    Hasan Minhaj, of MTV’s ‘Failosophy,’ on social media, Ashton Kutcher, selective racism (Interview)

    In Hasan Minhaj, the producers of MTV’s Failosophy have secured a host with quite possibly the most apt-fitting credentials imaginable for the task at hand. Boasting a storied background in a comedy brand that orients itself around piecemeal mockery of all things social media and Internet user misfortune, Minhaj has quickly become identified as a capable comedian with an innate understanding of what makes user-generated content just so damn funny.

Running from 2002 through 2005, The Osbournes gave us the chance to learn a lot about Ozzy Osbourne, namely that he’s lovable even though he’s full of pills and can barely speak.

    Essay: Comedian Theo Von meets MTV’s Rob Dyrdek and it’s intense

    I haven’t watched Rob Dyrdek on TV in years. My time for tele-viewing consists solely of NFL football, Dexter, and Criminal Minds DVR’d. (If I could have Shamar Moore and Lt. Deborah Morgan on my Fantasy squad, life would be complete.) So, I didn’t recognize his Rob-ness when I approached the only person on a Sunset Blvd. studio patio last week, to buy a cigarette. That’s right, I said ‘buy.’
