Despite his unrelenting claims of confidence ahead of tonight’s Democratic primary, Anthony Weiner finally conceded he’s not going to become the next occupant of Gracie Mansion.
With more than 80 percent of precincts reporting results, Mr. Weiner trails in a distant fifth place, holding about 5 percent of the vote as front-runner Bill de Blasio inches towards 40 percent.
But the sexting scandal-riddled former congressman absorbed the loss with no lump in his throat at Connolly’s Pub and Restaurant tonight.

It certainly didn’t take long for ABC entertainment president Stephen McPherson to fill the void left by Ben Silverman in the “what is he thinking?” department.

The final season of Lost isn’t starting for another five months, but just this week we found out the apparent title of the premiere, thanks to a viral video made with the help of creators Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse (the episode is titled “LA X;” the space is deliberate). And Read More

Here are five words we never thought we’d type: Thank goodness for Shonda Rhimes! The talent-deprived showrunner of Grey’s Anatomy left us with a doozy of a cliffhanger heading into the summer. Both Izzie (disgruntled actress Katherine Heigl) and George (disgruntled actor T.R. Knight) were left on the precipice of death as last night’s season Read More
Monday: Jurassic Park
We happened to catch Jurassic Park last week and we’re happy to report that the film holds up. Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of the best-selling Michael Crichton novel has it all: Scares, laughs, action, thrills, awe-inspiring moments, crazy special effects, red herrings and Jeff Goldblum, strutting around like he’s a geek version Read More
Wither the television villain? That’s the question we found ourselves pondering after last night’s deliciously convoluted edition of Gossip Girl, which prominently featured the show’s resident bad girl, Georgina Sparks. As played by Michelle Trachtenberg, Georgina is like the demon child of Melrose Place’s Amanda Woodward, and, frankly, we cannot get enough of her. We Read More
