Jon Stewart’s Departure Guts Comedy Central’s Daily Show

Jon Stewart is leaving The Daily Show and moving to greener and different pastures.His voice, opening music and laser perspective on the wrongs and occasional rights in American life will be missed, as we have a lot to thank him for. His show was the incubator for John Oliver (now on HBO) Larry Wilmore (filling in the vacant slot of Stephen Colbert) and even Steve Carell, whose career exploded after his Daily Show stint. Even writing and performing alums like Frank DeCaro are still making an important mark in radio and TV.But sadly everything changes and all things come to an end. […]

Marcia Wallace, actress from 'The Simpsons' and 'The Bob Newhart Show', dies at 70
As Edna Krabappel on The Simpsons, Marcia Wallace may be the only 4th-grade teacher to have the same student for 24 years. Before that, she was beloved as Carol Kester, the lovelorn, wisecracking secretary on The Bob Newhart Show.

Wallace, who was a breast cancer survivor for 28 years, has died at age 70, according to the showrunner of The Simpsons. “I was tremendously saddened to learn this morning of the passing of the brilliant and gracious Marcia Wallace,” producer Al Jean said in a statement to EW. “She was beloved by all at The Simpsons and we intend to retire her irreplaceable character.

Cheyenne Jackson on His Marriage: 'We Had a Good Long Run'
Despite the demise of his marriage to Monte Lapka, Cheyenne Jackson has nothing but good things to say about his soon-to-be ex-husband. On Thursday, the same day his rep released a statement confirming the couple were calling it quits, the actor and singer touched on the sensitive subject during an interview with The Frank DeCaro Show on SiriusXM's OutQ. "Yeah, it is a sad thing. It's a sad thing anytime a relationship ends," he says. "We had a good long run, almost 13 years." Adding that the split was both "mutual" and "amicable," Jackson, 38, goes on to praise his former partner.

Cheyenne Jackson Talks Divorce & Cory Monteith
Cheyenne Jackson stopped by SiriusXM's The Frank DeCaro Show on Thursday, opening up about his split from Monte Lapka in his first radio interview since his divorce announcement.

"Yeah, it's a sad thing anytime a relationship ends," said Jackson, who had been with Lapka for almost 13 years and married for two. "It was mutual, amicable, he's a wonderful man."

Jackson admitted that while the breakup hurts, what is more painful for him are the "horrible blogs" that have speculated on his subsequent change in appearance.

The 38-year-old actor cleared the air, saying, "I do have a mustache, but it's for the new Ira Sachs movie [Love is Strange] with Alfred Molina and Marissa Tomei and John Lithgow, so that's what that's for. I do have a new tattoo, and it's personal. I'm happy to tell [the story behind it] now because it's out there, but you know, it's for my dad."

In his new film Java Heat, Kellan Lutz does bare-chested pull-ups from the ceiling, no-feet pushups, then decides to get a Thai massage, baring his perfectly sculpted behind in these Nsfw shots. Sadly, when he flips over, there's a man blocking the shot just perfectly. The director should be fired.

Ru? Instant Reaction Review Podcast Ep. 34 – Skyfall With Special Guest Frank DeCaro

Well Skyfall took over the box office in a big way, and deservedly so. Now I’m pretty interested to see how it does in the coming weeks.

We had a special guest with us this week, and it made for a lot of fun actually. Frank DeCaro, who conveniently had not seen Skyfall (but backed up our previous rating of Wreck-It Ralph), joined us to talk about his new book, The Dead Celebrity Cookbook Presents Christmas in Tinseltown: Celebrity Recipes and Hollywood Memories from Six Feet Under the Mistletoe, which is really one hell of a title. From the Star Wars Holiday Special to It’s a Wonderful Life, the book includes recipes and, as Frank puts it, love letters to the celebrities who put them forward.

Ru? Instant Reaction Review Podcast Ep. 33 – Wreck-It Ralph And Giveaway

We had just about written this week off, and as is often the case with lowered expectations, we found something amazing and beyond surprising. Well, I suppose many will argue that it is as a result of those lowered expectations, and frankly, they might be onto something.

In any case, we were blown away by Wreck-It Ralph, a film that we both thought was going to be a whipped-together bit of fluff, and largely an excuse to throw out video game cameos. We still aren’t sure which way the money is flowing there, or how those contracts work exactly, but the trailers would lead you to believe that Q-bert had a major role in the film.

