11 February 2017 12:59 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Kim Kardashian West spent her Saturday doing some early spring cleaning, organizing her extensive archive of the many outfits she’s worn over the years.

The 36-year-old reality star showed fans a rare behind-the-scenes look at her massive collection of gowns and shoes in a series of early morning Snapchat videos.

“Just all the things that I’ve worn,” she said, as she flipped through the various racks of dresses — all perfectly hung and labelled according to date and occasion.

“Remember all this stuff?” she asked before listing some of the looks. “Prince concert… look at this gown from the »

‘Abstract: The Art of Design’ Review: All The Season 1 Episodes, Ranked

10 February 2017 4:50 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Abstract: The Art of Design” is not necessarily a show we’d recommend for binge-viewing. The new Netflix series, streaming now following its Sundance 2017 premiere, is far from bad. Executive produced by Morgan Neville, the documentarians assembled to capture the spotlighted subjects have done a masterful job, by and large, of highlighting the unique sort of artistry at work here. However, episode by episode, every installment strikes such a similar tone and mood that to truly appreciate the difference in aethestics and disciplines on display, you’ll want to space them out.

You might also favor certain installments over others, whether it be because of subject matter or the execution itself. We reviewed the first two installments last month, finding it to be a fascinating approach to the importance of design we might otherwise take for granted. But now that we’ve been able to see all eight episodes, we have our favorites. »

Film Review: ‘The Lego Batman Movie’ Delivers the Usual Laughs

10 February 2017 7:57 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “The Lego Batman Movie” is more of a parody than the laugh-out-loud hijinks of the surprising “The Lego Movie,” but the legend of The Bats is ripe for a good skewering, and the movie has a lot of fun doing it. Will Arnett reprises the voice as the title character, with Zach Galifianakis taking on the antics of The Joker.

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Unlike the first Lego film, the Batman version is a recitation of jokes that are pretty much tipped off, wrapped around a squirrelly “Batman needs a family” plot line. Both tend to drag down the lightness that the Lego franchise has established, but the jokes are lighting fast, rarely pausing to take a breath. Don’t like this one-liner? Here are ten more in the next two minutes. There were five screenwriters on this one, and I picture them being more like Jay Leno-like jokesters than a cohesive team. »

Fox Will Throw Super Bowl Spotlight on ’24,’ ‘Empire,’ ‘APB’

4 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox has sold dozens of Super Bowl ads to marketers like Pepsi, Kia and Skittles. But it will also air dozens of its own for programs like “Empire,” “APB, “The Mick” and “Lethal Weapon.”

Viewers of Super Bowl LI understand from the outset that they’ll see 60 or more high-caliber TV commercials, all part of the annual ritual of watching the game. What many fail to realize each year is that they will also see a bevy of “promos” for various TV shows  to which the network broadcasting the game hopes to draw attention. Fox expects to air about 30 promos across its Super Bowl broadcast, pre-game and post-game coverage, with about ten of them slated to air in the game itself.

Just like Budweiser and Snickers, networks have something to sell during the Super Bowl, too. Promos typically make up 15% of the Super Bowl’s ad time, according to Kantar, a »

Samantha Bee Will Hold Comedic Alternative to White House Correspondents’ Dinner

30 January 2017 4:30 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Relations between the White House and the press corps that covers it are arguably at an all-time low under the Trump administration, but Samantha Bee intends to offer a solution. She will host a gala dinner in Washington, D.C. that could serve as an alternative to the annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner.

Bee and producers from her TBS satirical-comedy program, “Full Frontal,” will take over Washington’s Willard Hotel on April 29 at the same time the Whca dinner is slated to take place, and invite journalists and celebrities to attend. It was not immediately clear whether TBS would air the proceedings on that evening, or even whether it would air them at all.

“The evening is sure to bring plenty of surprises, music, food, and laughter—and if you’re not careful you just might learn something,” said Bee, in a prepared statement. “Specifically, you’ll learn how screwed we’d be without a free »

It almost feels like a distant memory, but there was a time when people were worried that Stephen Colbert might have been a mistake when chosen to take over The Late Show for David Letterman.   In similar fashion to The Tonight Show, there was also a time when people worried about Jimmy Fallon’s leadership chops in being able to take over for Jay Leno.  Fallon’s first few months of the show were marred by mixed reviews as he was trying to find his late night style and win over audiences.  Through time Fallon has proven he’s more than capable in
