‘Empire’ Ratings Fall To Series Low After A Week Off, ‘Designated Survivor’ Rises

1 hour ago

There were some serious flashback braids, a very hot mic and the appearance of Eva Longoria as a gaming commissioner on Empire (2.1/8) last night but there was also ratings pain. Back after a week off, the Lee Daniels and Danny Strong created Fox drama was down 9% among adults 18-49 from its last original to hit a brand new series low. With a few exceptions, these demo basements for the still highest rated show of the night are becoming almost commonplace in Empire's… »

Seth Meyers’ “Closer Look” At Trump’s First 100 Days: President’s Brag & Butter

2 hours ago

Seth Meyers gave President Donald Trump’s first 100 days another “Closer Look” last night, and the upshot is unavoidable: “It’s like a law of physics,” the NBC Late Night host said. “For every Trump action there is an equal and opposite Trump clip.” Thus begins a clip-fest of Trump then & now, his past statements certainly making a strong case for Meyers’ new law of physics. Executive orders, said Trump when Barack Obama was signing them, are “a disaster. He doesn’t want… »

2 hours ago

Late Late Show‘s James Corden will make a decent looking old guy, even if he does resemble “a Republican senator trying to take away your health care.” The CBS host and Carpool Karaoke driver last night gave a test spin on a new app that transforms headshot photos with aging, aging in reverse and gender switch. Watch the clip above to see Corden’s morphings, but here’s a few quick takes by the man himself: As a digitized youth, Corden looks like “a combination of the… »

3 hours ago

Saturday Night Live‘s Leslie Jones took full advantage of last night’s Tonight show appearance by doing in person what thousands of meme imitators could only manage on video: Asking Dr. Phil “howbow dah”? Jimmy Fallon’s viral-savvy Tonight audience clearly needed no backgrounding about the infamous 13-year-old Dr. Phil Show guest who went viral with her ludicrously affected “street” taunt “cash me ousside howbow dah?,” which translates to “catch me outside, how about… »

‘The Simpsons’ Looks At Donald Trump’s First 100 Days In Office

16 hours ago

The Simpsons is giving its take on President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office — and it’s not a pretty picture. It is a dark and stormy night. A lifeless Sean Spicer hangs from the rafters next to his podium. Kellyanne Conway flees in terror — at the prospect of replacing him. A pair of White House inner-circle power players are attacking each other. And Potus is sitting in bed, phone in hand, books at his sides (including Florida on $10 Million a Day), audibly… »

With only six days to go before film and TV writers could launch their second strike in a decade, labor and management still strongly disagree over the impact of the last strike – a troubling sign that could indicate the two sides aren't seeing eye-to-eye about the WGA's willingness to strike again this time. On Monday, after WGA leaders received overwhelming support from their members for strike authorization, the AMPTP said the last strike cost writers "more than $287… »

19 hours ago

One of the absolute pleasures of getting to do a series like The Actor’s Side is sitting down with a certified legend like Rita Moreno, which is exactly what I got to do for this week’s special two-part edition of our Emmy season crop of interviews. Just about everything this Oscar-, Emmy-, Tony- and Grammy-winning star said was pure gold. At 85, she is still going strong and looks about 20 years younger (and she is the first to say that, by the way). Currently back on… »
