‘Bachelor’ Nation ‘Lip Sync Battle': Rachel Lindsay Schools Ben Higgins With Salt-n-Pepa’s ‘Shoop’ (Video)

Rachel Lindsay, how do you do the voodoo that you do?

On Wednesday, Paramount Network released two previews from its upcoming episode of “Lip Sync Battle,” which is sure to be popular with “Bachelor” nation, as franchise stars Lindsay and Ben Higgins are going head-to-head in a battle of musical miming.

In the first clip, the former “Bachelorette” star lip-syncs and grooves through Salt-n-Pepa’s classic hip-hop hit “Shoop.” Lindsay is so good at dipping back into her bag of tricks that Higgins looks visibly concerned about following her with his own performance.

Tracy Morgan and Jordan Peele on Why ‘The Last O.G.’ Isn’t Morgan’s Comeback

TBS launched nine new live-action comedies between 2010 and 2015. Most were low-cost multicamera efforts devoid of star power or creative pedigree. Only the Ice Cube-produced “Are We There Yet?” lasted more than two seasons. But under president Kevin Reilly, TBS has sought to reinvent its original-programming brand around polished single-camera series such as “Search Party,” “People of Earth” and the upcoming “The Last O.G.”

Shot in New York, “The Last O.G.” marks Tracy Morgan’s long-anticipated return to series television. A 2014 traffic accident in which a Walmart semi struck his limousine put Morgan in a coma, killed his friend

Shark Attack: A Deep Dive Into Cinema’s Sinister Obsession

Sarah Myles has a close encounter with the shark movie genre…

Movie trends ebb and flow, with thematically similar stories washing through our cinemas at regular intervals. War films, biopics, westerns, slasher movies, ghost stories – each has its season, and they return again and again in cyclical fashion. One trend that seems to be a constant, however, is the shark movie. Indeed, hardly a year goes by without some filmmaker or other telling a tale featuring these mythic marine villains.

It makes sense, because sharks make for excellent villains. Their almost prehistoric nature taps into our most primal fears, and these are then enhanced by the fact that these creatures lurk silently in the depths that represent a territory other than our own. Any encounter with a shark means that we, as humans, are literally and figuratively out of our depth. The water is their space, and we are the invaders.
