-I love Bryan Cranston but screw this noise.

-I also love Jon Stewart but I’m just not buying that he’s ‘stunned’ by the allegations against Louis C.K. This didn’t come out of nowhere. Tig Notaro has been talking about it for months. C.K. was asked about the allegations by the New York Times during TIFF in September.

-Meanwhile, has any male comedian besides Jason Alexander spoken out yet? I’m really disappointed by a lot of my faves.

-Also, this piece on the history of terrible comedians is worth reading. But I’m still I’m not worried about TV comedy. At all.

Bill Murray Talks “Crazy-Handsome” George Clooney in Vanity Fair

-Meanwhile, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt get emotional in the moody new By the Sea trailer.

-I love all of the weird Tom Cruise stories that have leaked from Leah Remini‘s book. He gets super angry when he wants cookies, and he plays adult hide-and-seek. Charming.

Leah also says her inspiration for leaving Scientology was Nicole Kidman.

-Meanwhile, here’s the first look at Tom and Nicole’s adopted daughter and her new hubby after their secret wedding. One assumes he isn’t an “SP.”

Halle Berry‘s first ex husband went on a Twitter rant about how she uses men and then tosses them aside. Cool story, bro.

-The People’s Choice Awards nominations are out, reminding us all that the people are stupid and shouldn’t be allowed to decide things. The Age of Adaline going up against Straight Out of Compton for dramatic movie? Really?? (I’ll allow The Duff’s nomination in comedic movie, though. I’ll ride for that film forever.)

Jon Stewart signed a four-year production partnership with HBO that includes “topical short-form digital content… refreshed throughout the day.” The Daily Show, multiple times a day? Yes, please!

-I love and adore everything about Robot Chicken’s take on CW shows.

Demi Lovato Calls Her Cosmo Cover “The Most Beautiful I Have Ever Felt”


Demi Lovato’s new Cosmo cover is re-igniting my desire to get a ribcage tat. Damn you, Demi! I’m too old for this shit.

-Also, here’s Stewart’s farewell speech. The perfect finale was The Daily Show’s second-most-watched episode ever.

-It’s been way too long since we’ve seen Lupita Nyong’o, but this photo of her frolicking is a great comeback.

-I feel like the Blake Lively edition if Toast’s ‘If xx Was My Girlfriend’ might have been written by Blake Lively herself. All the mason jar references were pretty funny, though.

Salma Hayek says “I think [big movie studios] don’t want me, but I don’t really care.” Does that explain the Everly trailer?

-Everyone’s paying close attention to the Fantastic Four box office results this weekend because of the terrible reviews and the surprisingly complicated history of adapting it. It didn’t help that the director tweeted (and then quickly deleted) a comment last night implying that Fox ruined the movie.

Jennifer Aniston managed to convince Sia to perform “Chandelier” at her wedding. Also, she brought Courteney Cox, Chelsea Handler and Jason Bateman on her honeymoon, which isn’t weird at all.

-Uh oh. Sean Penn is dating a Canadian now.

-The Broad City lip sync battle is here, and it’s spectacular.

-Here’s an excerpt from Mindy Kaling’s new book. She’s talking about the Q&A that I went to!! Fine, just take my money now.

-I really liked While We’re Young — enough that it made me wonder if I had been wrong about Noah Baumbach movies all this time. The New Mistress America trailer re-confirms my original assumptions.
