Kim Kardashian Tweets Insane Cleavage

28 August 2012 8:45 PM, PDT | TheInsider.com | See recent The Insider news »

Let's all take some time out to thank Kanye West for cleaning out Kim Kardashian's closet of clothes on Sunday's Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Apparently, he only left her with drawers.

Video: Kim K's Biggest Fashion Critic is Kanye

The reality star tweeted a racy pic of herself on Monday, wearing a bra and pearl necklace just before bedtime.

"Nighty night," Kim wrote as her caption.

Kim Kardashian Tweets Bedtime Photo in Pearls...and Not Much Else

28 August 2012 12:56 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Kayne West is one lucky, lucky man. The ever-sexy Kim Kardashian Instagrammed a photo of herself Monday night getting ready for bed and let's just say she's not exactly sporting, er, traditional pajamas.   The curvaceous half of Kimye dons elegant pearls and a lacy bra in the stunning vintage-looking pic which she tweeted with the caption, "Nighty Night" to her nearly 16 million followers. We're hardly surprised the always dolled-up starlet even looks fab when she's about to get some shut-eye (and we're currently contemplating tossing out our tattered Pj's). Here's hoping for a line of Kardashian bedtime couture! You know, so we can all pop on »

Photo: Kim Kardashian Flaunts Cleavage In Bra And Fur Coat

28 August 2012 11:28 AM, PDT | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Kim Kardashian finally posted a photo of herself in something other than a bikini.

This time she's flaunting her assets in little more than a bra, pearls and a fur coat.

"Nighty night," tweeted the 31-year-old reality star as she posted a photo, showing off a sultry look in sexy lingerie. Earlier, Kim tweeted an equally racy photo that showed off her legs in sexy garters and stockings. She also posted some behind-the-scenes photos of her getting her hair done, by none of than Chris McMillian -- the hairstylist responsible for Miley Cyrus' current ultra-blond pixie cut.

Check out Kim's sexy look below:

Only Connect | Horizon: How Big Is The Universe? | The Boyle Variety Performance | Fraud Lord | Hunderby | Citizen Khan

Only Connect

8.30pm, BBC4

Quite possibly the best quiz show on TV – though Pointless might contest that accolade – Only Connect returns for another series of ferociously complex conundrums. For the uninitiated, it's the anti-Red Or Black, where clever people are tasked with finding connections between apparently disparate things. The puzzles are challenging enough to warrant wild living-room celebrations on the rare occasion where you get one right, while Victoria Coren just about manages to remain on the right side of annoying smart-arsery in the host's chair. Fun. Gwilym Mumford

Horizon: How Big Is The Universe?

9pm, BBC2

The titular question would appear to be the very definition of unanswerable but, as this typically intriguing documentary demonstrates, there are boffins who beg to differ. Horizon meets cosmologists trying to create a definitive map of absolutely everything, »

American Horror Story: Asylum Sixth Teaser Tries To Escape The Horror

23 August 2012 11:35 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

American Horror Story: Asylum Sixth Teaser Tries To Escape The Horror

It's another day, which means there was another American Horror Story: Asylum teaser trailer unleashed earlier this morning, raising the total to six, and hopefully counting, mini freakouts that will play into the new season.

While the rest of the teasers have been cryptic in nature this latest addition, titled "Glass Prison," seems tame compared to the previous clips we've seen for the past few days. However the clip, which is basically an inmate trying to escape something, still delivered on the sinister and depravity that is American Horror Story, meaning that my nerves have been shot for the day. Take a look at "Glass Prison."

Terrifying? Yes indeed and I will be here front and center tomorrow for the hopefully seventh teaser. Or will Friday be the reveal of a full trailer with the cast in their roles? »

The rising price of comedy, Harry Hill post-TV Burp – plus, a new Bill and Ted adventure, and your take on the week's comedy

Comedy news from Edinburgh

It's week two of the fringe, and unease about low audience figures continues to thrum beneath the surface jollity. Richard Herring broke cover at the end of last week, writing on his blog about his own experience of low sales for his Underbelly show Talking Cock. "It's a shame that I have taken the chance on a bigger venue," he writes, "in the year when the Olympics/the recession/the dissatisfaction with high prices of everything in Edinburgh (delete or add as applicable – there's no definitive answer) has sucked out all the punters as if someone opened the door on a spacecraft."

In a thoughtful rumination on the subject, Herring predicts that the Edinburgh comedy bubble is about to burst. "It's open »

Julia Davis: laughing in the dark

10 August 2012 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Julia Davis is famous for creating some of the most uncomfortably bleak comedies of recent times. Now the star of Nighty Night is turning her dark powers to period drama in her new series Hunderby

The writer and performer Julia Davis is too good-natured to show it much, but she's plainly exasperated by descriptions of her work as "bleak" or "dark". They make it sound as if she's deliberately trying to be edgy, and this doesn't chime with her sense of herself. She enjoys watching old episodes of Friends, she insists; she's partial to 1980s movies and upbeat self-help books, and when she writes, she just writes what comes naturally. "I would never say, ooh, let's do something really dark," she says. Yet she is responsible for what are, without doubt, some of the most unsettling characters in contemporary comedy: smiling suburban sociopaths; meddlesome cold-eyed narcissists; horrifyingly mistreated spouses whose »

