In a recent interview with Vulture, The Traitors star Kate Chastain talked about, among other things, her on-screen feud with fellow contestant, Rachel Reilly. "I absolutely was blinded by my hatred of Rachel Reilly and focused on her too much as a traitor," said Kate, who'd starred on Bravo's Below Deck before being cast in the Peacock reality competition. "I also said, 'You know what? I don’t even care if you’re a traitor. I find you offensive, and I would like you to go.'"
The View can get heated and loud at the Hot Topics table, but an especially unusual noise interrupted yesterday’s broadcast, much to the surprise of viewers and the co-hosts themselves. During a political debate on the Wednesday (Jan. 25) show, Whoopi Goldberg and her View co-stars were interrupted by what can only be described as a fart sound. The flatulent interruption came at a rather inappropriate time as the panel discussed the recent discovery of classified documents in the home of former vice president Mike Pence. While they raised concerns about nuclear secrets floating around outside of the White House (as is rumored...
Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes are officially out at GMA3, and while several scandals regarding Holmes have surfaced from the investigation into their alleged extramarital affair, according to a source, ABC had only petty and largely unfounded complaints when it came to their reasons for ousting Robach. "Everything they are bringing up is so minor having to do with Amy," a source spilled of ABC's contentious mediation with the couple. One of the odd complaints cited was that Robach had allegedly once come to work drunk — an accusation the insider claimed was untrue and that she had simply been...
There are a lot of jerks in All Creatures Great and Small. There are some world-class manipulators, too, and more than a few fussbudgets. These rabble rousers pop up at least once an episode, hurling their insults and raising their voices, and they force the nicer characters to respond. So even though it deserves its reputation for incredible kindness, it’s not entirely accurate to characterize the series as some kind of weighted blanket, wrapping us in the warmth of pastoral beauty and small-town geniality. In fact, the meanness keeps the show chugging along.
It's the end of an era for Grey's Anatomy. Longtime star Ellen Pompeo will say goodbye to the show that defined her career when Grey's returns from hiatus on Thursday, February 23, ABC confirmed during a presentation at the Television Critics Association 2023 Winter Press Tour. In the episode, titled...
MGM+ is poised for a big winter and spring, complete with a rebrand and a host of major premieres. During a presentation at the Television Critics Association 2023 Winter Press Tour, the premium channel and streaming service previously known as Epix announced it will debut British thriller A Spy Among Friends, starring Damian Lewis and Guy Pearce, true-crime docuseries Murf the Surf, and From Season 2 in the coming months.
Tattoos are always metaphors. When something is permanently inscribed on the body, it tells a story, and it invites anyone who looks to interpret that story for themselves. That’s why ink can be so powerful: It suggests who we are beneath our skin. No wonder horror TV shows have...
Fresh off helping Dave Bautista solve Fibonacci riddles in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Story, Jackie Hoffman, New York theater actress extraordinaire, is now lecturing the young women of Rydell High on proper behavior in Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies. Paramount+ debuted the teaser trailer today at the show's panel at the Television Critics Association 2023 winter press tour. Hoffman's Principal McGee isn't the lead of the new series — that would be the titular Pink Ladies, Jane (Marisa Davila), Olivia (Cheyenne Isabel Wells), Cynthia (Ari Notartomaso), and Nancy (Tricia Fukuhara) — but her warning that "a girl's reputation is all that she has" certainly puts her at odds with the burgeoning bad girls of Rydell.
What is it about the inherent shallowness of Bravo's Real Housewives franchise that accommodates close readings so well? Perhaps it's the low stakes that make it so much fun to dissect Lisa Rinna throwing a drink at Kim Richards (or Aviva Drescher throwing her leg onto a table) as if it's the Zapruder film. What's even better than dissecting the Housewives moments that were more likely to go viral — fights, revelations, fights — is dissecting the ones that went viral for being just plain bizarre. Because, as much as Housewives is a soap opera about social climbing by combat, it's also a comedy about the ludicrous lives of the filthy rich. Which brings us to the moment we're talking about today: the time on The Real Housewives of Potomac when Karen and Gizelle's sit-down argument was derailed by the presence of a mime.

