Another day, another list for Philly to grace its presence on.

This time we came in at No. 9 for kinkiest U.S. cities. Nope, this is not a joke. Kink University (also, not a joke) did their homework on this subject. 

In what they are calling “The 2015 Kink University State of the Union,” 50 major U.S. cities (populations over 500,000) were evaluated by very specific criteria:

Abbi Jacobson on "Broad City" (Comedy Central)

On Monday night, the ladies from Comedy Central’s Broad City, Wayne native Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to reveal that nudity and singing would play an important role in the latest episode of their hit show. That episode, “Mochalatta Chills,” premiered last night, and, perhaps not surprisingly, it’s hilarious.

Revolving primarily around the time-honored tradition of sneaking into movie theaters for free, the latest episode of Broad City’s second season begins with Jacobson’s roommate’s boyfriend, Bevers, heading out to the gym after our hero discovers a festering “couch sore” on him. Which, of course, gives Jacobson some rare time alone.

Naturally, she decides to run around the apartment naked, singing along to Lady Gaga’s “The Edge of Glory.” The scene goes on for an almost painfully long amount of time, with the anticipation building of Jacobson being caught.

Back in November, news hit that Tina Fey’s upcoming sitcom, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, would make its premiere on Netflix after NBC sold the rights and pulled a mid-season premiere. Now, we’re getting a peek at the series with the release of its very first trailer. 

Created by Upper Darby native Tina Fey and 30 Rock’s Robert Carlock, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt revolves around the journey of a woman named Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) who leaves a doomsday cult after living as a member for 15 years. Our heroine moves to New York City, finds a job with Jane Krakowski’s character and a roommate in Tituss Burgess, and starts her life over again — presumably with hilarity ensuing all along the way. 

The series will make its Netflix premiere on March 6, with all 13 episodes of the first season going up at once. And, what’s more, Netflix has already guaranteed a second season, so don’t worry too much about blowing through those first episodes too quickly.

West Philly native Ahmir Khalib Thompson, better known as Questlove, celebrated his 44th birthday on Tuesday, marking the occasion by getting drunk for the very first time in his life.

TMZ caught up with the Roots drummer on Wednesday to check in about his b-day festivities, with Questo responding almost instantaneously that he had his “first hangover this morning” after “one too many rum shots.” Which, of course, is surprising, given that Questlove says he’s “not a real drinker” who is “on the shallow end” of things. 


Day is getting crazier! Wow!!!!!! Thank you #FallonTonight family! pb @RealCapnCrunch fo life!!!

That’s right, not a couple or a few, but seven boxes of Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch. It’s even the kind that won’t cut the roof of your mouth after a long night of accidentally drinking too much rum. 

“That was the best gift I’ve ever gotten,” Questlove said of his crunchatized b-day gift. 

As it turns out, the drummer’s want for that huge an amount of Cap'n Crunch was inspired by Will Smith’s apparent “ghetto dream” of having permanently clean socks and underwear.

“I don’t want clean socks and drawers everyday,” he told TMZ. “But I figured I’d want a lifetime supply of Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch.” 

Well, Questo, it looks like you got your wish. Just take it easy on those rum shots for 45.

After looking at the angelic photo of 7-month-old baby Grace, it’s not hard to see why the Lancaster County baby has won the fifth annual Gerber Be Our Baby Photo Search 2014.

To score the $50,000 Gerber baby prize along with a year of Gerber baby food and the chance to appear in a Gerber advertisement, Grace had to out-cute 180,000 other infants, no doubt a difficult task.

“We are still in shock,” Grace’s mother Gabrielle told The Patriot-News. “She posed perfectly.”

Malcolm-Jamal Warner, best known for his role as Theo Huxtable on the Cosby Show, has addressed the sexual assault allegations facing his former TV dad, Bill Cosby, saying that it’s “painful to watch my friend and mentor go through this.” 

Warner spoke exclusively with Billboard to discuss the allegations facing his former co-star, with the story initially focusing on his very first Grammy nomination last year. Ultimately, he calls Cosby a “mentor” and says that the embattled comedian “has been great to me and great for a lot of people.”

If you’ve ever watched Bob’s Burgers and thought, "Man, I wish all this animation wasn’t here to distract me from enjoying the show,” then your prayers have officially been answered. The cast of the hit Fox show will soon bring their meaty antics to Philly for a stop on their upcoming Bob’s Burgers Live! tour.

Kicking off in mid-March in Minneapolis, the tour will wind its way through the Midwest and East Coast, eventually ending up at the Tower Theater in Upper Darby on March 26. So far, Philly is one of eight confirmed stops on the tour.

Expect to see the whole Belcher family in Upper Darby — or, well, at least the voice actors who play them. Cast members taking part in the tour include H. Jon Benjamin (Bob), Kristen Schaal (Louise), Eugene Mirman (Gene), Dan Mintz (Tina), and John Roberts (Linda), along with series creator Loren Bouchard.

Host Larry Wilmore returned to Comedy Central last night for the second episode of The Nightly Show, this time focusing on the sexual assault allegations facing embattled comedian Bill Cosby. 

“We’re answering the question, ‘Did he do it?’” Wilmore said to start the show. “The answer will be, ‘Yes.’ ” 

Wilmore did not let up from there, calling the allegations against Cosby a “hurricane of horror” and skewering everything from Cosby’s “far from finished” comments to the disbelief his accusers have faced since they began speaking out rapidly in November of last year.
