Rosie O'Donnell Responds to Donald Trump's Bashing During Debate, Calls Him an 'Orange Anus'

27 September 2016 7:50 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The bad blood between Donald Trump and Rosie O'Donnell isn't over: In fact, O'Donnell called him an "orange anus." During Monday night's presidential debate, the Gop nominee defended the controversial remarks he's made about O'Donnell over the years after his opponent Hillary Clinton took a moment to highlight his history of making misogynistic comments about women. While Clinton didn't specifically bring up O'Donnell, Trump did, claiming that his attacks were justified because the comedian "deserves it." "Hillary is hitting me with tremendous commercials," said Trump, 70. "Some of it said in entertainment, some of it said to somebody who's been very »

7th Heaven: Longest Running Us Family Drama Debuted 20 Years Ago

26 August 2016 5:46 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Where can you go, when the world don't treat you right? Twenty years ago today, the answer was "home," specifically that of the Camden family, when the 7th Heaven TV show first premiered on The WB. Beating out both The Waltons and Little House on the Prairie, this longest running family drama was supposed to end with the 10th season finale episode, "...And Thank You," (part-two to the prior week's episode, "Goodbye..." part one). Below you'll find old clips including the opening theme, the first scene from the pilot, and a behind-scenes special.That supposed TV series finale did so well in the ratings that The CW renewed 7th Heaven for an 11th season. All told, there were 243 episodes, including the actual season 11 and series finale, "And Away We Go." 7th Heaven starred: Stephen Collins, Catherine Hicks, Barry Watson, Jessica Biel, Beverly Mitchell, David »

Drive-In Dust Offs: Happy Birthday To Me (1981)

6 August 2016 10:39 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Aging much better than a freezer burnt, half eaten cake, Happy Birthday to Me (1981) stands out as one of the better ones from the golden era of slashers, when the major studios weren’t afraid to throw some blood soaked (Canadian) coin at a B level concept, and in the process giving it some A list icing.

The Canadian ties? Filmed in Montreal when tax credits were still flying fast and furious, Happy was one of Columbia Pictures early ‘80s ventures into the horror world. (Graduation Day, released the same year, was the breadwinner of the two.) Recruiting the Canadian producing juggernaut of Andre Link and John Dunning (David Cronenberg’s cohorts on his mid ‘70s output, Shivers and Rabid), Columbia was guaranteed a good return on their investment. Of course, the Canuck connection doesn’t stop there – the cast includes such faces of Canadiana as Lawrence Dane (Scanners), Jack Blum »

Nostalgia on TV? It's nothing new

18 July 2016 2:58 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Louisa Mellor Jul 19, 2016

Netflix's Stranger Things may be a nostalgia-fest, but that's not new. TV has always let us escape into comforting stories about the past…

Remember the good old days? They were good weren’t they? Not like now. It’s horrible now. That’s why everything on TV is comforting, coddling, backwards-looking fluff. We all just want to dive onto a feathery pile of period television and forget about the cruel, unsettling world of today. A world where, get this, the Soviets have gone into space. And there’s that war in Korea. Everyone’s testing hydrogen bombs all over the place, Castro’s taken over Cuba and innocent people keep getting lynched. I ask you. It’s little wonder all we want to watch on TV are cosy Westerns. Switch on Gunsmoke and all that worry melts away.

Fast-forward a few decades to now, when the release »

Drive-In Dust Offs: The Vampire (1957)

25 June 2016 10:38 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Horror in the ‘50s tended to lean towards the sci-fi end of the spectrum. And why wouldn’t it? This was the atomic age, and hiding under your school desk during a bomb drill (the safest place to be!) was scarier than any monster Hollywood could muster. So as a form of social moralizing (or an excuse to display giant, mutated lizards on screen), filmmakers merged the fear of nuclear annihilation with the need for entertainment. Most filmmakers, that is. Paul LandresThe Vampire (1957) is a deliberate ride through the (mostly) human condition, small in scope but surprisingly big on emotion. Just don’t expect any vampires, radioactive, sparkly, or otherwise.

What you do get is a story much closer to Stevenson than Stoker, a simple riff on Jekyll and Hyde shot through a cautionary tale about America’s then growing concern with pill poppin’. The Vampire is more concerned »

From Must-See TV to Peak TV: 20 Years of covering television

2 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you were a TV critic from 1956 to 1976, you would have witnessed some big changes in the business: the rise and fall of the Western as the dominant primetime genre, or the color TV boom, or CBS' shift from silly rural comedies to socially conscious ones like All in the Family and M*A*S*H. If you covered the beat from 1976 to 1996, you would have written about Hill Street Blues and its many imitators, the classic years of SNL, and the early days of original cable programming. Almost any 20-year span would give you a front row seat to enormous artistic and technological change. As of this week, I've been professionally writing about television for exactly 20 years(*), and it's safe to say that the only two-decade period that featured a more radical transformation in how television was made and consumed would be back when the medium was first introduced into America's living rooms. »

Dolly Parton Talks ‘Coat of Many Colors,’ Sequels and Broadway

1 June 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors,” a TV movie based on an autobiographical Parton song, drew more than 13 million viewers when it aired on NBC last December. “Coat of Many Colors” also served as a coming attraction for the upcoming Broadway musical based on her life story and was the country legend’s first project in a deal with NBC for multiple two-hour movies. Parton spoke with Variety about what she feels made the movie a success and what role she’d love to take in a sequel.

At what point did you start thinking about making a movie based on this particular song?

For years I’ve thought it would make a good movie and I knew there would be a time that was right. I’ve been offered many deals to do it through the years but it just didn’t seem like the exact right time. »

She later booked small roles on “The Love Boat” and “Little House on the Prairie” before she landed on “Alice,” based on the Martin Scorsese film “Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore,” as ditzy waitress Vera Louise Gorman. »

William Schallert, Former SAG President and ‘Patty Duke Show’ Star, Dies at 93

9 May 2016 10:52 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Former SAG president William Schallert, best known as TV dad Martin Lane on “The Patty Duke Show,” died Sunday in Pacific Palisades, Calif. He was 93. His son Edwin confirmed his death.

His most memorable role was as beloved TV dad Martin Lane on “The Patty Duke Show” (1963-66). The performance still resonates: TV Guide slotted him at No. 39 on its list of Greatest TV Dads of All Time in 2004.

Schallert would be familiar to many for his memorable appearance on the famous “The Trouble With Tribbles” episode of the original “Star Trek” series: He played Nilz Baris, the agriculture undersecretary who is outraged to discover that the furry, endlessly reproducing aliens have devoured all the grain.

Schallert served as SAG president from 1979-81 and oversaw a three-month strike in 1980 that centered around rates and residuals for pay TV, videocassettes and videodiscs and included a successful boycott of the year’s primetime Emmy Awards. »