Some of the brightest minds in animation join forces with A-list stars in Hulu’s new comedy series Koala Man. Created by Michael Cusack, who also voices the titular hero, Koala Man follows a middle-aged dad who adopts a new identity and sets out to protect his hometown of Dapto from threats big and small, from supernatural creatures to neighbors who forget trash day.
Not many people can land a TV deal while on house arrest, but famed con artist Anna Sorokin (aka Anna Delvey) has proven that if anyone can do it, she can. Variety reports that a new unscripted series starring Sorokin called Delvey’s Dinner Club is currently in the works. The project comes courtesy of Butternut, former Food Network president Courtney White’s lifestyle and entertainment media company. In a statement Sorokin said, “I’m grateful for the opportunity to work with Wheelhouse and Butternut to bring my vision to a wider audience and share a glimpse of the real Anna Delvey.”
In just over two minutes, the trailer for the upcoming Apple TV+ series Dear Edward makes you one solemn promise: it's going to make you cry. Apple debuted a handful of trailers at its presentation for the Television Critics Association on Wednesday, but Dear Edward definitely packed the biggest emotional wallop. Based on Ann Napolitano's best-selling novel, Dear Edward comes to Apple from Jason Katims, who previously cracked the code on delivering sentimental-yet-substantive TV with Friday Night Lights and Parenthood. And when it came to casting the show, it seems he didn't fool around, choosing to reunite with FNL star Connie Britton.
It's been a long, snowy hiatus for the characters on Yellowjackets, stuck in the frigid and terrifying confines of their memories of being stranded in the wilderness after a plane crash. Something happened in those woods, and the Season 2 teaser that was just released promises we're going to get closer to finding out the whole story of what that was.
The only question about Wednesday getting a second season was what was taking Netflix so long to announce it. After debuting in November to huge viewership — according to Netflix, the show has crossed the billion-hours viewed mark and ranks as the #2 most watched U.S. show on the platform ever, after Season 4 of Stranger Things — the Addams Family reimagining was a virtual lock to return. That announcement is now official, coming via a video where star Jenna Ortega, in character as the dark and dour title character, thanks the viewers for the exquisite torture of all this attention.
On January 6, RuPaul’s Drag Race hits the pavement for its 15th season with its largest cast in herstory, a new home on MTV, and special returning guest judge Ariana Grande. As one of the most lip synced artists, behind only Britney Spears and RuPaul herself, Grande is intertwined with the show. Drag Race and Grande became juggernauts of pop culture around the same time, creating a special alchemy of music, drag, and pop stardom. Over the years, Grande’s music has become a fixture in the franchise, providing the soundtrack for some of the series' most memorable moments.

Why Night Court? Out of all the long-running sitcoms that NBC could have rebooted in 2023 — like Cheers, say, or Family Ties – why is the network revisiting a show that has been half-forgotten by the generation that grew up with it and has likely gone unseen by the young people of today? Yes, the original ran for nine seasons from 1984 to 1992, paired with Cheers in its first year and Seinfeld in its last, but it hasn’t stuck around in pop culture the way its old time-slot partners have. Is this revamp just a name recognition thing? Is it a ploy to give the old-timers who watched the series in its first run — and who still watch network TV today — something that feels familiar?
Many know the story of Anne Frank, but few know the story of Miep Gies, the woman who helped hide the Franks and later found Anne's diary, preserving it so that it could be shared with the world. This spring, Disney+ and National Geographic will finally offer a window into Gies' heroism in A Small Light, an eight-episode limited series starring Bel Powley (The Morning Show) as Gies and Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan) as Otto Frank, Anne's father.
