In early June, the newbie actor Noah Galvin escaped the clutches of his PR team and gave an incendiary interview to Vulture. Galvin is a young gay man, and he had some strong opinions on what constitutes being “out,” the performance of Eric Stonestreet in Modern Family, and Bryan Singer. Those opinions blew up in his…
The fall-out from Russia’s Olympic doping scandal has been coming in bits and pieces, probably because so many governing sports organizations have to test and re-test Russian athletes. The verdict on Olympic swimmers has finally come down, and it’s looking bad for them.
One month ago, executive producer Shonda Rhimes starred in a campaign ad for Hillary Clinton together with Shondaland stars Kerry Washington (Scandal), Ellen Pompeo (Grey’s Anatomy), and Viola Davis (How to Get Away With Murder). Now cast members of Scandal will appear at a Washington D.C. fundraiser for the…
Remember when it came out that former CIA Director David Petraeus was having that extramarital affair with his biographer? And how Jill Kelley supposedly gave him a handjob under the table at the Four Seasons too? Now, she’s writing a book to clear her name (and her hands):
Olivia Pope was shown getting an abortion in last year’s Scandal winter finale. Maybe President Fitz got her pregnant or maybe not. And maybe he’ll find out about it, but Shonda Rhimes’ thinking is: “Does he have to?”
Shondaland will once again remain the most illustrious amalgamation of TV shows in all the land, because all of them have been renewed for another season on ABC.
Greetings, it’s been a minute since we’ve all gathered to willingly and enthusiastically allow Shonda Rhimes to manipulate our feelings and heart rates.
While it wasn’t totally shocking for a Shonda Rhimes show to have an abortion scene, that episode of Scandal last year was a significant moment for primetime TV. Kerry Washington talked about its impact in an interview with WWD this week.
Much of television is written by people who grew up, or at least who have lived the majority of their lives, in a big city—often New York or Los Angeles. For that reason, characters who are culturally not from one of those places are at risk of getting written in broad strokes, becoming caricatures of whatever culture…
Shonda Rhimes is savvy enough to know that merely talking about abortion on TV sets off an explosion of discourse. The abortion storyline is still a nervy move, even today—though it’s becoming less so with shows like Jane the Virgin and Girls having advanced the conversation in recent years. Thursday night’s Scandal…
It’s Scandal time and is there anyone Olivia Pope hasn’t lied to at this point? Looks like we’ll find out tonight. Feel free to throw in your pressing How to Get Away With Murder thoughts here as well!
It’s that time again. Meredith deals with some flashbacks on Grey’s Anatomy, Fitz may be impeached on Scandal and something dark and ominous will (probably) happen on How to Get Away With Murder. Enjoy!
A 20-year-old Iowa college student and real-life gladiator called 911 in the wee hours of Friday morning to report that a) she is Olivia Pope, b) she saw Cyrus Beene, a character on Scandal, outside a bar, and c) there is a bomb headed straight for the White House.
Grey’s Anatomy keeps trucking away, Olivia goes rogue on Scandal and I now realize that we’re not going to know who shot Annalise for quite some time on How to Get Away With Murder. Let’s see how Shonda raises our collective blood pressure tonight.
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy very, very, very abruptly dropped out of the race to become House Speaker just now. Chaos reigns. Gossipers on the right side of the aisle are heavily implying that McCarthy bailed to avoid having an alleged extramarital affair with Congresswoman Renee Ellmers of North Carolina…
Grey’s Anatomy is Grey’s Anatomy, Olivia and Fitz are about to become a national scandal, and on How to Get Away with Murder someone is responsible for (possibly) killing Annalise.
Shondaland, #TGIT, that day of the week where you sit on your couch for three hours straight and subject yourself to the whims of an amazing but dastardly team of writers—whatever you want to call it, is here.
Shonda Season is Back and Scandal, the Crown Jewel (at least ratings-wise) of the kingdom is returning tonight.
In just two weeks, Olivia Pope and her zany crew of justice-keeping assassins returns with the new season of Scandal on September 24. Till then, here’s a not at all ambiguous 30-second trailer. Plus, some predictions.
The Miss America Pageant airs this coming Sunday on ABC, and joining host Chris Harrison, co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet, “Music Curator” Nick Jonas and “celebrity judges” Brett Eldredge, Taya Kyle, Danica McKellar, Kevin O’Leary, Amy Purdy and Zendaya, will be Vanessa Williams. Before she was a famous actress and…
