Chance the Rapper is Chicago’s New Favorite Weatherman (Video)

Chance the Rapper is Chicago’s New Favorite Weatherman (Video)
Hip-hop artist. Comedian. And now… meteorologist? Is there anything Chance the Rapper can’t do? Fresh off his well-received stint hosting “Saturday Night Live,” Chicago’s favorite son might now be the Windy City’s favorite weatherman as well. Chance stopped by WGN9’s morning news show on Friday, and seamlessly navigated the day’s weather forecast (I thought you needed a degree for that?). Maybe we should start calling him Chance the Meteorologist… ?Or not.

Golden Globes 2018 Television Predictions: ‘Big Little Lies’ and ‘Will and Grace’ Should Top Nominees

Golden Globes 2018 Television Predictions: ‘Big Little Lies’ and ‘Will and Grace’ Should Top Nominees
With a relatively small group of voters who can have idiosyncratic tastes, surprises in 2018’s Golden Globes nominations are all but inevitable. But if these predictions are correct, HBO’s “Big Little Lies” and NBC’s “Will and Grace” will be the top nominees in the TV categories with five nominations a piece. Best Drama Series Predictions: “The Crown,” “Game of Thrones,” “The Good Doctor,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “This is Us” In the television categories, the HFPA would rather lead the Emmys than follow them – but in the absence of a new show as hot as last year’s “The Crown,

Five Reasons Why “Will and Grace” is an Offensive Show

During its heyday, “Will and Grace” helped the Lgbtq community in many ways. This show made the lifestyle acceptable and even allowed the community to be portrayed on television. Many say it helped bring about some much needed innovation that TV had been misrepresenting and lacking in the past. What really made this show a huge hit was that it openly presented gay men in a way that had never been done in the past. Today, shows have jumped on this bandwagon to make sure the Lgbtq community is given their rightful place on TV. Now that the reboot has

‘Will And Grace’ Xmas Episode Brings Ratings Cheer To NBC

Will and Grace came back from a nearly 5-week hiatus, jumping 13% in the demo and 24% in total viewers compared to its last, early November original. W&G (1.8 demo rating, 7.1 million viewers) tied NBC's singing competish The Voice (1.8, 9.9M) as the night's top-rated program in the demo. After W&G, Superstore (1.1, 4.4M) was similarly up in both metrics, but Chicago Med (1.1, 6.6M) tumbled at 10. NBC won the night with a 1.4 demo ratings and 7.4 million viewers. ABC’s The…

Debra Messing and Will & Grace Cast Honor Debbie Reynolds During Holiday Special

Debra Messing and Will & Grace Cast Honor Debbie Reynolds During Holiday Special
It was a touching tribute to the late Debbie Reynolds on Will & Grace‘s holiday episode Tuesday night.

Debra Messing, 49, shared a sweet selfie on Instagram hours before the show aired wearing the same costume that Reynolds was wearing in a portrait in the episode.

The “A Gay Olde Christmas” holiday special saw the cast transported back in time — and throughout the episode, the late actress’ visage, as depicted in a painting mounted on the wall, watched over them.

The actresses played mother and daughter duo, Grace and Bobbi Adler on the show. Messing grinned while pointing at Reynolds’ portrait in the photo,

Molly Shannon Returns to Will & Grace as Val Bassett — 2018 First Look

Molly Shannon Returns to Will & Grace as Val Bassett — 2018 First Look
Now we know for sure which way madness lies: Molly Shannon is set to bring the cray-cray back to Will & Grace as wackadoodle Val Bassett, and TVLine has an exclusive first look at Jack’s onetime stalker in (fatal attr)action.

As you can see from the image — a throwback, perhaps, to the character’s introduction to Will during a Season 1 elevator ride — Grace’s rival has not gone sane, so to speak, since her last appearance in Season 7. Or at least Karen and Jack don’t seem to think that she has, given the distance they’re keeping from her. The hitcom’s co-creators, Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, say that “2018 promises to be a year marked by unmoored insanity, and it’s in that spirit we’ve asked the divine Molly Shannon to be part of the second half of our first season back.”

December Movies: Overcrowding Bad for Box Office, Bad for Oscar

December Movies: Overcrowding Bad for Box Office, Bad for Oscar
December is the cruelest month, at least for Oscar hopefuls. For decades, a December launch was aimed at big holiday box office or awards attention, or both. Now, there is such a glut of year-end movies — 32 films scheduled to open in 31 days — that both goals have been hard hit.

This year’s bounty (nine wide releases, 23 limited openings) represents a big jump from the 24 last year. There are more companies releasing more films; that means more competition at the box office, especially when one of those wide openers is “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”

It also means more awards anxiety as voting deadlines are moved earlier and earlier. Everybody wants to be first, so the National Board of Review announced winners Nov. 28; the N.Y. Film Critics were Nov. 30. SAG Awards deadline is Dec. 10.

The December crop includes “The Disaster Artist,” “Downsizing,” “Happy End,” “I, Tonya,” “Molly’s Game,” “The Shape of Water” and “Wonder Wheel.” Most

Aaron Sorkin Reveals His Idea for a ‘West Wing’ Reboot

Revivals of beloved TV shows are all the rage right now. Will and Grace is back; Gilmore Girls has all-new episodes; The X-Files is about to begin a second revival season; Roseanne is currently in production. Everything old is new again, and it’s led many to wonder which shows definitely won’t be returning. The cable offerings that ushered in the Second Golden Age are likely too recent and too final to return, but network favorites very much seem up for grabs. The West Wing, which still stands as one of the best shows in TV history, …

She's Gotta Have It: Yes, You Know This Beautiful Face

  • BuzzSugar
The Netflix comedy-drama series She's Gotta Have It may be centered around sex-positive, polyamorous, pansexual, feminist, Brooklynite artist Nola Darling (DeWanda Wise), but it's gold-grill-rocking Mars Blackmon, one of Nola's three male lovers, played by Anthony Ramos, who's poised to have viewers of Spike Lee's reboot based on the film of the same name wanting more. Look past the wide glasses and quirky outfits, and Ramos might be a familiar face, and voice, to anyone who found themselves caught up in the Hamilton: An American Musical craze. His big break came in 2015 when he made his Broadway debut alongside Lin-Manuel Miranda in the hit hip-hop musical, playing both celebrated soldier John Laurens and Alexander Hamilton's ill-fated son Philip during the show's original run before leaving the production in late 2016. In addition to his stage career, Ramos also appeared in TVLand's Younger, the Sundance indie film White Girl, and most recently,

Fifty years of The Walking Dead? Welcome to 'Franchise TV'

AMC’s boss has revealed The Walking Dead could be at the start of a decades-long run. With similar plans for Game of Thrones will viewers simply burn out?

In terms of TV, 2017 has been the year of the spin-off, sequel, reboot and remake. Will and Grace came back. Curb Your Enthusiasm came back. Twin Peaks came back. 24 came back. Star Trek came back. Even Legion, arguably the most deliberately esoteric series of the last 12 months, was technically an offshoot of the X-Men movies.

Will & Grace Recap: Maid Service
Warning: The following contains spoilers for the fall finale of Will & Grace.

Adios, Rosario. As the promos for Thursday’s Will & Grace had so heavily hinted, Karen’s maid, sparring partner and mother figure didn’t survive the fall finale.

Sure, “Rosario’s Quinceanera” started off frisky and funny, with Karen assuming that, since her cleaning lady had gone Awol, it must be “Maids Eat Free Day at Applebee’s” or something. And when Rosario finally phoned, her boss turned the snark up to 11, warning that she’d “better be in the hospital.” The thing was, she was — she’d had a heart attack!
