Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia and Macy's announced Thursday that they had settled a lawsuit that accused Stewart's company of violating an exclusivity agreement by selling products at rival chain J.C. Penney. Neither MSLO nor Macy's disclosed terms of the arrangement. Macy's said the deal doesn't affect its ongoing suit against J.C. Penney. The tussle stemmed from Stewart's 2011 deal to sell home goods in J.C. Penney stores and for the retailer to snap up a nearly 17% share of MSLO.

It's a rare thing to see a comedian get turned into a blubbering mess of tears on national TV, but that's exactly what happened Thursday night as "The Daily Show" bid farewell to one of their own. Longtime correspondent (and recent fill-in host) John Oliver left the show this week to start his own comedy show on HBO. And as a way of sending him off in style, Stewart faked Oliver into thinking he was doing a comedy bit on nuts left around Buckingham Palace for the queen to snack on and then pulled a switcheroo and presented him with a "greatest hits" tribute.

Stewart gave Prince the whole, "Can you stick around?"

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Perhaps the trade rumors will resurface in spring training or at the July 31 nonwaiver trade deadline. But for now, the Dodgers' plan is to hold on to Matt Kemp. That's what Kemp's agent said he was told by General Manager Ned Colletti at baseball's winter meetings on Wednesday. "He said that they're not going to move him," said Dave Stewart, the former All-Star pitcher who represents Kemp. Before the winter meetings, Stewart told The Times he would be surprised if his client wasn't traded this winter because of the unusual amount of media speculation about Kemp's future.

At its inception 30 years ago, the Sundance Film Festival was dedicated to low-budget films made outside the studio system, a celebration of fresh cinematic voices telling daring, imaginative stories. Back then Hollywood stars barely factored into the equation. It's this legacy that makes the lineup for this January's festival all the more startling: A-list actors will be as deep in Park City, Utah, as the mountain resort's snow. The shift is a consequence of the tilt of studio slates - where adult dramas have been routed by comic-book adaptations, sequels and remakes - and the economics of independent film financing, where having recognizable performers is often the only way to attract funding.
