Jimmy Fallon and Chris Christie dig up some dad dances on 'Tonight'

Get your khakis pressed and hike your belt up high, because it’s time for some Father’s Day fun.

On Thursday’s edition of Tonight, Jimmy Fallon revived his popular Evolution of Dance franchise once again, bringing in New Jersey Governor Chris Christie to help him work through “The Evolution of Dad Dancing” — from the “Oh, Stop It! I’m Not Embarrassing You” to the “Dance You Do At A Springsteen Concert.”

Women in Film gala: Highlights from Cate Blanchett, Shonda Rhimes, and Kerry Washington's inspirational speeches

When you bring Cate Blanchett, Shonda Rhimes, and Kerry Washington together to discuss the state of women in entertainment, you know things are about to get interesting. Especially considering both the shockingly low number of women behind the camera and the fact that Frozen, co-written and directed by Jennifer Lee, is now the fifth highest grossing film of all time worldwide.

On Wednesday, Women in Film Los Angeles presented its 2014 Crystal + Lucy Awards to a formidable group of women, including Blanchett, Washington, Lee, Eva Longoria, and Rose Byrne. Though the theme of the event was “excellence,” the theme of the speeches seemed to be failure — the idea that equality in entertainment won’t be achieved until women are allowed to fail as spectacularly as men. As Blanchett said: “We are not gathering because we’re niche, but rather because I think female achievement is still largely discussed as being niche.”

Check out some of the best quotes from the evening below.

'Bachelor in Paradise' first look: Chris Harrison gets his Mr. Roarke on

Bachelor-in-Paradise.jpg

It’s a tough job, rose lovers, but someone has to travel to Mexico to help members of the Bachelor “family” continue their weird and objectively gross inbreeding find “love.” And that someone is Mr. Chris Harrison. As you can see here from this first look at Harrison on the job at Bachelor in Paradise, the dress code for facilitating fairy-tale romance in Mexico — where BIP is shooting — is far more relaxed than it is in America. I have so many thoughts. Click the photo for a full-length version and let’s discuss. READ FULL STORY

Meet the man who will die in the next 'Game of Thrones' book

When you play the game of thrones, sometimes you win and you die.

ABC News reports that Dave Goldblatt, a 30-year-old Facebook employee, has won the highest prize in author George R.R. Martin’s most recent charity auction, which is raising money for Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary and the Food Depot of Santa Fe. Goldblatt coughed up the Braavos-level sum of $20,000 to enter the “martyr” donation level — for which Martin promised to name a character after the donor (and then kill that character later in the series).

'Pretty Little Liars': Our top six suspects for Uber 'A' revealed

We probably won’t know who Uber “A” is until Pretty Little Liars ends, whenever that might be — but in the meantime, EW did some investigating and came up with six characters we think are most likely to be the dreaded leader of the A-Team. You’ve spent the last 24 hours trying to guess which six we chose, and now it’s time for the big reveal. (Just imagine each character is slowly turning around to reveal a black hoodie.)

Listen to Louis C.K. recount the true story behind last night's 'Louie'

Monday night’s feature film-length Louie, dubbed “In the Woods,” was experimental — but the part about how young Louis got his trees was true.

The comedian has previously developed and performed stand-up about the time when, as a pot-obsessed teenager, he found a dealer who promised to give him an ounce of pot in exchange for stealing a scale from one of his science classes. When C.K. obliged, the dealer then promised him more pot — if he stole more. The 13-year-old ended up stealing 14 scales, then smoking all the pot himself.

'Murder in the First': Not just another cop show

Creating a worthwhile new cop show is tough. At this point, we’ve seen just about every possible variation within the genre, from comedies to reality shows, and every dramatic procedural in between. Plus, two of the biggest cop shows are still in rotation: Law & Order: SVU clearly knows the formula for success, and then there’s the buzzed-about True Detective, which recently raised the bar for just about every detective show from this point forward. So what do you do when everything’s been done and been done well? Spoiler: Murder in the First might have just done it. READ FULL STORY

'The Bachelorette' special: 10 things we learned from the never-before-seen footage

Hello, rose lovers. Let me first offer my condolences for the fact that you’re currently sitting on your couch without having experienced any of the drama that typically lights up your Mondays. You know, the moments when Marcus makes you feel awkward and as though he’s willing to tattoo Andi’s name across his forehead? Or the moments when Brian warms your soul because he genuinely sucks at reading signals? Or even the moments when someone confesses yet another sob story to add to the season of sob stories? I know you miss all of it. I do, too.

But save your tears for the cameras, y’all, because we have a clip show to digest. More specifically, we need to dissect the bits of never-before-seen footage we just watched. And yes, I’m talking about how the whole house hates Nick.

Basically, after the show decided to cut last week’s rose ceremony to talk about Eric Hill, it finally gave us an inside look at what happened after Eric’s dramatic departure. Here’s what we learned: READ FULL STORY
