Ian McKellen's 'Vicious' Premiering On PBS Tonight: VIDEO

Vicious_S1_Ep01_003.jpg__640x360_q85Vicious, a British ITV sitcom starring out gay actors Sirs Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi, is finally making its widespread US debut on PBS tonight. Originally entitled Vicious Old Queens, the show features the two knighted thespians as Freddie and Stuart, an older gay couple embroiled in a decades-long love/hate relationship.

A deviation from other contemporary programming aimed at LGBT audiences like Modern Family, Looking, or True Blood, Vicious is more or less a return to the traditional Brit-com formula, relying on cheeky innuendo and absurdly high-brow casting decisions. Vicious premieres on local PBS affiliates across the country tonight at 10:30 P.M. EST.

Sia Sings 'Chandelier' With NYC Gay Men's Chorus Wearing Sia Wigs: VIDEO

NYCGMC in Sia wigs

Last Thursday's Trailblazers on Logo featured a special performance of "Chandelier" by Sia and the NYC Gay Men's Chorus.

As she has been in all her recent performances, Sia sang on a platform off to the side of the audience and faced away from the camera. NYCGMC took front-and-center, and they did so in yellow robes and in blonde Sia wigs...even on the mustachioed shirtless dancer who sahsayed from one side of the stage to the other with his routine.

It was really quite the performance, and you can watch it AFTER THE JUMP...

Baby Daddy's Derek Theler 'Embarrassed' About His Physique


As far as humble-brags go, this one takes the flour-less cake. Derek Theler, the comedic relief on ABC Family's ‘Baby Daddy’ and object of lust for those with eyes, confessed to Men’s Fitness that, though he is no stranger to shirtlessness, be it on TV or IG, he is a bit embarrassed by how often he shows off his Greek physique:

Part of your success on Baby Daddy may have to do with your physique…

That is absolutely what I’m known for, and I think it’s in my contract that I have to have my shirt off every other episode. It’s funny because I actually am kind of embarrassed about it, but when I do come out of the bathroom wearing a towel for no reason (laughs) I try not to put it out there, but I work hard on looking as good as I can, and I’m young, so it’s something I guess I should be proud of.

What To Watch This Week on TV: '90s Nostalgia and Teenage Werewolves- VIDEO

Screen Shot 2013-04-29 at 5.11.54 PM

Check out our weekly guide to make sure you're catching the big premieres, crucial episodes and the stuff you won't admit you watch when no one's looking.

— While that other show with the beefy werewolves has been a roller-coaster of quality, Teen Wolf just seems to get better and better. The supernatural thriller can get just as scary, but the high school angst keeps the series from ever taking itself too seriously (or falling too far down a nonsensical faerie hole). The fourth season premiere hits MTV tonight at 10 p.m. Eastern.

'True Blood' RECAP - 'Jesus Gonna Be Here' [Spoilers]



Welcome back, True Blood! The seventh and final season of HBO's off-the-rails vampire horror soap opera featured a town under siege and at least one character death that's sure to bring a smile to the face of many viewers.

We can all agree that sometimes this show is a total pile of garbage, but tonight's premiere showed some promise. It's definitely not the taut thriller it was in its first season, but, so far, the show's chaos feels contained to the Hep V spread we saw introduced last season. Let's hope it can maintain its focus. Regardless, we'll be chronicling the good, the bad and the utterly ridiculous all season with our weekly recaps.

Get up to speed on what went down this week, and share your thoughts on the premiere, AFTER THE JUMP ...
