In his role as a professional eater and drinker on Travel Channel's No Reservations, Anthony Bourdain's omnivorous bacchanals across the globe have become the stuff of foodie legend. So I braced myself for our meal at NYC's Takashi, a Japanese/Korean restaurant that's known for specialties like beef heart and flash-boiled...

Either Amy Schumer is the most modest woman in show business — or else she needs to have her hearing checked. Consider the facts: The 32-year-old's surprise Comedy Central hit, Inside Amy Schumer, is entering its sophomore season with a rabid following. Like Schumer herself, the series — a kinetic...

A Day Out With The Talk's Julie Chen and Sharon Osbourne

On paper, Julie Chen and Sharon Osbourne — the queen bees of CBS' girly gabfest The Talk — couldn't be more different. Chen, a pedigreed journalist, spent years rising up the ranks at The Early Show and hosting Big Brother. Osbourne, meanwhile, has passed the last decade-plus morphing from music...

Carrie Underwood and Stephen Moyer Prepare for The Sound of Music Live

Imagine for a moment that it's Thursday at 8pm. You innocently turn on your TV and flip to NBC, thinking maybe you'll catch an episode of Parks and Recreation. Instead, you encounter what is surely destined to be one of the most curious, ambitious and generally nutso undertakings in recent...

A Day Out With the Guys From New Girl

Truth be told, Max Greenfield, Jake Johnson and Lamorne Morris don't exactly come across as guys who'd frequent a fancy barbershop — the sort of post-ironic place where straight-razor shaves are administered by hipsters at $40 a pop. But when they gather at L.A.'s Baxter Finley early on a Saturday...

A Day Out With The Good Wife's Matt Czuchry

Matt Czuchry doesn't like to lose. As Cary Agos — The Good Wife's deliciously multidimensional assistant state's attorney with a grudge — Czuchry (pronounced zoo-cree) displays a fierce competitive streak. In person, the actor, 33, isn't much different — as he was only too happy to demonstrate over several merciless...

Andy Cohen Dishes on Five Years of Watch What Happens Live

It's the little late-night talk show that could. Next week, Watch What Happens Live — the kooky, wildly unpredictable chat-fest hosted by Andy Cohen — marks its fifth year on the air. That's no small feat, considering its very humble beginning as a shoestring web series anchored by a largely...

The Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato Get Ready to Rock

Reaching the set of Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam — tucked away in the wilderness about an hour outside of Toronto — requires passing through three separate security checkpoints manned by armed Mounties. It seems a little absurd, right up until a paparazzo darts out of the woods or...

A Night Out With Psych's Dule Hill

He may not be a megastar or a tabloid staple, but for the past 13 years, Dulé Hill has been busy quietly pulling off a showbiz coup: appearing back-to-back in two uncommonly long-running and beloved TV series, first for seven seasons as Charlie Young on The West Wing and now...

Spring Preview: Jennifer Morrison on What's Next for Once Upon a Time's Emma

If you need your memory jogged about the ongoing plight of Once Upon a Time's fairy-tale menagerie, you're not alone. When the series returns after its hiatus, Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and her son, Henry (Jared Gilmore), are enjoying an uncharacteristically tranquil existence in present-day New York City — with zero...
