‘The Simpsons’ is old. It’s been airing on Fox since 1989; 26 seasons of Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie and counting. For point of reference, for something to have been in its 26th season on the air in 1989, it would have had to debut in 1963, the year President Kennedy was assassinated. The show’s longevity is just insane.

NBC’s darkly delicious ‘Hannibal’ has always proven a delectable course in winter or spring, but the third season entree will have to wait a bit longer.

Actors! They're weird! Johnny Depp may be one of Hollywood's brightest stars, but that doesn't mean he's immune to the weirdness of artistry -- in fact, Depp has kind of gone whole hog on this being "out there" thing, and it's very much a part of his process as an actor. Considering his box office cache and personal success, yeah, it's worked for him.

Jimmy Fallon and Gwyneth Paltrow Give the Broadway Treatment to Hip Hop Jams

by Kate Erbland January 15, 2015 @ 9:45 AM
Of course, the real joke of 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon's adoration for translating current rap and hip hop songs into Broadway versions is simple, it's in the text. It's current songs made into Broadway versions. Easy! But the difference between an okay "Broadway covers" sketch and a great one is how much Fallon and his chosen guest sell it.

‘American Horror Story: Freak Show’ Review: “Show Stoppers”

by Britt Hayes January 14, 2015 @ 11:05 PM
For four seasons now, without fail, the penultimate episode of ‘American Horror Story’ has always delivered. Tonight’s episode of ‘Freak Show’ is no different, except in that it stumbles perhaps more than the others, the dark humor and melodrama wrestling with the horror in ways that can be a little jarring—and not in a great way. But “Show Stoppers” does feature at least a couple of show-stopping numbers, and it’s the kind of stuff that our old pal Dr. Hans Gruber’s dreams are made of.
