Bill Nye the Science Guy doesn’t believe that a gargantuan wooden boat filled with pairs of wild animals once floated across a flood that covered the entire earth. So this week, he went to visit the people who do – and the boat they built to prove it. Nye was the first high-profile visitor to “Ark […]

Why stupid bro-comedies might be the best thing for Zac Efron’s career

There was a time when Zac Efron was only known for his teen-friendly films, smooth dance moves and Bieber-esque hair (before Justin Bieber was actually a thing). But throw a rock these days and it’d be hard to miss an Efron role in the latest bro-comedy. In this weekend’s “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates,” Efron adds another […]

Sulu is gay in the next “Star Trek” movie. George Takei isn’t happy about that.

In less than two weeks, “Star Trek Beyond” will hit theaters with a bombshell: the series’ first openly gay character. As it happens, it’s someone that longtime fans already know and love: Helmsman Hikaru Sulu, the character played by George Takei in the original 1960’s television series and, later, in seven “Star Trek” movies.

Kim Kardashian West: ‘I want my children to grow up knowing that their lives matter.’

Kim Kardashian West has two children with her husband, Kanye West: North, 3, and Saint, 7 months. And in response to two fatal police shootings of black men this week, she posted an essay, writing, “I want my children to grow up knowing that their lives matter.” “I do not ever want to have to teach my son to […]

The video of Alton Sterling’s son is the one you should watch

When the news conference began, he was standing next to his mother. As she spoke to the media about the Baton Rouge police shooting of his father, Alton Sterling, 37, their son had his arm wrapped around her shoulders in the protective gesture of an adult. At 15, Cameron stands taller than his mother, Quinyetta McMillon. He […]

You can be disappointed about a delayed ‘Game of Thrones.’ But it’s a good sign for TV.

You’re going to have to wait a little longer than usual for the next season of “Game of Thrones.” Since Winter is no longer Coming — it’s officially here — the scenery has to reflect the cooler temps. That means shooting will take place during the dreariest months rather than sticking to the usual schedule, […]

‘It’s too much': D.L. Hughley gets emotional talking about police shootings on CNN

Comedian D.L. Hughley was in tears during a CNN interview Thursday morning after two black men were fatally shot by police officers less than 48 hours apart. “I just do not understand.

Farewell ‘Royal Pains’ and hello ‘Mr. Robot': USA’s era of ‘blue sky shows’ is over

USA’s “Royal Pains” aired its series finale Wednesday after a solid eight-season run. But unlike most mediocre cable dramas that end these days, this one has an extra significance: With the departure of “Royal Pains,” USA is one step closer to officially slamming the door on its “blue skies” era, which has defined the network for the last decade. For […]

Margot Robbie finally explains what went wrong with ‘Pan Am’

Vanity Fair’s new cover profile on Margot Robbie is getting a lot of attention on social media thanks to its ruminations on the 26-year-old actress, the blonde “girl next door” with “painfully blue” eyes who is tall, but only in the right pair of shoes. Just read it. However, buried in the story, Robbie helpfully gives some answers […]

Is this video of George Hamilton eating fried chicken giving you a tingling feeling?

In case it isn’t on your calendar already: Wednesday is National Fried Chicken Day, and Kentucky Fried Chicken wants you to celebrate by watching a video featuring the legendary George Hamilton like you’ve never seen him before — in the role of Colonel Sanders, wherein he whispers sweet nothings about pocket squares and noisily devours a […]

Yet another way fashion is unfair to plus-size women — and one entrepreneur’s solution.

Fashion runs by its own special rules. And those rules have never been fair to plus-size women. Those who are larger than the arbitrary size 12 have fewer choices. Even celebrities whose hips are beyond the range of sample sizes are begrudged all the freebies and fawning that greet their thinner colleagues. Seventh Avenue may […]

The weird thing Tom Cruise does during interviews, and other revelations from a celebrity reporter

We know you’re angry — but PBS did the right thing to ‘fake’ their fireworks

Fireworks on television have one job: To be beautiful. So it’s not exactly surprising that — when faced with the foggy, overcast weather in Washington on Monday night — producers of PBS’s “A Capitol Fourth” concert and fireworks special edited the live broadcast to include stock footage of previously recorded fireworks, which showed a glorious display bursting […]

PBS used some stock footage for its fireworks show, and people were not happy

If you were watching Washington’s Fourth of July fireworks outside on Monday night and also happened to catch PBS’s broadcast of “A Capitol Fourth,” you might have noticed something looked…a little off. The actual weather in Washington was cloudy and misty, making it quite difficult to view the fireworks display. But on “A Capitol Fourth,” the annual […]

This isn’t the first time Kenny Chesney fans have (literally) trashed Pittsburgh

The army of tank tops and flip-flops arrived by bus, boat and truck. Their battle cry was the crunch of an empty beer can, the belch of a full belly. Some had tickets to the main event. Most were just there for the party. Kenny Chesney, the man at the center of the drinking-palooza, likes to call […]

Why ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ is one of those rare movies that’s better than the book

“The Devil Wears Prada,” the hit movie based on the bestselling book by Lauren Weisberger, was released in theaters 10 years ago this week. Given that the film version eventually became a box office smash, people have a lot of things to say about this anniversary. Of all the pieces written over the past week, the most […]

Jessica Williams said goodbye to “The Daily Show” Thursday night, signing off with a segment about Bernie Sanders supporters whose dislike for Hillary Clinton runs so deep they’ve decided to vote for Trump.
