    rupaul's drag race

    "RuPaul's Drag Race" has featured 10 seasons full of lip syncs, death drops, and iconic one-liners. The show has turned into an Emmy-winning reality show, complete with spin-offs, conventions, and tours.

    The show is entertaining, but what goes on backstage is even more shocking than what happens on the runway. Keep scrolling to find out some of the most surprising facts about "RuPaul's Drag Race."

    Charles said it took only one pitch meeting for the show to be picked up.

    RuPaul Charles told Us Weekly that it only took him one pitch meeting to sell the show, presumably to its first network, Logo. It now airs on VH1. 


    The queens get two chances to walk the runway.

    The show makes it look like the queens only get one chance to sissy that walk, but they actually get two. The contestants walk once with music and once without so that the judges can voice their quippy commentary the second time around.

    Contestants are handed an iPod at the beginning of the season which features each of the lipsyncs.

    It takes a bit of preparation for each week's challenge, so at the beginning of the season, the contestants are given an iPod with each week's songs on it, but they don't know which will be chosen and when.

    Jon Snow Daenerys Targaryen Game of Thrones s7e3


    As 2019 begins, "Game of Thrones" fans find themselves officially in the year when HBO's epic series will come to a dramatic end. One of the longest running threads to tie up will be the revelation that Jon Snow is really the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen, making him first in line of succession to the Iron Throne ahead of his new royal lover Daenerys. 

    "Daenerys's lifelong dream has been to avenge her family and claim her rightful seat on the Iron Throne," Emilia Clarke said in a new interview with TV Insider. "She truly loves Jon. Were she to find out about his title, it would cut deep."

    game of thrones daenerys jon snow

    Filming has already wrapped on the series and HBO announced the final season will begin sometime in April. That means Clarke and her "Game of Thrones" co-stars all know if Dany finds out about Jon's Targaryen blood. But the cast is keeping the story secrets hypothetical for now. 

    "Jon is someone who plays by the book. He cannot lie," Kit Harington said in the same TV Insider feature. "Finding out about Dany would be very hard for him."

    Their vague teases of trouble invoke a good question: Will both Jon and Daenerys learn the truth on the coming season? 

    Right now, the only two people on the show who know Jon is a Targaryen prince are Bran and Sam. They're both at Winterfell, which is where Jon and Dany's boat is headed, but there's no guarantee the four of them meet up and have time for a nice, long, life-changing chat. The Night King has broken through the Wall and is marching south with his army of dead. What if there's no time for Sam and Bran to break the news to Jon?

    Jon Snow Daenerys Tagaryen Game of Thrones finale boat

    As we noted last year, both Jon and Daenerys fit in with description of the long-prophesied hero Azor Ahai — a legendary figure whose myth includes the tragic death of their loved one. Given author George R.R. Martin's promise of a "bittersweet" ending, it doesn't seem likely that both Jon and Daenerys survive the series. 

    What if one of their deaths comes before they can learn the truth about each other? And that's to say nothing about the possibility of Daenerys getting pregnant with Jon's child before they realize they're related.

    We'll have to wait until this spring to know for certain what comes next for the two likely doomed lovebirds.

    its always sunny in philadelphia cast

    • "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" has been around for 13 seasons.
    • The concept of "It's Always Sunny" was born out of a nightmare.
    • Most of the time, all the actors do their own stunts.

    It's hard to believe that the gang from Paddy's Pub has been around for a full 13 seasons. The group of overgrown degenerates has tackled the most controversial subjects and found a way to transform it into slapstick comedy.

    We rounded up some things you may not know about "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." 

    The concept of "It's Always Sunny" was born out of a nightmare.

    Rob McElhenney, who plays Mac, told Entertainment Weekly that the idea for the show actually came about through his "night terror" about a cancer-plagued man and his insensitive friend. By 2005, they create their pilot episode: which was tastefully titled, "Charlie Has Cancer."

    The "pilot" episode was made on a $100-$200 budget.

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show's first ever episode was on an extremely tight budget — around $100-$200 (other sources have it at less than $100). Eventually, the video got a green light, thanks to FX general manager John Landgraf, and the budget was increased to $400,000, according to The LA Times.

    Most of the time, the actors do their own stunts.

    This one is pretty surprising, considering the fact that the gang usually ends up in some pretty dangerous situations. Kaitlin Olson told Yahoo News that during an episode for season four, she actually rammed her head into a car door.

