    DirecTV said that it was adding the conservative channel The First to its lineup, after it dropped Newsmax from its lineup in a dispute that stirred the ire of Republican lawmakers on Capitol Hill. The First, which features personalities including Bill O’Reilly and Dana Loesch, will be available on DirecTV, DirecTV Stream and U-verse at no extra fees for subscribers. Up to now, it has been available only through streaming distribution, including on FAST networks. The announcement comes as Newsmax went dark on DirecTV. The satellite service owned by AT&T and private equity firm TPG blamed the removal on Newsmax’s...

    What if no one canceled self destruct? Let That Be Your Last Battlefield aired 5 years after Dr. Strangelove. But notice the similar extreme zoom-ins to control panels and exterior shots. Was this episode a parody? This is my own edit mashup. I couldn’t find the original music score from the Kubrick film so I recomposed it by ear for this project.
  • Don Lemon's Morning Show Has Worst Week Ever, But That Wasn't the Only Failure CNN Suffered

    CNN and its heavily anti-conservative narratives laced throughout most of its programming lineup have proven to be an absolute loser of a strategy. That strategy might have worked when former President Donald Trump was in office, as the Trump Derangement Syndrome was strong during those years, and CNN’s sheep-like viewers couldn’t seem to get enough. But the glory days of above-average ratings for the left-leaning network are long over, and, honestly, it’s incredible that they’re even still in business. Fox News reported that Don Lemon, one of the few recognizable names left at CNN, is suffering in the wake of...

    TV star Lance Kerwin has died at age 62. The small-screen actor — who appeared in the 1970s series “James at 16” and the made-for-TV movie “Salem’s Lot” — passed away Tuesday in California. The sad news was announced on Facebook by his daughter, Savanah. A cause of death has not been disclosed. “We appreciate all the kind words, memories, and prayers that have been shared,” his daughter wrote. “As the coming weeks progress, I will share more information about after-life ceremonies.” Kerwin was born in 1960 in Newport Beach, California. The youngest of five brothers, he grew up in...

    Alec Baldwin will remain as the star of the movie “Rust” as it restarts production, the movie’s lawyer has confirmed. The 64-year-old actor will be charged with involuntary manslaughter in the 2021 death of Halyna Hutchins, despite previously insisting he did not pull the trigger. Hutchins’ widower Matt, who shared his 10-year-old son Andros with the late cinematographer, will stay on as the film’s executive producer — a role he took on as part of the wrongful death lawsuit that was settled for an undisclosed amount in October. “Rust” will also see its director Joel Souza return, despite being injured...

    Amazon founder Jeff Bezos responded to a report Monday that claimed that he was considering selling The Washington Post so he could purchase an NFL team from an owner who hates the newspaper. The New York Post reported that Bezos is looking to potentially buy the Washington Commanders from team owner Dan Synder. Snyder, however, despises the newspaper because it reported on the alleged toxic management of the NFL franchise. After the report was published on Monday, representatives for Bezos and The Washington Post both told CNN that the newspaper was not for sale. The New York Post report comes...

    For decades, the animated M&M's candy mascots dominated small screen ads. Whether they're fainting from seeing Santa, griping about each other in board meetings, or trying to disable a rocket, the multi-colored characters are used to bringing their shenanigans to audiences at large. This might be why so many people were immediately up in arms after the company announced the iconic spokescandies are being replaced by comedy queen Maya Rudolph for an upcoming Super Bowl ad, saying it's all an effort to sidestep past controversies. News of Maya Rudolph's partnership with the M&M's brand came via a statement from the...

Pollard suffered the injury with 1:24 left in the first half of the Cowboys' 19-12 divisional round loss to the San Francisco 49ers when he was rolled up after an 8-yard catch. Pollard needed help to the sideline and was wearing an Aircast on his left leg as he was carted to the X-ray room inside Levi's Stadium. He was subsequently ruled out for the game. "That hurt," Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott said. "Just a guy...

    The Golden Globes carpet typically glitters with crystal-studded gowns in pastel hues, but it looked different in January 2018: The ballgowns were black, and the night’s key accessory was a pin that read “Time’s Up.” Onstage, Oprah Winfrey brought guests to their feet with a warning to powerful abusers: “Their time is up!” Five years later, Time’s Up — the now-embattled anti-harassment organization founded with fanfare during the early days of the #MeToo reckoning against sexual misconduct — is ceasing operations, at least in its current form. A year after pledging a “major reset” following a scandal involving its leaders’...

    Season 1 of House of the Dragon is over, and it is time to take stock. Inevitably, viewers of the HBO series compare it to season 1 of Game of Thrones, which seem to win effortlessly by comparison. For starters, some viewers said that though they loved the prequel, they felt kind of bored with it. Season 1 for them seemed to lack that spark that made Game of Thrones so exciting and interesting to watch. "I'm not saying I hate it, but I'm not excited to watch it. No one is talking about it at lunch. I don't think...
