The network is hoping that Facebook’s commenting and poll capabilities will help lend a fun, interactive vibe to the show. According to Variety, “Recent topics on the show have included Taylor Swift posting pics with her boyfriend Calvin Harris; the aftermath of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner’s breakup; and reviews of Gwen Stefani’s recently released album, This Is What the Truth Feels Like.”

To get notifications when a new episode is starting, you just have to like E!’s Facebook page. Plus all episodes will be available to watch after the fact on Facebook as well as eonline.com and E!’s app.
