People behind the scenes just don't get recognition. That's especially true in the world of television. You know the names of your favorite TV stars, but probably never think about the producers who slave away while the stars are relaxing on beaches and dodging photographers from COED. Now you can check out the people who've created and produced some of TV's biggest hits. Give them credit or blame, after checking out what we're blaming them for...
I know the majority of Simpsons “fans” don’t watch The Simpsons anymore, but the a cappella cover o…
July 21st is National Junk Food Day, which should be pretty self-explanatory. Just last week, news broke that Frito-Lay would put Cheesy Poofs into production, with plans to manufacture 1.5 million 2 3⁄8 ounce bags sold at the somewhat ridiculous price of $2.99 each. To honor these 2 momentous occasions we decided to take a look at some other fictional foods we hope make it to the marketplace (at a lower cost) in real life. Is this real life? We hope not. Check it out and let us know if we missed any in the comments after the jump.
Last week's episode of South Park celebrated Stan's 10th birthday, which is a rarity for cartoon shows. Most refuse to acknowledge their characters' ages. SP's been on since '97 so if Stan were 8 in that year, he'd be around 22 now. The producers of the Harry Potter franchise frantically try to wrap up the series before everyone got boobs and balls. Two and a Half Men will soon Be Three Men (which sounds creepy without "and a Baby" after it). Even though cartoon characters never appear to age, let's take a look at how old they WOULD be if they did after the jump.
Whenever I'm high, I want three things: funny sh*t, food, and more weed. In this post, we address the first of my desires - shows that are guaranteed to make me laugh my @ss off. Sure, the development of On Demand television makes it easier for me to find what I want, but sometimes I forget what I'm doing. For the sake of potheads everywhere, I propose a channel that plays only what we want to watch through the clouds of smoke: Channel 420. Check out our nominees and vote for the shows you think should make it onto our channel after the jump.
Twenty-four years ago today, a crudely drawn animated sitcom about a dysfunctional family with yellow skin made its debut appearance on the Tracey Ullman Show and took an unsuspecting nation by storm - appearing on t-shirts, fanny packs and other junk around the globe! Because of this momentous occasion, we couldn't help but think about the humble - and low-budget - beginnings of some of our other favorite animated sitcoms. Take an awkward trip down memory lane with COED's list of rarely seen cartoon sitcom pilots after the jump!

There's a damn good reason why no one at Fox Broadcasting has ever given the thumbs up to a live action version of The Simpsons that stayed true to the anatomy of the characters- it's scientifically impossible and the amount of nightmares such a thing would deliver is inconceivable... but a Mexican sketch-comedy program has defied nature and opened up a Pandora's Box upon an unsuspecting audience. This is what happens when you accidentally hit "SAP" on your television remote while watching The Simpsons on LSD! I don't know what's more frightening: the doll-like, lifeless stare of their buggy eyes or seeing a man painted yellow dressed as Marge struggling to walk in a dress. Watch this video monstrosity for yourself and pray something like this never happens to Futurama!
Well, folks, it looks like Drunk Christmas is almost upon us - and by that we mean St. Patrick's Day! With the smell of finely brewed ale, vomit and dead leprechaun soon to fill the air, we at COED got to thinking about TV characters that drove us to drink in the first place; the figures we'd most like to knock back a few brewskis with. Whether they're animated or not, these lads and lasses could probably drink us under the table any day of the week and we wouldn't mind in the least!
Geeks and nerds are a somewhat skittish lot that tend to stay away from places replete with loud noises, rowdiness and general human contact. That's not to say the most famous worlds and universes of geekdom deprive themselves of a watering hole to unwind and drink their troubles away. Get ready to travel to galaxies far, far away to some of the greatest bars many of our favorite characters call their home away from home!
It's hard to imagine a time when the television airwaves weren't filled with mind-numbing, superficial reality TV shows. However, there was a time when the boob tube wasn't so bad. Over the past 50+ years we've been able to watch pioneering programs that have deeply affected American culture and the media industry as a whole. Who knows where'd we be without their inflluences? Some say we're worse off because of the envelope it pushed while others praise them for revolutionizing the way we think and behave. Take a look and let us know what you think. See our picks after the jump!

There was once a time when animated sitcoms were all the rage in the wake of shows like The Simpsons and King of the Hill. It seemed like every network threw their hat into the ring at some point. However, many of these shows were either mega ratings bombs or were canned for not pulling in Simpsons-esque numbers. As a result, these series were canceled after their first season, several before their entire run had finished. These are a few of the unlucky ones that never found their place on network television, though most of them enjoy relatively decent success on cable and DVD. See our top 8 picks after the jump!
For years, the little yellow family from Springfield brought us an abundance of laughter... and sometimes chills. The award-winning Treehouse of Horror series has run the table of classic spooky tales and futuristic frights. Here are the 6 best episodes from the past 20 years:
Television comedies are experiencing a grand resurgence. With such hit comedies as The Big Bang Theory, Glee, Modern Family, How I Met Your Mother, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Two and a Half Men, 30 Rock, and The Office, the viewing schedule is not lacking the funny these days. Maybe one day these awesome shows will join our list of the funniest TV shows ever, but for now, we'll stick to the classics. What hilarious comedies are you loving?
When it comes to staying on the television airwaves, nobody does it better than The Simpsons. The show started out in 1987 as an animated short on The Tracey Ullman Show and 457 episodes and 21 seasons later, The Simpsons has become America's longest running sitcom. Over the past two decades, The Simpsons have influenced all of our lives in some way -- including the fact that we all use d'oh as part of our daily vocabulary.
What's your favorite TV show of all time? Better yet, how about what's your best catch phrases of all time? You may watch some of your favorite shows just to hear the main character say something that they regularly say during the show. For example, Fred Sanford saying, "You big dummy," to Lamont Sanford in the TV show, "Sanford and Son." Maybe you're a kind of person who loves to hear Bart Simpson say, "Eat my shorts." Nevertheless, lets take a look at 10 of the some of the best and worst catch phrases etched in your head.
