Taylor Swift may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but she’s okay with that. Her new single “Shake it Off” proves she is growing up and no longer caring what other people think about her. She directly targets haters in the song with lines like “I go on too many dates/But I can’t make him stay/At... Read more »

As fall makes its way to us, it brings with it a new season of television. With particularly bland lineups for NBC sans “Community” and CBS without “How I Met Your Mother,” the opportunity has presented itself for ABC to establish its comedy repertoire.
