2 hours ago

Finally, a multi-cam series I can get behind. CBS's new comedy “The McCarthys” is well written and terrifically cast. Star Tyler Ritter is effortless in his delivery and grounds the comedy that can take family bonding to extremes. Comedian, actor and writer Brian Gallivan created the show and has said it's based on his life. It stars Ritter as Ronny McCarthy, an openly gay guidance counselor and square peg in his working class, basketball-obsessed Boston family.

‘Nightcrawler’ Review: Jake Gyllenhaal Astonishes in Extraordinary Thriller

2 hours ago

Dan Gilroy‘s exciting and extraordinary directorial debut denounces the crime porn that passes itself off as local TV news. »
