    Hairspray Live is the story of Tracy Turnblad (Maddie Baillio, center right), a “pleasantly plump” teen set on making it as a dancer on a local TV station.

    Gilmore girls (and guys), we are in unprecedented territory. The original WB show Gilmore Girls ran from 2000 until 2007, which means you probably did not binge the episodes on a streaming service.

    The Feed

    The touch-maps, the projection calls; the reaches for explanation and chest-beating on MSNBC, while over on CNN Wolf Blitzer constantly interrupted John King's insistence on waiting for more Broward County numbers. The wayward attempts at live comedy and fun by Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah and the ladies of "The View" …

    Because CBS' election coverage pre-empted his usual "Late Show," Stephen Colbert took his act to Showtime for an 11 p.m. show, where the audience in his Ed Sullivan Theater had been unable to use their phones to keep up. It was up to Colbert to break the news to them elegantly, perhaps in an ad-libbed monologue. [Photo from video]
