Homer Simpson, Peter Griffin
Fox has finally scheduled the crossover between the late Comedy Central animated comedy, which wrapped its seven-season run in Sept. 2013, and The Simpsons. The special episode will air this November. The crossover between ...
Sometimes the best way to deal with controversy over art is to wear it with pride. Like, literally wear it.
Actress Leslie Mann posted to Instagram a picture of her with her husband and Girls producer Judd Apatow both wearing a shirt with drawings of a nude Lena Dunham on it. To be clear, it's one shirt. They're both wearing one shirt. At the same time.

A Washington Post writer says she understands why her article about Santa Barbara killer Elliot Rodger offended and upset Seth Rogen and Judd Apatow.
Over the weekend, Ann Hornaday published a piece about the horrific YouTube manifesto Rodger uploaded prior to murdering six people. In the article, Hornaday spoke about Rodger's privileged lifestyle and Hollywood before calling out Rogen's latest film, Neighbors. "[Rodgers] unwittingly expressed the toxic double helix of insecurity and entitlement that comprises Hollywood's DNA," she wrote. "How many students watch outsized frat-boy fantasies likeNeighbors and feel, as Rodger did, unjustly shut out of college life that should be full of 'sex and fun and pleasure'? How many men, raised on a steady diet of Judd Apatow comedies in which the shlubby arrested adolescent always gets the girl, find that those happy endings constantly elude them and conclude, 'It's not fair'?"
Either Amy Schumer is the most modest woman in show business — or else she needs to have her hearing checked. Consider the facts: The 32-year-old's surprise Comedy Central hit, Inside Amy Schumer, is entering its sophomore season with a rabid following. Like Schumer herself, the series — a kinetic mix of sketches, man-on-the-street-style interviews and her live stand-up — is at turns racy, shrewd and deliciously warped, saved from actual wickedness by an undercurrent of chipper naïveté. (It's no surprise that Schumer cites Shirley Temple as a major inspiration.) She is also touring the country with her wildly popular stand-up act — while simultaneously writing and starring in a Judd Apatow movie, slated for release next summer. And yet, when asked about becoming the next big thing — Kristen Wiig comparisons come to mind — she balks. "Um...

For some viewers, Girls is just a bit too revealing.
Was it really so hard finding good help in those days? When Robert, aka Lord Grantham (Hugh Bonneville), is informed that his wife is once again bereft of a lady's maid, he overdramatically moans, "Are we living under a curse?"
There's no question a pall thicker than London fog hangs heavy over Downton Abbey in its fourth year as Masterpiece Classic's signature series (Sunday, 9/8c, on PBS; check tvguide.com listings). Not only has Lady Cora's bedchamber not been the same since her scheming servant O'Brien left — she slinks away in the opening scene, and boy, is she missed — but the family and staff are in sustained mourning over the untimely (and contrived) death, six months earlier, of heir Matthew Crawley, Lady Mary's husband, in last year's unhappy finale.
Former Ray Donovan executive producer Bryan Zuriff has been sentenced to six months of home confinement and two years of probation for his role in an illegal gambling enterprise, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Things get awfully bloody on Friday with the explosive first-season finale of Cinemax's violent noir Banshee (10/9c), in which shootouts and long-simmering feuds leave such a gory trail that it almost puts to shame a new episode of Starz' reliably visceral Spartacus: War of the Damned (9/8c).
"I must admit, you have an admirable knack for survival," understates the lethal ...
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey continued its box office reign this weekend, taking the top spot with an additional $36.7 million Box Office Mojo reports.
Though the Peter Jackson epic dropped 57 percent from its opening weekend, it still far outperformed new releases from Hollywood favorites Tom Cruise, Judd Apatow and Barbra Streisand.
Season 2 of HBO's buzz magnet Girls doesn't start until January, but apparently the comedy is already revving up for its third season.
Judd Apatow, who executive-produces the series, implied as much in an interview Monday. "We're about to shoot the...
