Why Fitz Is the Only One Who Can Pull Olivia Back from the Dark Side on 'Scandal'
Fitz might not be president anymore but his story is far from over on Scandal. The third episode of Scandal's final season was almost completely devoted to the former Head of State and at the end of episode, Fitz made a decision. He left Vermont and headed back to Washington D.C., all to pull Olivia away from the dark path she is currently headed down. Whether Fitz will be successful is a completely different matter. Yet in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, actor Tony Goldwyn is hopeful that his character will succeed.

66 Of Donald Trump’s Pre-Presidential YouTube Videos Have Been Made Private

As YouTubers gain experience and their skills evolve, they often make the early videos private, so that the cringey infancy of their channels is left unseen by viewers. Now, that strategy is so widespread that even the Head of State is doing it. As discovered by CNN, 66 videos hosted by Donald Trump before he became president have been made private.

The videos in question lived on the Trump Organization YouTube channel and were billed as updates “From The Desk Of Donald Trump.” Trump began hosting those vlogs in 2011, back when he was still the guy who harangued President Obama about his birth certificate, and he continued to provide regular updates for years after that. In total, his run of desk-side chats ran for 75 episodes, nine of which are still publicly available.

It’s not hard to imagine why Trump and his handlers might want to hide From The Desk of

See Oliver Stone Sympathize With Putin, Defend Soft Interview on 'Colbert'
Oliver Stone defended his soft approach interviewing Russian President Vladimir Putin to Stephen Colbert on The Late Show Monday. Stone's new four-part documentary, The Putin Interviews, debuted June 12th and continues through the 15th on Showtime.

Stone interviewed Putin more than a dozen times over two years – an unprecedented amount of access for a Western interviewer. Colbert noted that many have criticized the director for being "too cozy" with the Russian President. Stone insisted he was merely polite and respectful. When Colbert pressed the director on Russia's interference in the

WWE ask John Cena for Smackdown return, last-minute Raw changes – WrestleTalk News

Oli Davis rounds up the biggest professional wrestling news in his daily WrestleTalk column…

If you told me just a few years ago that the guy from The Apprentice with questionable hair would be the President of the United States, I would reply: “I’m fine, thank you. I don’t want all the drugs in the world that you’ve just taken.”

So it’s probably wise to not count out Rock ‘The Dwayne’ Johnson becoming the new President in 2020.

BetOnline.org have slashed The Dwayne’s Head of State odds to a very tasty 80-to-1, prompting both The Washington Post to write an article on his potential bid, and Oscar-winning documentary maker Michael Moore to glowingly endorse the People’s Champion:

Run the Rock! Run the Rock! Who do you want for commander in chief? I want the f***ing Rock! It would scare anybody that would hurt us.

Hawaii Five-0 Season 7 Episode 14 Review: Line in the Sand

  • TVfanatic
It's hard to beat a good standoff for dramatic tension.

Unless you have three groups and a fascinating bit of history like on Hawaii Five-0 Season 7 Episode 14.

It's always better when a series, especially on filmed on location, embraces its surroundings, and that's something Hawaii Five-0 has always done well.

That warm, beautiful scenery never hurts on a cold winter's night.

Anyway, I'd never heard of the Nation of Hawaii and didn't know it had its own sovereign land in the midst of the 50th State.

Thanks to my old friend WIkipedia, I now know that the Nation of Hawaii is the oldest Hawaiian independence organization and its village/cultural center/place of refuge is a fairly recent development, established in 1993.

And its Head of State, Dennis "Bumpy" Kanahele, a descendent of King Kamehamema, can act pretty well. I guess when you're talking from the heart about something you believe,

Buckingham Palace Is Getting a $460 Million Makeover

Buckingham Palace Is Getting a $460 Million Makeover
Buckingham Palace is about to get a whole lot more palatial.

On Friday, the U.K. government approved a $460 million, 10-year palace renovation plan that is expected to add a multi-billion pound boost to the British economy. The makeover will include restoring water pipes installed after World War II, as well as electrical wiring and the heating systems, so as to prevent fire risks and flood damage.

Watch: Queen Elizabeth Scolds Prince William on Buckingham Palace Balcony

The decade-long overhaul aims to improve visitor access, and will be done in phases so that the palace can remain fully functional.

"Tourists are drawn to this country because of our culture, heritage and royal legacy, and when they visit they spend billions of pounds and support thousands of jobs," Chief Secretary to the Treasury David Gauke said in a statement.

"We must ensure that the special architectural and historic nature of some of our greatest buildings are protected for future

Chris Rock Will Run for President in 2020

Chris Rock Will Run for President in 2020
The world is still stunned over what many believe is the biggest political upset of all time, when Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton to become the President-elect of the United States of America. Barring an impeachment or any other strange turn of events, the American public will have to wait four more years to decide whether or not they want to vote Donald Trump out of office, and it seems that one contender has already announced his candidacy, Chris Rock. The actor-comedian announced just days after Donald Trump's upset that he plans to run for the highest office in the land in 2020. Ironically enough, he actually has more Presidential experience than Donald Trump does, in a manner of speaking.

Chris Rock took to Twitter on Thursday to announce his candidacy with a brief statement, "I'm gonna run in 2020 wish me luck." That message was accompanied with an altered movie

William, Kate and Harry Join the Queen for Her Birthday Street Party
The Queen's biggest birthday party yet is in full effect! One day after London's grand Trooping the Colour in her honor, Queen Elizabeth celebrated her 90th birthday on Sunday with an outdoor party - and 10,000 guests in the road leading from Buckingham Palace on Sunday. (If you haven't yet seen the Lego version, please do so now. We'll wait.) It was the third main event to publicly laud the Queen in as many days, following her "neon at 90" appearance at Trooping on Saturday and a thanksgiving service at St. Paul's Cathedral on Friday. The rain cleared just before the royals appeared.

From Back to the Future's Biff to Donald Trump: how pop culture can make a president

Who are the on-screen precedents for the presidential class of 2016? For Hillary Clinton, it’s 24’s President Taylor, for Bernie Sanders, it’s Larry David and for Jeb Bush, it’s Gob in Arrested Development

Around the time of the 2008 presidential elections, a popular theory took hold that movies and TV shows had paved the way for a black president: Dennis Haysbert in 24, Chris Rock in Head of State, Morgan Freeman … well, just Morgan Freeman. Barack Obama would never have swept to victory if the nation hadn’t been conditioned by these groundbreaking portrayals, it was implied. But has pop culture been laying the ground for the next occupant of the White House? In this most unexpected of election years, the next president is likely to be different in some form: the first woman/Latino/billionaire/religious maniac – and whoever it turns out to be, you can bet the entertainment industry will take the credit.
