Well-documented Jane Dough guilty pleasure The Newsroom ended last weekend (R.I.P.!). This was devastating, but luckily the beginning of September (and the end of summer) has served to remind us that many of our beloved fall shows will be returning in just a few short weeks, including a huge slate of guilty pleasure shows that give The Newsroom a run for its money. At The Jane Dough, we firmly believe in owning the things we love. In that spirit, here’s a slideshow you can reference the next time someone comes over and makes fun of your DVR listings.

The life of a writer can be rather difficult. Multifaceted actor/teacher/student James Franco knows this all too well because he’s a part-time scribe himself, and he wants mopey, uninspired “Girls” main character Hannah to find a job already, whatever kind of work it may entail.

And she’s the only person in the world. “Girls” zombies everywhere, you can go sob into your pillows now.

Though some of my posts may appear otherwise, I really like HBO’s new comedy, “Girls,” which is well written and exposes a lot of my secret shames (cupcake binges, dating the worst breed of men, writing nonfiction essays at a slothful pace). So I was somewhat perplexed to see writer Lena Dunham trash chick-lit recently.

I’m a fan of HBO’s brand spankin’ new comedy “Girls,” but cannot wait for the hype to blow over, as it distorted my viewing experience and shoved the project down my throat long before the highly-anticipated show first aired and I could even formulate my own opinion on it. Another one of my pet issues with the program, which is written by “Tiny Furniture” creator Lena Dunham, is its nepotism, which is nicely conveyed in a joke poster for the show.

If you’re anything like the characters in upcoming HBO comedy “Girls,” you survive in New York City by skipping lunch, so resources for luxuries such as cable and HBO are impossible to come by. That’s why the network is offering complimentary access to the show’s first few episodes.

Though we enjoyed watching columnist Carrie Bradshaw prance around New York City in Manolos during our financially clueless college years, we figured out pretty early on that the “Sex and the City” character would lack the means to fund her sparkly frivolities in the real world. And yet many of us still pursued journalism or other low paying glamour fields to follow through with our aspiration of leading lavish lives, only to learn that happy hours, broker’s fees, monthly rent, and utilities bills put noticeable dents in our wallets and leave us feeling more like cautionary tales than successful career women.
That’s why we’re pleased to see the entertainment industry expose the truth about residing in a city — particularly New York — as a young person, or shall I say “emerging adult.” To promote the new NYC-centered sitcom, “Don’t Trust The B— in Apt. 23,” which we’ve taken to task in the past, ABC has just released an infographic listing some of the inexpensive places to eat in the concrete jungle.
