Netflix embraces eccentric '80s wrestling with 'GLOW'

In an era of prestige television, it's rare that a show gets to be as guiltlessly entertaining as Netflix's GLOW.

Johnny Depp has taken a page out of Kathy Griffin's book when it comes to resisting the current occupant of The White House. 

During the introduction to his 2004 film The Libertine at Cineramageddon, the drive-in film portion of arts festival Glastonbury, the actor tried to get political with a super awkward joke.

Jimmy Kimmel had a serious chat with some kids about the GOP health care bill

Republicans unveiled their new healthcare bill on Thursday, so Jimmy Kimmel sat down with some future voters and leaders to get their take on all things health care, going to the doctor, and sharing.
