Question: OMG! The Halloween episode of Black-ish was the funniest yet! Between all the pranks at home and his office (Josh getting hit was the best — twice!), the daughter deciding not to prank anymore, and the kids not going trick-or-treating because they didn't want to get diabetes, I couldn't decide what was funnier; well, maybe Josh getting hit twice in the nose was the best! However, I think the best thing of the whole episode was the ending when they came out dressed like the Jackson 5; brought back so many awesome childhood memories for me! This is the best sitcom of the 2014 season! I hope they renew it as I look forward to watching it every week! — Amy, Galloway, OH

Feud Between 12 Years a Slave Writer, Director Causes Tension at Oscars

The creative team behind 12 Years a Slave had plenty of reasons to celebrate at Sunday's Oscars, including the film taking home Best Supporting Actress for Lupita Nyong'o, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Picture. But it wasn't all smiles for director Steve McQueen and writer John Ridley, who are reportedly feuding with each other.

Ripley raised eyebrows at the Academy Awards on Sunday when he snubbed McQueen on his way to the stage to accept the award for Best Adapted Screenplay, and neglected to thank McQueen in his speech.
