Surprise! Netflix suddenly cancels 'The Break with Michelle Wolf'

5 hours 7 min ago

Netflix isn't known for being quick to cancel or even do much quality control with its glut of original content.

Reportedly The Joel McHale Show is being cancelled, too, after only a 19-episode run that started back in FebruaryThe Break only aired 10 episodes total.

The reasoning behind the premature cancellation of Wolf's show remains unclear.  Read more...

Crazybaby Air 1S review: Good sound in a questionable design

The #DeleAlliChallenge has people attempting to make an unusual hand gesture

Fri, 08/17/2018 - 19:28

The #InMyFeelings challenge is going to have to take a seat for just a second.

The next internet craze is upon us: People are trying, and mostly failing, to copy a pose Tottenham Hotspur player Dele Alli did after he scored a goal against Newcastle this week. Whether it was planned or not, this was the first sighting of this now iconic hand gesture.

What Alli does with his hands looks simple enough — but it turns out making an "ok" sign with your thumb and forefinger, turning it upside-down, and then letting it rest around your eye is actually harder than it seems.

Fri, 08/17/2018 - 18:43

If there's one thing that unites the human race, it's the strange desire to consume things we definitely shouldn't.

I'll never forgive the Oscars for snubbing 'Good Time'

Fri, 08/17/2018 - 17:37
