_rbdave73dj1_hires2In the just released feature THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU, a hugely dysfunctional family is forced to live together in the same house for a week per the last wishes of the recently deceased patriarch. A dark comedy based on the book by JONATHAN TROPPER, the film is directed by SHAWN LEVY and features a stellar cast that includes JANE FONDA, JASON BATEMAN, TINA FEY, CONNIE BRITTON, ROSE BYRNE, TIMOTHY OLYPHANT, ADAM DRIVER and COREY STOLL.

Equally at ease with both drama and comedy, Academy Award-winning actress JANE FONDA plays the embarrassing matriarch with a penchant for oversharing to the hilt. Sitting down with reporters last week to promote the film, FONDA talked about how, while some of the cast improvised dialog, she felt much more comfortable sticking to the script.

13Bringing its first season to a close tonight on FX, MARRIED is a half-hour sitcom detailing the lengths an unhappily married couple will go to stay together. Despite the constant bickering, debt and declining sex life, they realize they’re best friends and continue to hash it out. Created by ANDREW GURLAND, the series stars Academy Award-winner NAT FAXON, JUDY GREER, BRETT GELMAN, JENNY SLATE and recurring players PAUL REISER, JOHN HODGEMAN and REGINA HALL.

We recently sat down with FAXON and GREER to talk about the season finale and, while they didn’t want to spoil anything, they were able to give the episode a tease.


The season finale of MARRIED airs tonight on FX.

11Premiering tonight on NBC, THE MYSTERIES OF LAURA is based on a Spanish series adapted for an American audience and centers on NYPD Homicide Detective Laura Diamond (DEBRA MESSING), who balances her day job with her off-duty hours spent as a single mom raising ridiculously rambunctious twin sons. Her life is even more complicated in trying to get her ex-husband (who also happens to be her new boss) (JOSH LUCAS) to sign their divorce papers. Unfortunately, the attempt to balance a dramatic police procedural with a broad domestic sitcom is less than successful and, if the pilot is any indication, the show is kind of a mess.

We sat down recently with DEBRA MESSING and JOSH LUCAS to talk about the show and they explained their characters.

THE MYSTERIES OF LAURA debuts tonight on NBC.

24Premiering tonight on Fox, season four of the quirky sitcom NEW GIRL promises to return the show to the kind of wacky humor it displayed in its first year on the air. In tonight’s episode the gang attends a wedding determined to find romance or, at least, something like it. Cast members ZOOEY DESCHANEL, MAX GREENFIELD, JAKE JOHNSON, HANNAH SIMONE, LAMORNE MORRIS and DAMON WAYANS JR. are all on their game and displaying the kind of perfect chemistry that made the show popular in the first place.

We recently sat down with SIMONE and MORRIS to talk about the new season and it was obvious that these two genuinely enjoy their work. In fact, it sounds more like going to camp than going to a job.

23For the first time in over fifty years, iconic entertainer BARBRA STREISAND will appear tonight on U.S. late night television as the sole guest on THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JIMMY FALLON. In addition to a chat segment with FALLON, STREISAND will perform a musical number from her new collection of duets titled PARTNERS.
Slated for release tomorrow, PARTNERS features 12 new duets with such world renowned male vocalists as BILLY JOEL, LIONEL RICHIE, JOSH GROBAN, JOHN MAYER, STEVIE WONDER and BLAKE SHELTON (to name just a few). Also included is a one-of-a-kind ‘virtual duet’ with ELVIS PRESLEY (STREISAND’S first choice as co-star in her 1976 version of A STAR IS BORN).

Always a reluctant self-promoter, STREISAND tends to let her work speak for itself. During an interview we did with her several years ago, she explained why she doesn’t do a lot of TV interviews. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)


Set the DVR for BARBRA STREISAND’S historic appearance tonight on THE TONIGHT SHOW STARRING JIMMY FALLON on NBC-TV.
