Mistakes Downton Abbey Did Not Make

Heather Deason Zynczak | August 19, 2014 | Women
My experience is that women sometimes are their own worst enemies. We are harder on ourselves than anyone around us. If you think you can't do it, you probably can't. Believe in yourself. You will succeed.

"Slobbering on the Coffin" - Oddball Interview With True Blood's Ginger, Tara Buck

Taylor Cole Miller | August 18, 2014 | Entertainment
Everyone who has seen Sunday's episode of True Blood "Love is to Die" knows that Ginger scored a major victory this week. The result was one of the series' greatest-ever, and certainly one of its funniest scenes.

Giuliana and Bill Rancic on Parenting, Romance and Their New Restaurant

Caroline Presno | August 15, 2014 | Entertainment
Giuliana and Bill Rancic aren't just any celebrity couple; they are a couple you want to root for. I talked with Giuliana and Bill on opening day of RPM Steak and had a down-to-earth Q&A with the affable couple about parenting, romance, and their coping strategies during the tough times.

Pretty Little Liars 510: "A Dark Ali"

Vanessa Berben | August 15, 2014 | Entertainment
The writers head in one direction and have you thinking you know exactly what you think you know, then BAM! something unexpected hits you out of nowhere. And that's what I love about this show. I love the answers, but I love the questions that come along with those answers.

On the Death of an Acquaintance

Madeline Wahl | August 15, 2014 | Women
I will never understand death. I will never know the intricacies of how it works. I don't know who will die next, and whether it will be someone who I'm close with or someone I barely know or have never met.

'How To Build A Better Boy' Review: A Tamer Version Of 'Weird Science'

Denette Wilford | August 13, 2014 | Canada TV
They don't make teenage comedies like they used to. That being said, "How to Build a Better Boy" is a movie coming out of the Disney Channel, so it's not like we were going to get something as wonderful as "Sixteen Candles" or as fetch as "Mean Girls."

VH1'S 'Hit The Floor' Actor Don Stark: Prolific Character Actor on Hard Work and Hollywood

Steve Karras | August 13, 2014 | Entertainment
Don Stark is most recognized as Bob Pinciotti, the quirky neighbor on the hit FOX sitcom That 70's Show. Stark currently plays Oscar Kinkaid on VH-1's hit Hit the Floor, now in its second season. Yet Stark's show personae couldn't be farther from his affable, real-life self.

Getting Israel/Palestine Right: Thank You, Sundance

Gary M. Burge | August 13, 2014 | Entertainment
Whenever Hollywood has tried to dramatize the Middle East, it has generally fallen for stereotypes. Rarely in these films do we gain a sympathetic understanding about the Middle East's culture. Rarely do we see its humanity or its nobility.

5 Lifesaving Things to Consider When Writing About the Death of Robin Williams

Liesel Reinhart | August 18, 2014 | Media
It is shockingly easy to unintentionally glorify suicide. Williams was a great talent, no doubt, but are we inadvertently communicating to others that they, as well, could find more love, comfort, and appreciation if they copied his act?

This past Sunday, August 10, I got to spend the day with some pretty amazing people -- teens and adults alike -- talking about overalls, fangirling and The Teenage Experience.

Farewell to Robin Williams: A Thank You Note

Lisa Jakub | August 12, 2014 | Celebrity
Even though I had not spoken with Robin in a very long time, I always assumed there would be some future opportunity to tell him that his letter changed my life. It taught me that you stand up for the things that matter. And even if your attempts fail, you tried. You told the truth. You took care of your friends. You fought back.

Methadone for the TV-Binge-Watcher: What to Watch While Waiting for the Next 'Hit'

Mellini Kantayya | August 12, 2014 | TV
Being a mere mortal and not a mighty algorithm, my suggestions aren't as nuanced as Netflix's 76,897 genre categories, but I did my best to match common themes and tones to these wonderful shows that may be new to many viewers.

Carrie Preston Talks True Blood, Female Directors and Shooting Sex Scenes

Taylor Cole Miller | August 8, 2014 | Entertainment
Some know her as True Blood's sassy Southern ginger Arlene Bellefluer, while others fell in love with her as The Good Wife's deceptively ditzy Elsbeth Tascioni. But Carrie Preston also has her hands in directing and producing through her independent film company Daisy 3 Productions.

Ed Martin | August 8, 2014 | Entertainment
As I continue contemplating the dizzying number of shows that I previewed at both, I find that one of the few that I continue to think about on an ongoing basis and one of the very few that I cannot wait to see is Syfy's Ascension.

If You Like 'Downton Abbey' You'll LOVE These Books

Daisy Goodwin | August 12, 2014 | Books
So as someone whose passion for the niceties of under-butlers and ducal precedence is matched only by Lord Fellowes's, I can reveal the books that inspired me and possibly him to write about American women and English country houses.

Redheads Want to Sell You Stuff

Janet Harris | August 7, 2014 | Business
A new study finds that 30 percent of ads during peak TV viewing hours include someone with red hair, even though the frequency at which natural redheads appear in the human population is generally estimated between 1-2 percent worldwide (2-6 percent in the U.S.).

Where Did The Good 'Ole Family Sitcom Go? Mr. Drummond, Mrs. Huxtable, I Miss You!

Marco Gonzalez | August 7, 2014 | Parents
The definition of "family sitcom" is not what it was back in the '80s or even the '90s. Nowadays, family shows are more geared towards tweens and teens.
