American Housewife was originally called The Second-Fattest Housewife in Westport. It’s a title that perfectly represents Tuesday’s series premiere, assuming you can get past the fact that its central character isn’t actually fat.
Of course, that’s part of the alleged joke in this mean-spirited sitcom that, having changed its title, is hopefully planning to throw out its premise and start fresh in Week 2.
The series centers on Katie Otto (Mike & Molly‘s Katy Mixon), a mother of three with serious body-image issues. When »

Last summer, in the weeks and months leading into the last Marvel Phase Two movie Ant-Man, a new series of viral videos debuted, featuring the McU character Christine Everhart, played by Leslie Bibb. The videos, which were formatted as Whih TV news reports, shed new light on Scott Lang's (Paul Rudd) backstory before the movie hit theaters. Today, Christine Everhart returns with a new Whih report that ties into Captain America: Civil War, arriving in theaters May 6.
The Whih News report, dubbed "The World, the Hero Leaves Behind," examines the "cost" of The Avengers' heroic exploits, in the aftermath of the Sokovia destruction as seen in last year's Avengers: Age of Ultron. Christine Everhart is joined by another political correspondent, Will Adams, as they both argue whether or not The Avengers should be able to operate independently, or if there should be some oversight from the government and other world leaders. »
Christine Everhart may be recognized for doing a special spread (and a story) on Tony Stark, but the character, played by actress Leslie Bibb, has clearly got ahead in the ever-growing Marvel Cinematic Universe. That’s at least judging by the several viral videos which were linked to Ant-Man last year, and featured Everhart as a reporter for a Whih World News. Now it appears Marvel Studios and Disney will be continuing this great viral marketing tool in anticipation of next month’s Captain America: Civil War, and hopefully the rest of the “Phase Three” movies that follow. The latest Whih Newsfront special report investigates “The World the Hero Leaves Behind,” which has a quick debate between Christine Everhart, who seems to be “Team Stark,” and a “political correspondent” Will Adams. Watch below! Directed by Anthony & Joe Russo and from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War »

Whenever a movie sits on the shelf for more than a couple years before being released, it’s hard not to wonder if the reason is because it turned out poorly. But when you look through the history books, or run a quick Google search, you’ll realize that many exceptional horror movies have languished in pre-release hell over the years. Films like You’re Next, The Cabin in the Woods, and Trick ‘r Treat took their sweet time entering our lives, and the same can certainly be said about Flight 7500 (formerly 7500).
But was this one worth the wait?
Written by Craig Rosenberg and directed by Takashi Shimizu (The Grudge), and originally set for release way back in 2012, Flight 7500 centers on the passengers of a doomed flight from Los Angeles to Tokyo. »
