The Best Holiday TV Episodes of the 21st Century, Ranked
Holiday episodes are rarely a show’s best, but they’re often the most enduring. CBS still airs a colorized version of the “I Love Lucy” Christmas episode, repackaged as a perennial special, 60 years later. The image of The Fonz eating out of a can, alone on Christmas Eve, is probably one of the best-remembered scenes from “Happy Days.” And “The West Wing’s” 1999 episode “In Excelsis Deo” not only won an Emmy, but its takes on homeless veterans and hate crimes are just as relevant today, nearly two decades later. And of course, it was a Christmas episode that launched the longest-running scripted series in primetime, “The Simpsons,” all the way back in 1989.

As the networks more wholeheartedly embrace the holidays as a marketing tool, there has been an explosion in Christmas-themed movies and specials in recent years. But there’s still something special about celebrating the holidays with

So long, Dennis Reynolds – you might just be TV's greatest monster

If it’s true that Glenn Howerton’s character in It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia is off, we’ll be deprived of some chilling onscreen psychopathy. Perhaps his morally bankrupt worldview was just a little too close to reality

Dennis Reynolds exited the last series of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia on an uncharacteristically tender note. Having discovered that he had fathered a child, Dennis (played by Glenn Howerton) said goodbye to his awful friends and left the city in a newfound quest for maturity. And now it looks as if that’s how things are going to stay.

A recent Vulture festival panel hinted at a Dennisless future for It’s Always Sunny. Now that Howerton has a role in next year’s splashier AP Bio, it’s likely that he will be a bit-player at best. In response to a question about his future, Howerton answered with an ambiguous: “Eh,

18 Actors Who Were Almost Marvel's Star-Lord

18 Actors Who Were Almost Marvel's Star-Lord
Guardians of the Galaxy was considered a risky proposition for Marvel Studios, even after the runaway success of their cinematic universe building films like Iron Man and The Avengers. These characters hang around in outer space! There are aliens on the team! There's a talking raccoon! So it was nothing short of incredible when Guardians of the Galaxy earned nearly $800 million and a 91% on Rotten Tomatoes. A big part of James Gunn's action-comedy masterpiece depends upon the charisma of Chris Pratt, who leads the team as Peter Quill, the film's relatable half-earthling who rocks badass tunes in his headphones while kicking ass as Star-Lord. But it almost didn't happen that way. As there were plenty of other big names vying for the coveted role.

It may seem crazy to think about now, but at the time, Pratt was mostly known as lovable doofus and Mouse Rat frontman Andy Dwyer on NBC's Parks and Recreation.

Five years and two networks later, “The Mindy Project” is saying goodbye with a sixth and final season this September.

When we first met her, she wanted it all. She wanted a fairy tale wedding and whatnot,” series co-star, writer, and producer Ike Barinholtz tells Variety. But now, Mindy is “realizing that maybe she doesn’t really want that.”

Ahead of its final season premiere, Barinholtz talks with Variety about Mindy’s love life, his favorite guest stars, and how the creative team plans to wrap up the series.

Where do we pick up when the sixth season starts?
