‘Scandal’ recap Season 4, Episode 15: ‘The testimony of Diego Muñoz’

Allergy season, am I right? This week’s “Scandal” had some really beautiful scenes that tugged at the heartstrings. Olivia’s neighbor, Lois, was finally given a proper sendoff. And Huck was forced to confront his past and what B613 did to his family. Susan Ross, quirky senator and Mellie’s pet project, was there to help lighten the […]

Kate Middleton visited the set of ‘Downton Abbey’ and everyone freaked out

  Must be nice being a princess — a couple phone calls and you can just hang out on the London set of your favorite TV show.

Andy Samberg will host the Emmy Awards this year

Andy Samberg is getting a shot at the big leagues: The former “Saturday Night Live” performer and star of comedy “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” will host the 2015 Emmy Awards, which will air on Fox this year.

Why Marla Gibbs of ‘Scandal’ and ‘The Jeffersons’ won’t tell you her age

“Where’s the black lady?” With those four words, veteran actress Marla Gibbs may have carved out her place as the fan favorite guest star of “Scandal’s” fourth season. (Sorry, Lena Dunham.) Gibbs’s repertoire spans stage, film and television, but she’s probably best known for charming audiences on “The Jeffersons” and “227.” The Emmy-nominated actress also has a […]

Luke Bryan’s “Spring Break” days are over. Can the Prince of Bro Country please grow up now?

Modern country music stars love reliving high school and college glory days (see any Kenny Chesney song), but Luke Bryan really loves it.

He belts out […]

April’s Hayes Awards to be at Lincoln Theatre

Two bits of news about the Helen Hayes Awards on April 6: It won’t be an open bar party like last year’s event in the National Building Museum’s atrium. Back into the theater, everyone! In this case — the Lincoln Theater on U Street NW, with the cast party at the nearby Howard Theater. “Last […]

The blurred lines of the “Blurred Lines” verdict

Will Madonna sue Lady Gaga? Will George Clinton sue OutKast? Will Prince sue Bruno Mars, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake and umpteen-hundred others? And then will Little Richard sue Prince? These idiotic questions became frighteningly legitimate on Tuesday after a federal jury in Los Angeles ruled that singer Robin Thicke and producer Pharrell Williams, had committed copyright […]

Recap of ‘Justified’: ‘Dark as a Dungeon’

Fist-fights! Death-dealin’ dudes! Treacherous wimmin’! Pickup trucks, pistols and bourbon! When “Justified” is good, it’s as good as anything its creator and spiritual guiding force, Elmore Leonard, ever put on screen (and heck, maybe on paper), and “Dark as a Dungeon,” this week’s episode, is a diamond-cut gem.

“The truth will set you free, but first it turns you inside out.” That nugget of wisdom — Spencer’s take on Jason’s frustration with the judicial process — could be a metaphor for “Pretty Little Liars” and the winding road of secrets that have led us to this point — a mere episode away from finding out A’s identity.
