The Oak Ridge Boys have been around in one form or another since the 1940's, so it might surprise you to know that they're just now releasing their first live record, Boys' Night Out. As the album becomes available today, BFTV spoke with bassist Richard Sterban - who's been with the group since 1972 - about what made 2014 the right time to put out a live disc and the Oaks' enduring popularity.

Billy Bob Thornton Gives Insight To FX's Dark Comedy 'Fargo'
It seems as though mini-series are quite a trend today. If you are an avid TV viewer, you are most likely tuning into one every week. That case, you won’t mind to add another show to your list.

Premiering this week is the highly anticipated crime drama, with a dark comedic flare, titled “Fargo.” Does the name ring a bell? You may recall seeing Frances McDormand winning an Oscar for her role in the 1996 movie adaption. “Fargo,” a Coen Brothers’ film, won Best Screenplay at the 1997 Academy Awards as well as was said to have been "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant" by the...

Kit Williamson
Kit Williamson is best known as Ed Gifford on the award-winning Mad Men. He also has a hit show of his own, Eastsiders. He is busy not only with acting but with writing, producing, directing and going to graduate school at UCLA. Yet, he still had time to speak with me.

How do you feel about Mad Men’s final season?

I am so honored to be a part this show. The world is so thoroughly, incredibly realized. It's funny, because while everyone on set is very serious about the work they are doing, it's not like there is this looming gravitas or anything. Nobody walks around like they're making...

Here's what Rut and Sam had to tell us about their plans for handling this race and their future projects.

Rutledge is being a little, shall we say, cautious about his chances. "I think the only way that we'll have a shot is if we steal the keys to Al Uns...
