A new roomie on 'Jersey Shore'?

The gang’s Shore Store boss wasn’t happy with his slacking employees on last night’s episode of “Jersey Shore.” With Vinny out of the picture, he even threatened to hire a new employee/roommate/cast member.

Seriously? You’re expecting hard work from a group of people who’ve made a fortune by getting drunk and fist pumping?

No wonder they’re not interested in printing “GTL” (among the other catch phrases THEY invented) on the butt of some chick’s sweatpants.

The tech approach to dating on 'Big Bang Theory'

Not bad for a few nerds.

Before I get to Thursday's recap, I'd like to note, "The Big Bang Theory" beat "American Idol" head-to-head from 8 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., in the all-important 18-49 demographic.

The Leonard and Penny story arc certainly seems to be attracting viewers. And this time, it wasn't a dream.

'30 Rock' explores romance, 'subordi-friendships'

We got two new episodes of “30 Rock” this week! It was a welcome feast for those of us still recovering from eight months without Liz Lemon.

In the first episode, Jack’s arch nemesis, Devin Banks, returned to blackmail him with more videos of Tracy’s offensive stand up routines. Banks' impossible price? He wanted Jack to get his triplets into an exclusive private school.

Back at Liz’s apartment, Criss was enthralled in his hot dog business - “Yesterday, that was the face, feet, and colon of a pig.” But Liz wrestled with her subconscious, which included not only Jack, but also a pessimistic version of herself (dressed as a pageant queen with a lightsaber).

Friday Top Five: Classic best picture Oscar snubs

Even with the ability to nominate 10 movies for the best picture category, the Academy Awards manages to rile the moviegoing public with snubs, year after year.

This year's round of nominations in the best picture category alone had film fans crying foul over the inclusion of "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close," without any love for the movies some wanted to see acknowledged, such as "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" and "Bridesmaids."

But if history has taught us anything, it's that an Oscar isn't necessarily indicative of what will stand the test of time. If you're annoyed with the Academy for failing to highlight what you thought was one of the best of 2011, take comfort in the fact that these five classics didn't get best picture nods when they were released either.
