Saturday Night Live, Ep. 41.01, “Miley Cyrus”

4 October 2015 10:23 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Saturday Night Live, Season 41, Episode 1, “Miley Cyrus

Airs Saturdays at 11:30 pm Et on NBC (East coast version watched for review)

Welcome to PopOptiq’s Saturday Night Live review/recap/extravaganza! Hopefully everyone had a good summer and is excited about discussing the country’s biggest showcase for sketch comedy. On that note, let’s dig right into how horribly season 41 crashed and burned right out of the gate.

Host/Musical Guest: Unless the ratings for this puppy are just gargantuan, Miley Cyrus isn’t going to be hosting anything again anytime soon. The whole point of SNL having a celebrity host is to draw in viewers who are fans of that host and see how they operate in the strange worlds the show’s writers create for them. So rarely does the show push its host to the side, to the point where an argument can be made that »

Arnold Schwarzenegger To Host Us Celebrity Apprentice

14 September 2015 10:20 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With Donald Trump otherwise engaged with the small matter of his bid to become President of the United States, the Us version of Celebrity Apprentice was in need of a new host. And now it has one. It's Arnold Schwarzenegger. Everyone has already made the "You're Terminated" joke.The NBC show has been running for seven seasons with Trump. Like the Comic Relief and Sport Relief editions of the UK version, it involves celebrities working in teams to win challenges, with the lacklustre getting fired until there's only one person standing. Contestants have included Gary Busey, Andrew Dice Clay, Cyndi Lauper, Lou Ferrigno (shame that wasn't in an Arnie season), Steven Baldwin and Vivica Fox, with Piers Morgan, Arsenio Hall and Poison's Brett Michaels among the winners. You don't win a job, obviously. It's all for charity.“We are thrilled to be opening a powerful new chapter in the story of the ‘Apprentice’ franchise, »

First Video from Martin Scorsese's 'Vinyl' Series on HBO

7 August 2015 8:03 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Vinyl promises to be an epic series about 70s era Rock and Roll, and it is arriving from the producers of Boardwalk Empire, Terence Winter and Martin Scorsese, who have teamed-up with iconic Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger to ensure one of the most authentic experiences ever. HBO has finally released the first trailer for Vinyl. And as expected, it promises to be something quite special.

Many were upset that Boardwalk Empire got a truncated final season. One of the purported reasons that happened was because executive producer Terence Winter was a little too eager to begin work on Vinyl. It would once again have him working with Martin Scorsese, whom he collaborated on not just with Boardwalk Empire, but also the extremely popular tue-life thriller The Wolf of Wall Street. And when Mick Jagger jumped into the mix, that pretty much sealed the fate of Nucky Thompson. As a result, »

HBO releases two teasers for their upcoming series ‘Vinyl’

7 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Over the past decade, a number of prominent directors and filmmakers have made the jump from the big screen to television in some capacity. 2010 saw Martin Scorsese join these ranks, as he joined the Terence Winter-created HBO series Boardwalk Empire as an executive producer, directing the pilot as well. With the show coming to an end in 2014 after five seasons, fans of the series were excited to learn that it wouldn’t be the last collaboration between the trio, as Scorsese and Winter would be working together again to create a new show for HBO.

Titled Vinyl, the show will be another period piece, moving from the 1930s to the 1970s, and focusing on the music industry this time. The Rolling Stones band member Mick Jagger will also be joining Scorsese and Winter on the show as a producer, and Scorsese will once again helm the pilot. The show will star Bobby Cannavale, »

First Pictures & Trailer for Martin Scorsese's HBO Series 'Vinyl'

6 August 2015 2:35 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Martin Scorsese is teaming up with Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger and Terence Winter ("Boardwalk Empire") for a 1970s-set HBO series about the period's music scene, and the first teaser for the project has arrived. Interesting, but effective nonetheless. The show is called "Vinyl" and I've included the official synopsis at the bottom of this post, but it's a '70s set series revolving around American Century Records, exploring the period's music scene. Bobby Cannavale heads the fictional record label and is joined by the likes of Ray Romano, Olivia Wilde and James Jagger as the series' main players, while P.J. Byrne, Joe Caniano, Andrew Dice Clay, Max Casella, J.C. MacKenzie, Birgitte Hjort Sorensen, Juno Temple, Jack Quaid, and Paul Ben-Victor round out the cast. While David Fincher's (maybe) forthcoming series "Video Synchronicity" -- a half-hour comedy-drama about the 1980s music video scene in which Fincher first made his »

5 times Entourage predicted the future: From Aquaman to Hollywood's real Ari Golds

14 June 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

HBO comedy-drama Entourage did a genius job of reflecting the realities of Hollywood survival. They hooked up actors and actresses (this happens), they jockeyed around studio chiefs over politics (this also happens) and they put a big-time star in rehab for drug addiction (this definitely happens).

But sometimes creator Doug Ellin and his writing team imitated real life before it happened. Ahead of the show's feature-length movie spinoff - out this month - here are 5 times when Entourage predicted the future...

1. Aquaman the movie (Seasons 2 and 3, 2005-2006)

Imagine a time when Hollywood wasn't smothering us with superheroes every other week. Hard, right? Believe it or not, when Entourage plotted Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) to play DC Comics' Aquaman on the big screen, there was merely a routine Spidey and Superman in sight. The movie even hired the mighty James Cameron to direct, plus Mandy Moore - ahem, Vinny's ex - as Aquagirl. »

‘Entourage’ Opens Solidly With $2 Million on Tuesday Night

3 June 2015 7:19 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros.’ “Entourage” has launched respectably with $2 million in Tuesday night previews that started at 7 p.m.