    "They had a stunt double there, and I was like, 'Yeah, but you're going to watch [me] all the way out and then [the double] throw her body,'" Olson said. "I think that's part of the acting. I don't want someone else to do it for me. So, yeah, I needed to see a chiropractor many times afterwards, but whatever, it worked"

    Lisa Kudrow, John Kerry, and Emma Thompson

    • "Cheers" is one of the longest-running sitcoms of all time, with 275 episodes and 11 seasons.
    • Over those 11 years, many famous faces walked through the front door of "Cheers."
    • Here are 30 of the most memorable celebrity guest stars and cameos.

    Sometimes, you really do just want to go where everybody knows your name. And for 11 years, the Boston bar Cheers was that place for a cast of lovable misfits.

    You had Sam, the owner of the bar and recovering alcoholic, and Diane, his love interest and a pretentious waitress. And when she left, you had the neurotic bar manager, Rebecca, take her place. There was Coach and Woody, both very dim but well-meaning bartenders, and Carla, the tough waitress who never held back her true feelings. And to round out the cast, there was Cliff, a trivia-spouting postman, Norm, who complained about his wife but loved her dearly, and Frasier, a therapist.

    Besides your core cast, there were many people who walked through Cheers only once or twice, never to be heard from again. And some of those people were extremely famous, like Emma Thompson, Lisa Kudrow, and Dick Cavett.

    Keep scrolling to see 30 celebs you totally forgot appeared on "Cheers."


    Thirteen years before starring in "Nanny McPhee," Emma Thompson appeared in a season 10 episode as the children's entertainer Nanny Gee.

    Thompson's character was Frasier's heretofore unmentioned first wife — which was revealed when he went to one of Nanny Gee's children's shows with his current wife, Lillith, and their son Frederick. It became quite clear that Nanny Gee (real name Nanette) wasn't fully over her ex-husband.

    Frasier and Lillith's off-and-on relationship ran through eight seasons of "Cheers," and nine seasons of Frasier's spin-off, "Frasier," so it was always delightful to learn something about their lives before they wandered into Cheers, including never-before-mentioned first wives.

    "Jeopardy!" host Alex Trebek appeared as himself when one of the bar's most "knowledgeable" patrons appeared on the game show.

    Cliff, a postal worker, and his best friend, Norm, an oft-unemployed accountant, strolled into the bar every day, and hijinks ensued. While Norm was the more practical, street-smart one, Cliff was known for spouting off (mostly wrong) trivia and facts about any subject.

    However, in a season eight episode, Cliff was able to show off his trivia expertise on an episode of "Jeopardy!" He almost won but answered the Final Jeopardy question incorrectly after wagering all his winnings, making him verbally attack the "Jeopardy!" host.

    Trebek later stopped by Cheers and made amends with Cliff.

    Marcia Cross played Rebecca's sister in season seven.

    After Diane left the show, Rebecca, played by Kirstie Alley, was brought in to replace her in season six. As time went on and viewers became fond of Rebecca, more was revealed about her back story, including that she had a sister, Susan.

    Susan proved to be the exact opposite of Rebecca, and the two sisters didn't get along because Susan used to steal all of Rebecca's boyfriends when they were younger.

    • Amelio's character, Dwight, last appeared on the "TWD" during season eight.
    • The "Walking Dead" star told fans at a convention in December his character was "alive in the world somewhere."

    "The Walking Dead's" Austin Amelio hinted at Walker Stalker Con New Jersey that fans may see his character Dwight again in the zombie apocalypse. It turns out it just won't be on the main AMC show. reported Dwight will be crossing over to spin-off "Fear the Walking Dead," according to multiple sources involved with the show. INSIDER confirmed Amelio will indeed head to the companion show for its fifth season.

    At Walker Stalker Con New Jersey in December, Amelio said the former Savior is still alive and kicking.

    austin amelio jayson warner smith twd

    Amelio will be the second cast member from "The Walking Dead" to crossover onto "Fear." Lennie James joined the show during its fourth season as his character Morgan. 

    Fans last saw Dwight on season eight of "TWD" after the war with Negan ended. Daryl spared his life, but told him if he was to ever return that he'd personally kill him. In response, Dwight went in search of his ex-wife Sherry (Christine Evangelista). 

    sherry dwight the walking dead

    Evangelista left "TWD" during season seven and starred on E!'s "The Arrangement." The show was recently canceled leaving hope that we could potentially see her return to the franchise. 

