    Julia Louis-Dreyfus, a graduate of the all-girls private high school attended by Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault decades ago, has signed a letter in support of her. Louis-Dreyfus, a 1979 graduate of the Holton-Arms School in Bethesda, Maryland, tweeted Monday that she joins some 200 alumnae who stand with Ford, 51, a California research psychologist. “We believe Dr. Blasey Ford and are grateful that she came forward to tell her story,” says the draft letter, according to the Huffington Post. “It demands a thorough and independent investigation before the Senate can...

    Over 80 percent of prime-time network family comedy television shows have scenes in which adult characters use sexually explicit dialogue in front of children, a conservative media watchdog has warned. In a new report released Monday, the Parents Television Council has documented the widespread use of sexually charged language in television shows across multiple networks that the networks themselves are deeming to be family-friendly. "What we are seeing is the frog in the boiling water, where as the temperature goes up, the frog doesn't realize how hot it has gotten," Winter told The Christian Post in an interview. "We have...

    The NFL’s TV ratings are being monitored on Wall Street, with some financial analysts saying that another big ratings drop could affect the standing of some broadcast companies. “We continue to believe the NFL is the single biggest swing factor for media earnings and valuation,” read a research note released this morning from MoffettNathanson. “Any sign of continued NFL ratings weakness could pose a long-term risk for broadcasters who may be forced to bid up for rights.” The most interesting part of the report looks into the next round of rights negotiations, with the report suggesting that ESPN should drop...

    They say the Almighty works in mysterious ways and, in this case, it's through Facebook. We've all had those friend requests that we leave in limbo for longer than we should, but for one self-proclaimed "pesky atheist who wants to make you think," ignoring this one might not be an option. In the uplifting new drama God Friended Me, which will air Sundays this Fall at 8/7c on CBS and CBS All Access, Brandon Micheal Hall (The Mayor, Search Party) stars as podcast host Miles Finer, a spiritual skeptic who doesn't exactly know what to do when The Man Upstairs...

    A TV adaptation of Batwoman is to become the first live-action superhero series with an openly gay lead character. The show is being developed for the US channel, the CW, adding to the network's collection of shows based on DC comics characters. Batwoman was introduced in the 1950s as a love interest for Batman to dispel rumours of his own homosexuality. The character was reintroduced in 2006 as a gay woman called Kate Kane. She has since become the highest-profile openly gay character of any DC comic. The show's synopsis describes Kate Kane as an "out lesbian and highly trained...

    Yellowstone follows the Dutton family, led by John Dutton, who controls the largest contiguous ranch in the United States, under constant attack by those it borders - land developers, an Indian reservation, and America's first National Park. It is an intense study of a violent world far from media scrutiny - where land grabs make developers billions, and politicians are bought and sold by the world's largest oil and lumber corporations. Where drinking water poisoned by fracking wells and unsolved murders are not news: they are a consequence of living in the new frontier. It is the best and worst...

The latter didn't work out so well. “Some people are settling down, some people are settling, and some people refuse to settle for anything less than butterflies.” “The most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you find someone to love the you you love, well, that’s just fabulous.” — Carrie Bradshaw This month marks the twenty-year anniversary of the iconic television series “Sex and the City.” With smart writing...

    The surprise commencement speaker at the Florida high school where a gunman killed 17 people in February was Jimmy Fallon, who said he wanted to thank the students personally for their courage and bravery. “Most commencement speakers get up and talk in future tense: `You will succeed. You will make us proud, you will change the world,’ the “Tonight Show” host said. “But I’m not going to say that, because you’re not the future. You’re the present. … You are succeeding, you are making us proud.” Fallon joked about his own less-than-stellar high school performance — it took having to...
