  • Dirty Little Emmy Secret: Trump Supporters Much More Racially Diverse Than Lily-White Television

    According to the latest census figures, white people make up 61.3 percent of the American population. Rounding out those numbers, Hispanics (17.8 percent), blacks (13.3 percent), and Asians (5.7 percent), fill in most of the rest of our glorious melting pot. And yet… The oh-so progressive left-wing television industry, the very same television industry that spent almost every minute of Sunday’s disastrously low-watched Emmy Award Show smugly blasting away at Trump and his supporters as unrepentant racists, looks nothing like America. Not even close. In fact, the broad coalition of Trump’s “racist” supporters is much more racially diverse than the...
  • Emmys 2017: Here’s What You Didn’t See on TV (Global warming solved - outdoor AC!)

    The Emmys ceremony is a giant production, and TV viewers only get to see a glimpse of the whole shebang. Here are some moments that weren’t featured on TV that we got to witness firsthand at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. 1. Air conditioners… outside This is the first year that the Red Carpet got air conditioning. After last year’s heat wave, stars and press were treated to much cooler temperatures this year than last year. (Interestingly, the show opened with a sketch in which Allison Janney worried about several problems, including global warming.)

    This morning Ed wrote about the anticipated (and delivered) crash and burn of the ratings for last night’s Emmys. I suppose I contributed to that in a small way since I was watching football. In my Twitter feed, I only saw two of the conservatives I follow commenting on the show so that seemed to be a fairly common practice among our tribe. The initial scoring put them in position to be one of the worst rated Emmys outings of the modern era. This led a few timid voices to meekly suggest this morning that just perhaps the show needs...
  • Did 'The View' Cut Jedediah Bila for being tough on Hillary Clinton?

    ABC’s “The View” has denied a report that conservative co-host Jedediah Bila was removed from the show because she asked a tough question to Hillary Clinton last Wednesday. Citing a “source,” The New York Post reported that Bila’s exit had something to do with the way she treated Clinton during the recent interview. Bila asked the former Democratic presidential candidate how she felt about liberals who criticize her new book, “What Happened.” The source told the Post that there were, “a lot of staff who were upset about how that interview was handled.” The Post reported that “The View” executives...

    Research firm eMarketer cuts TV ad-spending forecast on accelerating pay-TV declines Winter is here for cable and satellite TV operators. American consumers are cancelling traditional pay-TV service at a much faster rate than previously expected, according to research firm eMarketer. In 2017, a total of 22.2 million U.S. adults will have cut the cord on cable, satellite or telco TV service to date — up 33% from 16.7 million in 2016 — the researcher now predicts. That’s significantly higher than eMarketer’s prior estimate of 15.4 million cord-cutters as of the end of this year. Meanwhile, the number of “cord-nevers” (consumers...

    'We Can Do Better' landed at the network with a sizable penalty attached. Free of the Star Wars Han Solo movie, Phil Lord and Chris Miller are turning their attention back to the small screen. The Last Man on Earth creators have sold single-camera comedy We Can Do Better to ABC. The comedy, which landed at the Disney-owned network with multiple outlets bidding and a significant penalty attached, revolves around a soccer mom who deals with her newly "woke" life in the South as a parent, wife, American citizen and daughter of a hardcore conservative parents.

    Deadline ^ | September 11, 2017 | Nellie Andreeva
    AMC has put in development a drama based on Wesley Lowery’s bestselling nonfiction book They Can’t Kill Us All: Ferguson, Baltimore, and a New Era in America’s Racial Justice. It comes from Brad Weston’s Makeready and writer LaToya Morgan (Into the Badlands, Turn: Washington’s Spies). Published in 2016 by Little, Brown & Company, the book was acquired by Makeready last fall. It examines how decades of racially biased policing in segregated neighborhoods with failing schools, crumbling infrastructure and too few jobs has led to the high-profile cases of police brutality in Ferguson, Cleveland, Baltimore and elsewhere and the birth of...

    I know it won't last much longer as we climb out of the rubble left behind by Irma, but I cannot help making the observation that the media in Miami, West Palm Beach and the Tampa area have had to STOP their routine Trump bashing. They even are being forced to cover the FACTS of what our Republican governor Rick Scott is doing. Usually they find some reason to nitpick his actions. The worst of it politically has been Demon Rat senator Bill Nelson talking about how it "won't be like Katrina" and RINO Trump haters Carlos Curbelo and Ileana...

    This is the worst fall for new TV shows in the decade I’ve been a professional TV critic. And it’s hard to find one much worse in all the years I’ve been cognizant of “new fall TV” as a concept, since the late ’80s. The comedies didn’t make me laugh. The dramas made me roll my eyes. Even with the boom in platforms making new TV, there’s but one show I’d recommend wholeheartedly and a smattering of others that made me say, “There could be something there if they work out the kinks.” The vast, vast majority of the new...

