Here's the opening page of our parody of Sherman Hemsley's classic sitcom The Jeffersons, by Stan Hart and Angelo Torres from MAD #191.
George Zimmerman, the man accused of killing an unarmed Florida teenager, dropped plans for a second television interview on The View after ABC would not provide a month of “shelter and security” for his family, his attorney said Thursday. What the attorney did not say was that “shelter and security” were only two of the demands made by his client. In fact, Zimmerman had so many demands that insiders say Barbara Walters’ panties were really twisted in a knot. Eewww…
British chef Gordon Ramsay's show, Hell's Kitchen, somehow remains a ratings hit. Just who’s watching this repetitive, profanity-laced reality show? To find out, we called the A.C. Nielsen ratings company. Until they get back to us (and it's been several weeks now), here's our best guess.
Now that the 4th of July has passed and the stray fires from illegal fireworks have been extinguished, and the pungent smell of vomit from Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest at Coney Island is but a fading memory, we have time to reflect on something that took place in New York City this holiday week: the marriage of Alec Baldwin to Hilaria Thomas — a woman not quite half his age.
Ann Curry has left her co-anchor position on NBC's The Today Show, saying a tearful goodbye to viewers just as NBC execs were saying a tearful goodbye to the show's 852-week streak as morning ratings champ. Officially, Ann was ousted from the position after Good Morning America took the top ratings spot, but who can say what really happened in the fast-and-furious-and-forgettable world of morning TV? We can.
Dallas is back! Massively popular in the 1980s, the nighttime soap is returning to television tonight, continuing the epic story of the wealthy Ewing family and all of the drama that comes with their 1% lifestyle. What better way to catch up on the saga than with MAD's 1981 parody, "Dullus"?
Season five of Mad Men has finally come to its conclusion. The show truly brought us back to a simpler time when a man could get by on identity theft, womanizing, and alcoholism alone. But through it all, Don Draper retained his title as the coolest douchebag on television — although it could have gone in a different direction. We obtained some lines cut from the fifth season that, even if he turned up the charm to full blast, Mr. Draper himself couldn't have sold...
Recently, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth made their engagement public — probably after Hemsworth decided he’d be a doofus if he didn’t get in on those sweet, sweet Disney dollars. Hemsworth bought a 3.5 karat diamond to replace that abstinence “purity ring” she conveniently stopped wearing. The couple has found that planning a wedding is difficult no matter how rich and famous you are (for now). Lucky for us, we’ve obtained a list of the expenses that even the Beverly Hillbillies would hoot and holler over.
