Louis C.K. Gets Fired from Secret Life of Pets 2

Louis C.K. Gets Fired from Secret Life of Pets 2
Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment have announced they are cutting ties with controversial comedian Louis C.K., who will not be returning for the animated sequel The Secret Life of Pets 2. The move comes in the wake of a New York Times report where five women came forward and revealed that the beloved comedian either masturbated in front of them, or during phone conversations. In a surprising move, Louis C.K. admitted these stories were true in an impassioned statement earlier today, which has lead to an exodus of sorts, with networks, studios, production companies and even his publicists cutting ties with the comedian.

In the original animated hit The Secret Life of Pets, Louis C.K. provided the voice of Max, a beloved Jack Russell Terrier dog who was the main protagonist in the story, who had been expected to return but will no longer do so. It isn't known if the

Wait, Was That Taylor Swift in Selena Gomez's "Bad Liar" Music Video?

  • BuzzSugar
After Selena Gomez's "Bad Liar" music video dropped on Wednesday, eagle-eyed fans thought they might have spotted Taylor Swift. People took to Twitter to share screenshots from the bedroom scene toward the end of the video, zeroing in on the posters on the wall. One appears to be a Charlie's Angels poster, with the center figure looking a bit like Swift, but to be fair, both Farrah Fawcett and Cheryl Ladd from the TV series have Taylor-esque vibes. Meanwhile, another poster in the video features a blond woman rocking white sunglasses reminiscent of Swift's 1989 tour look. Coincidence? Most likely, but you have to hand it to the fans for always being on the lookout! Did anyone else notice the Taylor Swift poster in the background of the Bad Liar music video? - ljp2010 (@directmixswift7) June 15, 2017 Is my brain just playing games or is that Taylor Swift pic.twitter.com

As Gomez -- who appeared in Swift's "Bad Blood" music video in 2014 -- dances around the room, there are several posters on the wall that appear to have the "Shake It Off" singer's face on them. On the "niNa

20 Years of TV History

what TVs looked like in the 90s (history of sets here)Here's a must read for the day. Over at HitFix, Alan Sepinwall has reached his 20th anniversary as a TV journalist/critic . It's a fascinating piece on 20 years of writing about TV and how much has changed in that medium since 1996. It's a fun history and nostalgia ride, particularly if you're interested in serialized TV (the best assett of TV but it took decades for TV to get there). I love most of the article and I'll save the highlights for your reading there.

But I do want to vehemently disagree with this statement I've bolded below even though the general idea now that "everything is better with TV" is totally true.

I can appreciate nostalgia for those days, if for no other reason than that the beat was easier to cover when there weren't 400+ original scripted series airing every year.

Mercedes McCambridge Centennial: "Charlie's Angels" & "Bewitched"

Today is the Centennial of one of the most singular character actresses of the 1950s, Mercedes McCambridge, born in Joliet Illinois on this very day in 1916. We hope you've enjoyed our mini retrospective. We previousy discussed her sensational debut in All The King's Men (1949) her final Oscar nomination for the Texas epic Giant (1956) and her sorry fate in a teensy part in the Airport disaster series. (In the past, Icymi, we've amply discussed The Exorcist in which she did truly legendary voice work as well as the fiery abandon of must-see western Johnny Guitar.) 

In The Concorde... Airport '79 article, Tim talked about the disaster genre's often ...um... disastrous treatment of aged film stars in cameos. But discarded stars of Old Hollywood also frequently collected paychecks through TV guest spots. On the small screen there was the same roulette wheel chances at success.

Jaclyn Smith Turns a Stunning 70: See the Charlie's Angels Beauty and 29 More Stars Still Sexy in Their 60s, 70s & Beyond
Once a sex symbol, always a sex symbol. Certainly in Jaclyn Smith's case, at least. The original Charlie's Angels star is celebrating her 70th birthday today and whatever it is she's doing... It's working. Smith, who covered many a bedroom wall alongside fellow poster girls Farrah Fawcett and Kate Jackson in the 1970s, is still pretty pinup-worthy as far as we're concerned. After Charlie's Angels wrapped its six-year run in 1981, Smith became a fixture on the small screen in TV movies—she was nominated for a Golden Globe for her title role in Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy—and she had a cameo in 2003's Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. She also famously turned into a...
