Originally posted 09/15/2014 10:05PM

Since May, this season's crop of MasterChef hopefuls have been thrown a lot of curveballs.

On Monday night, a new winner of the hit Fox reality competition rose up from the sweat and tears in the kitchen: Courtney Lapresi, 25.

Luckily, there are plenty of other networks eager to help drown out the sound of millions of sports fans screaming at their television sets.

Here is a complete playbook for what to watch when you don't want to watch football:

Downton Abbey Recap: 7 Simple Truths About That Silly, Shocking House Party

Originally posted 01/13/2014 11:45AM

While you were watching the Golden Globes, Downton Abbey was having a house party – a regal, riotous, weekend-long marathon of poker games, opera performances, formal dinners, and shocking revelations sure to reshape the remainder of the season.

Seven key takeaways from last night's gala event (warning, spoilers ahead):

1. Sullen Lady Mary Has a New Suitor. When an old family friend, Lord Gillingham (Tom Cullen), attends the party, the sullen Lady Mary finds herself possibly, maybe having a tiny bit of fun. On a horse ride, the two bond over the burdens of death and taxes. While Gillingham is technically engaged to a woman chosen for him by his parents, he seems rather smitten with Mary, even after she runs away in tears after realizing she was dancing to music played on a gramophone that belonged to her beloved Matthew.

Fancasting a Morning News Rivalry: The Today Show vs. Good Morning America

Originally posted 01/02/2014 07:00AM

Morning news is about to become more dramatic than you ever imagined – and you'll get to watch it all unfold in a new made-for-TV movie.

Lifetime is adapting former New York Times media reporter Brian Stelter’s book, Top of the Morning: Inside the Cutthroat World of Morning TV, into a television movie.

The book chronicles the fierce rivalry between two flagship morning news programs: ABC's Good Morning America and NBC's Today. The story focuses on the intrigue surrounding the 2012 ouster of former Today anchor Ann Curry, who left the show when the NBC stalwart began to lose the ratings race to GMA.

With development underway, we can't help but imagine who will play Matt Lauer – let alone Kathie Lee Gifford, Sam Champion or Al Roker. Check out our humble suggestions, starting with the Today show team:

11 Life Lessons Learned From the Bonnie & Clyde Miniseries

Originally posted 12/10/2013 04:45PM

In part two of A&E/Lifetime/History's mini-series, Bonnie and Clyde – played by Holliday Grainger and Emile Hirsch – have lost all sense of abiding the law. They are no longer simple bank robbers; now they are packing heat and unafraid to use it. The only thing standing between Bonnie, Clyde, and all that money is William Hurt as the dogged lawman who comes out of retirement to capture 'em.

We watched every bloody moment of Bonnie & Clyde's finale to glean lessons from this classic tale of love, crime and scrapbooking.
