With O.J. Simpson's release from prison, it seems worth taking a look back at one of the most famous television shows to basically never be seen.
Fun and clever, with serious things to say about sexism and ageism, "Feud: Bette and Joan" chronicles the corrosive relationship between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford during and after the making of the 1962 film "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?" Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange are excellent as Davis and Crawford, respectively, in "Feud," the latest FX anthology series from writer-producer-director Ryan Murphy ("American Horror Story," "American Crime Story"). If you’re not familiar with the old movie on which this feud is founded, Baby Jane was conceived as a garish B-movie designed to trade on the fading wattage of Davis and Crawford — audiences got off on the spectacle of seeing these one-upon-a-time-glamorous stars lower themselves into the muck of a melodrama about sisters squabbling over their own faded youth and dashed dreams.
Love is in the air and on the boob tube this Valentine’s Day, so SuperFan Los Angeles has been asking every celebrity we’ve had the chance to interview a not-so simple question: Who is your all-time favorite TV couple? George and Weezy from The Jeffersons were the sole duplicate as everyone else has fallen in love with a different pair of lovers, or they found a tricky way of getting too sentimental by opting for duo of platonic life partners, like Abby and Ilana from Comedy Central’s Broad City, or Magnum and Higgins from Magnum, P.I. (Dominic Purcell from Prison Break is insistent that it was his favorite series AND “without doubt” his favorite TV couple). Star’s Benjamin Bratt also chose to get… creative, and he picked Law & Order’s Lennie Briscoe and his finest partner ever, Rey Curtis, played by none other than Benjamin Bratt.
The People v. O.J. Simpson raked in nothing but viewers, praise, and awards for FX, so all eyes have been on the network and producer Ryan Murphy for answers about the subsequent seasons of American Crime Story. At the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour, Murphy teased for SuperFan Los Angeles what the follow-up will cover: the U.S. government’s failures in handling the Hurricane Katrina disaster, as well as what happened from a first-person viewpoint, “within that microcosm, we go even more intimate to look at the various crimes that were committed — looting, what happened at Memorial Hospital, what happened at the Superdome,” Murphy divulged. The Katrina season has been delayed until 2018, and is in concurrent production with Season Three, which will dramatize the murder of Gianni Versace and air just six months after Season Two.

Most actors consider themselves pretty lucky if they book one hit TV show in their career. Sterling K.

Simpson: American Crime Story" and NBC’s "This Is Us."

Warning: This recap for “The Dream Team” episode of The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story contains spoilers.
Tuesday is the night all Kardashian groupies have been waiting for while watching FX’s American Crime: The People v. O.J. Simpson: It’s the assembling of Simpson’s “Dream Team” of lawyers—O.J.’s own personal Justice League of America, with a heavy emphasis on David Schwimmer’s Robert Kardashian as its Aquaman. The opening scene of this week’s third episode shows Kardashian squiring li’l Kim and her siblings to a restaurant where the attorney and close friend of Simpson is asked point-blank by one of his children, “Daddy, do you think O.J. did it?” Schwimmer plays Kardashian’s reaction the way Friends’ Ross might react to an accusation of being unfaithful to Rachel. The content of those words suggest that the late Robert Kardashian was an honorable person and a loyal friend.
In 1996, Cuba Gooding Jr., playing star wide receiver Rod Tidwell in Jerry Maguire, said four simple words: “Show me the money.” The scene in which they were uttered quickly became one of the most iconic movie moments in history, and that phrase was repeated over and over again, especially to Gooding himself. Now, 20 years after Jerry Maguire was released, people are still repeating that phrase — even to Gooding. “Do people still come up to you when they see you and go, ‘Show me the money?’” asked host Michael Strahan on Monday’s episode of Live With Kelly & Michael. “All the time. ...
