Hot In Cleveland to air LIVE episode to TV Land on June 19, 2013

If Betty White’s hosting gig on Saturday Night Live seems too distant of a memory for you already, then just wait another couple of weeks. Hot in Cleveland returns for the second half of its fourth season on TV Land with a special LIVE episode on Wednesday, June 19.

For basic cable? Even more rarefied airwaves. TV Land announced today that William...

John Oliver made his first appearance last night on Late Show with David Letterman.

Daily double! Angela Hoover’s “America’s Got Talent” audition airs same night as role in “Inside Amy Schumer”

Who is Angela Hoover? No, you’re not on Jeopardy or in jeopardy, for that matter. Just noting that millions of Americans newly discovered Angela Hoover last night via TV, and that they may already have seen her before — despite the onscreen graphic on America’s Got Talent that said she’s a 42-year-old “stay-at-home mom.” Hoover is a comedian and actress, and as she introduces herself to the NBC audience and the AGT judges (Howard Stern, Heidi Klum, Mel B. and Howie Mandel), she put her comedy career on hold for five years after moving to Las Vegas for her...