    INSIDER couldn't confirm whether or not Evangelista may also appear on "Fear" with Amelio. Regardless, we're holding out hope for a Dwight and Sherry reunion. But in the world of the zombie apocalypse, as we know, love usually doesn't come out on top.

    You can follow along with our ongoing "Walking Dead" coverage here. "TWD" returns to AMC Sunday, February 10 at 9 p.m. There is no set premiere date for season five of "Fear TWD" yet.

    Throughout the evening, the show surprised viewers as it won two awards for best TV comedy and best TV actor for Douglas' role as the titular character, Sandy Kominsky.

    Notably, people were upset favorites like NBC's "The Good Place" and Amazon's 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" lost to the Netflix series.

    Many on Twitter said they never even heard of the Netflix show, which premiered on Netflix in November.

    • The 2019 Golden Globes took place Sunday night at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.
    • INSIDER was on hand for the official after-party where the night's winners got their statues engraved.
    • We mapped out all the best behind-the-scenes moments you want to know.
    • Among the highlights were Richard Madden was gleeful, Glenn Close and Patricia Clarkson each got a round of applause from the staff, and Bill Murray sneaked back into the catering area for a sandwich. 

    Sunday evening's Golden Globes award ceremony, hosted at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, was a celebratory evening of movies, television, and Hollywood's biggest stars.

    INSIDER was on hand at the official after-party where many of the Golden Globe winners came to get their new statues personally engraved. 

    Let's walk through the night together to reflect on the best celebrity moments of the evening you definitely didn't get to see on camera. 

    7:51 p.m. My first major celeb sighting of the night occurs when the meme-famous "Fiji water girl" offers me the last bottle of Fiji water on her a tray. I take this as an auspicious sign.

    8:04 p.m. Richard Madden, who won best actor in a TV series (drama) comes in the room grinning like a kid on his birthday. His shock and excitement over the win for his role on "Bodyguard" is palpable. He snaps selfies, takes videos on his cell phone of the engraving happening, wipes his forehead with a handkerchief, and stares lovingly at the award when it's finally handed back to him.

    8:17 p.m. As Madden turns to leave, he catches the eye of Darren Criss ("The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story"). Criss holds up his own Golden Globe in acknowledgment. As Criss gets farther down the line, he turns away from the engraving to look at the TV showing Rami Malek’s acceptance speech for best actor in a drama movie. When "Bohemian Rhapsody" is announced as the best picture winner, Criss turns again and slow claps.

    8:29 p.m. "Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" star and best actress winner Rachel Brosnahan watches with fascination as Aldo Padilla, a staff member for the company behind the design of the award, uses a cell phone to scan the bottom of her Golden Globe before handing it back to her.

    8:31 p.m. I ask Padilla what exactly he's doing to the awards, and he explains how the statues are microchipped and programmed with a verification system. He scans each award in order to verify it's real and belongs to the named winner standing in front of him.

    8:33 p.m. Jeff Bridges winks at a massive crowd of fans watching him wait for his Golden Globe to be returned to him.

    8:44 p.m. Chris Miller pretends to use his Golden Globe award for best animated feature ("Spider-man: Into the Spider-Verse") as a weight and does several bicep curls for the camera. The entire movie team — Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, Robert Persichetti Jr., Peter Ramsey, Christina Steinberg and Rodney Rothman — are the most exuberant and joyous group I see all night. 

    8:47 p.m. Lord is given back his newly engraved award. "Now what?" he asks. "Onto the pawn shop?"

    9:00 p.m. Christian Bale and Glenn Close are chatting and smiling as they both wait for their Golden Globes.

    9:12 p.m. Glenn is the first star to get a round of applause from the large engraving team as she accepts her finished award and turns to leave.

    9:36 p.m. Bill Murray is suddenly standing next to us, on the wrong side of the barrier. The security guard is conflicted, because she's not supposed to let anyone up that way.

    9:37 p.m. Murray changes direction and instead wanders back towards the catering kitchen, shaking the hand of the server along the way. He resurfaces from the kitchen with a plate of food in hand. He stands off to the side, behind a curtain, to avoid being seen. Of course, I see him.

