'80s TV stars sing 'Let It Go'

23 July 2014 10:48 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

While listening to Frozen’s “Let It Go,” have you ever thought, “Patrick Stewart and/or a bunch of other ’80s TV stars would make this gem even better”? No? Well, video producer Jim Cliff went ahead and edited together clips from over 60 different ’80s television shows to make a new, Tom Selleck-filled version of “Let It Go” anyway—and yes, Stewart’s Captain Jean-Luc Picard even joins in on the chorus.

The Cosby Show, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Alf are among the other shows featured in this ’80s-tastic rendition of the Oscar-winning song. Sure, this version »

Ricky Gervais -- Kills One TV Show ... Cosby, Seinfeld or Raymond

17 July 2014 5:45 PM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Ricky Gervais played an awesome game with us -- it's kinda like bang, marry, kill ... but in this case he has to choose from 3 classic TV sitcoms. Seinfeld, Everybody Loves Raymond, and The Cosby Show were his options -- and Ricky happily gave one of 'em the Axe! Okay, maybe not happily.  Read more »

Stage And Screen Legend Elaine Stritch Dies At 89

17 July 2014 3:46 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Elaine Stritch, one of the most unforgettable and acerbically funny actors of the Broadway stage, as well as the big and small screen, died at her home in Birmingham, Mich., on Thursday. She was 89.

A brash and beautiful presence who infused audiences with laughter even into her late eighties, Stritch is perhaps best known to young audiences as Colleen Donaghy, the mother of Alec Baldwin’s character on 30 Rock. Since the early 1950s, the actress had been entertaining audiences on the New York stage, racking up four Tony nominations. She was such a titan of Broadway that in 2003, in the late prime of her career, the New York Landmarks Conservancy declared Stritch a “Living Landmark.” She also won three Emmy awards between 1993 and 2007.

On Broadway, she was best known for her performance as Joanne in the Stephen Sondheim-penned musical Company and for stealing the show in Noel Coward’s »

Malcolm-Jamal Warner Reveals He Had a Crush on His Cosby Show Sister Lisa Bonet

17 July 2014 12:12 PM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Just like Greg and Marcia Brady! Malcolm-Jamal Warner and Lisa Bonet played brother and sister on The Cosby Show, but offscreen, Warner's feelings for his costar were far from familial. During an interview with Access Hollywood Live on Wednesday, July 16, the Major Crimes actor, 43, confessed to having a bit of a crush on his onscreen sister back in the day. "Early on, it was Lisa, just because we were so close in age," he said of Bonet, now 46 and married to Game of Thrones [...] »

Elaine Stritch, Acerbic Tony and Emmy Winner, Dies at 89

17 July 2014 10:01 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Actress Elaine Stritch, star of Broadway hits including “Elaine Stritch at Liberty” and “Show Boat,” who was nominated for multiple Tonys and Emmys, winning three of the latter, has died. She was 89.

Stritch, an atypical star of stage and screen known for her association with Stephen Sondheim, quickly gained a reputation for the worldly, acerbic wit that often defined her characters. In her one-woman show “Elaine Stritch at Liberty,” Stritch talked candidly about battling the bottle and her colorful, albeit destructive, love life. Her role as the drunk yet lucid Claire in “A Delicate Balance” earned her a 1996 Tony nomination for best actress. Roles in “Bus Stop,” “Sail Away” and “Company” snagged her three other noms while “Elaine Stritch at Liberty” won her the 2002 award for special theatrical event.

On television, Stritch was memorable late in her career for her recurring role on NBC’s “30 Rock” as the crusty, goofy »

Outlaw Saga Road to Paloma Moves Too Slowly

8 July 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Road to Paloma contains a junkyard fistfight in which one of the pugilists gets bludgeoned in the face with a rusty gasoline can (yes, we hear the bridge of his nose snap); a sex scene with the ravishing Lisa Bonet (who eerily doesn't seem to have aged since her tenure on The Cosby Show); and the longest, most balletic ashes-spreading sequence in film history. There's an aerobic lap dance, a gruesome rape, more beatings.

Yet for all that, this film is numbingly dull, an outlaw-on-the-run saga as laconic and slow-moving as its fierce, hirsute protagonist (Game of Thrones' Jason Momoa, who also debuts as director). Wolf (Momoa), a Mojave loner, is hiding out somewhere in the Southwest after avenging his mother's murder.

Writer/Creator Gary Janetti Brings “Vicious” Brit Gay Sitcom Stateside

27 June 2014 8:22 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

The pairing of acting legends Sir Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi is a match made in heaven, but putting them together in a bawdy, bitchy British sitcom playing lovers who have been together for nearly 50 years? Yes, please!

