The class of 'Clipped': How TBS' new barbershop sitcom won me over

11 June 2015 2:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

You already understand "Clipped." It's a multicamera sitcom set in a Boston barbershop called Buzzy's. There are rowdy characters, thoughtful characters, weird characters. A guy named Buzzy (George Wendt) runs the place. Big accents. Romantic squabbles. Every punctuation mark is a guffaw cue. You get it.  But when I visited the set of TBS' new sitcom created by "Will & Grace" alums Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, I realized there's actually a lot more going on here. While George Wendt insisted -- sheepishly -- that his new character is basically a gay version of Norm from "Cheers" (with no added denotational hand gestures of "gayness"; Wendt says Mutchnick put the kibosh on his attempts to seem more effeminate), "Clipped" gives Wendt a chance to play den father to young improv-trained talents, a natural fit for the onetime Second City star. Check out the glitzy set where he gets to show off his comic and tonsorial chops. »

10 March 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Sean Kingston just bought some expensive jewelry ... against his will. Let's just say it's a court-ordered purchase. Sean skated off with $226k worth of jewelry from 2008-2013 but never paid a dime ... this according to Avi Da Jeweler who filed a lawsuit against Sean. The singer's rep told us last August ... Sean coughed up more than $300k and had the cashed checks to prove it. If that were so, it should have been easy to win the lawsuit, »

Kanye Wasn't the Only One 'Beaten by a Girl'! 13 Other Times Nicki Minaj Stole the Song

3 March 2015 12:54 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

No one would disagree with Kanye West that the most memorable part of his 2010 song “Monster,” more so than himself or Jay Z or Rick Ross, is Nicki Minaj. The way he said it though...

“The fact that she kicked my ass, on my own song,” Kanye said during a lecture at Oxford University (via The Tab Oxford). “On one of the best albums, the best album -- I’m just saying what the critics said -- of the last 25 years. The best album of the past 25 years that I spent a year and a half making.”

“To come back and deliver my magnum opus of a work, and to be outshined,” he said. “To be beat by a girl, basically.” We guess that’s a compliment. But “beat by a girl,” Kanye? In 2015, Kanye? C’mon, Kanye.
