Diversions and Getaways COP 24/7 Style

We made it! TGIF as this week has been a doozy and so much more. Too many items, so much e-mail, videos, links, re-boots, mash up and mayhem have all been the order of the day here at COP 24/7. So after all the "cray cray," that we almost could stand including Tom Cotton's rush to the "hey look at me grandstand," to the ever unfolding Facebook drama's of the LGBTQ set. You name it and there's been a taste of it either here or covered on our FB platform at  With all that's gone on, let's go for some diversions and getaways COP 24/7 style...

Fashion Police 911!

In a published statement, E network executives said, "We can confirm that Kathy Griffin is leaving E!'s 'Fashion Police.' We wish her all the best and are grateful for her time on the show, as well as the many laughs that she gave us all. 'Fashion Police' will return, as scheduled, on Monday, March 30 at 9 p.m. with our talented co-hosts Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski and executive producer Melissa Rivers. No further information is available at this time." Well this comes on the hot stiletto's of Kelly Osborne's departure and the ill timed as well as tragic death of legendary actress and comic Joan Rivers. 

In case you've missed this show, its the weekly throw down of all things fashion and as much shade as they can get away with.  As a "slave to fashion," I check into to show on occasions to check out the latest barbs and quipps about the well heeled who work the red carpets and runways. Ultimately Joan's acerbic wit and one liner's always too the show right to the line of good taste and sometimes over it, unfortunately the show has been trying to find its comedic legs afterwards. I had high hopes for Griffin but I'm still hopeful that another winning combination will be found and the show can get dressed for continued success.


You have to been under several tons of rock not to have heard the ballyhoo and catcalls about none other than the mega soap EMPIRE. The children are living for it and many adults are also loosing their minds as well.

Its the down and dirty Diana of Hip Hop featuring a dueling Black family that keeping it 100!  After binge watching eight episodes in one sitting to get caught up, all we need now is the impeding grand finale set for next week, March 18 on FOX.

The two-hour finale event — epically titled "Die But Once/Who I Am" — follows Jamal (Jussie Smollett) and estranged dad Lucious (Terrence Howard, pictured above) as they begin to form a music-centered relationship. But since this is Empire, the soapiest, juiciest drama to debut in 2015, that's not all — Lucious has a secret that could very well change everything.

And who knows what will come from the mind of producer Lee Daniels and creator Danny Strong. Plus we certainly can't wait for more "for a queen you keep a dirty house," one liners from Academy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson (pictured right)  as "Cookie." That's Miss Cookie to you bitch!  Even as the show has taken all types of barrages including being called "Coon TV," to other celebrity talk such as Puffy whom has talked about legal action around the fact that the show mirrors his life.
Wednesday's penultimate episode averaged 14.9 million same-day viewers, up from 14.3 million last week. That marks nine weeks of consistent ratings growth since its Jan. 7 premiere, an unprecedented record at least since 1991, when Nielsen began measuring individual viewers. (With delayed viewing counted, last week's episode will draw a cumulative total of more than 20 million.)
Empire's viewership among adults ages 18 to 49 was unchanged from last week. It's the top-rated network drama, and the most popular new series among that crowd, providing a much-needed boost to the struggling fourth-place network. Y'all get ready because the empire train has left the station and who knows where it will end up or get derailed. Stay tuned....

And now our Friday Video...
