'Law & Order: Svu' to Address Harvey Weinstein Scandal

4 hours ago

File this under bound to happen.

NBC's Law & Order: Svu will address the Harvey Weinstein scandal with an episode slated to air in 2018.

The veteran Dick Wolf procedural will explore rape culture in the workplace but it won't be set in Hollywood. Instead, the hour will be set in the airline industry as producers on the Mariska Hargitay starrer were already working on the episode when the Weinstein scandal broke and proceeded to change Hollywood's conversation about sexual harassment in the workplace.

“We were actually working on a story about airline pilots and what a boys club that »

Netflix-Weinstein Co. Joint Golden Globes Party Discontinued

6 hours ago

One of the most prominent Golden Globes after-parties is no more.

Netflix and The Weinstein Co. co-hosted a black-tie bash in a tent adjacent to the Beverly Hilton, where the Globes ceremony takes place, in January of 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. It was one of the more coveted tickets of a night packed with parties, in part because many of the biggest names from film, television and media — from Bono and Jennifer Lopez to Jeff Bezos — could be counted on to show up and rub shoulders with hosts Ted Sarandos, Bob Weinstein and Harvey Weinstein.

On the Set of 'I'm Dying Up Here' as It Transports Cast and Crew Back to the 1970s

6 hours ago

I'm Dying Up Here is like walking into a time vortex. Guests are instantly whisked back to the 1970s as they become engulfed in a bell-bottomed, sideburn-sporting sea of extras. A nearby coffee table even has a few contemporaneous issues of The Hollywood Reporter (then a daily publication) strewn across it, one of which features a front-page story about a new hit movie called Star Wars.

On this afternoon in November 2016, the ensemble dramedy chronicling the birth of modern stand-up, executive produced by Jim Carrey, is shooting a scene for »

Maroon 5 Perform on the Subway for 'The Tonight Show'

7 hours ago

You’d think Maroon 5 couldn’t leave the house without being swamped by fans and celeb-spotters. It turns out they can fool some people, some of the time, with a little help from the makeup department. 

For a segment on The Tonight Show, Adam Levine and Co. donned disguises and entered the New York subway for an impromptu performance of "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" and "Sugar," lifted from their fifth studio set, V.

Looking more like an early version of Mumford & Sons than squeaky-clean pop-rock stars, the shtick seemed to work until Jimmy Fallon blew their cover. The late-night talk-show host has previously coaxed Miley Cyrus and U2 into busking »

Former Charlie Rose Intern Says He Made Her Watch S&M Scene in 'Secretary'

7 hours ago

A former intern for The Charlie Rose show has recalled a time when her then-boss, Charlie Rose, made her watch a well-known Maggie Gyllenhaal-starring scene in the sadomasochistic 2002 movie Secretary.

Sarah Gordon, who worked for Rose in 2002, said he showed her the graphic sex scene when she was delivering mail to his apartment, and asked her how it made her feel.

"I proceeded to go into the living room, and he said, 'I want to show you this scene from this movie' and he said have a seat, you know, relax, and he proceeded to turn on the film Secretary, »

'Runaways': How the Marvel Series Might Pull a 'Game of Thrones'-Level Twist

7 hours ago

[Warning: this story contains spoilers from the Runaways comic book series on which the new Hulu show is based.]

When it comes to the television adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona's Runaways, the comic book scribe had one simple rule for Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, the Gossip Girl team charged with bringing the Marvel Comics series to life: "No Wikipedia answers."

"It was important to me that we do something where people can't go online and read how this ends or what's going to happen next," Vaughan recently told The Hollywood Reporter. "If »

David Lynch on Another 'Twin Peaks' Return: "I've Learned Never Say Never"

7 hours ago

It's equally remarkable that the methodical and unpredictable David Lynch directed all 18 episodes of this summer's Twin Peaks revival and that Showtime let the esoteric auteur deliver a haunting, confounding, towering series that seemed close to unfiltered. Nightmarish surrealism blended with musical performances from the likes of Eddie Vedder and spiked with the sadness of deaths from several major castmembers. 

In his amiably evasive fashion, Lynch discussed his renewed love for television, the Twin Peaks season's ending, and more with The Hollywood Reporter.

Late-Night Hosts Take On Trump’s Turkey Pardons

8 hours ago

After the White House held its annual Turkey Pardon on Tuesday, late-night hosts Stephen Colbert, James Corden and Jimmy Fallon made jokes about Donald Trump's first time presiding over the annual holiday tradition.

“Today the president pardoned some turkeys and not just the white meat,” Colbert immediately joked during his opening monologue of The Late Show.  

After revealing that Trump's pardoned turkeys were named Drumstick and Wishbone, Colbert was quick to call the names “ominous.” “Those names don’t sound like you’re pardoning them. That’s like naming your fish, ‘flushable,'” Colbert said.

The Late Show host then showed a »

HBO Exec Sues TV Academy Over Fall at the Emmys

8 hours ago

Nancy Lesser, the executive vice president of media and talent at HBO, is upset that the Emmy Awards didn't take better safety precautions in setting up the red carpet walkway. In a lawsuit filed on Tuesday in La Superior Court, Lesser says she experienced a terrible fall last year when exiting from the Microsoft Theater. Her injury, she adds, caused her to miss out on HBO's after-party and take eight months to rehabilitate.

