Growing up in the hood surrounded by a lot of poverty, music was one of the only things that made people feel good. That's why we need music and arts. We've got to put instruments in young people's hands because that's the kind of thing that really touches the soul.
The sketch made me laugh out loud, because, let's face it, Schumer and her lady friends are completely hilarious. But it also hit a little too close to home.
As Mystery Science Theater 3000's TV's Frank, comedian and writer Frank Conniff became possibly the most cuddly mad scientist in history.
I can offer nothing but gratitude to those who are willing to talk freely about their personal lives. To prove there is no stigma or shame in being gay. Because of them, a very special young man in my life may have an easier time with his life.
If you've been hungry lately for some soul-charging inspiration -- or for a cookbook by a true Master Chef -- I highly recommend Christine Ha's Recipes from My Home Kitchen.
Heading into its second season, HBO's The Newsroom has been controversial since day one, and Adina Porter has been all the more thrilled to be involved as the sparks have flown.
The Office showed us that the mundane has the power to be--often simultaneously and often powerfully--sacred and profane.
Much has been written about how often Judd Apatow collaborates with his wife, actress Leslie Mann. But why should they get all the ink when there are plenty of other Hollywood couples who manage to work quite well together, too?
So what do we do when this ends? Who do we turn to next? What's our mirror? Do we just get sad that we might not have a show like this anymore?
With Glee season four now complete, I decided to compile a list of what I believe needs to improve in the show's future. While the show is far from unwatchable, it is undeniably past its prime.
Folks at the ACLU should remember the gales of ridicule that met Dan Quayle when he criticized a plot point on "Murphy Brown." He was talking about a serious issue. But singling out the decisions of a sitcom character made the conversation seem slightly absurd.
The big day is upon us, Cece and Shivrang's wedding day, and as the tweets hinted: what could possibly go wrong?
It's that time again. Summer is upon us and with it comes reruns of your favorite television shows and crappy summer series that will be canceled mid-way into June.
What's more dangerous: cheating on your husband or giving a sandwich to a homeless guy? SVU says: the sandwich.
Richard Harmon is a lover of laser tag, Bob Dylan and wolves. With those interests in mind, it's no wonder Richard can play such diverse characters.
The J.J. Abrams Kirk is the Kirk of parody: Kirk the womanizer, Kirk the rule-flouting powder keg, Kirk the prideful egomaniac. Kirk the caricature. It works in a broad sense because that's the idea of Kirk that people who've never actually seen Star Trek have imprinted in their minds.
Another entertaining Mad Men episode brought the immediate aftermath of the precipitous merger between Don Draper's and Ted Chaough's rival agencies. This was a transitional episode, which nonetheless ended in tears, with the sudden assassination of Senator Robert F. Kennedy.

When I wrote the script for the sixth episode of "EastSiders" I knew that we might be inviting controversy. Many otherwise liberal friends and collaborators asked me if I was certain I wanted to take Constance Wu's character Kathy "in this direction."
Bill Hader is the perfect "SNL" cast member. And the fact that I've always known this, yet still feel like I have taken him for granted is a big part of why he is the perfect cast member. He really is the total package. He is Phil Hartman-level good.
"Man With a Plan" was meant to make us feel the characters' dislocation, and all the office stuff worked. What bored me was the whole bit with Don and Sylvia in the hotel.
