W. Kamau Bell
Jimmy Fallon, Conan O'Brien, Stephen Colbert, James Corden, Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers. What do all these names have in common? They're all currently, or are going to be, late-night talk show hosts.
And they're all white guys.
In a column for Buzzfeed, comedian W. Kamau Bell rails against "the whiteness of late night," and comments upon the opportunities for change that have been passed up, in recent months especially.
Robert De Niro, Don Rickles
Insults never sounded sweeter than when Don Rickles was hurling hilarious barbs at his targets, whether innocent ringside onlookers or the rich and famous on a celebrity roast dais. At 88, though stooped and using a cane, he still gives as good as he gets, a fact brought home with delightful wit and genuine lump-in-the-throat sentiment in Spike TV's One Night Only: An All-Star Tribute to Don Rickles (Wednesday, 9/8c).

I am so excited for The Good Wife to return! Any scoop on upcoming cases? — Rosie
ADAM: Strangely enough, The Good Wife will take inspiration from Friends for an upcoming episode — but probably not how you think. The case of the week is based on the (eventually dismissed) 2004 sexual harassment lawsuit brought against several of the NBC comedy's writers by a former writer's assistant. "Lockhart/Gardner gets in trouble," co-creator Robert King says. "One of their paralegals sues the firm for sexually harassing her and the firm unfortunately can't represent itself. So, over David Lee's objections, they go to Elsbeth Tascioni [recent Emmy winner Carrie Preston] to try to defend them." Will she be there for them?

This is our thank you to you guys and our appreciation to you." Added co-creator and executive producer Carter Bays: "Season 9 is going to be beautiful and funny and dramatic and awesome, and I think it's going to be the appropriate end to the story."
