It's a new year and there's a new season of 'Girls,' which means people are going to stir the pot by asking redundant questions like, "Why is Lena Dunham naked so much on 'Girls'?" It's a question Dunham has been asked -- and answered, gracefully -- several times, but when recently confronted with the question for the umpteenth time alongside producers Jenni Konner and Judd Apatow at the TCAs, the response was an appropriately frustrated one. Why are we still asking Dunham about her nudity on 'Girls,' especially as the show enters its third season?

Well, we probably should have seen this coming. HBO won't premiere 'Girls' season 3 until this coming Sunday (lucky you, we've got a clip right here!), but buzz around the Lena Dunham-scripted comedy remains ever high, paving the way to an official fourth season renewal for 2015!
Released in 1996 and directed by Ben Stiller, 'The Cable Guy' was a dark comedy that showed audiences a different side of Jim Carrey. The actor played Chip Douglas, a lonely and disturbed cable guy raised on TV, who desperately tries to befriend Steven (Matthew Broderick), but when Steven doesn't readily accept Chip's zealous and intrusive overtures, he finds that there are sinister consequences. Produced by Judd Apatow (who didn't receive credit for the work he did on the script at the time), the film was a moderate success and went on to become a cult classic. Seventeen years later, we're revisiting the cast of the film to see what they're up to now.
Earlier this summer came word that Judd Apatow would be helping comedienne Amy Schumer develop her first movie at Universal Pictures. Apparently, things are developing so nicely, Apatow has decided to make Schumer's project, titled 'Train Wreck,' his next directorial project.
We knew that 'The Simpsons'' current season would pack a wallop with its existing crop of guest stars, as well as an upcoming installment produced from a decade-old Judd Apatow script, but this is getting ridiculous. Newly added to the season are Apatow himself, along with frequent collaborators Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, Leslie Mann and even Channing Tatum, while 'Parks and Recreation' star Nick Offerman will appear later on!
Judd Apatow followed up his acclaimed television series 'Freaks and Geeks' (produced by Apatow, created by Paul Feig) with 'Undeclared,' a similarly -- and tragically -- short-lived series. This time, the plot followed a group of college freshmen struggling to navigate their new adult lives and all the friendships and relationships along the way. The show ended in 2002 after just one season, but found an extended life on DVD and helped kickstart the careers of Charlie Hunnam, Seth Rogen, and Jay Baruchel. 11 years later, we head back to the fictional University of Northeastern California and see what our favorite freshmen are up to now.
Get out your surprised faces everybody, because for a third time we're reporting that HBO's critical darling 'Girls' has been officially picked up for a third season. The news was more or less spoiled months ago by executive producer Judd Apatow, and this past week by series creator, writer, director and star Lena Dunham, but only now has HBO officially rung in to confirm a third season with a bonus of two additional episodes.

As if the monster ratings, critical buzz and recent Golden Globe wins weren't enough of a guarantee already, HBO's Lena Dunham-fronted, Judd Apatow-produced 'Girls' is inches from being officially approved for season 3. The possibility of a third season was floated around months ago when Apatow revealed that Dunham had already begun writing scripts, and while HBO remains mum about a confirmation, Dunham herself has confirmed a March production date for 'Girls' season 3.

If there's one thing that can be taken for granted when it comes to a Judd Apatow production, it's that there's going to be a lot of deleted scenes. 'This is 40' is no exception, and now there's a blooper reel, which shows the actors corpsing (show business talk for breaking character by laughing) during takes.
'Girls' might not have taken home so much gold at the 2012 Emmy Awards, but the 2013 Golden Globes are certainly making up for it. Previously awarding 'Girls' creator, writer, director and star Lena Dunham the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV Series, Comedy or Musical, the Golden Globes have upped the ante by awarding 'Girls' with the Best TV Series, Comedy or Musical statue.
