What if The Simpsons, but darker? Well, it exists. The folks at Dark Simpsons mix and match Simpsons screencaps to create magically dark and disturbing scenarios that are pretty far from the show itself. The storylines are impressively cohesive, and a great deal more demented than canon. You can keep up to date with the meme-y comics here.

Attention Netflix subscribers: Now that you've already binged away your life on "House of Cards" and "Orange is the New Black," there's some good news.
A new show is in the works!
Netflix has bought the rights to produce an original TV series based on the dark children's books, "A Series of Unfortunate Events."
And here's what Lemony Snicket (i.e. author Daniel Handler) himself has to say about it:
"I can't believe it," Mr. Snicket said, from an undisclosed location. "After years of providing top-quality entertainment on demand, Netflix is risking its reputation and its success by associating itself with my dismaying and upsetting books."
A film version based on the first book starring Jim Carrey was released back in 2004.
NBC dangled the carrot of hope and disappointment during last week's upfronts when they finally revealed that fan-favorite Community would return for an abbreviated fourth season. Today, it's been revealed that showrunner and antagonist, Dan Harmon, was fired from his show and, unsurprisingly, had some words about it. To wit:
Why'd Sony want me gone? I can't answer that because I've been in as much contact with them as you have. They literally haven't called me since the season four pickup, so their reasons for replacing me are clearly none of my business. Community is their property, I only own ten percent of it, and I kind of don't want to hear what their complaints are because I'm sure it would hurt my feelings even more now that I'd be listening for free.
It's been reported that Harmon will still bear a "consulting producer" title, but with other staffing changes, it's unclear if the show will even be the same program that the internet has taken so many screencaps of.
If you remember MTV during its late 90s/early 00s heyday of awesome shows like Clone High and Undressed, then you might remember their stab at lampooning the boy band craze with their sitcom, 2gether. The remaining living members of the show are reuniting for a Q&A and performance at the Jon Lovitz Comedy Club, which begs the question, Jon Lovitz has a comedy club?