The comedy is expanding to 3,108 sites Wednesday. Warner Bros. decided in the spring to move the debut forward two days — separating it from 20th Century Fox’s comedy “Spy” and Gramercy’s “Insidious: Chapter 3.” It’s also facing the second weekend of Warner’s “San Andreas,” which dominated the box office in its opening.

Online ticket service Fandango reported Tuesday that “Entourage” had accounted for 50% of its daily sales. Recent projections have placed “Entourage” with forecasts of about $20 million for the Friday-Sunday period, four years after the HBO series ended.

Original cast members Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrara, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon and Jeremy Piven reprise their roles. Series creator Doug Ellin directed from his own script. Mark Wahlberg, Rob Weiss and Stephen Levinson produce.

The film features dozens of cameos including Common, »

Rolling into theaters after the hit HBO comedy series overstayed its welcome with a few underwhelming seasons, the Entourage movie is both a little too late to revitalize the property in any meaningful way, but a nice enjoyable piece of fan service that is both »

Playboy Mansion Hosts ‘The Entourage Movie’ Screening

21 May 2015 9:50 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For a movie that embraces its love of Los Angeles, Wednesday night’s preview screening of Warner Bros.’ “The Entourage Movie” could not have been at a more appropriate locale — Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion in Holmby Hills.

About 50 guests, mostly male, took in the screening aimed at building buzz in advance of the June 3 opening. Hefner did not attend but made sure four Playboy Playmates (Alana Campos, Kayla Collins, Carly Lauren, Heather Rae Young) played host and welcomed guests in style.

Rhys Coiro, who plays Billy Walsh, the director of the fictional “Medellin” movie, was the only cast member to attend.

Private screenings have been held in recent months at Mark Wahlberg’s house in Los Angeles — attended by more than a dozen NBA players — and for the Wisconsin Badgers men’s basketball team and at Seattle Seahawks headquarters on Tuesday.

Laughter dominated throughout the 104-minute playing time, particularly for Kevin Dillon, »

Martha Thomases: Tim McGraw, Frank Cho, Sex and Guns

24 April 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

It’s going to take me a bit to get to comics this week, so please bear with me. We have a lot of outrage to get through first.

Recently, country singer Tim McGraw decided that, when he was in Hartford, Connecticut on his national tour, he would do a benefit concert for the charity Sandy Hook Promise. This organization was started after the shootings at the Sandy Hook elementary school and describes their mission thusly:

“1) Protect children from gun violence so no other parent experiences the loss of their child by engaging and empowering parents and communities with targeted prevention programs in the areas of mental wellness early-identification & intervention, social & emotional development and firearm safety & security.

“2) Help our community through this tragedy by providing resources and programs that foster connection, resiliency and overall wellness.”

Naturally, all hell broke lose.

Read More: Watch: 'Entourage' Movie Reveals First Trailer, Fake Trailer & Mark Wahlberg Fans who have been anticipating the big screen adaptation of HBO's hugely successful "Entourage," ever since the comedy series signed off the air in September 2011, can finally see just how huge Vince, Eric, Turtle, Johnny Drama and Ari will be on the big screen, thanks to a hilarious, cameo-packed new trailer.

While the trailer hints at some of the plot developments -- mainly Vince's attempt to direct his first feature and Eric and Sloan's pregnancy -- the trailer ultimately belongs to the endless parade of guest stars.

This week in TV news: The Academy hands down rulings on hourlong comedies

21 March 2015 11:21 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Following a ruling last month that the Television Academy would only consider half hour shows eligible for the comedy category at the Emmys, a panel of nine analysts have now begun handing down the rulings for exemptions in the selection process. The panel, which was set up to determine the category assignment of hour-long shows that appealed their placement in drama, has now ruled, as per Variety, that the Fox show Glee, the Showtime series Shameless, and the CW series Jane The Virgin can compete as comedies at the upcoming primetime Emmys. The decision will apply to all categories, from Acting to Directing, and so on.

One show that notably wasn’t granted a waiver, however, is the Netflix serial Orange Is The New Black. The series, which revolves around the inhabitants of a women’s prison, was categorised as a comedy at last year’s Primetime Emmys, where it picked up three wins. »

Andrew Dice Clay Reality Series Lands At Showtime

20 March 2015 1:37 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Divisive comic Andrew Dice Clay is determined to revive his career, and he may have finally secured a path to glory. The Las Vegas stand-up is set to star in a six-episode, half-hour series for Showtime that Variety claims will use Clay’s “rags-to-riches-to-rags trajectory” as “fodder” for the show.

A semi-autobiographical scripted series – there’s an oxymoron – Clay will shoot this summer in Vegas and follow the once-famous superstar as he tries to maintain a family life whilst rebuilding his failing career.

The show was created by writer Scot Armstrong (The Hangover Part II) and Fox 21 TV Studios, with Fox execs apparently funding a presentation for Showtime out of their own pockets. Both Clay and Armstrong will executive produce the series along with Daybreakers‘ duo Sean and Bryan Furst, Richard Shepard and Bruce Rubenstein.
