Glow's Betty Gilpin Prepares For Wrestling Dramedy's Season 2: 'I Feel Like My Soul Was in a Five-Car Pileup'
The thing about being one of the leads in a 1980s-set dramedy about lady wrestlers is, your look is still stuck in the Reagan era even after the cameras stop rolling for the day.

“I’m looking at my gel French manicure now, and that, combined with my spray tan, every public place I walk into, I want to clink a glass, like, ‘Ding, ding, ding’ and announce that this is for a character and not from my personal choice,” Glow‘s Betty Gilpin says, chuckling.

The 2017 parade put up a 7.0 rating among adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters. The year-ago’s version landed a 7.7, which was a...

TV Ratings: Thanksgiving NFL Sees Primetime Fatigue

TV Ratings: Thanksgiving NFL Sees Primetime Fatigue
Thursday's big NFL showdowns dominated Thanksgiving TV but by a slightly smaller margin than in 2016.

The night's prime time game, Washington's 20-10 victory over the New York Giants, was down around 10 percent from the comparable NBC showing in 2016. The game averaged a 9.7 overnight rating among households. It's not as steep of a dip as the one seen last year, but it still stings on a night where little else is happening on TV.

The 2016 game scored a 10.8 household rating for the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Indianapolis Colts.
