Dolly Parton knows how to bring out the love. The music legend's Pure & Simple concert stop last night at the Hollywood Bowl included an audience full of celebrity couples. Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons arrived to their seats hand-in-hand. The two danced, sang and snuck in a few kisses while Parton sang "Islands in the Stream." Kylie Minogue did the same a few seats away with her fiance Joshua Sasse. Elizabeth Banks, who attended with her husband Max Handelman, tweeted, "At the @DollyParton show @ the Hollywood Bowl. My #1 idol since I was a little girl. #truetalent #legend." We also spotted Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos chatting before the concert began with Happy Days »
Kelly Ripa has had quite a year. She and Mark Consuelos celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary. Their eldest child, son Michael, went off to college. Ripa won yet another Daytime Emmy. And today, she celebrates her 46th birthday. Oh yeah, and she helped turn the morning-show landscape on its head by drawing attention to the fact that, to this day, women—even the most powerful ones in media—still tend to make a lot of people uncomfortable when they stand their ground and speak their minds. Was that this year? Because the Michael Strahan days—few though they were compared to some morning show runs—already seem like a TV-lifetime »
Put her in coach, she’s ready to play… or is she?
Ginny Baker, Major League Baseball’s first female player — and the character at the center of Fox’s new drama Pitch — has been waiting her entire life for a shot at the big show. But is she successful on the mound? We’ll get to that in a moment. First, a brief recap of Thursday’s series premiere:
If only a show could believe in the shtick it has, and not decide that it not only needs two, but needs one to be a clever twist. Pitch has enough going on without throwing out a last-minute zinger. Worse, the show doesn’t need it, it doesn’t help anything, and it runs the risk of leaving a bad taste in your mouth. I’m tempted to tell you the point at which you should stop watching, and await the next episode.
As I said, Pitch has enough going on, and somewhat surprisingly, what with the overblown cliches that are tricky to avoid, it’s a refreshing joyride. It may seem like damning with faint praise, but the show’s best attribute is just that it adeptly dodges turning into something laughable. That isn’t because it’s doing anything wrong, but because the subject matter simply means that »

Fox is about to debut a new drama about the first female athlete to play in Major League Baseball. Pitch stars Kylie Bunbury, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Ali Larter, Mark Consuelos, Dan Lauria, Mo McRae, Meagan Holder and Tim Jo.
According to Fox, "Ginny is vaulted into instant fame when she's called up by the San Diego Padres to make her Major League debut. Like any rookie, Ginny must prove herself to her teammates. Foremost among them is Mike Lawson, the team's ruggedly handsome star catcher. There's instant chemistry between them, although neither dares admit it. After all, Mike is captain of the team and a few of his players don't even want Ginny on the field. One of the players watching Ginny's back is center fielder Blip Sanders, an old friend from the minor leagues. Guiding her is her agent/confidante Amelia Slater. Amelia saw Ginny's star potential early on and »

Once upon a time, conventional wisdom in TV suggested that any shows debuting outside of the fall were in some way lesser than the ones launching in September and October. Thanks to cable, streaming, and even a transformation of the way the broadcast networks schedule things, the roles have almost entirely reversed: now the really special stuff gets saved for January or later, while a lot of what's scheduled for a more traditional launch can be viewed as cannon fodder. This TV season, for instance, Fox is saving its revivals of 24 and Prison Break for 2017, and the CW is doing the same with its highest-profile new series, Riverdale. But there's still a lot of promising stuff coming this fall across broadcast, cable, and streaming — not just the welcome return of shows like Rectify, You're the Worst, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but a far more exciting batch of new series than were »
