A magazine-format journalistic television series, created in 1981 by Alfred Masini and originally produced and distributed by Creator/{{Paramount}}, featuring Mary Hart and a score of other hosts and reporters discussing the recent news in Hollywood. A major enabler of the HollywoodHypeMachine, as well as a tabloid journal, it's a mixture of hype, interviews, and sensationalism about the latest rumors and dating habits of the rich and famous. Airs daily in half-hour segments, and has done so for years. Country-specific spin-offs have popped up in the UK, Canada, Brazil, and others. The show is now produced and distributed by Creator/{{CBS}}, which replaced Paramount successor CBS Paramount Television after the CBS-Creator/{{Viacom}} breakup in 2005.

* {{Fanfare}}: Composed by Michael Mark. It became an unlistenable cacophony of guitars and swooshes over the last few years (and between 2012-2014, a terrible rap mix by will.i.am from Music/TheBlackEyedPeas promoted by the show as the best television theme ever). Thankfully as of September 2014 a simpler version of the theme has returned.

* ViewersAreMorons: Even if justified as giving an AudioDescription to blind viewers, the zeal of their voiceovers describe magazine and video imagery of celebrities, down to [[ProductPlacement fashion labels worn by them]] comes off as kind of insultingly primary as if we don't know what Calvin Klein is.

* WolverinePublicity: The show seems to think that ''TheBigChill'', a 1983 film about BabyBoomers is the greatest film of all time and has days of footage about it. Every time a year ending in "3" or "8" or a new home media release comes around, expect to be reminded of how this movie only thought of by most as filler on {{Creator/HBO}} or Creator/USANetwork is the best two hours ever put to celluloid by this program.

* {{Paparazzi}}: A lot of footage of celebrities came from them for many years; has been tamped down as new management came in and decided to finally stop out-TMZ'ing TMZ before they lost many celebrities from even contributing to the program.

Celebrity-run social media accounts have also helped push this type of footage off ''ET''.
