From bold entrepreneurs to little cogs in the wheel.

And so it goes when you sell your small business to a major conglomerate. The five partners – Roger, Don, Joan, Pete and Ted – may have made millions on the deal and may still have jobs after the dust settles (because they all signed four year contracts), but they have lost their independence; something that’s more important than anything to mavericks like these.

It seems that parent company McCann-Erikson has reneged on the deal they made with Roger, which was to allow SC&P to retain it’s name, offices, and clients. The giant agency is...

The annual White House Correspondent's Dinner is one of the year's most highly anticipated events. This year, in addition to the President's jokes, social media buzzed after First Lady Michelle Obama unveiled her new curly hairstyle.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: 'AC/DC'

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Recap: 'AC/DC' Destroys Jake's Body For The
It's been way too long since our last "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." "Sabotage" was six weeks ago! At least things are back to normal now.

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine's" returning to some very familiar territory with "AC/DC." Jake, in pushing himself to be the greatest cop ever (a constant state of John McClane, really), pulls a daring rooftop car chase. Except for the car with an open sunroof, tripping up Jake and also crushing several of his bones.

But he'll still push on, despite the whole "crushed bones" thing.

Here's the part that feels so familiar. "AC/DC" sees Jake drive himself obsessively toward...

Bruce Jenner Comes Out... As A Transgender Republican?
Bruce Jenner officially came out as transgender during an interview with Diane Sawyer last Friday. That, you probably knew (and probably saw coming, considering it's all anyone could talk about for weeks).

Here's something you might not have picked up on. During the interview, Jenner also came out as something else: a Republican.

At one point in the interview, Sawyer asked Jenner what he thought of Barack Obama being the first president to use the word "transgender" (which he did in this year's State of the Union address).

"I will certainly give him credit for that," Jenner replied. "But...

'The Good Wife' Recap And Review: 'The Deconstruction' - How Doe
After The Good Wife blew up its State's Attorney storyline two weeks ago, we've been asking ourselves what this show is going to do, not just for the end of season six but for a potential season seven. In "The Deconstruction," we find out that it's a little bit of deja vu: toying with the same splitting-firms storyline from season five, except in this case everyone behaves like children.

Meanwhile, Kalinda's exit story finally becomes clear, as she takes big steps toward resolving the Lemond Bishop situation. But all you really need to know is that no one is happy with anyone and that some...

'Game Of Thrones': Exciting Prospects Are On The Horizon

April 27th, 2015 9:00am EDT
'Game Of Thrones' Recap & Review: 5 Memorable Moments From 'The
The best thing this season of Game of Thrones has done is converge some of the many characters into single storylines. With a great many characters spread all across the many lands, there’s a danger of losing focus and having too much going on. That’s always been one of the major downfalls of the show, having too much going on and not enough time to fully focus on the characters that really matter.

But this season has put characters that were adrift on a path that will see them come together. The possibilities of the future storylines with characters that normally wouldn’t interact are one...
