Being a mom has given Selma Blair hope for the whole world. "It blows my mind to think about how intense the bond is that women have with their children, especially in the first few years of life. And it just blows my mind that everyone who has children feels this way, too," the Anger Management star told The Glow in a recent interview. "If the world is capable of this much love, and patience, and understanding, I just can't imagine what we're all capable of together." Of course, even her pregnancy—she gave birth to son Arthur in July 2011—started off on a high note. "I was so blissed-out when I was pregnant," Blair raved. "I had an amazing »

Prolific television writer and producer Sam Simon has passed away, Deadline is reporting. Simon succumbed to the colorectal cancer that he had been fighting since 2012. He was 59.
Simon began his career in television working on animated features such as Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids as a storyboard artist. Having an interest in writing as well, Simon submitted a spec script for the television show Taxi, which subsequently led to the hiring of him as a writer and eventual showrunner for the series’ final season, where he first worked with James L. Brooks.
His path through television led him to the writing rooms of other luminary TV shows such as Cheers, Barney Miller, and It’s Garry Shandling’s Show, ultimately leading him to be a writer and producer on The Tracey Ullman Show, where he once again worked with Brooks.

CBS' "Two and a Half Men" ended on Thursday (February 19) night after 12 seasons and a whopping 262 episodes. It was a show that relied heavily on puns and hack dirty jokes, a sitcom that went on far too long -- between five years and 12 years, depending on who you ask -- and ground a premise that was almost impossible to logically justify into the ground. But don't take my word for it. Ask "Two and a Half Men"! Thursday's two-part "Of Course He's Dead" finale may not have been great art, but it was an amusingly self-conscious conclusion built around an unfulfilled promise that at least punished the principals responsible for that unfulfilled promise. And if a finale featuring two people crushed by pianos isn't love, it'll have to do until the real thing comes along. [In other news, the series finale of "Parks and Recreation" is less than a week away and I somehow assume it will be the real thing. »

Welcome to the February 12, 2015 edition of Outrage Watch, HitFix's daily rundown of all the things folks are peeved about in entertainment. Today's top story? Beyonce gets a smack-down from Huffington Post contributor Kim Lute. Oh boy, does Kim go after Beyonce here. In an impassioned article posted today, the Peabody-winning journalist takes aim at the singer's performance of the classic Mahalia Jackson gospel song "Precious Lord, Take My Hand" at Sunday's Grammys: "The performance of this iconic song, of which Beyoncé and her family apparently believes is uniquely theirs alone -- though it's sung almost universally at black funerals and churches -- should have been fraught with significance," she writes. And then, more damningly: "And if, as Beyoncé contends, this song means so very much to her why hasn't she sung it on any of her 200 albums? Could her performance have merely hinted at an exaggerated sense of self-worth that »

FX Networks has an aggressive plan to expand its comedy biz in 2015. This year the cabler will launch two series that aim to follow the lead of critically-hailed game changer “Louie,” and Fox’s flagship cabler will take bigger steps to differentiate the branding between comedies on the mothership channel and its Fxx offspring.
The latter half of that strategy began in earnest this week with the debut of “Man Seeking Woman,” a surrealist look at the dating lives of a group of twentysomethings starring Jay Baruchel (“This Is the End”) and executive produced by Lorne Michaels. The half-hour follows Fxx flagship series “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia,” a cult favorite that is now entering its tenth season as a remarkably steady ratings performer.
The wacky narcissists on “Sunny” find themselves arrested for arson one week and hooked on crack the next, while when Baruchel says he’s dating »
