'Fashion Police' remembers Joan Rivers in finale

  'Fashion Police' remembers Joan Rivers in finale Fashion Police is going out in style — Joan Rivers' style. Just like the late comedian, the E! series' Farewell (Monday, 8 p.m. ET/PT) is audacious, amusing and sincere. From 1995 until her unexpected death in 2014 at age 81, Rivers entertained her fans affectionately called the "Joan Rangers" as host of the show that made punchlines out of celebrity fashion faux pas. For Rivers, pointing out stars' best looks and blunders was a family affair. Her daughter, Melissa Rivers, served as executive producer for the series and butt of several of Rivers' jokes. Melissa began co-hosting the show in 2015, filling her mom's spot. When E! announced the show's end in October, Melissa praised the network and one of the highlights of her mother's career. “Thank you to E! for having the vision to see the potential of Fashion Police which changed both the entertainment and fashion industries,” she said in a press release. “I am truly proud to be part of this legacy.” After the loss of Rivers and her flawless delivery of fearlessly offensive humor, the show was never quite the same. It attempted to create similar magic with former co-host Kathy Griffin. Kelly Osbourne and George Kotsiopoulos also dished their opinions as co-hosts. On Monday, Melissa serves on the final panel with Giuliana Rancic, Brad Goreski, NeNe Leakes and Margaret Cho.

Jimmy Kimmel is stepping away from his desk on Jimmy Kimmel Live! for another week and is once again calling on some famous friends to help out. Jurassic Worldleading man Chris Pratt will host Monday's show with guests Margot Robbie and Chris Stapleton.

Jimmy Kimmel accepts Roy Moore's invite with a searing takedown

  Jimmy Kimmel accepts Roy Moore's invite with a searing takedown On Thursday, Roy Moore, the controversial Senate candidate accused of sexual misconduct with minors, challenged Jimmy Kimmel to go “man to man” on his home turf in Alabama. That same day, Kimmel accepted. “What I’m gonna do is — and I think you’re actually gonna like this, Roy — I’m gonna come down to Gadsden, Alabama with a team of professional cheerleaders,” Kimmel said during an incendiary takedown on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “We’ll meet you at the mall. Don’t worry, I can get you in,” he added in reference to rumors that Moore was banned from a shopping mall for bothering underage girls. “And if, when the girls and I show up, if you can control yourself and behave, if you can somehow manage to keep little Roy in your little cowboy pants when they those nubile cheerleaders come bounding in, you and I, we’ll sit down at the food court, we’ll have a little Panda Express, and we’ll talk about Christian values.” Their public sparring stems from Tony Barbieri, a Jimmy Kimmel Live comedian who suited up as his comedic persona, Jake Byrd, to disrupt a church service where Moore was speaking.

ABC announced on Monday that Chris Pratt , Tracee Ellis Ross, Neil Patrick Harris, and Melissa McCarthy will play host on Jimmy Kimmel Live over the next four nights. Pratt will hold court tonight, with guests Margot Robbie and Chris Stapleton, while Ross will welcome Mary J
