It will be far from silent in the Library on The Librarians Season 4

The Librarians return to TNT tonight with a fourth season of madcap fantasy adventures. The series was spun off from the hugely successful Librarian movies, which starred Noah Wyle as Flynn Carson heading up a team of librarians whose job it is to track down artifacts that could pose a threat to humanity if they wind up in the wrong hands. The first three seasons had a pretty strong arc running through the various adventures. The first season had a somewhat Arthurian theme to it, which is a theme that the series has retained somewhat due to Jenkins (John Larroquette)...read more

Hilary Duff Gets New Ink in a Tribute to Bette Davis and the City of Angels
Hilary Duff has added a new design to her extensive tattoo collection.

The Younger star’s new tattoo was created by celebrity tattoo artist Dr. Woo, who shared the photo on his Instagram on Thursday.

The design, a tribute to film and TV actress Bette Davis, was in a simple, elegant script which read “Take Fountain.”

Davis famously uttered the line when Johnny Carson asked her for the best way an actress starting out could get into Hollywood, and, not missing a beat, she replied, “Take Fountain!”

The advice is useful to those stuck in Los Angeles traffic, as Fountain Avenue is in Hollywood,

‘There’s Johnny’ Star Ian Nelson on Hollywood Sexism: No Denying ‘Women Are Treated Differently’

  • The Wrap
Hulu’s new comedy “There’s Johnny” revolves around the behind-the-scenes world of late night television, as witnessed by wide-eyed Hollywood newbie Andy Klavin, played by Ian Nelson. One of the most prominent themes of the show is how abysmally women are treated in the workplace. One character in particular, Joy (Jane Levy), receives the brunt of innuendos and crude jokes from male executives and writers on Johnny Carson’s show, though it’s clear: The nightly broadcast wouldn’t go on without her. There’s no denying it, Nelson told TheWrap in a recent interview: “Women are treated differently than men in the workplace.

'DWTS' Champ Jordan Fisher Dishes on His Biggest Takeaway, Where He's Going to Put the Mirrorball (Exclusive)

'DWTS' Champ Jordan Fisher Dishes on His Biggest Takeaway, Where He's Going to Put the Mirrorball (Exclusive)
Jordan Fisher is walking away from Dancing With the Stars with a lot more than just a Mirrorball trophy -- he's also coming away with a best friend in partner Lindsay Arnold.

The newly-crowned season 25 champions stopped to talk with Et's Cameron Mathison after their big win, and the Hamilton star dished on what it was like dancing side-by-side with the pro for the last 10 weeks.

"Being able to put in the time and the work and the energy and be rewarded for that at the end is unbelievable and the Mirrorball is amazing! Obviously. But the thing that I get to take away from it is the friendship, the relationship, the family that we got to create in this," Fisher, 23, marveled. "And I'm just so honored and so grateful to have her in my life."

Arnold was equally effusive with her praise for her multi-talented partner, who helped her take home her first Mirrorball trophy after six seasons

'Dancing With the Stars' Crowns Season 25 Champion -- See Who Took Home the Mirrorball Trophy!

When the pair first danced the number in Week 3, they got the highest scores of the night with a 27 out of 30. This time around the results were even better, and the couple earned a perfect 30.

For their second dance of the night, the pair performend an epic cha-cha/tango fusion set to "Hot2Touch"by Felix Jaehn that earned them another 30 out of 30.

'DWTS' Competition Tightens After Long-Awaited Elimination in Night One of Season 25 Finals
*Caution: Spoilers ahead!*

The two-night Dancing With the Stars finale kicked off on Monday with a slew of amazing redemption dances, freestyle routines and emotional performances.

However, only three couples can compete in the second night of the season 25 finals, which means fans had to say goodbye to one pair who had fought hard to get to this point in the competition.

At the end of the night, Drew Scott and partner Emma Slater found themselves in jeopardy alongside Frankie Muniz and Witney Carson.

Despite a night of good scores -- and getting the title of "most improved dancer" from judge Len Goodman -- it was finally time to bid farewell to the Property Brothers star.

Scott and Slater joined co-hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews after the elimination and shared some parting words of appreciation.

Marvel’s The Punisher Season 1 Episode 2 Review – ‘Two Dead Men’

Liam Hoofe reviews the second episode of Marvel’s The Punisher

The first season of Marvel’s The Punisher dropped yesterday and the first episode got things going with a bang. The show instantly established Frank Castle’s life post Daredevil and also laid out the blueprint for the show thematically for the coming season.

While the first episode introduced us to several characters, a lot of those, it would appear were disposable, ‘Two Dead Men’ introduces what we can safely assume to be some of the season’s key characters, and it does so in an efficient, and highly enjoyable fashion.

The biggest focus this episode is on David Lieberman, also known as ‘Micro’. Micro was the character who we saw watching Frank at the end of the last episode and his intentions towards Frank are still not fully clear by the time the credits roll in this one either.

