The actress’ departure deals a particularly tough blow to CBS when one considers that Perrette is the most-liked female primetime star on TV, according to the Q Scores Company.

Christopher Meloni (‘Happy!’) talks playing a hitman with an imaginary friend on dark comedy [Exclusive Video Interview]

Christopher Meloni (‘Happy!’) talks playing a hitman with an imaginary friend on dark comedy [Exclusive Video Interview]
“It is a graphic novel ripped off the pages and presented on film,” actor Christopher Meloni says about his new show “Happy!” in an interview with Gold Derby (watch the exclusive video above). He elaborates, “There are not too many rules. You can get as fantastical as you want, you can get as graphic as you want… and the humor can be really out there and hopefully edgy.”

Meloni plays Nick Sax, who is identified in the series’ trailer as a “degenerate ex-cop hitman.” The show itself is a stylized dark comedy faithfully adapted from the graphic novel of the same name by its author, featuring an imaginary anthropomorphic blue unicorn in the eponymous role. It might seem to be a surprising vehicle for Meloni, who is best known for his serious turn in “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” for which he received a 2006 Emmy nomination for Best Drama Actor,

Mariska Hargitay (‘Law & Order: Svu’) opens up about ‘culture of shame and isolation’ for abuse survivors in new interview
“I think that for so long survivors have been living in a culture of shame and isolation,” reveals “Law & Order: Svu” cast member Mariska Hargitay in a new interview. After playing sex crimes investigator Olivia Benson for so many years, Hargitay tells “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah that fans now feel comfortable sharing their own stories of sexual abuse with her. “I think that this fictionalized character maybe was the first person that showed empathy and compassion, and they knew that Olivia was always for the victim first and felt safe there. Hopefully now that is indeed changing.”

Flashback: NY gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon received her first Emmy from future President Donald Trump [Watch]
Cynthia Nixon, who announced her NY gubernatorial candidacy on Monday, is just missing the Oscar from her Egot quest. She won the first of the top showbiz awards in 2004 for “Sex and the City” and received the statuette from another TV star-turned-politician: Donald Trump.

Remember, this was 2004, aka the height of the popularity of “The Apprentice.” Trump and Simon Cowell presented Nixon with the Best Comedy Supporting Actress Emmy for her portrayal of Miranda Hobbes on the final season of the HBO hit. Last year, Nixon told Variety that she had forgotten about the handoff.

Cynthia Nixon: Emmy, Tony and Grammy champ doesn’t have Oscar yet, but may win NY governor’s race in the meantime
Cynthia Nixon is used to winning votes. The actress has won Emmys, Tonys and a Grammy in her career. All she needs is an Oscar to complete her Egot grand slam of show business awards, but for now she has her sights set on another prize: the New York State governor’s mansion. If she wins that this fall and then eventually claims Oscar, what should we call that — the Gegot? Watch Nixon’s official announcement above.

Nixon will first be running in the Democratic primary against the incumbent Andrew Cuomo, who has been the governor of New York since 2011. “Our leaders are letting us down,” says Nixon in her announcement. “We are now the most unequal state in the entire country with both incredible wealth and extreme poverty … Something has to change … We are sick of politicians who care more about headlines and power than they do about us.