The complaint targets the Television Academy, Anshutz Entertainment, and the City of Los Angeles. Each of the defendants, alleges Lesser, laid out, positioned, and erected the red »

TV Ratings: 'Chicago Med' Lifts NBC Tuesday

8 hours ago

NBC soundly won Tuesday night with some help from its new 10 o'clock occupant. Chicago Med returned to the schedule, averting a 1.3 rating among adults 18-49 and giving the network its best time slot showing since the top of the season.

Dick Wolf's Chicago series proved more of a live draw than his Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders, which wrapped in the time slot last week. NBC's nightly win was driven by This Is Us, winning the night with a somewhat dampened 2.6 rating in the key demo, and an original episode of The Voice (1.7 »

Critic's Notebook: The Underdog TV Shows Deserving of Golden Globes Noms

9 hours ago

There was a brief, unlikely and, frankly, disagreeable period in the world of TV awards when the Golden Globes wanted to be the Emmys — in other words, serious and fair in their nominations — while the Emmy choices were tired, off-the-mark and without vision.

This was not good.

But then a couple of years ago, the Globes decided to be wacky and free-spirited again, casting off the albatross of really weighing whether a show was deserving and reverting to unabashedly loving the shiny and new. Luckily, two things happened: The Emmys seized the opportunity to reclaim its gravitas, making »

Late-Night Hosts Address Charlie Rose Sexual Harassment Claims

10 hours ago

After CBS fired news anchor Charlie Rose — who also hosts his own eponymous show on PBS, which has since cut ties with Rose — following a Washington Post report detailing how Rose allegedly sexually harassed eight women, Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers and Jimmy Fallon took time out of their opening monologues Tuesday night to address the news.

“So far, all of the allegations stem from his show on PBS. It is the worst scandal in public broadcasting since it was revealed PBS is short for ‘pubes,'” Colbert joked during his Late Show.

Seth MacFarlane, 'Family Guy' Called Out Weinstein, Spacey, Ratner and Rose Before Sexual Misconduct Claims

10 hours ago

It seems that Seth MacFarlane was dropping serious hints through Family Guy that something was amiss with multiple high-profile Hollywood men, who have since been hit with a tidal wave of sexual assault and sexual harassment allegations. 

From Kevin Spacey to Brett Ratner to Charlie Rose, MacFarlane, it seems, used his Fox cartoon to call the men out when their alleged misdoings were only industry murmur. 

The instance most noted to this point was when Kevin Spacey appeared to be called out in the episode "Don't Make Me Over," which first aired June 5, 2005. That gag had baby Stewie running naked through a crowded mall, yelling, “Help, »

Russell Simmons Accuser Says She "Froze," Tried to "Normalize" What Happened

Fashion model, Keri Claussen Khalighi, who says she was 17 when she was sexually assaulted by Russell Simmons, explained why she didn't immediately flee the scene of the alleged crime in her first live TV interview since going public with her allegations.

Khalighi told the Los Angeles Times that she went to Simmons' apartment, with Brett Ratner in tow, in 1991, where Simmons quickly began making aggressive sexual advances, including tearing off her clothes. “I looked over at Brett and said ‘help me’ and I'll never forget the look on his face,” she told the newspaper. “In »

'Godless': TV Review

11 hours ago

The Western has been a troubled genre ever since the best films did all they could with it — even, arguably, bringing it back from the dead with Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven in 1992.

Results were mixed, at best, from then on — on both the big and small screen. But the genre got a real jolt with HBO's reimagination of Westworld. That series took the dusty Western, tilted it toward science fiction and, in doing so, made it gleamingly modern and fresh.

But there's still plenty of story left in the Western, as Netflix's limited series, Godless, proves. Created, written and directed »

When CBS This Morning reported on one of its own Tuesday, The Washington Post's Amy Brittain, who co-wrote the Rose exposé, said on-air that more than a dozen women had reached out with potential claims since the story ran. In the story, eight women had accused the veteran journalist of sexual harassment, including exposing himself and/or groping their rear ends, breasts and genitals without consent.

Now, three additional women have come forward, preferring to stay anonymous but who have been identified as employees at CBS, CBS News' evening news first reported. Brittain, when speaking to CBS News' Bianna »

'Dancing With the Stars' to Air All-Athletes Season in the Spring

ABC is adding a new twist for Dancing With the Stars.

The network announced Tuesday night that it will air what appears to be a shortened mini-season of its reality staple in the spring. The next all-live season will feature all athletes.

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the season three premiere of Chicago Med, "Speak Your Truth."]

Chicago Med came back Tuesday for its third season, but it wasn't exactly business as usual for the Dick Wolf medical drama. Rather than a normal September return date, the series returned in late November with a slightly shorter 20-episode season order.

"It took some logistical maneuvering because we have to be in sync chronologically with the other Chicago shows," co-showrunner Andrew Schneider tells The Hollywood Reporter in reference to Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D.
