Crazy Ex-Girlfriend recap:
'My Mom, Greg's Mom and Josh's Sweet Dance Moves!'

We’re not in West Covina anymore. No, this week’s episode kicks off far from California — on a ship from Europe to America in 1901, to be exact. Rebecca’s ancestors — a mother and daughter — are on rocky waters both literally and figuratively. Mom’s giving 1901 Rebecca a hard time about just about everything, from her hair to her too-plump fingers. And most importantly, the mother is wearing a stunning ring. The daughter clearly longs for it — and for her mom’s approval.

'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend' recap:
'Josh and I Are Good People!'

Consider the title of this week’s episode, and then let’s all recall its opening scene: Rebecca is walking through a park, and a homeless woman asks if she has any change. Rebecca’s reply?  “Oh, sorry, I only have twenties. I got them from working!” So yeah, maybe not a good person?

Why Tim Gunn 'hated' season 14 of Project Runway

Season 14 of Project Runway comes to a close on Thursday, and at least one person is thrilled to say goodbye. “I’m telling you — and I haven’t said this very much — I hated season 14,” Tim Gunn tells EW. “I hated it.
