Ally McBeal Turns 20: Top Five Moments of All-Time

9 September 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I can still remember the first time the idea of a unisex bathroom was introduced during the show. It might not seem so crazy now, but 20 years ago, it was practically taboo. And that’s exactly what Ally McBeal brought to network TV: a lot of fierceness, a lot of smarts, and a lot of plenty else. Ally McBeal gave us some of the most memorable characters on television (e.g. the formidable Ling Woo), and arguably, it also featured the best cast to ever get together for a show. We had Calista Flockhart, Lucy Liu, Portia de Rossi, Greg Germann,

‘Ally McBeal’ at 20: David E. Kelley on Feminism, Overnight Success and Calista Flockhart’s ‘Magical’ Performance

8 September 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A flawed protagonist. A tone that turns easily from drama to comedy to smash-cut fantasy. A young and fetching professional woman who is more than willing to revel in her weaknesses.

Those sound like all the elements for a pitch that could make the rounds of premium cable and streaming services today. But in fact they were the were the essential ingredients in a Fox series that premiered 20 years ago: “Ally McBeal.”

The series birthed by David E. Kelley at the height of his network TV power defied easy categorization even as it quickly resonated with its post-yuppie, pre-millennial target audience.

To its creator’s surpise, “Ally McBeal” sparked a national conversation about the state and status of women in women’s movement. Remember the 1998 Time magazine cover that featured an insouciant Calista Flockhart juxtaposed against images of Susan B. Anthony, Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem and asked “Is Feminism Dead?” Kelley »

Kevin Can Wait: Will Widower Kevin Rebound With Leah Remini's Vanessa?

4 September 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Kevin Can Wait‘s newly widowed Kevin Gable isn’t ready for romance, but he’s not closing the door on a potential relationship with Leah Remini’s Vanessa Cellucci. A working relationship, that is.

Executive producer Rob Long tells TVLine that there is no “master plan” to make Kevin and Vanessa a couple in Season 2 (premiering Monday, Sept. 25 at 9/8c on CBS), but the characters will be working together in some capacity, while also forming an “uneasy” friendship that builds on their dynamic from the two-part Season 1 finale. »

Et Obsessions: 'Life of Kylie,' Kesha's 'Rainbow' Album, 'Difficult People,' and Everything Princess Diana

8 August 2017 6:45 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Here at Et, we're obsessed with a lot of things -- and for the week of Aug. 7 to Aug. 13, this is what we're most excited about:

Why We're Obsessed With 'Difficult People'

The sassy sitcom that raises self-involvement to new comedic heights is back! Difficult People's Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner return for a third season on Hulu, alongside the rest of the cast, including Andrea Martin, James Urbaniak, and Gabourey Sidibe, plus an impressive array of guest stars: Stockard Channing, Tony Hale and Vanessa Williams! Meanwhile, the show will also welcome back Fred Armisen and scene-stealer Jackie Hoffman.

‘Difficult People’ Review: Season 3 Is The Deepest Yet, Taking On Woody Allen, Politics, and Happiness

8 August 2017 9:33 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Difficult People” isn’t for everyone, but that’s a big factor in its charm. The always whipsmart, fast-paced comedy created by Julie Klausner is extremely insular in its focus on Julie (Klausner) and Billy (Billy Eichner), pop culture-obsessed New York comedians whose bad attitudes are often the cause of their problems. But that focus means that as the show has progressed, the characters have had the chance to… well, maybe not “grow,” in the traditional sitcom sense. However, they do seem capable of change.

Which is good news, as Season 3 of a series like this could easily fall into a more-of-the-same trap. The core principles of “Difficult People” haven’t been altered — Julie and Billy are still best friends, and still relatively disdainful of anyone outside their friendship. But, based on the five episodes screened, “Difficult People” isn’t interested in treading water this season, contributing to a richer, »

Exclusive: Tony Hale, Billy’s Love Life and More Revelations About ‘Difficult People’ Season 3

7 August 2017 8:35 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Normally a packed Italian restaurant and bar in the East Village of New York City, San Marzano has been transformed into Lola’s D’s Café (more on that name change in a bit), a less busy café run by Denise (Gabourey Sidibe) and Nate (Derrick Baskin), where Billy Epstein (Billy Eichner) works on Difficult People. During Et’s visit to the set of the Hulu comedy, which just so happens to be a day they’re filming scenes from the season three finale, things are noticeably different.

For one thing, there’s that name. Normally called D’s Café, the place has been taken over by Lola, an outspoken transgender waitress played by the bitingly funny Shakina Nayfack. “Lola saved us from Sephora,” Denise explains to the staff -- Billy, Lola, Denise, Nate and Matthew (Cole Escola), who has triumphantly returned from a Supermarket Sweep-turned-Scientology fiasco -- gathered around a table.