Bafta TV special: Jo Brand, Charlie Higson and Rebecca Front

Stars of the small screen reveal their TV secrets

The stand up: Jo Brand

Jo Brand bats away the suggestion that she's a national treasure. "To me that's someone who has a global reach, like Helen Mirren, or someone who's extremely good, like Stephen Fry. I don't have that. I've just calmed down a bit, and that's only because once I had children I was so bloody knackered I could be nothing but calm." Though her audience has widened as she's written novels, appeared on panel shows and acted in the superlative comedy Getting On, Brand says she's planning to go back to stand-up. "The world has become a horrible place for women again and I want to be gobby about it." Before then, though, she's very happy to talk about TV. "I had aspirational working-class parents who thought you shouldn't let your kids watch crap on telly. If my »

Big Train: a cult comedy that proved an early platform for top talent

25 April 2012 7:51 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Simon Pegg, Catherine Tate and Amelia Bullmore were among those in the surreal sketch show

It is 10 years since Arthur Mathews and Graham Linehan's cult comedy Big Train came to a final halt. While they were not quite a runaway success at the time, Big Train's two BBC series did prove to be an express route for the show's cast with Mark Heap, Julia Davis, Kevin Eldon, Catherine Tate, Simon Pegg, Amelia Bullmore, Rebecca Front and Tracy-Ann Oberman graduating from the surreal comedy to dominate British comedy acting.

It was their talent, combined with the Father Ted creators' brilliant writing, that helped to produce one of the most original and most consistently funny sketch shows in years. With its subversion of everyday situations by the surreal or macabre, the cast's believable portrayals and evident chemistry put the comedy into a class of its own. But few could have »

The many sides of Rebecca Front

14 April 2012 4:08 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The comic actress is one of our most underrated stars, as this selection of her best television roles shows

Simon Amstell's sitcom Grandma's House returns on Thursday, with Rebecca Front playing Amstell's mum, Tanya. Front flies under the radar, despite appearing in much of the finest TV comedy of the past two decades. We pay tribute with some of our favourite Front moments …

Enviro-mentalist Front was among the ensemble cast of seminal Radio 4 news parody On the Hour and remained so when Chris Morris remade it for TV as The Day Today. Roles included travel correspondent Valerie Sinatra (perched in "the travel pod, a mile above the very centre of Britain") and best of all, eco-reporter Rosie May – who presented the "enviromation" slot, had a beard and signed off with a nonsensical new-age epigram, such as "My milk is green, come drink me" or "Tread not on the forest leaves, »

American Horror Story: Our Wish List For The DVD/Blu-Ray Sets

28 March 2012 1:10 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

American Horror Story: Our Wish List For The DVD/Blu-Ray Sets

FX's American Horror Story has had a pretty good year so far with a Golden Globe win for Jessica Lange, who (rightfully) received the award for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama. Plus Ms. Lange will be one of the cast members returning to American Horror Story's second season, which will also feature Zachary Quinto, Sarah Paulson, Lily Rabe, and Evan Peters; all of which will be portraying different characters next year. But while things are looking pretty good for the breakout FX drama, there is one thing (other than next season's top-secret plot) the fans are still in the dark about. And that, my friends, is the release date of American Horror Story: Season 1 on Blu-ray and DVD.

Amazon.com has the set already on deck for pre-order, with the preorder price for the Blu-ray »

Have you been watching … Stella?

10 February 2012 3:19 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Ruth Jones writes and stars in this warm and witty Sky1 comedy drama about a Welsh single mum

If the first thing you'd ever written for TV was almost universally acclaimed and lavished with awards, you'd be understandably nervous about the next show you offered up to the public. But Ruth Jones, the co-creator of Gavin & Stacey with James Corden, has shown no such trepidation with Stella, her first solo project for Sky1. She writes and stars in the comedy drama about a Welsh single mum, surrounded by a collection of likeable friends and family, living in the small town of Pontyberry. And the whole thing is infused with the wit and warmth that so endeared Gavin & Stacey to its fans, but crucially, has none of the more cynical comic set-pieces that marred it.

Yes, there are too many comedy dramas on TV at the moment and yes, they do »

Angus Deayton: 'I plead guilty to having an affair. But it's no one else's business'

3 February 2012 4:10 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Angus Deayton on sex, scandals and why everybody gets paid too much on TV

The problem with interviewing Angus Deayton is neatly summed up in a one-line email from the PR before we meet. "Angus would like to keep the interview current, so he doesn't wish to talk about Have I Got News For You." What this really means, of course, is that he doesn't want to talk about why he got sacked from the show nine years ago. And who could blame him?

When 2002 drew to a close, Deayton recalls thinking to himself "that the words annus horribilis didn't really cover half of it". That summer, the News Of The World had splashed with a classic cocaine-and-hookers kiss'n'tell, involving the presenter and a woman he'd met in a bar. For Deayton, it came as news that she was a call girl; for the rest of us, that he wasn't »

A few peeks at some new The Dark Knight Rises merchandise reveal a closer look at the Batwing, as well as the Batman figure (which looks exactly like the last one) and some of those cute, cuddly-wuddly Pop! Heroes vinyl figures. Take a look at that Bane...isn't he just precious?
