In ratings news, The Sound Of Music Live blew away the competition. It was NBC’s largest non-sports Thursday audience since the series finale of Frasier in May 2004, and its best non-sports Thursday demo number since the April 2009 ER finale. Meanwhile, Glee had its lowest ratings ever. »
It’s that time of year, PopWatchers — when otherwise responsible parents camp out and expose their children to threateningly low temperatures in order to see questionable lip synching and larger-than-life icons on puppet strings. No, I’m not talking about a Today show performance by One Direction… but close! It’s the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!Like any good spectacular, there was no shortage of 11th-hour drama: High winds in New York City nearly scuttled this year’s march through Manhattan (for only the second time in 87 years), but justice — and giant balloons! – prevailed. So buckle in, turkeys, because »

The Daily Show Get More: Daily Show Full Episodes, The Daily Show on Facebook Warning to late-night hosts: if you don't properly prepare for your interview with Jennifer Lawrence, she is totally going to call you out on it. Jon Stewart from The Daily Show found this out the hard way when he brought Jennifer onto the show on Thursday night. He first confused Jennifer by bringing out a photo of a young Helen Mirren since he thought they looked similar, and then Jennifer joked that the producers told her that Jon never prepares for interviews. "Do they tell you not to look into my eyes?" Jon joked. Watch the full interview above, and, note to Jon, Jennifer Lawrence looks like a young Ellen Barkin, not Helen. After the interview, Jennifer left in a car with her boyfriend, Nicholas Hoult, who has been occasionally joining Jennifer during her worldwide promotional tour for Catching Fire. »

The underappreciated films of 1999 are the focus in our last list of 90s overlooked greats...
The year 1999 was a significant year for film in many ways. Apart from being the year that George Lucas began his Star Wars prequels with The Phantom Menace, it also saw the release of The Blair Witch Project, a horror film which became one of the first to use the internet as a marketing tool, resulting in a massive hit. The Matrix ushered in a new age of special effects filmmaking, arguably paving the way for the superhero blockbusters crowding into multiplexes today.
Mainly, though, 1999 was simply a brilliant year for film. Justly lauded movies like Fight Club, The Green Mile and Eyes Wide Shut aside, there were a huge number of films that didn't get the critical or financial success they deserved - so many, »

“I’m a goddamn American icon!”
Depending on where you stand on Ocean’s Twelve, Ocean’s Thirteen represents either a group of enormously famous actors going back to salvage the goodwill they squandered in the middle entry of the franchise, or that same group of actors going back to where it all started just to prove they can still pull one over on us. If you’re bothered by even the mention of Ocean’s Twelve, Ocean’s Thirteen may strike you as an unnecessary extension of a series that maybe should’ve been a one-film wonder, but it seems, at face value, to be a safer one, at that. Danny Ocean and his gang of cocksure criminals return to the Sunset Strip, this time to take down a Vegas casino »

The cable news network has pulled Alec Baldwin’s Friday night interview show off the air for the next two weeks after the actor verbally lashed out at a photographer this week. Asked about a recent court case he’s testified in, the often combustable Baldwin responded to the snapper with what appeared to be homophobic remarks. Up Late With Alec Baldwin will not air tonight, when Ellen Barkin was set to be the guest, or on November 22. Here’s a statement from Baldwin that was posted today on MSNBC’s website: Related: Alec Baldwin’s MSNBC Show Falls To New Low I did not intend to hurt or offend anyone with my choice of words, but clearly I have – and for that I am deeply sorry. Words are important. I understand that, and will choose mine with great care going forward. What I said and did this week, as »

Jennifer Lawrence looked like a young Ellen Barkin when she made another pit stop during her press tour for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire in Rome on Thursday. She was joined by her costars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson for a photo call ahead of the premiere of their new flick at the Rome Film Festival.

While it.s arguable that director Kevin Greutert.s work on films such as Saw VI, Saw 3D and the upcoming Jessabelle put him in the presence of bonafide movie stars, his next film Visions has gathered quite the talented trio for its leads, as Ellen Barkin, Isla Fisher and Jim Parsons have all signed on for the film, which will hopefully be gloriously free of the words, "I want to play a game." We don.t have a very meaty plotline for this film yet, as we know it focuses on a pregnant woman who moves out to a wine vineyard with her husband, only to find herself the victim of a series of horrifying visions. Now, does that mean she.s seeing dead people or demons, or does she just see Miley Cyrus placing her naked body on things? All equally horrifying. Unfortunately, Shock Till You Drop couldn »
