The Good Doctor Ep David Shore on Shaun's Devastating Family Reunion, His Relationship With Lea and More

The Good Doctor Ep David Shore on Shaun's Devastating Family Reunion, His Relationship With Lea and More
The Good Doctor‘s Shaun was an absolute wreck at the close of Monday’s fall finale — and it was Lea, not Carly, who was there to embrace him in his time of need.

In “Friends and Family,” Lea and Glassman accompanied Shaun on a trip to visit his estranged, ailing father Ethan (Battlestar Galactica vet Michael Trucco) and eventually chose to forgive him for his myriad shortcomings. But in their last interaction, a seemingly remorseful Ethan showed his true colors when he lashed out at Shaun and blamed him for Steve’s death.

‘Marriage Story’ Sweeps Gotham Awards, Winning Best Feature
Marriage Story,” a drama about a painful divorce between a loving Hollywood couple, won best feature at the Gotham Awards in downtown Manhattan on Monday night.

TV Review: ‘The Moodys’

TV Review: ‘The Moodys’
The stakes for holiday entertainment are a bit different than for entertainment generally: Given that Christmas programming is generally intended to place the viewer in a cozy state of mind, the urgency of creating characters with whom one wants to spend time is paramount. This is a less apt venue for roguishness than for cuddliness. Exceptions can be made, of course — but one isn’t earned by “The Moodys,” a new Fox limited series that depicts the holidays among a Chicago family as an enmity-fueled slog.

Denis Leary and Elizabeth Perkins play the parents of a spread-out nuclear family, whose

Ben Ferencz is a name you should know. He should be a known hero, a Nobel Peace Prize recipient. But unless you’ve seen a particular “60 Minutes” interview or “Prosecuting Evil” on Netflix, you may never have heard of him.

It was while watching the “60 Minutes” interview that director Barry Avrich heard about Ferencz’s story, which inspired him to make “Prosecuting Evil.” Ferencz is 99 years old, and the only surviving Nuremberg Trial prosecutor. He has seen the worst of humankind’s history and is still alive to tell his story.

Avrich sought out Ferencz and sat down with him.

David Chase Snags Santa Monica Villa
Seven-time Emmy winning TV producer David Chase, creator of the HBO cult-favorite mob series “The Sopranos,” has splashed out nearly $6.7 million for an extensively updated 1930s Spanish villa in a particularly plum Santa Monica, Calif., neighborhood. Presiding over a slightly elevated corner parcel of about a quarter-acre and measuring in at almost 4,700 square feet, the six-bedroom and 6.5-bathroom residence is secured behind high gates and just barely peeks out above a gigantic hedge.

Just inside the front door, the foyer features antique black-and-white marble floor tiles, a curved staircase with intricately scrolled wrought-iron banisters and an antique light fixture hung from a wood-paneled ceiling.

Agt Controversy: Howard Stern Calls Out 'Boys' Club' Atmosphere Following Gabrielle Union's Sudden Departure
Former America’s Got Talent judge Howard Stern is weighing in on the controversy surrounding the NBC reality competition series, following Gabrielle Union and Julianne Hough’s abrupt exits from the judges’ panel — and he’s pointing his finger at executive producer Simon Cowell.

“What he manages to do on all his shows is he constantly replaces the hot chicks with hotter chicks and younger chicks,” Stern said Monday on his SiriusXM radio show. “He sets it up that the men stay, no matter how ugly they are, no matter how old they are, no matter how fat they are, no matter how talentless they are.

The Best Overlooked TV Performances of the Decade

The Best Overlooked TV Performances of the Decade
There are so many elements of a great TV show that it’s sometimes hard to recognize when one is so vital that its absence would collapse the series around it. It can be a vital music cue, a key costume, or a well-placed prop.

Very often, though, it’s a performance. A sturdy pillar that allows the flashier pieces to flourish, the quiet heartbeat that gives life to its surroundings.

So, as part of our ongoing efforts to salute the standout work of this past decade, we each picked a handful of performances we thought deserved a second look. Often, it’s a single entry from a prolific 10 years spent in front of the camera. In all cases, these are roles that deserved more fanfare than they received.

Our only criteria: no performances that got Emmy nominations and there could only be one selection per show. (Both made these
