Jay Thomas, ‘Murphy Brown’ and ‘Cheers’ Actor, Dies at 69
Actor Jay Thomas, best known for his roles in the classic sitcoms “Murphy Brown” and “Cheers,” has died, Variety has confirmed. He was 69.

Jay Thomas was one of the funniest and kindest men I have had the honor to call both client and friend for 25 years-plus,” his publicist Thomas Estey told Variety. “He will be dearly missed by so many.”

According to The New York Daily News, which first reported the news, Thomas died following a battle with cancer. No other details were immediately available about the circumstances of his death.

Vampire Diaries Recap: 'Mommy's Friend'

Vampire Diaries Recap: 'Mommy's Friend'
Friday’s Vampire Diaries, which gets my vote for the best episode of the season (so far), felt like a true return to form for the seven-year-old series: It was funny, heartbreaking, exciting… and, uh, can we talk about those last seven words?

The series, which deals with the daily trials and tribulations of being a movie usher Ronnell (played by Banks) in a multiplex movie theater, is a re-edited and re-tooled version of a feature that Banks created.

Lindsay Lohan will appear on 'Watch What Happens Live'. Let's plan the games!
For a very specific demographic, the ultimate news was just announced: Lindsay Lohan will appear on Watch What Happens Live! The episode will air next Thursday, April 17, EW has confirmed.

“This one is a long time coming. We love Lindsay and plan to celebrate the s@%# out of her!” host/executive producer Andy Cohen told E!.

Fans of the show know this has the potential to be quite the memorable episode. Not only is the live program proudly booze-soaked (a tradition they will obviously (right?) forgo for the evening), but the program’s cheeky charm thrives on Cohen asking the guests just-this-side-of-inappropriate questions.

The Simpsons Review: “Labor Pains” (Season 25, Episode 5)

It’s perhaps the worst kept secret in TV that Homer is a terrible father, but in the latest episode of The Simpsons, Homer finally learns what it means to be a good father, at least for this week.

In this week’s episode, Homer spins a tissue of lies that allows him to play cards with the guys at Karl’s house while telling Marge that he has to work late. On his way home, Homer encounters Karl’s neighbour, Gretchen (special guest voice Elisabeth Moss), and is forced to deliver her baby when the power goes out, stranding them in the elevator. Homer develops an attachment to the baby, who Gretchen names Homer Junior (finally, Homer has someone to call HoJu!), and despite Marge’s shock and anger that Homer has a new family on the side, she can’t dispute the effect that HoJu has on the big guy.

The Canyons Talking Points: 10 Things You Need To Know

Since the very first day director Paul Schrader (American Gigolo) and author Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho, The Rules Of Attraction) announced on Kickstarter they were making a film, the Internet has been dying to know: ‘What exactly is The Canyons?’ Of course things only got more complicated as the year went on. Porn star James Deen was named the headlining star, Lindsay Lohan had been baited to join the cast, The New York Times wrote a thoroughly juicy profile on the film and it was rejected from Sundance. Things went from interesting, to weird, to bad news bears in less than a year but now, it’s here. The Canyons has finally arrived, for better or worse, and these are the ten things you need to know before seeing it.

Katie Holmes Gets Wet On Set Of New Movie

Katie Holmes Gets Wet On Set Of New Movie
Katie Holmes has maintained a relatively low-key persona in the aftermath of her divorce from Tom Cruise last summer, but now she's getting back to business with her first movies since 2011's "Jack and Jill" and the ReelzChannel miniseries "The Kennedys." Photos from the set of one of those movies -- the upcoming "Mania Days" -- have surfaced, featuring Holmes dashing through a fountain with co-star Luke Kirby while clad in a wet T-shirt.

"Mania Days" depicts two manic depressives who meet in a psychiatric ward and embark on a romance. The movie is written and directed by Paul Dalio, who made his feature-film debut with the 2012 Bulgarian movie "Faith, Love and Whiskey." Spike Lee serves as a producer.

Grey's Anatomy Sneak Peeks: Keep the Tiny Human Makers Happy

  • TVfanatic
The superstorm is coming to Seattle, and the impact is sure to be wide-ranging.

In the Grey's Anatomy Season 9 finale, Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital enters crisis mode as resources become scarce, patients flood in by the busload and the panic level becomes palpable.

In the first clip from the episode released by ABC, we see tensions rise as evacuations are halted and Arizona tries to keep people from freaking out ... while looking a little freaked herself.

Alex, meanwhile, asks for backup in the Nicu given the shortages of staff. Given the events of last week, Arizona clearly has more on her mind than just keeping tiny human makers calm.

Check out the scene from "Perfect Storm" and share your comments below:

Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss Will Guest-Star on The Simpsons Next Fall
The Simpsons is welcoming another member of the Mad Man cast to Springfield: Elisabeth Moss will voice a character on Fox's animated classic this fall, Vulture can exclusively report. According to showrunner Al Jean, "She'll play a character stuck in an elevator who gives birth to a baby. She names it Homer, Jr." (Peggy Olson is pregnant again!) For you detailed-oriented Simpsons diehards, the episode's title is "Labor Pains," Moss's character is named "Gretchen," and Fox is tentatively scheduled to broadcast the episode on November 13 as part of the show's 25th season. The Simpsons long ago established its love for Mad Men: Both Jon Hamm and John Slattery have lent their voices to the show, while this 2008 parody of the AMC drama's opening credits was pretty much perfect.
