Now We're Mad?

Debbie Asrate | December 20, 2014 | Black Voices
The recent airing of Sorority Sisters on VH1 has many people really upset (a slight understatement). Social media lit up with emotional rants about crying and broken hearts, threats to snatch sorors up, calls for boycotts, tweets to brands... the list goes on. I get it. Kinda.

Why Is Katie Couric Giving Stephen Collins a Forum to Defend Sexual Abuse?

H. A. Goodman | December 19, 2014 | Media
Being on 7th Heaven and other shows shouldn't mean getting the royal treatment of sexual abuse interviews, especially when the subject matter is critical to the lives of millions of young people in our country.

Looking Back at 9 Years of The Colbert Report (VIDEO)

Arianna Huffington | December 18, 2014 | Media
Today, as The Colbert Report airs its final episode, I'm looking back with gratitude on nine years of great television. I loved being on the show several times, discussing everything from my Greek accent to self-sabotage to the obnoxious roommate living in my head. Here are some of my favorite moments on The Colbert Report over the years.

Why 'The Comeback' Shouldn't Have

David Toussaint | December 17, 2014 | Entertainment
No one appreciates sentiment as much as Valerie Cherish, the desperate-for-everything actress on HBO's The Comeback, and no one is more equipped to play her than Lisa Kudrow, an actress so desperately talented she'll never want for work.

Did You Watch 'You Can't Do That on Television?' Here's Why You Should Have

Shira Hirschman Weiss | December 16, 2014 | Entertainment
Once upon a time, long before the advent of the Internet, and well before we all carried cell phones, a group of unknown kids boarded a bus from school to a small Ottawa TV taping facility.

Farewell, Colbert Nation (And Why Is Conservative Comedy Still Unfunny?)

Eric Boehlert | December 15, 2014 | Media
By embracing the absurd and truly embodying it, Colbert has made politics and public policy uproariously funny, while providing much-needed bouts of sanity for devoted news junkies.

Bianca Del Rio, Interviewed and Reviewed

Alexander Kacala | December 14, 2014 | Gay Voices
I had an opportunity to sit down with Bianca in her dressing room right after she got off the TLA stage in Philadelphia. I asked her about being compared to Joan Rivers and what she thinks about local Philly queen Mimi Imfurst.

We couldn't help but accept the challenge of assigning our favorite small-screen protagonists the holidays we imagine they'd dream of. The result is a list of amazing spots around that globe that anyone, real or make-believe, would be sure to enjoy.

As a True 'Joan Ranger,' This Is Why I Don't Want to See Kathy Griffin on 'Fashion Police'

Jackie Oshry | December 11, 2014 | Entertainment
As someone who always preferred Joan to Kathy, I will not be watching the upcoming episodes of "Fashion Police." No one can ever replace Joan Rivers. She was a fashion icon and a comedic legend, and for fans like me, the decision to replace Joan with Kathy does not sit well.

From Dexter to Drag: Michael C. Hall Talks Broadway, Playing Gay Characters and His Childhood

Dustin Fitzharris | December 11, 2014 | Gay Voices
When you see Hall on stage, he's full of piss and vinegar, but as he sits in his dressing room, barefoot and in jeans, a T-shirt and painted nails, he's reflective and gentle. He chooses his words so carefully that you can't help but hang on to every one.

No, The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show Isn't Bad for Teen Girls

Justina Sharp | December 10, 2014 | Teen
I shouldn't feel content with my body and the way I am, because I don't look like these Angels. Or at least, that's what the media is telling me and other girls (and boys) my age and beyond. If they're telling you that too, let me give you a piece of advice: ignore it.

Olive's Garden

Nancy Doyle Palmer | December 8, 2014 | Entertainment
Gardening in Maine can almost be an oxymoron -- her orderly, manicured and aesthetically perfect front garden stands in sharp contrast to the wild sea and cold skies of the Northeast. Yet she manages.

The Walking Dead Guns It, Whereas Hell On Wheels Recalibrates

Darryl Woodard | December 6, 2014 | Entertainment
You have to give AMC credit for a cable network rolling out a continuing unique entertainment experience. And of its current five dramas, both The Walking Dead and Hell on Wheels had ushered in surprising changes to their storyline characters this year.

Can you believe The Colbert Report is almost over? If someone you know will be going through major Colbert withdrawal soon, put some truthiness under the tree with these Colbert-related stocking stuffers.

3 Reasons Why I Stopped Hating the HIMYM Finale

Alka Pratap | December 2, 2014 | TV
In the end, even if I wasn't too happy about the ending, maybe that's the whole point of the series anyway -- the story is basically about Ted getting back together with Robin after so many years.

On Filming Eaten Alive: In Search of the World's Largest Snake in the Amazonian Wild West

Paul Rosolie | December 2, 2014 | Green
For a predator that can easily outweigh a grown man, we still know very little about the anaconda. How many of them are there? How are they adapting to the rapid changes in Amazonia today? How big are they getting? But before the snakes can be studied they must be found, and once they are found they must be restrained.

Friends In Fiction

Lisa Steinberg | December 1, 2014 | Entertainment
Television is our safety, our constant. Much like reality and real relationships, we can't always count on it not to hurt us. Just like our own selves, these characters have flaws. No one lives a perfect life, not even a fictional television character, no matter which pair of rose-colored glasses you wear to watch.

The Bill Cosby We Loved Is Gone

Susan Berger | December 1, 2014 | Fifty
For those of us who grew up in the '60s, hearing accuser after accuser come forward with their accounts of rape and sexual assault by the beloved Bill Cosby is for some of us akin to a child learning there is no Santa, Easter Bunny or Tooth Fairy.

Old Dogs & New Tricks: The Oral History of a 'Gay' Web Series (Part 2)

Brad Liberti | November 21, 2014 | Gay Voices
To this day, Leon Acord marvels at how successfully his beloved Old Dogs made the transition from his brain to the page to the screen. He credits his "dream team" of actors for making this possible and once again wonders what he's done karmically to deserve such luck. I tell him what he did was write a fantastic script.
