Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian Gifted Fried Chicken Cakes From Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, Find Snow in Calabasas

24 December 2016 1:45 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Leave it to Chrissy Teigen to gift her friends with fried chicken.

The Cravings author and her husband, John Legend, sent the Kardashian sisters a very unique gift: a caked made of fried chicken and mashed potatoes. (The model is a longtime friend of the reality stars -- Kim Kardashian even threw Chrissy a baby shower earlier this year.)

Exclusive: Chrissy Teigen Opens Up About Kim Kardashian Post-Robbery

Kourtney Kardashian's daughter, Penelope, may have been the most excited recipient, gleefully running through the items in the dessert-like object as her mom took videos on Friday.

"And we like the cake and we like the chicken... [and] yams," the 4-year-old rattled off, as her mom also reminded her that there was also mac and cheese in the concoction.

Khloe Kardashian also received a cake, though she jokingly scolded her friends for the gift, saying they know she's trying to lose weight.

Have Yourself A Movie Little Christmas: 2016 Edition

19 December 2016 4:56 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

I’m guessing that you, just like most of us, have always had seasonal favorites when it comes to movies that attempt to address and evoke the spirit of Christmas. Like most from my generation, when I was a kid I learned the pleasures of perennial anticipation of Christmastime as interpreted by TV through a series of holiday specials, like How the Grinch Stole Christmas, A Charlie Brown Christmas, Santa Claus is Coming to Town and even musical variety hours where the likes of Bing Crosby and Andy Williams and Dean Martin et al would sit around sets elaborately designed to represent the ideal Christmas-decorated living room, drinking “wassail” (I’m sure that’s what was in those cups) and crooning classics of the season alongside a dazzling array of guests. (We knew we were moving into a new world of holiday cheer when David Bowie joined Bing Crosby for »

TV Ratings: Cowboys-Vikings Puts Up Big ‘Thursday Night Football’ Numbers

2 December 2016 8:51 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Updated: Somewhere in an underground bunker, a team of scientists funded by the NFL and its media partners is likely attempting to find a way to clone the Dallas Cowboys so they can play in every primetime NFL game.

Thursday’s Cowboys-Vikings nailbiter, which aired on NBC and the NFL Network, drew a huge audience of 21.8 million viewers and a 12.8 household rating, making it the NFL’s most-watched Thursday night game. In earlier results, the game brought in a 14.1 household rating in Nielsen’s metered market overnights — the second-best overnight rating for a “Thursday Night Football” game. Thursday’s Cowboys win was a massive improvement over the overnights for the rest of this season’s “Tnf” slate, which is averaging an 8.8 household rating when airing on a broadcast network and NFL Network.

(As a reminder, two of this season’s Thursday games — the season opener on Sept. 9 and the Thanksgiving night game last week — were technically part »

‘Stranger Things’ Mashup Makes ‘Charlie Brown Christmas’ Even Weirder (Video)

1 December 2016 5:00 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Charles M. Schulz’s world of Peanuts was always a little odd, with a flying doghouse piloted by a beagle, but it’s now gotten even weirder thanks to Netflix hit “Stranger Things.” In a three-minute animated short created by Leigh Lahav and Oren Mendez, “A Stranger Things Christmas” combines the streaming horror series with the Peanuts gang to create what could become a new holiday classic. Patterned after “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” the short follows Will Byers, who returns home from the upside down but can’t seem to shake off that traumatic experience. Also Read: 'Stranger Things »
