Fox News reacts to Sean Hannity-Michael Cohen bombshell, calling it "the elephant in the room"
Shepard Smith, who was recently feuding with Hannity, was on Fox News when the revelation was made that Hannity also was a client of Trump's attorney Michael Cohen. "For us, the elephant in the room is that Sean Hannity is said to have been a third client of Michael Cohen,” Smith said in briefly addressing the bombshell news, adding: "A lot of people here know his number. We’ll get on that.” After a commercial break, Shepard said, "we spoke with his publicist here at Fox News who says that he says they have been friends a long time. He never denied he was his lawyer. That he did some legal work for him along the way. And that’s the extent of that." Hannity later released a statement saying "Michael Cohen has never represented me in any manner. I never retained him, received an invoice or paid legal fees." Fox News has yet to formally comment on Hannity's connection with Cohen.

NBC’s A.P. Bio has everything you want in a comedy -- except for the laughs
“If NBC's new comedy A.P. Bio were a high school senior, it would have a solid roster of extracurriculars, a winning personality made for entrance interviews, and it would write thoughtful and introspective college essays,” says Daniel Fienberg. “The only thing keeping it from getting into the university of its choice would be a report card listing straight Cs. To crack my deeply complicated analogy code: As a TV show, A.P. Bio has nearly everything you'd want in a comedy, including a solid premise, a great cast and a particular visual style. The only thing holding it back is the small quibble that it's not actually all that funny.”

James Franco accused by five women of “inappropriate and sexually exploitative behavior”
The Los Angeles Times spoke to five women about Franco’s alleged sexual misconduct, including those who raised the allegations on Twitter following the actor’s Golden Globe win for The Disaster Artist on Sunday night. Four of the five women were Franco’s students, with the other saying he served as her mentor. Some said they felt that Franco abused his power dynamic with them, believing that he could offer career advancement by acquiescing to his wishes. Sarah Tither-Kaplan, one of the women who tweeted about Franco, said that she and other actresses appeared fully nude in an orgy scene. But she was shocked when he removed protective plastic guards covering her and other actresses’ vaginas while simulating oral sex on them. “I feel there was an abuse of power, and there was a culture of exploiting non-celebrity women, and a culture of women being replaceable,” said Tither-Kaplan. Franco’s attorney, Michael Plonsker, disputed all of the women’s allegations and directed The Times to Franco’s comments on Tuesday's The Late Show. Plonsker added that “the allegations about the protective guards are not accurate.”
ALSO: Seth Meyers gave Franco another late-night grilling on Wednesday night: “Does this Time’s Up movement and this moment we’re having right now, does it make you look back at all and question any of your behavior in the past based on this new perspective we’re getting on how women have perceived things for so long?” asked Meyers. Franco responded: “I have my own side of this story, but I believe in, you know, these people that have been underrepresented getting their stories out enough that I will, you know, hold back things that I could say just because I believe in it that much. And if I have to take a knock because I’m not going to, you know, try and, you know, actively refute things, then I will, because I believe in it that much.”
