    Andrea Tantaros won’t be on Fox News Channel for the time being. TVNewser got a tip earlier today regarding Tantaros. When we reached out to FNC, they sent us this statement: “Issues have arisen regarding Andrea’s contract, and Fox News Channel has determined it best that she take some time off. She is still under contract with the network.” Tantaros was last on Outnumbered on Monday. She got a shout-out Monday evening on The Five for her new book, Tied Up in Knots: How Getting What We Wanted Made Women Miserable. Tantaros was scheduled to call in to Bill Cunningham‘s...

    Well this doesn’t look good — a day after ABC announced Michael Strahan’s departure from “Live! With Kelly and Michael” to join “Good Morning America” full time, co-host Kelly Ripa was nowhere to be found. Instead, Strahan showed up with substitute host Ana Gasteyer, formerly of the network’s “Suburgatory” and a guest star on “The Goldbergs.” “Kelly’s off today,” Strahan said briskly, introducing Gasteyer to the screaming fans in the audience.

    We have surrendered our most primary weapon - our minds Back in ‘86 I saw Oliver Stone’s graphically intense ‘Platoon’. It was opening in a brand new theater with a screaming sound system that made you feel as though you were in the center of the battle. Sitting right across the aisle were two well-dressed, young, absolutely moronic parents who had their son sitting between them. He could not have been more than five. Stone’s ultra-intense Vietnam War masterpiece had the audience thoroughly keyed up. Roaring artillery and wholesale slaughter were coming from every direction without warning. The poor little...

    Forgive my vanity in suggesting the best way for Donald Trump to counter the negatives that the Leftist media & globalist business interests appear bent on exploiting, to defeat his candidacy in November. But there is a relatively simple way for him to accomplish several goals with one relatively simple stroke; several goals simply by the effective use of program length television & radio. Consider the false narrative being promoted by various business groups, insistent on an imagined need for their version of both "free trade" & "liberal immigration" policy; a false narrative being given great currency in the media....

    Sen. Bernie Sanders remains a darling of the far left on the political spectrum. But, according to Politico, he has one politically incorrect position that has proven to be a vulnerability. Coming from a rural state, Vermont, he is considered to be soft on guns, from the point of view of his fellow Democrats. He opposes a bill that would make firearms manufacturers responsible for the use of their products in the commission of a crime. Sanders fellow senator, Kristin Gillibrand of New York, broke down and cried about the issue and begged Sanders to change his position for the...

    Just thinking about the I Love Lucy episode where Lucy worked on an assembly line in a candy factory brings a smile to my face. Remembering the family spirit and wholesomeness of other shows like Father Knows Best, Leave It to Beaver, and The Donna Reed Show still warms my heart. These classic television programs made us laugh and cry without the sex and violence that is so commonly associated with television today. No wonder the interest in TV nostalgia is growing by leaps and bounds. Many of us enjoy revisiting the quality programs from the 50's, 60's, and 70's....

The onetime vice presidential candidate has been tapped to preside over a new reality court show that would premiere next year. She signed a deal in February with Montana-based production company Warm Springs, a source close to the process tells PEOPLE. "It's a production deal," the source explains. "What happens next is she'll meet with stations, make a pilot and sell it." Warm Springs first approached Palin with the idea in 2015 and has since put...

    I'm sick of talking about politics today. I was wondering if anyone has been watching House of Cards and noticed that it looks like the show is jumping the shark. The original Brit version was only 12 one hour episodes and was nice and succinct. The new one is 4 seasons of 13 episodes now. I was hoping they would end it this season but apparently the show has fallen into the "milk it for all it's worth" mode. From the blurb on the last episode it's obvious that they are going to do yet another season. Well, this year...

    We all accept commercials as a necessary evil because they pay for the TV shows we watch. But, how much is commercial time is reasonable to accept? This question was answered for me while watching a 2004 episode of Star Trek Enterprise. The commercials came so often and lasted so long that is was almost impossible to maintain a sense of continuity with the show. This situation got me wondering about how much the percentage of time given to a show is lost to commercials has increased over the years.

There's no technological reason that Comcast, or Time Warner Cable, or Charter or any other cable TV provider needs to provide physical hardware at all.

    Ted Cruz has a powerful tool as he tries to close the deal with Iowa voters: He has aired the most effective TV ads in the Republican presidential race, according to independent research by a private company. The ratings come from Ace Metrix, a television analytics company that uses large online panels to rate the effectiveness of TV commercials. The company's political unit found that Cruz's campaign produced five of the 11 top-scoring ads among Republican voters this election, including the single most effective ad of the GOP primary so far...

The attack in Istanbul took the lives of 10 tourists, mostly Germans, in Sultanahmet square, near the Blue mosque and Hagia Sophia.

    When ABC first announced The Real O'Neals, about a gay teen coming out in a Catholic family, backlash from religious groups was swift and somewhat expected. Given that the story is based on the life of Dan Savage - the gay author and sex columnist who's been somewhat gleefully confrontational with conservatives - and the family is in the midst of a divorce too, groups like the American Family Association could, in theory at least, rightfully believe the show was trying to shred the traditional values they hold dear. That couldn't be further from the truth.

    With Thanksgiving having come and gone, we are now solidly into the Christmas season. Two stories that reveal Hollywood's attitude about Christmas in painful detail recently caught my attention. The first was an article in the L.A. Times about the 50th anniversary of "A Charlie Brown Christmas." It is now a classic; one of the most beloved of all broadcast television Christmas specials. Yet those in charge of its production at the time thought it was going to be a dismal failure. Why? Because cartoonist and author Charles M. Schulz refused to include a laugh track, and -- most significantly...

    The TV is on in the background, and you’re replying to a quick email on your phone nearby. You don’t know it, but the devices are communicating. During a commercial, the TV emits an inaudible tone and your phone, which was listening for it, picks it up. Somewhere far away, a server makes a note: Both devices probably belong to you. This information about which devices belong to whom is immensely valuable to advertisers hoping to target ads specifically to you. In a simpler time, targeted marketing was easy. Most people had a computer at work and maybe another at...

    Two stars of Discovery Channel’s “Alaskan Bush People” pleaded guilty on Wednesday to submitting falsified residency documents in order to collect money from Alaska’s Permanent Fund dividend.

During that time, he collected thousands of dollars from the state. "By submitting falsified PFD applications for myself and my children, I stole $7,956 from the people of Alaska," Brown wrote in a signed statement for a proposed plea deal, according to the Alaska...
