    CNN Apologizes After Joking About Donald Trump’s Plane Crashing Kaitlan Collins Entertainment Editor 1:52 PM 12/02/2016 CNN has apologized after a reporter and producer were caught joking on camera about Donald Trump’s plane crashing. In footage obtained and posted on YouTube by Scott Jones of FTV Live, an unidentified producer can be heard telling reporter Suzanne Malveaux that the president-elect’s plane crashed. “That means his plane’s crashed,” the producer says as Malveaux grins. “No, I’m kidding.”

    The Nielsen estimates revealed that ESPN lost 555,000 subscribers during the last month. In other words, ESPN essentially lost the city of Albuquerque, New Mexico. This, coming on the heels of last month, the worst month in ESPN history, where the network lost 621,000 subscribers. In the last two months, ESPN has lost 1,176,000 subscribers, a subscriber loss nearly the size of the city of Dallas, Texas. ...explanation for the network’s cratering subscriber base. ESPN Ombudsman Jim Brady, admitted that the network lurched way too far to the left in recent years, alienating many viewers.

    The NFL’s narrative that the elections ruined their ratings took a substantial blow on Monday when the overnight numbers for NBC’s Sunday Night Football became available. Hint: they did not impress. NBC’s broadcast of the Chiefs vs. Broncos on SNF came in a staggering 27 points behind last year’s Week 12 SNF matchup featuring the Patriots and the Broncos. Sure, Patriots-Broncos makes for a more compelling watch than Chiefs-Broncos, but does not justify a thirty-point ratings difference. Not to mention the fact that the presidential election ended three weeks ago, which makes pinning the NFL’s woes on the “quadrennial silly...

    It was thirteen years ago this holiday. George W. Bush made a surprise trip to Iraq to encourage American troops who were fighting the War against Islamic Terrorism in Iraq. As the president was photographed serving Thanksgiving turkey to soldiers in the battlefield, subversive journalists in the U.S. reported the visit as a political stunt. One day later H i l l a r y C l i n t o n showed up in Iraq and was praised by the same media as heroic. That was it for me. I turned the TV off and began my lifetime boycott...

    SPN’s well-publicized hemorrhaging of subscribers peaked in recent months, greatly hindering the Bristol-based giant’s all-important ability to purchase sports rights. Now, subscriber loss reached such a level that ESPN has become a financial drain on its parent-company Disney. Other Disney TV properties have also taken hits, but ESPN’s subscription face-plant, highlighted by the earth-shattering loss of 621,000 subscribers in October, has Disney most concerned, considering that ESPN accounts for a huge portion Disney’s operating income. By some estimates, ESPN accounts for as much as 30% of Disney’s operating income, and the sports powerhouse has shed 10 million subscribers in the...

Do not be fooled, folks. This was not an awards show. It was a political hit job on the president-elect. ABC censors bleeped out Chrissy Teigen's reference to "this f**ked up, f**king election." Green Day embarrassed themselves with new lyrics to "Bang Bang." "No Trump, no KKK, no fascist USA," lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong screamed to a crowd of adoring anti-Trump minions.

ABC’s broadcast of the AMAs drew a 2.4 rating in adults 18-49, down 31 percent from last year’s 3.5. It’s the lowest 18-49 rating on record for the awards, whose previous low point was a 3.4 in 2012.

That’s what happened in May (where Disney missed targets for the first time since March 2011), and that’s what happened Thursday when Disney posted fourth-quarter earnings of $1.10 per share (down eight per cent from the previous year) on revenue of $13.14 billion (down 3 per cent from the previous year), below the consensus estimates of $1.16 a share on $13.52 billion in revenue.

I suppose that makes a kind of sense. There are certainly downsides to a Trump victory --...

The comments were made by ‘liberal’ CNN political commentator Angela Rye, who went absolutely crazy and almost yelled obscenities when the ‘conservative’ member of the panel brought up documented accounts of Hillary Clinton’s attacks on the women who have accused Bill Clinton of sexual abuse.

    ABC debuted the sitcom "Modern Family" in 2009 in part to push a broader acceptance of same-sex couples. But the cultural deconstructionists cannot rest until the mission is complete, so then they pushed it even further, agitating for a broader acceptance of same-sex marriage as just as sacred as traditional marriage. Now, the deconstructionists are doing it again, this time pushing transgender acceptance...with a transgender child actor. This new initiative came just a few weeks after transgender actors became the latest social justice cause pushed at the Emmy Awards. When he accepted a highly politicized Emmy award for the second...

The incident was discussed on September 12th in an article by the Barrett Sports Media network:When the NFL kicks off regular season play, television networks expect their ratings to soar higher than the previous season. Given the popularity of the National Football League, it’s understandable to have those expectations. But for the start of the 2016 campaign, the ratings were less than what FOX, CBS and NBC had hoped for. The NFL...

    So Stephen Colbert turns out to be just as much of an a-hole as "Stephen Colbert." Viewers have noticed. After an initial burst of interest spurred by CBS's big-bucks saturation advertising campaign for "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," the show's ratings have tanked and it is now running third in late night behind NBC's Jimmy Fallon and ABC's Jimmy Kimmel, who rarely has managed second place before. The reason? A survey by the Hollywood Reporter found that conservative viewers are turning off Colbert in droves. Nearly twice as many Republicans are watching Kimmel as Colbert, who has turned "Late...

    In an interview with TVLine, Simpsons showrunner Al Jean reveals that the show's 27th season will be a big one for Waylon Smithers, lovelorn assistant to megalomaniacal businessman Mr. Burns: After decades of pining, Smithers will finally come out to his boss. "In Springfield now, most people know he’s gay, but obviously Burns doesn’t," Jean notes. "We deal with that in two episodes."

It is being written and produced by Hayden Black, who is known for the award-winning and critically lauded show Goodnight Burbank. The series has a slew of popular Hollywood names attached...

    Bravo has cast transgender model Amiyah Scott in “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” for its upcoming eighth season, Variety has learned. The casting marks the first-ever transgender woman to be featured in the “Real Housewives” franchise, though the capacity in which Scott will appear is undetermined, as discussions have just begun. Scott on “RHOA” will join many transgender figures on reality television, following “Big Brother” casting its first-ever trans contestant this summer; ABC Family’s “Becoming Us” from exec producer Ryan Seacrest, which documents a teenage boy’s life after his father transitions; TLC’s summer series “I Am Jazz,” which follows 14-year-old...
  • Caitlyn Jenner’s television show loses half its audience

    Is the public fascination with Caitlyn Jenner wearing off? Ratings for E!’s groundbreaking reality series I Am Cait plummeted for the show’s second episode. Sunday’s hour had only 1.3 million viewers, a drop of more than 50% from the show’s premiere. I Am Cait premiered somewhat modestly too, especially considering the usual Kardashian clan drawing power on E! and the amount of media buzz surrounding Jenner in recent months. The series debut had 2.7 million viewers, then grew to 3.9 million with DVR playback. While time-shifted viewing is important, a big change in same-night viewership — like what happened on...

    After an extensive investigation, NBC News finally decided the fate of habitual liar Brian Williams, who has been on an extended suspension since February. In the end, they made a brilliant decision by removing him from the anchor chair at the “NBC Nightly News” and demoting him to MSNBC, their embarrassment of a cable news network. Williams will join other chronic liars, such as the Reverend Al Sharpton, on the cable news network that has turned into a ratings disaster. MSNBC has a pathetic number of viewers for a national news network, usually about 500,000 per night. This is only...
