  • CBS Dusts Off And Colorizes ‘I Love Lucy’ Episodes For May Sweep Tryout

    Deadline.com ^ | April 16, 2015 | Lisa de Moraes
    CBS, which has aired colorized episodes of I Love Lucy during the Christmas holiday period, is expanding the scheduling strategy to May. That’s when broadcast networks celebrate the end-of-TV-season holes in their schedules because their regular series have completed their runs. The network said today it will air two newly colorized episodes of its popular 1950s series from 8-9 PM Sunday, May 17. William Holden guest stars in “L.A. At Last!” (1955), and George Reeves — who was starring on TV’s Adventures Of Superman at the time — reprises his role as the Man of Steel in “Lucy and Superman”...

    JOHANNESBURG — Years before he was chosen to succeed Jon Stewart on “The Daily Show,” before he made his debut on that Comedy Central news satire or appeared on any American television program, a rising stand-up named Trevor Noah explained why his racial background was both empowering and confining. Speaking from his native South Africa in 2008, Mr. Noah, the son of a black Xhosa mother and a white Swiss father, said that his countrymen had variously accepted and rejected him as being black, and embraced and denied him as being mixed race. Never fitting in anywhere, Mr. Noah said...
  • Ben Affleck demanded PBS program hide his slave-owning ancestor

    Ben Affleck insisted on censoring the fact that one of his ancestors owned slaves from PBS show “Finding Your Roots,” the Sony email hack has revealed. In a hacked Sony email from July 22, 2014, now available on WikiLeaks, the show’s host, Henry Louis Gates Jr., writes to Sony USA chief Michael Lynton asking for advice: “One of our guests has asked us to edit out something about one of his ancestors–the fact that he owned slaves. Now, four or five of our guests this season descend from slave owners, including Ken Burns. We’ve never had anyone ever try to...

  • Will FOX Pull the Plug on American Idol?

    04/18/2015 5:35:10 PM PDT · by SeekAndFind · 13 replies
    American Idol ratings hit a series low last week, dropping to a 1.4 in the desirable 18-49 demographic. Even when head to head competition with The Voice was no longer a threat (the rival show aired a special results show at 8 pm) the numbers stayed flat this week. Once the highly rated FOX show, Empire left the Wednesday night lineup, the show began to falter. The Wrap notes, however, that Idol is still ahead of the final season of the cancelled X Factor. Heading into this week the two regular editions of “Idol” were averaging a combined 2.9 rating...

    The first efforts of TV star LeVar Burton’s attempt to re-envision “Reading Rainbow” for the digital age go live at the end of this month. The cellphone. The tablet computer. E-Readers. Decades ago, technologies that today feel second-nature were nothing but nebulous concepts in the imaginations of science fiction authors and screenplay writers. When those ideas were broadcast into the homes of America’s children via television, however, generations worked to bring them into reality. “That which we focus our imaginations on is what we tend to manifest in this realm,” said television star LeVar Burton at a Friday evening speech...

    It has been years since audiences have been given a horror movie that wasn't a carbon copy of another film—big-budget film producers aren't exactly flowing with ideas. Thankfully, the Horror Showcase at the Newport Beach Film Festival, running April 23-30, aims to counter that fatigue with a new crop of filmmakers outside of the Hollywood milieu, presenting seven short films and one feature film that not only break the mold of clichés, but also eat their brains . . . or something. Because if there's one thing we can be mindful of, it's that some of the best, most memorable...

    Producers of the new thriller "Beyond The Reach" needed a villain. Specifically, they needed a bad guy to costar with Michael Douglas, who plays the murderous multimillionaire out to kill an innocent hunting guide played by Jeremy Irvine. Requirements for the role included beauty, speed, agility and toughness, and the ability to withstand long shooting days in New Mexico desert near Four Corners. The casting call led them to a most unusual candidate. Douglas' evil partner in crime is played by a Mercedes 6x6.

    1. Orson Welles was born on May 6, 1915. 2. As a filmmaker, his three greatest pictures, in order, are Touch of Evil (1958), Citizen Kane (1941) and The Magnificent Ambersons (1942). 3. Ah, yes, but Citizen Kane tops many lists as the greatest film of all time (with Welles filling the top slot on many directing lists). The fictional story of a megalomaniac newspaper magnate (loosely based on William Randolph Hearst) and innocence lost is indeed a masterpiece . . . albeit a dated one. Newspaper magnates? Not in this century, bub. 4. John Houseman wrote in his 1972...

    The stat comes from a new paper from the National Bureau of Economic Research. It may be hard to believe that professional athletes, who earn so much money at such a young age, could possibly end up bankrupt. But nearly 16% of those in the National Football League do—just not right away. According to a new working paper from the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER), 15.7% of NFL players have filed for bankruptcy 12 years after they retired. The paper, entitled “Bankruptcy Rates Among NFL Players with Short-Lived Income Spikes,” examines the traditional model of consumption smoothing (save money...

Four protesters were temporarily detained after disrupting an 8 p.m. showing of the film April 10 on the Eastern Michigan University campus, according to university officials.

The latest was reported Friday by the New York Post: Dozens of residents from Williams’ home town are demanding a tribute sign to their former favorite son be torn down. Thus far, Mayor Sue Skidmore is balking. The town’s welcome sign, which also honors a half-dozen other hometown notables (including Mark Twain), would be too expensive to replace, she says. …

There’s an inherent cowardice within the mainstream media that stops writers from venturing anywhere into territory that contradicts leftist narratives. While there might be some bravery, any divergence into territory that might run contradictory to ideals the leftist cause célèbre puts forth ends with a flurry of...

    OK. In a season during which NBC has put-on its big boy pants -- or the one dirty word a minute standard -- in order to compete with cable, we have several new shows. Among them is the new "American Odyssey," which premiered last night. The bad news is that the show offers nothing new. Big business is pure evil, secretly funding Islamic terrorism and sending its own private army to kill American soldiers who may embarrass BIG EVIL BUSINESS, which operates like the Klingon Empire except that the Klingons are more honorable and gentle. In "Odyssey," corporations also kill...
