Star Sightings: Stephen Colbert Talks Louis C.K. With Samantha Bee, Gwen Stefani Performs in Dubai & More!

Though Louis C.K.'s transgressions were widely considered the worst kept secret in the comedy world, to some, it really was a secret.

Stephen Colbert welcomed Samantha Bee to the stage at Njpac in Newark, New Jersey, on Dec. 6, where she was the special guest on Sad! A Happy Evening with Stephen Colbert & Samantha Bee, a fundraiser for the Montclair Film Festival.

During their hour-and-a-half-long chat, the longtime friends talked everything from dealing with politics (specifically President Donald Trump's tumultuous first-year in office) during their late night monologues -- Colbert hosts The Late Show on CBS while Bee is the face of Full Frontal on TBS -- as well as the seismic shift in culture surrounding sexual harassment since the Harvey Weinstein allegations came to light.

Colbert was supposed to have C.K. on his show the week the New York Times published its report on his sexual misconduct, and the 53-year-old comedian was planning on using an

The 20 Best Crime Films of the 21st Century, From ‘Memento’ to ‘Zodiac’

The 20 Best Crime Films of the 21st Century, From ‘Memento’ to ‘Zodiac’
No genre illustrates the evolution of cinema better than the crime film. As recently as the ’90s, Hollywood regularly released stories of cops-and-robber showdowns and mystery-thrillers based on best-selling novels — but as the middle class continues to disappear from Hollywood films, smart crime stories moved to television (see: “The Sopranos,” “The Wire,” “Breaking Bad,” “The Night Of,” et. al.).

Outside the studios, there is a longstanding tradition – from the B-movies to the Coen brothers – of new directors showcasing their filmmaking chops with dark, stylish, and intense crime sagas. A surge of new filmmakers in the ’90s brought fresh interpretations to the genre, from the pastiche of “Reservoir Dogs” to the unnerving realism in “Boyz n the Hood.”

These days, many of the best contemporary directors — including Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, Mann, the Coens, Park Chan-wook and Spike Lee – still love the genre,

#PLLGameOver: Farewell Pretty Little Liars, the most fancentric TV show yet

Over seven years, the dark, camp teen drama has given its huge fanbase hints, spoilers and extra Omg moments online; it even lets them write plots. Is this the future of television?

Back in 2010, the “teen TV” landscape was dominated by the brooding One Tree Hill, the privileged otherworld of Gossip Girl and 90210’s La melodrama. So when Pretty Little Liars debuted that summer, it barely cast a shadow. No one could have guessed that seven years on, as it bows out for good, the show would have smashed multiple social media records and be a loss of epic proportions for its fans worldwide.

Based on Sara Shepard’s eponymous Ya series, Pretty Little Liars traced the lives of a high-school foursome – studious Spencer (Troian Bellisario), sporty Emily (Shay Mitchell), fashionista Hanna (Ashley Benson) and alt-girl Aria (Lucy Hale) – as they were terrorised by a mysterious assailant known only as