Vicious aired last year in the UK and had its share of fans and critics. American viewers are finally getting a chance to decide for themselves if this show is the gay sitcom that we’ve been waiting for. (One good sign is that Vicious already has a second season order and will start shooting this fall. Hopefully the Us airings will garner solid ratings to continue airing beyond the first season).

TheBacklot sat down recently in West Hollywood with series creator Gary Janetti, who you know as a writer on such comedies as Will & Grace and Family Guy as well as being partnered with celebrity stylist/TV personality, Brad Goreski.  Janetti »

TV On Tap: Fox Wants to Cancel “Harry” and David Tennant Returns as “The Escape Artist”

13 June 2014 5:13 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

Restoring our faith in humanity, Fox has cancelled the mean spirited I Want to Marry “Harry” as well as the improv show Riot. The remaining episodes of “Harry” will be made available online, while Fox says it will eventually find a new time slot to air Riot.

The Comeback co-creator Michael Patrick King talked with EW about the cult comedy’s new season. “Valerie does get in the spotlight, which is what she always reached for, but we found a unique way of telling the story about what can happen when you get something you want.”

ABC Family’s new drama Chasing Life has booked Ed Asner and Marion Ross for guest roles, according to The Hollywood Reporter. They’ll play the grandparents of lead character April.

Joe Morton is a part of the cast of the upcoming TNT drama Proof but that doesn’t mean he’ll be gone from Scandal. »

Summer sitcom rewind: 'The Cosby Show' - 'Theo's Holiday'

11 June 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We're continuing this periodic summer project where we revisit classic sitcom episode. Last week, we did a "NewsRadio" double feature, and today we're going to talk about one of my favorite episodes of "The Cosby Show," called "Theo's Holiday," coming up just as soon as my corporate headquarters has 49 floors but no phone... Periodically throughout the latter half of the 20th century, various TV genres would be declared dead and buried. Some of them actually stayed dead, more or less, like the Western, while others lay fallow, waiting for the right show to bring the public mood back to it. In the early '80s, the sitcom was the genre being put out to pasture, falling behind dramas of various stripes, from the lofty ambitions of "Hill Street Blues" and "St. Elsewhere" to the soapy environs of "Dallas" and "Dynasty" to the comedy/drama/action mix of "Magnum, P.I. »

Watch: LeBron James' Starz Comedy 'Survivor's Remorse' Gets a Very Dramatic Teaser

10 June 2014 10:10 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

LeBron James may be on the cusp of his third NBA title right now, but he wants you to know that getting there wasn't easy. That's the gist of the Starz sports comedy James is executive producing -- the network's first foray into the genre -- but you'd never know it from watching the teaser below. Flashing statistic after statistic over images of various basketball hoops, "Survivor's Remorse" looks like it could be a hard-hitting drama taking on the difficult subject of seriously pursuing professional sports as a life choice. It even states the percentage of former players who go bankrupt after five years out of the game is 41 percent, a daunting figure for a lifestyle treated like winning the lottery (though a lot of those people go bankrupt, too). The only problem? "Survivor's Remorse" is a comedy. The other Ep's are Tom Werner, who worked on "The Cosby Show" and "That 70's Show, »

Emmys: 'Orange Is the New Black's' Uzo Aduba Makes a Plea to Voters (Guest Column)

2 June 2014 3:45 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

This story first appeared in the June 13 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. As the excitement of TV's biggest night draws closer, it's crucial that we examine the cavernous absence of diversity and full inclusion in the TV awards conversation. The industry long has avoided the subject, perhaps even ignored it! The last series with a non-white cast to win the comedy Emmy was The Cosby Show in 1985. The last woman of color to take the comedy actress prize was Isabel Sanford (The Jeffersons) in 1981. Today, with the groundbreaking impact of Orange Is the New Black, it's time

TV #Tbt: Drew Barrymore Brings Her Super Cuteness to 'Carson'

29 May 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The world has known Drew Barrymore for pretty much her whole life. We were introduced to the cherubic child with the blonde curls and the adorable scream in "E.T." back in 1982, and now it's hard to remember a time when she didn't appear on the big screen.

Now she's a mom of two, wife, A-lister, and frequent Adam Sandler co-star -- currently in theaters in "Blended." Her career has spanned over 30 years and she hasn't even hit 40.

So, let's go back to the early '80s and check out this little charmer on "The Tonight Show." She talks to Johnny Carson with greatest of ease, and even surprises him by taking out her fake teeth. Just watch:

And in the spirit of her friendship and working relationship with Adam Sandler, look out for his younger self in this clip from "The Cosby Show" below. Adam recurred as Theo's friend Smitty »
