Go Girl! Loretta Lynch Was Just Sworn in as the First African-American Female Attorney General

1 hour ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

We've got ourselves a new attorney general, and this time the appointment is a game-changer. Loretta Lynch was sworn in this morning by Vice President Joe Biden as the country's 83rd attorney general—oh, and she also happens to be the first African-American woman to hold the position. And, she's only the second female Ag after Janet Reno, who served from 1993 to 2001. Reno's historic appointment was followed by almost 14 years of more men in the top judicial spot, but that all changed today. Lynch's journey to her current job has been quite impressive. According to an NPR profile, she was born in North Carolina during an era of strong civil unrest, was named the valedictorian of her »

23 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Donald Trump, a big target of President Obama at the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, got off light on Saturday night. But few other Republican or Democratic presidential candidates escaped the President’s wrath. Even Vice President Joe Biden took a few hits at the annual gathering, which celebrates excellence in reporting on the White House and raises money for scholarships. In a shot at Biden’s habit of invading others’ personal space, Obama joked that he loves the VP’s back massages. “Those Joe Biden shoulder massages are like magic. You should try one.” “Oh, you have?” Here are nine of the President’s. »

20 March 2015 2:40 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

To the world, Muhammad Ali is the Greatest. But the veteran boxer gave that nickname to two very surprising people - Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. When the royal couple visited his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, on Friday, they were given a welcome letter by the sporting legend. "As you travel back to your homeland, we hope you know how much this city respects and admires the many contributions you have made in the world," he wrote. "We think you are the greatest." Amid the fun (and dancing) during the three-day visit, the prince, 66, has been »

Prince Charles Thinking of Royal Baby No. 2 During U.S. Visit: "Oh, Yes," I'm Excited to Be a Grandfather Again!

19 March 2015 10:07 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla's United States' visit has been brief, but it's certainly been busy! The royals have been all over Washington, D.C., checking out the city's historic monuments, and they're planning to drop by the Oval Office this afternoon for a visit with Barack Obama and Joe Biden. America is pulling out all the stops for Charles and Camilla, yet understandably, they're a bit preoccupied with some upcoming happenings going on across the pond... That means, of course, the birth of Kate Middleton and Prince William's second child, which Prince George's mum revealed yesterday is expected to happen sometime between the "mid-to-end" of April.

Best of Late Night TV: Leprechaun Will Ferrell Sings 'Danny Boy,' Jennifer Garner Gets Pie Smashed in Face (Video)

18 March 2015 12:20 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.

It was St. Patrick's Day Tuesday night, so the late night talk shows celebrated. There was a lot of good stuff going on, related to the holiday or not. Jimmy Kimmel got drunk and slurred his words on air while doing squats with Julia Louis-Dreyfus on his back, but wait a minute on that. Seriously, though, it was that kind of night overall.

Will Ferrell was on David Letterman's show - dressed as a leprechaun - and sang his own version of "Danny Boy," focused around snakes. It was very emotional, and left Dave in tears. Will was very serious about St. Patrick's Day and the dangers of snake attacks. »

Jim Rash and Danny Pudi Want a ‘Community’ Movie with A Lot of Paintball

17 March 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Community has been resurrected from the dead for season six by Yahoo!, which means its goal of #sixseasonsandamovie is thisclose to actually happening. At the sitcom’s press day, cast members Jim Rash, Danny Pudi, and Gillian Jacobs all gave their thoughts on what that feature film should look like.

Pudi, who plays the show’s resident pop culture junkie, and Rash, famous for his role as the inept Dean Pelton, both called for a paintball episode (which made its debut in season one’s “Modern Warfare,” and had two season-two sequels, “A Fistful of Paintballs” and “For a Few Paintballs More”) blown to epic proportions. “[Paintball] is the biggest thing we’ve done and it has the most movie ‘stuff,’” said Rash. “If that day comes, and we’re at a place where we want to cap off the whole thing, it would be good to put that on grand scale. »

It’s Handled: Kerry Washington Is Playing Anita Hill

12 March 2015 1:36 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Kerry Washington's staying in D.C. (or at least a set designed to look like D.C.) during her Scandal hiatus: THR today reports that Washington will star as Anita Hill in Confirmation, an HBO movie about Clarence Thomas's Supreme Court nomination hearings, which became highly publicized when Hill testified he had sexually harassed her. Washington will also produce, alongside Erin Brockovich's Susannah Grant. The rest of the cast has yet to be announced, but we'd kill to be in the room during the auditions to play a younger Joe Biden. »