    Fox News just announced the decision to terminate popular host Eric Bolling amid allegations of inappropriate text messages — but as of Saturday morning, that was the least of Bolling's troubles. Sources are now reporting that Bolling's 19-year-old son, affectionately known as “Eric Chase,” passed away on Friday night. A source close to Eric Bolling confirmed the news to Mediaite. A statement from Fox News is expected soon. Bolling has spoken of his son fondly and often on Twitter: It is clear that Bolling deeply loved his son and took great pride in watching him grow up.

    A re-imagining of Steven J. Cannell’s 1981 cult classic The Greatest American Hero is flying back to development with a new creative team, a big new commitment and a big twist. ABC has given a put pilot commitment to the half-hour single-camera project. In it, the unlikely (super)hero at the center — Ralph Kinley (played by William Katt) in the original series — is Meera, an Indian-American woman. The Greatest American Hero comes from Fresh Off the Boat writer-producer Rachna Fruchbom and Nahnatchka Khan’s Fierce Baby. 20th Century Fox TV, where Fierce Baby is based and Fruchbom recently signed an...

    Kicking off on the night of last year’s election and Donald Trump’s ascension to the Presidency, there was a lot of 2016 in the debut of American Horror Story: Cult. But not the numbers: with 3.93 million viewers and a 2.02 rating among adults 18-49 on September 5, the latest installment of the Ryan Murphy- and Brad Falchuk -created series premiered down significantly from last year’s season opener of American Horror Story: Roanoke. In overall sets of eyeballs watching the politically drenched Cult, there was a 24% drop from the September 14, 2016 premiere of Roanoke. Among the key demo,...
  • Father’s Day ad ..removed from Australian TV for being ‘political’ because no gay dads were featured

    BizPac Review ^ | 09/04/2017 | Tom Tillison
    Is it bad timing or a politically incorrect viewpoint? A Father’s Day ad in Australia featuring a traditional family structure was not aired because it was seen as political intervention in the same-sex marriage debate. The ad, titled “Our Children Our Future,” begins with a father singing a lullaby to his newborn child, which included egregious lyrics like “your mommy and daddy are a perfect team.” The ad, set to run in the lead-up to a nationwide postal vote on same-sex marriage, is sponsored by Dads4Kids, a Christian organization that has run such ads for 15 years — Father’s Days...

    Richard Anderson, the Emmy-nominated actor who played Oscar Goldman in both hit 1970s series “The Six Million Dollar Man” and “The Bionic Woman,” died August 31. He was 91. Anderson’s credits spanned more than 180 film and TV roles over six decades after starting his Hollywood career as a messenger at MGM. But he will be best remembered for playing Goldman, the handler of the bionic duo played by Lee Majors and Lyndsay Wagner. Combined, the series ran for 150 episodes and several TV movies — two of which Anderson produced.

    Joseph Bologna, an actor, playwright and screenwriter who was so memorable as the egotistical King Kaiser in the 1982 comedy classic My Favorite Year, has died. He was 82. Bologna died Sunday morning at City of Hope hospital in Duarte, Calif. He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer three years ago, said his wife of 52 years, actress and screenwriter Renee Taylor. Bologna received an Oscar nomination for adapted screenplay, shared with his wife and David Zelag Goodman, for his work on Lovers and Other Strangers (1970). The couple had first written it for Broadway in a 1968 production directed by...

    Adweek/TVSpy.com ^ | 8/1/17 | Stephanie Tsoflias
    Sinclair’s two stations in Portland, Maine are making headlines for their ‘must run’ segments. The Press Herald posted a story over the weekend that described the stations as ‘being under fire for pro-Trump’ political segments that run on WGME and WPFO. A politically independent viewer, Marc McCutcheon, described the experience of watching the must-runs as “surreal,” “extremely jarring” and “so out of place with the friendly, local broadcast from news people I’ve come to trust over the years.” There was no rebuttal, no context, no alternate point of view – a situation he found concerning.” According to the Herald: WGME-TV...

    McCain said, “I hope we can again rely on humility, on our need to cooperate, on our dependence on each other, to learn how to trust each other again, and by so doing, better serve the people who elected us. Stop listening to the bombastic loudmouths on the radio, television and the internet. To hell with them. They don’t want anything done for the public good. Our incapacity is their livelihood.” He concluded, “We tried to do this by coming up with a proposal behind closed doors in consultation with the administration and then springing it on skeptical members, trying...

    The DuMont Television Network was launched in 1946 and ceased broadcasting in 1956. Allen DuMont, who created the network, preserved most of what it produced in kinescope format. By 1958, however, much of the library had been destroyed to recover the silver content.[1] Most of whatever survived was loaded onto three trucks and dumped into Upper New York Bay in the mid-1970s.[2][3] Since then, there has been extensive research on which DuMont programs have episodes extant. Due to the possibilities that various unknown collectors may be in possession of programs and/or episodes not listed here, and that the sources below...
