Fourth of July TV marathons: Catch TNT's 'Dallas' from the beginning!

Holiday TV marathons have become almost as great a tradition as Fourth of July fireworks. Wednesday’s best bet: TNT’s Dallas marathon. If you haven’t yet caught the reboot — as gloriously unruly as Larry Hagman’s eyebrows — you can watch the first four episodes (starting at 5 p.m. ET) leading into a new one at 9 p.m. ET. It’s already been picked up for a second season, so it’s safe to get invested.

Also at the top of our list: Two tributes to the late Andy Griffith. TV Land marathons The Andy Griffith Show from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET, while the Hallmark Movie Channel, not to be outdone, airs Matlock from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. ET the following morning.

What 'When Harry Met Sally...' was really about, according to Nora Ephron

In 1990, the year after When Harry Met Sally… hit theaters, Nora Ephron’s script was released as a paperback book with an 11-page introduction written by Ephron detailing how the film came about. The beauty of the Internet: You can read that intro when you “search inside this book” on Amazon. She details how director Rob Reiner told her he wanted to do a movie about two people who become friends and decide not to have sex because it would ruin the friendship, and, of course, it inevitably does. She describes in great detail the things Reiner and his producing partner Andrew Scheinman shared with her as they spent days discussing men (the way they wanted to go home as soon as sex was over, the excuses they would make up to leave). She explains how she realized Reiner — who was divorced at the time and reveling in his depression as much as Harry ultimately would — was the character she should write about. Because Harry had that “dark side,” Sally had to be light — more like Ephron (who, yes, just liked food the way she liked it).  READ FULL STORY

Ryan Gosling's gonna make you sweat -- VIDEO

No, not in bed, not this time. I’m sorry. Also, that’s gross. Look at him; he’s like 10.

Treat yo self to this 1991 footage of the Drive star –  back when he was an actual gosling — singing “When a Man Loves a Woman” (the Michael Bolton reprise!) and completely upstaging his older sister in a dance routine to C&C Music Factory’s “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)” in a Mormon talent show.

My overwhelming thought: “Macaulay Culkin WISHES.”  READ FULL STORY
