Et Goes Inside Hollywood's Hottest Restaurant

5 December 2014 5:07 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

George Clooney and Bill Clinton are regulars at Craig's Restaurant in West Hollywood, a place where the biggest stars go to eat and be seen, and Et went inside Hollywood's hottest restaurant.

After George Clooney married Amal Alamuddin, he went to Craig's for a boys' night out, and picked the American restaurant to host an Oscar bash to celebrate his Best Picture win in 2013 for Argo.

News: George & Amal Are Married!

Owner Craig Susser explained to Et why the restaurant appeals to the stars.

"There is a private way in and out," said Craig, which is ideal for camera-shy celebs. "We look after people. We serve good food, great service, and it's private. What goes on in these four walls stays in these four walls and I think people feel protected."

Before running his own celeb hotspot, Craig spent 23 years as the maître 'd at another celeb favorite, Dan Tana's. His famous »

What Is 'The Taste' Cooking Up This Season? Et Goes Behind the Scenes

4 December 2014 5:06 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Et's Kevin Frazier went behind the scenes of The Taste to see what the show has in store for its return Thursday and do his own judging of the chefs' dishes.

News: Get Your First Bite of The Taste

Renowned chefs Nigella Lawson, Marcus Sammuelsson, Ludo Lefebvre and Anthony Bourdain serve as mentors/judges on the ABC show, which averaged 3.7 million viewers last season -- more than double that of Top Chef.

What makes The Taste different from other food competition shows is that the mentors/judges taste the dishes blindly to help determine their teams. Kevin did his own blind taste test, choosing Marco as the winner, which left Ludo a little bitter.

"I'm not sure you have a palette, bro," Ludo blurted.

As one of the most well-traveled chefs on Earth, Anthony gave Kevin a whiff of the worst dish he's ever had -- fermented shark.

"It's like radioactive material," said Anthony »

Why Anthony Bourdain loves doing 'The Taste'

4 December 2014 12:04 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The cooking competition "The Taste" returns tonight to ABC for its third season. The series introduced blind tasting of food to reality competitions--judges don't know whose food they're eating or even what's in the dish. It also brought Anthony Bourdain to a big, bright, glossy ABC reality show. The star of Travel Channel's Emmy-winning "No Reservations" and now CNN's "Parts Unknown" seems like perhaps the last person to gravitate to a "The Voice"-like competition for food, but when we talked Wednesday, one day before he was heading to Madagascar for "Parts Unknown," he was clearly, unabashedly enthusiastic about the series, which he also executive produces. When I asked about whether skeptical fans have now warmed to "The Taste" and his participation, Bourdain said, "I honestly don't think about. It's always a quality of life issue for me. Am I having fun? Am I working with people I like? »

"The Chew's" Carla Hall Talks Thanksgiving Disasters, Shares Holiday Party Tips!

26 November 2014 2:15 PM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

The holiday season is finally here! toofab's Brittany Kyles chatted with "The Chew's" Carla Hall about the 47th Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest, where she also shared some of her favorite holiday dishes and Thanksgiving horror stories. If you're like us, December is probably filled with holiday parties -- from family functions to work events. So we asked Carla what's one really good and really simple dish to bring to a party. "I just did something on 'The Chew' recently and it was the creamy bustle sprout dip which is very similar to an artichoke and spinach dip," she told us. "So it's kind of like a twist on an old favorite.""The way that I would bring it is to take smaller crock pot or ceramic pan and then have it in a big bowl and once I get there put it into a pot and throw it into the oven. »

Best of Late Night TV: Conan's 'Sons of Anarchy' Show, Drew Barrymore's 'Fever Pitch' Reunion (Video)

11 November 2014 11:15 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

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.

Conan O'Brien had the cast of "Sons of Anarchy" on his show Tuesday night. "Conan" posted a great cold open, showing the host attempting to be a ginger badass. They also shared a behind-the-scenes video to show how they put the opening together.

The Soa-themed episode included a special tribute to Charlie Hunnam's naked back, which has gotten a lot of air time on the show. Ah, memories.

Watch the full roundup of Soa cast videos on Conan's site, including Kurt Sutter's fantasy ending for the show, Charlie's final farewell to Jax, and Drea de Matteo's embarrassing confession. There's a lot of good stuff. Here's a tourism ad for Charming, »

'The Comeback' returns with more Bravo than Valerie

10 November 2014 12:50 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The comeback of "The Comeback" cleverly began exactly the same way as the first season, with a test pattern and an indication that we were seeing raw footage for a show called "The Comeback." Yet the show that followed was very different. Yes, it's still raw footage from a camera crew -- this time, a group of students Valerie Cherish is using to produce a pilot presentation for her own reality series -- but both Valerie and the series have changed. Most significantly, Valerie is in control. She's far less insecure and constantly troubled about how she'll appear to others, in part because she's the one controlling her film crew, however amateur they are. This time, if she makes that T with her hands, they really will time out and not use it ("My show, I can cut it"). Or at least, that's the way things appear now. It's a remarkable change for the character, »

Why I was wrong about 'The Comeback'

9 November 2014 2:33 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

As a TV critic, I often feel that good shows don't have a big effect on me. Obviously, the great ones do. But I also find that the ones that I initially dislike are also the ones that I end up thinking about the most, long after they're over, wondering why they touched a nerve for me in the first place. How can something that inspires such a strong opinion possibly be all that bad? I thought about that question a lot while watching the new episodes of The Comeback. When it first premiered in 2005, I didn't love The Comeback, »

Top Chef‘s Gail Simmons on Getting Tough, Failed Dishes, and An All-Female Season

22 October 2014 8:43 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

It’s almost hard to imagine that Top Chef is still on the air but even in its twelfth season, it’s as delicious as ever. The Bravo series, which has taken the chefs (and viewers) from New York to New Orleans, is now calling Boston home as it puts a new group of contestants to the test in what looks to be the series’ toughest season yet. Gail Simmons, who has served as a judge since the show premiered in 2006, is still amazed by the enormity of what the franchise become. “If you would have told me then that I would still be making the show and still be in this role, I would never have believed you,” Simmons says. “We’re still making great food television and eating really delicious food.”

In an interview with VH1, Simmons opens up about dishing out harsher critiques, welcoming former contestant Richard Blais to the judges’ table, »

The Televerse #164- Transparent, Outlander, and New Representations of Sexuality on TV with Mo Ryan

22 October 2014 5:14 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

There’s a lot of interesting new TV kicking around, but this week we roll back our regular podcast coverage a bit to make room for a special segment. First we look at a few reality offerings, including the pilot of the new documentary series Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways, and some comedy, including an at least partially pantheon-level Key & Peele. Then we look at some genre, particularly American Horror Story: Freak Show, and we round out our week with a few drama offerings, including the finale of The Knick. Afterward, the fabulous Maureen Ryan of the Huffington Post and Talking TV with Ryan and Ryan returns to the podcast to discuss Transparent season one, the first half-season of Outlander, and several other series as we look at new representations of sexuality that are finally popping up on television.
