  • Holly's first day at work.

    Posted on 02/09/2010 by Lisa

    In the "Holly's First Job" episode of What I Like About You, Holly's first day as a waitress doesn't go well (as she puts it "I got there, I sucked, I quit").

    My first job was as a cashier at a craft supply store, and I sucked, too. I got stressed out anytime anybody wanted to pay with a credit card, because I thought the little charge machine was too hard to use. Good thing I'm better with computers now, huh?

    What was your first job? Did you suck at it?

    If you could go back in time and give yourself advice, what would you say? (I would say, "Hey, Lisa -- learn to knit while you've got a discount on yarn!")

  • Holly can't handle the truth.

    Posted on 01/13/2010 by Mary

    When Holly on What I Like About You found out that Henry wasn't a virgin, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say she didn't handle it the super classiest.

    If you start dating someone, how much do you care about the nitty gritty details of their dating history? Is it better to know or is ignorance bliss? And what kind of info do you want -- just like, which bases they've been to or whose bases they've been to?

  • What I Like About You: The Finale

    Posted on 12/31/2009 by Lisa

    What I Like About YouIf you've never seen the finale of What I Like About You, it's on tonight at 11:30. We're airing the last four episodes, all in a row, starting at 10 pm. (If you've got other New Year's Eve plans, just hit the record button before you go out.)

    I was sad when What I Like About You stopped making new episodes, because I'd happily watch Amanda Bynes on a sitcom every day forever, but I do like how it all wrapped up.

    What did you think of the What I Like About You finale? Were you happy with how the show ended?

    p.s. If you're a fan, don't panic -- This isn't the last time we'll be showing What I Like About You on TeenNick.

  • Tina's got a secret... but not for long.

    Posted on 12/28/2009 by Lisa

    "You're my boyfriend. We don't keep secrets from each other."That's something Holly says in the "I've Got a Secret" episode of What I Like About You, and it brings up an important relationship question -- are boyfriends and girlfriends exempt from the secret-keeping rules?

    When Tina realizes she might possibly have feelings for Gary, she tells Holly, but begs her to keep it a secret.

    A few minutes later, this conversation takes place:

    HOLLY: "Tina told me not to tell anyone."
    VINCE: "But you just told me."
    HOLLY: "Yeah, but you're not 'anyone' -- you're my boyfriend. We don't keep secrets from each other, because we have that intimate bond."

    If you were in that situation, and you were sworn to secrecy about a friend's crush, would you keep it a secret? Or would you tell your bf/gf, because of the "intimate bond" thing?

  • Ever "Gone Under" like Henry?

    Posted on 12/15/2009 by Mary

    One of the What I Like About You eps tonight is the one where Henry gets his wisdom teeth out and freaks on Holly for not being there when he wakes up from the anesthesia as promised.

    Dude, anesthesia is so weird... have you ever been under it for surgery? What was it like, and how freaked out were you about the whole ordeal?

  • Guest Star Watch: Penn Badgley and Jenna Fischer

    Posted on 12/09/2009 by Lisa

    Penn Badgley and Jenna FischerWay back before he starred in Gossip Girl and John Tucker Must Die, Penn Badgley guest-starred in an episode of What I Like About You. He played Holly's coworker at Copy That.

    And way back before she played Pam on The Office, Jenna Fischer guest-starred in the very same episode. She played Val's coworker at the public relations firm.

    Wanna see Penn and Jenna (If they dated, they'd be Penna!) before they were household names? Watch the episode called "Copy That."

  • Let's talk about guys with facial hair.

    Posted on 12/01/2009 by Lisa

    Have you seen the episode of What I Like About You where Vince decides to grow a beard, and Holly's less than thrilled with his furry new look?

    Let's do a mini questionnaire (for anyone who's ever been attracted to a guy):

    1. Are you more attracted to dudes with facial hair, dudes who are kind of stubbly, or dudes who are clean-shaven?
    2. If you were in Holly's place, would you care if Vince suddenly stopped shaving? What would be the best (or worst) thing about it?
    3. Does Holly deserve a vote about what Vince does with his facial hair? It's his face.

  • Guest Star Watch: Abigail Breslin

    Posted on 11/26/2009 by Lisa

    Way before Abigail Breslin kicked zombie butt in Zombieland, she played Olive in Little Miss Sunshine. And way before that, she played Val and Holly's little neighbor on What I Like About You.

    We're airing her episode, "The Teddy Bear," @ 6:30pm tonight. Check it out if you're an Abigail fan, or you like teddy bears, or you're in the mood to snuggle on the couch and watch some funny TV.
