Why TLC quickly ditched 'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo'

Mama June’s 20-year-old daughter Chickadee claims she was also victimized by the same child molester

Why TLC quickly ditched “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo”
Quick and decisive action was the only choice TLC had to make, says Josef Adalian, because it’s better to be safe than sorry. Plus, if the facts of the situation change, TLC could easily un-cancel the show. Still, “Honey Boo Boo’s” ratings have declined recently, and its loss won’t really hurt TLC.

'Interstellar' director Christopher Nolan says it's important 'to start looking up again'

The director's comments get at the heart of one of the film's themes: hope

BEVERLY HILLS — When you see "Interstellar," you'll get the sense right away that a deep admiration for exploration lies at the root of it all. Amid all of that epic imagery (and equally epic familial drama), there is a seething indictment of our general abandonment of space programs. At a press conference Friday afternoon, filmmaker Christopher Nolan and three of the film's stars spoke about their early experiences with space travel and the value of keeping NASA funded while continuing to push for the outer limits.

My hunch?

Peter: "Oh poop. Boobs."

Dana: "Oh poop. Purses."

Here are 10 reasons why you never underestimate Taylor Swift

Here are 10 reasons why you never underestimate Taylor Swift

Just look how many albums, how many followers, what age and what feats...

Listen, you don't have to be a fan of Taylor Swift to know that she has a massive impact on the popular music sphere.

You don't even have to like her, but there are definitely some career milestones the now-24-year-old singer and songwriter have achieved that you've just got to respect.

Swift is on the eve of releasing her new album "1989," which industry experts are pinning at selling between 800,000 and 900,000 of in its first week. It will undoubtedly be a No. 1 album... again... and on the lead-up to Christmas, it will likely be No. 1 for a long time.

And Swift literally shut down Hollywood Bouldavard in Los Angeles last night. Seriously. It was a parking lot of bodies.

And yet, the "Shake It Off" singer has long held the reputation for being a artist for the fans. She has been omnipresent during this promotional campaign, but even as she toured or didn't ahve any effort to be pushing, she still reaches out on her social networks, makes time for autographs, is more intimate than most with her Swifties.

Her clean image and "up" personality may have you underestimating her. Don't. Read 10 reasons why Taylor Swift's achievements and biggest moments may blow your hair back, regardless of the music. ("Out of the Woods" is brilliant, though, to be sure.)

Chalky's bookcase, Gillian & Jimmy, and more: Great 'Boardwalk Empire' moments

Sex, death and much strangeness in between

"Boardwalk Empire" did many things well in its run, which comes to an end on Sunday night at 9. The thing it did best of all — and therefore the thing that fills me with excitement about finale — is bring stories to an end. This is a show that killed off many characters in its five seasons, but always did so with aplomb, usually making sure that a character's final moment would be as memorable and appropriate as possible. But it also found expert, precise closure to stories that didn't involve death, so that the end of each season would inevitably make the episodes before feel like more than the sum of their individual parts.

Why Jesse Eisenberg's Luthor is a great fit for 'Suicide Squad'

Why Jesse Eisenberg's Luthor is a great fit for 'Suicide Squad'

Just how weird is DC going to let this one get?

"Suicide Squad" may be the smartest title on the entire slate of DC Comic movies announced recently by Warner Bros. With David Ayer onboard to direct, this is the story of how some of the nastiest bad guys in the DC Universe are pressed into service to do something for the government. It can play rougher than other DC movies and it would seem appropriate.

One of the key characters in any "Suicide Squad" movie should be Harley Quinn, the Joker's psychotic girlfriend, but I'm not sure if they're including her or not. Just because there is a rumor that Margot Robbie is being courted to star in the film, that doesn't mean they're using Quinn. I'd love to see Robbie play her, I think. That sounds terrifying. And sort of awesome. She could also easily be Amanda Waller, the doctor who puts the team together. But that's assuming she's even in talks with the studio, which I wouldn't bet on based on the way things were worded at the DC stockholder's meeting.

Review: 'Big Hero 6' is a safe but solid Marvel superhero movie in a Disney world

We'll see these characters again, but it feels like this one's almost too easy

One of the things that fanboys asked the moment Marvel was sold to Disney was, "Does this mean we'll see Pixar superhero movies?"

With Brad Bird currently working on a screenplay for "The Incredibles 2," Pixar has no need to get into the Marvel business, and Marvel's live-action movies are so successful that I can't really imagine them handling over a viable franchise to an animated division. Walt Disney Feature Animation was given permission to go through Marvel's vast catalog of characters to see if there was anything in there that they might spark to, anything they could make their own, and when they found "Big Hero 6," an obscure team book created by Man Of Action's Duncan Rouleau and Steven T. Seagle, they found their way in.

'Constantine' star Harold Perrineau discusses his 'warrior angel' and yelling 'Walt!'

'Lost' veteran discusses his angelic wings and his new NBC drama

Since he was first cast in NBC's "Constantine," Harold Perrineau has had a consistent refrain regarding his angelic new role: Manny, dapper winged consigliere to demon-busting Constantine, is no Clarence.

It's not a wonderful life in the world of "Constantine" and, in fact, it's Manny's responsibility to make it clear to the title character that dark days are coming and to impress upon Constantine the need to keep humanity on the map.

Earlier this week, Perrineau stopped by HitFix's video studio to discuss Manny's role in this universe, a role the actor has described as both "an angel of questionable intent" and also, in this interview, a "warrior angel."
