Watch: Lena Dunham, Chris Pratt Read Mean Tweets on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’

21 November 2014 3:43 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“If you don’t have anything nice to tweet, don’t tweet at all.”

That definitely wasn’t the motto last night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” during the eighth edition of the host’s “Mean Tweets” segment, which asks celebrities to read out Twitter users’ insulting posts about them. Thursday night’s entertaining compilation featured a new batch of celebs, including Britney Spears, Lena Dunham, Chris Pratt and Scott Foley.

After reading the tweet from their phone, celebrities usually stared, looked despondent or laughed as the audience cracked up. Yet some notable reactions from John Stamos and Adam Sandler gave the crowd more to laugh about.

Some of the gems included were:

Ty Burrell looks like Jon Hamm, if Jon Hamm were a crack addict.”

“If an alien landed here and demanded a famous person to eat, I’d drive straight to Adam Sandler’s house with a net.”

Modern Family: Season Six Ratings

20 November 2014 12:37 PM, PST | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Though Modern Family saw a dip in the ratings last season, it's still ABC 's top-rated series. There's essentially no chance that it will be cancelled but, will the ratings continue to slide this year? Stay tuned.

Modern Family revolves around three Los Angeles families who are interrelated through Jay Pritchett and his two adult children. The ensemble cast is Ed O'Neill, Sofía Vergara, Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Eric Stonestreet, Sarah Hyland, Ariel Winter, Nolan Gould, Rico Rodriguez, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons, and Pierce Wallace.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- usually the next day, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.

The Skeleton Twins review: Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader are suicidal siblings

4 November 2014 2:15 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Craig Johnson; Screenwriters: Craig Johnson, Mark Heyman; Starring: Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Luke Wilson, Ty Burrell; Running time: 93 mins; Certificate: 15

Opening a film with an attempted suicide is always a risk (the action can go downhill very quickly from there), and The Skeleton Twins features double the trouble. Mercifully, as the titular siblings, Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader manage to keep a sense of humour while, separately, they contemplate ending it all - and it's the strong bond between them that keeps this indie comedy drama from flat-lining. Unlikely as it seems, these sad sacks make for good company.

Having both graduated from Us sketch show Saturday Night Live, it's perhaps not surprising that Wiig and Hader should be on the same wavelength and that pays dividends, but just as important is their lightness of touch with emotional scenes.

Is it okay to approach a celebrity out in public? And how obligated should one feel to keep multitaskers up to speed as to what's happening on screen? Dalton Ross, EW editor-at-large and resident pop-culture referee, weighs in. I've seen celebs in stores. I just smile and nod, maybe say hello. I don't want to bother them. Is it ever okay to begin a convo? —Sue (@Soozey42) Your instincts are generally spot-on, Sue. Here's the thing about actors: They like attention. By the nature of their profession, they got into the business to be noticed and have accolades thrown their way. »

Best of Late Night TV: Bill Murray's Tinder Talk, John Leguizamo's Fight With Patrick Swayze (Video)

22 October 2014 12:30 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.

Jimmy Fallon, David Letterman and Seth Meyers are still on vacation with repeats, but don't worry: Bill Murray and Tenacious D were around to save Tuesday night.

Bill Murray was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" -- and you have to pay close attention to his amazing shirt with what looks like divers on it. His outfit is just everything. Jimmy shared all the great parenting advice Bill gave him before Jk and his wife welcomed their child. "I don't know much," Bill said, "but I talk a lot about what I do know." That's how it should be. He has six boys, so he should know. He shared a good »

Movie Review: The Skeleton Twins

29 September 2014 11:57 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

It seems that every year, one or two independent films successfully make the jump from film festivals and art house theaters to the multiplexes. This year, that movie is writer and director Craig Johnson’s The Skeleton Twins. Starring Saturday Night Live alums Bill Hader and Kristen Wiig as estranged twins that come together after a botched suicide attempt, The Skeleton Twins provides audiences with a sometimes heartbreaking, but ultimately life-affirming look at the meanings of family and friendship.

The movie opens with a brief prologue flashback sequence of young Milo and Maggie as they prepare for Halloween. After the brief set up showing their previous relationship, we flash to present day where Milo (Bill Hader) is visibly drunk and preparing to kill himself. On the other side of the country, Maggie (Kristen Wiig) is on the same wavelength, instead choosing pills over Milo’s booze, drowning, and slit wrist combo. »

The Skeleton Twins Review

25 September 2014 10:35 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In a movie packed to the gills with mission statement moments, the scene that best encapsulates The Skeleton Twins is one of its more ridiculous ones. Suburban New Yorker Maggie, in the midst of the worst day of her life, discovers that the new goldfish she’s just bought have gone belly-up. She throws the guppies into an aquarium with two inches of water, and tries to resuscitate them with desperate swirling and whacks of a wooden spoon. A teary-eyed, manic, and wasted effort, Maggie’s attempt to save a dead fish too closely parallels the viewer’s feeling of watching good people do all they can to save the terminal project that is The Skeleton Twins.

Kristen Wiig stars as Maggie, a married dental hygienist introduced in her bathroom, a cellphone in one hand, and a prescription’s worth of sleeping pills in the other. At the same time, »
