I Went to Kylie Jenner’s NYC Pop-Up Shop and Saw Everything, from the Three-Day Lines to King Kylie’s Belated (but Bonkers) Arrival!
When Kylie Jenner announced she would be opening her second limited pop-up shop in New York City, I knew I had to check it out. And when someone from the PeopleStyle team needed to cover the grand opening, I was the first to volunteer myself as tribute.

The pop-up shop, which is located at 27 Mercer Street in Soho, officially opened its doors to King Kylie’s loyal fans — some of whom traveled from as far as Las Vegas to see her and shop her makeup and clothing lines in person (not to mention get a coveted Instagram photo of the

As Told By Ginger: Reboot Not Happening After All

Ginger ain't talking, at least not yet. A revival of the cancelled As Told by Ginger TV series is not currently in the works at Nickelodeon, even though it arguably should be. The show was noted for its continuity, character development, and wardrobe changes not common to animation.

The original As Told by Ginger cartoon ran for three seasons. A Nickelodeon source tells Fuse: "As much as we love As Told By Ginger, there are no immediate plans for a reboot at this time. There is no validity to the MoviePilot story."

As Told by Ginger: Nickelodeon Series Revival Rumored

Ginger should tell us, herself. MoviePilot.com reported that Nickelodeon is reviving the animated As Told by Ginger TV series. The story claimed to have been an exclusive with Russell Hicks, Nickelodeon Group President for Content Development and Production, and Chris Viscardi, Senior Vice President, Content Development at Nickelodeon Franchise Properties.

Update: We are sorry to report that, per Nick, there is no validity to this rumor.

Although widely circulated and seemingly legitimate, MoviePilot.com has taken down the original piece. It quotes Hicks as saying, "Kids who grew up on these characters are now of the age that they are having kids and families themselves.” Reportedly, series creator Emily Kapnek is on board as Ep. It is possible MoviePilot.com published, ahead of the getting the green light from Nick. It is also possible it is a hoax.

‘Doctor Who’s Karen Gillan Joins ABC Comedy Pilot ‘Selfie’

Despite Suburgatory‘s third season not doing very well, or perhaps in spite of it, ABC greenlit a new comedy pilot from Suburgatory creator Emily Kapnek about a month ago. With the pickup, Selfie, along with Damaged Goods from Awkward creator Lauren Iungerich, joined the network’s list of 11 comedy pilots awaiting a series order in May.

Now the next step is finally in place, as Kapnek’s thing for redheads (see Suburgatory’s Jane Levy and the animated series As Told by Ginger) has reared its head yet again. Karen Gillan – who last graced our TV screens on Adult Swim’s Ntsf:sd:suv and as Doctor Who‘s companion Amy Pond – has signed on to star as the female ...

Kate Nash's favourite TV

The singer-songwriter on the shows that are great and those that grate

Unmissable show?

The Walking Dead is my show. I download it from iTunes so that I can watch it the second it comes out. It's a show that I've got really involved in, emotionally.

Bring back…

As Told By Ginger. It was a cartoon about a ginger girl with braces, which was probably why I related to it. She was a cool, nerdy girl. It was one of those smart cartoons. Sabrina The Teenage Witch – that was one of my faves as well.

First telly memory?

I remember this really weird TV show. It was this trippy-as-fuck owl teaching you the alphabet or something. I've spent years trying to figure out what that show was… [We think that Kate might be referring to kids' TV series Look And Read]. There were so many weird shows when we were younger. Clangers. Button Moon. The Moomins. All very weird, but very cool too.

'Suburgatory' review: Angsty, smart and off to a good start

On Wednesday (Sept. 28), "Suburgatory" joins ABC's family-focused line-up as a sort of bridge between "The Middle" and "Modern Family," but where the established shows are straight-forward comedic takes on family life, "Suburgatory" takes a different tack: It delivers laughs, for sure, but with a brainy, subversive and sometimes absurdist edge.

Jeremy Sisto ("Law & Order") stars as George Altman, an architect who gets spooked when he finds a box of condoms in teenaged daughter Tessa's (Jane Levy) room and uproots her to live in a generic suburb.

Tessa is a Juno-like home-skillet (apologies to folks who haven't seen "Juno") who -- though she doesn't have Diablo Cody writing for her -- does have Emmy-nominated writer Emily Kapnek ("Hung," "Parks and Recreation," "As Told By Ginger") to deliver sharp dialogue and give the show a forward motion that keeps us interested in these people and their somewhat inane existence. And, having grown up in suburbia ourselves,

'SpongeBob' gets Season 9, blows all previous Nickelodeon cartoons out of the water

If you've moved on from adolescence at any point in the last 11 years and don't have any children of your own, it may surprise you to know that Nickelodeon's "SpongeBob, SquarePants" is still on the air.

After debuting back in 1999, the cartoon about a naive, possibly gay sea creature remains the network's highest rated animated series. And Deadline reports that its just been given the green light on a ninth season.

This next batch of 26 episodes, set to debut sometime in 2012, will push the series over the 200-episode mark. It's quite a feat on its own, but when you look at how long other iconic "Nicktoons" lasted, its even more impressive.

Here's how "SpongeBob" stacks up:

1. "SpongeBob, SquarePants" (1999 - present)

When it completes Season 9, the "SpongeBob" episode count will stand at 204 -- and that doesn't even include the movies or specials.

2. "Rugrats" (1991-2004)

 Nickelodeon's longest-running cartoon (at least in age
