Just in time for the election, EW has teamed with research firm Experian Marketing Services to present the favorite TV shows of Republicans and Democrats. Below are dozens of series whose audiences tend to skew heavily toward one political party or the other. To some extent, the results confirm partisan stereotypes: Dem favorites include snarky comedies like NBC's Community, Saturday Night Live, and IFC's Portlandia, liberal-messaging shows such as Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, and Aaron Sorkin's The Newsroom; plus there's a dash of science-based programming like Fox's Cosmos miniseries and PBS' Nova. »

Jon Stewart confirms he was approached to host "Meet the Press," but he didn't take NBC's offer seriously "My guess is they were casting as wide and as weird a net as they could,” Stewart tells Rolling Stone. "I'm sure part of them was thinking, 'Why don't we just make it a variety show?’” Stewart also says that he thinks Stephen Colbert might be even better when he takes over from Letterman. "Untethered from his character, I think he'll actually have more room and really be able to deliver in a way that's going to surprise people,” says Stewart. E! extends Joel McHale’s “The Soup” deal through 2016 McHale will continue hosting the weekly comedy show, while also coming up reality projects for the network.

According to Nick Kroll, the initial inspiration for "Adult Beginners," his debut feature as a leading man, came from a botched diaper change after babysitting his sister's young nephew. From there, the comedian brought the idea for a movie about a man-child nanny to his "League" co-star Mark Duplass, who came on-board as a producer, then teamed up with writers Jeff Cox and Liz Flahive (parents of a 3-year-old themselves) and longtime producer Ross Katz, making his directorial debut with the film.
In it, Kroll stars as a self-absorbed entrepreneur who leaves Manhattan to go to live with his pregnant sister (Rose Byrne) and brother-in-law (Bobby Cannavale) in the suburbs after his tech start-up implodes, and ends up becoming the nanny for his 3-year-old nephew in exchange for room and board. Fans of Kroll (from his sketch comedy series "Kroll Show" or "The League") won't be surprised to hear that "Adult Beginners" is extremely funny, »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Lindsay Lohan was the latest celebrity to participate in the viral Als Ice Bucket Challenge campaign, after a "Tonight Show" viewer wrote in to complain that he challenged the actress, but she had yet to respond. That didn't sit well with host Jimmy Fallon, who flew Lohan in from London to complete the stunt. After she did the deed, the sopping wet starlet challenged another set of people, including Prince Harry and fellow "Tonight Show" guest Jared Leto.
Speaking of Leto, he didn't walk away from "Tonight" completely unscathed either, as mid-interview, Fallon decided to shave his bushy, messiah-reminiscent beard. "I have been asked to do some resurrections lately, »

So the big Emmys don't air until next Sunday night and at Moviefone we will have, of course, full coverage. But last night the Creative Arts Emmys were handed out, for the people that are largely responsible for making these shows that you absolutely love -- you know, the behind-the-scenes talent tasked with conceptualizing and realizing your favorite programs. Oh -- and some guest actor and actresses awards were handed out, so there's that too!
In the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series category Uzo Aduba took home the prize for "Orange is the New Black." Since we are, very shamefully, one of a handful of Americans who hasn't seen a single second of "Orange in the New Black," this doesn't mean a whole lot to us, but we are very happy for her!

Comedian Joel McHale juggles a lot of different hats. He hosts "The Soup" on E! Network, stars on the TV hit "Community," acts in movies and is also the father of 2 young boys. "I have multiple jobs and multiple families and multiple wives and they’re all spread throughout Us and Canada, so I need energy to see those people. I need the mental sharpness and the physical energy to be able to support all those people," jokes Joel to Healthy Hollywood.
There's only one wife in Joel's life, his longtime love, Sarah Williams. But, between his time ...

Joel McHale is still buzzing after the comedy gig of a lifetime. Earlier this year, he got the call from Barack Obamas office to do a turn at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner (previous performers: Jay Leno, Conan OBrien, Bob Hope). It was the most exhilarating and weirdest moment of my life, he says. It was like someone said, Hey, ever parachuted before? Nope. And then you just get pushed off a cliff.
McHale will be known to TV comedy aficionados as overbearing egotist Jeff Winger in Community, but the role that scored him the White House gig is his weekly stint as host of the E! channels live TV-recap show The Soup essentially a trendier, »
