  2. Let's All Say Good-bye to John Oliver and Cry

    Amos Barshad

    Jon Stewart's summer sabbatical is the gift that keeps on giving. When he first split (to knock out his directorial debut, the Iranian drama Rosewater), general consensus was that we'd have to grin and bear it as John Oliver flailed around in the hos...

  6. The CW Is Making a TV Show Based on Fred Durst's Life? Great!

    Amos Barshad

    I've written before, at length, of my sober admiration for the survival instincts of Fred Durst, so I won't make too big a deal of this. But let's be real: That the CW, a real-enough network, wants in on the Bizkit business 16 years after he warbled ...
