Rita Ora Wore a Bathrobe to the EMAs, Because of Course She Did
Rita Ora was on hosting duties at Sunday night's MTV Europe Music Awards in London, and she definitely made sure to make a memorable entrance. Trailers for the ceremony promised multiple outfit changes from the fashion-mad singer, and she made a tongue-in-cheek nod to this when she hit the red carpet in a bathrobe and towel, looking a bit like she was still in the process of getting ready (were it not for the full face of makeup, heels, and diamond jewelry). She even took her look on stage, swapping the long robe for a short one as she greeted the crowds at the Sse Arena. Rita shared a snap of the look on Instagram, captioning it "From the sofa, to the car, to the @mtvema red carpet." If only we could all rock up to work like this, it would make Monday mornings so much more manageable!

Bobby Moynihan Jokes Being a Dad and on SNL Are 'The Same': It's '9 Months of Torture Then 18 Years of Anxiety'
Bobby Moynihan is taking to new parenthood like a drunk uncle to bad jokes.

The Saturday Night Live alum sat down for a chat with People Now about his life as a first-time dad — to a baby girl his wife Brynn O’Malley gave birth to in July.

“I was much more terrified leading up to it, but it’s not as scary as I thought it would be,” says the actor and comedian, 40, who announced his daughter on the way in June with an adorable Wonder Woman-themed tribute.

Goodbye ‘Girls': What Lena Dunham Taught Me

Goodbye ‘Girls': What Lena Dunham Taught Me
The first year that “Girls” debuted on HBO TheWrap newsroom was often in turmoil on Monday mornings, when female staffers would face off against male staffers and explain why they despised the show. Or, alternately, why they refused to watch it. Really. We had all-out cultural battle lines between the women who hated how the show cut way too close to the jib of their real lives – “I’m not going home to watch myself on TV, sorry,” one annoyed sales coordinator told me memorably – and others who felt seen and recognized and thus championed by Hannah and her friends.

On the Radio: Feud Used What Word? This Is Us Up Close and Personal & More!

  • TVfanatic
Feud: Bette and Joan premiered on FX last night. It was everything I'd imagined it would be.

If you have watched, check out my review of Feud: Bette and Joan Season 1 Episode 1 and if you haven't watch Feud: Bette and Joan online to become entranced.

But be prepared! They're not treating the feud between Bette and Joan or any other with kid gloves.

Pay attention to scenes featuring Stanley Tucci as Jack Warner

Not only is he fabulous as usual, but as Warner, he has his own feud going on with Bette Davis.

That feud brings out the ultra nasty side of Mr. Warner, and with it some language that will shock you.

You just don't hear it on TV. And if you say it at work, well, you'll probably be fired.

Is there any evidence Warner ever used it in connection to Davis? No.

But if we were going to make a bet?

On the Radio: Tune into Bates Motel and Shock Over Upcoming Ahs Theme

  • TVfanatic
It's President's Day, so what better way to celebrate than to assure McGraw Ryan Murphy intends to make the most of the past election in the upcoming installment of American Horror Story?

Fans have already started making cool artwork in support of it.

I was pleased to hear McGraw watched and enjoyed Big Little Lies Season 1 Episode 1, which I gave a stellar review.

You guys haven't checked in with me if you've watched, which is a bit disappointing. 

We can only make recommendations and hope you take them!

Another new show that premiered last night on HBO was Crashing, and both McGraw and I agreed it was well done and funny.

From Pete Holmes (and starring the same), it's a look at the burgeoning career of a stand-up comedian.

Since it's from HBO and affiliated with Judd Apatow, with it comes degrading circumstances both comical and cringe-worthy.

On the Radio: Was Super Bowl Li the Most Political Yet?

  • TVfanatic
My man McGraw Milhaven from 550 Ktrs Radio in St. Louis, Mo saw political messages everywhere he looked while watching the Super Bowl.

Whether it was the immigration themed commercials or Lady Gaga's choice of material, he felt slapped in the face.

But was it really as political as all that?

Lady Gaga kept her word and delivered an entertaining half-time show that all Americans could enjoy.

Her message was delivered, but it was one that included all facets of America and added no further personal pronouncements.

That took courage, and of course, it was Lady Gaga who could do it so well.

The commercials for the Super Bowl weren't all that exciting, seeming to have lost their creativity from years' past. 

When the best commercial on the air was the sneak peek of Stranger Things 2, and featured a 30-year-old commercial for Eggo waffles, well that right there should tell

At TV Fanatic, we're always looking for new ways to get the word out there about things we love about television.

Need we remind you we love television?

Our latest effort involves the help of McGraw Milhaven of 550 Ktrs Radio in St. Louis, which you can listen to streaming by clicking that link back there any time.

Monday mornings at 8:20 am Ct I will be joining McGraw to chat about TV.

If you have something you think I should toss the way of McGraw and cover right here at TV Fanatic, email me. Don't be shy.

If we don't know what you, our readers, love, then we might not be covering it.

This week, we chatted about the return on Tgit and how Grey's Anatomy fans expected a more Alex-centric episode to be featured. 

