Something terrible is happening: networks are announcing the dates of their *gulp* season finales of all of our favorite shows. How could we let this happen?! What am I going to do in that endless, sweaty showhole normal folks call summer?!
Thankfully, I've been through this before, and I know how to handle the post-TV season panic in a way that is more productive than chaining myself to that sculpture in the The CW's headquarter's lobby. I just need to remind myself that that my Netflix and Bravo are still my entertainment lifesavers, and in mid-March, most shows are still in production. Also, thanks to an ever-evolving television schedule, some shows are just beginning production.
Earlier this week, EW.com reported that the one and only Angie Tribeca herself was guest-starring on ABC's black-ish as Rainbow's sister. If you thought it was too good to be true, we know now have photographic proof! In the snap above posted by star Tracee Ellis-Ross, Rashida Jones looks AMAHZING and this BTS shot features all of the Johnson siblings thus far, including Daveed Diggs' free spirit, Johan.

If you think your favorite television characters have fun in front of the camera, then you haven't seen your favorite actors' lives behind it! Instagram is for more than just duck-lipped selfies and food pics, it's also become a place for actors to offer an inside look into the controlled chaos that is making a television show and how badass it can be.
On Thursday, Jensen Ackles tweeted picture to commemorate a big moment! Supernatural, the show that struggled for years in the ratings, began production on its 250th episode the same day season 12 premiered. He writes, "Day 1 of episode 250. Here's to all those who helped make it happen. What a ride it has, and continues to be. Cheers... #spnfamily."

A lot can happen in a year. A television show can backslide from addictively fun and action-packed to shark-jumpingly unwatchable (I’m not naming names, but a certain superhero show totally missed the bullseye last season. Oh, and it was Arrow). The movie you’ve been dying to see since pre-production began can finally be released and blow your friggin’ mind (Captain America: Civil War)! And I, your faithful Small Screen Girl, can embark on a journey to start on her television and pop culture blog, write a ton of articles, watch even more hours of television and learn priceless lessons along the way.
September 13th marks the first anniversary of this website, and while roughly 12% of me is shocked that it’s still going strong and gaining followers, the remaining 88% is inherently proud of the work that I’ve done and the fun that I’ve had while doing it!
In the coming year, I want my little corner of the internet to get bigger and more inclusive! I want to write more episode recaps and movie reviews. I want to share more of my millions of opinions on pop culture minutia. And I’d love you guys to do the same! Pop over to the right of your screen and like and follow me on the different social media thingies and let me know what you think of the site! You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
So birthdays usually mean cake—and trust me there will be cake or at least donuts—but they also mean you get to make wishes. I'm a little greedy, so I grabbed as many birthday wishes as I could and I'm using them for the greater good of entertainment!
If you've come here even once, thank you so much for visiting and I hope you find something here that brings you back!
Here are some of my biggest wishes for the upcoming television season, movies and more!
With more quality television shows than ever before, it’s almost impossible for prestigious award shows, like the Emmys, to rightfully recognize the best of the best.
However, the 68th Annual Emmy Award nominations, announced last week by Anthony Anderson (black-ish) and Lauren Graham (Parenthood) last week, nearly did. It was a celebration of studio and racial diversity with HBO, streaming services like Netflix and Starz, as well as traditional cable and broadcast stations racking up nominations. FX’s The People V. O.J. Simpson scored 22 awards while Game of Thrones edged them out with 23.
There was no chance of #EmmysSoWhite with nearly a quarter of the nominees being non-white talent, and it genuinely is a fairer representation of television’s cornucopia of talent.
Here’s seven reasons why this year’s Emmy nominations are the best in years…
Since I think of everything in terms of television, I could help but wonder about my favorite television papas. I've watched everything from the original Lassie (for you youngins, it's an old TV show about a beautiful collie that rescues an accidental prone little boy) to Empire. Narrowing down a list of favorites is almost as hard as finding the perfect "Thank you for giving me life" present for my own stubborn father.
Here are my 7 Favorite TV Fathers...
The 47th NAACP Image Awards, which aired Friday night on TVOne, answered the Oscars exclusion with an awards show that was an inclusive celebration for musicians, actors and activists of color. Winners and nominees cheered each other on, cracked jokes while presenting and accepting their awards, and passionately and adorably lip-synched to John Legend’s performance.
It’s true that you don’t realize how much you love something until it’s gone. With most of m’shows on winter hiatus, I find myself wondering what my favorite characters are doing, and watching old reruns just to hear their voices. It’s a one-sided love affair, but I knew that going in. So now is the perfect time to share my favorite TV characters in no particular order...
