  • Next season of ‘Downton’ will be Maggie Smith’s last Mar 2, 2015 2:04 PM
    The one character who can go toe-to-toe with Lady Mary’s dour-faced shade-throwing and emerge victorious will depart “Downton Abbey” at the end of next season. Pardon the sniffles, but if anything calls for weeping in your pudding, it’s this. For five seasons, Maggie Smith, 80, has ruled “Downton” as the Dowager Countess Violet Crawley. Lady Grantham, as she’s also known, is so old she’s earned the right to say whatever she likes, and this has resulted in five years worth of highly Tumblr-friendly retorts.

  • How John Oliver transformed the net neutrality debate Mar 2, 2015 5:00 AM
    The British comedian John Oliver introduced his fifth episode's explainer back in June 2014, joking that the Internet had vastly increased access to everything from cat pictures to “a case of coyote urine.” What followed was an acclaimed segment on net neutrality, that not only created significant buzz for his show but gave a bump to a political movement that scored its biggest victory to date on Thursday when the Federal Communications Commission bucked cable companies, the GOP, and its own previous stance, to ensure protections for Oliver’s beloved open-access Internet for millions of Americans.

Instead, the show was an immediate hit with viewers and critics, giving Netflix the financial clout and creative firepower to further transform how we watch and define “television.”

Nimoy himself died Friday at the age of 83. His work as Spock, a director, a photographer, a writer and, yes, even a singer, will live forever.

    On Wednesday's show, Conan O'Brien will be found in a familiar place: behind a desk. Or, rather, what he describes as a borrowed cafe table. In Havana, Cuba. But for most of the hour, "Conan" will find its host footloose and fancy-free, airing a talk show from this nearby but isolated island country for apparently the first time since Jack Paar took his own late-night show to Cuba in 1959.
