Two more years! Two more years!

One of the biggest pieces of pop culture in 2014 is about to take over the next two years as well.

That's because the new seasons of Serial just got their premiere dates, and we're so ready for the podcast to envelope every aspect of our lives!

Host/Producer Sarah Koenig made the announcement herself in a blog post on Thursday saying that the two new stories will be recorded concurrently with Season Two premiering this Fall, and Season Three debuting Spring 2016.

There's no word yet on which criminal cases will be followed for the Adnan Syed follow-ups, but Sarah did give a small hint, saying:

While the media watches to see how 19 Kids And Counting star Josh Duggar's molestation scandal unfolds, someone is keeping an eye on the media.

Non-profit group Media Matters For America studied the coverage of the ongoing scandal across three news networks and found a shocking result.

While CNN and MSNBC spent about an hour each on the story from May 21-25, Fox News spent a shockingly low ONE MINUTE TWENTY SECONDS.

That's over five days!

The only explanation available for the nearly complete lack of coverage is Howard Kurtz, host of Fox's Media Buzz, who said on his May 24 show:

Did Saturday Night Live Steal A Sketch?? Check Out The Evidence Against Them HERE!

| Filed under: Media MinuteSaturday Night LiveGotta Have Faith

We really hope this isn't true!

While Saturday Night Live has been accused of taking ideas for some of their sketches before, one of their skits from this weekend's episode has them in hot water.

That's because the concept of their Pitch Perfect sketch was done, in its entirety, by Canadian satire series This Hour has 22 Minutes this past January.

The idea for the skit is that a team on Win, Lose, or Draw has the impossible task of drawing The Prophet Muhammad while trying to compete for $1 million.

We can see how two separate companies could come up with the same idea since drawing Muhammad has always been taboo, especially in the news recently, but the smaller jokes are what really make this seem like thievery.

For one thing, the contestants are playing for $1 million dollars in both skits, which is an arbitrary number that wouldn't exist in a real life game show, while also featuring a player with the name Taylor.

But what really drives the fact home is the hosts of each show are wearing the same exact outfit, down to the purple polka-dot tie.

Basically, it's a little too similar to simply be a coincidence…

Ch-ch-check out both shorts and decide for yourself (above & below)!!!

Kris Jenner is not going to like this.

If you're not the biggest fan of keeping up with The Kardashians, then today is your lucky day!

That's because one pop culture defector is making a browser extension that will block any and all Kim Kardashian-related news.

James Shamsi was tired of having to wade through Kendall, Kylie, and the rest of the family to get to other news, so he invented KardBlock to fix the problem.

His website clearly states his opinion on the royal fam, saying:

The emancipation of Mimi's PR Team!

It seems like Mariah Carey isn't getting a break anytime soon.

That's because in addition to her love life being up in the air, her powerhouse publicist just announced that she has dropped Mariah as a client!

This comes as a shock, because not only had Cindi Berger been representing Mariah for over 15 years, but the singer was just about to start her Las Vegas residency, which probably would have been a good thing for her PR team.

Following the announcement, Cindi released a statement, saying:
