NEW! SaSa and I are back with a new talk. I've been telling you to watch Gomorrah for years. It's one of the best TV series ever - suspenseful, smart, sophisticated.

Salvatore isn't just the lead in Gomorrah (he plays Gennaro, aka Genny, Savastano). He's also a highlight of this season of Fargo (another great show), playing Gaetano Fadda, who you won't...

We even tried out a new entertainment project together (mixed reviews on that; maybe I'll tell you about it someday). But more importantly, we became friends.

In honor of tonight's ABC special presentation of Diff'rent Strokes + The Facts of Life, I'm re-airing my talk with Todd Bridges from last year. Todd has been through the ringer.

Emmy-winning actor Peter Scolari, who won an Emmy for HBO's Girls, died on Friday morning. This is my very deep talk with Peter, which we had in October 2017. I hope you enjoy it.

Peter and I talk about everything from Bosom Buddies to Newhart and Madoff. He opens up about drugs and alcohol, depression and learning he has bipolar disorder....
