beyonce super bowl halftime video

Who runs the world? Beyoncé, of course.

The “Single Ladies” singer promised in a press conference leading up to her performance at the Super Bowl XLVII Halftime Show (AKA “The Beyonce Bootylicious Mini-Concert, Brought to You by Some Football Game”) that she was “well-rehearsed” and would “absolutely” be singing live. Not only did she …READ MORE

Olympics Watch: What Was Your Favorite Moment From London 2012, Day 15?

david boudia

If I’m being completely honest, I entered Day 15 of NBC’s primetime Olympics coverage feeling a little burned out on the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. Who’dve thunk, then, that I’d get my most satisfying post-event cry at the end of …READ MORE

China's Chen Ruolin competes in the wome

Did you know that on Facebook, the U.S. women’s soccer team has almost 200 times more “likes” than its Japanese counterpart? That historically significant tidbit came straight from Ryan Seacrest’s mouth during his social-media report during Day 13 of the 2012 Olympics in London. [Insert eye-roll here.]

Seacrest’s pink-slime filler wouldn’t be so grody if …READ MORE


Olympics Watch: What Was Your Favorite Moment From London 2012, Day 11?

TVLine’s Olympics Watch coverage has focused a lot on swimmers, gymnasts and runners. And so while it’s tempting to name Aly Raisman’s Gold medal performance in the women’s gymnastics floor exercises as the highlight of my Day 11 viewing experience — who says human beings don’t have springs in their feet? — I’m going to zag where I’d usually zig and give props to …READ MORE

Another night of Olympic coverage, another event essentially spoiled by the tone-deaf folks at NBC. Indeed, Bob Costas’ primetime broadcast intro paid no mind to old-fashioned types like myself who …READ MORE

I can barely make it from the couch to the refrigerator in under 30 seconds — even when I’m super peckish — which made the finals of the Men’s 100 meter Sprint at the 2012 Summer Olympics all the more mind-boggling. READ MORE

NBC may not win a Gold medal for its all-around Olympic coverage, but it definitely had fewer stumbles in bringing us the women’s all-around gymnastics competition on Thursday than it did with the men’s equivalent on Wednesday.

For starters, we got to see plenty of …REAL MORE


Olympics Watch: What Was Your Favorite Moment from London 2012, Day 5?

I’ve come to realize over the last few days that I’m really partial to Olympic swimming events. Nobody purposely tries to throw a race to avoid tougher matchups down the pike (see badminton). There are no pesky judges to witness a thing of perfection — like McKayla Maroney’s flawless vault — then score it like there were hidden glitches only they could see. And swimming is straightforward: …READ MORE

Is it possible the 2012 Olympics might’ve peaked on Day 4? There was Allison Schmitt’s Olympic record-setting Gold-medal performance in the 200 freestyle. There was the triumph of the U.S. “Fab 5″ — oh those vaults! and oh the injustice of McKayla Maroney’s imperfect vault score! — in the Women’s Gymnastics Team Final. But for me, the most thrilling part of NBC’s primetime coverage had to be …READ MORE
