We feel like a broken record, but here it is: Saturday Night Live has yet again taken aim at Latinos, without, you know, actually having a Latino on cast. Really cool. In the newest sketch, Kenan Thompson plays Red Sox baseball player David Ortiz, honing in on his thick accent and his Dominican background. The entire sketch is centered around Ortiz's love for Dominican food. Because what else is a Latino but a lover of tostones with a thick accent?
Already on its sixth season, RuPaul’s Drag Race has become a vehicle for some of the fiercest drag queens all over the world looking to become bone fide superstars.

American Idol got its groove back!
Wednesday night, the top eight competitors from season 13 took to the stage to perform the songs they sang in their initial auditions. This was good news for the contestants and the audience, because the singers already knew these songs backwards and forwards.

When Veronica Mars was canceled in 2007, faithful fans demanded a movie... and seven years later, they got one. Unfortunately, many amazing TV shows have failed to garner the ratings or raise the money necessary to keep them from the chopping block.
