1 Reason Laugh and Let ‘Loose’ Over Bad Casting Notices

21 October 2014 12:21 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

We’ve all seen the casting notices written with complete disregard to cardinal rules like using proper grammar, steering clear of racist, sexist, and misogynistic descriptions, and y’know, actually letting people know what you’re specifically looking for in an actor. If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to see those notices acted out on stage, now’s your chance. Based on the tumblr page “Cast and Loose,” an online showcase of some of the most absurd casting notices out there, “Cast and Loose Live!” presents “Back To School Night” at Joe’s Pub in New York City for a one-night, Oct. 27 performance. The satirical show will bring to life gems like, “Seeking 20s/30s - An Asian woman who doesn’t have the hard features of most other Asian females - she is more elegant and sophisticated and knows it.” The production starring Lauren Blumenfeld »

Barbara Walters is coming out of retirement for 'The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014'

21 October 2014 9:36 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Barbara Walters is coming out of retirement for "The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014” Walters said she was done with the franchise after the 2013 edition. But ABC announced this morning that "Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2014” will return Sunday, Dec. 14 at 9 pm. Why hasn’t any new fall show been canceled yet? It’s unusual to have zero cancelations one month into the season. But this is an unusual season, and EW reports that one of the factors in the lack of cancelations is the lack of confidence in the midseason replacement shows. Plus: It’s hard to figure out what a hit is nowadays. Pop network orders its 1st scripted series: “Schitt’s Creek” with Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara The current TV Guide Network will transform into Pop, with a comedy about a rich family that loses it all in a Ponzi scheme and ends up living in a motel. »

Sesame Street has added yet another guest star to its collection! Actress Claire Danes appeared on the show to teach viewers the word of the day. The three-minute video starts with Claire and Cookie Monster. The Homeland actor opens by telling viewers they will be learning a new word. Cookie Monster, naturally, assumes the word will be his favorite word: cookie! Danes responds to the animated character by saying, "No, Cookie Monster, we're not here to talk about cookies, but we are here to tell everyone the word of the day." Cookie Monster assumes she means another cookie-related word, like biscuit or wafer. To his despair, though, the new word is "diagram." "A diagram is a »

We Put Who on the Cover of People?

13 October 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

As we look back on People's 40 fabulous years, we can't help but linger on some of the images that have us saying, "We put who on the cover?" For every Most Beautiful Woman there's a cover of a lingerie-clad Muppet (see Miss Piggy below), and for every George Clooney wedding album there's someone (er, something) like E.T. True, they were big deals at the time - but that doesn't make them any less hilarious now. Here's a look at some of our favorite gems - and yes, they are definitely real: Mork & Mindy's Pam Dawber Sure, Robin Williams went on »

Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day Review

6 October 2014 6:44 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In his bestseller The Tipping Point, author Malcolm Gladwell details how certain cultural entities or social ideas spread through the public consciousness and become big. One of the chapters focuses on “stickiness,” something that makes an element or idea stick with its target audience. In that section, Gladwell refers to two famed television programs aimed at young children: Sesame Street and Blue’s Clues.

While the former is a timeless classic of public broadcasting, the latter was touted for being more efficient with educating children. It has something to do with its “stickiness.” While Sesame Street had short segments and sly pop culture references that confused youngsters, Blue’s Clues focused on a few recurring characters and had pauses to give its target audience the time to absorb the information. Also, the show repeated the same episode several times in a week, giving a young audience the time to learn from experience. »

The educationally minded face of British childrens telly meets its slightly bonkers, all-singing Us cousin in this co-production from CBeebies and the creators of Sesame Street. Elmo has crossed the Atlantic to work with his aunt and uncle at their chaotic hotel, and hes bought Cookie Monster along for the ride. This second episode sees the family work together to stop the latter gobbling up sugary guest Mr Crumb. Aimed at three- to six-year-olds, although older Muppet fans are bound to appreciate this special relationship. Hannah J Davies

Elmo, Cookie Monster visit EW and parody 'True Detective,' 'Sherlock,' 'Scandal'

2 October 2014 11:35 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Sesame Street is now in the midst of its 45th season. By this point, the venerable program has had a positive influence on more children's lives than breakfast. EW was lucky enough to have two of the Street's kingpins—Cookie Monster and Elmo—drop by our studio and, just for fun, enact their own versions of shows like Sherlock, True Detective, Scandal, and House of Cards. And they couldn't have been nicer. (That is, once we made sure the dressing room had the requisite number of fresh-baked cookies specified in a certain someone's contract rider.)

Larry David: 'I haven’t given up the hope' for another 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' season

Larry David: “I haven’t given up the hope” for another “Curb Your Enthusiasm” season The crowd erupted Sunday night when David made that comment about “Curb” in a Q&A session with David Steinberg.

George Zimmerman’s family wanted to get him a reality show to “rebrand” his image Zimmerman’s family felt the Neighborhood Watch volunteer who shot and killed Trayvon Martin could have his image rehabilitated via reality television.