    9:46 p.m. On my way to the bathroom, I pass Fiona Shaw ("Killing Eve,""Harry Potter") and resist the urge to talk to her about Aunt Petunia.

    9:52 p.m. Mahershala Ali puts his arm around Amatus Sami-Karim while they watch his statue get engraved.

    9:56 p.m. Brian Currie, ahead of Ali in line, has two awards. When Ali comes to collect his Golden Globe, Padilla double checks with his co-workers that Ali only has the one statue. Ali cracks up, feigning offense at the way he was just almost roasted for only having one Golden Globe instead of two.

    9:59 p.m. A man walks up to the barrier in front of me, scanning the area for a server. Seconds later Patricia Clarkson comes up behind him and touches his shoulder, saying "Champagne!" Or maybe she said "No champagne!" because the man soon procures two bottles of Fiji water. After gulping down some water, Clarkson and her ethereal dress train dance around to the loud music blaring.  

    10:06 p.m. Clarkson's engraved Golden Globe is returned to her, and she thanks the team profusely. This triggers the second applause of the night from the engraving team, all of whom cannot stop beaming at her.

    Samsung TV (iTunes)

    • The next Samsung televisions will enable voice control through your existing Amazon Echo and Google Home smart speakers.
    • By saying, "Hey Alexa" or "OK Google," you'll be able to turn your TV on or off, change channels, and even swap input selections.
    • Rather than building the assistant software and associated hardware into its TVs, Samsung will require an existing Google Home or Amazon Echo device to power voice control.

    Samsung's next line of TVs, coming this year, will offer voice control through Amazon's Alexa and Google's Assistant. 

    But there's a caveat: You'll need your own Amazon Echo or Google Home device to power that voice control. Rather than including support for Amazon and Google's voice-controlled assistants in its TVs, Samsung is adding support for existing devices. 

    According to Engadget, Samsung TV owners will be able to power on/off their sets, change channels, turn the volume up/down, and even swap inputs by talking to their smart device.

    Samsung's own voice assistant software, Bixby, will co-exist with support for Amazon and Google's competitors; Bixby is built into Samsung TV remotes.

    Samsung TV (airplay)

    Samsung is making major announcements this week at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, and this isn't the first major news we've heard about Samsung's upcoming televisions: The electronics giant is working with Apple to bring the iTunes App to Samsung TVs (seen above).

    In this bizarre scenario, it's not hard to imagine commanding your Amazon Echo to play a movie you bought through Apple's iTunes on your new Samsung TV. 

    It's unclear if voice command functionality will come to previous Samsung smart TV models through software updates — representatives speaking with CNET said it may arrive on "2018 or earlier sets in a future software update."

    • Whether they were a comedy, drama, or a blend of both, medical TV shows have been popular for decades. 
    • Fans love shows like "Grey's Anatomy" and critics have given "M*A*S*H" a lot of praise.
    • "Nurse Jackie,""The Knick," and "The Good Doctor" have also been a hit with some critics. 

    Since the immense success of the drama "ER" over two decades ago, there has been no shortage of medical shows on TV. These series' dramas range from drama to comedy and everything in between and they've featured famous and rising actors like George Clooney, Ellen Pompeo, and Zach Braff. 

    From classics like "M*A*S*H" to newer series like "The Good Doctor," here are the 12 of the best medical TV shows that have aired on television.

    "Chicago Med" is a well-paced entry in the medical genre.

    In the same style of "Chicago Fire" and "Chicago PD,""Chicago Med" is the third entry in Dick Wolf's drama series. The medical drama is currently on its fourth season and stars Colin Donnell, Oliver Platt, and S. Epatha Merkerson. Critical reviews for the show generally range from favorable to mixed. Among fans "Chicago Med" has largely retained its place in the ratings and premiered its most recent season to 7.78 million viewers.

    In his review for Roger Ebert, critic Brian Tallerico praised the show for its quick pacing and escapist feel. "Nothing lags, nothing bores, even the familiar," wrote Tallerico. "In today's network TV world, after a long day at work on a Tuesday, just a quick escape to a world of beautiful men and women having much tougher days than we just did can be enough."

    "Doogie Howser, M.D." was a light-hearted show about a medical prodigy.

