See the caucus that was held in someone’s living room

While many Iowa caucuses these days are held at big glamorous school gymnasiums, at least five are still held in private homes.

Is there anything Fox’s fabulous ‘Grease: Live’ didn’t have? Yes: Libido.

Fox’s impressive and ambitious staging Sunday night of “Grease: Live” was a lesson in what a televised musical ought to look like in the 21st century: able to keep all eyes on the screen rather than the Twitter feed.

‘Downton Abbey’ recap: A shocking and disturbing dinner scene

What in the world just happened? “Downton Abbey,” a dramedy of manners, the most proper show on television, just took a blood-soaked turn into “Game of Thrones” territory.

The Oscar race just got more complicated. At the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Saturday, journalism drama “Spotlight” took home the trophy for ensemble cast in a motion picture, the biggest prize of the night.

What we learned from the giant list of 1,400 TV shows last year
