Once upon a time, Oscar winner and feminist supreme Geena Davis was unhappy with the gender inequality in preschool programming — so unhappy that she established the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, an organization that works within the entertainment industry to improve gender balance and reduce female stereotyping. So how come she's playing a Disney princess? Because this one kicks butt!

Andy Cohen Dishes on Five Years of Watch What Happens Live

Andy Cohen

It's the little late-night talk show that could. Next week, Watch What Happens Live — the kooky, wildly unpredictable chat-fest hosted by Andy Cohen — marks its fifth year on the air. That's no small feat, considering its very humble beginning as a shoestring web series anchored by a largely unknown Bravo network executive. Since then, plenty has changed. For starters, Cohen has become a celebrity in his own right, with one bestselling book down and a second due in the fall. And the ratings have grown. About 334,000 people tuned in for the first televised episode in 2009; this spring, WWHL hit an all-time high of 3.9 million viewers, and it's up 7 percent over Conan this season. The star power is also higher wattage. Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, Meryl Streep, Lindsay Lohan and Oprah Winfrey are among the guests who have partaken in the mélange of parlor games, free-flowing cocktails and general pop-culture revelry that's made the pint-size "Bravo Clubhouse" ground zero for countless watercooler moments. We sat down with Cohen in his Manhattan studio to relive the wild ride... read more

Video: The Beastie Boys visit Steve Buscemi on AOL's Park Bench

Steve Buscemi, Mayor Bill de Blasio

Very few episodes of Steve Buscemi's AOL talk show Park Bench actually take place on a bench. Or in a park. But the actor-host still gets his guests to talk as candidly as if they were simply hanging outside with a friend. "I'm no Dick Cavett, but I did manage to squeak by," Buscemi says of hosting the show, which unveils its final seven episodes simultaneously on Thursday, July 10. Among the guests: Method Man, the Beastie Boys, Daily Show correspondent Jessica Williams, artist Julian Schnabel, and Buscemi's Boardwalk Empire co-stars Michael Kenneth Williams and Bobby Cannavale.

"Method Man likes corny jokes, so he's my kind of guy," Buscemi says. "The Beastie Boys are very funny, and are also very good at sports. And Jessica Williams does a mean pigeon impersonation." For a sample, check out this exclusive outtake with the Beasties.

Parks and Recreation

Back in 1992, Richard Licata, now executive vice president of communications for NBC, was at HBO, and he was looking for a way to make the premium cable channel an Emmy contender. "Not all of the voters at that time in Los Angeles had HBO," he recalls. "We decided to get aggressive about our programming in a broadcast universe. The landscape was wide open."

Review: Extant and New NBC Summer Comedies

Greg Poehler

In space, no one can see you conceive. That appears to be the weird but intriguing premise of CBS's high-profile summer fantasy drama Extant, a show put into play after last year's successful summer run of the network's increasingly absurd Under the Dome. While Wednesday's pilot episode (9/8c) of Extant (all that was available for review) lacks the sort of unforgettable "wow" moment provided by the severed cow in Dome's opener, the new series also seems less likely to lapse irrevocably into silly hysteria.
