This piece was originally published in January. On Monday night, The Marvellous Mrs Maisel became the first Amazon show to win an Emmy and took home a total of seven awards. Amy Sherman-Palladino is exhausted and she’s not afraid to show it. “I'm going to have a nervous breakdown today at three. It's on the schedule,” she says dryly. She and Daniel Palladino, her husband and fellow producer, writer and director, are in London to talk about The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, their brand new, Fifties-set comedy drama series that arrived on Amazon Prime Video November 29, a mere 369 days after their enormously anticipated Gilmore Girls revival premiered on Netflix.

The 'American Idol' tour bus parked in downtown Little Rock on Tuesday. - Photo by Maggie McNeary The American Idol tour bus arrived in Little Rock on Tuesday ahead of auditions set for Wednesday. The bus was parked across the street from the Arkansas Repertory Theatre, located at 601 Main St., around 12:30 p.m. Bill Rector, a member of The Rep’s board of directors, said the bus’s position didn’t have anything to do with the theater. The musical competition reality TV show announced the Little Rock auditions earlier this year. The show’s website says that auditions will be held at 400 President Clinton Ave. Erik Holbrooks, the administrative coordinator for the River Market, said auditions are set from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the market’s east pavilion, behind Ottenheimer Market Hall.

Billionaire Tesla founder and rocket ship entrepreneur Elon Musk has crafted such an unusual public profile, one emboldened by a fervent cult of fans on social media, that it came as no real surprise that his personal and professional lives eventually intersected with musician Azealia Banks, whose uncanny ability to materialise in surreal celebrity dramas has turned her into pop culture’s very own Forrest Gump. A “problematic fave” who now plays a key, if inherently comedic, role in a possible SEC investigation into Tesla’s business practices, Banks was at one point a chart-friendly fashion darling, until a run of volatile scrapes permanently soured her public image. Along with a lengthy legal...

CULTURE & ARTS 08/20/2018 05:45 am ET How television's ménage à trois got a double dose of d**k. By Claire Fallon One bed. One set of rumpled sheets. Six bare legs, tangled in a languid heap. It’s episode 11 of SyFy’s fantasy series “The Magicians,” and Quentin (Jason Ralph), Eliot (Hale Appleman) and Margo (Summer Bishil) are waking up together in bed after a torrid ménage-à-trois. In flashbacks, we see Quentin, the protagonist, passionately kissing Margo, then Eliot. In the bleak light of morning, he lies naked in bed with them, wrapping his mind around the fact that he’s cheated on his girlfriend with a man and a woman. The episode first aired in March 2016, when such a scene was still something of an anomaly. Until recently, threesomes on TV were mostly confined to the female-female-male variety, save for those that only exist for the sake of homophobic jokes. For years, sitcoms like “Seinfeld,” … [Read more...] about It’s Time To Talk About All Those MMF Threesomes On TV
