    (Angry Patriot) Ė During her tenure at Fox News, Megyn Kelly and Bill OíReilly were constantly at each otherís throats ó often over her selfish attitude and need to make everything about her.

All of the drama surrounding Kelly is coming out in the open after she tore up her contract with Fox News, with some months still remaining on it. Kelly was on a break from Fox News...
  • A FReeper watches "Beauty and the Beast" (2017)

    Having bought premium tickets in advance of the "gay moment" revelation, I ended up seeing Disney's remake of Beauty and the Beast. No point in wasting good money over an alleged 2-second problem in a 2-hour movie. FWIW, I saw the standard-format 2D version. WARINING: SPOILERS. Not that you're really going to find them spoiling, since you already know the story and the hysteria, but if you're worried about spoilers anyway then stop here already. Overall, it was a worthy remake of the hit animated film we all recall. The new generation is growing up with photorealistic animation (vs hand-drawn...

Nonetheless, it is true that ESPN will be cutting $100 million in salaries -- most from very recognizable on-air talent -- in a cost-cutting move to shore up their bottom line.

    On Showtime's "Billions," the character of U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades is based on U.S. Attorney for Southern District of New York, Preet Bharara. In fact, the show itself is loosely based on Bharara's investigations of Wall Street. Well, Bharara was just fired from his job so the question is will Chuck Rhoades also be fired from his job on "Billions?" He almost got fired on "Billions" by an Attorney General obviously based on Loretta Lynch. In fact, he deserves to be fired because although he recused himself from the investigation of Hedge Fund manager Bobby Axelrod, he was secretly directing...

They were the behind-the-scenes directors, producers and back-office personnel who never appeared on-air. Things will be a lot different this time. It won't be Suzy in accounting losing her job.

An early Sunday morning power outage at the data companyís Oldsmar, FL facility continues to kneecap reporting of viewership and adults 18-49 demographic numbers for the Big 4 and the CW for a third day in a row. The lack of those fast affiliates and more is frustrating the nets. Right now, they...

    Actress Anne Hathaway called out what she described as Hollywoodís double standards for women in an interview for this monthís cover story of Elle magazine. ďHollywood is not a place of equality.

    Anyone whoís seen My Cousin Vinny, which opened 25 years ago, on March 13, 1992, can probably quote at least one of Marisa Tomeiís Brooklyn-accented lines * snip * So itís mind-boggling that 20th Century Fox initially wanted to take Mona Lisa out of My Cousin Vinny entirely, in order to give more of the spotlight to Pesci.

    Rachel Maddow can trace the mood of her audience by looking at the ratings. Her MSNBC showís viewership sank like a stone in the weeks following Donald Trumpís election, as depressed liberals avoided politics, and bottomed out over the holidays. Slowly, they re-emerged, becoming active and interested again. Maddowís audience has grown to the point where February was her showís most-watched month since its 2008 launch. Maddow has emerged as the favorite cable news host for presidential resistors in the opening days of the Trump administration, just as Fox News Channelís Sean Hannity is one for supporters or Keith Olbermann...

    President Trump has unfollowed "Morning Joe" anchors Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski on Twitter. A CNN report, which recorded all of the Twitter users the president followed March 6, had the MSNBC co-hosts on the list. At some point in the next six days, Trump unfollowed them. Criticized for being too cozy with Trump during the beginning of the presidential campaign, Scarborough and Brzezinski have been sharply critical of the president in recent weeks. An unnamed adviser told the Associated Press in February that the decrease in Trump's early-morning tweets were a result of the president no longer watching "Morning...
