Lifetime Preps William & Kate Movie

Prince William and his future princess, Kate Middleton, are about to get the Lifetime movie treatment.

Lifetime has fast-tracked the TV movie William & Kate, which will star Nico Evers-Swindell (NCIS: Los Angeles) as Prince William, now second in line to the British throne. The role of Kate has not yet been cast.

Alex Ovechkin

"Picking sides is fascinating," says play-by-play announcer Mike Emrick, who will call Sunday's game for Versus. "Do you... read more

The Good Wife

Why is "phone" used as a verb on The Good Wife?

CBS' taut legal drama The Good Wife, starring Julianna Margulies, takes place in modern-day Chicago... But you'd never know it to hear the characters talk. (Sample dialogue: "Let me know when he phones!") We counted several occurrences of this phrase during a recent scene, with folks of every age and creed hilariously bandying about variations on the awkward verbiage.

Get to Know Parks and Recreation's Aubrey Plaza

Aubrey Plaza

She plays
April Ludgate, the Parks and Recreation staffer known as much for her back-and-forth flirtation with dimwit Andy (Chris Pratt) as for her chronically dry wit — something the actress admits to sharing with her alter ego.

Roush Review: Comedy, Animated and Rehashed

Archer

For those of us stuck in the colder climes during this miserable winter, what could be better than keeping the home fires burning with laughter? Not so easy when ABC, which boasts the best all-around night of comedy with its Wednesday lineup, is currently in a repeat cycle.
