My 5: Pop Culture Moments That Shaped 'Conversations With People Who Hate Me' Host Dylan Marron (Exclusive)

My 5: Pop Culture Moments That Shaped 'Conversations With People Who Hate Me' Host Dylan Marron (Exclusive)
Most people want to run away from comment sections and bullies (and the bullies in comment sections), but Dylan Marron isn't most people.

The New York-based writer and performer may be best known as the voice of Carlos in the beloved mystery podcast, Welcome to Night Vale, but as the host of his very own podcast, Conversations With People Who Hate Me, Marron is taking a break from fictional narratives to, as the title suggests, take on his haters.

"Online comment sections feel like a microcosm of our current political climate. As a writer and performer whose work exists mostly on the Internet, I would get a ton of hate messages and comments," Marron tells Et. "Initially, I wanted to just block out the negativity, but as I realized that (some of) these negative comments were opportunities for actual conversation, I didn't want to keep turning these people away from my digital front door. So I let some

How Rosie O'Donnell Helped Kree Get Her Start

How Rosie O'Donnell Helped Kree Get Her Start
Kree Harrison may be vying to win "American Idol," but the Fox reality competition series is hardly the 22-year-old Texas native's first time at the rodeo.

At the age of eight, Harrison was chosen to perform on "The Rosie O'Donnell Show" and Kree impressed the talk show host with her voice and her manners, responding to all her questions with "Yes ma'am." Kree appeared as a guest on the show numerous times by the time she was 12.

During her first apperance, Kree donned a zebra-printed cowboy hat and sang Martina McBride's "A Broken Wing." She adorably told O'Donnell, "I hope to be the youngest country music singer and it'd be such an honor to sing at the Grand Ole Opry."

Kree also appeared in an episode with Joanna "JoJo" Levesque, who became a teen pop sensation with her hit "Leave (Get Out)." Kree sang "Unchained Melody" and, afterwards, she

The 5 Biggest Problems with Oprah's Network

The Oprah Winfrey Network is a sprawling entrepreneurial effort by a woman who some consider to be the greatest pop cuture icon of all time. That begs the question, "So why don't I ever care to watch it?" I'm not necessarily the biggest Oprah fan on the planet, but you'd think her enormous influence would coerce me into a couple of Lifeclasses. I'm gay and stuff. I could dig it, right?

That hasn't been the case. Recently, Opra admitted in an interview with CBS that if she wrote a book about the Own Network, it'd be called 101 Mistakes. That's a little overzealous, I think. If you subtracted 96 mistakes from that book and highlighted the following five issues, you'd uncover the network's true woes.

1. Oprah should never reduce herself to the 50+ demographic.

And now, a comprehensive catalog of The Oprah Winfrey Network's offerings: hour-long Master Class monologues by orators ranging from Ted Turner to Goldie Hawn,

Rosie O'Donnell's Own show canceled after 5 months

Rosie O'Donnell is yet again a talk show host without a home. On Friday (March 16), Own announced that the final episode of "The Rosie Show" is slated to air on March 30.

"I thank Rosie from the bottom of my heart for joining me on this journey.  She has been an incredible partner, working to deliver the best possible show every single day," says Oprah Winfrey in a statement. "As I have learned in the last 15 months, a new network launch is always a challenge and ratings grow over time as you continue to gather an audience.  I'm grateful to Rosie and the dedicated Rosie Show team for giving it their all."

"I loved working with Oprah in the amazing city of Chicago," says O'Donnell. "I was welcomed with open arms and will never forget the kindness of all I encountered. It was a great year for me -- I wish

Rosie O'Donnell Talks Own Show And Love Life

Rosie O'Donnell Talks Own Show And Love Life
Rosie O'Donnell has a new show on Own and just announced her engagement to girlfriend Michelle Rounds, but the TV personality is still the caustic, hilarious and honest Rosie we've come to know. O'Donnell sat down with The Huffington Post to talk about "The Rosie Show," her new love life and and how her kids are doing these days.

