Didja catch the "Unauthorized Full House Story" film on Lifetime Saturday night?
Reviewers as well as original cast members slammed the movie, with CANDACE CAMERON BURE topping the list of haters, tweeting simply: "So bad. Just so bad."
Ratings for the made-for-TV movie will be out later today, but Variety notes even "Full House" and "Fuller House" creator JEFF FRANKLIN tweeted, "About that Lifetime movie. Not so good. And for the record, I never had a fight with Bob Saget. But at least they spelled our names right!"
Former "Daily Show" host JON STEWART was the hosts of the four-hour-long event, held at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. As for the matches:
--SHEAMUS beat RANDY ORTON, nailing Randy with two consecutive Brogue Kicks.
--In the Fatal Fourway Tag Match, it was the Prime Time Players vs. Los Matadores VS. Lucha Dragons vs. The New Day, and The New Day won, becoming the new WWE Tag Team Champions.
--STEPHEN AMELL (yes, the guy who plays "Arrow" on TV) and NEVILLE vs. STARDUST and KING BARRETT: Stephen Amell and Neville won.
--JOHN CENA vs. SETH ROLLINS: Seth Rollins won with a little help from... Jon Stewart! In the middle of the match! While the official was out of commission, Jon ran into the ring with a steel chair and hit Cena in the gut with the chair and threw it onto the mat, setting up Rollins to deliver a pedigree to Cena and his surgically repaired nose on the chair. So Seth is now the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
Sharing childcare makes for happier couples with better sex lives. New research out of Georgia State University has found that parents who split childcare duties evenly felt greater "satisfaction," both sexually and emotionally. But in couples where the woman did most of the childcare, both men and women reported feeling less content. The BBC says that in couples where the women performed more than 60 percent of childcare --specifically in terms of rule-making, praising and playing, both people in the relationship-- fared the worst on scores of relationship satisfaction and conflict, as well as being less happy about the quality of their sex life.
The research also found that fathers could take on most or all of the childcare responsibilities without negatively affecting the quality of the couple's relationship. (Bartha)
And people were ticked about "swimming with dolphins!" The Wild County Zoo in Dade County, Florida, has a "Swim with a Tiger" program. People can pay $200 bucks to swim with tiger cubs. The zoo also offers people a chance to pose for pictures with them and put paint on their paws for paw print paintings. The U.S. Department of Agriculture is coming down hard on them, knowing that anything can happen with a tiger. Especially a wet cat! PETA is pressuring the USDA to intervene and stop the program.
