Kathy Griffin and Anderson Cooper
Every day might be New Year's Eve pretty soon at CNN.
Deadline reports that Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin, who co-host the network's New Year's Eve coverage every year, filmed a...
The American Bible Challenge
TV history, and cable's History channel, will tell you: Never bet against the Bible. While History's greatest-hits approach to The Bible (airing Sundays through Easter) continues to reap blockbuster ratings, GSN launches a second season of The American Bible Challenge (9/8c), its highest-rated game show, which could just as easily be called Are You Smarter Than a Divinity Student?
Aubrey Plaza, Kathy Griffin
Aubrey Plaza fulfilled her lifelong dream to get her ears pierced in front of a live audience with a little help from Kathy Griffin. The Parks and Recreation star allowed the comedian, who has no piercing experience, to do the deed when Plaza appeared on Kathy.
American Horror Story: Asylum
Our top moments of the week:
10. Best Overacting: When Lindsay Lohan hires Million Dollar Decorators' Kathryn Ireland to redesign her home, their conversations about the project quickly devolve into very weird territory. "In order to become yourself, you need to go through different ups and downs, or else you'll never know who you are," Lohan tells Ireland. We're not really sure what that has to do with decorating, but you know, whatever works for you, Linds! And you thought she was overacting in Liz & Dick!
Michael Emerson, Jim Caviezel
In one of the better winter cliffhangers before the holiday break, CBS' Person of Interest (9/8c) left off with Reese (Jim Caviezel) in custody, having saved his partner Finch's hide but failing to escape the scene of their latest caper before he was rounded up with the episode's bad guys. The feds know they have the elusive "Man in a Suit" in their grasp, but too bad for them that everyone they nabbed is similarly attired. Which guy in the suit is their prey? Reese isn't talking — some things never change. So while Finch (Michael Emerson) takes up the slack with the "machine," pretending to be a substitute teacher to help out a teen hacker prodigy, it's up to Detective Carter (Taraji P. Henson) to try to get the quietly lethal vigilante out of their clutches. (This story continues next week, so don't expect an instant miracle.)
Adam Levine, Michelle Obama
The nominations for the 55th Annual Grammy Awards were announced Wednesday. Television held a strong presence among the honorees with two of The Voice coaches, NBC's freshmen hit Smash, Ellen DeGeneres, Rachel Maddow, Kathy Griffin, Jimmy Fallon and American Idol's Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood all scoring nominations.
Grant Bowler and Lindsay Lohan
The fall television event everyone had been waiting for has come and gone, but it will live on in Twitter infamy forever.
We're talking, of course, about Liz & Dick, the Lifetime movie starring Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor, which premiered Sunday.
The film was overwhelmingly panned by critics and regular viewers alike, and even some celebrities — including Lohan herself — offered their thoughts via Twitter. Here's a roundup of some of the best celebrity tweets from the night:
Mitt Romney, President Barack Obama
Last week's binders are this week's horses and bayonets.
President Barack Obama's sarcastic knock of Governor Mitt Romney's views on the military budget — saying the military has fewer "horses and bayonets" and Navy ships than it previously did because of changing needs — was the most tweeted-about topic of last night's third and final presidential debate.
The debate overall generated 6.5 million tweets, according to official Twitter statistics — the lowest number of all three debates. The "horses and bayonets" comment alone sparked more than 105,000 tweets and also immediately spawned a parody account, @horsesbayonette.
Here's a breakdown of the 20 best celebrity tweets on the debate:
Kathy Griffin can continue to tell people to "suck it!" Her prime-time Bravo talk show Kathy has been renewed for a second season.
"Big News! Picked up! Renewed! #KATHY back in January!" Griffin tweeted on Thursday.
Maybe this is why Adam Carolla called it The Man Show.
Carolla, who most recently appeared on Celebrity Apprentice, recently told the New York Post that "dudes are funnier than chicks." While promoting his new book, Not Taco Bell Material, Carolla insisted that he doesn't hate working with women, but that they're always...
