When you put Kevin Bacon and five comedic actors like Ted Danson, Anthony Anderson, Brian Tyree Henry, Kumail Nanjiani, and William H. Macy around a table, you’re bound to get some hilarious off-the-cuff stories. In a recent roundtable hosted by the Hollywood Reporter, Bacon explained why he almost didn’t book his iconic part in Footloose. Although Bacon didn’t name names about who was shading him, in his defense, he has been happily married to Kyra Sedgwick since 1988, so at least one person finds him f***worthy.

The first season of The Good Place came to an end Thursday night, and fans were surprised by the “bad” twist ending. Warning: If you’ve been watching The Good Place, or plan on watching it, or think you might want to watch it at some point but you’re not sure when you’re gonna find the time because there’s so much good TV to watch and you’re still not caught up on Homeland but whether you end up watching it or not you don’t want the ending of the first season spoiled, then you should stop reading now.

When Michael (Ted Danson) informs Eleanor that her point total accumulation for good things she did on Earth is below average, she does something about it.
As The Good Place heads into its final three episodes of Season 1, creator Mike Schur stopped by Yahoo TV for a Facebook Live interview. As you can tell from the clip above, in which Schur shares the story of the time he and Neal Brennan (Chappelle’s Show) pitched a film idea to a hungover movie exec while Schur was a writer at Saturday Night Live in the late ’90s, it covers a lot of his career. Watch the full interview below to hear how Parks and Recreation was pitched by Schur and The Office‘s Greg Daniels as a show centered on the strength of Leslie and Ann’s friendship (14:00), his thoughts on that massive Brooklyn Nine-Nine fall finale cliffhanger involving Chelsea Peretti’s Gina (21:24), and his response to fans’ questions about why there are no children or senior citizens in The Good Place‘s version of the afterlife (11:03) and his favorite flavor of frozen yogurt (16:17, but spoiler: like Ron Swanson, he now prefers ice cream).
The Good Place returns Jan. 5, as the battle for Eleanor (Kristen Bell) continues.

While we wait to meet Shawn, the judge who will ultimately decide her fate, we chatted with creator Mike Schur to see what he can tease about Season 1’s final four episodes.
Bell explained to James Corden that when she was a kid in suburban Detroit, her mom gave her the haircut so she would fit in on an all-boys Little League team.
The Good Place is the season’s most charming new sitcom. That’s because it stars two delightful TV personalities, Kristen Bell and Ted Danson, in a show created by Mike Schur, the man who helped give us Parks and Recreation. Bell plays Eleanor, a woman who has done a lot of rude, mean things in her life which, now that her life has ended, finds her deposited in the Good Place, a kind of squeaky-clean, upbeat paradise that isn’t called Heaven. (Its alternative—the Bad Place—isn’t called Hell, but we get the idea.)
