    It felt like a little bit of history was being made on Monday Night Football as the Tennessee Titans finally snapped their streak of 11 consecutive losses to the Indianapolis Colts. However, as social media sparked with ESPN not showing the playing of the national anthem, another type of history was also being made: Last night’s primetime broadcast of the Titans’ 36-22 victory stumbled to a season low with a 6.1 in metered market results. In a season stained by overall ratings declines and political controversy, that NFL Week 6 rating is down 13% from the early numbers of the...

    FULL TITLE: Abortion Activists Dress in Creepy “Handmaid’s Tale” Costumes to Protest Trump Protecting Pro-Life Christians Dressed in red robes from the dystopian novel “Handmaid’s Tale,” abortion activists protested Saturday against the pro-life policies of the Donald Trump administration. A small group protested on the steps of the Washington State Capitol in Olympia, wearing red robes and white hoods and claiming they are being oppressed because pro-life advocates are trying to keep unborn babies from being killed. According to Crosscut, similar protests were scheduled across the United States as part of a “50 Handmaids in 50 States” event. Abortion activists...

    Alyssa Milano started the social media movement #MeToo Sunday afternoon to shed light on the widespread problem of sexual assault, harassment and rape. The crusade Sunday began when she tweeted a note from a friend that said, "If all the women who have been sexually harassed or assaulted wrote 'Me too' as a status, we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem."

    Declining football game television ratings will cut into Twenty-First Century Fox's earnings, according to one Wall Street firm. Credit Suisse lowered its price target and earnings per share forecasts for the media company, citing Fox's poor Sunday NFL ratings. "We trim our 2018/19 EPS forecasts … ahead of Q1 earnings," analyst Omar Sheikh wrote in a note to clients Thursday. "The key near term headwinds are soft NFL ratings and the risk that the Sky transaction is blocked by UK regulators."

    Do you believe in pitiful? Renowned sports broadcaster Al Michaels awkwardly injected Harvey Weinstein’s ongoing sexual assault scandal into NBC’s Giants-Broncos telecast Sunday night, comparing the Hollywood bigwig’s transgressions to the level of turmoil the Giants had experienced this past week. The Giants lost four starting receivers to injury in their loss to the Chargers last week, including season-ending injuries to Odell Beckham Jr., Brandon Marshall and Dwayne Harris. The Giants also suspended Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie indefinitely after a meeting between Rodgers-Cromartie and coach Ben McAdoo. “I mean, let’s face it. The Giants are coming off a worse week than Harvey...

    The actor — whose Tribeca Film Institute took a donation from those accused of embezzlement, while his son sold the prime suspect $55 million in NYC real estate — says he would give back the money if necessary. Leonardo DiCaprio is undoubtedly the highest-profile Hollywood name connected to the 1MDB Malaysian corruption scandal, which, in addition to more than a billion dollars of alleged money laundering, helped to finance his hit drama The Wolf of Wall Street. But another A-list name has appeared several times in the same orbit as the central figures in the fraud case, which is now...

    Even though Edie was totally detestable on “Desperate Housewives,” something tells me that Nicollette Sheridan didn’t deserve the palm-to-the-face allegedly delivered by her boss, producer Marc Cherry. She’s currently suing the studio for damages and wrongful termination after Cherry killed off her character shortly after their kerfuffle. After Teri Hatcher also supposedly complained about Cherry’s abuse, he allegedly said, “I hope [she] gets hit by a car and dies.” Geez, he must be a great guy to work for. Hollywood seems to be a breeding ground for tyranny and narcissism. Here are nine more of the scariest bosses in Tinsel...
  • Roku begins programming content with the launch of an ad-supported movie channel

    Roku just took its first step into programming with the launch of a free movie channel it’s calling the Roku Channel. Thanks to a series of licensing deals, Roku’s channel will feature movies from major Hollywood studios like Lionsgate, MGM, Sony Pictures Entertainment, and Warner Bros., Variety reports. The Roku Channel’s available films, like Legally Blonde and The Karate Kid, are easy to find elsewhere, but this is the first time the company has licensed a large number of movies for a Roku-branded channel. "The Roku Channel is definitely a channel" This move is likely part of Roku’s plan to...

  • Cases in Movies or TV where Actor was Uglier than Real Person He Portrayed

    In almost all instances actors portraying real life people look better (often much better) than their counterparts. Sometimes it is shocking to check what real life people look like after watching the actors portray them. However there is one instance I can think of where the actor portraying a real life person was actually uglier than the person he was portraying. That would be in the movie "The Fifth Estate" about Julian Assange and Wikileaks. And who portrayed Julian Assange? Benedict Cumberbatch who looks weird and frightening. I know that Assange hated that movie. I wonder if part of the...

    As we all know modern technologies are moving forward at rapid-fire pace. Every day we use smartphones and laptops, get service from robots, AI is among us. Japan is no exception. On the contrary, this country probably is the most technologically advanced country. And the most fecally-challenged robot in the world was made in Japan. Maywa Denki Corporation of the Novmichi Tosa company presented its new creation DORODOROBO, a robot that walks around spewing diarrhea out the top of its head. No, you didn't read it wrong. Spewing diarrhea. Literally.
