Two-Time Oscar Winner Cooper on TCM: Pro-War 'York' and Eastwood-Narrated Doc

Gary Cooper movies on TCM: Cooper at his best and at his weakest Gary Cooper is Turner Classic Movies' “Summer Under the Stars” star today, Aug. 30, '15. Unfortunately, TCM isn't showing any Cooper movie premiere – despite the fact that most of his Paramount movies of the '20s and '30s remain unavailable. This evening's features are Mr. Deeds Goes to Town (1936), Sergeant York (1941), and Love in the Afternoon (1957). Mr. Deeds Goes to Town solidified Gary Cooper's stardom and helped to make Jean Arthur Columbia's top female star. The film is a tad overlong and, like every Frank Capra movie, it's also highly sentimental.

Ant & Dec have revealed that they are in early talks about taking their hit ITV entertainment show Saturday Night Takeaway to the Us.

Ant & Dec previously attempted to break America in 2009 when they launched the gameshow Wanna Bet? on ABC. However, the show was cancelled after six episodes due to poor ratings.

Speaking about a possible return to the Us with Takeaway, Dec told Daybreak: "There's murmurings and there's talk about [the Us] and obviously it's done so well here. There's only two left of the current run here,

'Cougar Town': The Smartest Run Show On TV
For the past month "Cougar Town" co-creator and executive producer Bill Lawrence has been waging a social media campaign to promote his ABC comedy, with little help from the network.

But it's been a bit of an upward battle. "Cougar Town" was completely left off ABC's fall schedule, had its episode order cut to 15 from 22 and only recently received a premiere date after the heavily maligned midseason comedy “Work It" was cancelled.

"The show was getting jerked around by ABC, and we knew that in the modern era of television, promoting your show is not only the network's job, but it's your job as a showrunner," Lawrence told HuffPost TV. "So we sat there, in the writers room, and decided as a cast, that if this show ended up going away after this year, we would all regret it if we didn't try our best. No one had ever tried this,
