‘black-ish’ Star Tracee Ellis Ross Has the Perfect Guest Role for Kanye West

30 March 2015 11:25 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Exposure is like crack to Kanye West, which is why he should have no problem adding an appearance on ABC’s hit show black-ish to his schedule. And black-ish star and former Yeezy collaborator, Tracee Ellis Ross, is ready for his cameo.

On Big Morning Buzz Live, Ross told us about her history with West: she famously appeared in his “Touch the Sky” music video and used to be his neighbor. Believe it or not, she says Kanye has a great sense of humor. “He obviously does because he knows how to pick me!” she joked. When asked if Kanye would make a good guest star on black-ish, Ross did one better and thought up a character on the spot. “Maybe he’s one of my patients. Or maybe he’s one of the doctors at the hospital.” And with that, the hashtag #KanyeDoctorOnBlackish was born.

“Kanye, did you hear that? »

This Week in TV News: ‘The Walking Dead’ spinoff gets picked up for at least two seasons

14 March 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This Week in TV News is a compliment to the Week in Review feature, which will now be focused on film news. 

AMC has guaranteed two seasons to the prequel companion series of The Walking Dead, as per THR. The announcement was made earlier this week, and comes as somewhat unsurprising news. The Walking Dead continues to be one of the channel’s highest rated shows, with its popularity showing no signs of waning as the show’s fifth season rolls along. In addition, AMC has found similar commercial and critical success with Better Call Saul, its new series that is itself a spinoff of Breaking Bad.

There’s no set title for the series as of yet, and working titles have included Fear The Walking Dead and Cobalt. The first season, much like the show that spawned this spinoff, will consist of six episodes, with creator Robert Kirkman working »

Black Is the New Black: ‘Empire,’ ‘Black-ish’ Success Puts Diversity on TV’s Must-Have List

24 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

For years, conventional wisdom in the television industry dictated that having more than one minority-driven show was risky business. But this year, it could be said that black is the new black. The television landscape is going through a sea change, ignited by viewers’ evolving tastes, the nation’s shifting demographics, advertisers’ designs on an ever-growing minority population and something called “Black Twitter.” “America is basically a layered cake of a lot of different people,” ABC’s “black-ish” creator Kenya Barris told TheWrap. “People want to see themselves reflected in the entertainment world.” See video: ‘Black-ish’ Star Tracee Ellis Ross Talks Mom Diana Ross, »

It’s time you meet your new favorite actress, How To Get Away with Murder star Aja Naomi King. You’ll get along great because she loves Shonda Rhimes, Beyoncé, and Empire‘s Cookie Lyon as much as you do.

VH1 caught up with the up-and-coming star, who dished on the behind-the-scenes action of Murder (Shonda!) and how she feels about diversity being at the forefront of TV’s current lineup. Did we mention she supports Fifty Shades of Grey? Yes, she rocks.

It’s kind of sad, we’ve had so much fun shooting it and spending all this time together. I don’t want it to end, I enjoy people watching it and telling me what they think about it.

What has been your favorite scene to shoot so far?

Best of Late Night TV: Dakota Johnson Plays 'Anything Can Be Sexy,' Mickey Rourke Shushed Anna Faris' Baby (Video)

10 February 2015 11:00 PM, PST | 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.

Dakota Johnson was on "The Tonight Show" Tuesday night, the day after her "Fifty Shades of Grey" co-star Jamie Dornan. He did "Fifty Accents of Grey" yesterday, and she followed with "Anything Can Be Sexy." Dakota and Jimmy Fallon took turns reading unsexy things, and it was up to them to make them sound sexy. The little winks did not help. To be fair, though, it is hard to make Jar Jar Binks, fanny packs, and Red Lobster sound sexy. Dakota is a third-generation "Tonight Show" guest. Her mom, Melanie Griffith was on the show, and Melanie's mother, Tippi Hedren (of "The Birds," "Marnie") was also on the show. »
