  • Daytime TV is embracing black entertainers; prime time, less so

    Pynchon stalkers: Have you seen this man?

  • Emmy red carpet: Winning the gown wars

    Emmy red carpet: Winning the gown wars
    When the dust settled after last spring's red carpet season, two of Los Angeles' most familiar hometown designers were christened, somewhat surprisingly, award show "phenoms." In actuality, David Meister and Tadashi Shoji have been prominent fixtures on...
  • Film Review: 'Turbo'

    In DreamWorks Animation's winsome toon "Turbo," a junior speed maven dreams of competing in the Indianapolis 500. There's just one small problem: He's a snail. Closer in spirit to Pixar's "Ratatouille" than anything the folks at DWA have yet made, this...
  • Film Review: 'Grown Ups 2'

    The first scene in "Grown Ups 2" depicts a deer urinating directly onto Adam Sandler's face. The penultimate scene (spoiler alert) depicts the very same deer apparently castrating Taylor Lautner. These bookends are not only the film's highlights, they...
  • Elmo gets new format as “Sesame Street” begins Season 43

     
    The beloved and influential children's series Sesame Street begins its 43rd season Monday, Sept. 24, on PBS (check local listings for the exact time and channel in your area). While much of what has made the show so impactful and important will remain &#...
  • “Up All Night” makes head-scratching decision to switch to multicamera format

     
    With its decision to switch from the more cinematic single-camera format to the traditional multicamera, the NBC sitcom Up All Night seems to be making a statement of some kind. A bewildering, random and somewhat off-putting statement, but a statement...
  • Let's all play 'Hollywood Game Night'!

    Let's all play 'Hollywood Game Night'!
    NBC's new "Hollywood Game Night" had me at Jane Lynch. At this point it's easier to name the projects she hasn't starred or guest-starred on ("Game of Thrones"? "The Real Housewives of Orange County"?), but as far as I know, she's never done a game...
  • Box Office: 'Grown Ups 2′ Poised to Trounce Still-Softly Tracking 'Pacific Rim'

    Box office chatter this week has mostly revolved around "Pacific Rim," and yet the pricey monster pic could land at No. 3 domestically this weekend, with holdover toon "Despicable Me 2" and "Grown Ups 2," one of the most critically savaged films this...
  • 'Grown Ups 2' review: This is the end

    'Grown Ups 2' review: This is the end
    Zero stars (out of four) You know what? No. I won't list a lot of the jokes in “Grown Ups 2” because pathetic cracks about Chia pets and “Droolio Iglesias” speak for themselves. I won't describe all the ways the characters mock...
  • Review: 'Grown Ups 2' refuses to leave the sandbox

    Review: 'Grown Ups 2' refuses to leave the sandbox
    It is just a few minutes into "Grown Ups 2" when star Adam Sandler is peed on in the face by a deer. How one feels about that — is it funny, is it cheap, is it a weird curiosity? — will likely be an accurate litmus test for responses to the...
  • Bill Hader: Kristen Wiig returning to host “SNL” will be “a blast”

     
    Kristen Wiig will be back on Saturday Night Live this week as host, and her old co-star Bill Hader couldn't be happier. “That's going to be a blast,” he said in a phone interview last week. “I love it when old cast members come back...
