Craig Ferguson, Ellen DeGeneres and Other Celebs React to "Horrendous" Explosions at Boston Marathon

Craig Ferguson

All of the late-night shows went on as regularly scheduled Monday night, just hours after three were killed and more than 130 were injured by two explosions at the Boston Marathon. But it was far from business as usual.

"Tonight's show is a little bit different. Obviously, the news of today is so horrendous that it would seem insensitive at best to say 'It's a great day for America,' so I won't be starting the show with that tonight," Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson said in his monologue Monday. "Is anyone else sick of this s---? I seem to have to say that too often. People say to me, 'Craig, your job is to make people laugh at the end of the day.' And I think, yes, that's... read more

The Weekend Playlist: Cards Sharks on Netflix, Super Bowl Weekend

House of Cards

"I have no patience for useless things." The Machiavellian politician making this pronouncement, in the sinister opening scene of Netflix's instantly gripping shot-across-the-bow miniseries House of Cards, is Francis Underwood (a perfectly reptilian Kevin Spacey). On the surface, he's a team player, a powerful House of Representatives leader in the cynical snake pit of Washington, D.C. The conceit of House of Cards, as it was in the brilliant Emmy-winning 1990 British classic this is based on (first seen in the U.S. on Masterpiece Theater), takes us behind Underwood's mask to reveal the manipulative monster within, a voracious tyrant who doesn't suffer fools gladly and takes no prisoners in his predatory pursuit of power.
