Ryan Lochte Is Relying on Girlfriend's Support After Dancing with the Stars Protest - and Reveals They've Moved in Together!

19 September 2016 9:45 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Watching two men storm the stage in protest after his performance on last week's Dancing with the Stars left Ryan Lochte in a dark place. "Last week I wanted to quit the show," Lochte revealed to People backstage after Monday night's episode of DWTS. "I was like, 'The Dancing with the Stars show doesn't deserve this.' I was really down on myself. But DWTS came together as a family and they really supported me and gave me that positive influence that kept me going back to rehearsal and staying on the show. I really owe it all to them. »

Can you picture this, nostalgia-addled hipsters? The crowd at the Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco received a felt-covered treat this weekend, as “The Muppet Show” house band Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem took the stage and showed the youngsters how it’s done. Floyd Pepper, Animal, Janice and the rest of the gang took the stage and ripped through a 20-minute set, starting with their signature tune “Can You Picture That?” before doling out bruising renditions of “Home Is Wherever I’m With You,” “With a Little Help From My Friends” and other tunes.

Lynda Carter Joins ‘Supergirl’ in Recurring Role

21 June 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Hail to the “Supergirl” Chief: “Wonder Woman” herself, Lynda Carter, has signed on to appear on multiple episodes of the series as it moves to The CW in Season 2.

But she won’t be playing the iconic comic book character this time. Carter will star as the President of the United States starting in episode 3.

The CW hasn’t shared any information beyond that, but Carter joins other actors from the DC Comics TV universe who have made their way to “Supergirl,” including Dean Cain. And, of course, current DC TV stars are now popping up, including Grant Gustin as “The Flash.”

Carter, of course, famously played “Wonder Woman” on the hit 1970s series. This also isn’t the first time Carter has made a return to the world of DC Comics on TV, as she also guested on an episode of “Smallville. »

Wonder Woman joins the cast of 'Supergirl' as...

21 June 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The CW is really bringing out the big guns for Supergirl. Set for its big move to the network from CBS this fall, the series will officially introduce Kara Danvers' (Melissa Benoist's) famous cousin Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) to the series right out of the gate in the first two episodes of the season. But that's not all!  Wonder Woman herself, Lynda Carter, will join the cast as the President of the United States. Not since Battlestar Galactica's Laura Roslin have we been this excited for a commander in chief. Carter is locked for multiple episodes and will first appear in episode three. So one smooth move from Superman to Wonder Woman.   Carter was crowned Miss World America in 1972 and most famously played Wonder Woman from 1975-1979 in the now iconic television series. Supergirl has been known to bring in actors who've played superheroes previously as a tip of the hat to fans, »

Why Rita Moreno Thanked ‘Rockford’ Writer Juanita Bartlett in Her 1978 Emmy Win

9 June 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

By the time she won her first Emmy in 1977 for “The Muppet Show,” Rita Moreno already had an Oscar, Tony and Grammy. That officially made her an Egot winner — long before “30 Rock” popularized the phrase. She broke more Emmy ground in 1983 as the first Latina nominated for lead actress in a comedy [for “9 to 5”]. This season Moreno guest-starred on “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Grace and Frankie” and multiple episodes of “Jane the Virgin.”

You won your first Emmy for “The Muppet Show” but couldn’t attend.

I was doing “Scapino” playing a male role in Milwaukee, Wis. What was fun about that is that the award actually happened during intermission. I had the TV on my dressing room, I yelled up and down. The management told the audience, so when I came on stage they whooped. It was pretty marvelous.

Then you won the next year, too, for “The Rockford Files.”

I was thrilled. »

Kids Shows That Were Actually for Adults

25 May 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Is it ever possible to truly grow up? Adults will inevitably tell you there are moments when they feel like frauds -- mere children disguised as grown-ups. And maybe that's the reason there are so many children's television series with considerable crossover appeal. Animated or live-action, these shows may be marketed to kids, but they possess a certain mature quality that brings in an adult fan base too.

It's a challenge for the creative people who make TV for kids: How do you entertain the youngsters while keeping the tone sophisticated enough to prevent adults from bolting out of the room? Sometimes, a show can lean so far in the direction of amusing the parents that its "for kids" classification feels inadequate. These are the TV series that tend to fly straight over children's heads and right into the brains and hearts of would-be grown-ups.

America's Got Talent's Paul Zerdin Talks Magic, Puppets and the One Thing You Wouldn't Assume About a Ventriloquist: 'When I'm Off Stage I Don't Talk to the Puppets'

18 April 2016 5:15 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If there is one thing you should know about a ventriloquist, it's that they are "really not mad or crazy" - and absolutely do not have conversations with their puppets during the car ride home. Paul Zerdin's - the comedic ventriloquist who won last season of America's Got Talent - puppets may be some of his best friends onstage, but when once that curtain closes, so do their mouths. "Obviously, I believe that they're real and I want people to believe that they're real in the show and on stage, but when I'm off stage I don't talk to the puppets, »

Review: Did 'The Muppets' add 'a little more joy' with revamped show?

2 February 2016 6:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Last month, I spoke with new Muppets showrunner Kristin Newman about her plans to bring the characters back to their roots. Those ideas all sounded promising, but how well were they executed? Well, tonight's episode was the first she was involved with from beginning to end (though she did some rewriting on the last episode to air back in December), and I have some thoughts on whether it lived up to expectations coming up just as soon as I sell oven mitts on Etsy... Self-awareness has always been a key part of the Muppets formula. The Muppet Show was a backstage showbiz comedy, The Muppet Movie featured the characters making and watching a movie about how they first met (and the script for the movie itself becomes a plot device), Kermit and the others in The Great Muppet Caper commented about what part of the movie they were in, and »

Gang's All Here! The Muppets Reunite en Masse and Spice Up the Show's Theme Song

26 January 2016 12:15 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

After some behind-the-scenes drama following a high-profile breakup on set, the cast and crew of Up Late With Miss Piggy are kicking off the second half of the season on a much lighter note - literally. In an adorable new promo for ABC's The Muppets, which was exclusively debuted by Entertainment Weekly, 60 of the iconic characters reunite to promote their show-within-a-show with a souped-up version of the series's original 1970s theme song. From Miss Piggy and ex Kermit to Gonzo and Fozzie, the lovable gang pops up in brightly colored squares to harmonize the classic tune.Related Video: Kermit's Guilty Pleasure Is Ham? »
