Joan Rivers

Matt's Weekend Picks: March 4-6

Kathy Griffin

The Defenders (Friday, 8/7c, CBS)
One week before she begins a limited run on Broadway — and let's hope HBO or somebody records THAT show! — the irrepressible Kathy Griffin goes to Las Vegas in a guest shot on this struggling courtroom drama. She is cast to type as a brash insult comic sued for offending one of her audience victims (What, Joan Rivers was busy?) In the subplot, the son of a hotel owner turns to buddy lawyers Nick and Pete for help after he wakes up to find a casino host strangled in a hot tub. What are the odds he's guilty? ... read more

Roush Review: How Super Was Bowl Night?

The Black Eyed Pea

At least the Packers and Steelers brought it. If only the advertisers had fought as hard to be worthy of the Super Bowl hype.

In recent years, the cliché of saying "I only watch for the ads" has been supplanted by a new Super Bowl truism: The game on the field somehow upstaged the jousting from Madison Avenue. Even this year's most memorable and charming ad — a bit of wordless magic involving a child in a Darth Vader outfit tricked into thinking he had self-started the family Volkswagen — stole some of its own thunder by being leaked and disseminated online days before Sunday's showcase. For Volkswagen, this extra exposure is likely considered a win. It's the sort of ad you're happy to watch and re-watch — and online it even runs longer. But the surprise factor was gone by Sunday night, robbing the ad of its "event" status... read more

Watercooler: Joan Knows Best … Or Does She?

Joan & Melissa: Joan Know Best?

Say what you will about Joan Rivers (God knows she's probably already said it funnier), but the woman really is a piece of work.

Last night, the legendary cut-up kicked off her new reality show, Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best, and proved to us all that Betty White isn't the only woman of a certain age worth watching these days. Loaded down with more baggage than a Bachelor contestant and enough opinions to put Fox News in a fetal position, Rivers also showed that she's as gutsy as some of her own material as she traded 21 years in Manhattan for Malibu to crash with daughter and red-carpet comrade Melissa. Did hilarity ensue? Sure. But so did some unexpected drama.

Joan Rivers Takes Aim at OWN and Jersey Shore

Melissa and Joan Rivers

Joan Rivers has made an entire career out of being brutally honest, whether through vicious stand-up or her infamous red carpet critiques.

Twitter: TV's New Battleground

Kanye West

It used to be that celebrity beefs were settled privately by their handlers and fan gripes were reserved for chat rooms. Now, with much of Hollywood hitting the social-network scene, these formerly undisclosed matters are on display for the world to weigh in on. The revolution is being Twitterized.

Whether it's Joan Rivers ripping on Lindsay Lohan, Suze Orman calling out the Kardashian sisters for hidden fees in their debit card (they've since dropped the project) or Kanye West blasting Matt Lauer, Twitter has become a public thunderdome where celebs can show their true colors in 140-character splashes free from publicist spin. read more
