‘Rizzoli & Isles’ Hits 100 Episodes While Planning a Series Finale

17 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

TNT’s “Rizzoli & Isles” hits the 100-episode mark with its July 25 episode, the first of two milestones this year as the cable hit prepares to end its seven-season run on Sept. 5.

The 100th episode, directed by series star Angie Harmon, follows Boston police detective Jane Rizzoli (Harmon) and medical examiner Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander) during the investigation of a murder at a biker bar. In a nod to the series reaching 100 episodes, showrunner Jan Nash says it will use the official Warner Bros. production number, 2M7258-100, as both the title and a prisoner number within the segment.

“As we [planned] the final season of the show, we had watched the pilot again, and we did give some thought to doing something that isn’t exactly like the pilot but had some of the same tone of the pilot, which was a much darker version of the show than had existed for much of the show’s history »

The former history teacher, who sits on the boards of civil rights and social justice organizations The Advancement and Sankofa, also honored “black women, in particular, who have spent their lifetimes dedicated to nurturing everyone before themselves. We can and will do better for you.”

If I Was Your Girlfriend: The Extended History of Madonna and Prince's Relationship

20 May 2016 1:45 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When the news broke that Madonna was slated to honor Prince at the 2016 Billboard awards, the reaction was … mixed. For example, someone started a Change.org petition decrying the choice, and news of the outcry apparently reached Billboard executive producer Mark Bracco, who defended the decision to have Madonna perform on Tuesday to the Associated Press. Madonna and Prince had something of a tangled relationship, to put it mildly: Consensus seems to be that they dated in the mid-'80s. They collaborated in 1989 for "Love Song," from Madonna's album Like a Prayer. At some point, their relationship soured, to »

On this day in pop culture history: ‘Top Gun’ premiered, ‘Seinfeld’ killed Susan

16 May 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

30 years ago today, Navy fighter pilot hotshots Maverick, Iceman, and Goose first flew across big screens around the world. It was on May 16, 1986 that Top Gun opened in theaters. Already well on his way to becoming a household name thanks to 1983’s Risky Business, Tom Cruise became a certified movie star with the release of Top Gun. It was also the first hit for director Tony Scott, who went on to direct other action flicks and thrillers like Crimson Tide, Man on Fire, and Déjà Vu (which reunited him with Top Gun star Val Kilmer) before his death in 2012. Top Gun, a slick, upbeat, Reagan-era ode to masculinity, boasted a memorable soundtrack (with Berlin’s “Take My Breath Away” and Kenny Loggins’ “Danger Zone”), impressive dogfights, an endlessly quotable though often goofy script, and, upon its release, immediate box office success. It became the highest grossing movie of 1986. Also on this day, »
