TV Ratings:
ABC’s “The Conners” just dropped by double-digit percentages in TV ratings from its last episode, which aired two weeks ago due to the midterm elections.

The Five Best Cary Grant Movies of His Career

You could say that Archibald Alec Leach, better known as Cary Grant, didn’t have the best upbringing in the world since his father was an alcoholic and his mother suffered from clinical depression.

This inspired him to become an actor as he watched such greats as Charlie Chaplin, Fatty Arbuckle, Ford Sterling, and many others. Unfortunately his father placed his mother in an

Up for vote for the shareholders were standard issues like executive compensation and the approval of a dual stock structure, with a bit of palace intrigue and strategy peppered in. Here’s what
