While Ray Romano's Hank has developed a touching relationship with Max throughout Season 5 of NBC's "Parenthood," it's clear he's also stayed close with the Braverman family because he has lingering feelings for his ex, Sarah (Lauren Graham).
In Zap2it's exclusive sneak peek at the show's 14th episode, "Just Like at Home" (airing Thursday, Feb. 27), watch some of those feelings bubble to the surface as he and Sarah work on editing pictures from their photo shoot.
The clip starts with Sarah and Hank's usual banter as he compliments some of her photos in a very Hank way -- "'Some of these are pretty good,' a rave," quips Sarah -- and then gives her some tough photography advice about which shots he thinks are best.
Then, however, the tension rises as Sarah puts on lipstick in preparation for a dinner with her neighbor-with-benefits, Carl. "I've worn lipstick before. I wear it frequently, »
Stand-up comic and sitcom star Ray Romano shared some solid post-Valentines Day romance advice to male viewers in Wednesday’s “Conan” audience: If your wife hypothetically asks which of her friends you’d want to have a threesome with, make sure your response still includes her as the other participant. Romano misunderstood the question and named two, omitting his partner of 26 years. Looking back on it, Romano told host Conan O’Brien that the question is really of the no-win variety. “You don’t answer that, you start a fire in your house or something,” he joked.

Any film where the title rhymes immediately gains my attention. Add to that the fact Rob The Mob reteams Andy Garcia with director Raymond De Felita, who worked together on the fantastic City Island, and I am immediately hooked. Set in Queens in 1992, the film sees Michael Pitt decide to do exactly what the title suggests. But once Pitt also makes off with a copy of the mob’s family tree, he finds not only the mob wanting revenge but also the FBI wanting assistance.
Although it certainly has comedic elements, there is also a serious and dark vibe to the project, especially if you look up the true story on which the film is based.

For Super Bowl week and with the 2014 Winter Olympics right around the corner, "Saturday Night Live" aired a special, hosted by the soon-departing Seth Meyers, of the best sports-themed sketches from the show's history.
The special hit a lot of highlights and not just under the caveat of sports -- just great sketches in the history of the show. Here are some of the gems (minus Chris Farley skating with Nancy Kerrigan, for which we could not find video):

PBS assembled Jimmie Walker, George Takei, Bob Newhart, Ray Romano, and Leslie Uggams for a panel on the network’s “Pioneers of Television” — a medium that might have been very different without them. The five changed TV in ways great and small. Newhart’s changes, like his comedy, were nuanced and quiet. Takei skewered notions of bad Asian drivers, among others. Uggams added to diversity behind the camera. Walker helped set a model for sitcoms and comedians alike. And Romano finally got New Yorkers their due. (Okay, his contribution is a little more complicated than that.) Also read: ‘Dyn-o-mite!’: Jimmie Walker and. »

Does he or doesn't he? That seemed to be the question on Parenthood's fans' minds since Ray Romano made his debut as Hank, the irritable photographer and Sarah's (Lauren Graham) love interest. He soon developed a bond with Max (Max Burkholder), Adam (Peter Krause) and Kristina's (Monica Potter) autistic son, leaving viewers to wonder if Hank also has Asperger's syndrome, but was never diagnosed. And we finally seemed to get an answer in a recent episode after Hank read a book on the disease and said, "I'm reading about me." In an exclusive sneak peek from Thursday's all-new episode of the tear-inducing NBC drama, Kristina and Adam talk about what Hank's possible »

Parenthood, Season 5, Episode 11, “Promises”
Written by David Hudgins
Directed by Michael Weaver
Airs Thursdays at 10pm Est on NBC
This week, on Parenthood: Max has a bad moment, Julia opens up, and Zeek makes a friend
Parenthood is back this week, opting for only a couple weeks off rather than a more standard month-plus hiatus. With Kristina’s mayoral bid over and done with, the Luncheonette label storyline seemingly forgotten, and Amber taking the week off, “Promises” is able to focus on a couple of the under-represented arcs of the season, as well as the continuing saga of Julia and Joel.
With this episode, Julia’s arc for the season is made clearer- turns out her early moments with David Denham’s Ed were there not to tease a love triangle, but to lead to the current strain on Julia and Joel’s marriage. As soon as Ed is drunk at the auction, »
