Lena Dunham and Allison Williams spent a little time with Juan Pablo.

Speaking of Juan Pablo, he was near impossible to watch during last night's two-hour premiere of The Bachelor.  His squeaky mouse-like reactions to the women were like fingernails on a chalkboard and I find next to nothing likable about him (sorry).  Casting gets another A+ insofar as the female suitors are concerned, but it remains unfathomable that women continue to put themselves through the processes of this show considering how very few of them have found fame as a result.

Wayne Brady is dating Chilli from TLC?  And this is the 2nd time the 2 of them have been a couple?  He's straight?  UPDATE: Chilli has refuted the report and claims that the two are not an item.

If you're not familiar with comedian Tig Notaro (No-tar-oh), check this out:

"Welcome to the EW original show Up Close with Tig Notaro! In the first episode of this nine-episode series, Notaro, who is up for a Grammy this month for her comedy album, Live, spends an afternoon getting personal with Community star Gillian Jacobs.

The ladies spend a few minutes just Tiggin’ it up and discussing hot topics including toothpaste brands, abusive siblings, and the last cizzies they vizzited. Check it out below and come back Wednesday for another episode with Jacobs. Future installments will include chats with Jack Black and Sarah Chalke."

Jerry Seinfeld participated in a Reddit chat yesterday.  You're welcome.

Here's a preview of the next episode of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee.

SNL has announced its new black female cast member: Sasheer Zamata.  I don't recognize her either.

Per EW, "[h]ere’s an example of why Brooklyn Nine-Nine earned that Golden Globe nomination: The Fox comedy is back Tuesday with The Office‘s Craig Robinson guest starring as Doug Judy, one of Rosa’s perps who has information about the 'Pontiac Bandit,' a car thief that Jake (Andy Samberg) has been tracking for years. Doug also has a laserdisc collection that leads to an excellent moment for fans of An American Tail: Fievel Goes West."

Stassi Schroeder (Vanderpump Rules) loves her birthday more than any person on the planet. During last night's episode, she pointed out that it was her 25th birthday no short of 85x.  I'd love to see this show get back on track as it's slipping off the rails very quickly.

 Stassi in Cabo celebrating #25.  It's her birthday you know.

"Starting Sunday, Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey will join forces on the small screen in the highly anticipated new HBO series True Detective. The eight-episode show is pure gritty drama, a twisty tale about two mismatched cops — a family man with some hidden secrets (Harrelson) and a darkly pessimistic loner (McConaughey) — who are pursuing a mysterious serial killer in the Louisiana backwoods. But despite the grim subject matter, when EW interviewed McConaughey and Harrelson together for our Winter TV Preview issue (on stands now), the two — who’ve been friends for nearly 20 years — were all laughs, to the point that we had to ask: Why haven’t you guys ever made a buddy comedy together?"  Click here to read the entire interview.

Per Deadline, "Rory O’Malley, member of the original Broadway cast of The Book of Mormon, is set to co-star opposite Kelsey Grammerand Martin Lawrence in Braddock & Jackson, FX/Lionsgate’s 10-episode comedy series starring Grammer and Lawrence as Chicago lawyers from vastly different backgrounds who develop a partnership after they unexpectedly meet in court on the worst day of their lives."
