Ahead of the Curve: Weekly pop culture calendar

Before you make plans with your DVR for Wednesday night, consider making a date with Bradley Cooper instead.

His action-comedy-romance “Hit and Run” hits theaters on Hump Day, and word on the World Wide Web is that it’s pretty darn funny.

Here’s what else you shouldn’t miss this week:


  • The finale of “Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition” airs at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
  • Or check out a new episode of “Keeping up with the Kardashians” on E! at 9.


  • Tune in to see who gets kicked off ABC’s “Bachelor Pad” at 8 p.m. ET.
  • “Stars Earn Stripes” airs on NBC at 9 p.m. ET.
  • Need a laugh? watch Maya Rudolph on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”


  • See what A is up to on ABC Family’s “Pretty Little Liars” at 8 p.m. ET.
  • Watch the newly-engaged Jimmy Kimmel chat with Jordin Sparks about “Sparkle” on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
  • Did you miss the first season of “Revenge”? Pick up the first season on DVD and get ready for season 2, which premieres next month.
  • DJ Khaled’s “Kiss the Ring” also drops today.


  • It’s couples’ night on late night TV. Dax Shepard will drop by “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”
  • Meanwhile, the lovely Kristen Bell pays a visit to Jimmy Fallon.
  • Both Shepard and Bell, along with Cooper, star in “Hit and Run,” which hits theaters tonight.


  • Catch Charlize Theron on “Conan” tonight.


  • It was recently reported that actress Zoe Saldana will star in the Nina Simone biopic. We wonder if she’ll talk about it on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon”?
  • In theaters today: The Joseph Gordon-Levitt-starrer “Premium Rush” and Ashley Greene’s horror flick “The Apparition.”

  6. Wow

    This is some of the lamest posting I've ever seen. Nothing posted on topic, just pure nonsense, and probably by the same person. How lame are you people anyway. By the way, the racial posts are pretty much the lowest. I can't imagine any ADULT would post like this. Why don't you little morons give it a rest? Go outside & play!

    to the person who said white people eat marshmallows....Most of my entire family is from Italy however next generation was born in America - does the comment about not liking white people pertain to Italian-Americans? I understand men prefer bimbos who "pretend" to be white nowadays, however don't insult my upbringing because you hate white women.

    To the user called Enrique who posted about black people that is one of the most disgusting things I have ever read. Try use a site like http://www.freetreasure.com.au that helps clean up the community and maybe someone will recycle you on there. Clean up your act mate

    I just saw The Hungry Games and that little colored girl ruined it for me. No one would ever I tire Rue as a black person. It ruined the whole movie. Everyome knows that in the future there ate no black people. They have all killed each other off through their luusst for drugs and bling.
