrong apparently pulled off the superhuman feat of making himself look worse than ever last night during the first half of his Oprah rehab.The New Yorker's Amy Davidson argued that Lance did not comprehend, much less apologize for, the damage he inflicted on others.Armstrong failed, despite Oprah’s best efforts, to convey any real understanding of the most troubling complaints against him—the ones involving other people: that he induced, bullied, and required other riders to dope along with him; and that he set out to destroy people who told the truth about him.Writing in the Wall
If you've been watching NBC's so-bad-it's-kinda-good-but-mostly-it's-bad show Revolution, you know that the action is increasingly centered in a post-apocalyptic Philadelphia, where tonight's "fall finale" will bring about the much-hoped-for battle between Good and Evil. The show takes place 15 years after electricity stopped working across the planet, ending civilization as we know it. Philadelphia is the capital of the "Monroe Republic," which is led by the evil Sebastian Monroe, who doesn't have a twirly evil mustache, but really should. He makes his headquarters at Independence Hall, and generally gives orders to torture and murder people. Tonight, he'll face off against
MTV, the network that made Snooki a household name, has announced it will air a fundraiser featuring the cast of the Jersey Shore to help with recovery efforts in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. The November 15th program is a cooperative effort with Architecture for Humanity to help rebuild Seaside Heights. Thankfully, it will feature other guests in addition to The Situation and crew. Surely you'll be able to thank fathers of teenage daughters everywhere after they text to donate relief and the bills show up on daddy's Verizon bill. [Philly.com]
Stop what you're doing and watch this video of Colin Farrell, Christopher Walken, and Sam Rockwell—currently promoting their film Seven Psychopaths—read scenes from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. The Internet was created for one reason and one reason only: so that we can hear Christopher Walken say, "All that vajiggle-jaggle is not beautimous."
Bam Margera has issued a public apology after everyone got upset when he tweeted a picture of himself holding a fake gun to a puppy's head. Margera's snarling in the picture and someone off-frame is holding up a sign that says "If she poop's one more time she goes bye bye's." Note the random apostrophes. Animal rights groups spoke out against the picture, citing recent incidents of animal abuse in Chester County. This summer, two dogs were lit on fire. The jackass assures everyone he's an animal lover and would never hurt his puppy or any other pets. [Fox 29]Photo