Outrage Watch: Not everyone loves 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt'

10 March 2015 1:17 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to the March 10, 2015 edition of Outrage Watch, HitFix's (almost) daily rundown of all the things folks are peeved about in entertainment. Today's top story: "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" has a race problem. Though reaction to the Netflix comedy has been almost universally positive, Vulture writer Libby Hill has a major problem with the subplot involving Jane Krakowski's character, revealed to be a Native American who wears color contacts and dyes her hair blonde in order to pass for white. "This specific backstory is most frustrating because it doesn’t serve a purpose, either narratively or comedically," Hill writes. "There must be more compelling (and funnier!) ways to give Jacqueline a backstory that don’t require sloppily marginalizing a group of people who are already as marginalized as you can get." Some folks apparently aren't too happy with the depiction of Ki Hong Lee's character either. [Vulture] Want more? There's »

'They Alive, Damnit!': How the Unbelievably Catchy 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' Theme Song Came To Be

9 March 2015 1:11 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Review: 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt' Takes The Charms of '30 Rock' To a Darker Place on Netflix If you did any bingeing of Netflix's new Tina Fey-created comedy this weekend, you might have found yourself especially struck by the show's addictive theme song. A blend of gospel passion and a bystander's commentary on watching Kimmy and her fellow Mole Women emerge from the bunker they'd been trapped inside, it's a perfect encapsulation of the show's premise and tone. As Indiewire's Ben Travers put it: And here's why you can't escape it -- it got some help from people who became famous for making music designed to catch fire and spread globally: Viral video pioneers, the Gregory Brothers.  Debuting originally in 2009 as a YouTube channel called Auto-Tune the News, the musical brothers (and sister-in-law) developed a knack for combining pre-existing footage with music, using auto-tune to make everyone from »

'Parks and Rec' Series Finale: 7 Moments So Perfect They Made Us Cry

24 February 2015 10:00 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Cue up the emotional GIFs, the Parks and Recreation series finale was an emotional roller coaster of big laughs, big guest stars and even bigger heart-twistingly nostalgic moments.

NBC

As the Parks crew tackled one last menial mission, fixing a broken swing, we flashed forward to their future lives. Some were pure comedy gold (Jean-Ralphio faking his own death and Craig as a still-manic old man), but mostly this nostalgic trip to the future just made us wish we had seven more seasons with our favorite Pawnee residents.

"When we worked here together, we fought, scratched and clawed to make peoples’ lives a tiny bit better," Leslie told her team in the finale. "What makes work worth doing is getting to do it with people that you love."

TV Review: ‘Parks and Recreation’ Ends on a High Note (Spoilers)

24 February 2015 8:01 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Parks and Recreation” always made the fine art of creating great television comedy look easy. For seven seasons the NBC series set an impossibly high benchmark, and now leaves the air without any true peer on network TV.

That it never attracted a massive audience or garnered the industry kudos it deserved doesn’t really matter. The show always took its narrative cues from the big-hearted optimist at its center, can-do civil servant Leslie Knope (brought to life by the indomitable Amy Poehler).

With a bona fide warmth that ran contrary to the trend of ironic small-screen comedies, “Parks” thrived as an eternal underdog. A series not just to watch for laughs, but to champion and love. (And in the age of social media, ideal fodder to tweet, like, Gif and meme with everyone else in the know.)

Permanent existence on the renewal bubble is probably the exact reason why »

Parks and Recreation's 7 Best Recurring Gags: From Calzones to 'Treat Yo' Self'

24 February 2015 12:40 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

After seven brilliant seasons, Parks and Recreation airs its final episode on Tuesday night. Though often overlooked despite its longevity and critical acclaim, the writers - with showrunner Mike Schur at the helm - created a rich universe filled with well-rounded characters whose quirks were celebrated often in the form of joke callbacks that were as hilarious on the second, third and 10th time they were told as they were the first. In advance of the series finale, we thought we'd revisit seven of the best recurring jokes on Parks.Literally Chris Traeger (Rob Lowe) was Lih-truh-lee the most enthusiastic person in Pawnee. »
