Sexually unapologetic women are all over TV these days: From “Outlander” to “Orphan Black" The Starz series, with its “revolutionary” wedding episode, joins a several recent shows "that treat the sexual activities of their leading ladies with refreshing matter-of-factness and genuine interest,” says Maureen Ryan. She adds: "But almost lost amid this welcome expansion of protagonists is a really important fact: In these narratives, sexual women are not shamed by the shows themselves for their desires. The women own their sexuality and the narratives are interested in exploring their desires -- and in judging their mistakes, carnal and otherwise, without stealthily blaming them for being sexual in the first place." Study: Tweeting while watching TV can leave you with fewer brain cells University of Sussex researchers found that "people who used a higher number of media devices concurrently also had smaller grey matter density in the part of the brain »

There was no curbing the enthusiasm of audience members during the Q-and-a session portion of Sunday’s Citi Presents Larry David and David Steinberg in Conversation. Some of the more cringe-worthy moments: three women begging for hugs from Mr. David after propositioning him for dates (he obliged the hugs), one guy asking him to autograph a DVD copy of season 2 of “Curb your Enthusiasm” and then bum rushing the stage, and an aspiring female comedian desperately pleading for David to have a conversation with her “in real life,” a request that drew equal parts awkward laughter and boos. Of course, the gruff Emmy-winning “Seinfeld” co-creator handled it all with signature bone-dry wit, at one point telling a fan, “Thank you for that idiotic question.”
Produced by Carolines on Broadway’s live entertainment division and held at The Theatre at Ace Hotel in downtown L.A., it was the unexpected bursts »

Larry David "quit" Seinfeld for the second time following a meeting with NBC execs about the fledgling sitcom's upcoming third season in 1991. In conversation with frequent collaborator David Steinberg at the Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles on Sunday, the comedian and showrunner recalled that before the meeting, executives from Seinfeld producer Castle Rock Entertainment told him, "Look, just do us a favor, Ok? Just don't say anything." The network's ideas were universally terrible, David said, "but I kept quiet." In the parking lot after the meeting, he told Jerry Seinfeld and Castle Rock he was quitting.

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Chris Pratt was on "The Tonight Show" Thursday night, confessing to Jimmy Fallon that he would steal "Saturday Night Live" sketches and re-perform them in high school. Jimmy showed off Chris's first headshot, with all that moppy hair, from when he was 20 years old and just moved to L.A. to become an actor. The story of how he got the photo taken is amazing, though. You have to listen to it. Chris and Jimmy also played "Word Sneak," trying to work two odd words into casual conversation. They were pretty good!

One of the buzziest titles from this year's Toronto Film Festival was unfortunately a movie I didn't actually see, Chris Rock's Top Five, which Paramount Pictures acquired for somewhere around $12.5-15 million and they aren't wasting time getting the ensemble comedy into theaters. The studio announced today a December 5 limited release with a December 12 wide release to follow. Written, directed by, and starring Rock, Top Five tells the story of New York City comedian-turned-film star Andre Allen (Rock), whose unexpected encounter with a journalist forces him to confront both the career that made him famous and the life he left behind. From what I've been told the film is great not only for those that are in it, but also for the unexpected cameos. I don't know who else would be left, but the cast list includes Rosario Dawson, J.B. Smoove, Gabrielle Union, Tracy Morgan, Cedric the Entertainer, Kevin Hart, »
