The Night Of Recap: Arraignment Days and Mondays Always Get Me Down
What this week’s The Night Of lacks in plot development, it more than makes up for in terms of nameless dread and nagging questions — and I say that as nothing but a compliment.

We have exclusive details on that mysterious Rogen/Hader/Galifianakis comedy
Rodney Rothman is a spectacularly funny guy, and yet I'd wager that many of the audiences who have laughed their faces off at a joke he wrote have never heard his name. That will most likely change after the opening of what Universal is calling Untitled Zach Galifianakis/Bill Hader/Seth Rogen R-Rated Comedy, which Rothman is directing from his own original script. I've known Rothman for a while now. We first met on Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and right after that, I tracked down his book, Early Bird: A Memoir Of Premature Retirement. He was a writer for Late Night With David Letterman when he was 21 years old, and at 24, he was promoted to head writer. That's the job he left before writing Early Bird, but he didn't stay unemployed for long. He wrote some episodes of Undeclared and Committed. He tried to get an Early Bird TV show off the ground.

Ted Danson to play Stan's shrink on 'American Dad'
Analyze this: Ted Danson will play a psychiatrist in an episode of American Dad. EW has learned exclusively that the Cheers vet, who currently stars in CSI, will voice the role of "Dr. Ray," a shrink that Stan visits in the wake of a near-death experience. And we do mean shrink. "He introduces Stan to the concept of miniatures, and Stan is so caught up in the idea that he uses CIA technology to shrink himself into the miniature world where it’s all safe and protected," executive producer Matt Weitzman tells EW. Danson is not a psychiatrist, but

Exclusive Interview With Gabriel Iglesias On The Fluffy Movie

You might remember him from A Haunted House 2, but those unfamiliar with comedian Gabriel Iglesias would do themselves a big favor if they checked out The Fluffy Movie. It marks his first ever concert film and was shot at a recent show he did in San Jose.

In the film, Iglesias gets deep as he shares with his dedicated fans the struggles he has been going through as of late. He talks about dealing with diabetes and how he had to change his ways or die an early death, his relationship with his stepson, and about coming face to face with his father whom he has not seen in a couple of decades. While it may seem like a drama from that description, I assure you that this movie has a lot of big laughs from start to finish.

'Justified': Mary Steenburgen on her debut (and sticking around for the final season!) -- First Look
Mary Steenburgen begins her arc on Justified this Tuesday as Katherine Hale, the widow of a crime boss Wynn Duffy (Jere Burns) had worked for — not Theo Tonin — and a woman whose opinion Duffy clearly values. Though she’s been out of the business for a while, Katherine remains, as executive producer Graham Yost says, “as sweet as a mint julep and as lethal as a copperhead.” Steenburgen seconds that. “The character is very Elmore Leonard-like in that she’s full of surprises and you don’t ever really turn your back on her,” she says. How soon might we see her strike?

America's Next Top Model 19.07 "The Girl Who Licks the Floor" Recap

I've struggled with my perception of Victoria, pretty much since she popped onto the Top Model audition episode espousing about the Trail of Tears. Her (unintentional) humor has been one of my favorite things about cycle 19 and much of the time, I'm entertained by how unusual of a person she seems to be. Top Model often repeats archetypes and personalities, to the point where you know the dynamic the house will have before the cycle even starts, so it's been nice having a round peg trying to fit into the square Top Model circle. Though I can't help but giggle at how committed she gets at a photo shoot or the continued drubbing she gives Kiara in her confessionals, Victoria's had many moments that make me believe that she doesn't have the emotional fortitude it takes to become America's Next Top Model. The asocial behavior, the dangerously co-dependent relationship with her mother,

Filmmaker Offers Refund, Apology If You Don't Like His Movie

Filmmaker Offers Refund, Apology If You Don't Like His Movie
Pittsburgh — Dr. Ravi Godse is on call nearly 24/7 as a top internal medicine specialist in Pittsburgh, but he so loves writing, directing and starring in movies that he wants other people to love them, too.

And he is so convinced you'll love his third independent film being released on DVD on Tuesday, "Help Me Help You," that he's offering a money-back guarantee and a personal, e-mailed apology if you don't.

"These days, we are too busy and the money's too tight," said Dr. Ravi, as he likes to be called in person and as the recurring character in his films. "That's why I thought the apology was heartfelt. It's like, `I'm sorry, guys, that I couldn't entertain you.'"

Godse began making movies in 2004 and "Help Me Help You" is the first to see a limited release in theaters. It's being released on DVD by Monarch Home Entertainment and sold through Amazon and elsewhere,