    "Doogie Howser, M.D." is a comedy-drama that premiered on ABC in 1989 and ran for four seasons. The show starred Neil Patrick Harris as Doogie Howser, a 16-year-old prodigy who graduated from medical school at age 14 and began his residency at a hospital in Los Angeles. The show was canceled in 1993 due to low ratings, but it is still remembered fondly by fans who were Doogie's age when the show premiered.

    "'Doogie Howser, M.D., is a true product of its time: the late '80s and early '90s,"Common Sense Media's Matt Springer wrote in his review of the show. "It's easy to be distracted by the show's dated look and feel, but Doogie was actually ahead of its time when it came to dealing with issues important to teens with humor and honesty."

    "The Resident" is darker than most medical dramas.

    A newcomer in the realm of medical TV shows, "The Resident" is still proving itself as a show. The series takes place in a Georgia hospital and follows the lives of the hospital staff, namely a resident (Matt Czuchry), a medical intern (Manish Dayal), and a nurse practitioner (Emily VanCamp). The show has slowly gained more viewers over time and a recent November episode had the highest total viewers since the show's premiere in early 2018.

    TV Line critic Dave Nemetz saw the show as a breath of fresh air amidst TV's crowded medical genre. "Genuinely gripping and armed with a deep cynical streak, 'The Resident' takes a hard look at the thorny ethical issues surrounding today's health-care providers," Nemetz wrote. "[It] delivers a refreshing jolt of darkness to a genre that's too often swimming in schmaltz."

    a series of unfortunate events season three

    Warning: This post includes major spoilers for the "A Series of Unfortunate Events" book series and the third season of the Netflix show.

    • Netflix's "A Series of Unfortunate Events" hides details and Easter eggs in each episode.
    • Some are references to the book series, while others are references to real things in pop culture.
    • Some details are hidden in the background. 

    The third season of Netflix's "A Series of Unfortunate Events" is full of Easter eggs and references for viewers to catch. Like the first and second seasons, the show slips these details in through character lines and hides them in the background of scenes. 

    The show is adapted by Daniel Handler, who wrote all 13 books the show is based on under the pen name "Lemony Snicket." Snicket also serves as the narrator of the Baudelaire orphans' lives. The third and final season adapts the final four books in the series: "The Slippery Slope,""The Grim Grotto,""The Penultimate Peril," and "The End." 

    Here are 39 Easter eggs and references you may have missed on the third season of "A Series of Unfortunate Events," streaming on Netflix now.

    Kit escapes from the Woman With Hair But No Beard and the Man With a Beard But No Hair using dragonfly wings.

    Kit most likely got those wings from Beatrice, who was seen wearing them at the VFD party when Olaf pushed her off the building. We know Beatrice didn't die in the fall because she is the Baudelaires' mother, so those wings have proven to be helpful for both Beatrice and Kit. 

    Olaf references Nickelback when giving his henchpeople an acting "lesson."

    Nickelback is a real band, which is often considered one of the worst bands.   

    Scoutmaster Brucie leads Troop 113 of the Snow Scouts.

    In the books, the Scoutmaster is Carmelita's Uncle Bruce.

    LG Signature OLED TV R

    • LG's absurdly thin "Signature" series of TVs is getting even more absurd: The latest model is a "rollable" TV.
    • When not being used, the skinny TV rolls down into a box that also doubles as a soundbar.
    • There's no price or release date just yet, but LG says the rollable TV will ship in 2019.

    Before reading any further, you have to see this new television in action:

    Pretty impressive, right?

    That's the rollable TV from LG. With the press of a button, it disappears into a relatively small rectangular box.

    But the LG Signature OLED TV R, as it's officially known, is more than just novel trickery — it's a unique, impressive approach to new TV design. It was unveiled on Monday during the opening day of the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, and it's already a standout of the event.

    Here's what we know about it thus far:

    SEE ALSO: The futuristic LG TV that rolls itself in and out of a box could hit living rooms in 2019 — check it out in action

    The first wallpaper-thin, rollable TV from LG was shown during a stage presentation on Monday at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas:

    As you can see above, there are varying levels of openness to the rollable TV from LG — this was actually shown previously, last year when LG debuted a prototype at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show

    The difference in this case is that the proof of concept has become a reality: The LG Signature OLED TV R is the next step in the evolution of its "Signature" edition TVs — announcing for the first time a consumer version of the rollable TV concept.