Scandal also got a nod, before we launched into HBO and The Leftovers, which McGraw

I wonder when, or whether, Britain will ever grow up about sex. Especially Sunday-night sex on television. Are we just queasy about it arriving the night we dine frugally on soup and a boiled egg, our shoes polished in the hall ready for those keen, damp Monday mornings?

Review: 'Westworld' unlocks another mystery in 'Trompe L'Oeil'

Review: 'Westworld' unlocks another mystery in 'Trompe L'Oeil'
A review of tonight's Westworld coming up just as soon as I ride a train of explosives through scalping territory... "The hosts are the ones who are free. Free, here, under my control." -Ford A trompe l'oeil is an artistic illusion that makes a two-dimensional drawing appear to exist in three dimensions. The title would fit almost any episode of Westworld, where the human characters go back and forth on whether the hosts are in any way real, but particularly this one, where it's revealed that Bernard is a host who has been programmed to believe he's human, while occasionally doing nefarious things — like murdering Theresa — on Dr. Ford's behalf. Any show with this subject matter is going to inspire speculation about whether some — or even all — of the "humans" are in fact also robots, and Bernard always seemed the most likely suspect. The show dropped various clues — last week,

David E. Kelley and Billy Bob Thornton mount impressive comebacks in 'Goliath'

David E. Kelley and Billy Bob Thornton mount impressive comebacks in 'Goliath'
In his day, Billy McBride was the best damn lawyer his colleagues had ever seen, a courtroom virtuoso and founding partner of one of the biggest law firms in the world. Now, though, he's an alcoholic who lives in a motel, works out of the bar next door, and is either a joke to those who only know him like this or a sad cautionary tale to those who remember his glory days. David E. Kelley, the writer who co-created Goliath, the new Amazon drama in which Billy (played by Billy Bob Thornton) is the central character, was once every bit the colossus of the TV legal drama. As creator and/or executive producer of shows like L.A. Law, Picket Fences, The Practice, Ally McBeal, and Boston Legal, Kelley won 10 Emmys himself — including the unprecedented, unlikely to be duplicated feat of winning the comedy and drama series Emmys in the

David E. Kelley Has Given Up on the Broadcast Networks, Partly Because His Last Show ‘Wasn’t Very Good’
David E. Kelley is preparing another comeback – and this time, he’s leaving the traditional networks behind.

Kelley’s next series, the Billy Bob Thornton legal drama “Goliath,” debuts Oct. 14 on Amazon. Early next year, he’ll premiere HBO’s “Big Little Lies,” starring Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, and Shailene Woodley, and after that, DirecTV’s serial killer thriller “Mr. Mercedes.”

Rebel Wilson as Ursula, more highlights from ‘The Little Mermaid’ live
Disney fans were in for a massive smile-inducing and tear-jerking event at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl on Friday when a 71-piece orchestra and talented vocal line-up performed the music of The Little Mermaid live to picture at a concert screening. Among the cast taking on the roles in the beloved 1989 animated film were Sara Bareilles as Ariel, Rebel Wilson as Ursula, Tituss Burgess as Sebastian, Darren Criss as Prince Eric, and John Stamos as Chef Louis. In a post-Merida, post-Elsa world, Ariel’s tale of longing to leave her father’s home and adventure into another world still resonates with audiences. The ever-catchiness of the music does too. That was evident as the power of nostalgia and the promise of a solid cast packed the Hollywood Bowl at Friday night’s show. The 17,000-seat venue had sold out within three hours, and two more shows were added (for Saturday and Monday) to meet demand.

Bill: the battle to get a brilliant smaller film noticed

Director Richard Bracewell chats to us about Bill, and the behind the scenes struggle to bring it to the screen.

Regular readers of Den Of Geek will well know that we're sizeable fans of the comedy Bill. It's available on DVD now, and we can't recommend it highly enough.

What wasn't so well known at the time of its release was that Bill went through a distributor change last year, which at one stage looked like it might derail a wide cinema release, and thus keep the movie away from many people's eyeballs. We thus spoke to director Richard Bracewell about the film, and the behind the scenes story of just what was going on...

Can we dig into the untold story underpinning Bill? In particular, the problems that most didn't see, about simply getting the film released? Can you take us through what happened? Because we

Sundance: ‘Wiener-Dog’ Filmmaker Todd Solondz Talks Drawing Inspiration From ‘Benji’

Sundance: ‘Wiener-Dog’ Filmmaker Todd Solondz Talks Drawing Inspiration From ‘Benji’
Todd Solondz has taken on pedophiles, teen bullies, rapists and all manner of deviants.

But nothing in his previous work will prepare audiences for his latest protagonist — an adorable dachshund. In “Wiener-Dog,” the “Happiness” filmmaker follows the titular pooch as it is passed around from one dysfunctional owner to another. This being a Solondz movie, there’s plenty of dark gags, from explosive doggy diarrhea to an automobile-induced trip to the pet cemetery, that are certain to make the comedy one of the most divisive films to come out of this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

It’s the first film Solondz has had at the Park City, Utah, gathering since “Welcome to the Dollhouse” premiered to great acclaim in 1995. In a fitting bit of symmetry, “Wiener-Dog” checks in with that film’s teenage protagonist Dawn Wiener, now living an unfulfilled life as a veterinary assistant. There’s a casting switch though.
