41 minutes ago

“Big Brother” fell 11 percent in TV ratings with its Season 19 start, setting a new low mark for a premiere in the process. Still, the two-hour show was strong enough to hand CBS an outright win across Wednesday’s primetime. Head-to-head during the 8 p.m. hour, NBC’s “Little Big Shots: Forever Young” actually finished first in total viewers. It was a rare swap for the two broadcasters, with NBC skewing old and CBS going young. CBS was first in ratings with a 1.4 rating/6 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 5.1 million, according »

41 minutes ago

Samantha Bee took on the Senate health care bill on “Full Frontal” Wednesday night, breaking down the benefits of Medicaid while also discussing the true nature of the bill. “Turns out, 13 rich white guys alone in a room isn’t how good legislation happens. It’s how ‘Suicide Squad’ happens,” she said, although she adds that it’s even worse than that. Bee pointed out that gutting Medicaid isn’t an Obamacare repeal, but a Johnsoncare repeal, since President Lyndon B. Johnson was the one that signed the bill that resulted in both Medicaid and Medicare into law. Also Read: »

1 hour ago

TLC’s “90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?” subject Anfisa suddenly wants a post-nuptial agreement — one that specifically seems to work solely in her favor. “I think I deserve more than 50 percent, no matter when we divorce,” she says on Sunday’s episode, when Anfisa and Jorge meet with mediators. “I think I deserve everything, and he’s not going to take it from me.” “Let’s be fair,” Anfisa tells her timid hubby, who really wants nothing to do with this idea. “Let’s put on the post-nup that you’re going to buy me a 100,000 ring, like you promised me. »

Dwayne Johnson Battles Hippos in ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ Trailer (Video)

2 hours ago

Sony Pictures dropped the first trailer for “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” on Thursday, and apart from CGI rampaging animals, this reboot looks nothing like the original 1995 hit family adventure that starred the late Robin Williams. Joe Johnston’s original was about a board game that opened a portal to an alternate, wild universe. The redo swaps that board game for a classic, ’90s-era video game console that transports a group of misbehaving teens into the game itself where they take on alter-ego avatars played by Dwayne Johnson, Kevin HartJack Black and Karen Gillan. In Johnston’s film, no actor swapping occurred. »

2 hours ago

President Donald Trump took his attack on mainstream media personalities to a shockingly ad hominem place on Thursday, sending out a pair of tweets about MSNBC morning hosts “Psycho” Joe Scarborough and “low I.Q. Crazy” Mika Brzezinski. “She was bleeding badly from a face-lift,” he wrote of an encounter with Brzezinski he claims he had in Florida weeks before his inauguration.

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Review: Marvel-Fueled Reboot Has a Good Sense of Spidey

3 hours ago

Spider-Man’s powers are strength, heightened senses, web-shooting, wall-climbing, and, apparently, reincarnation. After three successful Raimi-Maguire movies that aren’t as old as you think, and two Webb-Garfield installments that were shiny, glitzy placeholders, the Marvel Universe has, like a thirsty arachnid, pulled one of the brand’s oldest, beloved trademarks back into the interconnected fold with “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” a sixth movie that really wants to be your first and favorite. To that end, it’s packaged like a fast-food menu of the things you love from Marvel movies: suit gags, winking humor, colorful showdowns, an identity crisis, two post-credit scenes (one being the. »

What Happens if the Media Defies White House Camera Ban?

14 hours ago

CNN host Don Lemon suggested this week that the White House press corps defy the White House camera ban, and turn on their cameras during the daily briefings. Reporters could certainly do that, but the White House would be within its rights to kick them out because reporters probably don’t have a First Amendment right to film or even attend the briefings, experts said. “Having a seat at a White House briefing is a privilege, not a right,” Lucy Dalglish, dean of the University of Maryland journalism school, told TheWrap.
