Television folks don’t do a red carpet the way the music industry does. After all the eye candy at the MTV Video Music Awards last month, the Emmys were a big letdown. I’m going to give my coveted Best Dressed/Wear What You Want combo award to Scandal‘s Kerry Washington, though her phresh out the runway, […]

Thanks to the always highlarious Michael K of Dlisted for pointing out that The Golden Girls first aired on Sept. 14, 1985. As he says, it’s a national shame that this isn’t an official holiday that involves eating cheesecake and sitting on a lanai. The Golden Girls Get More: Comedy Central A few years ago, […]

The MTV Video Music Awards are tonight, so I was inspired to dig these out. I went to the #vmas from 1999 through 2003.

I don’t know why this video from 2014 popped up in my Twitter timeline recently, but I’m glad it did.  We’ve got The Voice television talent show here — where judges initially face away from the would-be stars in order to focus on the voices — but other countries have The Voice Kids, for 8- […]

Gladiator sandals really are the shoe of the moment. After writing about them in yesterday’s post, I spotted them in today’s New York Observer. This look is going to be wildly overdone this season, but I’m going to take advantage of its pervasiveness and stock up on styles so I have them to wear when […]

Tonight is the last broadcast of The Late Show with David Letterman, which has aired on CBS since 1993. First Mad Men ends and now this! It’s too cruel! Of course, everyone’s been indulging in Dave’s greatest hits for weeks. You can find lots of photos, videos and stories — going back to Letterman’s weatherman […]

Mad Men came through for me last night! It was totally worth skipping the FKA twigs concert I’d planned to attend in order to see the finale in real time. Do I really have to say that there are spoilers here? There are spoilers here! I honestly didn’t know what to expect, though there were […]

I’ve spent all week wondering what’s going to happen on the series finale of Mad Men on Sunday. If you could film what was happening in my brain, it would be like this. Will you be watching on Sunday? Also why isn’t there a video of the many times Joan says, “Ex-CUSE me?!”

At the end of Diane Sawyer’s interview with Bruce Jenner*, Sawyer referred to one of Jenner’s post-Olympian books, in which he wrote that everyone should have a one-sentence mission statement.  Sawyer said Bruce defined his mission statement now as “to provide understanding and tolerance toward people.” Well, Bruce can pat himself on the back because […]

Are all of you Anne Boleyn/Tudor history fans watching Wolf Hall on Masterpiece on PBS? I saw the excellent theatrical adaptations of Hilary Mantel’s historical novel Wolf Hall and its sequel, Bring Up the Bodies, in London last summer. The books and adaptations are about the rise of Thomas Cromwell, who rose from poverty to […]
