The E! channel has become nearly synonymous with the Kardashians, having now hosted the original "Keeping Up With..." program and the subsequent spin-offs, including the ill-fated matrimony special of middle Kardashian Kim.
Many have questioned - including Barbara Walters - how viewers could be so riveted to the antics of E!'s reality family, especially considering they're not displaying a particular talent. (The Kardashians themselves consider being able to live out their lives in a fashion that appeals to so many to be a talent in itself.)
The president of the E! channel, Suzanne Kolb, has another answer as to why the Kardashians are such mainstays.
Gwyneth Paltrow has posted a helpful New Year’s Eve-themed newsletter on her GOOP website.
The Oscar-winning actress and domestic diva has laid out multiple options for those who plan to enjoy adult beverages on Saturday night. Some suggestions are more practical than others. Let’s run through them:
Water, of course, is the first thing mentioned. Alcohol dehydrates, as we know. "It is thus essential to drink a lot of water while drinking and before you go to bed... it can prevent a hangover or at least lessen one,” says Dr. Frank Lipman.
Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney told supporters in Iowa Wednesday about his plan to shut down funding for programs like PBS.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Romney laid out intentions to "stop certain programs" and include advertisements on the children’s show “Sesame Street.”
"Close them. Turn 'em off. Even some you like," he said of his plan.
This was the year that TV and Twitter truly joined forces.
Hashtags could be seen during shows like "Glee," "Fringe" and "The Voice," and CBS, Fox and USA were among the networks where actors live-tweeted while episodes aired.
One doesn't just watch TV or DVR their favorite shows anymore. They interact about what they're viewing on social media (and encouraging live tweeting certainly doesn't hurt ratings).
Let's take a look at the shows and moments that set Twitter on fire this year:
According to TheWrap.com, comedy legend Dan Aykroyd has a new project in the works. The actor is said to be joining forces with Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis for an upcoming comedy.
The funnymen have signed on to political parody flick “Dog Fight,” penned by “Eastbound & Down” writer Shawn Harwell. Galifianakis, Ferrell and Aykroyd will be starring and producing, along with Ferrell's pal Adam McKay.
Jay Roach is directing the movie, which has Ferrell and Galifianakis portraying bumbling politicians fighting for a congressional seat in North Carolina. Aykroyd's role hasn’t been announced yet.