"The Rosie Show" isn't a regular talk show. What makes it so different?

We don't really have pre-interviews. When you have a guest on another show, usually the guest tells them whatever stories they have and the host sets them up to tell their stories. We give general areas like, "We're going to talk about divorce or dieting. Is there any area you don't want to discuss?" Initially, some of the producers here were like, "What's going to happen?" And I told them, "What's going to happen is we're maybe going

Rosie O'Donnell graces the cover of "O" with Oprah

Oprah sure does love her gay gals. With the exception of First Lady Michelle Obama, Oprah has only shared the cover of her magazine with lesbians — first with Ellen DeGeneres in December 2009, and now with Rosie O'Donnell in this month's issue.

Rosie gave O, The Oprah Magazine a candid interview, in which she discussed coming out, and her very public marriage and divorce from Kelli Carpenter. She says the only people who didn't know she was a lesbian during her wildly successful talk show run "were the audience." And that splitting from Carpenter was both "humbling" and "humiliating," as she is the first person in the O'Donnell family to ever get a divorce.

[We were so different.] She wanted to play tennis at the country club, and I don’t do country clubs. I tried. They made an exception for a gay family, and we joined. It was a big thing: "They let in a gay family – whoo!

Daytime Emmys battle between 'Ellen' and 'Rachael Ray': Round 5

Daytime Emmys battle between 'Ellen' and 'Rachael Ray': Round 5
GoldDerby had access to the sample episodes submitted to Daytime Emmy voters, and forums poster jcar thinks “Rachael Ray” will pull off a narrow victory for Best Talk Show (Entertainment) against last year's champ “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” The Best Talk Show race has historically favored repeat winners. “Donahue” won six times in nine years (1978-1981, 1985, 1986). Then “The Oprah Winfrey Show” prevailed a remarkable nine times between 1987 and 1997, losing only twice (to “Sally Jesse Raphael” in 1990 and “Good Morning America” in 1993). After “Oprah” removed her show from contention, “The Rosie O'Donnell Show” followed with five consecutive wins (1998-2002). “Ellen” seem poised to dominate the category indefinitely, winning for its first four years (2004-2007).Then in 2008, the TV Academy split the talk show category into two separate races – one ...

Rosie O'Donnell Returns to Daytime Talk on Oprah's Own Network
Filed under: TV News

Since she left her slot as one of the hosts of 'The View' back in 2007, Rosie O'Donnell has been looking for a new venue to make her return to television. She even went so far as to join up with syndicated show veterans Dick Robertson and Scott Carlin to create a new daytime talker.

Now, thanks to Oprah Winfrey, all her hard work is paying off.

Deadline Hollywood reports that Oprah has purchased O'Donnell's talk show for her Own cable network. Premiering in 2011, the program will mark a return to the happy and fun Rosie that viewers remember from her days on 'The Rosie O'Donnell Show' back in the 1990s. This will be a change for O'Donnell, who has shown a darker, more controversial side to her personality since she left her program in 2002.

Oprah's Own Picks Up Rosie Daytime Talk

Four months ago, Rosie O'Donnell, who hosted the syndicated The Rosie O'Donnell Show and did a stint on ABC's The View, teamed with syndication veterans Dick Robertson and Scott Carlin for a new syndicated daytime talk show. Now they have found a buyer, Oprah Winfrey's upstart cable network Own, a co-venture with Discovery Communications. Interesting move by Winfrey, who once competed with O'Donnell for the title of daytime talk show queen at the height of The Rosie O'Donnell Show in the late 1990s. O'Donnell is a polarizing figure with strong political views and aggressive style who had previously indicated that she planned to stay true to herself on her new show. So giving her a daily talker on Own, a network built on the premise of inspiring women and helping them better their lives, is somewhat surprising. But the description of the new show supplied by Own seems to
