Does anyone remember when Winona Ryder made her film debut? It was during the film Lucas, which is not on this list sorry to say, but was one of her first stints in the film industry.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ vs. ‘Young Sheldon’ vs. NFL Football: Everyone’s A Winner in Thursday Night Smackdown — Ratings Watch

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ vs. ‘Young Sheldon’ vs. NFL Football: Everyone’s A Winner in Thursday Night Smackdown — Ratings Watch
It turns out there’s enough to go around ratings-wise on Thursday night. NBC has taken hold of the Thursday Night Football package, which it shares with CBS (both of whom simulcast with NFL Network), and its fortunes on the night have grown substantially. Now with two nights of NFL, plus staples like “This Is Us” and “The Voice,” NBC easily won the week ending November 12 in adults 18-49, and scored its first total viewers victory of the season.

But on Thursday nights, ABC and CBS also have reason to crow in the 8 p.m. hour: “Grey’s Anatomy,” which just hit its 300th episode, remains a potent force. And “Young Sheldon” is developing into a new hit behind “The Big Bang Theory.” (Also in the hour, Fox’s “Gotham” and The CW’s “Supernatural” also perform relatively respectably, although not nearly at the same level).

These Dart Nesting Dolls Are the Perfect Gift For Any Stranger Things Fan

The following contains minor spoilers for Stranger Things season two. Aside from the weirdly sexy mullet-rocker Billy, our favorite unlikable yet lovable Stranger Things character is definitely D'Artagnan the baby Demogorgon. Like Dustin, we can't resist Dart's adorable lil' face - so when we found out that Funko is debuting a Dart-inspired nesting doll in 2018, we naturally jumped out of our seats. The plush, as seen above, includes three parts: the youngest, sluggiest version of Dart, smiling tadpole Dart, and then Dart in Demogorgon form. Each of the two smaller plushies fits inside the largest, creating an adorable nesting doll of Upside Down proportions. There is no price listed yet, but the dolls will be available from Funko next year.

Stranger Things: Seriously, Though, When Are We Getting Season 3?

By now, you've probably watched Stranger Things season two. In fact, according to a ratings report, by the end of the first weekend, over 15 million people had watched the season two premiere, each individual episode averaged 4 million viewers apiece, and over 350,000 people watched the whole season in 24 hours. Which means we're all ready for season three. But just when should we expect it? Unfortunately, there is no official release date yet (and probably won't be for a while). But examining the season two production schedule should provide some clues - season one, not so much, since that was entirely in the can before anyone had even heard of Stranger Things. RelatedAll 33 Songs on the Stranger Things Season 2 Soundtrack Will Flood You With Nostalgia For season two, the cast returned to set for its first table read on Nov. 4, 2016. So the first season three table read could be taking place any time now.

How ‘Search Party’ Gets Darker, Funnier in Season 2 (Exclusive)

How ‘Search Party’ Gets Darker, Funnier in Season 2 (Exclusive)
Shows about the misadventures of twentysomethings are a television staple, but the TBS breakout Search Party -- with its sly combination of suspenseful thrills and tons of character-driven laughs -- is in a class all its own.

Alia Shawkat, whose rising profile includes work on Arrested Development and Transparent, plays Dory, the face of this ragtag search party. Dory’s restlessness to do something meaningful with her life leads her to look for former schoolmate Chantal Witherbottom after happening on a missing person sign at the series outset. She winds up dragging her reluctant friends into the search: her soon-to-be ex-boyfriend Drew (Stranger ThingsJohn Reynolds), her aggressively vapid-seeming besties Portia (Meredith Hagner, of Younger and Strangers on Facebook Watch) and Elliott (John Early, of the Wet Hot American Summer Netflix series and High Maintenance), and her ex-boyfriend-turned-journalist Julian (Brandon Micheal Hall, who also stars on The Mayor).

Why Author Andy Weir Took Readers to the Moon With ‘Artemis’ (Exclusive)

Why Author Andy Weir Took Readers to the Moon With ‘Artemis’ (Exclusive)
It would have been perfectly understandable for Andy Weir to rest on his laurels or take a victory lap after the success of The Martian, the rare novel that strikes lightning in a bottle on both a critical and commercial level. To top it off, the movie adaptation of the book, starring Matt Damon as stranded astronaut Mark Watney, was a monster hit, winning two Golden Globes and giving Weir even more cachet.

But writers write, and before long, Weir found himself back at the computer screen, ready to dive into another science-fiction yarn. And he did so without any expectations hanging over his head.

“I didn’t set out to top The Martian,” Weir tells Et. “A success like that is something a writer will get once in his whole career, if he’s lucky. I know that there’s a good chance that I could write 20 more books and people will say The Martian is the one

Actor Joe Keery revealed that his character was originally going to be a swimmer on the hit Netflix show, so he started working out to make sure he’d look good in a Speedo — only to find out the creators cut the storyline.
