True to its sense of outlandishness, Season 3 of Empire opened with a major character death within the first minute. Perhaps you saw this one coming.
CBS’s The Case of: JonBenét Ramsey was remarkable in that its team of investigators outright stated that they believed the six-year-old died at the hands of her then-nine-year-old brother Burke. Though a screen at the end of the series emphasized that the crime is yet unsolved and its investigators were simply…
As entirely expected, though surprisingly early, FX has renewed its two popular new series Atlanta and Better Things for second seasons after just two weeks on air, thanks to great receptions and ratings.
Television, in the past few years, has in large part catered to terrible people. Anti-heroes are cheerfully celebrated, and shows like You’re the Worst, Difficult People, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, UnReal and so on spotlight the worst of humanity. Morally ambiguous characters rule, and on reality TV disastrous…
In an apparent effort to capitalize on Hillary Clinton’s weekend collapse, Donald Trump promised to appear on television with noted quack Dr. Oz this week to go over the results of his most recent medical exam. For some undisclosed reason, that’s not happening anymore.
Other than cunt-gate, it’s taken the ladies of Orange County some time to warm up this season. However, like seasons past, all you need is a traumatic event or a health crisis to get things back on that magnificently crazed track.
Queen Sugar, adapted from Natalie Baszile’s novel by Ava DuVernay and executive produced by Oprah Winfrey, debuted last night on OWN. A second episode airs tonight, as part of a two-part premiere, and I’m so impatient I can barely stand it.
In the premiere of Donald Glover’s FX series Atlanta, a deliberate anti-show, his broke, industrious protagonist Earnest Marks tries to gain a favor from a white friend who works at a local radio station. Failing at the power of persuasion, Earnest tells Dave, “I’m not ‘every dude,’” a statement we know to be false.…
It’d be great if Hollywood left well enough alone, but because I’m not in charge and other people ostensibly are, a new Heathers anthology TV show is getting a pilot for TV Land.
Very Specific Playlists is a recurring feature in which Jezebel staffers make very specific Spotify playlists based on their weird proclivities.
Kerry Washington is working behind the camera on a non-Scandal drama about the LAPD as part of her recent development deal with ABC.
As much as we’re taught to crave comfort, we’re also taught to fear it. While it comes with feelings of safety, it also can mean stagnation, boredom, or—even worse—becoming boring yourself. So what, then, does comfort mean for You’re the Worst, a sitcom conceptualized around two people falling in love despite their…
The creatively titled Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After, featuring former Bachelor Ben Higgins and his bride-to-be Lauren Bushnell, premieres on ABC subsidiary Freeform on October 11. It looks so...interesting!
The post-People vs. O.J. Simpson Marcia Clark renaissance continues. NBC has committed to a pilot based on her book Blood Defense. Rather than yet another true crime franchise—which God knows we should’ve maxed out on, at this point—it’ll be a legal drama/procedural.
Tuesday night, every Season 2 contestant on RuPaul’s All-Stars Drag Race filed into a screening room in Manhattan’s Crosby Street Hotel and made her case for why she should win. Most were keeping focused and internally grounded—the Vegas queen Coco Montrese said she’d learned on her Season 5 stint that she was only…
As any casual fan of the Real Housewives franchise can tell you, a vow renewal is the kiss of death to most marriages featured on the show. Vicki and Donn, Ramona and Mario, Peter and Cynthia, and more have all renewed their vows on air. They’ve also all gotten divorced.
Poldark returns soon (in the UK, at least) and judging from this trailer, season two brings domestic turmoil, legal troubles, beachside horseback riding and—most importantly—smoldering, sweaty, shirtless mining. Yes, fine, that is acceptable in lieu of scything.
As was reported back in January, there’s a new Anne of Green Gables adaptation in the works, from the CBC and Breaking Bad writer Moira Walley-Beckett. Now Netflix says they’re picking it up for audiences in America and elsewhere around the world. A celebratory round of raspberry cordial for everyone!
When it comes to the children of the Real Housewives franchise, many are adored and some are despised, but none are as feared and respected as Milania Giudice of New Jersey. Welcome to Catching Up with Milania, where every week, we—as tribute—will be checking in with my hero, Bravo’s dreaded daughter.
I don’t know about you, but I’m all hopped up on LIFE following Wednesday night’s Real Housewives of New York, which saw LuAnn going full Countess Crackerjacks after Bethenny revealed that she has a photo of Lu’s fiancé Tom pulling a Hannibal Lecter (but, like, with tongue) on a Playmate’s face at the New York Regency…