We got about halfway through this one and finally had to stop and blink at each other. What was going on here?

A fascinatingly clever movie with a great script and a lot of fun,

Michael Jackson's sweet potato pie: 'Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough'

  • Pop2it
The King of Pop, Michael Jackson, is no longer with us but we can all have a little bit of Jacko with us this year as we gather for Thanksgiving.

In his book, "The Dead Celebrity Cookbook," author Frank DeCaro shares Jackson's recipe for a novel spin on sweet potatoes at the holiday meal. Instead of a side dish, the potatoes become a pie -- replacing (or maybe complementing) that Turkey Day go-to, pumpkin pie. We're not entirely convinced that Jacko ever went within 4 feet of an oven, but hey, maybe he supervised.

We're thinking it's totally doable in an hour. Even make it the day before and just re-heat while you're eating (and talking) turkey.

And, no, it doesn't involve medical grade anesthetic, so if that's the kind of recipe you're looking for, look elsewhere.

Bea Arthur's Favorite Vegetarian Breakfast: Get the Recipe!
Bea Arthur famously sat around the kitchen table and sliced into cheesecake week after week as Dorothy Zbornak on TV's The Golden Girls. In real life, it seems, the late actress was a more health-conscious eater. In The Dead Celebrity Cookbook, author Frank DeCaro has collected and presented an array of recipes by beloved (and dead) stars - everyone from Arthur to Frank Sinatra to Katharine Hepburn to Lucille Ball. "I miss those days when celebrities still had mystery about them," DeCaro, formerly the movie critic for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, says about his decision to write the book.

Lady Gaga dissed by Charo, accused of copying Well, Charo won’t be buying Lady Gaga’s new album anytime soon as it seems she thinks the popular singer is a bit of a copycat.

Charo spoke about Gaga on Frank DeCaro’s OutQ radio show on Sirius Xm and revealed her real feelings, states NY Daily News. “I can tell you, to me, Lady Gaga is Madonna with diarrhea,” Charo admitted.

She also revealed that she doesn’t like Gaga because she feels “Born This Way” is copied from Madonna’s “Express Yourself,” but Gaga has tried to make it seem like her own idea.

Do you agree with Charo?

Cheyenne Jackson and Michael Urie Rip "Newsweek"'s Ramin Setoodeh For "Gays Can't Play Straight" Article

  • The Backlot
Cheyenne Jackson, Michael Urie

When asked to comment on Ramin Setoodeh's recent article about how openly gay actors can't convincingly play heterosexual roles, Cheyenne Jackson and Michael Urie straight-out called the Newsweek entertainment writer an ''asshole'' who's ''unconscionable.'' The two out actors were speaking at a talkback after Monday's performance of The Temperamentals, Jon Marans' acclaimed Off-Broadway play about early gay rights activists in the 1950s.

After moderator Frank DeCaro asked Jackson what he thought of Setoodeh's piece, the Broadway star of Finian's Rainbow and TV guest star of 30 Rock said:

It was infuriating on so many levels. Not only does [Setoodeh] say that a gay man can't play straight, he got personal, picking on Sean Hayes in Promises, Promises, [pointing out] certain scenes where he thinks [Sean] is stiff and uncomfortable. And then he picks on Jonathan Groff, who just came out. He's a young teen heartthrob [in Glee]. He's so talented and

Betty White Lines video tribute from the St. Olaf Glee Club

  • Pop2it
This might be the best video we've ever seen. In preparation for Betty White's appearance on "Saturday Night Live" May 8 (and to celebrate the general Betty White over-taking of the entire world), the men of the St. Olaf Glee Club have put together a tribute to everyone's favorite Golden Girl. You may remember that St. Olaf, Mn is where Betty White's character Rose Nylund was from.

We can't decide which one is our favorite Betty Line -- "Can you believe that back-stabbing slut?" or "I'm such a whore, I can't say no" or "I'm sleeping with the drummer from Coldplay." Just when you think it can't get any better there's a rap breakdown all about Betty's life.

We have to applaud Frank DeCaro, Fredrick Ford and Jim Colucci, the performers in the video. DeCaro is a midday host on SiriusXM's OutQ, Colucci is the author of "The Q