    The thinness of the Signature series gets put to good use in a rollable format, and the gimmick of a rollable TV becomes a genuinely useful feature. 

    It's a gorgeous display capable of top-of-the-line visuals:

    LG's Signature series boasts 4K Ultra HD / HDR capability that's as good or better than the competition, and it does it on an OLED screen that's less than a quarter-inch thick. 

    With the LG Signature OLED TV R, LG is putting that capability into a 65-inch screen that rolls into a relatively slim, attractive piece of furniture when you're not using it.

    Here's what that might look like if you lived in an impossibly nice Manhattan apartment with remote-operated windows and a supervillain-like view of the New York City skyline:

    The idea is simple and logical: To hide the massive black rectangles — screens— that are prevalent in the modern home.

    LG's solution is to roll it into an austere rectangular box that's easily mistaken for modernist furniture. 

    The TV can also be used as a slimmer screen for simple functions, like listening to music or seeing the weather and time:

    One benefit of the design of LG's rollable TV is that it can be used in more ways than a standard TV. In "Line" mode, it's got a dedicated user interface that enables music playback and conveys information like time and weather. You can even use the built-in Amazon Alexa assistant to command it with your voice.

    Better still: Even when the display is all the way closed, the soundbar built into the base can be used as a speaker. And for you audio heads out there, LG describes the soundbar as a, "4.2-channel, 100W front-firing Dolby Atmos audio system."

    bachelor villains

    After 21 seasons of "The Bachelor," 14 of "The Bachelorette," and the franchise's various spin-offs, it's safe to say that the show has produced a lot of romances — and a lot of villains. While some contestants show up on night one hoping to make a connection with ABC's leading man or lady, there's always at least one whose primary goal is to shake things up… and not in a good way.

    Some of these villains are victims of editing, but others definitely enjoy creating drama and stirring the pot, even if it means they get sent home early.

    Here are some of the biggest villains from the "Bachelor" franchise, ranked. It's safe to say they didn't join the show for the right reasons.

    16. Krystal Nielsen didn't go on "The Bachelor" to make friends

    On Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s season of "The Bachelor," Nielsen was all about snagging as much of his attention as possible, but unfortunately, it ended up blowing up in her face. After a bowling date gone wrong, Nielsen couldn't say enough negative things about Luyendyk and his contestants. Fortunately, she was able to redeem herself on "Bachelor in Paradise," where she got engaged to Chris Randone.

    15. Corinne Olympios tried to steal Nick Viall's heart

    On Nick Viall's season, Olympios was the contestant who fans loved to hate. Despite the fact that she was an adult, she couldn't stop talking about how she had a nanny, and she ruthlessly interrupted other women when they tried to get their time with Nick.

    14. Olivia Caridi practically became a meme

    Olivia Caridi entered Ben Higgins' season of "The Bachelor" swinging — from night one, she was willing to do whatever it took to catch Higgins' eye. After a few eye-roll-inducing comments, like when she tried to say she understood hardship because she'd been bullied for having cankles, it was clear that Caridi was meant to be the villain of the season.

    • Lindsay Lohan finally shared her thoughts on her #DoTheLiLo dance that went viral in September 2018.
    • "It's so embarrassing to me now, you have to understand that," Lohan said during an appearance on NBC's "Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Monday. "I'm never dancing again."
    • The moment took place in Mykonos, Greece during a Pride celebration at her beach club. 


    Lindsay Lohan is reacting to her #DoTheLilo dance that went viral, and says she's not too proud of it. 

    During an appearance on NBC's "Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on Monday, the actress got candid about her moves, which turned into a dance challenge after she was seen partying in Mykonos, Greece.

    "It's so embarrassing to me now, you have to understand that," Lohan told Fallon. "I'm never dancing again."

    Lohan explained that she was attending a Pride party at her beach club and was pulled on stage to dance. The 32-year-old added that she didn't realize she would become a viral sensation until people informed her later. 

    Fallon went on to show viewers the video of the "Parent Trap" star flipping her hair, stepping from side to side, and spinning.

    In September 2018, Lohan reposted the video, which was taken in Greece, where she owns a nightclub in Athens and a beach house in Rhodes. She challenged her followers to put their own spin on the dance. In addition to fans joining in, celebrities like Busy Philipps also shared their versions of the #DoTheLiLo.

