Sean Spicer to Compete on ‘Dancing With the Stars’
ABC will assist in the rehabilitation of former White House Press Secretary and known liar Sean Spicer by allowing him to compete on Dancing With the Stars.

Spicer served as President Donald Trump’s press secretary for the first six months of his presidency, during which he lied about Trump’s inauguration crowd size and repeated Trump’s false claim that Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower. He also infamously claimed Adolf Hitler “didn’t even sink to using chemical weapons,” and upon the release of the Mueller Report, it was

Politics are Tearing Apart America, But Hollywood Execs Still Don’t Seem to Realize It (Column)

Back in July 2013, then-NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt announced a miniseries about Hillary Clinton, set to star Diane Lane and focus on her life in the wake of the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

Call it cynical, but many of us gathered at the Television Critics Association press tour that day were skeptical that the project would ever actually happen. As I said then on a radio interview about NBC’s plan: “Have you not been on the Internet lately? There may be some people who might object to this.”

That was an understatement. The response to the announcement, on both sides of the political aisle,

Emmys 2019 Poll: Who Should Win for Supporting Actress in a Comedy?
Emmy voters clearly couldn’t make up their minds in the category for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, with a whopping eight nominees in the mix this year. And with a bevy of strong contenders like these, who could blame them?

Two former winners are back for another shot at the trophy: Last year’s champ, Alex Borstein, is nominated again for her work as The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel‘s pushy manager Susie, and SNL‘s Kate McKinnon — who won in 2016 and 2017 — nabbed her sixth straight nod in this category.

Sean Penn Drama ‘The First’ Was ‘Unrelatable’ to British Audiences, Channel 4 Exec Says

Channel 4’s director of programs Ian Katz says the British broadcaster has learned a good lesson from the failure last year of its big-budget Hulu co-production “The First” to resonate with U.K. audiences.

Speaking at the Edinburgh TV Festival, Katz described the Sean Penn-starring drama about a mission to Mars as a “really classy piece of work with a big star and Hollywood production values.” But he said the drama was “unrelatable” to a British audience.

“It was possibly born of a moment where lots of British broadcasters were thinking that the way we can compete in

Younger Recap: Charles in Charge

Social media proved itself to be a double-edged sword on Wednesday’s Younger. But is it sharp enough to kill Kelsey’s entire career with a single swing?

Let’s dive in: During a work trip to Chicago, Kelsey impressed Millennial’s potential new investors with her grasp of social, especially how she’s using it to expand the business and improve customer loyalty. They were less impressed, however, by the sexy Dm she filmed for Zane (“Guess who got the money, honey!”) and accidentally posted to her Instagram story. The “uncomfortable” investors explained that they’re still interested in Millennial,

James Corden Got a Little Help From Paul McCartney on His Drive to the Emmys

James Corden Got a Little Help From Paul McCartney on His Drive to the Emmys
Saying “Baby, I could drive your car” has proven to be a very good strategy for James Corden — never more so than when he put Paul McCartney into the highly sought passenger seat.

The primetime special “Carpool Karaoke: When Corden Met McCartney, Live From Liverpool” is a contender in five Emmy categories this year, including variety special (prerecorded), plus directing, writing, editing and sound mixing for a variety special. That’s hardly the only impressive stat Corden can claim, though. The late-night host himself is up for seven Emmys, the most for any on-air performer this year, and five of
