  • Super Bowl LV Won’t Be In 4K Or HDR Thanks To COVID-19

    Last year’s Super Bowl, between the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs, was shown in 4K, for Fox’s broadcast of the game. But this year’s game won’t be, according to a report Thursday. The Verge reported, based on confirmation from CBS Sports Digital, that Super Bowl LV will not be streaming in 4K or HDR. CBS told the site that it “remains committed to offering more live sports in 4K and HDR in the future.” Why not? It appears to be due to a delay in deployment of the technology, caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
  • Nolte: Woke Nazis Target ‘Cobra Kai’ for Destruction as Too White

    It was only a matter of time before the anti-art Woke Nazis targeted Cobra Kai for annihilation. After all, this is what these monsters do: target everything we all love, everything universal so that it becomes divisive. As I’ll explain in detail below, these attacks on Cobra Kai for being too white have nothing to do with “diversity.” The real goal is to keep us as divided as possible by stringing partisan tripwires through every possible walk of life.

    Throughout the last year, there’s been a great deal of rancor related to Chinese-owned tech companies that do business in the United States. The Trump administration spent the better part of 2020 attempting to ban the Chinese-owned TikTok. The U.S. government has also devoted energies in recent years to cracking down on Chinese-made smartphone manufacturers Huawei and ZTE, with the FCC, last summer, declaring both companies threats to national security. More recently, security researchers discovered what they described as a “Chinese backdoor” in TCL’s Android TVs that are sold in the United States. The acting secretary of homeland security, Chad...

  • How Vince Guaraldi’s Timeless Jazz Song Became a Cherished American Standard Because of Charlie Brown

    American Songwriter ^ | 12/19 | Paul Zollo
    `Linus and Lucy’ and other music he created for the Charlie Brown TV Specials reverberate forever in the American heart It’s great music to hear anytime, but especially this time of year. It’s the late jazz composer Vince Guaraldi’s joyful music for the Charlie Brown TV specials. His song, “Linus and Lucy” has become the main theme of all the Charlie Brown specials, though it was first used in the Charlie Brown Christmas special. Nobody had ever used a soundtrack of hip piano jazz for an animated feature before this. Composers such as the great Carl Stalling did compose tremendously...

    The latest installment of the Netflix chronicle of the royals seeks to slime Margaret Thatcher, but the Charles-Diana soap opera undermines the series’ political slant.Since its debut in 2016, fans of the Netflix series “The Crown” have been looking forward to when this depiction of the life of Queen Elizabeth II would take the story of the royal family and British politics into the 1980s. For Americans who love the show because it satisfies their yen for celebrity gossip with a gloss of politics and social commentary, the arrival of Princess Diana as a major character was highly anticipated.Much of...

    The 2020 American Music Awards delivered a big decline in rating and total viewership from last year, falling to record lows in both measurements. Last night’s awards show, which was hosted by “Empire” star Taraji P. Henson and saw Taylor Swift, The Weeknd and Dan + Shay emerge as the big winners, averaged a 0.9 rating among adults 18-49 and around 3.8 million total viewers. That represents a 50% rating decline and a 43% loss in total viewership. For comparison, last years AMAs were down only 4% on the year prior in the ratings column, and in fact gained around...

    In a year devoid of blockbuster movies in theaters, Disney has sought to rival Netflix as the leader in on-demand streaming, but questions remain about its approach.

 Bob Chapek, CEO of the Walt Disney Company, will later today deliver to investors the entertainment giant’s annual report. Even worse than the rest of Hollywood, Disney has been hit hard by the pandemic and ensuing lockdowns. Most theme parks remain shuttered, tens of thousands of employees have been laid off, and revenue from theatrical film releases has gone from billions in 2019 to nearly zero this year. It’s no accident that today...

    Because he made them feel at home, Americans welcomed Alex Trebek into their homes, night after night, for good-natured entertainment. The audience takes its seats, members murmuring amongst themselves. Some comment on how the soundstage looks smaller in person than on the small screen, an optical illusion caused by wide-angle lenses. Others note the set’s cool temperatures, intended to offset the stage lights’ heat. As the production staff provide information and instructions about what they are about to see, the guests just take it all in. Preliminaries concluded—audience briefed, crew in position—the theme music starts, the lights come up, and...

    For your weekend viewing pleasure: Rod Serling was a brilliant man, and it’s interesting to compare his concerns about freedom of speech and censorship with what is going on in the US today. I’ve often watched old Twilight Zone episodes, and wondered how our modern ‘liberals’ could have traveled so far from the great wisdom inherent in those stories: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpKkHCVbSyw(In the early days of cinema, someone said that 'movies' had the potential to inspire and raise up the idealistic nature of individuals to great heights, and to change the world. I think that has been true, to a great extent;...

    In the latest TV ratings, Fox’s coverage of the World Series opener between the Dodgers and Rays averaged 7.2 million total viewers and a Tuesday-topping 1.8 demo rating — though down sharply from the preliminary numbers (11.6 mil/2.9) for last year’s Nationals/Astros Game 1. Check back later for the final tally! NBC | The Voice (7.5 mil/1.0) was down a tick from Monday’s premiere, but teed up Transplant for Stateside highs of 4.3 mil/0.6. ABC | The Bachelorette (4.1 mil.1.1) slipped about 20 percent from last week. Leading out of that, a Supermarket Sweeeeeeep! encore did 1.8 mil and a...

    The long-running reality television series Cops, which was pulled off the air earlier this year amid protests over police brutality and the death of George Floyd, has quietly resumed production. The show was canceled at the Paramount Network in June, but Cops is once again back in production. The new season will not air on a network in the United States. The new season is being made as the show's producers fulfill their commitments to television networks overseas which have already bought the program.

    The Virginian's James Drury Discusses Life On The Popular Western The Virginian was a Western TV show that ran from 1962 to 1971.

    As if the Academy Awards wasn’t enough, ABC Entertainment recently announced a new set of “inclusion standards” regarding their primetime programs. It’s yet another installment of the left trying to ruin everything it touches. On September 30, ABC Executive Vice President of Development and Content Strategy Simran Sethi released a new list of standards regarding on-screen talent, creative leadership, set workers, and industry representation. She wrote broadly, “[W]e want to take this moment to evaluate systems and habits in an effort to remove barriers to access and opportunity. It’s important for us to look around the room, see who’s not...

    Police arrested a woman who hit a man with a beer bottle during a political argument. Sioux Falls police say Kamie Jo Roesler, 28, of Columbia, South Carolina, was arrested Sunday afternoon and charged with aggravated assault. The incident happened at a home in the 1100 block of N. Prairie Avenue. Police say Roesler was arguing with a 32-year-old man from Colton about politics. During the fight, Roesler hit the man with a beer bottle, cutting his face. The victim refused assistance from emergency responders on the scene but sought it elsewhere on his own. Roesler is a former KSFY-TV...

    Dismissed by some critics as a needless origin story, HBO's 'Perry Mason' reboot is exactly the type of high-minded storytelling we need today. This article contains spoilers. The man from the country has not expected such difficulties: the law should always be accessible for everyone, he thinks, but as he now looks more closely at the gatekeeper in his fur coat, his large pointed nose and his long, thin, black Tartar’s beard, he decides that it would be better to wait until he gets permission to go inside. — Franz Kafka, “Before The Law” Franz Kafka hated the draconian bureaucracies...