    During a recent appearance on ABC's "GMA," Lohan joked that her spontaneous moment now seems "almost like a mistake."

    Fans also caught a glimpse of the infamous moves in a trailer for Lohan's new MTV reality show, called "Lindsay Lohan's Beach Club." The series premieres on Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET and will focus on Lohan managing a team of servers, hosts, and bartenders at her establishment. 

    Watch Lohan's "Tonight Show" interview in the video below (she talks about the viral dance at 3:38).

    Joe bookstore You

    • "You" originally premiered on Lifetime in 2018, but in 2019, Netflix picked it up and began streaming it.  
    • The series stars Penn Badgley as Joe, a stalker who works in a bookstore.
    • Joe quickly becomes obsessed with Guinevere Beck, a writing student in New York City, and he begins stalking her.
    • The first season of the show was filled with murders, twists, and turns that kept viewers on the edge of their seats. 

    "You," which has been dubbed a "Gossip Girl" meets "Pretty Little Liars" series is now streaming season one on Netflix and it already has millions of viewers hooked.

    Adapted from a book series by Caroline Kepnes, "You" originally premiered on Lifetime last September. The network decided not to move forward with it, but fortunately, Netflix was quick to pick up the series and it has been placed in the hands of the streaming service as of January 2019.

    "You" stars Joe (Penn Badgley), a book-loving stalker who's taken an intense interest in Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail), a writing student in New York City. So far, the show has been filled with twist and turns and it has kept viewers on the edge of their seats.

    Here are some of the most shocking moments from season one of "You."

    Warning: Major spoilers for "You" ahead.

    When Beck almost found Joe hiding in her shower.

    This is one of the more mild shocks, but it was one of the first suspenseful moments of the season. In the first episode, Joe broke into Beck's apartment without getting caught.

    And then, of course, Beck unexpectedly came home and Joe hid in the shower. While Joe was in the shower, Beck reached her hand inside to turn the water on. Before she could shower, she got distracted by a phone call and she ended up turning the water back off. 

    When Joe attacked Beck's boyfriend, Benji.

    While gathering information on Beck in the first episode, Joe quickly realized that he hated her current boyfriend, Benji, who treated her poorly. And so, outraged by him, Joe lured Benji into the basement of his bookstore by pretending he was a reporter for New York Magazine who wanted to do a feature on Benji's soda startup. Joe promptly hit Benji over the head with a mallet, knocking him out.

    When Joe finally killed Benji after having him locked up for days.

    After knocking him out, Joe locked Benji in what some viewers have dubbed the "book dungeon," a glass cage located in the basement of the bookstore that's intended purpose was to protect and temperature-control old books that needed to be kept in pristine condition.

    After a few days, Joe decided he must kill Benji. Remembering Benji's severe nut allergy, Joe snuck peanut oil into Benji's latte, killing him.

    "Solo: A Star Wars Story" entered the "Star Wars" universe as a stand-alone film about young Han Solo and how he became the beloved icon he is today. The movie is not the greatest, and "Star Wars" fans have plenty of complaints. But if you lower your expectations, "Solo" can be a fun movie to watch.

    Jon and Ygritte Kissing Game of Thrones Kit Harington Jon Snow

    "Game of Thrones" c0-stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie turned their on-screen tragic romance into a real-life fairy tale. The couple was married in the summer of 2018, and now Harington is looking to the future.

    In a new profile with GQ Australia, Harington mused on the idea that "Game of Thrones" would serve as a poignant memory book for his possible children.

    "It dawned on me, recently," Harington told GQ's Tom Lamont. "And I have no idea if we will, but say me and Rose do have children. They'll know. They'll be able to see the genesis of their parents getting together. Which is quite a wonderful thought, really."

    The couple met while filming the second season of "Game of Thrones" in 2011, when their characters Jon Snow and Ygritte met during Jon's ranging mission beyond the wall. The ensuing romance between them was fraught with trust issues, betrayal, and literal arrows in their backs. Ygritte was killed during the battle of Castle Black, ending their tragic love story on screen.

    During their time on the show together, Harington and Leslie reportedly began dating in real life starting around 2012. The couple kept their personal lives close to the chest for several years, until they made their red carpet debut as a couple in April 2016.

    That same year, when asked by Vogue Italia what his favorite memory of filming "Game of Thrones" was, Harington said it was the time he spent in Iceland filming the third season (which is when Jon Snow and Ygritte fall in love).

