When Foxcatcher arrives in theaters this weekend — the dark, true-life drama about the murder of Olympic wrestling champion Dave Schultz (played by Mark Ruffalo) — it may leave you with a looming question, “Wait, is that really Channing Tatum?” No, not just because Tatum — like his co-star Steve Carell (who plays eccentric millionaire and Schultz’s murderer, John du Pont) — is virtually unrecognizable due to the film’s stunning physical transformations. It’s because Tatum, as the tortured Olympic wrestler (and Dave’s brother) Mark Schultz, reaches staggering new heights as an actor.

black-ish

by Phoebe Robinson

1) I’m not just writing that because VH1 is paying me the big bucks to do so. Although, later on, I am looking forward to balling out of control at Forever 21 even though I’m ghorghor years old. What? VH1 isn’t paying me that much in order for me to reveal my age. 2) Yes, some of you are watching — ABC did recently give ask for a full season order — but the show is now hovering around the 6.5 million range, which is pretty decent, but I’m waiting for this show to become the breakout hit of the season. So without further ado, I present to you the seven reasons why Black-ish is the best TV show you’re not watching.

Candice Bergen in Murphy Brown

-Aly Semigran

November 14 will mark 26 years since the CBS sitcom Murphy Brown hit the airwaves. The series, which ran for 10 seasons and won 18 Emmy Awards (including a record-breaking five Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series wins for star Candice Bergen), also happened to be at the forefront of a political firestorm in its heyday. A show about a 40-something single mother and career woman (!) touched such a nerve that the Vice President of the United States singled out the show as an example of the decay of family values in America.

Which TV Doctors Would You Trust with Your Life?

-Megan Meadows

Between all the hot love triangles and insane medical conditions that happen multiple times an episode in a TV hospital, would you actually trust any of these incredibly attractive people to be your real doctor? So, they know a lot of medical jargon we can’t always follow, but when push comes to shove you probably wouldn’t want some of these fictional docs as your own (lookin’ at you, Doogie Howser.)

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Star Terry Crews Shakes Up the Elevator with his Old Spice Voice

-By JARVIS

Have you ever had your whole day made by a stranger, and for the rest of that day, you weren’t able to stop smiling??? Well OMG that just happened to me today when I stalked the incomparable Terry Crews into the elevator!!! First of all, the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star has been one of my favorite actors ever since his hilarious break out role in White Chicks, and I’ve loved just about everything else he’s done (including his Old Spice campaign!). With a build like that, I’m sure nothing scares him. But I must say, my fangirl shriek did startle him a bit! I’m just glad he didn’t use his football skills to tackle me to the ground.
