Glow's Betty Gilpin Prepares For Wrestling Dramedy's Season 2: 'I Feel Like My Soul Was in a Five-Car Pileup'
The thing about being one of the leads in a 1980s-set dramedy about lady wrestlers is, your look is still stuck in the Reagan era even after the cameras stop rolling for the day.

“I’m looking at my gel French manicure now, and that, combined with my spray tan, every public place I walk into, I want to clink a glass, like, ‘Ding, ding, ding’ and announce that this is for a character and not from my personal choice,” Glow‘s Betty Gilpin says, chuckling.

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Ratings Deflate 7 Percent From 2016

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Ratings Deflate 7 Percent From 2016
Everyone loves a parade — some years more than others. Thursday’s 91st Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade slipped 7.4 percent from last year in the earliest-available Nielsen ratings numbers. Yesterday, the long walk through Manhattan averaged a 12.5 rating/27 share on NBC, per some very preliminary data out of the nation’s 56 metered-markets. Compare that with 2016’s march toward Herald Square, which had actually scored its top overnight rating in 13 years — a 13.5/29. The 2017 parade put up a 7.0 rating among adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters. The year-ago’s version landed a 7.7, which was a...

TV Ratings: Thanksgiving NFL Sees Primetime Fatigue

TV Ratings: Thanksgiving NFL Sees Primetime Fatigue
Thursday's big NFL showdowns dominated Thanksgiving TV but by a slightly smaller margin than in 2016.

The night's prime time game, Washington's 20-10 victory over the New York Giants, was down around 10 percent from the comparable NBC showing in 2016. The game averaged a 9.7 overnight rating among households. It's not as steep of a dip as the one seen last year, but it still stings on a night where little else is happening on TV.

The 2016 game scored a 10.8 household rating for the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Indianapolis Colts.

Once Upon a Time's Season 7 Reboot: What's Working, What Isn't

Eight episodes into Once Upon a Time‘s ambitious Season 7 — and with the midseason finale arriving on Dec. 15 — TVLine decided it was time to take stock of what’s working with the “requel”… and what has thus far been less-than-magical.

Season 7 got off to an admittedly bumpy start, depositing us as it did in a new world filled with largely new faces, while even the familiar ones weren’t quite (yet) the characters we had come to know and love.

RZA Files Trademark Opposition Suit Against ‘Woof-Tang Clan’

It is absolutely impossible to claim to be a Hip Hop fan and not have a clear understanding of who the Wu-Tang Clan is and what the group has meant to Hip Hop over the years. The Wu-Tang Clan is easily one of the top five rap groups of all time. In fact, one of their members, Method Man, is on my top 5 rappers of all-time list. I simply love his flow and persona.