‘Better Things’ Review: Pamela Adlon’s Finale is an Endless Gift for Endlessly Giving Mothers

‘Better Things’ Review: Pamela Adlon’s Finale is an Endless Gift for Endlessly Giving Mothers
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for the “Better Things” Season 2 finale, Episode 10, “Graduation.”]

Even professional writers have their limit, and mine arrived the moment Max (Mikey Madison) lifted her blindfold and saw her mother, Sam (Pamela Adlon), sisters Frankie (Hannah Alligood) and Duke (Olivia Edward), and grandmother, Phil (Celia Imrie), dressed all in black, standing on a shiny black stage, about to recreate Christine and the Queens’ “Tilted” music video as a graduation present for the family’s eldest daughter.

How do you expand upon something so perfect?

Up until that point, plenty of beautiful moments had stacked up over the course of Adlon’s Season 2 finale, “Graduation.” There was the cohesion between the premiere and the finale. The first episode of Season 2, “September,” finds Sam dealing with Max’s very adult new boyfriend. She’s put in an impossible position: Flip out, demand they break up, and forbid Max from seeing him, or do what she chooses to do: privately fume, keep her daughter close,

Could the next Johnny Carson be a comedian from West Orange, New Jersey with two Morrissey tattoos? "I know that's an unrealistic goal," Chris Gethard tells Rolling Stone with a bemused smile. "Is it gonna happen? Probably not. But why not try to take over, see what happens?"

Gethard, 37, is the creator and host of The Chris Gethard Show (Tcgs). "It's a show named after a guy and that guy's not in control," he says on the talkshow's zany, clubhouse-like set. Rolling Stone followed the comedian for a week leading

Sarah Silverman Wrestles with Louis C.K.’s Harassment: ‘Can You Love Someone Who Did Bad Things?’
Sarah Silverman opened Thursday’s new episode of “I Love You, America” with a heartfelt and emotional monologue about the current outpouring of sexual harassment and assault allegations dominating the news cycle. And she didn’t shy away from “the elephant masturbating in the room” — Louis C.K.

While Silverman described C.K. as “one of my best friends of over 25 years,” she also didn’t pull her punches in acknowledging that he “masturbated in front of women. He wielded his power with women in fucked-up ways, sometimes to the point where they left comedy entirely.”

Silverman appeared in multiple episodes of “Louie” during its FX run and, as stated above, has a close friendship with him. But in the context of “I Love You, America,” her choice to address the issue was grounded in a statement she made previously in the show’s run: “If it’s mentionable, it’s manageable.

Search Party” ended its first season in a completely unexpected spot. The group set up to be saviors — or at least the only people who cared about Chantal, a young New Yorker gone missing — turned out to be killers. No, they didn’t off the woman they spent the whole season looking for, but Dory (Alia Shawkat), Drew (John Reynolds), Elliott (John Early), and Portia (Meredith Hagner) nevertheless found themselves on the run after murdering someone else during the investigation.

‘There’s…Johnny!’ Review: Hulu’s Carson-Era ‘Tonight Show’ Dramedy Is a Sweet ’70s Fairy Tale

‘There’s…Johnny!’ Review: Hulu’s Carson-Era ‘Tonight Show’ Dramedy Is a Sweet ’70s Fairy Tale
As far as audience surrogates go, you can’t get any better or time-tested than a wide-eyed optimist thrust into the middle of a culture shock. “There’s…Johnny!” protagonist Andy Klavin (Ian Nelson) ticks all those boxes, becoming a gateway to the backstage world at the Johnny Carson-hosted “Tonight Show” in Hulu’s new seven-part comedy series. But there’s a distinct style and approach to the show around Andy that elevates this from a comedy curiosity or a wistful passion project to something worth immersing in.

Rather than re-creating faint replications of antics from the time when Carson ruled late night, “There’s…Johnny!” (originally produced for Seeso, before that comedy service shut down) uses actual archival footage from the show, even incorporating memorable moments as significant plot points for the characters just off-camera. Johnny, Ed McMahon, and even a few notable guest stars pop up on

‘The Mindy Project’ Finale Proves Mindy Kaling Is Ready for Her ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ Gig

‘The Mindy Project’ Finale Proves Mindy Kaling Is Ready for Her ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ Gig
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “The Mindy Project” series finale, “It Had to Be You.”]

The Mindy Project” came to an end on Tuesday with its series finale, and every major character finds love or fulfillment in some form. Everything comes full circle with Dr. Mindy Lahiri (creator and star Mindy Kaling) fleeing from a wedding on a bicycle while wearing a sequined dress. But what a difference six seasons and countless boyfriends make. In the pilot, Mindy’s bike escape is sparked by going on a drunken rant at her ex’s wedding. In the finale, she’s peddling away from her good friend’s wedding into the arms of the man she loves.

Over the course of five years and two networks, Kaling refined her romantic comedy style, which ranged from irreverent and goofy to idealistic and contemplative. It hasn’t always been the most consistent, though, and season-to-season has ranged wildly in tone and execution. This was partially due to the network switch,
