From Bedford Falls of “It’s a Wonderful Life” to Mayberry of “The Andy Griffith Show,” the idyllic small town has always held a special place in American pop culture, providing fictional refuge in times of real-life turmoil.
On Friday, anyone exhausted by the effort of avoiding political conversations with that one uncle should consider a visit to Stars Hollow, Conn., the impossibly quaint and harmonious community at the center of “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.”
Nearly a decade after “Gilmore Girls” concluded its seven-season network run, the whimsical dramedy about quick-witted single mother Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham), her overachieving daughter Rory (Alexis Bledel) and WASPy mother Emily (Kelly Bishop) returns in a much-anticipated Netflix revival.
An Olympian has taken home the Mirrorball Trophy once again as Laurie Hernandez joins Apolo Anton Ohno, Kristi Yamaguchi, Shawn Johnson and Meryl Davis as champion of ABC's 23rd season of "Dancing With the Stars."
The Final Five member is the youngest competitor (16) ever to win the reality dance competition. This the second time that professional dancer Valentin "Val" Aleksandrovich Chmerkovskiy grabs the trophy.
The teams of James Hinchcliffe and dancer Sharna Burgess, and Calvin Johnson Jr. with dancer Lindsay Arnold, came in second and third.
A visibly moved Ellen DeGeneres was one of the 21 celebrity recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Tuesday, and she took to Twitter to celebrate what had to be a surreal experience at the White House.
First, she took part in a large-scale Mannequin Challenge, along with fellow honorees Michael Jordan, Robert De Niro, Tom Hanks, Diana Ross, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and more:
When Prince passed away on April 21, he reportedly left hundreds of unreleased songs in a vault at his Paisley Park estate in Chanhassen, Minn.
The very tip of that musical iceberg is now visible, as NPG and Warner Bros. today released "Moonbeam Levels," a song originally recorded in 1982 during the same recording sessions for his smash album "1999." While it was later considered for inclusion on the 1999 album "Rave Un2 the Joy Fantastic" and has been bootlegged in the past, the song never officially saw the light of day until now.
The mid-tempo tune is largely piano-driven but features some vintage Prince guitar flourishes and subtle synth. Overall, it would fit comfortably on either "1999" or 1984's "Purple Rain," although it'd be a sin to break up the already well-established flow of those beloved records.
ABC News premiered the song for fans at a listening session at New York’s Cutting Room Recording Studios.
On Tuesday, Chance stopped by Trevor Nelson's BBC Radio 1Xtra and performed two songs with the Social Experiment.
During the performance of "All We Got" from his mixtape "Coloring Book," which opens with the lines: "This ain't no intro, this the entree/ Hit that intro with Kanye/ And sound like André," Chance took a moment to offer some words to his mentor.
The Los Angeles Police Department visited Kanye West as part of a disturbance call Monday, according to law enforcement sources, a day after the rapper abruptly canceled the rest of his tour.
The sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, did not provide details about the incident but confirmed that police were called about 1:20 p.m. The case turned into a “medical emergency” and was handed off from the LAPD to the Los Angeles Fire Department, the sources said.
West agreed to seek medical treatment, according to a law enforcement source, and he was treated for stress and exhaustion at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.

Pixar meets NASCAR meets nightmare in the summer 2017 release as Lightning McQueen hits the track as the leader of the pack and then, after a shifty move by another car, hits the track wall. Ominous smoke and sparks and slow-mo are involved as our hero launches sideways into the air doing barrel roll after out-of-control barrel roll.
"Black Panther" has added Academy Award-nominated actress Angela Bassett to its cast.
Marvel Studios has announced that Bassett will be playing Ramonda, mother of T'Challa (a.k.a. Black Panther).
In the comics, Ramonda was T'Chaka's second wife and one-time queen of Wakanda. Originally from South Africa, T'Chaka married Ramonda after his previous wife, N'Yami, died giving birth to T'Challa. She was abducted and held captive by a man named Anton Prestorius until T'Challa rescued her and welcomed her back to Wakanda.
Legendary Entertainment has reached an agreement with the estate of Frank Herbert for the television and film adaptation rights to Herbert’s "Dune," the iconic sci-fi book released in 1965.
Herbert’s tale centers around Paul Atreides and the politics of controlling the desert planet Arrakis and its resources.
Adapted into a 1984 film by David Lynch -- as well as a 2014 documentary about cult director Alejandro Jodorowsky's failed attempt to bring it to the screen in the '70s ("Jodorowsky's Dune") -- "Dune" has been an obvious influence on "Star Wars" and "The Matrix."
