Bravo’s 10 new entries include a road-trip series featuring “Real Housewives of Atlanta” fan-faves NeNe Leakes (pictured left) and Kim Zolciak Biermann (right), and “Ladies of Dallas,” a look at the over-the-top antics of social climbers in the Lone Star state. “Mother Funders” is a “Real Housewives”-esque look at a group of alpha moms who run a Parent-Teacher Organization in a small Georgia town.
Bravo is also launching its first scripted comedy series, “Odd Mom Out,” later this year, on the heels of its inaugural drama series, “The Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce,” which has been renewed for a second season.

Daylight saving time: How is this still a thing? Last Week Tonight with John Oliver has the answer, and despite an age-old assumption, it has nothing to do with farmers — or their “stupid, stupid cows.”
As it turns out, the answer isn’t really an answer at all, at least not one that supports the validity of daylight saving as a continued practice in 2015.

Show host Harris signs off with a chirpy, “Buenos noches!”
Sean Penn walks on. It’s time for the big one. Best film. Will it be Birdman or Boyhood? It’s Birdman! The movie ends the night tied with The Grand Budapest Hotel on four Oscars. Inarritu, referring to his pal Alfonso Cuaron who enjoyed success with Gravity at last year’s show, says, “Two Mexicans in a row. That’s suspicious, I guess.” Slightly more seriously, Agi also calls on his fellow Mexicans to help build a strong future for his beloved country. Wow, a good night for Birdman and a surprisingly barren one for Boyhood. Pirates indeed, Ethan Hawke, but glorious pirates.

Another Packard Theater highlight next month is Sam Peckinpah's ultra-violent Western The Wild Bunch (1969), starring William Holden and Ernest Borgnine. Also, Howard Hawks' "anti-High Noon" Western Rio Bravo (1959), toplining John Wayne and Dean Martin.