    "Because the country is beautiful, because the Northern Lights are magical, and because it was there that I fell in love," he told Vogue Italia. "If you're already attracted to someone, and then they play your love interest in the show, it becomes very easy to fall in love."

    The couple announced their engagement in 2017, and were married at a small ceremony in Scotland the following summer. 

    Though Leslie's time on "Game of Thrones" ended with the fourth season, Harington only recently wrapped filming on the epic final season set to premiere in April of this year. He told GQ Australia that the final push of shooting was grueling and exhausting, but he's grateful for the entire experience.

    "I thank the show for everything," Harington said. "But more than anything else, I thank it for introducing me to her."

    The final season of "Game of Thrones"premieres this April. You can read GQ Australia's full interview with Kit Harington here.

    you joe car

    • "You" first aired on Lifetime, and it recently got picked up by Netflix.
    • The show follows Joe, a bookstore manager, as he pursues a graduate-school student, Guinevere Beck, who he meets at the store.
    • Joe's behaviors become obsessive and dangerous, and many viewers feel conflicted about rooting for him.
    • The series has already been renewed for a second season.

    Ever since the TV series "You" began streaming on Netflix, people haven't been able to stop talking about it. The thriller stars familiar faces including Penn Badgley, John Stamos, and Shay Mitchell.

    The show follows Joe Goldberg (Badgley), a bookstore manager, as he obsessively pursues a graduate-school student, Guinevere Beck (Elizabeth Lail). His obsession blossoms after encountering her just once. But theirs isn't a typical love story, and things begin to get dangerous. The series quickly gets dark as murders and other mysteries arise.

    But if you haven't seen the show yet, you might not get the memes — or understand why people are so obsessed with the series. If that's the case, read on for everything you need to know about "You."

    'You' is based on a book of the same name

    You beck and joe moving

    The book, written by Caroline Kepnes, was published in 2015, which means it wasn't out in the world for long before it was turned into a TV series. If you've already read it — or have watched the show and are dying for more — there's a sequel to "You" called "Hidden Bodies," which picks up with Joe where the first book left off.

    It originally aired on Lifetime

    beck youMany fans have discovered the show thanks to Netflix, but it wasn't initially one of the streaming service's original series. "You" premiered on Lifetime and made its Netflix debut in December 2018. All of the series' episodes first aired on the Lifetime network in fall 2018.

    It's getting good reviews

    You Netflix beck and peach

    Currently, "You" has a critic score of 89% and an audience score of 86% on Rotten Tomatoes. It also has an 8.1 out of 10 on IMDb.

    In September 2018, Entertainment Weekly TV critic Kristen Baldwin dubbed the show a "snappy new thriller" and gave it a B+ grade. She said it was "a lot like social media itself: perhaps not the most edifying way to spend your time, but very, very hard to quit."

    The show is about some seriously dark issues

    Joe YouUltimately, the show gives readers a glance into the dark side of obsession. Throughout the first season, "You" gives viewers insight into the mind of Joe, who is stalking the woman he loves. His thoughts and actions can be unsettling throughout the entire series, but he's also quick-witted and sardonic, giving him some shockingly likable qualities. Because of this, the viewer sees just how easy it is for Joe to seem trustworthy.

    Beyond that, one of the most unsettling parts of "You" is the way it shows how easily one's privacy can be invaded. The series shows how simple it could be for someone to use modern resources to work their way into your life.

    "You" takes its viewers into uncomfortable places in which anyone could find themselves while dating online, leaving their windows open, or even just sharing too much on social media. It shows how dangerous common activities can be under certain circumstances.

    'You' is filled with gray areas, and many viewers feel conflicted about who they're rooting for

    Joe bookstore YouOne of the key components of the series is that viewers might find themselves rooting for Joe, even as he makes ethically questionable choices. As creepy and as criminal as Joe gets, many viewers feel majorly conflicted about how they're still rooting for him to succeed.

    Overall, the gray area about who you are rooting for versus who you want to be rooting for is part of what's been creating such a buzz around the show.

    It's already been renewed for a 2nd season

    Considering the popularity of the show, it's no surprise that it's already been renewed for more episodes. Lifetime passed on a second season, according to The Hollywood Reporter, but Netflix picked up the series. They have yet to announce a premiere date for the new episodes.
