Courteney Cox's daughter Coco is the wedding planner? The 50-year-old actress is engaged to Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid, but she admits 10-year-old Coco - who she has with ex-husband David Arquette - spends more time thinking about their nuptials than she does. Asked how their wedding plans are progressing, she said: ''Right now we're just figuring out where. His family is from Ireland, and my mom] is in Alabama and she's not that mobile. So we're trying to find a place that makes sense. Coco spends more time thinking about the wedding than I do. ''She wants to be the maid of honour. She's like, 'I want you to have bridemaids.' I said, 'That's a little different than the norm.' She's demanding certain things! She's like, 'I also told my best friend she could be in the wedding.'

When wrestling fans think back to the days of World Championship Wrestling, negativity is almost always the first port of call. It seems to be in vogue to laugh at WCW, because, let’s face it, the company did some truly laughable things. Towards the end of the promotion’s shelf life in 2001, the place was a complete mess, Nitro was unwatchable, and Pay-Per-Views were a complete wreck.
It’s fascinating to look back on this time, because just a few years prior to WCW’s collapse, the company stood tall as the hottest thing pro wrestling had to offer. Creations such as the nWo caught on quick, and turned the group from a cash-bleeding failure into a money-making success.
It’s not unfair to say that some of the absolute worst moments in wrestling history took place under the WCW banner, including the likes of actor David Arquette winning the World Title, »

The syndie strip “Celebrity Name Game” will return for a second season in the fall.
The Craig Ferguson-hosted syndie gameshow, produced by FremantleMedia North America and distribbed by Debmar-Mercury, has done credible business for stations since its September debut. Key station affiliates Tribune Broadcasting and Sinclair Broadcast Group have given the season-two greenlight, ensuring that the show will stick around through the 2015-16 season.
“ ‘Celebrity Name Game’ came out of the gate with an impressive start, building its audience each week, and showing itself to be a strong contender in syndication,” said FremantleMedia North America CEO Thom Beers.
The show is a rare example in recent years of an original game show launch in syndication rather than a revival of a classic format.
